About this Blog

This Blog is a collection of excerpts from talks given by Sri Swami Vishwananda. Please note that this Blog does not focus on dates, background and the exact original way of how Swamiji delivered the speech. We edit the talks slightly, presenting them in a kind of “poetic” format. This means we choose certain paragraphs from a talk which reflect a particular theme.
Read them as pieces of Divine Wisdom, meditate upon the words and just feel how Swamiji is addressing you with His words.

Israel trip part 4 / Experience is always good

Here the forth excerpt of Sri Swami Vishwananda's speech referring to his trip to Israel:

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
I was talking to somebody today. This person asked me a question last January and of course I had given him my answer, that I had to give him, but he chose to do his way, which is also nice, you know? So today, as I was talking to him on the phone, he was always complaining:
“Oh Swamiji, I should have listened to you, all this and that…” So much, but I said “Well, look, what is done is done. You can’t change it.” But one thing you can do: You have learned a lot from that experience and now you know what you have to do. You could have made it much easier by listening, but you have made experience. You have learned. It was good for your learning, because sometimes, if you just tell somebody something, it is easy, but they will not get anything. It’s like when you tell a child “Don’t put your hand in fire, you will get burned.” But if the child has never burnt himself, do you think he will know what is burning? No. And always there will be this want to put the hand in the fire, because he wants to know what is burning. So experience, whether it’s good or bad is a learning process. Learning what your soul needs to know. And if you tune yourself to the right tune, to the right frequency of your soul, you will learn it very quickly. It’s a matter of what you want.
