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.

We are all Yogis

Another excerpt of Sri Swami Vishwananda's recent Speech on the 26th December 2009.

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
We are all Yogis but we have to be free. What is a Yogi? It is somebody who is – free! But yet when we see our limitation we see that we are not free. Whenever a fear arises, whenever a thought of: ”Oh, I should have done this, I have not done that”, you know, we run around always in circles. We don’t free ourselves, because we are scared. We are scared to look at that limitation.

What if this limitation is everything? No, what you have to do is to face it. You know very well that this limitation is not you. It is not that for which purpose you are here for. Face it. Look deep into the eyes of this limitation and let go of it. As long as you don’t look deep into the eyes and face it by yourself you will always be into this game. Unless you like it! I don’t know, you have the free will of choice about that.

Like a great Sufi said: You have the choice of life to take this way or that way. It is your choice. You are free in that choice. But you will come to a point where the Yogi which is inside of you, the greatness which is inside of you, will have to take the choice also.
Your true self will have to take the choice. And this true choice of which is inside of you will overtake the limitation of what you think it is.
