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.

Babaji's gift for all of us

Sri Swami Vishwananda is telling us the story, of how Babaji manifested a gift for a devoted Lady.

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Now I tell a you story: There’s a lady who also is a very close devotee with Babaji.
So one day, when she was always around Babaji.
One day when she was leaving the place where Babaji, she needed to go somewhere.
Babaji called her and said, “Here.”
Babaji, just picked a stone, and gave it to her.
To receive something directly from Babaji was very great, because He doesn’t give personal gifts to everybody
. He will not come to you and say, “Oh here take this for you.”
He can if He really want, but only rarely He does that.
This lady was so happy to get a stone from Babaji.
And Babaji just put His hand over the stone.
It was like a light.
It print imprinted the Aum (OM) sign on the stone.

Devotee 2: What a gift.

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Well…then Babaji said, “ Keep this gift, till the time I come to you and tell you to whom (laughing) to give it.” (laughter).

Mahavatar Babaji is the name given to an Indian Saint by Lahiri Mahasaya and several of his disciples who met Mahavatar Babaji between 1861 and 1935. Some of these meetings were described by Paramahansa Yogananda in his book "Autobiography of a Yogi"(1946), including a first hand telling of Yogananda’s own meeting with Mahavatar Babaji. Another first hand account was given by Sri Yukteswar Giriin his book "The Holy Science".All of these accounts, along with additional meetings with Mahavatar Babaji, are described in various biographies of those mentioned by Yogananda. Mahavatar Babaji’s given name and date of birth are not known, so those who met him during that period all called him by the title first given to him by Lahiri Mahasaya. "Mahavatar" means "great avatar", and "Babaji" simply means "revered father". Some of the encounters included two or more witnesses—discussions between those who met Mahavatar Babaji indicate that they all met the same person.(Source: Wikipedia)
