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.

Be loyal and obedient towards your Master!

Sri Swami Vishwananda about what it takes to have a harmonic Guru-disciple-relationship:

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
When the disciple comes into contact with the master, the disciple has to be...? Loyal! Loyalty!
Loyalty not only towards the master, but loyalty also towards oneself!
It’s only through loyalty towards yourself, that you will be able to be loyal towards your master and towards the outside.
The second thing you need is: obedience.
Obedience doesn’t mean slavery- Because, often people think that to be obedient is just to become the slave of the master.
No! It’s the opposite actually.
Like I said before: it’s not you, who is the slave of the master; but it’s the master, who is the slave of you.
But in the mind you have ignorance, you have the pride, the ego... all these things- That's why you have to listen to one who has already overcome it!

A wonderful video of a great Master and one of our Gurujis- Shirdi Sai Baba:
