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 pure in your mind

Today Sri Swami Vishwananda is talking about purity. When we are really pure in the heart and in the mind, there will be no more judgmenet- not towards us, but also not towards other. We will not criticize anymore, because we don't know the reasons or the heart of the other person or why he or she is reacting how we perceive it as the 'observer'.

Devotee 11: Guruij, when we hav
e to rise beyond ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and there is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and we want to be perfect, what is purity in that?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Purity is the state of your mind; so how you think of things. 
If you think of something is pure, it will be. 
But purity is not the way what you understand of purity. 
What do you understand of purity? 
Tell me firstly. 

Devotee 11: I always make the decision or the distinction between ‘good’ and ‘bad’

Sri Swami Vishwananda: So...

Devotee 11: to judge and..,

Sri Swami Vishwananda: So, how can you be pure? 
That’s what is said in the Bible also: Be pure in the mind. 
You still have the judgment like that. 
Devotee 11: Hm

Sri Swami Vishwananda (laughing): Purity is a word only.

Be inspired by a wonderful video, that in my opinion has
 a very puriyfing influence on body, mind and soul:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ0h1sb1IFI

Many have wondered who the Divine Mother is, yet she is part of all spiritual traditions as a Presence. This video was created as a communication of her Being.
