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.

The correct level of truth

During a Satsang a participant asked Sri Swami Vishwananda about the correct level of truth that we should live in our daily life.
Read here what Guruji answered.

Devotee 13: Guruji, what is the level of truth that we should live, because sometimes, if we really know who we are and we believe in what we are, we can go all the way, but sometimes if we use all the truth, we can pass to pain already, we can give pain to the others.
What is the correct level of truth?

Sri Swami Vishwananda:(smiling) If you are in truth, you don’t need to bother about hurting anybody (smiling), because you will not hurt anybody.
But as long as you are not into that, you will hurt somebody and then it’s the pride.
And also somebody who is in such truth will never discuss about himself.
So…what about level into that?
It’s difficult for me to say (smiling), because with any judgment you put on yourself, you limit yourself.

See on the right side a picture of the ancient egyptian Goddess "Ma'at". She was the Goddess of truth, balance, order, law, morality and justice, who was also regulating the stars, seasons and the actions both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation.

Ma'at, Goddess of Truth, Balance, Order...

Ma'at, unlike Hathor and Nephthys, seemed to be more of a concept than an actual goddess. Her name, literally, meant 'truth' in Egyptian. She was truth, order, balance and justice personified. She was harmony, she was what was right, she was what things should be. It was thought that if Ma'at didn't exist, the universe would become chaos, once again!
