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.

Do you accept yourself how you are?

Devotee 5: Swamiji, why do people then feel the need for an ego?
What is the problem really?
Because it’s not that they want to specifically be a bad person, to be egoistic.
But there must be a reason why people after all these centuries, since the Vedas, don’t change and don’t share.
So the ego- there mustbe some reason for it.
They are afraid or there must be something.
Not that they are bad, but something why they can’t do it….

Sri Swami Vishwananda: No, there’s nothing. Well, did I say they are bad? (laughing)

Devotee 5: No, but the ego like... What is the obstacle not to be in the ego?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Because no one wants to look at himself.
How many people really accept themselves how they are? Hm?
No, I am asking.
Accept everything.
I ask you this question now – Do you accept yourself how you are?

Devotee 5: No, I don’t think...

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Like you, many will answer the same thing.
As long as you don’t…

Devotee 6: It’s hard

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Aha. (laughter) (laughing)
When this ‘difficult’ is gone, when you don’t see it as a difficulty, then you will know the answer for that.

A beautiful way to start your day:
Just smile and watch :-)
