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 know what is Self-realisation?


Sri Swami Vishwananda:
So you want Self-realisation, eh? (People:”Yes.”)
Eh? (louder:”Yes!”) I don't think so... (laughing)
Human beings are so to proud to even ask for Self-realisation!
First let us clean ourselves.
We ask for something, we don't even know, what it is.
Or how do you know, what is Self-realisation?
You have read it in books, you have heard somebody talking about it?
Do you know, what it is?? Eh? (laughing)
So, why do you ask for something, that you don't know!?

He has given you His sweet name.
He have given you His form to meditate on.
Know that the mind has to be focused on Him completely, first.
Then, you will know what is Self-realisation.
Then, you will know what is surrender.
