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.

Radha's Love for Krishna

Today we are very happy to share with you Sri Swami Vishwananda's nice message about Radharani, the greatest Devotee of Sri Krishna. That's why they are often depicted together, because they are actually One - RadhaKrishna.

Sri Swami Vishwananda:

Radhas Love was so much intense for Krishna, that people, the other Gopis, the other girls in Brindavan would tease Her.
They would tease Her by calling Her Krishna, but She wouldn’t mind.
She was older than Krishna, but yet Her love for Krishna was not a Mother’s love, was not a friend’s love, but it was a Lover’s Love.
A real lover, who not only says “I love you, I love you”, and then it doesnt mean anything, like nowadays so many people say “I love you, I love you”, and then they really don’t mean it.
They don’t even have Love in it. They just use, how to say, pure words.
But Her love- She didn't even need to say it to Krishna, Krishna would run towards Her.
In Brindavan from childhood the gopis have seen Krishna.
They have been mesmerized or enchanted by Krishna’s beauty since childhood.
They have been looking at Him in different ways.
When He was a child everybody looked at Him as a child.
When He started growing up, everybody looked at Him as their little brother and the mothers would look at Him as a child.
This is the Maya of the Lord Himself.
But Radha, for Her, from the beginning was Her love, the moment She has seen Krishna, it was Her love.
And that's what makes Radha different from the other Gopis.
The other Gopis never had that from the beginning, but She had it.

And here a beautiful video. Watch it and open your heart to this incredible Divine Love. Feel it in all cells of your body and feel Krishna's Love around you.


Oh if we just could all have a glimpse of that sweetnest and purity.... the world would change and it will change if we begin to be more loving towards ourselves, towrdas our friends, family, animals, neighbours, "strangers"..... Enjoy ...... and be in bliss and Love.

By the way a nice quote that i found today: A "stranger" is a friend that i haven't met yet. Think about it and have a wonderful day.
