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.

We were always longing for the Divine

Just like the Hindu Saint Mirabai from Rajasthan, who was yearning all Her life for Krishnaji, Sri Swami Vishwananda is explaining us today that all of us had the same longing century for century. The same is for Christian Saints (see picture with St.Faustina and Her vision of Jesus) or Saints from any other Religion.

Devotee: I feel, that this time is a very energetic time. So everything changes and a lot of people die and all the new things coming up and... yeah, I think it's a very energetic time and it's very important to come back to our roots and to rely on God.
So, is it right, that this time is very important for the future?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Well... it's not only this time.
This time is more clear, more open to the outside, but- always people were longing for the Divine!
It's not now; now, we can see it because of technology- you have computer, you have all these things, who enable people to look for new things and to grow on their spiritual path.
But always, century for century, people were searching!
Human is born to go back to the source.
But as long as you don't have reached the source, you will still search, no?
So all the times were good!
Even now, it is very good.
So, you should profit from it!
And like I said: technology makes everything easy.
If you wouldn't have a car, you would not have reached here, you would reach here maybe tomorrow, whatever.
So, because of that...
Also it's much easier to realize onself.
It can be easy, if one wants it.
That was the whole thing yesterday, and even today I am talking about it!
But the longing has to be there!
As long, as you don't yearn for God, you can forget about it.

And here the music, that surely describes the desire of all of us to finally reach God-realisation, to merge with the Supreme Lord, who is the Creator of everything:
Sainya main Girdhar ke - Bina Mehta - Mirabai
