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.

God has given you His sweet name

Sri Swami Vishwananda: He [God] have given you His sweet name.
He has given you His form to meditate on.
First know that the mind has to be focused on Him completely.
Then, you will know what is Self-realisation.
Then, you will know what is surrender.

On the picture you see Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. (1486 - 1534). He was an Indian Saint, who is believed to be the full incarnation of Sri Krishna. Also He was always absorbed in the chanting of God's name and dancing around, as it is seen on the picture, where He is dancing in the forest.
Let's chant's together the Glorification of Sri Gaura Hari. (= Golden Lion)


Here a part of the translation:

He is absorbed in devotion to Sri Hari. He maintains the chanting of the names of Hari. While chanting He counts the holy names on the fingers of His hands. He is addicted to the name of Hari. He always has tears of love welling in His eyes.—I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci.
