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.

Happy Hanuman Jayanti!


Today we are celebrating Hanuman Jayanti. Here in our Center it already started at 5 pm in the morning- the actual birth time of Hanuman. There was an Abishek and we chanted the Hanuman Chalisa 9 times in different version.
Read here an excerpt from the Hanuman Jayanti 2009:

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
When Mahavishnu decided to incarnate as Rama and after that, He incarnated alone.
So all the Deities, all the Devas incarnate.
At the same time He was asking Shiva: “You are the Lord of the Universe, you are realised. You are one with God all the time, but tell me one thing: “ On whom are you meditating, like that?
You always sit in meditation, but for sure you are meditating on somebody."

Then He replied: “Yes, all my thinking and all my mind, all my concentration, my meditation is only on God Mahavishnu. So whenever I meditate it’s on Mahavishnu, that I’m meditating and my Love for Him doesn’t have any limit. So now that He is going to be incarnated on earth as Rama, I’m thinking also to be incarnated.”
So Hanuman is a manifestation of Shiva. He is a pure incarnation of Shiva actually.
He is not just part of Shiva, but a full manifestation of Shiva.
Even if Shiva has space in Shiva Loka, in His body, He is a full manifestation of Hanuman.
That’s why it’s said that if you can not pray to any Gods, pray only to Hanuman- you will have everything. And when you chant the Hanuman Chalisa, this part of the Hanuman Chalisa that says “I don’t pray to anybody, but only to you.” -„Aura Devata Chitta na dharayi ,Hanumata se yi sarva sukha karayi”.
It meas: even if you don’t pray to any Deity, but only to Hanuman, you will receive the blessing of all the Deities.
