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.

The human body and it's five elements

The following is an excerpt of Sri Swami Vishwananda's Pre-Darshan Speech from the 5th February 2010.

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Let’s analyze how the human body is.
The Shastras [scriptures] say that the human body is made of the five elements, the Pancha Tattva.
And if you look at these five elements they are constantly in war with each other.
They can’t be in peace with each other.
Can water be at peace with fire?
No, it can’t be!
That’s why in the human body there is so much imbalance.
Even if you see somebody is perfect on the outside, there is no such thing as perfection like that. There is always something going on in the body.
Imagine if all the five elements would start fighting with each other, what would happen?
Terrible, catastrophic.
And this is within yourself, not outside!
That is what is happening in people nowadays.
