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.

You can't enter two boats at the same time

Here an excerpt from Sri Swami Vishwananda's Speech on the 5th February 2010:

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Very often people go on a spiritual path in a very superficial way, saying, “Let me try it. Let me see what it is about.”
But these people will not reach anywhere.
If you have one foot in and one foot out, one day you will drop in the middle.
It’s like it is said, you can’t enter two boats at the same time because when the boats start to move, what will happen?
You will fall in the middle, you will fall in the ocean.
Same way if the boat is sinking, you have to run quickly and find the boatman so that he can help you to cross this ocean of life.

Relax 10 minutes and just meditate:
