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 Guru Mantra

Some time ago Sri Swami Vishwananda was explaining the meaning of a Guru Mantra.
Sri Swami Vishwananda: The word itself says it- Guru-mantra: a mantra, which has been given by the Guru. And when a guru gives a mantra to a person, there's also the grace of the Master into it.
When one chants the grace of the Master- the Master has already risen in spirituality, one receives also this part.
So, when a Guru gives you a Mantra and you chant this Mantra, you're also participating in the Divinity of the Master.
But you have to practice it!
It's like: you go to a doctor. The doctor will give you a medicine, but it's upon to you to drink it, no?
So, when you drink it- you will get well!
The same thing.
If you don't have a personal Guru Mantra yet, you can always chant 'Om Namo Narayanaya'- the Mantra for Lord Vishnu.
