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.

Kailash Puja for Narasimha Dev

Jai Gurudev! Today we present you a nice excerpt from one of Sri Swami Vishwananda`s Speeches- 2007, Narasimha Retreat.

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Jai Gurudev! I see, everybody has his own kunt!

It's beautiful.

We'll start the prayer by doing the Kalash-Puja, where we invoke the deity we are praying to with all His associates together, and offer Him a place to sit and avert Him: you wash His feet, His mouth...

It's the same thing they do in India, when a guest comes to somebody's house; normally, when you go to a brahman-house, the brahman has to do it.

At the moment a guest comes, you have to offer water to the guest- nowadays in India, they still do this for the guru.

When a Master comes to somebody's house, you welcome Him.You wash the feet of the Master, you offer water and then, you start to be normal, you start talking.

For the deities, it is similar, we invoke the deity, we call upon the energy like we yesterday did with Narshingadev.

We invoke Narshingadev, we ask Him:”God Narayana, send the energy of Narshingadev here!”.
I explained about Narshingadev yesterday, that He is the destroyer of pride and ego, the destroyer of anger.

And a nice video - Prayer to Narasimha
