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.

A story about Kali Ma

There was once a devotee of Kali who lived near Dakshineswar. It was not Ramakrishna, it was a priest, and his love for the Divine Mother was sooo great, that he would praise the Mother wherever he was. In his house, there were no food. So he went and beg, but people refused to give him food. Then the Divine Mother disguised Herself as a fruit-seller, and went to his house where She gave some vegetables and some rice to the wife and said, “Cook them. Your husband sent me here.”

When the husband came back to home, the wife told him: “Oh, thank you, to have sent this lovely lady, who brought some vegetables and some rice for us to eat. But now I don’t see her anymore and she went without saying bye.” Later, when they opened the door of the temple, they saw that the cloths that the Lady had been wearing, were now on the statue of Kali!”
