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 have to be truthful towards yourself

Human beings are said to be Satchitananda. This is a Sanskrit word. Sat means: Existence; Chit is the Consciousness and Ananda is Bliss. Everybody wants to be blissful, no? Everybody wants to be happy, but if you really, really want to be happy you have to be sincere towards yourself. You have to be really truthful towards yourself, first. Then, if you ask God: “Lord, give me happiness”, do you think He will refuse you? He will not. He will give it to you, freely. But it`s up to you to maintain the happiness. It`s up to you to keep this happiness and let it grow.
