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.

Don't be trapped by Maya Devi

Maya Devi
Sri Swami Vishwananda: Maya Devi is very powerful, because She traps everything, everybody gets trapped in it.
Even saints get trapped in it, but the saints know their goal.
The yogis, the sadhus, the persons who are enlightened, they know their goal, they know what they want. They know what is real, what they desire inside of themselves.
This is what is real: to show what you really want, what your heart wants; to listen deep inside of you, to
be free from the misery of this world.
I don’t mean that you have to die.
You can become a jivan mukti.
You can live in this world but, at the same time, not be a part of this world.
Then you can have happiness.
You will discover it, you will enjoy it, you will know about it.
For that, there are many ways.
There’s prayer, which helps to calm the mind.
There’s bhajan singing, which will give you bliss; you can lose yourself in it, you develop bhakti inside you.
But still, this is not fulfilment.
It’s through meditation that you can really come to the power of complete fulfilment.
