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.

Becoming one with God

Krishna's Devotee Mirabai
Sri Swami Vishwananda: When the prayer, when this bhajan singing makes you lose its aspect of witness to the outside, when you lose yourself and forget about everything, forget even about you being the body, you see that you have become One – with eternity, with God.
You have attained your own realisation.
This is how great saints, great prophets have taught mankind about it.
One of the most beautiful aspects of bhakti is Mirabai.
She was so much into it, she forgot about herself.

She forgot about her body, she forgot about her mind.
That state only is eternal bliss.
This is the Soul itself.
