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.

Be always simple and loving

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Yesterday, during darshan, I was holding a little baby.
It was so sweet to look at how the child was.
She came to me, she had the candy, and the moment she turned to the mother and looked at the mother, she didn’t even want the candy, you know.
She wanted to go to the mother.
It brings me great joy to see this surrender, you know.
Then I said to the people: Imagine if the whole world would be like that, if they saw the Reality.
If they knew about God and they knew the illusion, you know, they would let go of the illusion and run towards God-Realisation. It was really great.
The child didn’t bother about the sweet, or the chocolate, nothing!
No toys even mattered to the child, because the mother was the most important.
That’s why whenever we do things, it comes to a point where we lose this satisfaction, because whatever we do on the outside, which is just material-centred, has a limit and it is finished after some time.
When we do something with our heart, the simple things that we do will give us joy. So, be always simple and loving.
It was lovely to be here with all of you. It was just on time.
Even if I live in Europe, I still carry on with certain Indian traditions, you
know, the time tradition - the Indian time.
