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.

The power of sound

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu doing Sankirtan
Before giving Darshan during his stay in Jyväsklya, Finland, Sri Swami Vishwananda adressed his devotees with the following words: We will do namasmarana. I guess this will be much easier for you, just repeating the Divine Name.
We will just chant: Ram Ram Ram Sita Ram.
When you sing, let it come from deep within you, not just outside.
This is the power of sound.
And to make it more powerful, it has to emerge from deep within.
That’s why when you say OM, you don’t just say OM from the throat, otherwise there is no vibration into it.

Sri Swami Vishwananda recently published a nice book containing many of his talks, which can be purchased here: Just Love

Here a nice Bhajan by Krishna Das: Sita Ram
