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.

Ram Navami/ The sweetness of Lord Rama's name

Today is Ram Navami- the Appearance day of Lord Rama. So last year Sri Swami Vishwananda celebrated Ram Navami on March 24th 2010 with his devotees in Springen. This is an excerpt of his speech, in which he is speaking about the sweetness of the name of Lord Rama: All the Divine names are very powerful, but the name of Rama is very special.
It is said that just by the mere chanting of the name of Rama, if one, at the end of life chants this Divine name, one gets liberated from the cycle of birth and death.
That’s why this name is called Taraka Mantra, which is a mantra that can liberate someone.
That’s why you see in Hindu tradition, when somebody dies, they always chant the name of Ram: Sri Ram,
Sri Ram, Sri Ram.

The text above is a fragment of Sri Swami Vishwananda's book Just Love

Today we should just concentrate on Rama and also on our Ishta Dev. We should chant Lord Rama's name or the name of our Ishta Dev. Here is a nice video with Sri Rama's name: Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
Also we should fast today till 1 pm and remain silent.
During his last Darshan Sri Swami Vishwananda explained more about Ram Navami. To listen to this speech, please click here: Sri Swami Vishwananda Podcast
