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.

Krishna revealed Himself inside of Surdas

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Surdas was a great poet, actually.
He was blind and he would sing the Name of Krishna and he would sing the Name of God, dancing around everywhere.
Actually his story is like that: he was small and, because he was blind, nobody wanted to play with him.
One day he heard some people singing the name of Krishna, so he started following them and started singing.
And then he would sing, but of course, the group of people didn’t want him.
So they cast him aside and then he would sing by himself.
So Krishna, God, revealed Himself not in the outside, but inside of him, in his heart.
Then he would see Krishna inside of him, constantly.
