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.

Observing the mind

Sri Swami Vishwananda: So try to sit straight for the good flow of energy inside of you.
Leave your eyes open.
You see, when I say to meditate, the first thing people always do is to close their eyes. It’s a trap.
The moment you close your eyes, your mind jumps.
First, before doing this calming of the mind, let’s see in one minute how your mind is. OK?
Close your eyes and observe your mind.
Stop. Tell me without being ashamed or being shy, in this oneminute’s time where were you? Eh?
So, your mind ran outside?
How many were travelling around? Were you far away?
Were you very far, like India? Not so far, eh?
Well you see, so quickly we can travel.
Faster, even faster than lightning is the thought of men.
So, the easiest way, let’s try it now.

Tomorrow we  will provide here a guided meditation from the book Just Love

Have a beautiful day with this nice video A beautiful mind
