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.

Surdas was one with Krishna

Sri Swami Vishwananda: One day Surdas went to a temple and there, every day, although he was blind, he would describe how the Deity was dressed.
In the Hindu tradition it is like that: every day, when they bathe their statue, they dress their statue nicely with new clothes.
Now, everybody and even the priest were thinking “Oh, my goodness, probably he is just pretending to be blind.”
So one day they didn’t dress the statue at all.
They left the statue naked and then he sang “Oh my Lord in your nakedness, You are even more beautiful than with clothes.”
And such was his Love for Krishna that Surdas was one with Him.

This is a fragment of the wonderful book Just Love

There is a beautiful song called Shyama Thori Murali by Surdas

Tomorrow we will tell you more about the wonderful Saint Surdas
