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.

How Radharani healed Krishna from His headache

Sri Swami Vishwananda: One day Krishna pretended to have a terrible headache and He was screaming “Ah, I have terrible pain.”
Everybody was shocked, you know, and said “Oh, my Lord, what can we do for you?”
All those who had said they would do anything, said “Lord, we will do anything for you; tell us.”
Even Narad Muni came, who sings always, “Narayan, Narayan” saying “I will do anything, my Lord, to cure your headache”.
Krishna looked at them all and said “OK, fine.
To cure my headache I need the dust off your feet; I need that you press my head with your feet.”
They all got shocked.
He, the Lord of Universe, is asking that His head be pressed by their feet.
None of them considered themselves worthy for that.
They were very scared, you know, that to press God’s head with their feet is
so disrespectful, first, and secondly, for sure they would go to hell for doing it.

So everybody was a bit aghast.
Everybody was discussing, talking with each other how would they do that.
At that moment Radha came and she saw Krishna in such a state, you know.
So, she went to Krishna and said to Him “My Lord, tell me”, and Krishna said
the same thing that He had said to the Gopis.
Then, when she heard what she had to do, without thinking, without considering about
herself, she said “Yes.”
There was Krishna lying in pain.
She started pressing the head of Krishna with her foot and everybody was shocked. At that moment Krishna’s headache was gone.
Everybody was shocked, you know.
They came to Radha and were very angry with Radha and started cursing Radha, saying “Oh, you are so bad, you are mean.
How come you have put your feet on the head of our Lord?
Then for sure you will go to hell.”
Radharani said to them “Well, even the deepest hell will be a blessing for me, for it has cured my Lord’s pain.”
