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.

Swami Vishwananda talked upon the essence of the mind

During the darshan in Cudrefin, Switzerland, Swami Vishwananda said:" The essence of the mind are thoughts. The mind is always wandering. By nature and by habits it wanders. We can compare the mind with clay. With clay you can fashion whatever you want: a pot or the statue of a deity. With the mind it is the same you can focus on the image you want. But the mind is always moving, it is difficult to control. As it wanders you have to bring it back again and again. Keep on trying. When the mind is absorbed in the Divine, the mind start to take the quality, the form of the Divinity you are calling. The quality is infused in the mind. The person becomes calm and reflects the quality of the Divine. You have control over your thoughts and your body. To put yourself in silence: speak less and speak best. You will control your tongue by chanting the Divine names and by thinking what you will say before you speak. Be aware that the Divine is in you and that you are part of the Divinity. The Lord is present everywhere and within his creation.Remind yourself of your true nature: you are part of the Paramatma."
