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 gave a satsang in Mauritius

At the question-answer session in  Sri Ranganath Temple in Rose-Hill Swami Vishwananda said: "People complains often to me about their problems. The good things that people do to you, you forget it very quickly and the bad things that people do to you you remember all your life.
Often one said to God: please give me this, give me that. Do you think God doesn't know what you need? If God gives us problems it is to make us think about it, it is to brings us forward. More you are closer to God more you have problems. Those who don't have problems they are immersed in the illusion, in Maya. At the end of the Mahabarata, Kunti asked Krishna: Please give me always problems so that I always remember you and call you.
God allays talk to us inside but we don't hear Him because we are too busy outside. That's why try to calm your mind.
When you do a Puja focus on what you are doing. Focus on your Divinity. If the mind wanders, bring your mind back to the divinity you are worshiping."
