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 talks about humility

Swami Vishwananda says:" The Divine is always present in front of you, but man is always blind to see It, because there’s such a big veil in front. It’s like this window here. There is no curtain, no? If the sun shines through, you will see it, but if I put a big curtain over it, would you see it? No, you would not see it, you would just see a reflection.
This is all just reflection, so that one day you may see the reality and He will come to you accordingly. He will not come the same way for everybody, but it will come, and from your side you also have to make it possible. You have not to say “OK, Swamiji has said it will come. I will sit and wait.” No, be humble, because the only thing that will really make things happen is the humility of your heart, not in the mind saying “I am humble.” If in the mind you are judging yourself, He will know you are not humble. No, here you have to be humble. In the humility of your heart He will reveal Himself to you. It’s easy to be humble in the heart. You just have to forget about the mind. Whatever arises in the mind put it aside. You will see how consuming His Love is. "
