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 & being in the present Moment

Swami Vishwananda says: "When the mind is surrendered to the lotus feet of the Lord, when it is surrendered to God, the Divine starts to shine and give the qualities to the person. When you do japam; when reciting the divine names, you start to shine the qualities of the Divine inside your heart, out. The same thing, if the mind is concentrating on the problem, the person becomes very problematic, no? Even if you tell the person “Don’t do that!” the person will always do it. And it’s always at the beginning – if at that moment you sit down, you calm yourself and you analyse the situation, you will find the solution because in every situation that arises, the solution is also there. But for that you have to learn to introvert yourself. Sit down quietly. Look at the situation face-to-face. Look at what your mind is saying and look at what your heart is saying. Then take the decision. Then you will always be in the moment."
