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 Time of Prayer

Sri Swami Vishwananda says "Time for prayer or meditation is very important. Because, you see, why you have set a certain time is not only for you to be present at that time! If you are thinking you are going to meditate now at seven o‘clock, when you say the time you set for prayer or your
meditation, there is also the Deity coming. For example, we go to the temple to pray at 6:30 - there, of course the Lord has also manifested Himself at that time. He also waits for you the same way you probably wait for Him! Because you see, He longs for you! I don‘t know whether you long for Him. This is a relationship, where you put time! He is there, sitting and waiting for you! Then you come at 7:30 - so an hour He was tired, waiting for you. So, that's why time is very important."

The awareness all of a sudden of The Lord waiting for us to keep the special time we have set aside to be with him, truly goes directly into the center of the heart. It is a date with The Beloved. Thank you for giving us this today.
