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.

Satsang of Swami Vishwananda in Bari

Sri Swami Vishwananda tells us how the pride of the Pandavas was crushed by Krishna:

"During the Mahabharata, there was a man who wanted to observe the great war. He went on a hill close to the battlefield of Kurukshetra, and from there he had a good view of all that was happening.
As he was thought to be a spy, a soldier was sent to capture him and cut his head off. Before he died, this man prayed to Krishna "Lord Krishna, I just wanted to see your lila, this was my only wish. That’s why I went on this hill to watch the Mahabharata."
Krishna went there, picked up the head, blessed it and put it on a pillar. Then he went back to the war.
When the war was finished, all the Kauravas were dead; killed by the Pandavas. They were full of pride, having been victorious in front of this huge army and strong enemies.
Krishna brought them to the pillar where the head was watching, still alive. Krishna asked the head:
-          You have watched the whole war..Please tell us, what did you see?
-     Lord it was a great blessing to see your lila.   It was only You on both sides, and above both armies was Your Sudarshana chakra turning.
It is all God who makes all that happens in our life. The Prana Shakti is the bread of life."
