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 & Longing between the Guru and Disciple

Sri Swami Vishwananda says "There is a story of one disciple, who was once reading in the Guru Gita “If one is surrendered and offers service to the Guru’s Feet, there is no need to go for pilgrimages, there is no need to chant big, big mantras, there is no need to do any harsh practices. There is no need to fast - in fact there is no need for anything extra! Just service to the Master, service to the Guru will give everything.” 
This played in his mind, “Why should I walk up and down, North to South India on pilgrimages if I can just surrender to the Feet and serve the Master?” So deep inside – of course, it was the Guru Himself calling him, who had placed this feeling inside of him – it doesn't just appear like that.


Why at that specific time and specific moment was this reacting inside of him? Why was this making a certain effect inside of him? It is not just plainly like that. When one has this deep longing for the Master it’s because the Master is also longing for the disciple. It’s both ways."
