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 & the Secret of the Soul

Sri Swami Vishwananda says "When God called you onto the spiritual way - it doesn’t matter in which religion - He called you through His grace, for different levels of spirituality, because the mind wants to understand certain things.
Firstly, the mind wants to understand where it comes from. The soul holds the secret, but humans are bound by the intellect, the mind and the senses, which makes it difficult.

Why does somebody search for things? One wants to be happy, but they are not happy, because the soul longs for something else. The soul longs for something greater. This thing which is greater is very difficult for the mind to understand,  because the mind, the intellect and the senses have grabbed man and have made him focus only on the outside. As long as one is focusing on the outside, one is limited to the outside. That is not the goal of why you are here. The goal of why you are here is to fully realise yourself."
