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 dissolving the ego

Sri Swami Vishwananda says "The story of Narasimha has great meaning. Hiranyakashipu symbolizes the pride, the ego in its fullness. This can be dissolved only when it is completely surrendered to the Lord. When it is given to Him, it can dissolve. Otherwise, we will still think “Yes, I am greater than anybody else!”

The pride, even if it is very small, it is like Jesus said “If you have faith like the grain of a mustard seed…” You can pray, you can ask the Mother to remove the pride, and She will do it. But as long as we don’t willingly say “Lord, here, take it, I surrender it to you”, it will still hang on to us.

He came to protect the devotee not only that time, but always, He will appear to whoever just calls Him."
