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 & overcoming the duality of the mind

Sri Swami Vishwananda says "Whatever comes in the contact of the senses, in the contact of the mind – heat, sound, touch, colour, taste and smell: these are the product of the senses. Whoever gives attention to the outside, to the sense organs, to the sense objects, is bound by duality. And one will not be aware of this greatness, of the eternity of the soul. Because when the mind is always focused on the limitation one is trapped into that duality. And from that arises the cold, the heat, pleasure and pain.

Lord Krishna said in the Gita "Overcome pleasure and pain. Go out of this drama and remind yourself that you are eternal." You are here to witness, you are the Great Witness. And only when you realise that you are the Great Observer, then you can observe life and be apart from it. Not part of it!"

true words
easy + clear
(but)somtetimes hard to realize in this world.
sometimes the intention is right but the action wrong.
sometimes intention + time are "wrong" and the outcome hard to handle.
sometimes all ok and life is pure bliss and pleasure and beeing thankful to the given gift of life is self understood.

hey buddies, hang on to these moments. they are quick and eternal and make life worth living it.
