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 Guru

Sri Swami Vishwananda says, "This verse is the mantra which a bhakta or somebody who is truly surrendered to the Feet of the Guru should chant, first thing in the morning, even before going out from bed, the moment the eyes are open. By singing this mantra, one reminds oneself of Who the Guru is. This is the secret of the Guru. Therefore, the first thing one should remember is the Guru as the Ultimate Supreme Lord, which means that the Transcendental Absolute is no different from the Master. As long as one perceives the difference between the Supreme Reality and the Master one is still on the way of realising, one is not a bhakta yet."

Sri Guru Gita, Verse 88
Śrīmat parabrahma guruṁ smarāmi
śrīmat parabrahma guruṁ vadāmi
Śrīmat parabrahma guruṁ namāmi
śrīmat parabrahma guruṁ bhajāmi

I remember my Guru who is Parabrahman (the Transcendental Absolute);
I praise my Guru who is Parabrahman; I bow to my Guru who is Parabrahman; I serve my Guru who is Parabrahman.
