Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: Learning to listen to one´s intuition is very important....

"Learning to listen to one´s intuition is very important. It´s very easy too, because whenever you hear your intuition, there is no doubt in it. And the voice of intuition is strong and direct. Very often the mind will rebel against it, but if you take the decision and listen to this intuitive voice inside of you, you will be away from the mind and the mind will surrender itself. Because, the more you listen to the mind, the more your mind will drag you! But the less you listen to your mind, the further you will be away from it! And the easier it will be to realise your Self."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: centre yourself in your heart...

"We like to understand things with our mind, but our mind has a limit. Does the mind understand the heart? It will never understand it. The mind will understand things only when there is a limit to them. If there is a wall where you can bang yourself against, the mind will understand. And then, of course, you will complain about it, because it hurts. Whereas, when you centre yourself in your heart and awaken this Divine Consciousness, Higher Consciousness inside, you will always flow."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: change yourself first....

"When there are always the Divine names on your lips, there will be no time for you to think of negative things. Unless you like to think of negative things, because you see, the more you think of negative things, what happens? The more you become negative, the more you become depressed, the more you become aggressive and all this makes you, makes the world itself, not good. So, spiritual people are here to change the world, no? So, change yourself first, so that the world can change."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: Expect only Him...

"When we let go of things, we will feel free of them, free of everything. One has to do one´s duty, but yet, don’t expect great things: expect only Him. The only real expectation that one has to have is the Love of God.

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: You should never be afraid of saying that you love God...

"How lucky it is that God chose you to be on a spiritual path. But it doesn’t end only here, because when you are on the spiritual path, very often I’ve seen people very shy, very shy to say that they are on this path. They are shy to say that they love God. Well, if you are shy to say that you are on a spiritual path and you love God, where is the self-confidence in it? Where is the faith in it? Where is the faith in yourself? You should never be afraid of saying that you love God, because this is the only thing; He is the only One that you can love, really."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: The power of Love is the only thing that conquers everything...

"The power of Love is the only thing that conquers everything. If you want to conquer God, conquer Him with Love. If you want to achieve Him, you will achieve Him only with Love. But the Love has to be pure and pure."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: surrender your mind to the Lotus Feet of God...

"By feeding our mind, we always stay in the mind consciousness, in the mind level. And don’t think that you will ever be able to understand and Realise your True Self with your mind. It is only when you surrender your mind to the Lotus Feet of God that you will really release yourself from this bondage, from all this suffering. Then you can say “God, here I am. I surrender to You without anything. Help me; pull me out of this illusion.”

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda:Your mind has to be always busy with the Lord...

"Your mind has to be always busy with the Lord, you know, with God. This is how you will find peace. In this world, nowadays, you see that not many people have this peace, because their mind is not on the right way. People may have everything in this world, but yet if they don’t find peace, if they don’t find happiness inside of them, nothing else on the outside can make you really happy, because whatever happiness brings, whatever is on the outside, and the happiness which comes from the outside lasts only for a short time. After that, again the same drama. So try to find this inner happiness, this inner freedom. And it’s not far away, you know, it's here inside of you."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda:Give the mind Divine Names...

"Give the mind Divine Names. The more you chant the Divine Names, the more you become the Divine Names and the more the mind ceases to trouble you. Once the mind ceases to trouble you, it will be much easier in your meditation. So, when you help others, you see this happiness, you feel this happiness and with the Divine Names you will realise that you are serving the Divine. This helps you on your spiritual path."

Hiranyagarbha lingam pictures (Kenya 2011)




Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: A Satguru knows everything...

"A Satguru or Paramguru has this omnipresent quality inside, whatever the disciple is thinking, the Guru is connected to. When one surrenders sincerely to the master, it is like one is grafted to the master. It’s like with a rose bush: whenever the bush receives the grace, receives the water, of course, the grafted part also gets the water. The same thing is when one is surrendered to the Guru: whatever flows through the Guru, whatever energy, whatever Shakti is flowing through the Guru, the disciple, wherever he will be, will receive the same Grace, also."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: Just chant one name...

"Hold tight to the Divine names, any Divine name that you feel close to – you don’t need to have ten Divine names, you just need one Divine name. If you have a guru mantra, just chant your guru mantra; if you have one Divine name, one form of the Divine that you feel close with, just concentrate on one. It will be more intensified than concentrating on ten Divine names. In the mind of man, they think that when they have ten, they will advance faster. They will not advance faster. Actually they will advance less fast, because one Divine name is like digging one hole and getting the water; ten Divine names is like digging ten holes to try to get water. You will not get it. So, if you want, just chant one name."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: God is always with you...

"Know that God is always with you, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whether you’re positive or negative, He is with you. When you go in the quietness of your heart, through meditation, through yoga, you experience this quietness."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: God is seated inside of the heart...

"If somebody just meditates and just prays in the outside only, without realising that the Lord that they are praying to is seated inside of the heart of each being, then it’s of no use. Realising first, through meditation and through your prayer, that the Lord is not on the outside, but is inside of you, you will see Him shining in everybody; because, until you realise the non-difference, you will always see the limitation."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: You have to rise in love...

"You have to rise in love! And how to rise in love is to find your Self, to Realise your Self, to realise the greatest gift that God has given you. Of course, some people will say “Yes, it’s easy to talk about it, but it’s difficult to practise it.” But Love is there! There is no point of saying that it’s difficult or it’s easy: it is there already. It just needs time for you to look at it. And when you take time through your spiritual practice, you will realise the beauty of Love, the beauty of life and you will know why you are here. And once you have opened this fountain, this tap of Love, Love can just flow, nothing else."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: He will run to you and give you liberation...

"When you love somebody, you are not scared of anything. In the same way, when you love God, you should not be scared of anything. When you love somebody, you will do anything to please that person. In the same way, when you love God, try your best always to please Him. When He sees that you are trying your best to please Him, He will run to you and He will give you liberation, He will give you Self-Realisation. Work always towards Self-Realisation, towards God-Realisation, and make this the aim of your life. He will provide you with everything. Whatever you need, He will give you."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: surrender to the feet of God...

"The only way you can really un-trap yourself is to surrender to the feet of God, you know, and really say “Lord, take me.” Know that God is compassionate. He will hold you and He will carry you and He will always send help for you. That’s how His Love is. So, concentrate not on the negative, but on the Divine, and call Him within you. Don’t be shy to chant the name of God. And, also, don’t be shy, because it is not about the others, it is about you and God."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: whenever a problem arises...

"You see, in this world, people like to hang onto their problems and onto their worries. You see, whenever a problem arises, the solution is also there, but mankind is so easily focusing on the problem rather than on the solution. Do you like problems? No. So then, why do you let yourself be drawn towards your worry? Because it doesn’t give you peace, eh? So, the more you hang ontothe problems, the more problems you will have; the more you hang onto the worry, the more you will not see the solution. But if you take a little bit of time, sit in your prayer room, and sincerely surrender to the Divine, the problem will get solved."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: The same way God loves...

"When you realise that the only path is to love and to be in love continuously, you realise how much God loves His creation. The same way that God loves, the same way you can also love. All other kinds of love are secondary, because mankind is here to become Love. But to become this Love, you will first have to overcome many obstacles, because mankind thinks that Love, God, is something apart from them."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: everything will go back to Him...

"We want Self-Realisation, we want God-Realisation, yet we don’t want to let go of everything. That doesn’t mean that you should renounce everything and become sannyas, no, but be in the world and know that everything comes from Him. Everything is Him. It’s only Him who gives and everything will go back to Him."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: True love...

"If you truly love, you will sacrifice everything. Until you have come to the point of really feeling this kind of Love inside of you – and you have to be ready – all the other kinds of love will have expectations. Very often what we call Love, it is just passion or desire. Today we love that person, tomorrow we love another person, but in one year you don’t even remember who these people were. Real Love is to be found deep inside of you, personally. It’s not in someone else, it’s inside of you. It’s your true nature. This is who you are in Reality. The Divine is not far away. He is inside of you. You just need to calm your mind and introvert yourself. So see how much you are truthful towards yourself and how much you really, sincerely want the Divine. True love is everlasting giving, not expectation."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: controlling the mind ...

"The mind can be overcome by chanting any Divine name. You see, if you practice it regularly, it will be more simple for you to focus the mind. When you are singing bhajans, your mind is not troubling you because when you chant, your mind is busy and it becomes hard for the negativity to take over. So wherever you are, whatever you are doing, keep your mind fixed on God and chant the Divine names. This will help you to open up your heart. Chanting the Divine name is the most efficient way of controlling the mind."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: everything is just an illusion...

"The soul inside of us is jumping and telling us, “Hey, mind, surrender yourself!” but the mind says, “No! I am better off with my own worries, because that is how I can drag you down completely.” The soul says, “But this is just an illusion”, because - deep inside - you know that the Reality is only realised when you surrender to the Divine Feet; when you realise the mystery of your incarnation, when you realise your Dharma, your duty here, and achieve that."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: love yourself...

"To achieve this Divine state you have to really love God. You have to start, firstly, to love yourself. You love everybody. Every day you say to somebody “I love you,” but how many times do you say to yourself “I love you?” It’s easy to love others, but some say that it is difficult to love one’s self. But I will say, “No, it’s not difficult.” See, when you love others, you see the goodness in others, but when the point comes to love yourself, you see all your negativity. Stop looking at the negative. It’s only through being positive that it can stop. It’s only when you start looking at this positivity and start thinking about yourself positively that you will dive deep inside this ocean. Then your heart will open up."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: The Dharma of your soul...

"Chant the Divine Names! The thousands of names of the Lord all have equal power to release you from this karmic bond that you have created through many lives. And it´s only through His grace that today you have been given a human body, so that you can achieve Him. This is the Dharma of life. The Dharma of your soul is to attain who you really are! Until you have reached that point of drinking the Cup of Love, don´t renounce. No matter how beautiful and how tempting the outside could be, drink the Cup of Love!"

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: to truly know the Divine...

"When you have certain knowledge one day you will have to let go even of it, because you don’t Realise God either with ignorance or with knowledge. Knowledge will bring you only to a certain point of Realising the Divine, but to Realise God, to truly know the Divine, you have to cross over everything, go beyond all limitations."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: If our mind could fathom the Divine...

"If our mind could fathom the Divine, we would not be here, we would be with Him. That’s why He has given us so many aspects of Himself, so that our mind can be focused until we realise our Self. I will not say just until we realise God in our Self, but until we realise that we are part of Him."

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: Be sincere towards yourself ...

"Be sincere towards yourself and do your sadhana. We can talk about sincerity. You can be sincere towards God, you can go in front of Him and pray everyday, but here you have to be sincere, because it has to come from within yourself. Even the littlest thing, if you ask from within you will get it; even the greatest thing, if you ask from within you will get it."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: surrender completely to your Master...

"When you find your spiritual Teacher, when you surrender completely to your Master, your Master becomes everything for you. Your Master becomes the mother, He will shower the Love of a mother on you. He becomes the father, He will be disciplined with you. He becomes everything. Then the world dies. He becomes the world. The Master becomes the path."

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: Your life’s purpose is...

"Your life’s purpose is only to attain His Love and the moment you get Him, you get everything. Your prayers and mediation and all your sadhana are to attain this Love, to Realise it or to awaken it. If you have a precious stone and leave it inside the safe, it will not shine, but when you have it outside, it will shine more and more."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: how human beings have to love...

"We can talk about Love, but as long as you don’t experience it or you don’t feel it, it’s difficult to understand. And, if you really want to feel it, it’s easy to feel it. You have to quiet this mind and awaken your heart and, when your heart is awakened, Love will flow. And, in Love there is no difference, you know. It crosses all the barriers of difference. That’s how God loves and how human beings have to love, but very often it’s very difficult. We try our best to love like that, but it’s quite difficult, because there are so many things on the outside that disturb the mind, so many things that stop one loving. But, one has not to lose hope, one has to keep trying and trying."

Wisdom of Swami Vishwananda: transcend your knowledge to wisdom...

"If you remove certain qualities from humans, people who are not on the spiritual path, like pride if you remove the sense of living in the material world, if you remove wealth from them, you remove enjoyment from them – they are finished! They become zero! Whereas, from a spiritual person it is impossible to remove qualities, because spirituality is endless, knowledge is endless. You have knowledge, but knowledge should not just stay as knowledge. It should transcend to wisdom!"
