Radiating Light of God

Swami Vishwananda: Looking at the world with Divine eyes, you will see that the world is simply the radiated light of God shining through everything. Keep trying until you have come to that realization and never lose hope. The moment you lose hope, you lose everything. The moment you say, “I can’t do this,” you will not be able to do it. Challenge your fear! Keep reminding yourself that you are part of God. You are in His Divine hands and He will never let go of you. Never! He always will be nearer to you than the breath or the air you are breathing in.

You try to imagine how close God is with the mind. It’s difficult, isn’t it? The mind will never let you imagine God. When you start thinking with the mind of the heart, then you may realize Divinity completely. How does one think with the heart? Meditation is an important element in thinking with the heart as you sit with yourself in silence. Jesus said, “When you pray, go to the darkest corner of your house, close yourself in and talk with your Father.” Christ meant for you to go into the inner chamber of your heart and speak with God. Talk with your true Self, and you will receive an answer. So, what exactly is in this inner chamber of the heart? Therein is just love, nothing else!

Light in Sky at Sunset, Eve of
Hiranyagarbha Lingam Manifestitation
November 2009 by Swami Vishwananda

If you want to be in the light,
You will see the light.
But if you refuse to see the light,
Do not complain that you are not seeing the light.


The Divine is ever present.
If you want to see the Divine,
You will see Him.
You have to be sincere
In your wanting.

-Swami Vishwananda

Swami Vishwananda Master Teacher

Master, Take Me By The Hand. . .
Once a Master was asked by his disciple,
“How is it to find God?” The teacher took the disciple by the hand and dragged him into the water of the Ganges River. When the disciple was in the river, the teacher took the head of the disciple and forced it under the water.

What is happening?

After some time the teacher pulled the head of the disciple out of the river and asked him: “How was it?” The disciple said: “I was trying to breathe for I was suffocating. I was trying to grasp some air; I was battling for air.” The teacher smiled and said: “You want to find God? It is this way. You have to try your best. When this longing for the Divine or for realization, God-realization, whatever name you put on it, is like really suffocating yourself, when you can’t even breathe, then you can say, ”Yes, I’m on the way towards Divinity.” As long as this longing is not like that, you are still here in this world. And that’s how it is to find God.

Chaitanya (picture) - Swami Vishwananda
There was a saint, Chaitanya Das Maharaj, who lived in the 17th century. He always vibrated Gauranga, Gauranga, who is another aspect of Krishna who appeared in 1500. Even while he was sleeping, people would hear 'Gauranga, Gauranga, Gauranga, Gauranga' vibrating from him. Each breath Chaitanya took changed to Gauranga. Chaitanya elevated himself into such a Divine spiritual advancement, that even when he took Samadhi, his whole body was vibrating Gauranga, Gauranga.

By chanting you are making proper use of your tongue. By reciting the name of God, you also are utilizing the hearing, which will become finer until you realize the Divine vibration within yourself. Chanting and attuning to the Divine vibration will lead you to Self-realization or God-realization. Thereby, you attain the love of God completely.

The Essence of the Gita

We feel the informtion in the Comment below may be relevent to some of you who read this Vishwananda Teachings blog and perhaps do not read the Virtual-Babaji-Vishwananda blog.

The following comment is offered anonymously referencing Virtual-Babaji-Vishwananda blog entry (Link) : http://virtual-babaji-vishwananda.blogspot.com/2010/02/letter-from-babaji-krishna-incarnated.html

Comment: "Babaji Incarnated as Krishna.” In reading this entry, I was reminded that Swami Vishwananda has recommend that his disciples read the book, "The Essence of the Gita," by Paramahansa Yogananda. This book was transmitted to Yogananda directly by Mahavatar Babaji. Link: http://www.essenceofthegita.com/

Yogananda states clearly that Babaji has incarnated many times as the Vishnu Avatara. These incarnations include Lord Krishna and Narasimha, the Lion-Man. Babaji transmitted to Yogananda that He/Vishnu would come again in Kali Yuga as Kalki Avatar. The book is a fantastic, story-like resource of many spiritual insights, and it reads as well as "The Autobiography of a Yogi."

God Will Help You

Swami Vishwananda
Spiritual practice, your Sadhana, is not only to be practiced in the morning, but during the entire day. At night before you go to bed, just sit down and reflect on the day. Ask yourself, “What did I do today that was good, and what did I do that was not so good?” You know that what you have done good brings joy to you, and what you have done that is not so good leaves a trace of disturbance inside, because in your mind you try to rectify it. When God sees that you are trying to set it right, through His grace and love, He will help you.

Yagna - Manifest What You Want

Swami Vishwananda
Light of Cleansing Yagna

Let the Light flow through you;
become the Self and realize it;
and know that you are the Self,
and that the Self is acting for you.
And when the Self is acting for you,
for sure everything will be perfect.
There is no doubt of this, when
you have the power of trust
in the mind.
When you have this power of trust,
this willpower,
then you can create in the mind
what you really want!

Fulfill Your Purpose

Swami Vishwananda

You will fulfil the purpose of your incarnation
only if you surrender body, mind,
and soul completely to God.
Let go of your identity.
Let go of this ‘I,' this egoism that
causes you to focus only on the outside.
When you let go of your identity, then
the Divine will reveal itself to you.
Then you will see the Unlimited,
and you will feel the blissful happiness.
