What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

Swami Vishwananda tells a story about Jesus

Jesus was sitting in the Heaven and thinking, “Maybe the world has changed. Let Me go on Earth and see. Two thousand years ago, I was there, but because I said, ´I am the Son of God´, they put Me on the cross and crucified me. But there were no churches at that time. So, let Me go and see, maybe they will recognize Me, and welcome Me. They will know, that I am here for there own good.”
So, Jesus came in Bethlehem, where He was born. There He saw a church, and He was walking towards the church, when, at the same time, the Mass was finished. People started to come out from the church, and they saw a man coming, who were dressed like Jesus. So they all started to make fun of Him, “Oh, look at this mad man who is dressed like Jesus. What do you think he is?” Jesus was shocked, and said, “Oh my Goodness, I thought that after thousands of years, that they have been praying and calling to Me, they would recognize Me. But here I am, and they don´t even recognize Me.”
Jesus went to them and said, “Don’t you recognize Me?” The people said, “Oh, you are just a mad man, who is dressed like Jesus.” Jesus answered, “Oh, no, no, no; I am Jesus, you were just praying to Me in the church!” But they said, “Nooo, he is mad.” Jesus thought,” My Goodness, how come they don’t even know Me now?” The people finaly told Him, “You better go away, before the clergymen come.” But at the same time, the clergy was coming, and Jesus went to him and said, “Hey, I am Jesus!” The clergyman said, “You mad man, keep quiet!” Then he took Jesus by force, brought Him inside and locked him in the sacristy.
So poor Jesus was locked in the sacristy, and He could not understand what was happening. He thought that after two thousands years, with many churches around and people who are praying, Christianity is well flourished and they will know. But no, poor Him, He was locked inside. So He sat there and waited. At night, He saw a light coming. The clergyman was coming with a lantern and opened the door. And when he opened the door, he fell at the feet of Christ and said to Him, “Please, Master, forgive me.” Jesus asked “why?”And he said, “You know, I did recognize You, when I saw You for the first time in the morning, but You see, the people are not ready to accept You. I locked You in here, because You will start talking the truth and it would be inconvenient for You to speak the truth. People will never believe You, because they believe in the clergymen now.” said Swami Vishwananda

Satsang of Swami Vishwananda in Moscow in October 2010

At the question: "Why is it so difficult to love?" Swami Vishwananda answered: " Because of the judgment one puts on the persons. So, try not to criticise anybody; try to love not for the etiquett: because he/she is like this or like that but FOR THE SAKE OF LOVING. More you will try and more you will really love unconditionally.

Swami Vishwananda tells you today:

In India, there is a place called Puri, and there is a temple for Lord Krishna in the form of Jagarnath. He is an aspect of Krishna; a funny one. Every year, there is a big festival where they bring the deities out and carry them in the streets. Millions of people gather there, and all the people, even the king, will go and help cleaning the streets where they will bring the chariot of the Lord.
It happened that one day a very rich merchant came to Jagarnath, and seeing the Lord together with his brother Balaram and sister Subhadra, he said to himself, “This is just a mere wooden statue with big eyes, big smile. It´s just a black statue.” Then he said very proudly, “I will show how wealthy I am, and I will give one hundred thousand rupees.” So he went to the priest ans said, “Priest, I will donate one hundred thousand rupees to the temple to feed the Lord! But I have one condition: you have to use all this money for the food.”
The priest thought,”How will I use one hundred thousand rupees only for the food? Even if I would use the best ghee and all the best ingredients to make the prasad for the Lord, still the money would not be finished.” So all the priests gathered together and started discussing, “How could we finish one hundred thousand rupees for the prasad of the Lord?” Finally the highest priest came to a conclusion, he said, “OK, it seems that we can’t take any decision, but let Lord Jagarnath Himself, Let Krishna Himself take the decision.” They went to the merchant and said, “Listen, we haven´t come to a conclusion, but we will let the Lord Himself decide which kind of prasad He would like to have. Meanwhile, please stay with us until the Lord Himself will tell us what kind of prasad He wants....
to be continued tomorrow... :)

Swami Vishwananda tells you today:

God has given you an intuition to follow. So you have to learn to listen to the intuition in a calm way. You'll be able to hear your intuition only when you're calm. And you will be able to accept what your intuition is telling you. Often I've seen people listening to the mind, and said, Swamiji, I have been listening to my intuition, but actually it's not like that. This is the difference between the intuition and the mind, it is two different kind of voices you will hear. The mind voice is always flattering you, will always say you are the best, whatever you are doing is good, you should do other more things like this. Whereas the intuition, the intuitive voice inside of you is sharp and direct, and it's not flattering.

Swami Vishwananda tells you today:

There was once a king who did lots of sin in his life. He knew that he would die soon. So he went to see a guru in one ashram. But when he went there, the guru was in deep meditation. So he waited, and waited, and waited, but the guru didn´t come out of his samadhi. The king saw that the son of the guru was there, so he called him, ”Please, your father is in deep samadhi, and I can´t wake him up, I can´t tell him to come out, so you tell me... Look, I have spent my whole life in hurting people and doing bad things, but now I realize that I have to change certain things in my life. Tell me how would I forgive myself for all this?” The son thought for a while, and said, “Chant three times the name of Rama, and all your sins will be forgiven but of course you have to chant it with faith, you can’t just chant it with the mere mouth.” The king was very happy. When the guru came back to himself, the son was very excited and said, “Father, father, you know, the king came here!” And he explained everything about why the king had been there. Then the father asked him, “What did you tell him?” The son said, “I told him to chant three times the name of Rama, with faith, and that all his sins would be forgiven.” The father got very angry at that moment, and said: “My son, I curse you, because you don´t even know how powerful the name of Rama is. You didn´t need to tell him to chant it three times; even one time would have been enough!”
