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.

Learn to listen to your heart.....

Navaratri and Dussera with Sri Swami Vishwananda

Learn to listen to your heart, because whatever people say, there is a certain degree of untruth in it, but whatever you hear from inside of you, there is certainly a degree of truth in it. That’s why it is said that following one’s intuition is very important on the spiritual path. Developing the capacity of intuitiveness inside your Self is very important and will lead you to your objective in life. In order to develop that quality, you need somebody who has already mastered this. You always need a teacher, you always need a Satguru. If you take the name of any Deity, take the name of Rama, take Krishna, they all have a Guru, they all have a teacher to guide them. They are the embodiment of the Divine fully. They could have said “OK, I don’t need one”, but yet, they showed that in life one needs the blessing of a Guru and the way to receive it is through satsang, through gathering. In general, why do people go to a master and receive what the master is giving? It is because, you see, the master carries the Amrit, the nectar. Even though you don’t perceive it with the mind, you do receive it. Through satsang, through gathering, you are receiving something and what you are receiving is contributing to your advancement. What you are receiving, even without knowing, is the Amrit. It’s this nectar that bees fly from far away to come and collect from the lotus flower or certain flowers. Not all the flowers have the same capacity of honey inside of them, not all the flowers have the same capacity of sweetness inside and who knows that? Only the bees know that; not the frog. The frogs are the stupidity that is always thinking they know everything. They will jump up and down on the flower, but they will not know what sweetness is inside. To know that, one has to dig deep inside oneself, dig deeper and deeper where one gets this Amrit. Through the help of the teacher, the Guru, you receive this Amrit so that - at the end of life - you can say “Yes, I have achieved the purpose of life”.
