When I Pray

Sri Swami Vishwananda

Sri Swami Vishwananda teaches Atma Kriya Yoga as given to Him by Mahavatar Babaji when He was five years of age. Gurudev says:"Meditation is an important element in thinking with the heart as you sit with yourself in silence.”

You have to be happy by chanting, by doing your prayer to the Lord, because He’s always with you. Your parents, your mum and dad, will be with you for some time, but He always will be with you. He was with you from the beginning and He always will be with you until the end, until you realize your Self
and until you attain Him. He’s your best friend, He’s the only one that you can really trust, and He’s the only one that gives solutions for everything.

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!
