Centering Yourself In The Heart

 Sri Swami Vishwananda at
Tree of Krishna Vrindavan, India
When you center yourself in your heart and awaken this Divine Consciousness, the Higher Consciousness inside, you will always flow. No matter what, you will enter into Divine Ecstasy and you will feel different energies flowing through you. The mind cannot understand and then it will cry, “I want to understand it, but I can’t!” When the power of the mind decreases, the power of the heart increases. It is so simple, the Lord has sent you here to Realize this, to develop bhakti and to attain Self-Realization,.

Understand the whole creation of God, because actually it’s your own creation, the way you want the world to be is the way it is. Some people want war, they have it. Some people want God, they also have it. Some people want illness, they also have it. Some people want the cure of the illness, they also have it. The way you make this mind think, you create it. If you want love, you will have it. If you want God, you will have it. It’s just that you have to want it! Want it without any doubt. Want it with a heart that really is calling for God, “God, I want You!” God is always with you.

Avatar Ram and Hanuman


On a mountain top one is free to be!
The rarified air rings in the silence,
Infused with lyrical sound waves when the birds sing,
And the grass and colorful wild flowers rustle,
Ever so softly, when stirred in the gentle wind.
Bring your troubles to the mountain top
And allow the wind to whisk them away
Into the mysterious, rarified wild blue yonder.

When Ram was in Badrinath, India in “Ramayama”
Times of old, he stood on its highest mount
Sending waves of Dharmic Love around
This wondrous, beautiful entire Planet Earth.
Ram had with him, even then, the Son of the Wind God,
 Hanuman, who, through time, became an inspiration
To every devotee, of every Guru, since the time of
That great and Maha Avatar Ram.

History records that Hanuman became for mankind
In his generations to come--the perfect devotee—like this:
 Once in the High Court of Ram, Hanuman tore open his chest
Revealing his devoted heart, where every heartbeat echoed the
Divine Chanted Name: Ram . . . Ram . . .  Ram.

Does your heart beat to the dullest, out-of-tune rhythm . . .
 That of ego, pride, greed, lust and fame?
Or does your heart beat to the Maha beat of the
Satguru Avatar beat of Love Divine?
Do you hear your heart whispering ever so lovingly:
Vishwananda, Vishwananda, Swami Vishwananda;
Rama, Rama, Ram;
Krishnaya, Krishna, Krishnaya;
OM Namaha Shivaya;
Narayana, Narayana, Narayana, OM?

Each devotee makes his own way to the Divine
Guided by the Masters of one’s choice . . .
This you know . . . those whom the Divine chooses to send.
Hanuman initiated us into his divinity through his devotion to Ram.
In our day, we can choose to be initiated into the Love in each heart
As it beats to the sound of the Prema Avatar of Love, Itself. . .
Chanting . . . day and night and always . . .
Vishwananda . . . Vishwananda . . . Swami Vishwananda . . .
OM . . . OM . . . OM . . . Amen . . . and OM.
