Swamini Initiation and Satsang in Mauritius

Initiation of new Swamini Vishwamohini in Mauritius
by Swami Vishwananda


by Swami Vishwananda

I have given the easiest sadhana of all with Atma Kriya. There is no other sadhana because by practicing Atma Kriya, you are burning much Karma from many lives and so you will reach a very high level. For the rest it is only through my grace. 

Look, I play more human than anybody. This is my role, I have to do it; otherwise, I can't be here.

Enjoy being here, surrender the maximum you can and the rest will be given to you. What is surrender? Surrender is to forget yourself, to hand over yourself and everything. The ego is the arrogance. The ego is attached to you and you cannot control it. You can try to control the ego to your maximum, but it sticks on you.

The mind is the personality of the ego. You can control the mind. It is not easy but it is not impossible. When you surrender you have to make the first step towards the Divine. You are aware that God is in everything. It is only Him. “Nama gete uta uti.” There is nothing which is not God. Nothing else. Who is Tuka (Bhakti Saint who sang this song)? There is no Tuka. There is no Vishwananda, there is only Him, nothing else. It is Him who acts in everything. But just to know it like that does not mean everything. Tomorrow you forget about it through your actions in the world.

Once you have surrendered, there is not a single moment where the Divine is not present. That is why you can see in the life of saints that God is always present every single moment. This is surrender – only Him, nothing else. How do you do that? You do this by continuously thinking of Him, even if you have to challenge your own self. If you have to challenge your mind, challenge it. That is why Krishna said: “In millions only a few come to me. People are so preoccupied by pain, fame, name forgetting that this is just for some time only. This will only make you jump from one place to the other.
