The Great Master Lesson

“Make one step towards God, and he will make a hundred towards you.”
Sri Swami Vishwananda 

The Great Master Lesson
of Sri Swami Vishwananda

(Written into a poem with parts of the poem
 taken from a talk Swami gave at a Satsang – 
poetically speaking – when He ”put his hand in yours . . .
 once upon a time, with starlight shinning in His eyes)

Love is in the Heart, but
Humility is in the mind.
“Losing your mind” is sometimes
A very good thing to do, dear friend.
To make the mind humble, 
This ferocious, big beast which
Is apart from man,
While Love lives in his Heart,
We must remember we are
Masters of the mind and not vice versa!
So remind the mind continuously
That you are its Master
And this builds up humility,
A great stride forward 
On the spiritual path,
A quality that God loves, indeed!

Mahavatar Babaji roams the sacred
Himalayan Mountains
And truthfully all over this planet
And all dimensions beyond time and space.
A new epitaph, or legend, He has 
Created, not for Himself,
But for the understanding of
Of all mankind in this age of
The Internet of World design.
On His and Swami’s blog:
His books and other work,
He signs Himself as: Mahavatar Babaji,
Champion of the Whole Humanity. 

Sri Swami Vishwananda, humble though
He is indeed, contains in His soul
This same degree of Love-Light,
A Master of whom people say:
“Oh, He is very high, He comes
To serve you all the time,
Whether you are aware of it or not!”
This Master and all Masters come
Not for themselves, but for you;
They come to lift you up.

Mountains come and mountains go
As under the waters of Earth they
Hauntingly, relentlessly appear 
Then disappear as Earth change
After Earth change happens in time.
Like that, you come and go to
This Planet called Earth.

When winter winds blow
And snow fills the air, we say,
“We are chilled to the bone.”
Like that you must feel with all
The cells of your body, mind and soul
This Great Love like the saints of old.
Develop selfless Love, Unconditional Love
And Hu-mil-i-ty , so says the Master 
Sri Swami Vishwananda

Do not flagellate yourself every time 
You have a thought, but do the vice versa:
Flagellate the mind with the Divine Names.
Always remind yourself that God does everything
And it is He who is the cause of it all,
Even unto the “cause of you!”
He is always listening and from time to time
He will give you a sign in the outside
That He is listening always and forever.
Swami says:
"But don’t let pride rise inside you."
And so it is, dear friends!

Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama
