Love is Supreme - Mahavatar and Swami

Love is the answer to all questions. Love is all there is in the Universe and within the human being. When you feel fear, remember a time when you Loved someone. Remember a time when you knew, without a doubt, that you were in connection or unity with the Divine. Everyone has these moments in life, even those who are known as the lowest of the low, which is an illusion. God loves everyone equally the same. You will remember that there is no fear when you are in the presence of the Divine.

Once, a long time ago, a tiger followed me around in the jungles of India, where I was at the time. This tiger was at the point of development where it was possible that he would be born a human being in his next life. I helped him develop the yogic and God-oriented energy so that he Realized Love for all life. The tiger learned to live on the God-given life prana that is freely available to everyone who learns how to access it. He no longer needed to hunt and kill for his physical sustenance. The life-giving prana is God given and lives in the very air that is available freely to everyone, and the sunshine that shines on all equally.  

This ability is cultivated when one learns to Love truly. True Love holds no judgment, no fear, no anger, no remorse, no sin, and no desires, except the one of Loving God for the sake of Loving only. This state of spiritual development, I wish for all of you. I am coming to you all at this time in many ways, such as this Internet of the Earth development to help you Realize True Love which contains a freedom born from the Heart within.

Learn to Love Truly, for that is your reason for being born on this planet!

Sri Swami Vishwananda

Very often we see Masters high up and people say, “Oh, they are very high,” We are here to serve. It’s not you who are serving the Master, but the Master who is serving you all the time. Whether you know it or you don’t know it, it’s the Master that is serving you. The Masters don’t come here for themselves. They come to lift you all up. So taking the example of the life of saints, taking the example of the life of great ones, we learn a lot; we learn how to develop selfless Love, unconditional Love and humility. 

People will say “Swamiji, you talk about humility, but how do we cultivate it?” It’s so simple, I tell you, really. It’s the simplest thing that you can do. Love is there, in the heart, but humility is in the mind. How will we make this mind, which is so ferocious - this big beast - how will we make this mind humble? We always say that it’s our mind, but we don’t say we are the mind, do we? Or do we say we are the mind? No! The truth is that the mind is something apart from man. Man is the master of the mind. Man is the master of all the negative qualities that emerge from the mind, but illusion is so great that it seems that they are the master. We need to remind the mind continuously who is the master to build up humility. 

It’s not that I am telling you to flagellate yourself every time you have a thought, no, but flagellate the mind with the Divine Names. Always remind the mind that it’s God that does everything. He’s the cause of everything. Every thought is Him. Remind the mind continuously. Whenever the mind becomes negative, say “Mind, it’s not you, it’s only the Lord himself”. It’s only God. If God didn’t allow you to think, where would you get the power to think?

In the Gita, Krishna said, “If the Lord didn’t allow the leaves to move, the leaves would not move”. Even if there was a great wind blowing, the leaves would not move. Such is the power. So if He who governs everything is inside each one of you, he’s seated in each one’s heart equally! So how can we forget about Him? So train the mind to remember that it is not this pride; it is not this big ‘I’ - which is the ego - the ‘me’, ‘myself’, you know. Transcend this pride and say “God, it’s You”, and continuously talk to Him. Whether you have an answer, whether you hear from Him or not, it doesn’t matter. Deep inside know that He’s listening. From time to time He will give you a hint. From time to time, He will give you a sign in the outside that he’s listening. Rejoice in this sign; look at this sign and say “Yes, He’s with me.” But, don’t let pride rise inside of you.
