Mahavatar Babaji Commemoration Day

Around the world each year on November 30, people celebrate the Commemoration Day of the Immortal Mahavatar Babaji. This is the celebration of the day Mahavatar promised to stay in this world, as Spiritual Guide to anyone who wishes to contact Him through meditation and prayer, until all souls have reached “remembered” enlightenment (all souls are enlightened but have forgotten through Maya or illusion of this world). Mahavatar also contacts some few people in person, in dreams and visions.

At Premavatar Swami Vishwananda’s ashram, Shree Peetha Nilaya, in Germany, prayers to Babaji will be offered at 7 p.m. (See video below of Swami Vishwananda offering prayers to  Babaji previously).

Spiritual Quotes from Premavatar Swami Vishwananda

I'm Just Looking For Thee

Premavatar Swami Vishwananda in Serampore, India
We all are here because of our spiritual path, because of our spiritual way, this way to the heart, this way to realization, God-Realization.  Most of you probably know that the main aim, on the outside, is to know thyself, to realize the completeness of who you are in Reality.  In this search, you make many travels to India, travels to America, travels everywhere, but all this searching on the outside has a limit. We are on the search and the search brings us to fun places. We meet different people, but still we are incomplete. We say, “God I have left heaven to realize it here. Whatever I’m doing, I’m doing it for Thee. Wherever I go, I’m just looking for Thee."

Accepting the Way You Are

Hold the Hand of God and Flow

Hold the hand of God within you every moment during any time of trouble, any happiness – always think of the Divine, that God is with you in every moment – all the time! It’s up to you to hold the hand and let yourself be guided. When a leaf falls on a river, do you think the leaf knows where the flow of the river is carrying it? No. Just let go! The wind is blowing the leaf. In the same way, we have to be in the hand of God. We have to be centered in our heart so that wherever our heart is carrying us, we just open up and let ourselves flow.  

-Premavatar Swami Vishwananda

Hold the Hand of God and Flow

Man roams around the world like he is in a cartoon,
which plays a recording of life in caricature form.
 Many people live out their lives like this.
How can it be that birds know their place
in life and people have such difficulty
in settling down to the dharma they
were born to play out in Earth reality,
which the Divine freely bestows to everyone?

It is simple, really: The sense of drama that
the mind creates stops people from finding
peace and happiness, which is their inherent
nature given from the Divine at birth.

Whales in the ocean used to play out their lives
in the nature that was given their species.
Now man has polluted their water home and
created other problems for them, as they
are hunted and killed for man’s purposes.
Actually, the creator has given the whales
a place in the scheme of Earth evolution,
for themselves, but now man has
interfered with the Lord’s Divine plan.

Please hear with the “ears of the Heart”
As Premavatar Swami Vishwananda teaches.
Anchor your soul, your dharma, in
the Heart of the Divine and learn to play out your
life in the design for man and each individual dharma;
it is the best for your peace of mind and happiness.
Let the natural Divine Love, which you are in essence,
lead you to this great understanding of a life lived
for which you were created, like the Avatar Ram in His day.
Then peace and happiness will be yours, Amen and OM.

Love's Pearls of Wisdom - Mahavatar Babaji

The winds of time blow in many directions simultaneously. Rats run in different directions in a maze the scientist prepares for them as a test. The rats become fearful and confused. Such is the state of mankind today. You foul [dirty] the very air you breathe, the Earth which assists the Creator in sustaining your life’s breath, and the very cells of your body. It is time for each of you to make a test for yourself like the scientist does for the rats in his maze. Make the changes you need in your life actions and behaviors so that you clean your living spaces both within the body and outside in the world in the air and Earth itself which sustains your physical life. It is time!

Everything Will Be Perfect

Let the light flow through you, become the Self and realize it, and know that you are the Self, and that the Self is acting for you. And when the Self is acting for you, for sure everything will be perfect. There is no doubt of this with the power of trust you have in the mind. When you have this power of trust, this willpower, then you can create in the mind what you really want!
-Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwananda

On The Way to Perfection

When you look at the world you see that there is a lack of trust. First one has to trust one’s self. For sure, we are imperfect but we are all on the way to perfection. When we try to accept our self, we see our negative qualities but we should stop focusing on our negativity and focus on love and positivity. Instead of concentrating on fear and worry, we should hold on to the positive.

Loving Like Meerabai

Premavatar Swami Vishwananda: The Love that the devotee has for the Satguru is the Love that the devotee has for the Divine. This Love is one single-minded Love. This Love is a Love where the devotee doesn’t expect anything, apart from the Lord Himself. And, in this Love, nothing can move the bhakta, no matter what comes! When Meerabai was singing for Krishna, people would say “She’s crazy,” but this didn’t change her faith, this didn’t change her Love. She was so concentrated. Her mind was so focused and one-pointed toward the Lord that nothing could move her. It is said that devotion has another name: one single-pointed mind. When your mind is completely focused on God, you will have Him.

Loving Like Meerabai
Premavatar Swami Vishwananda
May there be a contemporary 
poet somewhat like Meerabai?
She – the one who sang and composed
unique, mystical poetry
out of her Love for Her Divine Lord Krishna, 

Meerabai sang:
“Drink the nectar of the Divine Name!
Leave the bad company,
always sit among righteous company.

Hearken to the mention of God.
Concupiscence (powerful feelings of physical desire)
anger, pride, greed, attachment --
wash these out of your consciousness.
Meera's Lord is the Mountain-Holder
the suave lover.
Soak yourself in the dye of His color.”

A contemporary Meerabai might say
of our Lord and Master,
Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwananda:
Our own Sri Swami Vishwananda
Appeared in our day and our time
           With . . .
            Well . . .
There is just something about that
Beautiful, Beloved-ed Face
That words alone cannot describe
Or even attempt to explain!
Perhaps the closest we can convey
Is that our Master is an embodiment
Of the Divine Mother’s Heart,
That which is known as Eternal Divine Love!”

Meerabai expressed love for her
Krishna in times of yore.
In present time, it feels like Krishna
is here in the form of
Premavatar Swami Vishwananda.

The red rose of true love lies like a beautiful
thunderstorm of powerful, luminous,
magnificent Divine Love in all the hearts which
resonate with Swami Vishwananda's Divine Mission to
 “Open the hearts of humanity to Divine Love.”

Our Lord and Master breathes, lives,
walks, talks and Loves among us.
Hearken to His Teachings for your soul’s sake.
The time is Now!

Longing for the Beloved

Gurudev Offering Prasad to Divine Mother
Navaratri 2012
The Saints know about it. Their hearts pain to be with the Divine. They cry for it. Read the life of St. Francis. Do you know how much he was crying always? But it does not have to be intensive always like that. Right now we are talking about the pain of Love, but St. Francis also had great joy. This sensitivity can manifest itself also as being painful. It's not really painful, but it’s a longing for the Beloved One. -Prem Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda

The Beloved’s Face

There’s just something about that face!
It moves the smallest child, a babe just born,
The newly married young couple
On the brink of the Urban Yogi life,
And an old person wrinkled and tired
Living in time’s doorway.

A ransom was paid so that face could appear
In our world today.
The Avatar descends from the Heavenly Realms
Unto this beautiful blue and white planet,
As observed from space. . .to put a face
On the formless God for mankind.
Then man can relate to this personal God.

One known as Vishnu appeared as a Fish,
A Dwarf, and a Part-lion—Part man,
Krishna, the appealing one,
Appeared as a beautiful blue form
To attract the eyes of humankind first,
And then His teachings followed His own plan!

Jesus appeared as an innocent babe
Lying in a simple manger, with cattle lowing nearby.
Christ became a teacher of compassionate Love,
He died on the cross of Calvary, and then he
Resurrected into Light to teach mankind
That his own spirit lives forever and ever, Amen.

Our own Sri Swami Vishwananda

Appeared in our day and our time
With . . .
Well . . .
There is just something about that
Beautiful, Beloved-ed Face
That words alone cannot describe
Or even attempt to explain!
Perhaps the closest we can convey
Is that our Master is an embodiment
Of the Divine Mother’s Heart,
That which is known as Eternal Divine Love!

So let it be as you look into His
Eyes of Eternity in Darshan. . .
Open your Heart to Love
 And then you will know also
That which cannot
Ever be spoken in words of man.
So It Is Ordained by the One. . .
Amen and Om.

Gurudev Video - Krishna Bhajans 11.2012 - Ol Sole Mio

Ol Sole Mio Lyrics in English - Video of Song Below

nglish Translation

The following video, song and song lyrics are here for just this meaning: The Guru is the mirror of the devotee. So, the light, the sun, in Gurudev’s face, in that sense, is our own sun in His face reflected back to us. We all are one.

What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

When night comes 
and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes 
and the sun has gone down.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

Love's Pearls of Wisdom - Mahavatar Babaji

Tigers in the wild are feared by man and the tiger smells the fear and its natural instinct is to attack, which is triggered by the smell of fear. Yet, a Master can call a wild tiger and have it eat out of his hand. How can this be? It is simple; when the Master knows he is one with the tiger and there is not a trace of fear in the Master, the animal does not smell fear and will not attack but is tamed instead. Actually the tiger feels a rapport, a kind of Love for the Master. Fear is harmful to the human form. Let fear go, give it to God and become Love instead, which is greatly beneficial for the human.

Unity of Love on Earth

We have to become part of Him. We have to realise this unity. Firstly, the unity starts with our mind uniting with our heart, then with our body. When the body, mind and soul are united together, you will experience the Divine without any limitation.

Prem Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda

Unity with the Divine is the calling within every heart of humanity.
Reasoning has to be set aside and one must learn the language
of the heart to reach the remembered enlightenment of former
 states of consciousness, which you all have stored in your atmic soul.
It is written, so let it be!

-Mahavatar Babaji


Unity  Of  Love  On  Earth

(A Prayer for Earth}

Mahavatar Babaji,
Dearly Beloved ParamGuru
Let all mankind be an Instrument of your Love,
Your Peace, Your Humility, even as
You are the Supreme Being of Godhead !
Let us work ceaselessly for the
Human evolution into the Divine Within,
Which is Your mission on Earth.

You, along with Divine Mother,
Have given and blessed our Satguru,
 Sri Swami Vishwananda also with
The Mission which is Yours, as
His Mission to humanity--
Open all hearts to Divine Love.
In this way You have blessed humanity,
 supremely !

Let time be eliminated from the minds of man,

And let it be known as the illusion it is.
Let fear recede into the dust bin of history
For the Whole Humanity, 
As You, Dear Mahavatar, often say.

As the Peacock feather is one of the symbols
Of Lord Krishna’s time on Earth

And as the cross is a symbol of the Christ
Let Your Atma Kriya Yoga image stand
As one representation of Your time on Earth
In the Twenty First Century.
Let peace once again reign on Earth and
Let Krishna-Christ Consciousness
Rise from the Divine Heart Within,

To permeate the very air we breathe,
And let Love reign Supreme
On Earth Forevermore.

Gurudev In India

Prem Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda in India
to join his devotees
November 2012
We have a human body for a reason but we will not find this reason until we turn this body into pure Love and Devotion [to God]. This is where your sadhana [seva|service] comes in. When you develop this pure Love and Devotion, then you will really know the meaning of this human body; then you will enjoy being in this body; then you will know the purpose of being here. -Prem Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda

Love's Pearls of Wisdom - Mahavatar Babaji

Peace of mind comes with time and patience. Rolling downhill comes with the runaway mind which will not comply with the signs of these times which tell you many things that have been prophesied before are happening now. Rent for the body and the attainment of a human form must be paid in one way or the other. Man must fulfill his destiny which is to attain the Unlimited Godhead and to merge with this Consciousness and Love which we call The Divine. Call the Divine name and Let it Be!”
