"True Love is everlasting giving, without expectation. We do our sadhana, we do our spiritual practices, only to attain this Love, so that it may become unconditional. In the state of Unconditional Love, we realize the unity with the Divine. Then we can say that we are really in Love."

"There are many ways of controlling the mind. Some are very easy and some are very difficult. So, which one would you like? The difficult way or the easy way? ... The mind flow is always running ahead. Even when I tell you to sit for meditation, where has your mind already jumped? It’s already thinking 'Oh, how will it be?' Sometimes you are sitting here and you are already in America so fast is the mind. That’s why we say 'It’s jumping like a monkey from tree to tree.' So to hold this monkey, to tie it up is very important. Otherwise, you will never be free. You will be like this monkey."

"It's the good things that you do, your sadhana, the seva that you do, the people thy you help, that is what builds up the treasure in heaven. That you attain only when the outside doesn't bother you."

The only purpose of your life is to achieve His love. And when you get it, you get it all. Your prayers and meditation and all your sadhana is necessary to achieve His love, understanding and enlightenment. "

"The moment you stop judging; the moment you stop looking for fault in others, you will start truly loving everybody. And for that, you have to start looking within yourself, looking for what you have to change in your life."

Q: Why did God create Maya?

SV: He created Maya so He can enjoy His creation through everyone. You see He is the absolute, without Maya how could He experience Maya's limitation? So this is why.

"The more you love to do your sadhana, the more your mind will be controlled. And when your mind is controlled, when you have peace of mind, you will be peaceful and you will bring this peace to your surroundings. You will be an instrument of Divine Love."

"Somebody asked me once 'Swamiji, do you think it is possible to get rid of this identity completely?' This is a big question, but the answer is 'Yes'. If you have surrendered everything, the last part He will erase, He will remove it from you. This is not under your control. This is not under the control of your mind, but it’s in His control – the Higher Consciousness’ control. On your spiritual path, do you want to waste time or do you want to have Self-Realisation quickly? Start working on your spiritual path then! The quicker you work on your spiritual path, the faster you will get it. The quicker you please the Lord, the quicker you will see Him next to you, but for that, you have to renounce your mind."

"Krishna is Love Incarnate. Now, ask Him to be born inside of you. Ask Him to manifest Himself inside of you. He never refuses anything from anybody. If you sincerely ask for that, if you sincerely ask Him for Himself, you will see that He will give you Himself. That's what Meerabai asked for and she received it. When all the saints have asked, they have received, because they were sincere towards themselves. They were sincerely asking the Lord, 'Give me Yourself.' And it doesn't matter how long it takes, because you know that He can hear you. And in His own time He will come and manifest Himself."

You will never find Him unless you find Him, firstly, inside of you. Once you have found Him inside of you, then you will find Him everywhere.

Until one has really searched for the truth, really searched for who they are, they will not know the world, because the world has so many secrets which are hidden from the mind of man. With your eyes you can only see the three dimensions. That's why you have so much judgment. If you can see beyond what your eyes can show you, there will be no judgment."

By feeding our mind, we always stay in the mind consciousness, in the mind level. And don’t think that you will ever be able to understand and Realise your True Self with your mind. It is only when you surrender your mind to the Lotus Feet of God that you will really release yourself from this bondage, from all this suffering. Then you can say 'God, here I am. I surrender to You without anything. Help me; pull me out of this illusion

Вопрос: Практиковал и обучал ли Иисус Христос Крийя Йогу?
Ответ Свами Вишвананды: Видите ли, Иисус Христос обучал своих учеников разным вещам, о которых не знают люди. Однако Он никогда не использовал такие слова, как: «крийя йога» или «асана». Но что такое Крийя? Пожалуйста, скажите Мне. А что такое йога? Не слышу. Крийя – это действия с осознанием Божественного, когда человек совершает всё с осознанием Божественного, когда он осознаёт присутствие Божественного в каждом своём действии. Именно об этом говорил Иисус. Чему Иисус учил своих учеников? Не было ли всё, о чем Он проповедовал, как о Господе? Когда ты осознал, что всё, что ты делаешь, ты делаешь для Господа, то каждое твое действие – это и есть крийя. Так что Иисус обучал своих учеников этой осознанности, осознанности Господа, Божественного Сознания. Также Он обучал их дыхательным упражнениям. Поэтому мы можем заключить, что да, Он обучал их крийи.
Вопрос: Может ли Крийя растворять нереализованные желания?
Ответ Свами Вишвананды: Да, Крийя это делает.
Вопрос: Можно ли практиковать Атма Крийю вместе с людьми, которые практикуют другие виды Крийи?
Ответ Свами Вишвананды: Нет. Поэтому Я и говорю, что Атма-крийю надо практиковать только с теми людьми, которые получили Атма Крийю, а не с другими криябанами, потому что крийи отличаются.
Вопрос: Достаточно ли выполнить только саму технику Атма Крийи, или мы должны еще медитировать?
Ответ Свами Вишвананды: Если вы считаете, что Атма Крийи достаточно – то достаточно. Если вы считаете, что её недостаточно, то медитируйте.

Actually, if you train yourself to think positively and be aware at each moment whether this is a judgment, this is a criticism, and and analyse it - not outside of you, but in yourself, you'll be able to train your mind. It's very easy just to speak it out, isn't it? As the tongue doesn't have any bones, it's difficult to control. With training, with practice and with determination, if you really want to, you can change things

"When you love somebody, you are not scared of anything. In the same way, when you love God, you should not be scared of anything. When you love somebody, you will do anything to please that person. In the same way, when you love God, try your best always to please Him. When He sees that you are trying your best to please Him, He will run to you and He will give you liberation, He will give you Self-Realisation. Work always towards Self-Realisation, towards God-Realisation, and make this the aim of your life. He will provide you with everything. Whatever you need, He will give you."

"When your mind is quiet you can hear the heart talking to you. So keep practicing. I always say it,and I will keep saying it. Maybe every time you come for Darshan you will hear the same thing. As long as you do not practice listening to the heart properly, I will keep saying it; I will bore you with it. When you attain the greatness of love that you have in your heart, you will know it is even much more beautiful than this nature that you see on the outside."

"Your life’s purpose is only to attain His Love and the moment you get Him, you get everything. Your prayers and mediation and all your sadhana are to attain this Love, to Realise it or to awaken it. If you have a precious stone and leave it inside the safe, it will not shine, but when you have it outside, it will shine more and more."

"Whatever we do, often we expect, either indirectly or directly. Whether you are conscious of it or you are not conscious of it, there is expectation, always. Having any expectation will never let you be free; only until you let go completely of it. If you are on the spiritual path, when you let go, you surrender to God, you will feel this peace of mind, you will feel that you are free."

How lucky it is that God chose you to be on a spiritual path. But it doesn’t end only here, because when you are on the spiritual path, very often I’ve seen people very shy, very shy to say that they are on this path. They are shy to say that they love God. Well, if you are shy to say that you are on a spiritual path and you love God, where is the self-confidence in it? Where is the faith in it? Where is the faith in yourself? You should never be afraid of saying that you love God, because this is the only thing; He is the only One that you can love, really.

All the misery that you see outside, the responsible is one's own mind. If the mind, the thoughts you have, will be pure, there will not be such misery. In this world, humans think that they are only humans, and they enjoy this humanhood. Very often they forget that behind this humanhood there is also divinity. To reach this, they should not have fear, as it is your true nature, what you really are."

If I like something, I don't expect you to like it also. Let's say I love mangos. I know that a lot of Europeans don't like mangos at all and I can't force you to love them, just because it is pleasant for me. It is the same way with sadhana. Not everybody has to have the same sadhana.

If you follow your path, you have your own sadhana. Enjoy it and love it! That's what will bring you closer and closer to your real Self. That is what will awaken this deep longing for the Divine, because once you have tasted this sweetness of the Divine, you will want more and more.

My mission is to spread love. Divine love. This is the main base of my mission- to open up the hearts of people. You see: the word 'Love' itself has so many meanings nowadays, that people have forgotten the true aspect of Love. The unconditional Love. And that is what will change the world. All the other forms of Love have expectations. But when one feels this real Love inside one’s heart, it’s beyond all expectations. And only with this Love peace can be restored."

"When the thoughts are pure you will also reflect this purity. Wherever you are, this Love will always flow and people will see you reflect divinity. Not the egoistic way, but with the Love, there will be no misery if you reflect the light of God."
