Swami Vishwananda - Some thoughts about the Guru

As you maybe know, Swamiji is in South Africa at the moment, where He gave a Satsang and Darshan.

Here some pictures and a text which Swami VishwaPharanthapaAnanda sent:

"Jai Gurudev! As you all know our beloved Guru Sri Swami Vishwananda is in South Africa at the moment. I have been so inspired in these past few days. I thought that I would share that with all of you:

It is said that the very body of a Sat Guru is the image of every way to freedom and that all things pertaining to life here can be obtained first by knowing what is wished for, and then leaving at the feet of the Master or just surrendering, either way works.
So I thought of this in relation to the physical body of  Guruji and the threefold path of Sanathan Dharma Kama Aatha and Moksha.
  • The feet of the Guru is the Chintamani, the Gem that grants wishes (activated by sincere surrender and obedience)
  • The chest of the Guru is the seat of all known and unknown wealth 
  • The face of the Guru is the solidification of all the levels of enlightenment, realisation and God-realisation.
His entire form is the language of walking with God!

So this is what I wanted to share with all of you - I hope it can be of some use! Jai Gurudev"
