Satsang of Swami Vishwananda in Bari / Italy

The small temple was packed full of Italian devotees attending the Satsang of Sri Swami Vishwananda:

"Satsang means to gather together. In the old times the sages were discussing the holy scriptures in satsangs. What the science discovers nowadays was already know by the sages 5000 years ago. Like the city door in Delhi which is made of iron and the pillar of iron. The pillar—over seven metres high and weighing more than six tones — was erected by Kumara Gupta of Gupta dynasty that ruled northern India in AD 320-540. There's no trace of rust on this pillar.The 1,600 years old iron pillar in Delhi has never corroded despite the capital's harsh weather. The deep Knowledge of the Vedas was hidden in form of stories. A satsang was the gathering of people interested in knowledge. Spirituality is linked to unity and respect of the others.
When we sing the glory of God one forgets about his own ego. Then love awakes. In the heart there is always a flow of love. The mind stops it when it thinks about one´s self. When you are in love you think upon your lover, what is he/she doing. Let's sing the name of God. There is no difference between God and His name. God has different qualities but there is no difference between God and His name. The name of Rama is stronger as his name."
