Swami Vishwananda seva's group made Seva for Christmas in Kenya

The seva volunteers arranged to do a seva on the 25th December 2010 at Caroline Wambui Mungai Foundation. This is a foundation that was formed in the memory of Caroline. The foundation was established in December 2004 to rescue orphans and vulnerable children from poverty to destiny with love. We wanted to celebrate Christmas day with the children. Christmas day is the day when Jesus was born. Celebrating Christmas is not just to attend to churches, Midnight masses or Bhajan singing but it’s much deeper than that. This is the day when Jesus brought something new to the world, which is forgiveness, Compassion and Love.
When we arrived, all the children were eagerly waiting for us. We had done our previous seva at the same place on 28th November 2010. The children were so excited to see us again and eagerly greeted each one of us with so much joy and Happiness. We celebrated this day with the children with Cake, gifts, decorations and singing songs.

The children continuously sang songs and danced. There was so much love flowing from their heart. It was an amazing feeling to be around these children who are blessed with pure hearts.
We wish to continue serving the children and with your assistance we will be able to create a better environment for these children who have nowhere to turn to but us!

Swami Vishwananda wish you an happy new year 2011

‘If you want to change, change now, open your hearts to love’ .
“God is in your heart now. The only thing that you have to do is to make the first step in His direction. You have to want Him with all your soul and all your heart”.
On behalf of the swami Vishwananda seva society, we wish to thank all the seva members and donators who have selflessly served these children with so much joy, and happiness. Without you all, this seva would not have been complete. Your presence in each of the sevas has been appreciated. May God bless you all.

Swami Vishwananda Seva's group did seva on 28th November 2010

The seva volunteers arranged to do a seva on the 28th November 2010 at Caroline Wambui Mungai Foundation. This is a foundation that was formed in the memory of Caroline. The foundation was established in December 2004 to rescue orphans and vulnerable children from poverty to destiny with love.
We donated food, exercise books, sweets, biscuits, fruits to the children. We reached the location at around 12 noon but were waiting for the children as all of them had gone to the church for prayers. Upon arrivals, the children rushed out from the bus, eagerly to greet each one of us with so much joy and happiness. It was a wonderful experience just to have them come and greet.

When we finished serving all the children with food, we started to distribute the ‘goodies’ when Kamla Auntie (Rakesh’s mum) realized that the Bag with all the goodies was having a strong smell of vibhuti. On opening the bag, all the goodies were blessed with Vibhuti.

Swami Vishwananda Seva's group in Kenya

We later moved to a smaller room where all the children sat and sang holy songs, prayed and waited for us to serve them with the food. Each child received the food with such gratitude. It was definitely a blessed weekend for each one of us.

Apparition of Narasimha on a floor carpet

On the carpet of Payoja Temple appeared some days ago a small Narasimha. -What is the meaning of it? she asked Swami Vishwananda. - "It is for protection" he answered.

In the very last minute...

... to be ready for Xmas we sent in the files for the new book
to our nice and courteous "Druckmeister Kurz" printer in Stuttgart. There were some serious night shifts necessary but we are now all happy to bring this wonderful first piece of work on its way! We really hope you will like it.
JUST LOVE is the first major book written with words directly from Swamiji and is part of a series of works that will appear in the future. On 324 pages you will find 52 talks given by Swami over the past five years. They are grouped by the following themes: LOVE, DIVINE NAMES, HUMILITY, DEVOTION, SURRENDER & GURU.

Shiva said to Parvati “One can attain all knowledge of this world, but if one is ignorant about the Teacher all the knowledge is meaningless”.
"...The Guru gives Himself fully to his disciple. He gives Himself fully to the devotee. What the devotee has to do is to be like an empty receptacle and receive everything...."

Swami Vishwananda encourages us to love...

So easy to spread love!

Swami Vishwannada encourages us again and again to love and to spread love. And he always says that it is so easy. But what do we do? We think about, how we can spread love, instead of just radiating love.
A few days ago I had a nice experience with one of my sisters here at Shree Peetha Nilaya regarding spreading love. It started with me getting annoyed with her and I expressed my anger. When I saw her the next time in the temple for prayers I could suddenly feel love for her. I was surprised about this lovely love-feeling, because in my mind I was still clinging to my anger, also my anger with myself. But this is what we humans love to do, we attach ourselves to the negative. It came quickly to my mind that she must be sending love to me. To send love to somebody with whom you have a conflict works miracles each time. Try it! Later I could ask her, whether my impression was right that she was sending love to me and she confirmed. You can send love in many ways, for example to send light, in all colours, silver, gold, you can imagine how the other is being showered with love-light. It is so simple. And the good thing is that you also benefit. That´s how love multiplies by giving. It is so simple, we just have to want it. We just have to give ourselves this little kick to get over ourselves and to send love instead of stupid thoughts.

Satsang last week of Swami Vishwananda

One of the questions made to Swami Vishwananda during the question and answer of Last week; A Satsang given at Shree Peetha Nilaya where Swamiji discusses the differences between the heart and the mind and how one can distinguish them and seperate them. Enjoy.

It's sooo cold!

Yesterday, shortly before Swamijis departure to Brazil I had the chance to take this foto-
We all are a bit sad to see him leaving - but happily he comes back already in 12 days! (- which we count!)

1 Dec 2010


Swami gave an unscheduled satsang this morning. He spoke about the meaning of Babaji's Commemeration Day. He told us that we celebrated yesterday as the the remembrance and veneration of the time when Babaji made his resolution to stay in a body on this planet until the end of time.
