Swami arriving home from weeks in Mauritius
in January 2012 and met by residents of SPN
at the Frankfurt Airport with "Just Love"
Sri Swami Vishwananda said as he addressed a group of devotees: "You know about Mahavatar Babaji? How many of you know Him? Babaji is a Master in India. Actually He is about 5,000 years old, still alive. Because He is my Satguru, I can tell you something. He looks very strict! Actually, I tell you, He is such an expression of  Love that it’s difficult with words to express it. Even the word 'Love' is limited to express His Love. Mahavatar Babaji said to me once: If He achieved that, everybody can!

Mahavatar Babaji Meditation with Authentic Photograph
Prayer of Gratitude
With "Just Love"

Oh, Lord, our God. . .
The road we travel in this life
Is wrought with strife and toil
and with
Joy and laughter in your duality here.

When we pray and meditate
Your Atma Kriya with sincerity,
Though . . .
Out Heart becomes pure and afire
With Love and Truth of Divine Light.
This Love-Light lives within our Heart
That has become so open to
The truth of life now.
This is Your God-given human right
Since You breathed into us
Your breath of life.

The road to hell lies within the material world

When we ignore Your Truth Within.
For in our Heart
We are Your Love from the beginning.
And Love we ever shall be
From the beginning without end
Throughout Your eternity.
We are grateful, Oh Mother-Father God!

Amen and OM.

GOPI PATH - Swami Satsang 10.2.2012

The Gopi Path –Swami Satsang 10.2.2012 . . . One of several spiritual subjects Sri Swami Vishwananda spoke about in His Satsang last evening: (Note: Readers of VBV may be interested in reading the part of yesterday's letter from Mahavatar Babaji, which spoke of the Gopis in relationship to Atma Kriya Teachers, which we have reprinted below Swami's Satsang excerpt).

Most problems you make happen by yourself. You see, a problem can be very small, but you can stretch it and make it long. That’s what you do always, or you can let go of it completely and leave it in the hand of God. He shall take care. He gave it and he has a solution for it; trust into that.

So, it is the same thing if you trust and really long to have the love the Gopis had, to have the Gopi Path, it’s not impossible. God will give you like that. But are you worthy of it? Are you ready for it? One would say, “Yes, yes, I am ready.” I tell you one thing, to say, yes, yes, that one is ready, and really to be ready are two different things. The Lord, when He will give you, don’t think that everything will be ha, ha joyful, joyful la, ha, ha, ha, ha. It’s not like this. The Gopis, from morning to evening the mind was on Krishna. Whatever they would do their mind was on Krishna. Wherever they would go it was only Krishna, nothing else. Whatever they would do, it was for Krishna. But their life had also struggle for their husbands, but they didn’t stop loving Krishna. They didn’t stop loving Krishna, no matter what came on the way, they loved Krishna. So if one loves like this, of course He will give you the Grace to awaken the Gopi Path inside of you, because this is part of the path, one aspect of the path which is on the spiritual path that does get awakened. In the saints, you see it very clearly! Even the Lord himself has to manifest and express the love of that path. And after that, many times He has manifested himself.

Mahavatar Babaji spoke yesterday on VBV blog of the Gopis in relationship to Atma Kriya Teachers:The Teachers of Atma Kriya can be likened unto the “Army of Christ” in days of yore, as written in the scriptures. This army of Christ carried this Banner Within: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; the Kingdom of God is Within You.” And Atma Kriya Teachers can be likened unto the Gopis in the time of Krishna who carried this Banner Within: “ Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Our Lord and Master, now and forever, no matter what may come and go!” Please take advantage of this opportunity of Atma Kriya to reach the state of Conscious Awareness of a Jivan Mukti, enlightened while living in the physical form. This is possible, So Let It Be!”

Letter from Babaji | Experience from Devotee

Letter from Mahavatar Babaji to Atma Kriya Teachers and to Everyone:
 “In earlier times I came to the enlightened Masters and they carried my message of Living Light of Love to the people of the world. In contemporary times, and at this merging of the Kali Yuga into the Sathya Yuga, or age, I come to each individual soul. Why? It is time for this to be brought into the light, as it is in Divine Will. The many Masters on the planet today teach you that this merging time of the Kal
i Yuga into the Sathya Yuga is the easiest time of all for man to mentally, physically and spiritually merge with the Divine, to become a Jivan Mukti and become enlightened like the Masters who have come before. You may simply remember that you always have been enlightened but have veiled this realization from yourself through karmic coatings of imbalances carried from one lifetime to another and another!

“Masters teach you now that the easiest way to reach the Divine in this age is to chant the Divine name of your choice continuously. Even when you are sleeping, you may develop the ability to continue this Inner chanting of the Divine name! Your teacher, Sri Swami Vishwananda and myself have developed Atma Kriya for this contemporary time, KriyaYoga for the Atma, the soul. The Teachers of Atma Kriya can be likened unto the “Army of Christ” in days of yore, as written in the scriptures. This army of Christ carried this Banner Within: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; the Kingdom of God is Within You.” And Atma Kriya Teachers can be likened unto the Gopis in the time of Krishna who carried this Banner Within: “ Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Our Lord and Master, now and forever, no matter what may come and go!” Please take advantage of this opportunity of Atma Kriya to reach the state of Conscious Awareness of a Jivan Mukti, enlightened while living in the physical form. This is possible, So Let It Be!”

Experience From A Mahavatar Babaji Devotee
My Story About Mahavatar Babaji’s
Unity With The Divine Book
by a Czech Republic devotee living in the United States
(Note: The capital letters in this story are the author’s emphasis as written to us)

When I opened my door one afternoon and saw a package in my mailbox, I knew right away that "BABAJI" had arrived !!! [Mahavatar Babaji’s book
Unity With The Divine]. I took the package into my hands and, with devotion, placed it on my heart. Unbelievable energy started pouring from the package into my whole body, which started to shake uncontrollably. I burst into tears.

I quickly opened the package and I saw the eyes of Babaji on the cover picture of the book. His eyes went through to the very depths of my soul. WHAT A BLESSING !!! I felt The DEATHLESS HIMALAYAN MASTER BESIDE ME !!! The vibrations were so strong, so intense, that I felt that my heart and my brain would explode any second.

Then I started to read
Unity With The Divine. I wanted to finish it the very same day but I couldn't, due to the profound energy which came from His words and poured throughout my body!  Beloved Mahavatar stayed with me all the time. His energy was (is) so powerful that I had problems breathing, and my body continued to shake, while tears ran down my cheeks. I had to pause and cry, and at the same time to enjoy the Godly feelings which surrounded my being with sweet, never-ending joy and bliss. The material world ceased to have any meaning to me. The physical world seemed now to be unreal, pointless, dark and very heavy. I wanted only LOVE and I realized that I was LOVE. Finally, I was able to finish the book in three days.

Our house has always been filled with positive energy. Everyone who comes to visit feels it. We have a lot of crystals placed everywhere. We have pictures of Jesus Christ, Lord Krishna, Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and Ramana Maharishi in every room, and especially in our meditation room. We also have a lot of healing pictures, but what came with this book [
Unity With The Divine] is indescribable, unspeakable.

The spirit of GODLY MAHAVATAR has stayed with us to this day and is helping us to resolve and to overcome our existing karma. We humbly BOW TO YOU, OUR DEAREST FRIEND, and OUR BELOVED JAGADGURU MAHAVATAR BABAJI.

I am placing a white lotus flower on your feet
A Devotee
Of Mahavatar Babaji and Sri Swami Vishwananda

Krishna-Christ Consciousness

Satguru [Swami Vishwananda] or Paramguru [Mahavatar Babaji] has this omnipresent quality inside. Whatever the disciple is thinking, the Guru is connected to, also. When one surrenders sincerely to the master, it is like one is grafted to the master. It’s like a rose bush: whenever the bush receives the grace and the water, of course, the grafted part also gets the grace and the water. The same thing is when one is surrendered to the Guru, whatever flows through the Guru; whatever energy; whatever Shakti is flowing through the Guru, the disciple, wherever he will be, will receive the same Grace, also.

Krishna-Christ Consciousness

“Pay less attention to Material Laws;
Pay more attention to God’s Laws.”
My Satguru’s etheric voice lovingly
And sweetly filled my room
With luminescent Light and Celestial sound
One early morn.

Times and half-times flow into infinity.
In the life of humanity, time does not stop
For even a single one.
The hourglass continues to merge into consciousness
As Material Laws solidify God’s laws of Light
Into Creation’s Face.

Man stands as God’s sentinel of the material world.
The grass of Earth covered with pure white snow
Is a visual picture of Light manifested into both
Solidified energy and the progressive
Chain of eternal life.

Let it be said that God sends the Satguru,
Who knows all about you:
Your life, your dreams and what it will take
For you to attain the Divine, the Goal of Human Life.
The Satguru encourages you to practice
Spiritual Laws, sadhana.

Divine Law stands as energetic movement
Of the God Within expressing Itself
Into material world view.
There must be a balance between Material Laws
And God’s Laws for the human being to become
God-Man realized – the goal of human life.

Chose to merge your consciousness with the teachers
Who came before you to planet Earth
And brought with them
The knowledge of God-Man. . .
Christ-Krishna-Consciousness—The Avatars.
And merge your consciousness with the God-Men
Who have reached Christ-Krishna-Consciousness
While living on Earth – the Jivan Mukti.

Let the image of God’s Love be imprinted on your heart
And merged with your essence,
Facilitating your walk into Eternity.
Liken this to the great American Civil Rights Leader,
Martin Luther King’s immortal words . . .
“Free at last—Free at Last—
Thank God Almighty—Free at Last!”
And so it can be, and when lived. . .
In-deed. . .
Becomes. . .
Christ-Krishna-Consciousness Realized!

Thank You, Swamiji, for Your Voice at dawn
The Satguru lesson,
And Your Love.

AMRIT Flows - Babaji's Picture OM Healing in Kenya

Before OM Healing Babaj's picture was placed on a devotee’s altar before we began our healing. The picture was already blessed and Amrit began to flow again right after placed on the alter. Babaji blessed us with his presence.(By: Amit Raj Maha – Swami Vishwananda Seva Society - Kenya)

A friend and I, (Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama – Lakshmi), will begin an OM Healing in Colorado, USA where I live on February 26, 2012. My daughter, Heather and I did an OM Healing group at her yoga studio for 2 years and then she moved to California and the OM Healing was discontinued. Some wonderful healing and experiences happened while we did our OM Circle and Swami Vishwananda and Babaji’s presence was felt each time by some in the group. This morning, I was inspired anew, when I read the story of the amrit appearing on Babaji’s picture in Kenya at their OM Healing meeting.

Maya Goddess of Illusion

God created maya to blind his creation; for humans not to take it for granted and to make man to strive for enlightenment! But He Himself is doing it. It is His own play. You just need to be the spectator, nothing else. The moment you have learned how to be the spectator and just see the creation in front of you, you will see the same way God does, and how He thinks about us. Our mind is like the mirror.

The heart is like a mirror covered with grease. As long as there is grease over it, do you think you will see clearly? You will never see your reflection clearly. You will know there is a reflection, yes, but it will be very foggy. So, as long as you don’t clean it, it’s difficult to see the light, isn’t it? Since the thing closest to us is the body, first your body has to be clean. When your body is clean, the mind is clean; when the mind is clean, the heart is clean. And when the heart is clean, the Divine light will shine through you and everybody will see it so clearly.

Swami Vishwananda - Healing Defying Space-Time

This is a beautiful, heart-touching story about the healing of a young boy in a serious health-threatened life situation. We are printing it here for those of you, who may have missed reading it elsewhere.


Dear friends,

On January 19, 2012, my grandson (a twin - four years old) cut his index finger. He also lost a bit of bone at the finger tip. He had put his finger into an electric motor which was turning. Within seconds we were in the car driving to the emergency room. Both the little hands of [the young grandson] and mine were full of blood.

In normal circumstances, going to the hospital takes about 8-10 min but, [unfortunately], that afternoon the road in the city center was closed; a big truck was occupying the road to move the goods of a store. After we passed that part of the road, we had to cross railroad tracks but the bars were closed, so, we had to go back and take another road [now twice losing valuable time in getting the boy quickly to the hospital].

Under much pain and, above all, terrified by the blood that soaked the gauze [wrapped around his small hand], Giovanni’s crying became a scream that tore my heart. I could not bear to hear the child cry, a child who has always been very good; in the voice of his crying vibrated an infinite goodness. His vibrations were tearing my heart; I felt every scream like a knife wound.

With a deeply broken heart I began to pray: "Master, help him, feel his goodness, please Gurudev, Swami Vishwananda, please!"

As soon as I mentally uttered the last words, he immediately became quiet. I thought that he was unconscious, but instead after 20 min when we entered the emergency room he came in walking alone. I thought: ‘My Gurudeva is "faster than light.” But, so is a prayer spoken from the depth of the heart.

In the radiology room the doctor was fondling him and saying that he had never seen so good a child. Giovanni greeted the doctor by giving him a kiss on the cheek. He began crying only in the orthopedics department when they sewed up the wound without anesthetic.

Coming home he showed no signs of pain. We told him: "You must pray to Swami Vishwananda so that He helps you to heal your little finger." He asked me: "How do I pray to Swami Vishwananda, Grandma"? Knowing that he loves Swami, I answered that it is enough to just sing "Om Om Swami Vishwananda Hari Om," knowing that this is Giovanni’s favorite song.

He asked me to open the computer to watch videos of Swami Vishwananda. In the next moment he put his finger in front of the monitor. "What do you do with the finger near the monitor?" we asked. "I gave it to Vishwananda to heal it." What sincerity, what faith; this was a lesson. This is what Jesus was thinking when he said, "Give the children to me..."

Giovanni slept well that night without waking up from the pain and also all other nights. Until today 30 January, 2012, he has not complained about the pain.

Thanks Gurudev, thanks from the heart "Om, Om Swami Vishwananda Hari Om" 

Gordana Milanko

OM Swami OM, Vishwananda, Hari OM

Swami has said the while the world and people can be living, outside, in the Kali Yuga (age of darkness) that a Master can be, inside, in the Dwapara Yuga (enlightenment). According to many: Dwapara Yuga (sung in this video song below) is the third of four yugas, or ages, described in the scriptures of Hinduism. This yuga (Dwapara) comes after Treta Yuga and is followed by Kali Yuga. According to the Puranas, this yuga (Dwapara Yuga) ended at the moment when Krishna returned to his eternal abode of Vaikuntha. (Wikipedia). Then Kali Yuga naturally follows Dwapara Yuga. If this information is correct, then we live in Kali Yuga and all the “signs of the times” point to the fact that we live in Kali Yuga. Many prophecies of the so-called end times, or Kali Yuga, tell of many conditions both of the Earth and its peoples that are happening on this Earth today in our time.

Love's Pearls of Wisdom by Mahavatar Babaji

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Guru Serves Always

The purpose of everyone’s life is to deepen the love for God and His creation. My purpose is in serving those who have set themselves this very goal – to love and realize God

~ Sri Swami Vishwananda ~

Nine to Nine

From nine to nine, the story goes,
As the reincarnational wheel turns
Round and round the worldly whirl.

Robins in the springtime come
Every year in their time,
As man appears on Earth
Each lifetime clothed in a
Different personality hue.
And taking his cue from the
Stored memories in the soul,
He takes his flight through life.

Many a man has hung on the tree,
The cross, the tree of life,
While in its time, he wanders
Each of the continents and nationality lands.
Why is this, one might say?
This is the question and answer in one.

The wheel turns slowly in the beginning,
Then faster and faster it goes
As events run into each other in
The frantic pace of today’s mankind.

Take time to “smell the roses”
Along life’s long, exhilarating,
And sometimes, weary way . . .
Brightened by a baby’s first cry
An hour of Atma Kriya meditation,
A robin’s song in springtime
A sunrise, a sunset,
The sight and smell of the summer rose,
Blooming as the sun's rays meet its beautiful face.

 In this scene, a Magnificent, Radiant, smiling
Master appears . . . Sri Swami Vishwananda,
Sent from the ethereal realms of God.
He comes to serve and to lighten your load, to bring you joy,
And to love you like no one else can,
He  shows you this same Divine Love
That lies in your very own spiritual heart,
Your Master will show you the face of God
And your eternal soul
Resting in the heart-space of you.

So zip your coat, put on your
Orange knitted cap and gloves
And go out into the snow.
Get on his toboggan. . .
The Master, God’s messenger is here
To bring you the gospel, “the good news:”
You are eternal and ever shall be.
Relax and be free.
Be free of worries and fear
And rest in the Master’s Hand and Heart
Forever and Eternal-ly!

All this story is simply traveling from Nine to Nine. . .
The nine of completion
From the beginning of Earth life
To the new beginning of Nine. . .
The forever dichotomy – the
Perfect completion of the
Beginning without beginning or end!

Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama
