ABOUT BHAKTI MARGA

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is a fully realised spiritual Master, whose international mission, is known as 'Bhakti Marga', the path of devotion. He travels the world to encourage all people to recognise the universal Love that lies within each human being, and to awaken their innate ability to express that Love in their daily lives.

Effortlessly connecting principles of eastern spirituality with elements of western spiritual tradition, Paramahamsa Vishwananda reveals the underlying oneness of the Divine and inspires a unique experience of spirituality, regardless of culture, religion, gender or age.

The simple yet transformational spiritual practices he teaches are designed to help each individual move toward more peaceful and inspired life experiences. Accessing the wisdom of the heart, these practices help change the way you relate to yourself, others and the world around you.

Giving Darshans and Satsangs tirelessly as he travels throughout the year, Paramahamsa Vishwananda introduces simple but profound concepts in a very personal way, answering questions about love, life, death, healing, and faith.

Most recently, his commentaries on supplementary Vedic texts and on the Shreemad Bhagavad Gita, one of the most popular sacred Hindu scriptures in the world, help a worldwide audience gain a deeper understanding of the universal messages they contain, and make ancient wisdom accessible and applicable to contemporary life.

PREFACE

What are you searching for?

Everybody goes through life, consciously or unconsciously, in an unavoidable quest for love and happiness. The real question is: how many people really achieve everlasting love and happiness in their lives? Very few.

In the physical plane, everything has a dual nature and nothing lasts forever. Everything on Earth has a beginning and an end, but most often, human beings ignore this impermanent and transitory nature of life. They take their existence for granted, rely on earthly things for temporary satisfactions, and unknowingly doom themselves to continual suffering in a perpetual vicious cycle. They keep turning around and around and around, unaware, and without a true sense of direction or purpose in life.

Since time immemorial, Masters have come on Earth to remind us of our divine nature and of the true purpose of our existence: to realise the eternal Love relationship of our soul with the Supreme Soul (commonly referred to as Creator, God, Divine Source), even while living on Earth. Only then can one be truly happy, feeling in continuous connection with this Divine Love and supreme bliss at every moment, wherever one is, whatever one is doing.

Today, millions of people are actually searching for a new direction in life. When this longing reaches a point where people start searching sincerely, and are willing to purify and transform themselves, God appears before them, in flesh and blood, in the form of the Guru.

Although a true Guru, a Satguru, is a great mystery that human minds can’t fathom, we can say that the Guru is a pure embodiment of Divine Love, a manifestation of the Divine Consciousness. It’s a sacred universal phenomenon, where the Supreme Divine Source descends on Earth and lives in a body to be close to human beings and to serve them.

The Guru has been often referred to as the Kalpataru or Kalpavriksha (wish-fulfilling tree), because the Guru fulfils people’s wishes and helps them to advance spiritually until they are ready for the fulfilment of the soul’s unique desire.

The Guru is also seen as the Philosopher’s Stone: a catalyst for transformation. This means that whomever comes in contact with the Guru begins to change from a human being into Divine. In fact, across all traditions, the Guru’s Grace has converted even great sinners into great saints, such as St. Paul (Christianity), Angulimala (Buddhism), and Valmiki (Hinduism), among many others.

Whether you have met your Guru or not, this book was designed to be a precious daily companion to help you to develop and strengthen your attunement to your inner Guru, your inner Self, so that you may fulfil your higher life purpose in the world.

It contains 365 sacred Guruvakyas (insights spoken or
