My first encounter

Swami arrived at my house on a nice and sunny summer afternoon, he remained for ten minutes in the doorway. Everyone was awe-inspired. I couldn’t help repeating in my head: “Babaji is here, Babaji is in my house! This is incredible. My God, how beautiful he is!”
As a matter of fact, all those present could not say a word before this handsome twenty-one-year-old boy radiating the Divine. We went on the terrace to observe this ´rare bird´ fallen from Heaven. I was surprised to feel so at ease with him, like an old friend whom I hadn’t seen for a long time. Click here to read the rest of the story(by Pritalananda)

 Swami Vishwananda in meditation

Who is Swami Vishwananda?

Many friends ask me this question. Actually this is a very difficult question and is nearly impossible to find an answer. If you look at his life, his teachings and how he behaves with people whom are around, you can see only pure love and light. It doesn’t matter, what he is doing, he does everything with much love and patience. He has patience with everyone and loves everyone in the same way. He would never judge or talk bad behind your back. Some people judge him because they don’t understand who he really is. They have an image about a Guru in their mind and think he has to be like they want him to be. Click here to read the rest of the story(by Pari)



An extraordinary being
I know Swami Vishwananda as a very close friend. I met him in India at an ashram in March 1998. I was standing in a busy square, waiting for some people, when a young Indian man approached me. He asked me if I were Swiss and I answered, “Yes”. His question initiated a conversation that lasted the entire afternoon while we sat together by the side of a busy street in India. From the first moment I met Swami Vishwananda, I felt very close to him.

Two days later Swami Vishwananda left to return to his home in Mauritius. Before leaving he asked me to promise to visit him at his home. However it was in London, England that I saw him next. Shortly after that meeting I travelled to Mauritius to visit, and we continued to develop the very close friendship I had felt the moment we first met in India.

God as a friend

In 1999 I traveled extensively in Switzerland with the young Swami Vishwananda. He was virtually unknown at that time and not recognized as the guru that he is. Also I had spent time with him as a guest in his house in Mauritius. The young man radiated happiness, love and joy.

I must have tested his patience many times by wanting to go to places he was not interested in visiting or asking him to wait while I did something he did not want to do. All the time we were together the young Swami Vishwananda never complained or showed that he disliked anything. Click here to read the rest of the story(by Urs)
