Swami Nishchalananda online Satsang 25/11/23
In this Zoomsang, Swamiji gives an inspiring meditation on Christmas. He then answers questions on the wide range of subjects covered in the Tantric texts, including black magic. He says that wars, strife and suffering have always existed in the past and continue in the present era. It is incomprehensible as to why this is the case but emphasises the importance of compassion; that by changing ourselves we can positively affect our environment (both locally and world-wide).
Our positive input, in thought, word and deed, can have a positive impact on the world and how it functions. There is ‘something’ far greater than our sensory and intellectual understanding, which we can access in meditation and which can give a completely revolutionary perspective on our lives and the planet. Sages worldwide, from all traditions, have inspired us with their words even during times of enormous strife.
Swami Yogananda says "I am here to be the Witness of the human comedy and tragedy with an attitude of immutable Happiness". Being the Witness/ Awareness to all our actions can create conflict. Swamiji suggests that we focus on the work at hand when it needs our attention, and abide in the Witness or Awareness when we are quiet, perhaps during our spiritual practice.
Swamiji wishes everyone ‘Merry Christmas’ and urges us to consider every day as Christmas and to not forget children and those who are suffering.
