IMAGES OF SWAMI CHIDANANDA


OM HARI OM
Bhagavan Shri Swami Chidananda Paramahansa

By Shri Swami Vivekayuktananda Saraswati Maharaj

I saw a man dressed in Swami clothes,
I looked at him with the eyes of the Self,
then I said:
"This man does not need to be dressed in any special colour,
because He has got the God's colour in his skin."
I saw the movements of this man.
I saw the waving of his hands.
I saw his gentle walk, and then I said:
"This is God who is moving in this world,
This is God who is waving his hands, blessing us,
This is God who is walking in this world".
I saw this man talking, then I said:
"This is the voice of God in this world",
I heard this man singing, and then I said:
"This is the Eternal Song of God".
I saw his eyes and found that it was God who was looking through those eyes.
I saw this man, and I saw that although He was staying in this world,
and carrying out his tasks in this world, this man was not a man,
since every atom of his body was shining
with the power of millions of suns.
He was God dressed as a man, He was a Bhagavan,
He was a Paramahansa.
Bhagavan Shri Swami Chidananda Paramahansa

This is what I saw when we first met in the year 1969, in Argentina, South America. I saw the same again in the year 1972, in Mother India. I saw the same in the year 1980, in Venezuela, South America. And I saw the same again in 1992 in Mother India.

I will repeat it:
"I saw him through the eyes of the Self. Through those eyes which are All-Seeing,
that is to say that what I am saying is not based on any sentiment or reasoning.
I saw what this man Has Been and Is.
I kept on seeing him in this way, and so I keep on seeing him, and so I will keep seeing and calling him:
Bhagavan Shri Swami Chidananda Paramahansa
God in India
God in the world
God among men.
Glory unto his name!
