Mind is compared to a maddened monkey drunk with the wine of desire, stung by the scorpio of jealousy at the success of others and possessed with the demon of pride. Gurudev Shri Swami Vishvas Ji proclaims that lust, greed, jealousy, anger, stress and strain are the symptoms and not the disease. Disease is the mind. As malaria fever is the disease, head-ache, shivering, vomiting, body pains, temperature are the symptoms.
Immersed deeply in material pursuit and worldly affairs, a man is generally blinded to the existence of ‘Inner Thirst’. What to talk of quenching it? When man gets frustrated with the mirage and false glamour of this ephemeral world, he realizes that this external world of senses is not the be-all and end-all. Then he turns his attention inwards and finds that there is something behind and something within which is eternal and real and the search for that Real – that Eternal – that Blissful springs up.
On 12 April, 2008 the grand hall of Inderdhanush Auditorium in Sector-5, Panchkula was packed to its full capacity with the aspirants drowned in deep meditation. Everyone had a blissful experience of divine appointment when Gurudev Shri Swami Vishvas Ji expressed His deepest heart felt feelings in His Holy voice:-

Mind --> Brain --> Nerve Centre --> Eyes
We all are possessed of Inner Power, true self; all Pure and Perfect God or Ever-lasting Bliss by whatever name you may call it.
In the poem ‘Psalm of Life’ the poet describes the feelings of a young man expressed to a palmist:
Peace is a rare commodity in the life of a man involved in the intricacies and complexities of life. Unshakeable peace is beyond the reach of a stressful person. Stress and strain is the order of the day whether one is living in palaces or in cottages. Along with the prosperity and progress in the world, worries and miseries have also increased. We should have full conviction in one stern fact that our true nature is Peaceful. Only in the men and worries and anxieties over-cast this true nature of unshakeable - peace.
In spite of tremendous struggle and strife day and night, we live almost in a drunken state. We live with the minimum of consciousness. We go on doing things, we go on moving this and that but we are not conscious. Just as Keats said,
Foundation stone of Vishvas Meditation Centre, Mohali was laid on February 21. The tent was packed to its capacity. A wave of calmness prevailed over the audience. Then a holy voice came from the front:
As there is endless suffering and sorrow in this world, Buddha’s conviction was that this world is full of sorrow. Most poets ardently expressed that “Our sweetest songs are those that tell us of saddest thought”. Tragedies are generally more heart-touching and popular than other works.
