How to Find the Lord is the first discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Fiesch, Switzerland. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 7. This discourse is the first chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.
Anandamurti starts this discourse discussing this verse—
Náhaḿ tiśt́hámi Vaekuńt́he na ca yogináḿ hrdaye,
Ahaḿ tiśt́hámi Narada mad bhaktá yatra gáyante.
In this verse is the mythological abode of Vishnu, but he says to Narada that he does not stay in that place, nor he stays in the hearts of the general spiritual practitioner, He shifts His abode, His nucleus, to that place where His devotees are singing the Lord's name, and doing their kiirtana. In such condition, Parama Purusa has no other alternative but to shift His nucleus to the spot where His devotees are singing.
Then Anandamurti suggests to create a divine environment, not only on this small planet, but in the entire Cosmos. He says that to get divine bliss and taste divine nectar, people should do kiirtana. To unite this artificially-divided humanity, only spirituality can help.
