About this Blog

This Blog is a collection of excerpts from talks given by Sri Swami Vishwananda. Please note that this Blog does not focus on dates, background and the exact original way of how Swamiji delivered the speech. We edit the talks slightly, presenting them in a kind of “poetic” format. This means we choose certain paragraphs from a talk which reflect a particular theme.
Read them as pieces of Divine Wisdom, meditate upon the words and just feel how Swamiji is addressing you with His words.

Tests on the spiritual path

On this way there are lots of tests that God puts on to his children. If somebody has pleasure about something and sticks to the pleasure, the pleasure will bring lots of other pleasures, other desires, other wants - if mankind doesn’t really release himself from this game and sticks to its thinking. If you have put your mind to realize God, if you have put your mind that you want to know who you really are – focus on it, no matter what comes on the way, how strong the test can be! Keep praying, ask God, “Lord, it’s You who gave me this test, and I know I want only You!” And make your will strong, make your will strong that even God will run towards you. And ask God for strength, for whatever tests he’s putting on you, that you don’t lose hope and that you don’t go back into your old game.
