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.

God is always ready to give

During a Satsang somebody asked Sri Swami Vishwananda following question:" We say God is fair, but we see good people suffering and bad people happy in their lives, why is that?"

Here Sri Swami Vishwananda's answer: For each person, when they are born, this comes back to the destiny part, there is karma. Somebody who does bad, and is thinking that this is the reality, do you think he will have God? Hm? It will be more difficult for this person to go away from all his things and realize God. Whereas good people who are always suffering, always focus on God and say, “Oh God, please make my suffering go away.” They always pray to the Divine to help. Do you know Krishna? He’s next to Jesus. He was alive about 5000 years ago. The same like you have Jesus, the Hindus have him. He had an Aunt, called Ghandari, and there was a big war where all the sons of his aunt were killed. When Krishna came to his auntie and said, “What do you want?“, do you know what she answered? “My Lord, give me many problems, so that I can always remember you.“ So, when people have everything and are always happy, they forget about God. But when problems arise again in the life, they run again to seek the Divine help. As you said, God is fair. He always gives.
