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.

Do you really want to reach the kingdom of God?

During the Satsang in Lugnorre (Switzerland) on the 29th September 2009, Sri Swami Vishwananda was talking among other things about the Golden Age. A bit earlier in this Blog we already posted a Blog concerning the Golden Age or Kingdom of God, as a question arose from a participant of the Satsang, when the Golden Age will come. Mahahavtar Kriya Babaji also refers to the Golden Age in the book "Unity with the Divine" (http://www.kriyaompress.com/)
Read here what Sri Swami Vishwananda is saying about the attaining of the Golden Age:

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
Lift your hand, how many really want to attain this Golden Age? Sincerely, eh? If you want sincerely, you have to lift very high, yeah? (laughter)(Some people are lifting their hands) Wow. (laughter) That’s very good. (laughter) I am very impressed, actually.
Now to attain this Golden Age- How many among you are ready to give everything that you have? Everything, I mean everything, everything? Lift your hand, even higher than before. Yes everything. Sincerely. Even your life. (Devotee: Me) (Swami laughing) (laughter) (Devotee: It’s true, it’s true) I like this wish (laughing) (Devotee: Yeah, it’s true, it’s true. It’s true.) Hand up very high. Okay (laughter) That’s lovely. That’s sincerity. I love that.
But you see how it is: We hang so much on our fear. We we move from one fear to the other, constantly and thinking this is the reality.
We are afraid of losing. We are afraid of losing the husband, we are afraid of losing the wife, we are afraid of almost everything, you know? We are afraid of diseases, we are afraid of unemployment, we are afraid of financial, we are afraid of death, at the end we are still afraid of life and that’s the funny thing about. You are afraid of death, you are afraid of life and yet you know there is something greater, which is the Golden Age or the kingdom of God or self-realization or God-realization to be attained.

Listen here to a wonderful Jesus-Song by the Australian Band "Hillsong United". One of their most famous (and in my opinion one of the mostbeautiful songs- actually each song is amazing, lyrics and melody, atmosphere) This song is called "None but Jesus" and is about Our Bolved King Jesus, who crucified Himself for us, His children and who is always next to us, especially in the "dark hours" of our life. :-)
