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.

To Love God is not a challenge

Devotee 7: Guruji?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Yeah?

Devotee 7: Aren’t we just everyday facing so many challenges?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: Not really. (laughing) Challenges- challenges are not that…
What you create, what you sow, you are reaping.
That’s what is in everyday life.
It’s not a challenge.
To love God is not a challenge.
To realize God is not a challenge.

See below a wonderful Krishna Bhajan from Mirabai- the Indian Saint, who merged with Her Beloved Lord.

Here an excerpt of one of Her very inspiring and authentic poems:

Nothing is really mine except Krishna.
O my parents, I have searched the world
And found nothing worthy of love.
Hence I am a stranger amidst my kinfolk
And an exile from their company,
Since I seek the companionship of holy men;
There alone do I feel happy,
In the world I only weep.
