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.

Trust in the will of God and do it!

Devotee 14: Somebody mentioned about surrender, sometimes back.
When we use the word ‘surrender’, is it like when we do something and say “I tried this and I tried that, I have no other choice.
Therefore I am surrendering to you.
Can we say that?
Can we call that surrender?

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
No. (laughing) (laughter)

Devotee 14:
That means, I am saying on the other side I don’t want to do anything, I just surrender...?

Sri Swami Vishwananda: No, it’s not also that. (smiling)
What I mean is that what you are doing, you trust in the will of God, and do it. (smiling)
