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.

Faith makes everything happen

This is an excerpt of a Speech of Sri Swami Vishwananda from the 5th February 2010.

Sri Swami Vishwananda: A few months back I have explained, when somebody goes to a saint and
says, “Oh, Mr. Saint, (Swami and people laugh), please, heal me.”
And the saint says, “Okay, just take this medicine and you will get well.”
What makes it happen?
It’s the faith that the Saint has that the person will get healed.
So this faith makes everything happen, makes the healing happen, resolves all of your problems.
Not the drinking, not the smoking.
These are just excuses that humans always try to find.
They get peace just for a short while and then after that more trouble.

Learn hear more about one female Saint, who had strong faith in God.
Teresa of Avila was a nun who reformed the order of the Carmelites, an ascetic who had mystical visions and communications from God. Charismatic and controversial, she founded monasteries throughout Spain, and is known by works that include her autobiography and The Way of Perfection. She was beatified in 1614 and canonized in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV, and in 1970 was made a Doctor of the Church.

Video with pictures of St. Teresa de Avila- with the background music of "Nada de turbe"- a song that we also sometimes sing in our Chapel in Springen.

Nada te turbe;
nada te espante;
todo se pasa;
Dios no se muda,
la paciencia
todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene,
nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.

May nothing disturb you.
May nothing astonish you.
Everything passes.
God does not go away.
can attain anything.
He who has God within,does not lack anything.
God is everything!
