Prahlada never gave up the Name of the Lord even in times of adversities. As he surrendered himself to Lord Narayana completely, he was protected. When he was thrown into the ocean, the waves assumed the form of Lord Narayana. When he was pushed from a mountain top, Lord Narayana held him in His arms, and when he was bitten by venomous snakes, the poison became nectar. Never feel depressed when you are weighed down by difficulties. God will never impose on you ordeals that you cannot bear. Test is the taste of God. Never fear any test. When you purify your heart and surrender yourself to God completely, He manifests instantly. He does not delay even one moment. This was proved in the case of Saint Ramdas too! Vedanta says, Brahmavid Brahmaiva Bhavati - the knower of the Brahman (Divine) becomes Brahman. “As you think, so you become!” If you think of God incessantly, you will assume His form. (Divine Discourse, Dec 25, 1998)
