MMS is a treasure. It is a pearl, a gem, and a coral. It is of such high significance. This MMS is Kali Yuga Bhagavad Gita. What is contained in that vast book is being passed on to you in the form of small short sentences. One vast text is compiled into one short sentence. As you keep focusing on that sentence, it is enough.
Some devotees had compiled and drawn out assorted important sayings from the various books such as Neetimala, God word, Life history, so many stories that had been earlier told by Swamiji and from his various other discourses and saptahas. Swamiji has personally gone through these collections, read and re-read them and handpicked selected MMS sayings that are being sent out daily.
I am deeply saddened at the careless attitude displayed by devotees towards MMS. My heart writhes in pain. Like a small child I sit in the studio and take English lessons so that I can record my voice for the MMS. I do this for the benefit of the present younger generation. For all the trouble that I take, people who know about MMS and who are my devotees do not even have the time to see it. (Swamiji’s voice reflected deep pain). I am really, really saddened.
I am not preaching in this MMS that you should give up food in entirety, give up everything in life and to remain in silence at all hours. You continue with your samsara and life as usual.
Sometimes I think how unfortunate you are. Swamiji is giving you something precious and you are simply kicking away the knowledge (Saraswati) with your leg. This is lamentable.
To be frank, at times, I even feel insulted due to your careless attitude towards MMS. How far can I help a person desirous of climbing a tree? I can hold him and push him as far as my hand goes. Thereafter he needs to climb on his own. Those who claim that Appaji is everything to them, have no time to go through MMS. They give many lame excuses. They say that they already know this knowledge. It is not new.
If they speak thus, then what can I do? Swamiji will say, “O is it so? Ok, OK.” But in reality, you are the loser. My incarnation will go away. After this incarnation I will go away to another planet to help beings there. I will incarnate there. Tell me, what is the connection between you and me? Only if you keep the connection going, like a hook if you hold on, then again in another incarnation of mine, in another birth, you will be benefited. However, none of you seem to share such feelings. Some may have the feelings, but they lack the earnestness required for it.
Today is the birthday of Puttugam. Puttugam is grieving. So I had to tell you all. It is not your Appaji who is feeling bad. Both Jayalakshmi Mata and Ganapati are very upset that you are neglecting these valuable lessons.
My dear good devotees! This MMS is like an operation without the necessity of anaesthesia. If you truly want to rid yourselves of all your bad karmas then follow these messages daily. So far I was weeding out your infections without your knowledge. But now I am weeding them out while you are fully conscious about it. Hence it may burn a little. The first drop of medicine that is administered into the eye of a patient suffering from eye infection causes some burning sensation. The subsequent drop does not cause burning. It cools. This is because the germs would have got killed with the first drop. If you believe that the eye drop should not cause burning at all, then it cannot be administered resulting in eye damage. To protect the eye, this drop is necessary.
A thorn can be removed only with the aid of another thorn. If you plead with the thorn “Oh thorn, I love you. Please come out” Will it come? On the other hand what will happen to the leg if you decide to use a knife to remove the thorn?
I spoke all this as it was Puttugam’s birthday. It was not me who spoke. It was Puttugam. This entire earth (bhu mandala) is contained within Puttugam. I do not know if Puttugam wrote these MMS or got them written, created them or got them created. It is immaterial. As far as we are concerned this MMS is a Prasada that we are receiving from our Guru.
All of you, at least from now on, please read it and derive blessedness out of it.Please do not slide down from your existing location. Be careful. All of you are very good and supreme souls. You are Devatas. All of you are elevated beings (jeevatma). Due to the various meritorious deeds that you have performed across various births, you have had this chance of being associated with me.
