  1. Lovely lesson on Vaikunta Ekadasi !

    Vaikunta – Abode of Lord Vishnu, The Protector. Vishnu incarnated as Kurma, Matsya, Rama, Krishna.. to establish dharma. Vaikunta is where Dharma lives in its pristine form. One avatara from there is enough to establish dharma here for a whole yuga.

    Those were good old days. All that has changed now. Dharma has lost its way.. Gurudeva points his finger at those of us who lament this way. He says “It’s not Dharma that’s lost its way. It is you. Dharma is eternal, universal & changeless, like the Grand Canyon”

    Pranams Sathgurudeva!

    We haven’t seen Rama or Krishna.. We don’t regret that.. because we’ve experienced your grace. You’re the Anjaneya who chose to stay back on the earth to care for us. Your avatara is evidence that Dharma is changeless. It’s we who’re changing. We’re fortunate, you’ve come into our lives. We’re happy to stay your course. Your holy feet are our Vaikunta !

    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! As ceremonies begin in Datta Peetham for the inauguration of the new Hanuman statue, I can’t help but think of all of the evidence we have seen of Hanuman’s presence across the ages. His image carved in a European Mountain and in a mountain in the western US…by whom? His ancient footprints that Swamiji found on his journeys…Hanuman is a chiranjeevi, an immortal, he is prana incarnate…just like Dharma….Om Namo Hanumate Namaha! Happy Vaikunta Ekadasi!

    jgd Swami ji i am lucky to be in the line of Sanaatana Dharma. Its to know and follow that its all Lord’s continuous play. i have to play it without attachment because nothing is permanent. i should live without disturbing others with the awareness of God’s presence every where. i am blessed with discrimination power (nitya anitya viveka), Satguru is always guiding to be on the right path may i follow Master Satguru thank You Datta onhn sgd

    When we study religions, we will see, that at the end all say the same, all have the same truth. The big soeuls, which created a religion, could see the dharma and tryed to explain at humans, how they must life, that they wll be happy, in the life and after the life. At all times there are always people and saints, which went the dharmic way and could say to the other, why it is a good way. Theire experiences showed to us, that this old knowledge is also the right way for the modern time.

    Dharma flows naturally through open hearts in harmony with nature. Thank you Swamiji for this beautiful teaching.

    Jaya Guru Datta – So appropriate a message. on the Vaikuntha Ekadashi day. Dharma is ancient and only truthful thing that is “SAT”. So ancient as the Dharma Purusha Appaji Himself, so universal and so changeless that we all have been witnessing. Thank You Appaji for guiding us all to tread this righteous path. Sri Guru Datta

    Wonderful MMS on the auspicious Vaikunth Ekadashi Day..
    Maha Vishnu is the preserver & Lord Shiva the destroyer.
    Hanumanta (Lord Shankara), the disciple of Lord Rama (Vishnu, Datta), is Himself ancient, universal & changeless. He is Dharma Himself. It is believed that Lord Hanumanta does Upasana for those who are unable to conduct themselves appropriately of auspicious days like today’s (Vaikunth Ekadashi).
    A lotus blooms & gathers energy from the rays of the Sun.
    The lotuses in our subtle body, bloom to be nourished by the Light – Guru.
    As Bala Hanumanta flies towards the Sun, crossing the clouds (Jala Tatva), in an attempt to gulp it – through Him Our Guru drives us towards the Light, erradicating all darkness..
    The MMS ends beautifully, as Hanumanta rests upon Sadguru & fades off slowly indicating that they are one.
    Sadguru is Datta – Trimurti – Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva.
    To Him, we forever bow down reverentially.
    Om Namo Narayanaya.

    Thank You so much for the wonderful Musical Message Sayings. They teach us about Dharma. It is so great to have a clear indication on what is right and what is wrong. It makes our life so much easier and the life of all living beings so much nicer. Sri Hanuman is helping us to keep on the Dharmic path.

    A great saying on Vaikhunta Ekaadasi day.The need to follow the dharma has been repeatedly emphasised by Sriswamiji and in Hinduism because it derives its strength from the vedas. Dharma should never be violated. But invariably in today’s society it may be noted that people go through various austerities but during the rest of the day,adopt deceitful means and cheat other, whatever may be their sphere of activity, forgetting the very purpose of their earlier prayers to God.They offer huge donations in temple hundies feeling that it will offset the effect of violation of Dharma while they are engaged in their respective professions.There is a big hiatus between the personal life and moral activities of such people..Salutations to You Appaji, for directing our thoughts once again on Dharma, preaching that moral values and Dharma cannot be separated from our day-to-day functions.We would work such that Dharma percolates in all walks of our life.Jayagurudatta. Om Namo Hanumate Namaha.

    According to me, Appaji is again given today the importance of Dharma. Here I think, Appaji has refined further the MMS 12, 102, 140, and 152. Now He is reminding us through today’s MMS, dharma is ancient and it is universally accepted with out any change. The photography also shows about Lord Vishnu’s Avatara like Datta Venkatasa, Lord Hanuman etc andthe Bhajan are very apt to the MSG. If you go deep in to this our mind has got an important role in it. Therefore ifwe are able to control or drive our mind by following through the earlier MMS, we will be definitely able to follow the Dharma and can understand the importance about it. But at the sametime to control the mind and it’s other branches, we have to follow only through the spiritual path. Here we need the help of our Sadguru. Therefore , Appaji we follow your words and teachings and practice Dharma to the best possible manner especially in this kaiyuga . JGD.

    JGD.Dharma is the human way of disciplined life for the sake of welfare of other beings including passed away souls. This is required to be adopted by every human being,irrespective of other factors for bringing continued prosperity to the world and to its beings.Sadguru is the torch bearer to the one who adopts Dharma,a way of life dedicated for the sake of welfare of others.So it is Universal,ancient and changeless,as Our APPAJI proclaimed in this s m s.SGD

    • Vanaja on December 25, 2012 at 8:03 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    In Srimad Bhagavatam (3.15.16 – 23) it is said: “In those Vaikunta planets there are many forests which are very auspicious. In those forests the trees are wish-fulfilling trees and in ALL seasons they are filled with flowers and fruits because everything in Vaikunta is spiritual and personal.”
    When I am walking through the Ashrama I feel the same – Thank you so much, dear Puttuji.

    “When the king of bees hums in a high pitch, singing the glories of the Lord, there is a temporary lull in the noise of the pigeon, the cuckoo, the crane, the cakravakra, the swan, the parrot, the partridge, and the peacock. Such transcendental birds stop their own singing simply to hear the glories of the Lord”.
    The same way, dear Appaij, it is when Your are talking to us devotees.
    I love You, You are bringing Vaikunta down to us on earth. When we are in the Ashrama we feel like in heaven!
    Thank You for everything.
    Sri Guru Datta

    My beloved SADGURU, how thankful I am, that YOU came to earth and teach, support and help us to find and go our way in Dharma.

    JGD Appaji
    Dharma always existed, we may have ignored it so many times.
    After the divine association with Sri Swamiji, Who exists like Hanuman through all our lifetimes..we have come to realize what is true dharma, what is the purpose of this life, how to behave etc. Thank You Appaji for these wonderful MMS! Praying one day we become perfect in following dharma all the time!
