  1. {Lalitha – She who plays} {Ekakshari – One (Ek) who is imperishable (akshara) – From the Lalitha Trisathi Mantra } { Bhajan – Madalamba; Album – Amba Gana Vaibhavam}
    She is the Primordial Energy that empowers all other forms of Energy. She is eternal.
    She plays. And she energises the play that we are all a part of. She is Prana empowering our body, and through the body she empowers our mind and intellect.
    Pranams Deviswaroopa Sathgurudeva!
    Dressed in green, you are our Mata Annapoorani. You are the Energy in all the greenery that is the primary source of food for mankind. Green is life.
    Bhojan & Bhajan define your mission. Through bhojan you energise the body, for it to support the mind. And through bhajan you energise & enrich the mind. Through that nourishment, you fuel the sadhak’s aspiration for progress in the inner & outer worlds.
    We now appreciate why you give so much importance to Annadana. We follow you.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! Each day Swamiji is feeding our minds with proper knowledge. He feeds our souls and heals and nourishes our bodies with His music and Datta Kriya Yoga. All He asks of us is that give up one meal a week and share the equivalent of one meal with others. Hunger is everywhere, not just among the poor, and not just in our bodies. Let us all find ways to nourish one another as we can with all of our resources, not just money. Sri Guru Datta!

  2. JGD.The message is appropriate for the day.Saint Ramalinga Thirvartprakasa vallalar,who attained swadehamukti,through ether,on this makara pournima day in 19th centrey at VADALUR,near Cuddalore,in Tamilnadu State,india,preached to give alms before knowledge,as hungry prevents other qualities of the living beings.O! APPAJI! how kind enough u r to all jeevas.SGD.

    As a child I observed my mother feeding a few stray animals and birds as well as hungry homeless people. Everyone knows that feeding people that come to the Ashrama has been an important activity in the history of the Ashrama. In following our Guru, we then need to do the same in our homes/communities. While Sri Swamiji instructs us on our dharma, he also wraps these charities in to our lives so beautifully and almost playfully that before we realize it, we are already part of such a charity. The “Share Your Food Tuesday” comes to mind as an example. We didn’t need to think about or analyze the merits of this activity. We simply had to skip a meal and feed someone hungry because Swamiji told us to. Thank You, Swamiji, for these valuable lessons and for weaving little acts of charity in to the tasks you have us do. You teach us how to earn good karma, but you also make such tasks part of the little games you have us play. Truly, your love for us knows no bounds. Pranams at the Lotus Feet.

    By seeing today’s MMS, everybody knows that our Appaji Himself as the great Annadana Prabhu in this kaiyuga. According to me, in various occasion , Appaji used to say amoungall the Sevas in which we are involving, Annadana seva is very great and gives Punya. That is why Appaji has even organised a trust in the name of His Divine Mother for this noble causewherein we all know that everyday in our Ashrama this seva is doing .Even in our Cochin Ashrama we are daily giving poor feeding. In the photography Appaji is seen as Mata Annapurni, wearing in green sari. Puttuji as you explained, green means flourishing is there. I even remember here Appaji’s one of the old Bhajan , naimly—- Annapurna jnanapurna sadadathume in Surya deva CD. Through Bhojan Appaji is energising our body and through Bhajan ,He energises and enriches our mind. Not only that when we sing His Bhajans , it is like adyalises for our body itself. Therefore Appaji we got your concept and do the Annadana seva for the needy and also do our besfor development of your mission. JGD.

    • Prakash Gorugantu on January 28, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Jaya Guru Datta… Swamiji is suggesting us that God has blessed us with everything we need in life in some form or the other. Please make an attempt to give a little of what we have to those do not possess, so that it helps them to survive. He is instructing us to do Daana and more importantly “Annadaana”. Live and Let Live. Let us follow Pujya Sadguru Deva till the last breath. Sri Guru Datta

Tere ghar jo aa ke khaaye usakaa tu mashquool ho, kyonki usaney apanaa khaayaa tere dastarkhaan par’. Skipping a meal and sharing with needy what a discipline shown by Gurudeva. Mother nature has bestowed us with the best and in plenty if we share and care the needy She will be satisfied in the form of the hungry let us continue this practice and enjoy the satisfaction by feeding the needy onhn sgd

  5. Dear Pavani Kamalapuram,
    My greetings to you. You are right. Music to the ears,celestial as that of Swamaiji and annadhamnam,food to the hungry –vital, for today’s scenario. I bow before to Him,
    .

    • Joseph on February 16, 2013 at 5:11 am

    Only hunger can be satisfied amongst all the desires and food is one of the basic need for all living beings. What else can be the best charity than feeding the hunger! Tuesday “Share your food” by Sri Swamiji’s message to inculcate charity in us is amazing. May lord bless us all towards righteousness.

    • S.Radhamani on February 17, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Hunger is the deadliest of all sufferings that one can imagine and the best form of charity
    is feeding the hungry. That is the best way not only to alleviate the suffering,but also the
    BEST WAY TO PLEASE GOD.
    I agree with you Joseph, feeding the hungry is the best form of charity.
