    Pranams Jayalakshmi Mata!
    You are Gods hands that gifted us our Sathgurudeva. And His Holiness is in turn being the hands of God, when it comes to caring for this Universe.. humans and animals alike.
    In His benevolence, His Holiness wants that we also learn to be the hands of God, in caring for the world around us. In this Kaliyuga where we like to claim mastery over Mother Nature, it is a humbling feeling to see ourselves as Gods hands, serving His creation.
    Humble pranams at the holy feet of our Sathguru for having role modelled how to live a life of Universal Love.. Vasudeva Kudumbakam.. to treat every creature around us as divine.
    Seeing that divinity in all beings around us, is the beginning to seeing that divinity within ourselves too.
    Those deers, birds, squirrels.. are lucky to be fed by Sathgurudeva. So are we. We too enjoy our daily feed of 2 minute MMS. We will practice that learning to our realization. Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Thank you Swamiji for being a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves, for teaching us to remember and bless the four footed, winged, finned and creepy crawly ones! Sri Guru Datta!

    Dear Swami AVADHOTTA

    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    Jaya Guru Datta. Yesterday You spoke of kindness and today about generosity. Appaji, it is Your infinite compassion that demonstrates both of these qualities! I pray for the grace to become a vehicle of your divine love! SGD.

    Beautiful video with Sri Swamiji sharing His love and care with deers, red golden pheasant, monkey….. Sharing anything necessitates the quality of being generous. Exemplifying message, may lord bless us all with quality of sharing.

    Jaya Guru Datta! Our Datta Sathguru is a Mother when it comes to feeding. With Nitya Annadana in the Ashrama, Sri Swamiji makes sure no one leaves hungry from the Ashrama. Everywhere Sri Swamiji travels and has events, there’s free food served generously. With the “Share your food” program, many devotees are being trained to skip a meal and feed a hungry being on Tuesdays. When I was a child in India, I’d see my mother occasionally feed a hungry stray dog. She’d also leave some food outside for birds. And guests that visited never left hungry. I am seeing good examples around me to teach me to share food and feed the hungry. I hope I can always feed the hungry without consideration for size, shape, color, religion, politics etc. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. As always, it is leading by example from Appaji and this video too shows how important it is to actually practise what Appaji is teaching us (by Himself doing that). We should have the firm belief that the Lord God (our Sadguru Deva) is the only provider and we all have to become instruments in Your divine hands to mould ourselves as good citizenry. Thanks a lot Appaji.

  15. Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Sri Varalaksmyai Namah
    It is so good to know that all what seems to belong to us like our body in reality belongs to God. This knowledge makes us free. In MMS 49 Sri Swamiji told us: “Our purpose in life is to help others”. If we look to Sri Swamiji we see that He is constantly helping others. He gives us the wonderful chance to support His mission and to follow His example.

    There is so much beauty, so much love in these pictures!
    Kindness, sharing, taking care of each other,
    to see God in each and every creature
    is what makes the world heartfelt, tender and warm!
    Thank YOU so much Appaji!

    JGD. This a great message. If you analyse this statement in deep, you will realise this is the main purpose of life of a housholder. Thank You Appaji, for reflecting my learnings from your silent teaching. This is giving me the assurance that my learning/interpretation of your silent teaching is correct.

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Yes, it is pure bliss to see Thee feeding God’s creatures, Thy children, with such loving care. Thank Thee for such a lovely video.
    Sri Guru Datta

  19. rose sheppard webster

    Jai Guru Datta. Sometimes there are things we can give to others which we don’t even know we have… even if it’s just a warm smile to a stranger- at least that is one way. Sometimes i feel like i can’t help as much as i would like to because i don’t have enough money but there are other things i can do and i pray that Swamiji will show me these things. Please help me to be a good helper, Appaji. Help me to be a useful devotee. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jai Guru Datta, Appaji…thank You for another lovely MMS…we can be God’s hands in so many ways…some people feed stray animals in empty lots…some throw bread crumbs to birds each day…some offer to take the elderly grocery shopping…some clean their closets out often, and donate these items to the needy, or to neighbors…some people help others to clean their houses when they are ill… some people stop on the road to help someone change a tire, or charge an auto battery, some people offer rides to others, some people babysit neighbor’s children, some people bake pies, and offer it to a neighbor…some people offer to do some random act of kindness when there is illness in a friend or neighbor’s family, or even when there is a death…maybe even send a meal to a family…there are so many ways that we can help others…all we have to do is open our hearts, and become observant of those in need…we will follow Your example Appaji…Sri Guru Datta…Om Namo Hanumante Namaha!

  22. What a beautiful MMS , Appaji has given today, reminding us to be more benevolence to animals , trees, plants etc who are also the creation of God only in this world. Here I recollect the MMS 64, which says the animate and inanimate are a part and parcel of God only. Hence bringing life isin His hand and taking also in His hand only. Therefore as long as we alive in this janma, Appaji is advising us to be kind, to show compassion and love also to Feed animals, trees and plants etc in this nature. The photography is very apt for this MSG wherein we see, how Appaji is treating the animals like deers, birds,squirrel , and monkey which shows His compassion and love to them, over and above feeding to them. From this we have to also learn, when we follow our Appaji , it is also our duty to treat them in a similar way since they are also in the creation of God and in His hand. The Bhajan in keyboard by Appaji on Mother Goddess is also giving a soothing effect and the raga itself lead us to be more kind enough and also share generously with fellow beings. Thank you Appaji for giving such a nice lesson to us through this MMS and we follow you and also do our best for your mission. JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji _/\_!!
    Pujya Sri Swamiji, Sachchidananda Niti Mala, Atma Tattvam ::
    One should feel the presence of the Lord in all creatures. Purity of
    heart and wisdom cannot be achieved as long as a man does not see the
    Lord in every one. Universal love develops in a man who sees the Lord in
    all and serves them. This is the way to attain soul-progress. By
    viewing the fellow beings as Divine and serving them with humility a man
    grows in divinity.

    God gives and God takes. What to give to whom, when, why and how are His decisions. In the olden days rishis used to do penance to see God. Luckily we are able to see living God (Lord Dattatreya) in our Appaji !! Sadgurudeva gives, gives, gives ……for us.Everything is Yours Appaji !! You have taught us the essence of sharing and charity, we enjoy following You !!

    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha!!

  27. Ramarao Chengalvala

    I recollect a few words said by Sriswamiji in this context. ” So long as a person apportions his wealth or food or whatever that is in his posession for the benefit of the needy, it will continue to flow; the moment he stops giving , wealth may also cease to be in his hands.” Man is not sure of his next moment but still he thinks of achieving many things.As humans we consider the fleeting objects as the lasting ones. The time moves down and clock beats away the lives of us. Pranams Appaji for enlightening us on the impotence of sharing. JGD.

  28. Gilla Lalitha

    JGD Appaji – As shown and said in the MMS by Appaji, we are just mediators of God to share things with our colleagues whether humans or animals. God is giving us opportunity by this way to serve him – SGD

  29. Neelam Bhambri Nayyar, USA

    Jai guru Datta, we are greatful that you are guiding us by your own examples. We are so blessed that we are being given these oppurtunitues every day to bring about the changes in ourselves. Satnaam Satnaam Satnaam Ji. Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru Ji. Harpal Japaan Tera Na. Waheguru Ji. Tuhi Pitah Hai, Tuhi Ma, Waheguru Ji. Satnaam Satnaam Satnaam Ji. Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru ji. Pranam Sadguru

  30. Hailey

    Swamiji thank you for showing the secret of thinking and giving to beings around us instead of thinking of our own problems in that way we can expand and look at ourselves and our lives differently so thankful how most everyday message is so relevant and spot on. Surely the Divine is spoken when you speak. Help me be better devotee do your sayings and be disciplined in good things so i will have better balance and joy in my life. Please help my daughter heal and bewell her health concerns and eczema have me and her really stressed out so that my little Lalita will have peace

  31. Vinobha Devi

    Jaya Guru Datta ,Appaji,as a humble begining you have taught us to start the day with Datta Bhiksha that is we keep some rice aside and submit it in ashrama after some period, likewise appaji has seen to it that every devotee contributes for the Nitya annadana schemes,recently ‘share your food’, was also started, thank you Appaji for reminding us of our responsibilities, I pray to Appaji to give the strength to do the seva effeciently.Mata Annapurna Swaroopa Sathguru Maharaj ki jai,

  32. Maurice Clarke

    JGD. May the idea of possessiveness again subside. JGD.

  34. M.S.Venugopal

    Feeding with pure love is something great

  35. Vanaja

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Appaji is sharing food, sharing knowledge, giving shelter to the needy and blessing us with divine Nada and Bhakti. May I have a big heart for others and myself – always. May I practice to integrate the knowledge of His messages into my life.
    Sri Guru Datta

  36. Jaya Guru Datta! Yes, we are truly blessed by being fed by Sadgurudeva. Appaji, please continue to guide me to overcome the imbalance in me which still makes me very open to receive from others, but myself I’m sometimes reluctant to give, especially when it comes to being a host to guests. Sri Guru Datta!

  37. Sarumati

    Watching this video, I felt very moved by the trust and joy, that all these lovely creatures transmit
    for their friend, Sri Swamiji. And he does his task with so much surrender and devotion.
    it opens heart !
    We can do a lot for our fellow beings, too – plants, animals or humans, but do we ? every day ?
    This video is a good reminder. It motivates …

    JGD Appaji
    Such a beautiful MMS..! no words..Appaji’s compassion, grace, love and blessings are visible in His every action.
    All creation came out of divine energy.. hence the same divine energy exists in all creation. If we realize this, we can open up our hearts with compassion and love towards all creation. With Appaji’s infinite love, He has given all of us so many opportunities for selfless seva so that we learn this lesson of universal love.
    Whatever we have today in life is His gift..He will be pleased if we share our gifts with all His children.

  40. svetha

    My beloved APPAJI, what a wonderful mms! My heart jumps with joy. The idea to be God’s hand is such a new aspect for me!
    I thank YOU.
    Millions of prostrations!
