  1. {Sakaladhara rupini: She personifies (rupini) all (sakala) that supports (adhara) creation} {Sarva sumangala karini: She drives (karini) every (sarva) auspiciousness (sumangala)} {Ikararupa: She personifies the letter I – Icha Shakthi – will power – of her devotees}
    Mother Earth is the epitome of tolerance & patience. What’s she having to tolerate? Who’s testing her patience?
    She’s having to tolerate our self-centered actions which threaten peace & tranquility (santa) of life on this Earth. We’re testing her patience when we act that way.
    We seem to believe we’re superior to Mother Nature. But actually we’re at her mercy. For, she’s Sakaladhara rupini & Sarva sumangala karini.
    Pranams Sathgurudeva!
    We realize the animate & inanimate are all part & parcel of Her Divinity (MMS64). We’ll never do anything that hurts Mother Nature. We’re grateful for her patience & tolerance. We’ll follow you, in living those qualities always.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

  4. jaya guru datta,sri guru datta. as appaji always says patience is the greatest penance, mother nature is constantly and patiently bearing all the activities of all the living and non living things in the nature.it is due to the wrong deeds that is happening around the world that leads to various catastrophies in nature like earth quake, flood and other natural calamities.everyone has to lead a truth and honest life and learn to live in peace and harmony and theryby please mother nature by doing good deeds. we as devotees of appaji are very fortunate to have him as guruji / master who guides us to lead a life of peace and harmony.

    329. సహనానికి, ఓర్పుకి భూమాత ప్రతీక. ఓం శాంతాయ నమః – ఓం ఐం హ్రీం శ్రీం ఈకారరూపాయై నమః
    భూమాత అంటే కేవలం మట్టి కాదు. ఇంత స్పీడ్ గా ఆకాశంలో తాను గిరగిరా తిరుగుతున్నా, మనల్ని ఒక్క అంగుళం కూడా అంతరిక్షంలోకి జారి పడిపోనియ్యకుండా అతిప్రేమతో ఒడిసిపట్టుకున్న మన తల్లి. తనలోపలినుండి పుట్టి, పెరిగి, ఫలించే ధాన్యాలను, కూరలను, పండ్లను మనకు ప్రతిరోజూ ఆహారంగా తినిపించి, తనపై పుట్టి, పెరిగే గోమాత పాలను రోజూ మనచేత ఏదో రూపంలో త్రాగించి, మన ఊపిరికి కావలసిన మంచి గాలిని మనకు సమకూర్చి, మన ప్రాణాలను కాపాడే, మనలను, మన వస్తువులను శుభ్రపరచే మంచినీటిని మనకు రోజూ అందేలా చేసి, మన జీవనానికి అత్యవసరమైన సూర్యరశ్మిని మనకు వేడి విపరీతంగా తగలకుండా, చక్కటి వాతావరణంతో చల్లబరచి ఇచ్చి, మనం నిబ్బరంగా నడవటానికి, పడుకోవడానికి స్థిరమైన నేలను అమర్చి, మనం హాయిగా విమానాలలో విహరించడానికి ఆకాశాన్ని, మనకు వర్షాలు కురిపించటానికి సముద్రాలను, తద్వారా మేఘాలను తయారు చేసి, మనం ఊహించలేనన్ని విధాలుగా మనలను ఆదరించి, పోషించి, మురిపించి, రంగు రంగుల పక్షులతో, పుష్పాలతో అలరించి, రాత్రి, పగలు, “మీకు నేనున్నాను”, అని ధైర్యం చెప్పే ముద్దుల అమ్మ. సూర్యుడైనా సాయంత్రమయ్యేసరికి వదలి వెళ్తాడు కానీ, నేల తల్లి ఎప్పుడూ మనతోనే ఉంటుంది. విమానంలో పైకి ఎగరేసినా, దిగేసరికి పట్టుకోవటానికి సిద్ధంగా ఉంటుంది. “అమ్మను కొలిచిన దక్కనిదేమిటే?” జయ భూమాత!

    Earth is not just the ground we walk on. She is our mother who holds us tight against her chest so that we do not fall off into space in spite of her incredibly speedy revolutions around herself and her rotations around the sun. She grows from under her skin the food we eat everyday. The cows that give us our daily milk are born and raised on her body. She makes available to us clean air and clean water to keep us alive. With her atmosphere she cools the rays of the sun to keep us from getting scorched. She gives us the sky to fly around in our airplanes but is ready to hold us safely when we are ready to land. The sun leaves us every evening but Mother Earth is with us 24/7, ever dependable, firm, steady, and most patiently loving. Let us simply love her back with equal zeal and unselfishness. Let us keep her looking pretty and feeling happy with all her children. Let us show her that we are also capable of such love and commitment. Thank you Mother Swamiji for being our Mother Earth. Jaya Guru Datta

    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Santaya Namah
    Even in the International Space Station (ISS) humans can live only for a short time and need strong support from Mother Earth. It is a great wonder that so many living beings can live in the middle of the interplanetary vacuum. We can learn from Her utmost patience and tolerance. We can show to Her love, respect and utmost care.
    Thank you for this wonderful MMS.

    Let us all worship Mother Earth, Mother Bhumi and respect Her in every action. Let us behave in a way that she need not be patient and tolerant with us. Sri Guru Datta

    • Antony Ramnarine on April 24, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. Nature is God. We belong to Mother Earth and share life with all of God’s creation. This is enshrined in the Dattatreya Principle as described by Sri Swamiji.

  5. JGD & SGD, Pranamamu to the Lotus feet of HH Sri Appaji. Holy Mother is Epitome of tolerance and gives every thing to living beings. Be it Gold or Grain, every thing is from Mother Earth. In addition Mother Earth returns manifold. One seed gives rise to a great plant and gives back hundreds of fruits and seeds. Ancient Vedic Hymns offer prayer to Mother Earth early in morning before one steps on floor to forgive.

    By seeing today’s MMS, indirectly Appaji is reminding us that for a peaceful life we should also practice tolerance and patience and that will be only eternal. In Mother’s creation in nature all of them are doing their duty perfectly and independently and by doing so they don’t develop any ego, jealous or pride etc amoung themselves . Even they don’t expect anything in return from us also. But as a
    humanbeing in this Kaliyuga they are more attracted in unwanted desires and worldly pleasures and there by to acquire the same , they will go to any extend of level and due to that they develop ego, jealous or pride in their life. But inspite of that the Mother Earth is so kind enough to withstand everything and show tolerance and patience to them. This is because She is Sakaladhara rupini . Therefore the Bhajan is very apt for this MSG. At the sametime if they exceed the limit of their desires etc, then She will neither tolerate nor show any patience. This we can see in this world by way of earthquake , cyclone and so on. But again here those who follow our Sadguru will always be safe in such situation. Therefore it is a lesson for us that in this Kaliyuga , we should not unnecessarily involve in unwanted desires etc. Hence to overcome this we should follow our Appaji’s words and teachings in which case we will be always safe. The photography is also apt for this MSG wherein we can see how the Mother Earth is keeping this nature with her tolerance and patience. JGD.

    In learning the Indian classical dance form of Bharatnatyam, we are asked to first bow to Mother Earth since we’d be stepping and kicking with our feet during the dance. But in real life, it’s not often that I’ve stopped to think about the patience and tolerance of Mother Earth until Sathgurudeva pointed out. Mother Earth does endure all our actions which affect the planet adversely, yet we are blessed with abundance. We go through massive deforestations, landfills, non-biodegradable wastes, industrial pollution and much more. Yet, Mother Earth continues to support life through all the attrocities mankind inflicts. I pray to Swamiji that I learn the virtues of tolerance and patience too. Without regard for whether living beings are thankful or not, Mother Earth continues to feed and sustain us. By Swamiji’s grace, I’m learning that it’s important to carry out your duty and shine like the sun and be patient like Mother Earth without regard to others’ behavior. Pranams at the Holy Feet!

    JGD Appaji – We do not have any words for the mother earth patience and the way she treating her children in so many ways. One thing we can do to serve her by planting trees and saying “shathakoti vandanaalu to the mother earth” – Happy Sri Hanuman Jayanthi – Sri Ram Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama – SGD

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Appaji has like Mother Earth great patience and tolerance. May I cultivate both.
    Sri Guru Datta

  8. Many years ago I had a dream wherein someone was after me and I just dug a hole and hid in Mother Earth! I was protected… I felt safe! i will never forget that dream. what a comforting dream always.
    Mother Earth is always there for us.
    I had a thought(ut0oh) that, wouldn’t it be nice if we all just referred to ourselved as Mother Earthians… No Americans, no Russians no Indians, No Europeans, no North Koreans…Just Mother Earthians…
    And the thought continued… A scenario….
    walk up to someone and ask, “what are you?” I’m a Mother Earthian!”
    And to another, and What are you? “Well, I’m a Mother Earthian too!”
    And so on and so on and so on….
    And , What is your name? ” My name is BHU” And to another… “Well, my name is BHU too! and so on and so on…
    I garnished my salad today with the herb cilantro (from Mother EArth!) It’s a Mother Earthian Herb you know…(If it could talk , it would tell you that it too was a Mother EArthian) But not to get off on a tangent….
    This herb is called cilantro in Mexico, Coriander in India, another name in all sorts of the world. But it is the exact same herb!
    I think the corrulation here is to say, a human is a human is a human, born of Mother Earth. We may talk differently and look differnetly but we are the same. Mother Earthians…of Mother Earth, protected by Mother Earth.
    Maybe for just one day we can play this game of Mother Earthian around the globe. And those who don’t want to play the game… Well, they have to get off! Just for a day , let’s play! (I.s smiling a Mother Earthian smile!) JGD!

  9. Forgot about Religion!
    “and what religion are you”?
    And the reply! “Oh, well, we Mother Earthians really don’t have a religion of sorts..but, if we had to have a religion it would be , of course, Mother Earthian Religion. Yes, of course…
    But, you see, that when you are one with Mother Earth, tataly one with her, (really as we should be,we are so connected twirling through the cosmos) but, when you are really one with her, there is no need for a religion of any sort… You are at Peace and hear her humm, her gentle humm, like an OM I guess… but is is a humm, a lullaby…but a lullably not only at nighttime as you would think, but all the time! ALL the TIME… For when you are one with Mother EArth, there IS no Time…
    Oh, and the birds! The Birds Mother Earth blesses her creation with! thousands upon thousands of melodious birds to enchant her inhabitants!
    If you have never listened to a Mockingbird, you will understand when you listen to her song…. I think a tear will come to your eye, as it does mine right now…and a moment of gratefulness, Of humbleness…NOW… As the bird sings…As the world turns.
    And we are…
    A miracle indeed, we, Mother Earthians…….Jai Guru Datta!

  10. I forgot to lay these words and thoughts at my Sadguru’s feet! And to say that , my Sadguru IS The king of the kingdom of this Bhu (EArth). I know it sounds funny and rather insane, But I think it is true….sounds funny huh? The King of the kingdom of BHU? OH God! And I am thinking, pleeze, Swamijij, don’t have me say that on an international forum! Come on…
    But, it’s true how I feel…..
    And that I, no, that my soul within me, Loves him soooo much…. There is no mistaken… My soul loves him HIM sooo much! JGD!

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on April 26, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    JGD Appaji
    Appaji is Mother Earth! He is the ultimate epitome of Love and Compassion.
    Everything in nature except Humans give selflessly. With Appaji’s guidance we will also implement this great quality of not being affected by situations or people and doing our work selflessly with love.

    so why quarrel about different cultures, religions, thinkings?
    Our star faithfully carries us through this vast universe, giving us so many boons, the lovely
    plants and birds, and our dear Swamiji , who blesses us. So, let`s be tolerant and patient, too !

  11. JAYA GURU DATTA! Shathakoti Shastanga pranams to lotus feet of Parama Poojya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachidananda Swamiji. it is Truth. Appaji, thank u for sending excellent MMS, SRI GURU DATTA!
