  1. Puttu Gam

    Has it ever happened that the devotee believed in Him and He let him down? The Lord protects all who seek refuge in Him.. whether the cows (Govinda), or Prahlada ( Narassimha ).

    Has it ever happened that the flower has bloomed, and the bee did not come? MMS 92 said ‘The Guru comes to the disciple when the disciple is ready for spiritual initiation’. So, the disciple just has to ‘Nama Vadami Sada Nruhare’ ( Chant the lords name always ).

    Sage Narada introduced love of the Lord’s name into Prahlada, when Prahlada was in his mother’s womb. Even as a child, Prahlada practiced what he learnt from the Saint, in the midst of serious hardships. Did the Lord let him down?

    So too, His Holiness is introducing us to the Lord’s name. We get the message Gurudeva. We will immerse ourselves in Nama Sankeertana. We follow you. Each one of us – your children.. are testimonies to : Has anyone remained without success after praying to saints? None. Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji.

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji for this reminder that God answers all prayers. I once was taught that God answers prayers in a few different ways, with a “yes” granting us what we asked for, with “no” because what we asked for isn’t good for us, or with a “not yet….” because it isn’t time…but “all” prayers are answered in some way, but only in God’s time, not ours…You once taught us that the only prayer we should make is to ask that God grant us, or whomever we are praying for all the resources needed to face and complete whatever karma that is being prayed about at that time….This is truly one of most powerful prayers I have ever learned. Each day, I pray that all living beings needs are met in this way….whenever I encounter any sad situation that I can’t do anything about, I at least know that I have made that prayer and that that person or place has been part of it….Jaya Guru Datta for that gift and for these wonderful messages….

    No, I don’t know anyone! But I know a lot of people who are successful, even when they pray only sometimes!

  5. Vanaja

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    praying is such a powerful tool! And yes – saints are listening – god is always listening. I want to thank my parents that they learned me how to pray. I want to thank the father from the church in my childhood who teached me about god. Specially my grandma told me about the different saints (from the catholic church) and visited the churches with me.
    Last but not least, million thanks to Swamiji to bring me in contact with hinduism! A whole new world to explore and yes, with Swamijis grace the fusion of christianity and hinduism happened for me. May it be as easy for my two children to grow up in christianity and the Datta family. Pranams to Sadgurudeva.
    Sri Guru Datta

  12. JGD Puttuji. I do not know of any such people. Appaji has been so incredibly kind to us that He taught us how to pray and what to pray for. If we have followed His lessons with unwavering faith and unconditional love, success is surely on our side. His countless blessings are always upon us, His forgiveness is the only reason we are all still living. Ammanu kolchina dakkanidhi edhi?? Jgd. Love my Sadguru, my Appaji. He alone is my tower of strength.

  13. Sheetal Prasad

    JGD. If not impossible, it is at least highly improbable that true success can be gained and retained without the blessings of Saints.

  14. Madhu Talwar

    jgd from some common punjabi bhajans i know that the Saints are co-relatives of All mighty God, for Their disciple they may request or challenge God also. They have special account and understanding to help those who pray sincerely humbly and are in real need. A saint can rewrite the fate if He likes, may i be under the care of my Swami ji Who is Saintly incarnation of God. onhn sgd

  15. Glory of Rama

    Many people disbelieve the statement made above by the wise sages. That is because such people in their ignorance believe falsely that they know what is to their benefit and what is not. They demand for specific favors from saints. When such favors are denied, they begin to criticize God’s messengers on earth. Such are the people who will perhaps criticize Lord Narasimha for killing Prahlada’s father, not acknowledging the fact that Hiranyakashipu kept trying to kill the child by giving him poison, getting him trampled by elephants, stung by serpents, and flinging him into deep chasms from cliffs.
    Saints, who are helpers to mankind sent by God in His infinite compassion, always do what is beneficial, whether their gifts please the individual at the time or not. All their blessings may not be obvious to the common man’s eye. One, who wishes for a certain job and prays for it specifically, may not get that specific job. The holy man might bless the devotee with another job that would benefit him in the long run. What the person wished for might not be the best suited or the safest job. One who recognizes the divinity in great souls, and places complete faith in their judgment alone will recognize the beneficial results of his prayers. Many others who receive benefits as a result of their prayers to saints, either do not acknowledge them unfortunately, or take the credit upon themselves, or worse still, blame the sages for granting them something other than what they had asked for, not realizing that what they had wished for, perhaps would have caused them harm and not benefit. Saints know what is best for us. It is best to be grateful and accept graciously all their blessings.
    Sri Guru Datta

  16. Hira Duvvuri

    I am convinced fully. I believe this statement that saints always bless and give us what is best for us. But, it is impossible to convince the egotists who test the saints’ powers and compassion by demanding that a child be born, or a life be saved, or a marriage take place, or a job be obtained, or a visa be granted. When their demand is not granted, they turn around and criticize the saint for either lacking spiritual power, or for fraudulent fame. God help such fools! What may give us immediate disappointment in our worldly life may in fact be a huge blessing to us in the long run! Only the saint who knows our past, present and future, and has our best interest at heart, would know that. We, in our ignorance treat this life and its fleeting satisfactions as real and ask for petty favors. When we pray instead, for a pure mind, pure devotion, and spiritual progress, the saints will certainly grant our wish. Perhaps not overnight, but step by step, and inch by inch. Jaya Guru Datta

  17. My Datta Sadguru, Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has given me many ways to approach Him through prayer. Bhajans, stotras, kavachas, music for meditation AND He has given Himself. Smartrgami Sanovatu. Just be thinking of Him, Sri Swamiji is here. He answers all my prayers. Sometimes it isn’t immediately, but it is always a joy to remember when one is answered. All things in their time. He continually preaches patience. He knows what this devotee needs always and provides same. Appaji, thank you for the beautiful music and form that is my Saint, Always. Jaya Guru Datta

  18. No one, Appaji. Association with great souls (Maha Purusha Saangatyam) always leads to one’s evolution (rather revolutionary evolution) to higher planes. The music in this video is taking me to some different loka’s, Appaji. Narasimha Swami picture is bringing tears to my eyes. To save His dear devotee, Sri Hari did not hesitate to take even a difficult form of half-human and half-lion. Jai Jai Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, I offer prayers at Your Lotus Feet. I do not yet have the knowledge to even know what it is I should pray for. Your love and protection? For better knowledge? For strength? You know what is right for me. I pray to You when I say or think “Om Namah Shivaya”. Sri Guru Datta

  20. Vindar Badall

    Jai Guru Datta.
    Thanks very much to Appaji. We are very lucky to have our Sadgurudeva in our life. Our Appaji is all saints and He blesses His devotees in many forms and ways. Jai Guru Datta.

  21. Jaya Guru Datta!
    Since i met Sri Swamiji, live started to be very special and wonderful. Full of wonders. All these are Sri Swamiji’s wonders. Sri Swamiji helps me to gain knowledge and to attain capabilities i would not have dreamt about.
    Koti pranams to Your Divine Lotus Feet, dear Sadgurudeva.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Narasimhaya Namah
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

  22. Mahesh Sevadal

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Appaji U r the Personification of all the Gods and U r the one who streamlines our thought process and Destroys Evil and protects Righteous ones. Chanting your Nama bestows us with all the merits. Bless us all with Righteous and Good thought[Sathsankalpa].

    JGD Appaji!
    Appaji has shown us the path and also given us various ways even inculcating latest technology to help us realize the path and achieve the goal,.We need to just follow that path with complete faith and surrender. He knows what we want and automatically we realize things are happening, work is being done..we need not even ask for anything..

  27. Maurice Clarke

    JGD. I am happy for yet another wonderful MMS. I thank You so much Swamiji. JGD

  28. Jai guru datta
    Yes everybody prays to a saint and they get everything in their life but, no body asked how to get near to god
    So bless all of us to reach god so praying to saints is always getting good boon
    Sri guru datta


    if a person sticks to their karma without much expectations, does he/she needs to worry about God even!


    I am unable to count Appaji’s help in my life. Every one will be successful after Praying…….. No No just have a Dharshan, Even if dharshan is difficult just clap your hands for His Bajan in your CD at your house the world will clap for you for your success in this birth. 100% true. Pranams Sadguru Deva Om Namo Hanumate Namaha Jaya Guru Datta .

  31. Gilla Lalitha

    JGD Appaji – I’m Lucky that the Appaji entered our life and I got good husband and my elder son took birth on Pradhana Anaghastami Day in 1998 which is also Thursday – Now our total family members are volunteers of Datta Peetham and we are proud of being that – SGD

  32. Sarumati

    No, I don`t think so.
    It`s a miracle. All celestial beings come for help, when you pray to them. And I`m so glad to be under
    Sri Swamiji`s shelter since 22 years … Strength, that is so important for success,
    has grown in me more and more and more … Thankfulness is what I feel to Sri Swamiji.
    Jay Guru Datta.

    What a wonderful MMS, Appaji has given and Puttuji your explanation for the same is so nice. For a student how a teacher takes the responsibility to build up his carrier, similarly for a person a Guru is required for his spiritual growth. Therefore Puttuji  you have reminded here the MMS 92 where in Appaji says( a Guru comes to a disciple when he is ready for spiritual growth.) Hence we should understand the greatness and value of a Sadguru. We are so fortunate to get Appaji as our Sadguru in this Kaliyuga who is the incarnation of Lord Datta Himself. Therefore He will test you in so many ways whether we are fit for a disciple for Him. Hence we should follow our Sadguru in all respects. According to my experience once you are in the grip of Appaji, He will protect us in the right time. Yesterday in London also Appaji has given a beautiful speech about namasankeertana ( Bhajan)  Appaji’s Bhajans all contained The Seed letter which is very powerful to cure disease. Therefore we follow You and practice Bhajan and seek Your blessing for this since we are always your student only.    JGD.


    Well Said Sri Rama. Guru Gita is just released but it seems you are soaked in that Gita. Good guidance for the new devotee to understand the Universal God who is moving among us. Pranams Sadguru Deva Om Namo Hanumate Namaha Jaya Guru Datta.

    Praying to Saints ~ 20 Sep 2012

    Namaste Puttuji, good video. Thank You. Has anyone remained without success after praying to saints? Never, with or without faith. Who trust, will be successful early, who do not trust, Guru will have to effort to raise faith in them and then guide. TV in a path is well shown in a video, our Sadguru is guiding us in our spiritual path through MMS videos also. Being God, Guru should do every ritual to be a role model to us praying Himself or doing Namasankeertan of His own self. That is what shown in the video ‘ Supreme bliss in the form of Lord Narasimha, and Appaji in earth immersed in devotion doing Namasankeertan of His own self. Namaste Puttuji.

    Praying to saints – 20/09/12

    Saints are the complete form of holiness who always aspire for upliftment of everyone. Blessings of saints are always there for all good deeds done by us. It is obvious that prayers to saints are blessed as success and to guide us in the right path. Thank You Puttuji for this superb message.

  42. svetha

    Wie oft haben wir es alle erlebt, dass wir DICH SWAMIJI bloss anrufen müssen und bereits ist DEINE Hilfe da! Noch nie habe ich erlebt, dass DU nicht antwortest.
    Ich danke DIR, mein SADGURU, für DEINE immer währende Hilfe.

  43. Jaya Guru Datta

    Very aptly said, after following in the path of Datta, HH pujya gurudeva is holding our finger and making us walk in the right path. when hurdles come, HH will make us realize and life us up from falling down so we will not fall into the same abyss again. Thank you Appaji for your compassion and love. One life is not enough to serve the lotus feet of our gurudeva.

    Sri Guru Datta
