    Mind is a flow of thoughts. Sankalpa dhara, vichara dhara, mana. When the water is pure, the river is pure. When the water is agitated, the river gets murky. When the thoughts are polluted, are agitated… so is the mind. How often have you forgotten where you kept your car keys ? For all you know the key was in your pocket. But you searched everywhere.That is how difficult things can get when the mind is agitated.

    Malicious thoughts.. envy, anger, hatred, jealousy, conceit, arrogance.. the list can go on.. are all impure thoughts. People who entertain such thoughts find it hard to listen to what others are saying. Like an angry teenager who ignores the food lovingly offered by her mother, an impure mind prevents the intellect from making decisions that are consistent to one’s sense of values. To such a body-mind-intellect equipment, even seemingly easy solutions appear very difficult.

    It also hurts the other way around.. No one wants to listen to people with impure thoughts.. because their intentions are malicious. Even if they propose an easy solution, they will have no takers. On the contrary, when your mind is pure, when your intentions are noble, even if you want a whole nation to standup and die for a cause, they will. That’s what Gandhiji made us do.

    With his pure mind firmly fixed on the Lord, Prahlada swallowed poison that he was given. He found such an impossible task very easy. But Hiranyakashipu did not recognize the divinity in Prahlada even when the poison failed. He found such an easy task very impossible. That is how badly his impure arrogant conceited mind had clouded his intellect.

    How to purify the mind ? What happens when you take a glass of water and keep on pouring milk into it ? Over a few minutes, isn’t the glass more of milk than of water ? Continue pouring milk, and then look for water in that glass.. where did the water go ? You did not pour the water out. You only poured the milk in. Likewise, every MMS, every bhajan, every word, every byte of music for healing and meditation.. flowing from our Sathguru is a mind purifier. We only have to open our minds and allow all of that divinity to flow in.

    Dear Gurudeva, You are our eternal purifier. Give us the willingness to open our minds and allow you to clean up the muck we have accumulated over several janmas. That is the only way we will recognize the ease and simplicity in what you are asking us to do.. That is the only way we will find more energy to be of service to your cause.. and eventually recognize the divinity in each one of us.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji.

    The possession of anything begins in the mind.When we set our eyes upon something , the mind immediately analyses it completely coming to a conclusion weather it would like to have it or not.. Whereas reality can possibly be that we can not even reach that object … But if the mind has the yearning for it ,we can get very close to possesing that object..  Mind can think upto unimaginable heights  at a matchless speed.. We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.  Happier the mind , better we think , hence solutions to all problems  come easily indeed !! 

  4. Annessa

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji.
    This is indeed an important reminder and lesson to us all. Many times we find ourselves producing impure thoughts, leading to an impure mind. This is truly an important lesson for us. Thank you for always sharing these lessons with us as we all aim to be on the path to righteousness .

  5. dariashakti

    Jaya Guru Datta, Appaji, This message this morning seems so connected to the Atma Katha lessons you are giving us. You were mentioning how akash is site of the akashic records. But unless we quiet and purify our minds and still them using all the tools you have given us like bhajans, mantras, Datta Kriya Yoga, and Your meditation and healing music, how can we access that beautiful knowledge where all solutions exist and experience the divine light shining within? Every morning I await these teachings….it is such a joy to share this time and these direct lessons with You and all the other devotees! Jaya Guru Datta!

  6. Jai Guru Datta Pujya Puttuji

    With your explanations only I could understand the inner meaning !! Sri Guru Datta

  7. Shruthi Jagadish

    Sri Swamiji is very nicely teaching us to keep our mind uncluttered, clean but filled with good thoughts. With Appaji making His speeches and Sri Bala Swamiji’s Ramayana pravachana available over Yoga Sangeetha, He is paving way for us to fill our minds with a daily dose of good positive thoughts! Lets us all make the best use of this great opportunity and gain from it. We are forever grateful to you for this Appaji. The video, though very simple, puts forth the message very well. Thank you Appaji. Jaya Guru Datta

  8. Gowrishankar Jaya raman

    Thank you for the ‘Profound’ advice Appaji. Jaya Guru Datta

  9. Savitri

    I know, there is always a solution for a problem, I know also, that Swamiji Himself give me solutions, I must only hear in my inner. But sometimes it is difficult to hear the solution, because there are a lot of emotions, a lot of doubts to obtain the aim. Then I must look for a deeper silence in me. But it is not so easy. At the end, when I have found a solution, I think always: why these doubts? Everytime I make the experience that at the end there is a solution for my problem and all is good. I must really look for a pure mind!

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Listening to Shatashloki Ramayana, I find peace at least for those few minuits. Thank you Appaji for giving us so many opportunities to clean our mind. Sri Guru Datta

    జయ గురు దత్త
    సద్గురుదేవుల సందేశం అద్భుతంగా ఉంది. సమస్యలు లేని మనుష్యులున్నారా? అందరికీ సమస్యలు ఎదురౌతాయి. కాని పరిష్కారాలు అందరికీ దొరకవు. సద్గురుదేవులు సర్వతోముఖంగా ప్రపంచవ్యాప్తంగా ఎన్నో ప్రణాళికలను ప్రారంభిస్తారు, విజయవంతంగా ముగిస్తారు. ఒక్కరిచేత ఇన్ని పెద్ద కార్యక్రమాలు ఎలా సాధ్యమౌతున్నాయి? వారికి సమస్యలే లేవా? ఎందుకు లేవు? ఎన్నో మహాపెద్ద సమస్యలే వారు ఎదుర్కొంటున్నారు. కాని పెద్ద సమస్యలు కూడా సునాయాసంగా పరిష్కారమైపోతున్నాయి. గమనించి చూస్తే, వారి పవిత్రమైన మనస్సే ఆ సులభమైన పరిష్కారాలను ప్రసాదిస్తోందని మనకు తెలుస్తుంది.
    ఏ సమస్య ఎదురైనా, కలత చెందకుండా, కోపానికి లొంగకుండా, ఎవరినీ తప్పు పట్టకుండా, శాంతిగా, యుక్తిగా, ప్రేమగా సమస్యలను దాటగలుగుతున్నారు సద్గురుదేవులు. ఇది అందరూ నేర్చుకోవలసిన ముఖ్యమైన అంశం. నిరుత్సాహం, ద్వేషం, కోపం అనేవి అణుమాత్రమైనా లేని వారి మనస్సులో భగవంతుని ప్రతిబింబం మనకు తప్పక స్పష్టంగా కనిపిస్తుంది. ఆ భగవంతుడే సమస్యా పరిష్కారాలను వెంటవెంటనే వారికి అనుగ్రహిస్తున్నారు. మనందరికీ కూడా అటువంటి శుద్ధమైన మనస్సులను ప్రసాదించమని సద్గురుదేవులను వేడుకుందాం. శ్రీ గురు దత్త

    Sadgurudeva,s every action and message is a mind purifier”this word give a clear strength and understanding to the seeker that to keep the mind clean. the most wanted message from this video does lots of benefits. Pranams to Pujya Sadgurudeva.

  19. Jaya Guru Datta
    Thank you for the daily HD quality MMS video messages, these MMS videos have become daily energy capsules for us.
    Marvelous explanation by Puttuji. Being in association with Pujya Guru Deva and listening to HH music daily without even knowing we gets purified overtime. If i look at my lifestyle 10 years ago and now, there is no comparison. When we totally surrender to HH holy feet and follow His words automatically we can notice purity in our thoughts.

  21. Joseph

    Mind is the seat for innumerable thoughts leading to various desires. Desires are seat for happiness and unhappiness. Mind free of malicious thoughts is possible only with grace of God, to lead a happy life with peace of mind.

    JGD. We are formed and moulded by thoughts. Minds shaped by selfless thoughts would give joy when we speak and act. This conclusion could only be arrived at due to the most excellent explanation of Sri Puttuji. I offer my namaskaram and remain awed at your brilliance. Thank you Appaji, Sri Guru Datta

    J.G.D. – from the bottom of my heart I want to be capable to take a few minutes every day only for you Puttuji. No matter how busy I am – Swamiji should always be first priority. I have no doubt that listening to Swamiji’s music and praying will help always to clear the mind. A clear mind will help not only me – also the people I live and work with.

  28. pushpa

    with pure mind we always will have sattvic solutions and thank You Appaji that we can reach pure mind by listening to Your so many given ways. Prostrations to Your Lotufeet.

  29. Mahesh Sevadal

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Minds carrying the traces of Poorva Samskaras delving in unworthy and Negative thougts can attain Purity only with the Divine blessings of Appaji , with Sadguru’s blessings our minds can become receptive to his vibrations and help us participate in his Divine Maha Sankalpa. I Wish Sadguru destroys our impurities, like Mighty Sun destroying darkness and mist, and opens up our minds like Lotuses and Lits the Light of Wisdom.

    Sri Guru Datta.

  30. Jaya Guru Datta!
    Since i know Sri Swamiji my life is like a very fast going teaching course. Every experience teaches me something. It sometimes seems to me that in everybody around me sits Sri Swamiji bringing me into situations where i can learn something. Sometimes i must struggle really hard. On other occasions He is just organizing everything nicely. So the life itself appears like a constant conversation with Him.

    Jai Guru Datta Swamiji! Om Vijaya Ganapataye Namah!
    Thank You for this musical message! The Ganapati idol and mantra reminds me that You are
    always assisting and removing the obstacles to free us from “impure thoughts”.
    As Puttuji states, “You are our eternal purifier.”
    Thank You for the purification and for providing all the blessings through Your many “healing
    methods.” With Love, Vishali

  32. Sowjanya

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji, thank you This is a very good message and we will remember to follow in our daily life. Only pure mind can think in a pure way. Dear lord Dattatreya please bless us to follow right way with pure thoughts always and please correct our mistakes.
    Thank you Puttuji for the wonderful explanation.

  33. Hema

    Purity of mind must be our top priority. All of these messages are geared to purify our minds so we can eventually realize god. Appaji has also given some practical tips. He has asked that our bodies and clothing be always clean. Also our surroundings, especially the place for praying. One should try to eat satvic food without garlic and onions. Also we should surrender bad habits to Sadguru.

  34. Om Vijaya Ganapatayee Namaha
    Om Vishnavee Namaha

    Simple and clean thinking mind helps to lead a peaceful life, which brings inner calmness and that shows up in the way our behavior.

    Pranams to the Lotus feet of Sri Swamiji

  35. Sadashiva

    Dear Swamiji, dear Puttuji,

    It is so true, the explanation you give about the pure/impure mind. It happens to me, and here it is again brought to the attention.

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Sadashiva

  36. Jaya Guru Hanuman,

    The message started showing us a beautiful Vijaya Ganapathi and ended with ‘Om Vishnave Namaha’. It is as if saying that Vijaya or success always goes after Vishnu. Vishnu has taken many avataras at different times only to establish dharma. Vishnu always does good to others and by doing so Lakshmi (success) is always serving his feet. Success always chases one who is pure at heart and always does good to others. This is the symbolic meaning of images where we see Lord Vishnu sleeping and Lakshmi at the feet of Lord Vishnu. (Here Vishnu does not represent a male form and Lakshmi female form. It is an idea that is being conveyed and forms are only modes of communication.)

    We should all try and be like Vishnu’s. How much we follow dharma in our life is proportional to our purity of mind. The more we lead a dharmic life the purer our mind will be. Our sadguru has already laid the path for us. All we have to do is thread on it. Let us all follow the path laid down by our master, understand his teachings, do Guru Seva and become pure to receive Datta mitai.

    Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Sri Swamiji who is Vishnu

    Om namo hanumate namaha

    JGD. Very nice MMS! I pray to SadGuru Deva to help us to keep our thoughts pure all the time!Thank you Sri Swamiji for taking time to enlighten us each day. SGD

  43. vasanti

    Jaya Guru Datta, Appaji,
    I pray for a pure mind and whatever God wills for solution.

  44. Archana Penukonda

    Jaya Guru Datta! The mind is really capable of a lot, provided it’s used in the right manner. The mind can travel to the past or future or live in the present or, as is usually the case, do varying combinations of the above. All attachments, emotions and feelings originate in the mind. The mind creates this illusion that we live in every day. All the problems we face are a doing of our mind. Keeping the mind pure and simple without all the agitations and distractions will thus improve our performance in our spiritual sadhana as well as in our daily tasks by giving us the single-minded purposefulness.
    A pure mind that has no distractions or agitations will perform better. A mind focused on Guru Tattva and Guru Paada will greatly help the purification process. Thank You for all the various ways, Appaji you help us clean our mind and make progress in our pursuits. Thank You for today’s lesson, Puttuji! Obesiances to the Holy Lotus Feet of Pujya Sri Swamiji!

  49. Sundaram Sambamoorthy

    Jaya Guru Datta. Ones pure mind only entertains pure and noble thoughts. When the mind is crystal clear without any confusions, we attain solutions that are more comprehensible and are able to readily assimilate to perform our actions. Listening to Vishnu Sahasranamam with a pure mind at the instance of Swamiji has enabled me to think clearly and attain positive solutions. Pranams to the Lotus feet of Swamiji to have inculcated in me this noble thought.

    Jaya Guru Datta Puttuji !!!! Thanks for the Wonderful Message !!! OM NAMO HANUMATE NAMAH !!!!! Sree Guru Datta !!!!

  55. Jai Guru Datta. The importance of cleaning up our mind has been stressed by Pujya Appaji in so many contexts. And, all the activities of His Holiness are essentially geared towards clearing our prarabhdha/sanchita karma (acquired from impure mind from past and present lives), and also moulding our mind so that it stays clean, and thinks and does the right things. Gurudeva has put it in simple terms (as He always does) that the “solution” is here once the mind is cleaned. The essence of all vedas, all sastras is ESSENTIALLY translated into simple sooktis in these MMS messages from Pujya Appaji. No difficult words, no difficult phrases, but simple English that we call can understand (including children) and start following. Shata Koti Pranams to Appaji’s Lotus Feet. Sri Guru Datta.

  56. Vidya Sagar Reddy

    JGD Appaji
    As Appaji says if a glass is full it cannot be filled with anything else…similarly if our heart is filled with our inner enemies how can Appaji fill it,, there is no space left for the divine. We need to empty our vessels, make ourselves pure and with Appaji’s grace our hearts will be completely filled with Him..
    We cannot be of wavering minds like the flying grass seeds or the falling leaves that get carried way by the wind, ..we need to be firmly rooted in Appaji and listen to His music, then like the river Ganga He can purify us..Once mind is pure, no need to think, we can clearly listen to Him inside us for solutions! .
