    9. 9th July : Spirituality is not external:

     By identifying the spirtuality hidden within each being, we create spirtuality around us!  When Sadguru is present in the lamp, the air around us , the beautiful flowers signifying nature, then Sadguru must also be present in the hustle bustle of a city and in the hearts of the people around us.. After all Sadguru has chosen that particular situation for us and accommodated us into that space with people of specific traits .. But in the end, if we realise that it is all the guru’s wish , we can only see Sadguru teaching us various lessons through the people around us.. Hence we can remain detached from them all and only cling on to the teachings we receive.. Isn’t it spirtuality all around then?

  1. Appaji thank you again and again for this beautiful MMS, they open my heart and i pray that YOUR wisdom will flow in it.
    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji: the focus thru the light; the divine music that touched and tuned the strings of our heart using the strings of Veena in the music was all-pervading. Your blessings in here made our lives blissful. You are our saviour Sri Appaji. Sri Guru Datta.

    Very wonderful, Appaji. These words are very encouraging. We can be where we are, and physically be involved with our own professions, and yet be spiritual. I guess, that is exactly how we are able to be with Saakshaath Datta Deva, even in these times of complete materialism, science & technology and chaos everywhere. Om Namo Narayanaya. Sri Guru Datta.

    Swamiji, I am thankful for the moment you have given me in the past when it came to me that the only constant in my life was the love of God. People come and go in our lives, places change, jobs change, houses change, even the landscape and weather change, but whenever we close our eyes, there you are, just as you were the day before and the day before that….Jaya Guru Datta!

    All roads lead to final destination that is GOD. I have learnt today that to move up spiritually I need to look IN and not OUT. All happiness , all knowledge , all solutions to problems are within ME – the ‘I’ which is free of attachment to this impermanent body and the semi permanent mind. But why am I not able to break free? Why I still hold on to these impermanence of life even after knowing the TRUTH? I realize I cannot break free without my GURU’s grace. How can I receive it? – by becoming worthy of receiving it through purification of body and mind, through seva , sadhana , satsang and sankeertana (the 4S) . I received His Grace in full measure last 2 days that will last a while before my past karmas will become stronger and weaken my will before my Guru will again shine His grace again by any means. Thank You Sadguru deva. There is no limit to your love and grace. Jaya Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Hanuman, This message tells that it is the internal transformation that counts and not external show…….As Swamiji says we should ask ourselves regularly whether we are transforming internally, can we love others, can we feel peace, are we able to control ourselves better etc…..Thank you Swamiji for reminding us through this amazing message…I am still trying to understand how to live ‘unattached’……All I know as of now is to hold on to your lotus feet, follow your teachings and live in the world……If i leave you then i will be washed away in this ocean of samsara…..Please give us the strength to lead an unattached life…Om namo hanumate namaha

    Mein geliebter SADGURU, wie DU DICH aus dem Kerzenlicht materialisierst, berührt mich sehr. Es zeigt mir auf, dass DU in allem drin bist, ich DICH überall wahrnehmen kann. Das gelingt mir besser, wenn ich in der Ruhe der Natur bin, nicht im hektischen Alltag einer Stadt. Ich will üben, frei zu werden von Bindungen, von Ablenkungen.
    OM GAM GANAPATAYE NAMAH

    Beautiful message about spirituality. It’s a myth that spirituality is possible with any social bonding and relations, but yes, it is detachment that is the most essential requirement. If one can still practise detachment leading a socially appreciable life and with all relations around one can still be on spiritual path only with God’s grace. May God bless us all with insight of our thoughts and behaviour, and to practise spirituality.
