  1. A plant has no choice but to grow, when it receives water, sunlight & air, irrespective of whether it is rooted in the Grand Canyon, or in the lush landscape of Mekedatu
    A river has no choice but to flow towards the ocean.
    Elements in Nature have no choice, but to follow their Master’s command. They are happy doing so.
    Humans have the freedom to follow or ignore the command from their Guru – One who dispels ignorance. In that freedom to choose, is the cause of all misery for mankind. For, to know and not to do, is as good as not knowing at all. If one doesn’t open his eyes to the shining (velegindi) light (jyoti) all around, he is as good as blind.
    Pranams Sathguru!
    It is a blessing that you’ve chosen us to be in your command. We will follow you, growing & flowing towards our potential like those plants & rivers do. We realize learning happens only when there is a desired change in behaviour. So, we follow you, Master.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    No one in our lives is as unselfishly interested in our welfare as is our beloved Guru! We are very fortunate. Think about it, you have someone in your life who truly knows what is best for you. You may not see it in the moment it is revealed, but with trust and time, even when the path He directs seems lonely or difficult, in the end, it will bring the greatest rewards. Trust, trust, trust always in the Guru’s directives! Sri Guru Datta!

    Jaya guru datta! Guru is a Friend, Philosopher, guide, teacher ,doctor…There is no one above to the Sadguru.A Guru by his wisdom sets the pace and the path of the disciple and keeps him going towards his goal .Guru by His messages and advices, enriches His disciple and shatters the ignorance ,darkness and problems whatever they are ,that may come to His disciple .The Guru knows the past ,present and the future of not only his devotee but also of the world .Every body in the world have problems but only a few will have the Sadguru.We are fortunate to be a part of Sri Swamiji’s family .He perfectly knows how to mould our life .What else to say, Sri Swamiji is omnipotent ,omnipresent and can take any form, at any time, at any place to save us from distress. Let us follow our Sadguru faithfully .

    Jaya Guru Datta. There is no second thought. I will follow the Master. A million humble prostrations and infinite gratitude to the divine lotus feet of Mother Swamiji. I am so fortunate to have your blessings and instructions. That is what gives me such joy. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jai Guru Datta,
    a Guru´s command is a command of the highest order. To ignore it would mean one isn´t willing to trust in the highest principle and there ´s a lot of work to be done on the ego. Forgive me Datta, if I failed.
    Sri Guru Datta

  2. Jai Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOOTA
    Yes APPAJI I will follow YOU and try to do it without any thought.
    Sri Guru Datta & Namaskar to my SADGURU
    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    • Madhavi on February 2, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    Sadguru knows everything. He wants only the best for each of us. Any thought about His divine command is an arrogant one. So, let’s follow Him without second thought and in humble devotion. Dear Appaji, dear Master, I will follow Your commands in that way.

    Jaya Guru Datta

    What an incredible blessing to receive commands of Sri Swamiji! He has the knowledge and truth of the whole universe. What a bliss that we can follow Him!

    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

    This is the only mantra we will need to realize the goal of this birth. That is the essence of Guru Gita. Every word uttered by the Guru is a mantra for us. When Prahalada or Dhruva were instructed by sage Narada to pray to Lord Vishnu, the kids did not question the sage’s advice. They didn’t resign to the fact that they were still little children and too young for penance. They just did as the Guru instructed.
    We are lucky to have a Sathguru who teaches us everything we need to know about life, everything we need to know about every decision we need to make. When we commit to following His command, He will answer all questions and remove all doubts. Our Sathguru is really our inner self, our inner strength, our prayer, the power of truth, the divine love, walking together in a human body. May we never desire anything but to always follow the Guru’s command, no matter what. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Jaya Guru Datta. This is one of the most critical mandates of the Guru. Regretfully, there are many who question the Guru and try to “correct” or “advise” Him, usually for their selfish purpose. May we learn to be obedient and humbly serve our beloved Sadguru, which may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    In MMS 247, Appaji is saying about ( Self surrender alone is the mark of true devotion) . Now according to me if follow the above strictly, naturally, as a true devotee will definitly obey His command, what ever it may be with out a second thought. Now here Appaji is once again reminding us about the importance of this concept. In this kaiyuga for us Appaji is being the incarnation of Lord Datta Himself, He will always test us in several ways to know our real devotion and also observe whether we follow his words and teachings in the spiritual path. In such condition when ever Appaji command anything to do, our duty is simply to obey and as a true devotee, we have no right to decide whether it is important or not. Incidentally here I want to say one of my first experiences in 1982 , when Appaji visited Cochin . During those days there is no Ashram at Cochin and thereby Appaji was used to stay in my house as well as in another devotee house. This was the practice up to 1991 , till the Ashrama was established at Cochin. Accordingly in 1982 when He visited here, Appaji asked me suddenly to bring one T V to see on that night. During those days TV was not very popular and some how or other I brought one piece and placed in the room where He was resting. The next day Appaji asked me to take the same. On that day Appaji was saying about this and told me that , I have crossed the First step. From this we should learn what ever Appaji says , outer duty is to follow if we are a true devotee. According to me till our life we will be under his test and observation .These are all for our benefit only which we should realise. The photography and the Bhajan played in Harmonium by our late Arogyaswami ( Joythi velagindi ) are very apt for the MSG. JGD.

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. Yes, Guru’s command – it is not even to be thought for a blink of an eye. Thats what Appaji is showing us in practical. He is showing and leading us from the front to accept, understand and continue to be good human beings in this world. Thanks a lot Appaji.

    JGD. May we follow all the commands You give, Dearest Sadguru. JGD.

    • Vanaja on February 3, 2013 at 9:37 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    todays mms: “..In that freedom to choose, is the cause of all misery for mankind..”, it touches me to comprehend this.
    Dear Swamiji, let me be like butter in YOUR hands. May I become like a gopi in Vrindavan. Seeing and hearing Krishna everywhere. And always following Krishna without a second thought!
    Pranams to my beloved Sadguru.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • sridevi on February 3, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Jai Guru Datta! “Without a second thought” seems as beautiful as difficult to me. It needs such a purity of mind which i am longing for. In the meantime there is always the possibility not to listen to the thoughts… Grateful pranams to Sadgurudeva’s divine feet

    • Dr S J Saikumar on February 3, 2013 at 11:18 am

    We are all ears for your command Appaji. Stunning visuals and melodious rendering of Jyothi Velaginthi on the Harmonium.

    • Kambhoji on February 3, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    In the fist time I had no clue,
    once argued with You – this is true!
    We had to suffer all alone,
    how hard it was You must have known…
    This was the only time I did,
    no more strange things to come up with!
    And what You say I gratefully do,
    go day by day THE WAY WITH YOU!

    Thank You so much Appaji!

    • svetha on February 3, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, yesterday we learnt about self-surrender and devotion. And today YOU give us a code of practice: Fallow the Master! No second thought!
    It sounds so simply, but for me it is a big challenge. I will fallow YOU, my MASTER!
    Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for this clarity.
    Koti Pranams to YOUR Lotosfeet

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on February 3, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    JGD Appaji
    You are our Guru,. noone is closer to us than You. Noone can be as patient, compassionate and loving. We listen to you, we know You are giving us instructions only for our benefit. We need to become more stable and determined in following them to absolute perfection. We will stabilize our minds, kill our inner enemies and make our hearts and minds empty..so that they can be filled with only Your thoughts and instructions.

    • dr.kodanda ram reddy on February 4, 2013 at 11:02 am

    jayagurudatta puttuji, sashtangapranams at lotus feet of poojya swamiji, this is very very important divine
    message to us, we see so many times poojya swamiji gives different commands to different devotees in
    different circumstances, we must follow it with out doubt, it is for us only, if anybody gets doubt in sadguru’s command he will not suceed in life, i pray once again and again at lotus feet of poojya swamiji
    with humble pranams who is protecting every moment, om namo hanumathenamhaa

    • on February 4, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Dear Appaji, please continue supporting foolish me in following Your lessons 100% because so far, again and again, I fail due to my ego and laziness. Please also bless me that I don’t get confused by commands to other people which are contradictory to those You gave me. Sri Guru Datta!
