  1. {Enchanting “Narayana Narayana” Album : Namarchana Malayalam} {Real- That which is changeless. Sampath– Wealth, Prosperity}
    Real sampath accrues when a healthy mind expresses itself through a healthy body
    That’s possibly why the Gopikas of Brindavan cherished being with Krishna. In His company they found their ecstasy.. a priceless feeling that keeps our bodies & minds in good shape
    Just before the war, Krishna gave the Pandavas & Kauravas an opportunity to choose between Him & His army. Arjuna chose Krishna, even though Krishna wouldn’t fight in the battlefield. Duryodhana chose Krishna’s army. The consequences illustrate the unmatched power of associating with noble souls
    Koti pranams Sathguru!
    You’re the noble soul, the shining sun, enlightening us by your sheer presence. We’re blessed to be in your unlimited company, that drives us to rise above our limited ego towards our infinite potential. You’re our real wealth! Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta, Thank You Swamiji for showing us/teaching us that our association and contact with you is more valuable to us/our souls than anything else. Sri Guru Datta.

    I am a very lucky woman: soon I will be for three weeks in the ashram, near from my dear Guru. Is there something better on this world? NO, NOTHING!

    • Vanaja on January 13, 2013 at 11:28 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    I do remember Swamiji said: “… we want to go up – up, not down”. We want to develop the right way. Having association and spending time with noble souls helps us this way. I am grateful for the few very good souls in my life and their friendship. May Lord Dattatreya be always with them and protect them.
    Pranams to my beloved Sadguru.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Human mind is by nature unsteady, turbulent, strong and obstinate and therefore difficult to control. Such a mind is always extrovert. With such an outgoing mind, man cannot think of God. To train such a mind and make it turn towards God many means are described in our scriptures. One such effective means available to us is satsang. Satsang literally means to seek the company of the Truth. Sadguru or God is the only Truth that exists. Such Truth is eternal, priceless, timeless and supporter of perceived universe. Hence being associated with Sadguru or God is to be considered as real and greatest wealth.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Narayanaya Namah
    Each lesson from Sri Swamiji like this Musical Message Saying is of inestimable value. It guides our life to the right path. Only with the Divine lessons we can find the way to Divine bliss and understanding of the world we live in. Sri Swamiji knows for everybody of us the best time for the right message. Sometimes it comes in a dream, or we read it through facebook or listen to a special bhajan. He brings us happiness, beautiful music and deep understanding.
    Pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Ravaye Namah

    Jaya Guru Datta! Just this morning I was talking about a time in my life when I was given an opportunity to take a path that would have taken me away from Sri Swamiji, instead I made the choice to stay even though the other path was very tempting. This is a choice I have never regretted. Swamiji brings us all to many crossroads in our association with Him. Each time we choose Him He seems to draw closer. We have so many tests, but no matter how hard, we should always still continue our association with Him!

    • Manu on January 13, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    Jai Guru Datta,
    what makes a soul noble? The joy and the love for god in the heart and a selfless attitude towards life. What a blessing to be with such people, their simple presence lights up everything. What a great gift to be with beings like Sri Swamiji who is the noblest soul. Blessed are we, indeed.
    Sri Guru Datta.

    • Venkat on January 13, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. Wonderful music and visual. A very pleasant MMS. Again, this reminds me of hte story Appaji narrated – that of Narada explaining the virtues of satsanga – the association of noble souls. It is also an adage that defines the way people are, by the association they keep. We have Your Holiness in our lives, completely and that is the greatest Satsanga… Thanks Appaji.

    • on January 13, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Dear Appaji, thank you so much for the datta family – all theese wonderful souls. The datta devotees give me big support in my life, … to know that they are there, also love Swamiji and we have the same goal. This gives so much strength and motivation to go through samsara.
    You´ve collected everyone of us and brought us together – what a joy! Thank you again and again. JGD Rajeshi

    • lilashah on January 13, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. I pray to keep this association with Sri Swamiji and to take full advantage of all of Sri Swamiji’s gifts. I also pray for satsang so that I only associate with those who love and follow Sri Swamiji in any of His many forms. Sri Guru Datta.

    • Sahadeva on January 13, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Jay Guru Datta

    God is the only true wealth in one’s life. Thank you, Lord, for everything.

    • Dr S J Saikumar on January 13, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    My all time favorite malayalam bhajan. Our strength has been our association with Appaji, Bala Swamiji, Avadhootha Datta Peetham and all Datta devotees. This is the best satsang one can get in life.

    • on January 13, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Jai guru Datta

    JGD Appaji
    The only wealth in my life is Appaji.. that is the only wealth that is transferable throughout our janmas nothing else accompanies us.. Thank You Appaji for such a priceless treasure!

    • on January 13, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    What a beautiful MMS, Appaji has given on a happy Bogi Day. Normally people on this day, keep everything clean in their house and surroundings. Similarly Appaji wants to keep our mind clean and healthy , sothat we will have a perfect health also. The photography is so nice wherein we see Krishna as a child, and that drive my mind to the famous temple at Guruvayuor in Kerala . Accordingly Appaji has also given the MSG and bhajan in Malayalam language. Puttuji, you have also given a nice explanation about Krishna with Pandavas and Kouravas. From this we can realize if you have a company with good people or souls, you are sure about the success in your life. In otherwords if you are in such company, you follow a Dharmic path also which lead to permanent happiness—MMS12. Here I also remember Appaji’s words saying that, you must always have an association with good people and develop your sathsang and that will be only permanent and gives happiness in this kaiyuga .Naturally that will help us to follow the spiritual path also. Therefore Appaji we are so fortunate to get you as our Sadguru and in your company, we are very safe and through your teachings, we can develop a clean and healthy mind which will help us to have a perfect health. That is what we need ultimately . JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta, Pranam Sadgurudev, you indeed are our true wealth.

    • on January 14, 2013 at 3:48 am

    Jaya Guru Datta! Dear Appaji, thank You for teaching me not to strive for money / material wealth (in an inadequate manner) anymore. You have dissolved my former ideas of what my goals in life should me. Instead, You have directed me towards God and the divine. Only through You, I am attempting to live a spiritual life more and more. I’m for ever indebted to You for Your grace. And indeed, we devotees are super-rich to be with You! May humanity incorporate that true richness is not defined by the bank balance. Sri Guru Datta!

    Jai Guru Datta and Happy Bhogi Appaji _/\_/\_!! Jai Guru Datta and Happy Bhogi Puttuji_/\_/\_!!

    Beautiful MMS on auspicious Sankranthi !! Hearing the Divine Narayana Narayana enchanting music, we close our eyes, our ego gets burnt on Bhogi and we slowly dance like the branches of the coconut trees, the musician and the dancer and identify our real wealth, Appaji.Jai Guru Datta and Happy Birthday to Pujya Sri Bala Swamiji !!

    By constant association with noble souls evil thoughts and bad habits vanish and the mind becomes stable and everything good ensues.

    Pujya Sri Swamiji, God Word III

    In close association with the Guru, your ego will get hurt from time to time. You will find it very difficult.Only such devotees who are prepared to sacrifice their ego, will be able to stay with the Guru and their redemption is sure. It is like a bank. It keeps your merits in the fixed deposit and yields interest.

    I remember this story by Appaji (kind courtesy: Auntiji)

    One ascetic had a disciple who came to him daily and would run away before the speech. The Guru told him to stay, listen and go. But he would say, my wife and family members are waiting and go away.The guru said take this Tulasi leaf. Go home, eat it and go to sleep. He did and he died at once.
    The guru went to the man who died and asked why he died. NO answer. He told the family members, “You are all crying. If one amongst you is willing to give up your life, I will bring this man back to life.” All simply ran away.The man who had eaten the Tulasi leaf was listening and the Guru told him to get up. The man at once Said “Guru,I will leave them this minute. Please rescue me from these selfish,unloving people.”

    Humbly praying for Appaji’s blessings on this Happy Sankranthi to attain the Real Wealth.

    kalatram,dhanam putra pautradi sarvam grham bandhava sarva metaddhijatam
    Guroranghripadme manascennalagnam Tatah kim Tatah kim Tatah kim Tatah kim !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !

    of poojya swamiji,s association how much we are benefitting,we are so lucky to associate at lotus feet of avadhootha , om namo hanumathenamhaa

    • Joseph on January 16, 2013 at 1:23 am

    Association plays a vital role on our thoughts, if its good it results good thoughts and if association is bad it’s obvious that thoughts will be in wrong direction. Human has duality in his mind, depending on the association the predominance of the nature either good or bad depending on association. One should always be aware of their companionship for its effects on our thoughts and action. Surely, association of noble souls is real wealth indeed. May Lord bless us all with association of noble souls.

    • madhu talwar on January 18, 2013 at 10:12 am

    jgd Parmaatmaa thank You so much for bestowing me with Your’s and Your Holy Scriptures’s association, may i too make the best use of Your help and cross over the ocean of life and death, may i always be in the blissful thoughts of experiences You have given me pranaams Satguru Datta sgd onhn

    • Ramarao Chengalvala on January 20, 2013 at 6:30 am

    One of the earlier MMS says “ego is the worst kind of evil and association with the pious eliminates that” and today’s MMS once again reiterates that. When we intimately with the eminent and distinguished persons, baser thoughts and instincts will be purged from our hearts which then automatically open to the inflow of God’s grace. We are really blessed Swamiji. We are in association with You always, both in person and in thoughts.That puts a check on our thoughts and transforms us into good citizens.JGD.

    • svetha on February 2, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Beloved SADGURU, how rich and wealthy we are! YOU give us such possibilities to be with YOU, to hear YOUR Divine music, to read YOUR sayings.
    Heartily I thank YOU for all this.
    Koti pranams

    • Archana Penukonda on March 17, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Yes, Puttuji, Arjuna’s choice illustrates that association with noble souls is the real wealth. I know that the nature of my happiness has changed due to Swamiji. I was usually a happy kid growing up, but now my happiness seems more real and it seems more unbreakable. I can see that it’s not the millions of dollars or plush houses or fancy cars that will give me lasting happiness, but this happiness that the Sathguru is teaching us. Association with noble souls keeps us honest and it’s this association that leads to peace of mind and contentment regardless of the nature of externalities or adversities. Association with Sri Swamiji is all that is needed in the journey of this soul. With Sri Swamiji’s grace, may the mind slowly start seeking nothing but this association. Pranams at the Holy Lotus Feet!
