    -One should think that he is the Brahman (Absolute) only with the initiation attained through Guru’s Grace. This is the path of Salvation. With this gradually shines the light of Self – knowledge.

    SGS gems:
    -With Guru’s grace even trees and mounds can obtain spiritual knowledge.
    -Guru’s Grace makes the impossible possible.
    -You may be ordinary. But your capacity becomes extraordinary with Guru’s Grace.

    Sri Swamiji was often recommending to study YOGAVASISTHA. It is said to be the crest Jewel of all works on Vedanta. “Musings on Yoga Vaasishta” written by Sri Kuppa Venkata Krishna Murthy, the Vidyaadhikari of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore. This Book is about Liberation. It is really mind boggling, this illusory world and that pure consciousness which is the witness of everything. To concentrate on “Who am I”?
    Sri Swamiji says in His Benediction foreword for this book, an excerpt:
    “Your Swamiji has been using him as His mouthpiece to serially analyse and explain this rare classic the way He wanted through the TV Channel for his devotees and the entire mankind at large. All of you should study this with a steady mind and sincerely render yourself deserving for the grace of Sri Datta – Your Swamiji”

    Thank you Puttuji for the beautiful MMS on the book ‘ Yoga Vaasishta’ when Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Award was bestowed upon the author .

    1, A lot of reassuring messages today. Along with

    – Firm belief in Sadguru removes sorrow, this message helps us understand that the mind and its creations are illusory.
    2. Sadguru and His Grace are worth coveting; nothing else ever is; Sadguru’s Grace is real; Everything else is unreal; Sadguru’s Grace grants everything; Nothing else has the ability to grant us anything;
    3. However, the mind creates illusions and desires. Controlling it is easier said than done. When uncontrolled, the mind torments us…and makes us feel powerless.
    4. The moment we begin realizing the presence of Sadgurudeva in our lives and that He is always there for us watching out – all sorrows begin to disappear and cease to exist.
    5. By constantly remembering the Guru and accruing His Grace, the mind can be kept ever subdued. The more the mind is exposed to the worldly, the more it will get afflicted by the unreal; So focusing inwards while reflecting on Sadguru is the only way out. This maya has the ability to keep us running forever without satisfaction despite all material fulfillment; With the Sadguru by our side, we already have everything we ever need to be happy.
    Sivaya Guruve Namaha!! Sri Guru Datta!! Om Namo Hanumate Namaha!!
