  1. Guided by its river bed, the Ganges fulfils its dharma, flowing to its ocean. On the way, as its terrain changes, it adapts.. turns, rolls, falls, floods, gets murky, gets frothy, accepts & takes along whatever it is offered. The journey isn’t always comfortable. Does it change its river bed? Ever?
    Man changes.. his beard, hair, tattoo, job, car, house, spouse.. because he thinks if he changes his externals, his life will get better. He is even exploring getting to another planet!
    Everything and everyone around man is a utility, that he wants use & change, including his religion and his Guru!
    Changing his outside, man may be well financially. But his wellness has deteriorated like never before. How stupid!
    Koti thankful pranams Sathguru, for this clarion call!
    We your children are learning to change our insides & adapt like the Ganges, as we follow your guidance to our fulfilment.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jgd.This MMS is a slap in the face of detractors of faith and promotors of religious differences.Religion and God donot matter as the most important thing is Belief in some thing that is above our self and limitation of our Imagination.God appers after a sincere PRAYER to anyone.
    Appaji frequently says that” I am not here to change your faith or belief, I am Here to change your belief that GOD is not there.GOD has not changed His name, it is frequenly changed by Humans to suit their purpose.When there is purpose God appears in different Forms, and the people who have faith in that form, or who are following His exploits in that form gave Him a name.God appears even to-day in many forms.We fail to recognise Him those who Find Him are in a such bliss that they cannot tell his form and address.The only way left is Individual prayer with patientce and preservence.
    The change of GURU and Religion is not the answer.

    Jaya Guru Datta. I don’t know what my religion is other than to love Mother Swamiji and try to see Him in all and serve all as Him. I fail a million times but still this is the only religion that I see. I will never leave you Swamiji. I could never. Please pull me closer. Happy Easter. Sri Guru Datta.

    We have such a tiny amount of time while on this planet with Appaji- i pray that all my Datta family makes the absolute best use of their time here because we have so much to do and there are so many creatures who need love and help. JGD

    To get in contact with Sri Swamiji is the most wonderful blessing we can get on this earth. It is more worth and greater than anything else. He gives us everything we need. He is caring for us like the most wonderful mother and father. It is simply so great to get insight in so many details of life through Sri Swamiji. It gives us such a great understanding – also for our grief and joy. He makes us see the world with different eyes. He gives us knowledge through His speeches and wonderful MMS, and He gives us experiences throughout the day and in our dreams. He is always with us and caring for us. There is nothing which can be thought as to be separated from Him.
    Thank YOU so much to be here with us! Pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta. Changing religions is a waste of time and when someone firmly believes in a way of life, there is no point changing that direction as the religion will guide that person to realization. Trying to change Gurus is not only a time-waste but a great sin as well. This is narrated in the divine Life History of Appaji via an anecdotal episode. We have to realize that all the ways/means may be different but the goal/objective is the same. Sri Guru Datta

    • on March 31, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, Appaji. Thank you for the message.
    Human birth is rare!
    After being born as human, getting to a Sadguru is very very very rare.
    And, after getting to a Sadguru, if we waste time, changing Gurus, it will be a life wasted. A maha bhaagya thrown away b our own utter foolishness.
    You are everything for us! Koti Pranams to Your Lotus Feet.
    Sri Guru Datta

  4. Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. Thank you for this wonderful message .
    A musician will never reach his or her goal of perfection by constantly changing musical instruments or teachers. Similarly we humans will forever be wandering lost on the spiritual path if we change religions or Gurus.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta & Happy Easter Appaji !!

    Pujya Sri Swamiji, Thank you for finding us. We are clinging to Your Holy Feet . You are our mother. How can a child go anywhere but to its mother? You are the captain of our ship and we are deeply grateful to be able to cross the samsaric ocean with you..

    Sri Swamiji says “I have given the Key”. SRI SWAMIJI IS THAT KEY. (Don’t forget)
    Datta gave Himself, hence He is called ” DATTA'”.

    Sri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama !! Sri Suryanarayana Parabrahmane Namo Namah !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!

    Jgd Appaji, since you have found me your preachings and teachings are most precious in my life. I pray that you are always my Guru. My pranams and prostrations to you again and again. Sgd

    • Hema on March 31, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    How could I ever think of changing Gurus?
    He is my one and only. All the hard lessons have made me a better person and brought me closer to His divine lotus feet. I trust in my Sadgurudeva utterly and completely. No one is greater than my Appaji! HE is God, may I never let go those feet!

    Jai Guru Datta, Swami ji we are your children. We will adapt and follow your teachings. Please always keep us with you. Pranam Sadguru

    • G.Lalitha on April 1, 2013 at 4:33 am

    JGD Appaji – Puttuji, thank you for this message as this is usual in these days as people are running for immediate happiness and not looking for life long happiness – We are blessed to have Appaji as our Guru and we want this to be continued in all our lives and serve Appaji as much as we can – SGD

    • on April 1, 2013 at 4:33 am

    According to me today , Appaji has given a good lesson as wellas a warning also through this MMS. Puttuji you have given a nice explanation about river Ganges , how it keeps Dharma, even though on the way to reach the ocean, facing lot of obstacles and disturbances . But the Ganges is not bothered about such things and it’s aim is to flow in to the ocean only. Similarly Appaji is giving us a warning here that , we have to keep only in our life time one Guru and religion. This is because in this Kaliyuga people are interested in worldly pleasures and unwanted desires and thereby our mind will always think about material benefit only. Naturally due to our karma if anything goes wrong immediately , we think about searching for another Guru. This is just like ( Rolling Stone Gathers no moss) . As per this if we do like that we will not get any knowledge in the spiritual path. At the same time a Guru is required in our life to guide us through the right path , to come out from darkness to light also. As humanbeing , we have to face both good and bad karmas in our life. At the same time during our bad period our Guru will protect us and not only that the impact of the karma will be reduced. Therefore Appaji we got your concept and we always follow you and stick on our religion also till our life in this janma. The music on keyboard in raga karaharapriya—-Ramam , Ramam is also apt to this MSG since Lord Rama was following only one Guru. JGD.

    Jay Guru Datta
    Be focused on what you want from a deep from your soul is very important. That means how it looks like is less important. Religion is just a form that brings confusion. Swami Ji shows the way how to get in the immaterial Divine form.

    • sujaya on April 1, 2013 at 7:21 am

    JGD. Appaji was,is and will be my Sadguru always.I should become deserving to receive your blessings.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on April 1, 2013 at 10:24 am

    JGD Appaji
    Appaji blessing me with Him in my life is the most wonderful and blissful experience. Nowhere else but with Appaji such peace can be experienced. There is no inclination to think of anything.,.just enjoy His divine presence and enjoy the ride. I humbly pray to Appaji to be with me forever.

    It is difficult for me to comment on this MMS. I was raised to be open-minded about religions. I raised my children (so I thought) to be open-minded. I was interested in reading all scriptures and teachings of gurus. There was total trust and open communication within the family (so I thought). Suddenly depression struck (me), a chemical imbalance in the brain. The young adult children (loved totally) were in denial of it. Swamiji entered my life. Saved me from dying. My life’s perspective changed. My values changed. Children became terrified and insecure. They rejected Swamiji. The son in secrecy converted to Christianity and displayed intolerance towards our family’s beliefs and practices. Without Sadguru’s assurance that all will be well in the end, I would not have been able to handle it. The situation is improving. He is guiding us all in our different paths, our different struggles, our different challenges and confusions. He alone has the answers for all the “Why? s” I will not understand. So I do not ask. Jaya Guru Datta

    • svetha on April 1, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, what simple clear MMS! It is so calm, so unspectacular. It gives me the same calmness of the security as to know that YOU are my GURU. I am very thankful that I have found YOU and so I have no ambitions to change.
    Humbly I bow down at YOUR Lotosfeet.

    • Vanaja on April 2, 2013 at 1:47 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    yes, the span of a lifetime is to short to jump from one to the other. Even there are many incarnations the Sadguru stays ONE.
    Humble Pranams
    Sri Guru Datta

  5. JAYA GURU DATTA! Shatha koti pranams to lotus feet of parama pujya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Swamiji. Thank u Appaji for giving excellent message. SRI GURU DATTA!

    • madhu talwar on April 3, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    jgd respect to the religion we are born in and the Spiritual Guru like You Who is searching for His own souls completes my life “sub kucch Khudaa se maang liyaa Tujhako maang ke uthatey nahin hain haath mere is duaa ke baad”. Now let me not waste time like a cow grazing little here little there in search for better grass, the one who digs for a well must not dig here and there he may never get water. my sincere thanks to Lord for all blessings onhn sgd

    All religions are different paths to reach the only almighty. They are explained in different ways like same rice is used to prepare different dishes. May lord bless us all with complete and true devotion towards almighty and faith in the path religion guides us.
