  1. Trees & snow are very different, yet comfortable in each other’s company. It’s such focussed adherence to swadharma, with mutual respect that sustains Creation.
    Happy Birthday Sadgurudeva!
    You’re Narayana – Rama, always being the beginning of the change you want to see in all of us.
    You’re Govinda – Krishna, leading us to discover so much to correct within ourselves.. we’ve no time or credibility to correct others.
    Coming on your birthday, with your finger pointed inwards, this message makes us realize.. The day we correct our inner flaws of attachment to our lower nature, will be the day we are born again, when our flawless higher nature will shine through in all its glory. We realize, that is one birthday you are looking forward to celebrate.
    We now know what you mean when you say we are celebrating our birthday.. not yours. We will live up to your birthday wish. We follow you.
    With a million Panams on your birthday,
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Life is very precious and time we spend every second means, a second less in our life. In this time it is good if we are spending it on correcting ourselves. May lord bless us all to correct our mistakes and learn from others mistakes,

    • Geetha Radhakrishnan on May 26, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Our humble prostrations at the holy feet of our beloved Sadguru. Happy Birthday Swamiji. A very valuable message which should be practiced always, daily. Before pointing our finger towards anyone we have to correct ourselves. Beautiful visuals and melodious bhajan. Jai Guru Datta.

    It is so great to know that Sri Swamiji is caring for all of us. So we can concentrate on all the steps to improve ourselves. He helps us so much to overcome our limitations, shortcomings and accumulated wrong habits of mind.
    Happy Happy birthday to our Divine Mother and Father Sri Swamiji. Your birthday is a birthday for us all.

    Jaya Guru Datta! Dear Appaji, touché! I believe this is one of my great weaknesses. I pray to be forgiven for trying to correct others and criticising them. Mea culpa. Please bless me that at look at myself in first, second and third place and to correct whatever fault I find then. Happy birthday to you and all of us. We had a wonderful homa & puja with some Datta family members today at Duesseldorf. Sri Guru Datta!

    • Dariashakti on May 26, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Happy Birthday Swamiji! Today Swamiji said He never gives up on us…how can we do anything but try to improve with that kind of support! He asked that we make a 30 percent effort to do better with the things He has asked of us like continuously chanting mantras. Om Namo Hanunate! Such a simple request….what great rewards…Sri Guru Datta!

    • Antony Ramnarine on May 26, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. On this auspicious date of Sri Swamiji’s birthday, I rededicate myself to correcting myself in order to continue in His divine service.

    • Dr S J Saikumar on May 26, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    What a glorious start to this Monday morning, Appaji has called for introspection in all Datta Devotees. None of us are perfect, we all have flaws, correcting them should be our greatest endeavor in life.

    • TR.Sethuraman, Cochin on May 27, 2013 at 2:18 am

    A good lesson, Appaji has given on the occasion of His birthday through this MMS 361. The trees, plants, and Plannets are doing their duty and not bothered about others or anything. Similarly Appaji is alerting us that we should not find fault with others unnecessarly , rather than correcting ourself if anything goes on wrong. The photography is very apt for this MSG since trees and snow are doing their duty properly which is it’s swadharma . Similarly we should also realize our innerself and reach to the state of selfrealization . Once we reach to this state, our thoughts flow through the mind will be like water. Accordingly we will not bother about others and not only that we will not unnecessary involve in other’s matter. But to attain this we have to follow the spiritual path under the guidelines of our Appaji. Thank You Appaji to remind us and we follow You in all respects and correct ourself if anything goes on wrong rather than correcting others. JGD.

  5. JAYA GURU DATTA! Shathakoti Shastanga Pranams to Lotus Feet of Parama Pujya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Swamiji, it is True Appaji thank u for sending valuable MMS. SRI GURU DATTA!

    I regret, that I wouldn’t greet you on that day.
    I like the peaceful mountain scenery on this MMS. Swamiji with the finger pointing and the flashlights makes me very well remind to control myself. Thank you, dear Appaji, to give me the strength to recognise when I’am at my weakest.
    Koti Koti Pranams beloved Sadgurudeva.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on May 30, 2013 at 1:25 am

    JGD Appaji
    Empty vessels make more noise. We do not have any knowledge,nor are we perfect, being empty inside we are ever ready to preach and criticize. We are learning to fill our vessels with You and Your teachings, we will be busy in Your seva so that we do not have time to be involved in any negative/gossip or worldly activities.

    • Maurice Clarke on May 30, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    JGD. Please give us the strength to face the devil of inner corrections we must make and finish the game. JGD.

    • manini swiss on June 18, 2013 at 3:09 pm
