  1. Om Narassimhaya Namah!

    Oh Lord Vishnu! How many avataras you take through successive yugas, in pursuit of your mission to establish dharma! How many different expectations you meet in fulfilment of that mission! In spite of being omnipotent, omnipresent & omniscient, you continue your effort for wellness of your children. This is why you are revered

    Oh Arka ! In spite of being the supreme source of energy in all of life, you continue to shine through the yugas, sustaining life in this universe. This is why you are revered

    Pranams Gurudeva!

    In spite of so many glorious achievements across continents, you still continue your efforts in pursuit of your mission. This is why you are revered across cultures

    Having been in your grace for so long, we realize success is not a flash in the pan kind of happening. It takes diligent persistent perseverant effort like Lord Vishnu, Arka & you’ve demonstrated all along. We’re following you. Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    The last time I didn’t made a lot of pujas. Then at our Satsang I had to make a puja, but I had not so much exercise and had problems with the text. After I was very angry about me and I knew: now I have to chant the puja realy regularely. I becan with my exercises the same day and am very strong with me. Now I am sure that at the next satsang it will be better. It isn’t possible to let go things when we want have success!

    Jaya Guru Datta, All spiritual practitioners know that the certain times like sunrise, noon, sunset, moonrise, etc. are ideal for spiritual practice. But our Guru has reminded us many times that any time is pranayama time or japa time or bhajan time. Any moment is ripe for sadhana. We have a tendency to separate the spiritual and the mundane. But the mundane is just as pregnant with God as our puja rooms if we allow it to be. Sri Swamiji has given these MMS to practice in our offices, in our homes, in our communities. We have a few minutes at a light to chant “Om Namo Hanumate Namaha.” We can sing his bhajans in the car…..every moment is ripe for continuous practice! Sri Guru Datta!

  2. Jai Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOTTA
    In this fast world it is not easy to have staying power. Every body around, like to see direct success, including me; other wise we lose interest and we have doubts about ourselves.
    But with YOUR guidance i learned, not to think about success, to do my duties and still pray.
    Sri Guru Datta and actinism of love

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji!

    This is an incredible recipe to succeed in anything we undertake: Education, Career or Spiritual Journey. As Putuji very eloquently explained, Goal-oriented Sadhana is the key!

    Bruce Lee once said: “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

    Pujya Gurudeva – Please Grace us with the opportunity to walk in your footsteps in every single life, so we successfully attain the Sachchidananda state – which is the goal of Human life. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Incessant effort !!! Thats what we still learn at this age to the physical manifestation of Your Holiness. It is not just the MMS or the discourse or the books that tell us and teach us the spirit with which we live/we should live. It is the actual ‘leadership by example’ that Appaji shows all of us. Observe the routine of Appaji one day and anyone will be humbled looking at the studious effort that Appaji puts in – to take care of His children. Even at the physical level it is not humanly possible for that effort to be spent. I always remember this one exclamation from Telugu Life History, describing Appaji after a 10-day, strict fasting and strenuous, all-day-long nava avarana pujas “aayanadi dehama? lohama?” – the essence of the MMS is to work tirelessly to accomplish what we should, what we came on to this earth for… Please bless us all with that strength and courage Appaji…

    Jaya Guru Datta! Thank You for the reminder Appaji to not give up till the goal is reached. Swami Vivekananda said “Stop not till the goal is reached”. Sri Swamiji is saying the same with this message, that continuous, consistent effort is required till we reach the goal. We live in a world of instant gratification where lack of instant results prompts us to move on. People try different techniques of meditation because no one technique seems to give results fast enough. Continuous effort is the surest recipe for success. It is said that Ratnakara continuously chanted “ma ra” on the advise of sage Narada and came to be known as Sage Valmiki once he received the grace of Lord Rama. We will strive for Your grace, Swamiji. Please bless us to never get discouraged in our journey towards Your Lotus Feet!

    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Arkaya Namah
    Such a lot of effort is needed for the MMS project. Every MMS is a masterpiece of divine knowledge and art. So many thanks to Sri Swamiji and all the gifted creators of these wonderful Musical Message Sayings!
    Also constant effort is needed to bring the learned knowledge into daily life. This effort is so nice! It fills the life of us and all around us with divine knowledge and bliss.
    Koti pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Let me practice these invaluable messages continuously. When I fail let me dust myself off and try again. I love you Sri Swamiji. Please make this love for you grow and grow. Let my practice continuously reflect this love. Sri Guru Datta.

    What a nice advice, Appaji has given through this MMS today. Puttuji, you have also given a good explanation about Lord Vishnu and Arka who stands for Dharma in all respects. Similarly we should realize how much effort Appaji has taken for the development of the spiritual path. If you look in to the back history, we can understand here that Appaji has come up in to this level only by His continues effort. To my experience I associate with Appaji for the last 31 years and I noticed that, what is the tremendous development happened to our mission. Now in Nada, He has completed 25 years and the silverjubilee was performed in the most prestigious hall in the world at London which everybody knows. Similarly nowthe country’s tallest monolithic Hanuman statue hascome up in our sacred Ashrama for which kumbhabhisheka is performing on 26th of this month. Even this MMS project is a very tough one and still Appaji putting all His efforts for our benefit and to develop our spiritual path. From all these facts, now Appaji is reminding us nothing is impossible and by our continues effort we can succeed in our life. Therefore Appaji we are so fortunate to get You as our Sadguru especially in this kaiyuga and we also share with you for the development of your mission and follow your words and teachings for our growth in the spiritual path. JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Divine 90 second Nandana MMSs, one MMS every day, makes us surprisingly put continuous effort towards success (positive self-changes). Everything is Appaji’s Grace !! Thank you for making us realise this truth. With continuous effort from our end, Guru’s Grace will make us succeed. We are following your footsteps, Appaji.

    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!

    Jaya Guru Datta, We are reminded by such a wonderful MMS message that continued, hard work along with the divine blessings of Swamiji can provide successful results. Thank You Swamiji . Sri Guru Datta.

    • Joseph on December 20, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Sri Swamiji’s efforts are appreciable in conveying MMS in various Indian languages along with English. i feel Sri Swamiji is setting all of us an example because it takes lots of effort in making of such wonderful videos with messages which are useful to society and acceptable to all. It’s abbsolutely true that there is nothing that can replace sincere efforts. Luck can only help us to reach the goal easily, but can’t give us success without the ground work of continuous efforts. Still there is one factor which is exceptional for all rules and that is “God’s grace” which can do miracles. We should put in our efforts and it’s God wish what HE wants to gift us with. If our efforts results in success we should enjoy it and if result is a failure without any disappointment we should take it as a lesson to correct ourselves and work more hard to complete the work. May Lord bless us all with strong mind for continous efforts and happy life.

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    without doing something nothing can be reached. If we made a knot in a cloth and we want to remove it we need concentration an do it with our hands. Similary it is with any work.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • on December 21, 2012 at 6:43 am

    In the life history SRI SWAMIJI explained it with an example regarding continuous effort and success. THAT IS SADHANA Strong Ambition,Clear cut decision,continuous effort are the key points for the SUCESS.

    • svetha on December 22, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Liebster SADGURU, mögen wir alle die nötige Durchhaltekraft entwickeln können und DIR somit würdige Devotes sein.
    Ich bitte um DEINE Unterstützung und danke DIR dafür.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on April 9, 2013 at 1:54 am

    JGD Appaji
    Even though the sun is shining on them, the plants require water to grow. Similarly, Appaji is always with us, still we need to put in the effort of devotion and strive to transform ourselves. Appaji with great compassion has even provided us so many different methods to improve – music, yoga, seva, MMS etc. Lets practice and become what He wants us to be.
