  1. The Divine Mother {Harapriya : Beloved of Lord Shiva} expresses herself through all beings.. animate & inanimate. Naturally, every entity in nature is perfect. Plants of a species manifest the same way, anywhere in the world. Flowers are perfect wherever they bloom
    One divinity empowers every entity in this universe. Yet, the crown of creation – man – struggles to attain perfection in his endeavour, while plants for example, have no problems doing so. They do have the pressures of rain & shine to weather.. and they do it with grace. Because they know no past or future, they also know no worry. They live in the present, always.
    Koti pranams Sathgurudeva!
    We’ll live in the present moment like those plants do. In such intense presence or awareness of the NOW, there is no worry.. no distraction.. hence perfection. If and when worry strikes, we’ll immerse ourselves in your Nada, detaching from that worry.. back to perfection.
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! Trust comes hard to humans who have suffered Swamiji, and all of us have been wounded and frightened. But your love and compassion are teaching us to be truly happy, to feel truly safe and to know real joy. Sri Guru Datta!

    Jaya Guru Datta. Pranam Appaji.
    Any one can achieve Perfection by totally attached with their work, and this is only possible if anyone forget’s or be’s free from worries. This can be possible by Guru Krupa.
    Thank you Appaji for all these wonderful statements.
    Sree Guru Datta! 🙂

    It is very enigmatic to me Sadgurudeva, that Puttuji’s explanation says that everything in Nature is perfect, except Man. Why is the Creator being prejudiced against man? What has man done to deserve his worrisome nature? Why does man suffer from lack of faith and is unwilling to accept everything that comes his way as the best that is possible? Puttuji knowingly says that plants, animals, insects, birds,and flowers do not worry. That is a little hard to believe. Ants and squirrels get concerned and save for the future. Birds suffer from fear and depression if neglected. Dogs pine away for an absent master. Other creatures seem to have needs other than just physical such as food, water, air and sunshine. Why is Man singled out in the explanation as the only imperfect being in nature? Not every fruit tree yields fruits nor does every flower bloom perfect. I pray for enlightenment and a better understanding, if it is possible, please. I feel that Man is perfect also. He just does not know it. After all, is not man simply a puppet in God’s hands? Are worrying or not worrying really in his control? Jaya Guru Datta

    Jgd. Detachment is the crux which Humans are not able to surmount despite the knowledge they posses.Every attempt made to-wards this direction is thwarted by the self interest.

    we can overcome all the worries by serving you GURU DEVA.

    • don ganguly on March 23, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, Worries cloud the mind and cause anxiety. Most importantly they do not allow us to live in the present moment. Thank you Appaji for this valuable lesson. Sri Guru Datta

    • Jagadish on March 23, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Worries arise when we take ownership for our actions and perform them with ego. When the sense of doer ship comes in, worries follow. But when we perform actions and offer it at the feet of god, without any expectations, our mind is free and relaxed. There is no fear. Sri Swamiji has very nicely given us this eternal message of Bhagavat Geeta in a wonderful package. Thank you! Jaya Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta, When the matter in hand is big or small. In your heart if you know you have done your best by surrendering your effort and your limitations, the gap between your efforts and perfection will look after itself. Pranams Gurudev in gratitude for the trust you evoke as the example of complete perfection.
    Sri Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta! Beautiful commentary by Puttuji to drive home the point of this message. For us to grow and spiritually nurture our mind, we need to be worry-free. Worries exist because we identify with the unreal, with the tangible objects such as our bodies, our friends and family, our wealth and other belongings. But, if we are to fulfil the responsibilities of this birth and make spiritual progress, we need to free ourselves from association with the unreal. MMS #229 said that the true nature of the soul is bliss. So, when we identify with that reality, the soul and the all-pervading Paramatman that drives both the animate and the inanimate, we will have no worries because everything will be filled with bliss. With the blessings of Sri Swamiji’s Lotus Feet, I hope to learn to always live in the present moment and detach myself from worries.

    A very nice teaching, Appaji has given today through this MMS. In the Divine Mother’s creations in the nature everything is Her wish—- Animate and InAnimate. But Puttuji as you said here except humanbeing all other creation in nature like plants and trees, don’t have any worry about past or future. They think only about the present and do their duty and ready to face anything which normally occur in nature. In otherwords it is a kind of detachment from worries by which they achieve perfection. But we as humanbeing always think about past and future and there by storing more worries only. Moreover in this Kaliyuga people are more interested in worldly pleasures and unwanted desires and due to this our mind will be misleaded which may end in despondency and finally develop more worries only. Therefore to over come this, we have to learn to control our mind basically . This is possible only through the spiritual path under the guidelines of our Sadguru , Whose words and teachings should be followed strictly. At the sametime , we should start this from our early part of our life itself. Once we practice this concept , we can develop detachment from worries and can achieve perfection in our life. Appaji’s music on key board is also giving a good happiness and the photography is also apt to this MSG. Thank You Appaji to give a good lesson to us through this MMS and get rid of from worries to achieve perfection in our life. JGD.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    I think I understand, that in order to develop towards perfection I need to stop identify with my worries. Only as a free person I am capable to go with the devine flow and have full trust in the will of god. Then it will be no later ME acting it will be HIM – only then perfection might be possible.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!

    “As long we live,let us live a life of happiness and joy which is possible through contentment only. Cause of all our worries is the garbage accumulation in our mind. Discard the garbage! You will be happy again.”

    Sadgurudeva,from God Word III:
    “All that we are doing now and will do in future is due to the power of Almighty. This should be understood by all clearly. The effect of this Divine Maya or sport is that every human being on this earth is subject to one kind of worry or other. One has to worry oneself even to tell a truth or utter a falsehood. Our thoughts may be vulgar or good, but we are worried about the outcome of those thoughts. The worry concerning one’s progress on the spiritual path is not a worry. It provides a sort of tonic to our nervous system and the intellect. Other kinds of worries culminate in the death of a person.”

    Sadgurudeva, JDRC , USA, April 08,09.
    Our Sadguru, Datta is family-like; looking our family worries on onehand , at the same time giving for spiritual guidance and knowledge also.
    Sadgurudeva has mentioned in many occasions that we need not worry once we boarded His train. Keeping our baggage on our head after boarding His train is our foolishness. His Will ,will not go too far away from His Grace. If the problem was persisting, it is then to strengthen our will or to erase our past karma. There is no need to tell our problems personally. Just talk to His photograph. Appaji listens. Nada and Seva (selfless) help us detach ourselves from our worries and achieve perfection with His Grace.!!

    Hanuman lives eternally on the Mountain Gandhamadana, He is always present in those places where the glories of Rama are sung, the name of Rama is constantly written and his mantra ‘Om Namo hanumate namaha’ is recited. This is the protection and perfection for this earth.

    Sri Guru Datta

    JGD. Perhaps worries are like negative passions. As Guru Gita says, may Guruji rob us of all passions. JGD.

    My beloved SADGURU, because I can come with all my worries to YOU I learn to be more and more detached of them. Without YOU I can’t imagine how I could live.
    Heartily I thank YOU.
    Humbly I bow down at YOUR Lotosfeet.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Aim Hrim Srim Harapriyayai Namah
    Perfection can only be reached with a tight connection to the Divine, because it can be only achieved through the Divine. When worrying we bring a distance between us and the Divine. Sri Swamiji frees us from our worries and helps us to achieve perfection.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on April 5, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    JGD Appaji
    Sri Swamiji always says we should live in the present. Constant worrying about future or regretting the past, makes our present miserable. The only way to be detached from problems is doing work selflessly…and constant listening to His music. All this is possible by His blessings only.

    Detachment, major component essential for spiritual path. May lord bless us all with detachment to experience the supreme almighty.
