    Sooo much to learn from a river..
    Learning Faith – The river doesn’t pause to think & check if it can take that fall. It just takes that leap of faith from the top.. however tall it may be. No doubt, no falsehood, no sorrow. Only Faith, that flowing on the river bed will take it to the Ocean
    Learning Focus – The river stays its course always, as it flows to its Ocean. No distractions, no inertia. Only Focus, to stay its course, towards the Ocean.
    With such Faith & Focus every drop of the river does reach the Ocean. It doesn’t matter where that Faith & Focus come from.. what matters is their presence. Like, it doesn’t matter where the child’s Faith & Focus in the Mother come from.. without them, it will not grow.
    Pranams Sathguru!
    It doesn’t matter where those paths behind you come from. When we walk these paths of Faith & Focus, we know they lead to You. We will.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! As a child, I was taught that faith was a gift from God and that not everyone was given that gift. I love this message because it brings hope that anyone can have faith and reap its rewards. Sri Guru Datta!

  3. Jai Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOOTA
    Wow I am impressed to hear fear and greed take us closer to God. So many people life in fear, so it is good to know, there is a positive site…
    Sri Guru Datta and humbles of prostrations to YOU

    Kamsa’s strong belief that Krishna was born to kill him filled his heart with terror night and day. His fear made Kamsa see Krishna everywhere, inside and outside. His entire focus was on avoiding death at Krishna’s hand. That brought Krishna to his presence. Krishna killed him to give him release from his curse. The soul of Kamsa, who was originally the gatekeeper of Vishnu, happily returned to Vaikuntha. Love for God in the heart of Meera that she felt since childhood due to her past good karma, blessed her with union with Krishna. Greed for father’s love made young Dhruva engage in severe penance with faith and focus, under the guidance of Narada. He had Lord Narayana appear before him to grant him great boons. Lovely stories from the Puranas and recent history are narrated to us on many occasions by Sadguru Swamiji. Many people begin their prayers with greed, wanting this or that. They feel intense fear that God may punish them for all their sins committed in the past and being committed now, and pray for forgiveness. They have intense faith in the power of God. Gradually with more and more prayers and remembrance of God for His infinite power and compassion, love for God develops in the heart and replaces greed and fear. Lovely MMS. Thank you Swamiji for this reassuring message that even imperfect beginnings can lead to great endings. Jaya Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta! Here is the Divine Mother asking us to just approach Her, to just take our little baby steps towards Her. It doesn’t matter whether we approach our mother with love or with greed for what she has to offer or out of fear of something. She will always take us in and protect us. She will then teach us the lessons we need, sometimes with pure compassionate love, sometimes with tough love. Either way, she loves you and all she wants is the best for you. That’s exactly how I feel about this message. It’s another revelation for me, but it underscores as so many other MMSes did, the undying, unending love that God has for us. I am truly surprised, I never knew anything like this. I used to hear in sermons on TV and in books that God loved us, but I thought it was something people liked to say or believe. Through these MMSes and through my experiences with Swamiji, I see that no one, just no one can love us as much as God/Sathguru does. You can kick and scream and doubt and question and hate, but God/Sathguru loves you.
    Thank You for this wonderful message, Swamiji. Your love for us surpasses every kind of love. I hope we can learn to love You as much as You love us. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    In MMS308, Appaji says, God hides in your heart. In today’s MMS according to me, Appaji says Faith and Aim are also important for a successful life, even though due to our karma, sometime, we have to face difficulties in our life. The photography here is very apt for this MSG, since the aim of the river is ultimately to reach the ocean. When it falls from any height, it never bother about any hindrance in between that and at the sametime the aim is reach the ocean . Here the river has got complete faith also with in it and there by the aim is to reach the goal. Similarly as humanbeing , when ever we do any work or any service we should have the faith in it and our ultimate aim should be to reach the goal as per our wish. In other words in between that if any thing goes wrong we should not worry about that and try to rectify the same and proceed. For this we have to also tune our mind in such a way. This can be possible only through the spiritual path. Here we have to follow our Appaji’s words , teachings and obey His commands and then only we can tune our mind and reach our goal. So naturally we should have the faith in our Guru and should proceed for anything with out fear. That much faith we have to develop in our carrier with our Master. This is because our life will not be successful with out a Guru on any account. The example Puttuji you have given here about a the retaliationship between the child and mother. Thank You Appaji to give us a good lesson and we follow you in good faith and through Your blessing we will reach our goal in life and do seva for Your mission. JGD.

    JGD Appaji – Thank you for this message as we are very much greedy, greedy and greedy to have more love & affection from Appaji as we love Appaji more than anything because we are living by Appaji blessings – SGD

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!

    Sathgurudeva hides and remains in our heart only. He knows our past, present and the future. So there is nothing to hide from Sathgurudeva and we need not waste time in analyzing what brought us to Sathgurudeva etc. We should always remember that Pujya Sri Swamiji is present in all living beings and so we should never hurt anybody or any being. We must follow all of HH’s words with faith and focus. That way we are closer to our God.

    Sri Guru Datta !!

    JGD Appaji
    Fire is fire it burns no matter what. We all have come to You initially because of problems, curiosity, even spiritual interest.
    With Your infinite compassion and love, You have lit the fire of knowledge in our hearts and made us realize the trivial nature of things we are seeking. We will not let the fire die, we will ensure it lights our hearts completely and destroys the darkness. Thank You Appaji!

    My beloved SADGURU, I supplicate YOU that we all can rise in faith and focus.
    Thank YOU for YOUR help

    • Joseph on May 27, 2013 at 10:18 am

    There are many ways to reach a goal. Similarly, to go closer to God it can be any of the human feelings that can make us sustain the focus only on God. May lord bless us all to have faith and focus on HIM with true and selfless love, fear of moving away from lord and greed to know and experience true bliss.
