  1. The divine bird Jatayu, fought Ravana when he abducted Sita to Lanka. In the mid-air battle, aged Jatayu lost his wings to Ravana’s sword. Jatayu knew his end was near, but held on till he met Rama & appraised him of Ravana’s southward flight with Sita.
    Rama reached just as Jatayu was dying, and was so grateful to know about Sita. As a mark of gratitude for help received, Rama performed the last rites of Jatayu thereby ensuring moksha for the divine bird.
    Dear Appaji,
    You’re our Rama, on a mission to embed dharmic principles in our minds.
    We know how fondly you remember all those who’ve contributed to your mission over the past decades. Every face, every action, you remember with gratitude.. however small the seva may have been. We’ll follow your example.
    Please bless us with the good fortune of serving your cause. We’d be privileged, because.. whatever we offer is only a small fraction of what we received from your grace. Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! You have blessed me with so many truly good people in my life over the years. I have been rich in this regard. My deepest pranams for those trustworthy souls you have given me as real friends. Please bless those who have been less than honest or deceitful or who have worked to harm me or hold me back with more loving true hearts and help me see them with caring eyes. You are the greatest hero in my life!

    To receive help is wonderful, but only, when it comes from the heart from the other person. That gives a deep relation. It is wonderful, when we all can help one at the other. Then deep relations are between all of us. Like this we don’t have wars!

    • Vanaja on January 12, 2013 at 10:11 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Gratitude is important – insight is great.

    Jai Guru Datta, thank you Sri Swamiji for this message….i aspire to use my mind for remembering the help and support i’ve received from persons known to me as well as those i don’t know, like my forefathers and foremothers, and the rishis and tapasvins who make this world more peaceful…..and my body for carrying out actions of gratitude, as well as to nurture more peace and purity on Earth.

  3. JGD.It is the quality of good one to remember ever the help received from others. This, one can notice in the case of animals,birds and other creatures too. So what about mankind!SGD.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Sri Swamiji gives us so much. Sometimes i think He just waits for a little bit from our side so that He has a reason to give back with full hands.
    I am so happy to write Jaya Sri Rama.
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah. Sri Rama and Lord Hanuman are so beautiful in every aspect.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Jaya Sri Rama
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

    • Antony Ramnarine on January 12, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    JGD. I thank Appaji for giving true meaning to my life. Sri Swamiji once said in Trinidad, “You do my job, and I will look after yours”. Since I have been involved at the holy Aripo Datta Ganga, I have been elevated in my job, and members of my family have advanced in their careers. The greatest thanks, however, go my beloved Sadguru for giving us the opportunity to serve Him.

    • Venkat on January 12, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. yet another anecdotal recalling from the Life History of Appaji. There are so many evidences that we come across everyday from Sri Swamiji’s divine guidance related to this principle. Thank You Appaji.

    • Vindar Badall on January 12, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    Jai Guru Datta.
    Thanks for reminding us oh Dear Sadguru. May Appaji bless us to always remember to be grateful to those who helped us because it is our very own Sadguru helping us in different ways. Jai Veera Hanuman!

  4. Yes dear puttuji, you are so right

    • on January 12, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Even when our seva is so little and can never reach the level of Your work for us, still You remember each single seva action of ours with gratitude, even after a long time? This shows how much You love us! Unconditional, eternal, divine love. There are no words for this. We are truly very very blessed to be with You. Sri Guru Datta

    • Vamshidhar Nagala on January 12, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, Performing seva is natural, necessary and wonderful. Sri Guru Datta

    • Hema on January 12, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    What could be worse than ingratitude? We are helped by others and most of all by our Sadgurdeva. May we never forget and always be thankful. Om namo Hanumate namaha. Jaya Guru Datta.

  5. Jaya Guru Datta. When I was a very young girl, my parents sent me and my older sister, who was quite young herself, alone on an airplane ride from New Jersey to San Francisco. There was a stop over and we somehow got bumped off of the connecting flight. We were alone and scared in some unknown airport when a stranger came to our rescue. I do not know if that beautiful woman was Jayalakshmi Mata or just a kind stranger. But I have never forgotten and though I cannot thank that woman I have always remembered and tried to help others in need. My childhood was very traumatic so someone being kind and watching out for us was an unusual and unexpected event. I never forgot and always remember those dark and loving eyes. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jai guru Datta
    Puttuji remembers all the good things for ever and bless all of us so much that he always remember the good things we did.

    • Neelam Bhambri Nayyar, USA on January 12, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Jai Guru Datta, I am greatful and thankful for everybody in my life, some for helping me always, some for being there for me and some for just being who they are.
    Swami Ji you are our Rama, our Datta Prabhu who has taken us under your motherly wings and are onstantly teaching us about dharmic principles. We are greatful for oppurtunitues which let us do small seva in your cause. We are a drop in your ocean and your Karuna towards us is big and constant. Countless Pranams to you Sadguru Deva.

    • Phani Prasanthi on January 12, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Jai Guru Datta. Sri Gurubyo Namaha. Yes it is true. whatever we offer is only a small fraction of what we received from appaji’s grace.

    • on January 12, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    When we see today’s MMS, we can imagine the kindness of our Appaji also. This is because we see in this kaiyuga , our Sadguru Himself as Rama for us. The photography and the Bhajan on Lord Rama are very, very nice for this MSG. Here the Bird Jatayu was fighting with Ravana to rescue Sita mata with in His capacity and but could not. Here Jatayu was following the dharmic truth which is subtle and sensitive, MMS 102 and waiting for Rama to convey the information about Sita. Finally as a mark of gratitude inturn Rama performed the last rites to Jatayu . From this we can realize, how Rama was kind enough in all respects. Similarly our Appaji is also so kind enough in everything. In this connection to my experience , He never forget what ever we have done in the past for His mission and the blessings , which He has given to us is beyond any explanation. That is why Appaji always used to say that , you do your duty and don’t wait for the result since you will get the same in it’s own way. From this we must learn that muchofconfidence, we have to develop in our life. More over I even remember Appaji’s words saying that you should try to get your name registered in His Heart for which we have to do our seva to His mission with in our capacity in all respects. Thank you Appaji for reminding us and we continue to do our seva for the development of your mission in the best possible manner. JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji !! Vandanam Saccidananda Sadguru Vandanam !!

    The feeling of gratitude reveals a person’s character or the lack thereof when no gratitude is felt. It reflects upon how the person has been groomed and what kind of values have been imbibed into him. An ingrate person soon distances himself automatically through his deeds from life and society at large. Many times such values building start at home. Which is why Appaji as our loving mother, father, Guru and God is constantly inculcating good values into us right from our childhood so that we internalize such morals. Appaji through example and deeds, teachings, and various channels is irrigating our minds to form the right thoughts and carry out righteous actions. Appaji we are forever indebted to you!!
    Recently Our Sri Rama offered cooked rice to Lord Dattatreya in memory of the departed souls, who have rendered service to Datta Peetham. We will follow You,Sadgurudeva !!

    Jai Sri Ram !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !! Sri Guru Datta !!

    • aruna k rao on January 13, 2013 at 12:38 am

    i am eternally grateful for all the help i have received from you pujya appaji. thank you for giving me this wonderful chance of being your humble and grateful devotee

    • Maurice Clarke on January 13, 2013 at 6:28 am

    JGD. I constantly remember Jayalakshmi Mata’s instructions to Swamiji to collect the devotees who have gone afar. Swamiji said once too that it is possible to repay the dept owed to one’s father but near impossible for the dept owed to one’s mother. How more difficult can it be to repay Guru and Paramaguru? Please accept our tiny efforts dear Swamiji. JGD.

  6. JAYA GURU DATTA ! Shata koti pranam’s to lotus feet of swamiji’s thank’s for blessing to all devotee’s.

    rama performed last rites to jatayu as a gratitude ,we wust not forget any body, s help, om namo hanumathenamhaa

    • Dr S J Saikumar on January 13, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Even though Sri Rama was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, he still remembers the services rendered by Veera Hanuman and Jatayu. Every human being will be helped by someone during some stage of life. My prayers to Appaji and Datta to keep me humble and remember all help received.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on January 13, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    JGD Appaji
    Beautiful MMS!
    Appaji, bless us with the wisdom to always help others and never hurt anyone. Also let us not forget anyone who has been kind to us. This transformation in cleansing our minds is possible only by Appaji.. and Appaji, let us never never ever forget You!

    • Sarumati on January 15, 2013 at 4:45 am

    Jatayu is a great idol to me ! He is an exemplary “KING” of the hearts.

    • Joseph on January 16, 2013 at 11:23 am

    Wonderful audio visuals and message.

    • madhu talwar on January 18, 2013 at 10:23 am

    jgd pranaams Swami Ji compassion is Your quality and Your Form itself You are always promoting us to be in the association of noble souls and its a fact that noble or good soul never forget the good done to them, let me also follow this principle onhn sgd

    • Archana Penukonda on January 26, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    Sri Swamiji has said this multiple times, that we should never forget the help received. From the message it is clear that when someone receives help, what sets a good soul apart is that he/she will never forget the help received. Sri Swamiji doesn’t need any help, but anyone that serves Swamiji’s mission sincerely always gets bigger blessings in return. We may tend to dismiss a small favor received and forget all about it. We may justify it saying the help was not a big deal or that we would have done the same had we been in the shoes of the person that helped. It’s clear from the message that it doesn’t matter how big or small the help was, or whether or not it (the help)was the natural thing to do. We should always remember the help received and reciprocate at the first opportunity. A lot of people forget the help received by Swamiji and walk away after they get what they want. May they all (and all of us) always remember Swamiji’s presence and guidance in our lives!

    • svetha on February 2, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, please, let us never forget, that we are only instruments in YOUR hands (MMS 6.1.13). Without YOUR help we are nothing.
    Koti pranams.
