  1. Why do our Guru’s have to be human? Dattatreya learnt from 24 Gurus – animate& inanimate. 5 of them are seen in this MMS – Fire, Air, Earth, Sky & Water. We’re lesser mortals. Our Guru’s have to be human.

    We’re copycats by nature. We copy our parents, teachers, bosses.. anyone in a position of authority. The personality of such role models reflects in personality of their followers. Rama was the role model in Thretha Yuga, Krishna in Dwapara Yuga. Our state of life in Kaliyuga, reflects the quality of our role models.
    When the world runs out of righteous role models, God descends as His Holiness, for us to copy. So, His Holiness looks inside of us through his divine lenses & expresses the divinity that He wants us to live. In walking His talk, He shows us how to be divine.
    Pranams Gurudeva ! We’ll copy your patience, discipline, selflessness, universal love, tireless service, humility.. We’ll learn from you & follow you to divinity. Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji.

    How does my Guru express divinity? How does my Guru train others in becoming like him?
    He shows infinite love, respect and compassion towards everything and every being in Creation. He never expresses the weaknesses of human nature such as greed, anger, lust, arrogance, jealousy, fear, selfishness, and obsession. In the face of success and failure he maintains a calm countenance and a balanced posture. He is a master of the five elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space; He does not succumb to their powers; He controls them as He chooses. His knowledge is unlimited and is not learned from books; He knows the past, present, and future of all that exists in nature. His powers of accomplishment are unlimited. What my Sadguru has achieved globally in forty five years, no human can achieve. He personally reaches out to people of all ages and nations and gives simple spiritual lessons on how to rise above human limitations. The empire that He builds is of peace and love in the hearts of men, not power, fame, or finances. My Guru is the personification of divine music that heals and sustains. If you wish to see divinity, come and have the darshan of Parama Pujya His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji. Jaya Guru Datta

    “How can a man be treated as God? How can God be born as a human being and lead another man to the level of God? How can a man possibly express divine qualities? This whole concept sounds ludicrous and absurd,” declare many who have not experienced the association of Sadgurudeva with an open and receptive mind. This sentiment perhaps explains why so few of the billions that populate this earth truly believe in a God-man, although every major religion has had a prophet in a human form who has led thousands towards divinity. Even to recognize a Guru as divinity descended upon this earth, one needs to have earned the grace of God in the first place. Not everyone is that fortunate. We are all truly blessed indeed! Jaya Guru Datta!

    • Savitri on October 10, 2012 at 9:07 am

    To understand the divine nature of mankind is very very difficult for us. Even when we see Swamiji, it is often very confusing. That’s why it is very important to go with the help from the Guru step by step. I trust in Swamiji that He will show me more and more what is my nature!

    Jai Guru Datta.Ammazing video made with lots of love for us. The bhajan is beautiful and most appropriate for me especially because as a student I have a presentation on friday and this message and visuals just gave me amazing ideas. Its only possible by your grace. Please guide and be with us always.

    Jai Guru Datta, the song used in this video is very apt. Lord Dattatreya is the adiguru whose incarnation is aimed at upliftment of the mankind. Like a teacher can share his knowledge because he is the authority of knowledge, similarly only Guru can guide us to divinity because He himself is a complete Devine form. Guru is a principle and not just a form, who guides us towards divinity. But all Dtta devotees are so lucky to have Sri Swamiji as Sadguru who guides us and blesses us always like Mother, Father and Guru

    • on October 10, 2012 at 10:40 am

    we always find faults in others ,I listened in many speeches from SRISWAMIJI ,he always observe the good deeds of the people not the bad deeds,i will try to the same.

    jgd,guru is the only gateway to experience divinity in every individual.because he makes the people around him to feel the deep asleep divinity within every individual through his actions but personally i feel by being in the mere presence of divine appaji we can experience the divinity within as in the presence divine light , inumerable number of lights get lightened.

    • Gyan Ramlogan on October 10, 2012 at 10:52 am

    JGD Appaji, due to our ignorance and karmas we have bought you down to our human level,now please tkae us up to your level of GODHOOD.

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Beautiful video MMS depicting the divine nature of pujya gurudeva. our pujya guru deva who is an incarnation of lord dattatreya, has taken human form to protect us and lift us towards divinity.
    Pujya gurudeva sets a example for all of us by expressing the divine nature of man. Thank you Appaji for this great MMS video message. We will follow your foot steps towards divinity.

    Sri Guru Datta

    • on October 10, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Awesome MMS! The opening image of Agni is so powerful. The first thought that came to my mind was the fact that Guru is like fire, pure, sacred and untouched. He burns but he does not get burnt. A goldsmith melts gold in fire to remove impurities and make it more malleable so that it can become an ornament that adorns. Similarly, He burns us until we become pure and worthy of His divinity. Oh Appaji, your grace is all we need. You are here to take us with you and please please make us worthy of your love and grace. JGD SGD!!

    • on October 10, 2012 at 11:10 am

    He identifies us and picks us up and we dont even have a clue of it most times. He befriends us with His childishness, He teaches us in a way that we learn the lesson right, the very first time. He lures us to Him with His innocent smile. We are immersed in His Maya and He is busy turning us around. He is doing his act in the most clandestine way but the results are so evident. We are being polished in a way that we shine amidst equals. Appaji, I owe my everything to you, you own me!! Pranams to your lotus feet. JGD!!

    • drs.satyanarayana and Umadevi,SGS Hospital,Mysore. on October 10, 2012 at 11:14 am

    JGD.Sathguru is none other than Lord Dattatreya, incarnating in various forms from Time to Time.In this Datta Avathara the devotee is very lucky, as the Lord Appears with great speed to shower boons in Kaliyuga.In no Yuga GOD was so near with simple prayer of Hari Nama.Though GURU looks through his lense for Eligible devotees for Salvation,Man is trvelling with His body to the World of SRIHARI with His total devotional Harikeertana.The other way of devotion is also being told that of Kriyayoga.A Discipline of the Body and Mind aimed at The Feet of GURU.

    • pushpa on October 10, 2012 at 11:16 am

    JGD, this is still a long way to go, I will try and try again and with Gurus Grace one day … Om namo hanumate namaha.

    • Praveen Nidumolu on October 10, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Pujya Gurudeva – Jai Guru Datta!
    Lord Dattatreya learnt from 24 Gurus in Nature. Though all those 24 Gurus still exist around us today, we barely are aware of their existence, let alone, learning from them. Also in this Kaliyuga, Leadership in most spheres of life is fraught with Greed, Selfishness, Ego, flaunting of Material possessions etc. It is very easy to get influenced by today’s Leaders and define the goals of our life and Success in terms of Material Possessions, Career Progression and Power/Fame.
    How then can we avoid falling for these traps – that don’t give us lasting happiness?
    Well, we are all extremely fortunate that our Gurudeva is among us teaching by example how to avoid these elusive materials pursuits and instead cleanse/transform ourselves internally through various means – Yoga, Healing Music, Bhajans, Homas/Pujas etc.
    Instead of residing in the Sahyadri hills in all His Glory as Lord Dattatreya, Appaji chooses to go through all challenges associated with taking a body – without being attached to anything in this world but exist purely as ‘Sat-Chit-Ananda’, thereby inspiring millions around the world to transform ourselves watching his example.
    Humble prostrations for your infinite Grace/Compassion! Sri Guru Datta.

    • annessa on October 10, 2012 at 11:43 am

    We must learn to trust and believe in our Sadguru fully and honestly.
    He is always showing and teaching us the ways and lessons towards the right path, this gift is priceless.
    Millions of humble prostrations to your lotus feet beloved Sadgurudeva…
    Jaya Guru Datta

    • Hema on October 10, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Verily, to be in Appaji’s presence is to be in the presence of the supreme godhead himself. HIS love, compassion and grace impart an extraordinary bliss that cannot be duplicated by any mere human. I feel bad for those people who even in HIS presence do not recognise the divinity so near them. Since becoming your child , you have cleansed me of many impurities and evil tendencies. You have imparted devotion, love, peace, bliss and best of all – my mind is always contemplating the greatness of my Sadgudeva. So you are slowly making your child divine. How can I ever express my gratitude and love to the ONE who has given so much to me? All I can do is surrender. I offer my heart, soul, body to you for your work. Jaya guru Datta. Om namo Hanumate namaha.

  3. JGD. Thank you Dear Puttuji. The last paragraph of your comment says it all. I pray, in full awareness, that I imbibe those magnificent qualities of Our Avadhoota Swamiji. Sri Guru Datta.

    • on October 10, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    It is easy to adapt the ignorant view that if all is God then I am God as well. This notion is very dangerous as the ego while acting humble is actually very inflated. It will ultimately lead to downfall. Neo Advaitans can take attitude that it is all One with idea that whatever comes to the attention is ok and act accordingly, but this too does not serve to becoming divine. The Datta Sadguru who fully embodies those qualities is Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji. With His loving manner He is showing us and allowing us to experience what this Divinity is. Moulding our entire being into That. I Am eternally grateful for this Divine intervention. Jaya Guru Datta

    Jai Guru Datta! We are so lucky to be in the association of the most precious living example of divinity! Not only He gives the divine example, also He shows the pathway how to follow His example.We have to struggle to become pur and thus capable to follow. With Sri Swamiji’s grace it will come… …. ….

    • Joseph on October 10, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    God protects a new born baby in the form of mother caring and protecting the baby, guides the child in right and prosperous path in form of father who is strict and harsh to execute his duty properly. Similarly God takes different forms to come and help us in our life. As doctor is aware of disease causing agent and also the cure, similarly saints are the complete form of divinity and they can guide us towards divinity as they are aware of the various obstacles man faces before being Devine. Thus they can guide us to the right path to become Devine because God loves all his children and takes different forms to transform an ordinary man with devine nature. Marvellous message and audio visuals.

    • on October 10, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Sri Swamiji shows us the world through His lenses. We perceive more and more the divine nature of all around us. The world and all its inhabitants look much different from this view. For me they look much nicer. But also their relation to me is changing. All around and all what happens is able to teach me. Since we are also of divine nature we can get into contact to the divine knowledge in us through the grace of Sri Swamiji. This is so helpful and wonderful.
    Finally we can also achieve the experience of communion with our divine nature.
    Koti pranams to the Divine Lots Feet of Sadgurudeva, who makes all this possible.

    • dariashakti on October 10, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji, you have taught me through the rich smell of the black soil in the forest and its creatures. You have taught me through the roar of a waterfall, the gusts of a hurricane and the gentle breeze through the bedroom window on a summer night. You have taught me through the fire of homa and through the light in your eyes. You have taught me through eagles soaring on updrafts and deer tiptoeing up to me while meditating alone in the woods. You have every element to teach me who I am and I am only gratitude….

    Lord Parameswar Himself assumes human form, takes on the name of Guru and wanders on earth. We are privileged to be born in this Kali yuga when our beloved Appaji is around !! Appaji has come to uplift humanity and put it on a righteous path.

    Pujya Sri Swamiji reaches down to our level, and extends his hands to lift us to divinity. It is for this reason that He has assumed a human form. Appaji knows us thoroughly. Pujya Gurudeva is trying so many ways to educate and uplift us.

    I surrender to Sadgurudeva, and wish to be a squirrel at His Lotus Feet!! Appaji is our saviour!!

    Jaya Guru Datta! God descends to earth in the form of a Guru. Sri Swamiji can effortlessly and instantly build temples, ashramas, travel different continents, raise funds to help the under privileged etc if He so wishes. But, He doesn’t. He struggles like we human beings do, goes through laborious planning and execution and painstakingly reviews the well being of all organizations and all people connected to Him. I may not be able to follow in His footsteps, but I try to follow His instructions. I am not successful yet in all my efforts in following His words, but I can find more divinity in the world around me now than I did before I met Swamiji. Every year in the association of Sri Swamiji is teaching me something, a small lesson, that makes a significant difference in my outlook. Sri Swamiji reminds me that the same divinity manifests itself in the animate and the inanimate. To the divine Guru of the Gurus, Sri Swamiji, I offer my obeisances.

    • Hira Duvvuri on October 10, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    Indeed, What a unique and effective means our Sadgurudeva has chosen, this MMS video feature via the Internet to communicate with people of all ages, interests, and nationalities on a daily basis, personally speaking with each of them, using visual and audio features with such impact producing tremendous influence, and thought provoking messages! Only someone with divine insight, tireless initiative and endless compassion would have embarked on such a scintillating project as this. Each message can be experienced over and over again, pondered over, and enhanced by the responses it stirs in the hearts of other devotees. Every message is further clarified and explained by Puttu Gam! What a mind-boggling concept of spiritual light-giving, that overflows with divine care and concern for all fellow beings without exception, who are groping in the dark, drowned in illusion! And all this is free and available to the world at large. Is any further proof needed to show that divinity is expressing itself through our Guru who is gently lighting our path to a higher realm? Sri Guru Datta

  4. Jaya Guru Datta! Thank you Mother Swamiji for all the ways You teach us and for all of the tools that You give us to transform us. You know my favorites are Datta Kriya Yoga and Swamiji music. But really it is Your example that is the best teacher. And these MMS messages have been so helpful. I love You Dearest Mother. Sri Guru Datta

    JGD Appaji!
    Recently came across this saying by Appaji “Delight in the beauty that surrounds you”. Appaji is divinity Himself so everything around Him is divine. Fire,water,wind,sky, space everything is filled with divinity. Appaji with His compassion is teaching us the same, and making it so easy to grasp for all age groups with so many methods..We need to just follow one of the MMS’s to the core and we will realize the divinity in us.

    • tunga on October 11, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    the Divine incarnated as a human being is an overwhelming wonder, again and again. when I see sri swamiji speaking these shining words of truth it feels like a calling to the highest realization and a promise that it can be achieved. may we be able to follow our beloved sadguru in all gratitude and humility forever more.

    Guru shows how to become divine ~ 10 Oct 2012

    Man can learn only from a man, and hence God descends in the form of a Guru and teaches through a human body. In your Guru, you have your human idol of perfection. Our mind will readily be convinced that such a great soul is fit to be worshiped and revered. Through the Guru, man realises his divine nature. We should always remember that the nature of a Guru is unfathomable. A true disciple never judges HIM.

    Guru blesses, guides and inspires the disciple. HE transmits, transforms and spiritualises the disciple. The Guru teaches through personal example. The day-to-day conduct of the Guru is a living example to the disciple. By constant contact, the disciple imbibes the virtues of his Guru. This way the disciple is gradually moulded to perfection.

    Even though Guru appears to us in human form, it is a sin to consider HIM as a human being. Guru is God. Even HIS divine presence or company is elevating, inspiring and energizing. When we reads the holy “Guru-Gita”, we will come to know the greatness of Guru.

    The life of our Pujya Gurudeva is a living example to this MMS. Even from HIS childhood Pujya Gurudeva exhibited so much divinity. We need to imbibe and practice it for our spiritual growth. Are we all not blessed to be in the presence and guidance of our Pujya Gurudeva, who is Lord Dattatreya incarnate? We definitely are! Let us use this gifted life to learn and practice all that we hear and see from Pujya Gurudeva. I humbly beg Pujya Gurudeva to teach and guide us in becoming divine souls. Sri Gurave Namaha!!!

    • Nada on October 26, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Guru shows how to become divine – 10 Oct 2012

    Guru is very kind and divine! Out of compassion and mercy, this divinity descends in a human form and comes down to our level to show us the divinity in each one of us. He always only looks at the good in everyone, encourages them to blossom into divine beings. We humans, on the other hand, are always finding faults in others. The master is divinity personified. His mere presence makes the vicinity divine and energetic! We feel these positive vibrations and are drawn towards Him. It is because of the divinity, the purity in Him, that thousands come to Him from far and wide seeking solace, spiritual guidance, material happiness, and many even come for their love for music! Sadguru always tries to enhance the good qualities in us and bring out our true nature. We are all children of the one Supreme Lord. That spark of divinity is glowing in every one of us. The realization that we are all divine and we are all different forms of the same supreme spirit, is granted to us only by Sadguru’s grace! Let us all pray to our Adi Guru Dattatreya, Sri Swamiji, to enlighten us with this knowledge and show us the path towards this realization. Jaya Guru Datta.
