  1. Planets are of various shapes & sizes, with satellites going around them. Central to energizing all of them, every moment – good & bad – dark & bright – is their best friend – The Sun.
    In his journey through this planet, man moves through times good & bad – scarcity & abundance. Goddess Saraswathi packs each of these moments with valuable learnings for those who want to open up to such experience.
    She bestows all knowledge (sakala vidya) & all prosperity (sarva sampath). She fascinates (sammohane) everyone with her grace. She is the Sun that enlightens & energizes all who care to stay around her.
    Pranams Deviswaroopa Sathgurudeva!
    You’re our dearest friend in times good & bad. You are our Ma Saraswathi who enlightens us, removing our ignorance. Therefore, to us labels like good & bad make no difference. We’re always happy to be of service to your cause.. and in the learning from that experience, we find our fulfilment
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta. It is wonderful to hear this and I love this beautiful video. Yes, You are my only true friend in all the situations of my life, dear Lord Swamiji You carry me, support me, guide me, transform me while I am going through the joys and sorrows of life. Unfortunately, too often, I forget it because my mind and my sense organs put a veil in front of my eyes. I pray for being aware of Your divine friendship each second. Sri Guru Datta.

    Saraswati gives Divine knowledge what gives stabilty in life. When the intellect is stable joy and sorrow has not that much influence.
    Thank you very much

    Jai Guru Datta, entire Brahamad is in you Gurudev. Koti Koti Pranams to you Sadguru. You are our dearest friend in all times. You are enlightening us with these daily messages, removing our ignorance, lifting our clouds. You give us a glimpse of your different swaroopas every day, none can compare to you. Pranam Ma Saraswati.

    • Vanaja on March 3, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    todays massage makes me happy and I get a warm feeling inside my heart. Dear Lord, let me be brave to open up for experience and integrate them by understanding. I bow down to Saraswati. May I have a steady mind and be not affected by good and bad. So called “god” and “bad” are two sides of one coin. May I appreciate the value of this coin and know I am not the doer – thank you for being always with me.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta! MMS #122 said “Divinity’s true form is selfless love”. We experience that with Swamiji. One of the Twelve Directives of Sri Swamiji says “Realize that God alone is your true friend.” I’ve been lucky enough to understand the transient nature of friendship with fellow beings. I’ve come to realize that Swamiji’s presence is constant and has nothing to do with His physical location. In victories, in doubts, in despair, in courage, in fear, in truth, in confusion, in vices, in our chores, in every moment of our lives, Swamiji is there, loving us, guiding us and protecting us. Incarnations such as Lord Rama and Lord Krishna show the nature of divine friendship as being constant and based on pure love. Swamiji embodies everything that friendship should be and in the process teaches us to be good friends with our fellow beings. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    • lilashah on March 3, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. Prostrations to our only true friend, Sri Swamiji/God/Self. I love you, I love you, I love you. Sri Guru Datta.

    Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha … Very true …May we be blessed with the strength to naivigate …

    • Dr S J Saikumar on March 3, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Highs and lows are inevitable in life, just like day and night and high tide and low tide. We pray Appaji to give us strength to bear sorrow and help us to be level headed during times of joy. Jaya Guru Datta.

    • karuna on March 3, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    Jai Guru Datta, Appaji…You are the best friend that anyone could ever ask for…thanks for always being there…sending and spreading love… Sri Guru Datta!

    Jaya Guru Datta! How true! And what greater friend can we have than Sri Swamiji!

    • Gilla Lalitha on March 4, 2013 at 12:10 am

    JGD Appaji – This is true and me and my husband experience in our lives. In times of trouble God alone will be with you and he will help you to overcome, just do not forget God. Thanks to Appaji for being with us in our odd times in life, please be withus for ever and ever – SGD

    • on March 4, 2013 at 12:38 am

    According to me through today’s MMS, Appaji is alerting us that in this Kaliyuga we should remember the existence of God is here in this world. Many people forget about this concept since they will be attracted more in unwanted desires in this busy world. But remember we can see the God here in the form of our Sadguru ,Who will be always with us in our every part of our life whether it is in our peak time or in the lower or in our happiness or in our sorrow, provided we should follow Him in all respects. Here follow means not only follow His words and teachings but also Obey Him what ever He commands with out a second thought. Further here I remember Appaji’s words saying that when the God has given this human birth, simultaneously , we have to face in our life both good and bad karmas. But when we follow our Sadguru, He will be always with us in both good and bad, and especially while in our bad karma , He will reduce the impact of the same by His blessing. This fact we should realize and take in the right spirit. The photography is very apt for this MSG, since when the Plannets move every now and then, accordingly we have to also face our karma. Similarly the music is also apt for this MSG , since the Goddess Sarswathi , Who gives us the knowledge, prosperity and giving full energy for those who stay with Her. Here our Appaji is like the Goddess Sarswathi for us , Who will be always with us, provided we should also follow Him in all respects. JGD.

    Absolutely true…. We can be in any mood and disturbances, only God can save us from all problems and improve our tolerance in facing all problems. May lord bless us all and be our friend in our life.

    • Sarumati on March 7, 2013 at 3:48 am

    It is very soothing and refreshing to realize, that all things in life what so ever,
    – good or bad – are all gifts of Mother Sarasvati for learning.
    So we can come closer to what is our Godly essence in life by experience.
    To feel the cosmic experience , as our Sadguru does,

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on March 12, 2013 at 11:30 am

    JGD Appaji
    When do we really really pray and ask for something? When we are in sorrow. Let us cultivate the practice of praying, thanking and sharing our joy with Appaji in our Happiness also.. then there wont be any sorrow at all in life.. for we will accept any situation as His gift and feel His presence all the time.
    As Kabirdas said ” Dukh me sumiran sab kare, sukh me kare na koi
    Jo Sukh me sumiran kare, tho dukh kahe ko hoi”
