  1. {Hiranyagarbha: Surya, Golden womb of all creation}

    The quest for truth triggers the inner journey for spiritual aspirants.

    In the material world, to get from Point A to Point B, one must first know the co-ordinates of A and B. If you don’t know where you are, you’re lost. If you don’t know where you want to reach, any road will take you there. If you’re walking in utter darkness, you neither know where you are, nor do you know where you are headed to. Surya illuminates that darkness, makes the journey possible

    In the inner world, if one has to experience the truth “Who am I ?”, that journey to Self-realization begins with Self-awareness. This journey is impossible for the ignorant. Illuminating that inner darkness is the role of a Guru

    You’re our light. You’re our symbol of truth. As we get started in this New Year, we pray you destroy our inner darkness & lead us to realize our inner potential

    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Thank You Appaji for a wonderful MMS. As darkness makes it impossible to navigate to any destination – light is needed. Light dispels the darkness. We heard in the same MMS’ and in Guru Gita from Pujya Appaji that the ignorance in us is the darkness and the light that illuminates the darkness and shows the way to us is the knowledge. The knowledge that takes us to the state of ‘SAT’, that is the truth. That is how the light is a symbol of truth and also a symbol of the ultimate truth that the light shows!!!Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta! You are the true inner light within us. Thank you for all the blessings that you bring us, for all the gifts– your music, Kriya yoga, the cultural programs, the amazing architecture, the stupendous sculptures, the millions of daily healings and messages you bring to thousands at once. You are a magnificent light in a world of tiny candles! Sri Guru Datta,

    What I should say about this: light is truth and it was always like it. I will always feel it like this.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Sri Swamiji is the sun for us. He radiates to us unmeasurable joy and bliss. It is simply there. If we see Him, listen to His concerts, reading His speeches, but also when being in nature we find Him.
    Even in a work college which i do not like so much i find Him teaching me a lesson.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah
    Sri Suryanarayana Parabrahmane Namo Namah

  3. Jaya Guru Datta. Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, I pray for illumination. May your light show me the right way to live. Sri Guru Datta

    • Praveen Nidumolu on January 2, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji – It is amazing that we cannot walk in the DARK in our own house that we lived for years! Similarly, Without the Light of your Divine guidance, we will still be groping in the darkness of this Life. With your radiant support, we don’t have to struggle and think about what is right or wrong anymore – there is only one path to follow. We will walk in your footsteps towards Sat-Chit-Ananda!

    Please make our hearts your permanent home, so your effulgent radiance will prevent us from falling into the trap of our ignorance. Forever grateful. Sri Guru Datta.

    On 2nd, day of this year, Appaji is making us to go further deep in to the spiritual path through this MMS. Puttuji, you have given a nice explanation also for this. According to me it is very clear that, we have to follow the spiritual path from our early part of our life itself especially in this kaiyuga for our peaceful existence through our Sadguru. Once we start to follow like that , the next stage is to develop our spiritual path.Then only we know our inner world and experience the truth about self realization and self awareness . At the sametime with out a Sadguru we cannot come out from darkness, ignorance to light. The photography and the music are very apt to this MSG since Surya illuminate and show the path from darkness . Similarly , Appaji we follow you and destroy our inner darkness and bring out to the light of truth. JGD.

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Appaji You are my light – my jyoti. You are showing me the way out of the darkness. You bring light in our life. You are Truth Yourself!

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Swamiji shining the light in the dark corners of our souls, where we have accumulated and hidden our unpleasant memories and actions. Whatever is there can only dissolve into light, radiance and truth. Slowly, but surely we are being purified and reminded of our clear, illuminated Nature.
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

    Beautiful MMS on the first day of the new year. I recollect one of the quotes of Sriswamiji ” be a ray of light where ever you go “. You are our ray of light Appaji and we promise You on this new year day that we follow the path shown by You. We pray You to shatter the darkness in our thoughts with Your illuminating rays of light. Our country has the banner of “Satyameva Jayate”—Truth alone triumphs.This is the promise that seers have given to mankind.Truth never fails us,because it is the light. It saves ultimately and commands everyone’s respect. JGD.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on January 7, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Mein geliebter SONNENGOTT, in der Form von Wissen, Wahrheit und Glückseligkeit.
    Von Herzen danke ich DIR, dass DU uns den Weg zeigst, dass DU unsere innere Dunkelheit zerstörst.
    Ich verneige mich vor DIR.

    • Archana Penukonda on January 24, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Jaya Guru Datta! I now understand the main reason why a lot of meditation techniques ask you to focus on candle light and eventually your inner light. Guru literally means One who drives way darkness. Such a Guru is the pure light of consciousness and a symbol of truth. Guru is pure as fire. Sri Swamiji is truth himself. When I turn on the light in my room, I can see everything clearly. Similarly, when I turn on my inner light, I will be able to see truth. Sri Swamiji, who is our inner light, has taken form as Sathgurudeva. He has taken form to show us the formless light, which otherwise would have been very difficult for us to see. Pranams at the Holy Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji who is striving to establish that light within each of us.
