  1. Music has no religion, no caste, no creed. Truly secular, music influences humans, animals, plants & the clouds
    The Name of God is as powerful as the God principle. Ratnakar (Valmiki) was transformed from a sinner to a saint simply by chanting Mara Mara
    When Nama sounds so melodious, it is chanted for its own sake, without caste or creed labels. So too, how many genres of sankeerthana we sing in our hearts without knowing which caste or creed they come from!
    When Nama & Sankeerthana blend, they delight the inner spirit.. across geographies, cultures & generations
    Pranams Gurudeva!
    Several decades ago you blessed us with the prayer “Shiveti Shoureti” in which you said “Tameka devam charanam vrajamaha”. What a grand secular vision you held for the human spirit, and how beautifully you have realized that vision, through Namasankeerthana! We are so fortunate to benefit from such nadopasana. Keep giving us more of it!
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! This is the greatness of Sadgurudeva Sri Swamiji that He is a messenger of universal divinity, attracting people from different faiths. The universal prayer hall at ashrama is not only beautiful but also uniting. At home in the West, this sometimes helps me when talking to critical persons. The openness reduces the fears of people who are not familiar wih Appaji. I admire Appaji’s efforts to bring together various religions, inviting e.g. Muslims, Sikhs etc. to ashrama and honouring their faith. This is true universal brotherhood. And how wonderful are His creations in music. Thousands of bhajans, kirtans etc. with a deep meaning and powerful. I’m very happy that Appaji is a Nada Yogi. I almost only listen to His music, for years now. Most of the times, I don’t want to listen to anything else. Sri Guru Datta!

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah
    To sing along with Sri Swamiji gives us so much joy! It fills our inner being with Divine bliss. We can always have Sri Swamiji’s bhajans in our mind. Wherever we are, wherever we go. And we can be happy to feel Sri Swamiji in our heart.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Namah Sivaya

    Jaya Guru Datta! This weekend I have been staying with some devotees away from my home. In their puja room, they are playing Shata Shloki and other Swamiji CDs continuously. The room where I have been sleeping is right next to the puja room and I can hear the CDs. This has been very comforting and last night I was resting in bed enjoying listening to Sri Swamiji’s OM CD as it played in the puja room. At least that’s what I thought. Today, at our event, we were selling Swamiji’s CDs. My hostess was telling someone she had just bought the CD yesterday, but hadn’t heard it yet. I was very puzzled, because I knew I had been hearing it in my room. I asked her about it and she assured me she had never heard the OM CD! What to think? When we came home they double checked the iPod to see if by chance the OM CD was there. But it wasn’t. Was Swamiji with us chanting OM in their prayer room? I hope so….Only Swamiji can blend the mundane and the secular in this way… Sri Guru Datta!

    • Dr S J Saikumar on January 20, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Appaji has always given paramount importance to Namasankeerthanam. The energy we get from listening to Appaji or by singing in our own Ashram keeps us going.

    • Archana Penukonda on January 20, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Sri Swamiji is one the biggest advocates of all time for Namasankeertan. The ending mantra “Om Namah Sivaya” reminded me of the fact that our Sathguru is none other than Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is always immersed in meditation. Yet, He is present everywhere in every atom and is always watching over every being. Our Sathguru is lovingly teaching us Namasankeertan so that we can eventually get to the state where we are immersed in divinity like Lord Shiva is.

    MMS # 222 says that praising God in song leads of meditation and knowledge. Meditation and knowledge are part of every religion. So, Namasankeertan is secular. We can sing any bhajan, it will only increase our love for God. When I sang Catholic hymns in the convent I went to (when I was growing up), it left the impression that God was great, there was nothing Hindu or Christian about that God. Sri Swamiji’s Namasankeertan attracts people of all religions and faiths, because God really is one and He speaks through our Sathgurudeva. That experience of “One God” has been gaining more strength over the years due to association with Sri Swamiji. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Praising the God in the form of Namasangeerthana itself leads to great devotion. But here our Appaji’s Bhajans are quite peculiar and it is not possible it classify it as anything. When we say about Bhajan , there are lot of different types are there in the world. To my knowledge , I have heard different type of Bhajans. But our Appaji’s Bhajans are very different from others . This is because each Bhajan contains the seed letter( beejakshra) which is very powerful and it helps to heal and cure the disease. Secondly these Bhajans are based on classical ragas only which will help us to get more concentration and can control our mind to a great extent. As myself involving in Bhajans , I have got a good experience on it . Even at tha age of 72 , due to Appaji’s blessings only , iam able to sing Bhajans regularly and He has told me to continue the same till my life is there. I feel when we sing Bhajans , it gives a good energy as wellas it is like a dialysis procedure means, feeling purifying our blood itself. Now day by day Appaji is refining the Bhajans and it has become a Yogasangeeta which help many people to heal their disease and getting mental peace. This isbecause Appaji himself is a NadaYogi and NadaBrahma. In this kaiyuga Namasangeerthana is the only easiest way to reach God which even Adi Shankara has also told and our Appaji is following the same method . That is why in today’ MMS , Appaji has told through Namasangeerthana , one can attain in spiritual permanently .Therefore Appaji we follow your words and teachings and develop Namasangeerthana for our benefit especially in this kaiyuga. Thephotography and the Bhajan are very apt for this MSG since both Lord hanuman and Siva are involved in this aspect will give us peace, blessing and protection. JGD.

    JGD Appaji – Thanks to Appaji for giving us thousands of bhajans to listen, chant and enjoy the music. Bless us to chant and chant swamijis bhajans everyday. Tamasvin Karya Niryoge Pramaanam Hari Sathama Hanuman Yatna Maasthaya Dukkakshaya Karo Bhava – SGD

    Jai Guru Datta, Sadguru your Bhajans in your melodious voice are simply divine. I wake up listening to them and at night fall asleep listening to them. Pranam Gurudev for blessing us with your Bhajans.

  5. JGD.Namasankeertana is the lone medium to unite people,not only,also other living beings.So,there comes secular approach,beyond reservations and restrictions,as said by Our APPAJI.SGD.

    • Vanaja on January 21, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Namasankirtana is very beautiful and it gives peace to the mind. Although my voice is not very melodious and nether I am talented in singing – around Swamiji I learned a little bit to follow the music and try to sing along. I lost my shyness of opening my mouth. I learned to be happy by doing Namasankirtana because it touches the heart. Swamiji’s Kirtans are incomparable!
    Pranams to Appaji
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Maurice Clarke on January 21, 2013 at 4:54 am

    JGD. The music played in that MMS is comes from my first Swamiji cassette and is my introduction to Nama Sankeertana. It is a start of a very long list of favourite pieces played by Swamiji. Impossible to fully say thanks but do accept my gratitude. JGD.

    నామసంకీర్తనలోని మాధుర్యాన్ని ఈ శతాబ్దపు ప్రజలకు రుచి చూపించినది శ్రీస్వామిజి మాత్రమేనని ఖచ్చితంగా చెప్పవచ్చు. ఇదివరకు భక్తి సంగీతమంటే రేడియోలో ప్రోద్దున్నేవచ్చే భక్తిరంజని లేదా కొంతమంది విద్వాంసులు పాడే త్యాగరాజ కీర్తనలు. అవి సంగీతంతో పరిచయం ఉన్నవారికి తప్ప అన్యులకు అంతగా పట్టనివి. కానీ సంగీతలోని లోతులను, మాధుర్యాన్నిపండిత పామర రంజకంగా తమ గానంతో, రచనలతో,స్వరరచనతో విన్నూత్నంగా నూతన పరిచయం చేశారు శ్రీస్వామీజి.భగవన్నామాన్ని భక్తితో, ప్రేమతో ఆలపించి అభ్యాసం చేయించే ఈ విధానం అద్భుతం స్వామీజీ.ఇది మీరు మాకు ప్రసాదించిన ఒక యోగం. విన్న వారికి మానసిక ఉల్లాసం , రోగగ్రస్తులకు ఒక దివ్య ఔషధం. అన్య మతస్తులనుకూడా ఈ సంగీత భాషతో పలుకరించి మన దత్త కుటుంబంలోకి ఆహ్వానించారు శ్రీస్వామిజి.నా కుమారుడికి “కీబోర్డు” మాస్టారు క్రైస్తవుడైనప్పటికి శ్రీస్వామీజి సంగీతమంటే చాలా ఇష్టం.నాలుగైదు కీలతో ‘కీబోర్డు’ మీద భలేగా కంపోస్ చేస్తారని ఆయన అన్నప్పుడు నాకు చాలా గర్వంగా అనిపించేది.కులం,మతం, భాష, ప్రాంతం అనే ఎల్లలను తమ సంగీత భాషతో చెరిపి వేశి భగవంతుడు ఒక్కడేనని,మనది వసుధైక కుటుంబమని శ్రీస్వామీజి ప్రపంచానికి చాటారు.

    Jai Guru Datta Puttuji _/\_!!
    Beautiful Secular MMS – Rudravatara Naada Aanjeya Swami and Siva Swaroopa Sadgurudeva darshan with Scintillating “Sankara Siva Sankara Siva ” Nama Sankeertan makes us go into deep meditation.!! Awaiting Super Shivaratri !!

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji _/\_!!

    Everything that our Sadgurudeva undertakes is a part of His novel Universal plan for uplifting devotees. Magnificent “Universal Prayer Hall” was built in the Avadhoota Datta Peetham in Mysore where people without any distinction of caste, religion, race, or gender can come together under one roof to offer prayers. It is also “University Prayer Hall”.
    This gesture reveals how Sri Swamiji treats everyone as equal. One example is the prayer that is rendered for the past three decades daily in unison by thousands of voices in the Universal Prayer Hall is called “Universal Prayer”. This prayer/namasankeertan transcends selfishness.It rises above distinctions. It goes beyond the categories of caste, religion, race, gender, and color. This is offered for the welfare of the world.The oneness of God is presented in these nine verses.
    When oneness is realized, a broader mental outlook develops. Broad mindedness helps society. Appaji has blessed us with numerous Bhajans,SSR, Hanuman Mantra and the list goes on ……..

    We will follow our Master’s Divine voice !! Sivaya Gurave Namaha !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    Semi frozen ice particles form geometrical patterns, when influenced by good sound.
    The more harmonious the sound, the more beautiful the patterns.
    This has been proved by scientists and it shows me the close relationship between sound and matter.
    Therefore prayers, good music, Namasankeertana and even good speech are so important in our lives.
    I was very moved to see this video. Siva`s Dance !

  6. Music is divine, one of the path to reach almighty

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on January 31, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    JGD Appaji
    The power of Namasankeertana can be experienced by listening to Appaji’s music. The divine changes and transformation that happens in us is amazing. Not only inner transformation, it helps us to make good moral and ethical decisions in the outer world too.

    • svetha on February 2, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    My beloved SHIVADEVA, what a wonderful MMS!
    This bhajan is very special for me. Hearing it, I remember a lot of experiences I had with it.
    So this bhajan expresses for me just what YOU say.
    I thank YOU heartily for bring this in my consciousness.
