  1. {Despicable: Extremely unpleasant; dreadful; wicked; shameful; disgraceful; opposite of admirable} {Hinaseva: Attendance on low people.. people driven their lower nature} {Kartavya: Duty; Worth doing}
    A man is known by the company he keeps. Like the straw used to tie jasmine flowers smells of their fragrance, human nature is very contagious. So, if we want our minds to be pure & positive, we must despise the company of low natured people. We must.
    We must. Because, Lord Shiva loves the company of the pure & the pristine.. so much, that when Lord Yama (kalakaalan) approached Markandeya, the Lord broke (murida) the rope (pasa) of Lord Yama. He loved his sincere devotees so much that he even swallowed poison (Nanjunda) for their sake.
    Pranams Sadguru!
    It is a short life, in a small world. We realize we can’t afford to waste our time (kala) in the company of despicable people. Thanks a ton for the caution. We follow you.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Om Namo Hanumate Namah! Thank You, Hanuman-Datta, for always protecting me. You alone are my light and my guide and my guardian in the night. Jai Guru Datta!

  2. Jai Guru Datta
    I hope I will realize a despicable person and his company, to follow YOUR important advice. Thank YOU APPAJI for YOUR amazing help. Love YOU so much <3

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Namah Sivaya
    From our experiences we know how harmful it is for us to keep company with a despicable person. Sri Swamiji helps us to clean ourselves from the bad influences of such people and warns us to make the same mistake not again. We are deeply grateful for His grace.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Ugraya Namah

    • Dasharatha on May 22, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Dear Appaji, I believe I understand your warning, but I have one doubt. Should we at all look at a person as despicable? Shouldn’t we rather love every being since it is God’s creation? Probably it only seems to be contradictory. Is it rather meant for teaching purposes on a certain level? Jaya dharma! Sri Guru Datta!

  3. Jaya Guru Datta. I love you Mother. You are the best association. I pray for satsang and to have the knowledge and devotion to follow this MMS. Om Namah Sivaya. Sri Guru Datta.

    By seeing to day’s MMS 357, according to me Appaji is alerting us not to have company with despicable person. In otherwords , Appaji is asking us to develop sathsang and move and company with only such kind of good people.( sajjana ) But in this Kaliyuga , it is very difficult to identify , who is good and bad. This is because in today’s busy world people are more attracted in unwanted desires and pleasures . To attain this they may go to any extend of level. Naturally most of them have no time to think about developing sathsang and to have company with good people. Here our mind also is responsible to certain extend. If we are in a position to drive our mind , then it will be easier to identify who is good and wicked. But again to drive our mind it is not so easy unless we follow a spiritual path. To follow the spiritual path we need our Sadguru , Whose teachings, words and advice to be listened properly and carefully. If we follow like that , definitely , we can easily identify who is good and bad. The photography and the Bhajan are apt for this MSG , since how Lord Siva saved markandeya from Yama due to his pure devotion. This means the God will always be with good people only. Thank You Appaji for alerting us not to have company with despicable person and learn from you to develop sathsang and to have company with good people. JGD.

    Om Sri Sadgurubhyo Namaha!

  5. JGD Since it is better to be alone than to be in the company of a wrong person,I take this oppurtunity to pray to Sathgurudeva ,to bless us with good company wherever it may be,and to give us the strength to withdraw from the unadvisable company,it becomes more difficult when they happen to be our own people,Appaji,show us a way and be with us as our strength,Om Namaha Shivaya Sathgurave namaha.

    Your company is the only company worth keeping, Sadgurudeva, if not possible in person physically, at least mentally, always. All humans have flaws. Some show some worthy traits and yet, when closeness develops, their negative traits reveal themselves. Please fill my mind always with thoughts of you and you alone. All Datta devotees are journeying on the path to perfection under your guidance, but have not reached there yet. Even some of their weaknesses could rub off on me if I keep their close company. Please bless me with your company exclusively and lead me on the right path. My fervent prayers to you. You yourself have said in Kriya Yoga class that a spiritual seeker should have no friendship with anyone other than Guru. Jaya Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta. “Our Farther … save us from evil,” and take us please to thine kingdom everlasting. Jaya Guru Datta.

    Jai Guru Datta.
    Our Sadgurudev has blessed us with Datta family whose company we can keep and enjoy. Thanks Appaji. Om Namo Hanumate Namaha.

  6. jgd ‘Prathama bhakti santana kara sanga’ (first type of devotion is to be in the company of saints) may i simply follow these lines from Sri Rama Charita Maanasa and lead my life singing the glory of Satguru my God, thank You Swami ji for Your suggestion onhn sgd

    • Joseph on May 24, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Timely reminder, type of companionship always matter. Like water, Sun, air are essential for growth and nourishment of a plant similarly company plays a vital role in moulding a person’s outlook. One, who intends to be in spiritual path, should always be aware of his or her company. May lord bless all with association of noble people who will always guide and help us to be in the right path.

    • svetha on May 28, 2013 at 9:18 am

    My beloved SADGURU,
    thank YOU for this advise.
    Humbly I bow down to YOUR Lotosfeet.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on May 29, 2013 at 12:28 am

    JGD Appaji
    I just need Your company physically or mentally to be happy and blissful. I do not know who is despicable or good.. or how many despicable qualities I have. Only Your music, Your name can kill the despicable qualities in me or around me. Playing SSR or Bhajans continuously creates positive energy in and around me.

    Om Namah Sivaya. Thank you for your advise and I pray to you, beloved Sadgurudeva, that from your glorious, unlimited resources you will empower me, for being true to my one’s nature and following a path that is conducive to positive growth and inner authenticity it is the only path that will connect me to the truest form of happiness, peace and fulfillment.
    Koti Koti Pranams at Your Lotus Feet.

    This dictum of Swamiji is again a most veritable saying and golden verdict,
    how aptly said. Only by His Holiness’ Mercy we will be able to distinguish the
    despicable from the Good. Such is the tact of those despicable ones. Even this
    takes a longer time. Pranamams to Swamiji. Always hum the Datta stavam and the
    compositions of The Avatar.
