  1. {Delusion : Deception, Mis-conception, False impression, Illusion}
    Oh Young Man (manava)! There is such a lot to achieve (jaya) in this world. To make progress (vikas) is your greatness (vaibhava)
    Prahlada made quick progress, because he was clear & steady in his belief about the omnipresence of Narayana. So, when His father asked if Narasimha was present in the pillar, he did not have to think, before saying “Yes!”. And, Mahavishnu had to descend into that pillar. Imagine what could have happened if Prahlada was deluded!?
    Falling waters covered with foam & mist, reflect nothing. When desire disturbs a steady mind, it creates ripples which distort what they reflect.. Unlike a still & steady pond that renders perfect reflection
    Thankful pranams Jayalakshmi Mata!
    In the grace of our Sathguru, we have no reason for delusion. We’ll immerse ourselves in serving His cause, and reflect our way to realizing our true nature.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! Not this, not that..nothing I can see, taste, touch or hear is the atman… Help me withdraw my senses properly, to go inward in a way that leads me on the correct path. Help me surrender all illusions, please..Sri Guru Datta!

    GURU DEVA ,by serving you every one can easily Escape from this Delusion.

    • Venkat on February 4, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – if deluded, human cannot achieve anything as it strikes on the trust posed on an object worth the trust. Thats the reason why the Lord had to take so many different and differing forms defying His own boons given to the people who performed penance about Him. for humans to be not deluded, the expectation too has to be realistic, which can happen only when the person is desireless in the actions and is not expecting anything as a fruit. Sri Guru Datta

    My beloved SADGURU, how lucky we are! YOU guide us, YOU take us on YOUR boot, YOU teach
    us with wonderful messages, with wonderful music, with YOU as most wonderful example.
    One day we all will know and understand the true nature of the Atman.
    Thank YOU for YOUR unlimited patience.

  3. Jaya Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOOTA
    Thank YOU for this wonderful video and the blissful nature-image. Delude is the opposite of truth and truth is the nature of Atman. We pray to YOU APPAJI to guide us out of delude.
    Sri Guru Datta and much love <3
    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    • Archana Penukonda on February 4, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Delusion is the result of the maya enveloping us and this maya prevents us from seeing reality. Swamiji often gives the example of the onion. Swamiji says that His grandfather once explained to Him the reality of the Atman using the onion as the analogy. As you keep peeling the layers of the onion, there are more layers to peel, until you arrive at core, which is nothing. So, we build all these layers of attachment around nothing. Since I cannot understand the true nature of the Atman, I must be deluded. Through everything Swamiji is doing for us, He is trying to peel away the layers of delusion. Please bless us with the strength to strictly follow Your teachings and understand the true nature of Atman. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Jaya Guru Datta! More and more every day i’m thankful for being in Satguru’s fold, for His finding and rescuing me from the clutches of Maya or delusion, where the aims are worldly or non-existent practically! i can only pray to follow Him strictly and try to know my real Self or Atman. Om Sri Jayalakshmi Matre Namaha!

  4. Jaya Guru Datta. Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, without your help I cannot understand anything. You are the dispelled of ignorance and darkness. Only through You may I understand such sacred truths. I love you, I love you, I love you. Sri Guru Datta.

    Water falling as diamonds look as great information for the atma.

    JGD Appaji
    Because of our restless and jumping mind, we see the world only through the bubble of our projection. With Your immense love and compassion, please be with Us always, no matter how many janmas..We will always be loving You and following You…. one day that bubble will break forever and we will see the water fall clearly.. we will see the self in and around us perfectly.

    According to me, Appaji’s today’s MMS is more or less linked to MMS 181. That is if you wish to ponder—ponder about improving yourself in which case we will realize our principle of desire or life principle ( Atman). In otherwords if you have got a courage or confidence in our life, definitely , we can achieve anything in this world with in our frame work and that lead to greatness. That is what happend in the case of Prahalada. At the same time here now, our mind has got an important role in it. Therefore we should always keep our mind clean, MMS 192. Once our mind is clean with out any pollution , it will lead to concentration. Once we develop concentration, that will lead us to get will power and at one stage we can drive our mind. If we are able to drive our mind, we will not be deluded in our life and ultimately , we can show our ability and progress. But in this kaiyuga , it is not so easy to control our mind, since we are attracted in worldly pleasures and in unwanted desires and due to that we will be deluded in our life. Therefore to overcome this the only way is to follow the spiritual path through our Sadguru. This is because , He is the incarnation of Lord Datta Himself in this kaiyuga . Hence Appaji we got your concept and we follow your words and teachings sothat we can realize out true nature. The photography is very apt to the MSG and the music by Ganesh and Kumaresh in violin and voice from their Brahma 2 CD also apt to the MSG. JGD.

    One can attain a stage of mental equilibrium while remaining amidst the worldly turmoil by controlling the senses by not giving room to desire and by realising that the so called happiness it brings is after all a myth. We pray You Swamiji to bless us the wisdom to discriminate and sense of detachment towards transient objects.JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta, we are so blessed and are thankful for your constant guidance in freeing our mind from the maya and bringing us more closure to understand the true nature of Atman. Pranam Saguru

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!

    Sadgurudeva’s Discourse, Peethapuram, A.P. India,19-Jan-2003:
    You may get ill health. You may be sleepless because of family worries.
    Because the family tree, the family snake keeps you awake out of fear.
    Your attachment to relatives is sometimes overzealous. But they are the
    big seeds for delusion and disappointment.
    You are our Ram. You taught us Desire is Ravana and it disturbs a steady mind. We follow and practice all your words. Please help us to make quick progress. Please protect us from delusion. Kindly bless us to realise our true nature. We will follow you, Sadgurudeva.

    We will remember
    Principles of mind ( MMS 74,78), Peace (MMS 75), Desire & delusion ( MMS 79),
    The benefit of chanting Rama Nama (MMS 76), Desire deludes the mind (MMS 87),
    A perfect mind unlock the mysteries of life (MMS 109), It is the mind which is the cause of bondage (MMS 148)
    Mind should be always kept clean (MMS 192), There is no closer kin in the world than one’s own self (MMS 242),
    Persons who are deluded cannot understand the true nature of Atman (MMS 250)….

    Jai Guru Datta Puttuji_/\_!!
    Beautiful MMS – with Appaji’s Devi Navratri Darshan and with “Jaya Jaya Bhuvi Divi Manava”- Appaji’s 60th Happy Birthday song – Makes us visualise Sadgurudeva’s Vishwaroopa Darshan (after the 40 days Mandala Puja of Karya Siddhi Hanuman) giving the message to all the Manavas and to the entire Universe!!
    We are following You Appaji !!

    Om Sri Jayalakshmi Matre Namaha !! .
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    The medical definition of delusion is ” a strong belief or conviction in spite of solid evidence to the contrary”. Many don’t want to believe in God, many don’t want to believe in Sadguru, in spite of the Grace of Appaji which is so evident and so clear. We pray Appaji to clear all delusions from our mind and help us recognize the true Atman. The song “Jaya Jaya Bhuvi…..” reminds us of the 60th Birthday of Appaji.

    • on February 5, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! I suppose I will be deluded until the moment I achieve moksha. How can I know the true nature of atman before this? It will only be some kind of imagination. Appaji, please give me the strength to continue my path as quick as possible. Sri Guru Datta!

  5. The most beautiful waterfalls begin at Nature’s high points, giving us spectacular scenery not offered in any cinema! Nature in its pure form of water, an abishekam from Mother Goddess! How joyous i was standing underneath the energizing,exhilerating, refreshing powerful waterfall at Niagara Falls! But, nature can also cause illusion and trap us into delusion, if we are not careful to reflect within on the atman.
    Swamiji, Mata Jayalaksmi’s blessing and abhishekum to us, is forever energizing us and showng us the way to our atman..
    Here, seen in a stance from a Navaratri procession, gold cup above, Swamiji forever leads us within. If we keep our eyes upon HIM, we will see the most beatiful reflections of our true selves! And we will shine like the gold in His hands, which will make him Very happy!JGD!
    LOVE the MUSIC !!

    We all have soap bubbles in our mind and tell the others, it`s “the” reality, though it`s only a
    tiny segment, depending on the focuss.
    With a broad mind we could perhaps have a broad focuss and perhaps could get a glimpse of
    Atman`s nature.
    But instead, we are bubbling around, swarming like bees from one attraction to the next,
    but very often not being that effectful and useful like bees …

    In my view, the holistic principle in life can lead us to the essence , if only we were
    steady and quiet and clear, then also the soap bubble would grow larger and larger
    and in the end it would reflect the whole. Am I right ?

    • Joseph on February 19, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Person deluded cannot understand anyone and understanding true nature of Atman will be next to impossibility because understanding the true nature of Atman needs proper understanding about one’s own deeds and acceptance of the mistakes committed by oneself by action, speech or thought. This is possible only with the grace of God. May Lord bless us all to understand the true nature of Atman.
