  1. Says one cloud to another : I love you. I want our togetherness to last forever.
    Says one bubble to another : Floating along with you is such a pleasure. May our togetherness carry on for eretnity.
    Says one ripple to another : How nicely we resonate with each other! Let’s do this for a whole lifetime!
    Feels like laughing at them? Think..
    Our tenure in this earth is certainly longer than theirs. But then isn’t our future as unpredictable? And, do we not say the same nice things to each other, like they do above?
    Thankful pranams, Sathguru!
    You’ve made us realize the ignorance in expecting permanence in temporary relationships. We are not bubbles, ripples, or clouds. We will use our intelligence to experience the eternal bliss of immersing ourselves in seva at your lotus feet. We will start right now, for in the eternity of time, this janma is but a bubble. Bless us that we make the most of this bubble while it lasts.
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! This morning before opening this message, I was meditating on the koshas and how they are not the true self because of ther changeable nature and impermanence. Now this message that our relationships are also impermanent. But underlying all that is what does last, what is eternal. Knowing that there is that unchanging, blissful self that is at the heart of all takes the sting out of letting go of the illusions of love and sensual attachments. Sri Guru Datta!

  2. Jai Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOOTA
    This is right but the friendship and relationship to God and to our SADGURU is nitya.
    Sri Guru Datta and a lot of prostrations
    Om Namo Hanuamte Namaha
    Om Nama Shivaja

    Jai Guru Datta! God alone is our real friend! We are so blessed that He came down to us in human form.
    Prostrations to His Holy Feet

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – often read, heard and ignored is this sentence about travel friendships and the correlation to our life relationships. Thanks a lot Appaji for reminding me. Yoga Vashishtha deals with this principle in a great detail when Lord Rama Himself explains, critics, questions, understands and narrates the significance of this aspect. Jayaho Appaji

    if that’s true why is it so called responsibilities and duties are fixed which later named has karma being enforced on individuals ?

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji,

    Thank you for the message. It is really very awakening.
    Om Namo Hanumathey Namah.

    • Madhavi on March 7, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. Thank you for this reminder, dear Appaji! To be aware that relationships are temporary allows us to have more inner distance as well from difficult ones as from beautiful ones. That way we learn to identify less with our feelings. Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah
    It is our travel on earth. How great that we can come to Sri Swamiji. His Love is everlasting and so beautiful.

  3. Jaya Guru Datta. Only the relationship with Self/Swamiji/God is permanent. I love you Mother. Stay with me always. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jai Guru Datta. Please bless us to make most of this bubble. Let our Bhakti increase everyday. Pranam Sadguru.

    What a nice teaching ,Appaji has given today through this MMS. Puttuji , you have also given a good explanation about the cloud, bubbles and ripples as seen in the photography which is very apt for this MSG. They think what ever they do or in their action are permanent out of ignorance. In otherwords they are unable to realize the real truth of their tenure. At the sametime as humanbeing , our’s is always longer. Here again Appaji is reminding us that we should think to their level, since our relationship with others are also not permanent , and which is only temporary especially in this Kaliyuga . Here I remember, Appaji’s words saying that, when we follow Him as our Sadguru, so many relations will leave us due to their ignorance in the spiritual path. In this connection I have got my own experience , which iam not bothered since I realize my relationship with Appaji is only permanent and thereby iam very happy also. Therefore we should realize in this Kaliyuga our relationship with Sadguru is only permanent and not with others. This is because Appaji only protect and guide us in our life as Father, as a Mother and as our Guru. At the sametime as a devote, we should also follow His words and teachings and obey Him , what ever He commands with out a second thought. Thank you Appaji to remind us in this world our relationship with You only permanent and not with others. Accordingly we will also do our seva to your mission with in our capacity. JGD.

  4. Jaya Guru Datta Appaji !! What an eye opener !! Even though we listened to this several times from Appaji, it has a special impact and influence on mind when it appeared on Nandana SGS MMS.Thank you for the message on which we require to ponder over and practice very strictly !! Pranams to Sadguru Deva !!

    • Gilla Lalitha on March 8, 2013 at 8:10 am

    JGD Appaji – Let the relationship with our Guru-Appaji be permanent and let it continue life after lives. We are not worried about the human relationship which is like travelling friend as said in the MMS who will part once the destination is reached – SGD

    • dr.kodanda ram reddy on March 8, 2013 at 9:24 am

    jayagurudatta puttuji, sashtangapranams at lotus feet of poojya swamiji, poojya swamiji is reminding us again detachment, most of our friendship and relations will be changing on circumstances are all temporary, our relationship with sadgurdeva only the permanent, who is protecter always, we pray again and again to bless us to keep us at poojya swamiji,s lotus feet, om namo hanumathenamhaa

    • Archana Penukonda on March 9, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Thank You for this beautiful analogy, Swamiji. Just as I like to accommodate someone and overlook little things to make my travels smooth, I should go through life remembering that it’s yet another journey this soul is undertaking. I am not here forever. True, this life is much like travel, except I wouldn’t have known much about what my final stop is. Luckily though, as part of the Datta family, all I need to know is that Swamiji is my destination. I’ve met, seen and interacted with many people from the moment I was born and much like with fellow travelers, people have come and gone. This life is a bubble, and just as a bubble perhaps believes it lasts forever, the human mind deludes us too. With the grace of Swamiji, may I always remember that this life is just a bubble – just as vulnerable to disappearing and I’m just traveling through this planet for now. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    During our travel from one dimension to another … perhaps … we will be able to keep this
    divine spark of individual being, consisting of all learning processes , as our treasure.

    Perhaps our diamond of good will, helpfulness and courage will sparkle as much as those
    of our friends with whom we have gathered a lot of experiences in all dimensions.

    Perhaps we will recognize each other on our journey, by our radiating essence? May be . . .

    • Vanaja on March 10, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    friendships are important – but todays mms makes me understand that they will not be forever.
    May I give my time to maintain a good relationship in my heart to my Sadguru.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Maurice Clarke on March 11, 2013 at 5:38 am

    JGD. May we always remember the temporariness of relationships an so may relationships serve their highest purpose in drawing us closer to the Goal. JGD.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on March 12, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    JGD Appaji
    We need to realize that all these relationships may seem permanent but are temporary. No one accompanies us after death. No one dies with us..we keep on breathing and living even if someone close to us dies. The only constant companion throughout our janmas is Appaji. We need to make sure our relation with Him becomes more closer and closer by following His teachings. We need to be in selfless service so that we are ensured of His company through all our lifetimes.

    • madhu talwar on March 19, 2013 at 10:10 am

    jgd O!Vayu Deva, You are one of the Guru’s of Datta Avadhoota may i learn and practice the discipline of detachment. Every thing in this world is changing always, all of us are on a journey no relation is there for ever except with our Own Self. Om namo Hanumate namaha sgd

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!
    Kalatram dhanam putrapautradi sarvam Grham bandhavam sarva metaaddhi jatam
    Gurorangripadme manaschainaalagnam Tatah kim tatah kim tatah kim tatah kim
    Sri Guru Ashtakam -2
    With wife, wealth, children and grand children , the house looks like nanda gokulam. Why they love you so much ? They Love your money ,”DHANAM MERU TULYAM” is the real thing . One man has a big chain of precious stones and his inheritors will be only waiting for his death . Our relationships are temporary like flies gather around jaggery? wealth, mansions ,education, strength, influence all these are there and so they approached you . Will anybody look at you without those possessions? There is no selfless love at all in the family .God has made it so, just as one sugarcane yielding sweetness to the other.

    So first your mind has to be completely focused and concentrated upon Sadgurudeva and His Holy feet .Then all these things will look all the more delightful and beautiful .Not only that even detachment becomes easier.
    Eka eva paro bandhuh visame samupasthite
    Nissprha karuna sindhuh tasmai Sri Gurave Namah !! Guru Gita -60
    Guru alone is our true relative. The relation with Guru extends for the past so many births, hence it is permanent. So Guru is Adi Guru and Anadi Bandhu (the oldest kin). Obeisance to such a Guru.
    Tvameva mata pita tvameva, Tvameva bandhu sakha tvameva,
    Tvameva vidya dravinam tvameva, Tvameva sarvam mama deva deva .
    Surrendering at the Lotus Feet of Sathguru without waiting for all desires to finish.
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    • svetha on April 20, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, does that mean: the only possible not temporary relationship is with GOD, because SHE is the only eternal truth?
    I thank YOU for this message.
    Humbly I bow down at YOUR Lotus feet

    • Joseph on May 25, 2013 at 8:29 am

    Life itself is temporary, but only problem being that this truth is not remembered always and all circumstances. Let us all lead a life that Jesus will love us. May God bless us.
