  1. God keeps this Universe in its rythm. All celestial bodies stick to their orbits & within themselves behave in ways that are consistent to their true nature. In that predictability, Man finds his sense of mastery over them & his sense of peace in living his life. Man is blessed.
    How do we leverage such blessing? What fills our waking, walking, talking moments? Do we fill every moment with gratitude for the Creator? Or, are our moments full of vanity, pride & self centric manipulative actions? How & why do we do our puja? Is that too an act of pride & hypocrisy? If so, who are we manipulating? And to what end?
    Dear Dattaswaroopa Sathgurudeva,
    Koti pranams for this timely caution. We’ll engage in Datta Bhajan & keep our minds pure. We’ll keep away from damba (hypocrisy) & jamba (pride, arrogance). We’ll fill every moment with selfless service, dedicated to your cause. In that dedication we will find our fulfilment.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! God is everywhere, so wherever we may be, there God is. Sri Swamiji is asking us to remember that and to think about it as we go through our day…what thrills, what joy, what peace we may experience if we do! Sri Guru Datta!

    • Savitri on February 18, 2013 at 9:15 am

    It is very important to be always in contact with God, only then I can hear, when God is speeking to me during my day. For me Swamiji is also God and I try to be always in contact with Him. This is helping me much much!!!

    In ancient yugas, penance was stipulated for spiritual awakening. As yugas passed, Divinity realized that man was even more caught up in the web of samsara. So, for this Kaliyuga, our Datta Sathguru advocates Nama Smaran. Before a mother feeds her child, she will give him tiny bits of the food for him to taste it. Once the child likes the food, he’d be willing to eat more. Similarly, for us to understand the joy of chanting the divine names, we first need to start chanting, regardless of where we are and what we are doing. Once we taste the nectar of chanting, it’ll be easier for us to increase our sadhana. MMS # 127 said “Chanting God’s name strengthens the senses”. Chanting God’s name makes us aware of the divine presence of our Sathguru in our hearts. Swamiji instructs that we definitely pray at least for a few seconds during dawn, mid-day and dusk (at roughly 6AM, 12 noon and 6PM) each day, that prayers during these times are very effective. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    పీల్చే గాలి, తాగే నీరు, తినే ఆహారం, నివాసముంటున్న ఈ భూమి వీటిలో ఏది మానవుడి సొంతమూ కాదు, తయారీ కాదు. ఇవన్నీ భగవంతుడు ప్రాణుల మనుగడకు ఇచ్చినవే. తిన్న ఆహారాన్ని జీర్ణం చేసి శక్తిగా మార్చేజఠరాగ్ని కూడ శివుడేనని శ్రీస్వామీజి ఒక భజనలో వర్ణించారు. నిద్రలో, మెలకువలో అన్నీ వేళలో రక్షణ చేస్తున్నది భగవంతుడు మరియు సద్గురువు. ఆ భగవంతుడిని, సద్గురువును ప్రేమతో , భక్తితో ,కృతజ్ఞతతో ఎల్లప్పుడూ స్మరణ చెయ్యాలనే సందేశం బావుంది స్వామీజీ. భగవన్నామ స్మరణ మనఃస్సుకు ధైర్యాన్నిస్తుంది, కర్తవ్యాన్ని బోధిస్తుంది, తృప్తి నిస్తుంది. విద్యార్ధి దశ నుంచి ఆధ్యాత్మికత అలవరచుకుంటే మనుషులు బాగుపడి తద్వారా సమాజం బాగుపడుతుంది. సర్వేజనా సుఖినో భవంతు అనే మన ప్రాచీన సూక్తి నిజం ఎల్లెడలా పరివ్యాప్తం అవుతుంది. జయగురుదత్త.

    నోటితో నామస్మరణం చేయుచు నారాయణుని వేడుము
    లేస్తూ తిరుగుతు నడుస్తు దత్తుని నిత్యం మదిలో నిలుపుము
    కామం క్రోధం లోభం మదము
    కల్గినప్పుడు సచ్చిదానందుని తలుచుము సుమా !
    (స్వామిజివారి చిటికె సాహిత్యం నుండి)
    శ్రీ గురుదేవుల పాదపద్మములకు శతకోటి ప్రణామములు
    ఓం శ్రీ సద్గురుభ్యో నమః!

    What a nice advice, Appaji has given through today’s MMS, especially this is very much needed in this Kaliyuga .——–Remembering God at least for a moment before our every action in the life. Puttuji you have given a nice explanation also to this. This is because in God’s creation except the humanbeing , all others behave in ways that are consistent to their true nature only. But in our case, God has given proper sense, thinking capacity to make use of our life properly. Naturally comparing to other creations, we are so blessed by God for which we should not forget Him. But in this Kaliyuga it is not so easy since we are attracted by worldly pleasures and un wanted desires. Therefore we give more importance for them and in the mean while we may not think even for a moment about God, Who takes care for everything in this world. That is why our Appaji is asking us to remember about God daily for a moment before our every action at least. Here now how a teacher is taking responsibility to build up the carrier of a student, similarly our Appaji will take care for our growth in the spiritual path. At the sametime from our side it is our duty to obey Him what ever He say and follow His words and teachings strictly. Only through the spiritual path we can divert our mind , which lead to think about God also and do good deeds. Therefore Appaji we got your concept and follow your words and teachings for our benefit and to share with others also. The photography and the Bhajan on Lord Datta are very apt for this MSG since Datta means Gift. He is kshipra Prasadi in this Kaliyuga. JGD.

    Jgd.Chanting God”s name is the duty of Human, why be ashamed to Glorify the Creator.He responds to any Name.Anantanamnah, when we start the Glory of the Lord, another word or name is in Birth.He Shines the Worlds with His many Names, and He Appears in Many forms.He Is SACHCHIDANANDA.

    Jai Guru Datta, I will follow your commands with gratitude Gurudev. Pranam Sadguru

    Beautiful reminder, all of us need to understand and emphasize in executing this in our daily routine. By remembering God and chanting HIS name, inner strength and confidence is improved to face any circumstances of life. It is not about how we are leading our life, but it is all about how we perceive the circumstance and react to it. If a Doctor give anaesthesia and operates, that don’t mean Doctor has not performed operation, but it is only that we are under the shield of anasthesia and we will not suffer any pain. Similarly, by remembering God and chanting HIS name we are under protection of God. May lord bless us all with mind frame to chant and remember Almighty always.

    Sathgurudeva: Heart to Heart
    People often say they don’t have time, especially if it comes to spiritual practice. Still we find that same people indulge in quarreling, gambling, attending parties and attending to lawyers regularly. Some say that spiritual practice should be done later in life. Can any one predict the extent of life? There are others who expect immediate returns. “God, do this for me and I will perform a pooja”. They seem to forget that God gave them this birth for them to achieve something which is everlasting. Man is wasting time in trying to procure more and more material objects. This human birth has come to you after thousands of different births and to waste it in the way most people are wasting it is a crime against one’s own self.
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!

    Jaya Guru Datta!! Thank you appaji to make us to practice these kind of good things in our life.

    • JayanthiShankar,New Delhi. on February 19, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Whatever rituals, poojas, vratas we do we have to prepare our mind, body, items,dates etc. Remembering Guru all the time is the most easiest form of worship suitable to all mankind.No one need even know about it and once it is practised it becomes habit just like our breathing.What ever I pray is at the holy feet of my Sadgurudeva.Whatever I offer is also to HIS holy feet only.He is my Lord,God. Donot know anyother way to pray…/Jaya Guru Datta, Sri Guru Datta. Sacchidananda Sadguru Natha./

    • svetha on February 24, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    My beloved DATTAGURU, YOU give us so many possibilities to remember YOU! What touches me very much in this mms is that YOU say with YOUR affectionate voice, we should stop for a moment to remember God. You don’t tell us for remember God every moment, because YOU know, we are not able to do it.
    May we be able to remember GOD as much as possible.
    Thank YOU for YOUR goodness.

    • Vanaja on February 24, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    when I choose to read Swamijis book before bedtime (instead of a novel)
    when I choose to go for a silent walk (instead of going along making a phone call)
    when I choose to offer my food before eating (instead of going for fast-food)
    when I choose to watch the daily mms (instead of reading the news)
    when I choose to hunt for Swamiji (instead of going for amusement)
    – then I believe I am just doing the right thing: I do remember god.

    I am not the doer HE IS! Pranams to Sri Swamiji.

    Love – Peace – Understanding

    Om Nama Shivaya – Hare Krishna – Om Namo Hanumate Namaha –

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on February 26, 2013 at 2:25 pm
