  1. God presents himself to His devotees in various forms. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu saw Lord Krishna in the Ashoka Tree. We see the Lord in our Sadguru.

    Our ancestors said – Mata, Pita, Guru & God, meaning – Our Mother shows us our Father. Our parents show us our Guru. Our Guru shows us God.. gives us a taste of God.

    Narada did that to Ratnakara (Valmiki), provoking him if his parents will partake in his sin of thieving & killing. Ratnakara asked them that, and came back an enlightened man. Narada taught him the Rama Nama. He could only say mara mara mara.. but that was enough to get a taste of rama rama rama.. the Lord himself. The rest is history.

    His Holiness is doing that to us, introducing us to Nama Japa & Sankeertana. He wants us to experience the same joy that Chaitanya Mahaprabhu did when he saw Krishna in the Ashoka Tree. Only He can, because He is Krishna himself. Thanks a million, Sadguru for the higher taste. We are following you.
    Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji.

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji! What a beautiful video! It’s hard to express to those who have never experienced the love of a Guru the truth of this statement. Until they have firsthand experience of the Divine insights, journeys, possibilities and teachings our Divine master brings, they can never understand a statement like this…But once one opens his/her heart in devotion…well, it is a personal journey of revelation and love that can’t be described…with deepest pranams and gratitude! Love…

    Nobody can give us a taste from something which he has never experienced himself. But who has experienced in his body god? It is the sadguru. He has the full consciousness of God, He is always bounded with god with His consciousness. So He is like a bridge between me and God.

    Our Sadguru Sri Swamiji is speaking from his own personal experience, I am convinced. His mother Sri Jayalakshmi Mata, when she gave initiation to Satyanarayana at age 11, gave him an experience of God. He had the vision of the Universal form of the Supreme Soul. He had the experience of the Supreme Energy flowing through him. He definitely got a taste of God that night at the Hanuman temple in Bommeparti. Off and on during rare moments when I had completely lost myself, the experience came to me of an ecstasy that is indescribable, a taste of God, given entirely by the grace of my Sadgurudeva. At such moments, it felt like I knew what was meant by being ‘Unmatta’ – mad with ecstasy. Certainly our Datta Guru is ‘Aananda Daayaka’ – the giver of a taste of supreme bliss which is the same as a taste of God. Jaya Guru Datta

    JGD.Guru is the ultimate address for a devotee to submit his prayers.When this state of total surrender is achived Guru gives the dharshan in the form of God.When we read about the Avathara of Lord Krishna,Lord Dakshinamurthy,Jagad Guru Sankaracharya,Jayalakshmi Mata and SadGuru Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji,All of them are Teachers who have gave darshan as God.
    LONG Ago Late Sri Shadarshanam Somasundara Sarma Garu Teacher to young Appaji in Proddatur told about an incident.During one of his visits to Mysore,he accompanied Appaji on a tour of Dakshina Karnataka.At one Holy place both were lodged in a temple.Here His Holiness Appaji called Sri Somasundara Sarma Garu(appaji used to address him as Nannagaru nee father).Sri Sarma approached Him and payed his respects.Appaji asked him suddenly ‘what doyou want,a scholar of 4 Vedas Sri Sarma replied’Swamiji I have you what more I want?Then Appaji addressed him ‘Do you want to See Me?,when Sarma garu said yes’Lo!The Appaji disappeared injustice place stood Lord Dattatreya in all His Regal Splendour.Sarma Garu recited Veda sloka pleasing Dattatreya and His Holiness to withdraw the Viswaroopa.
    I Happened to know Sri Soma Sundara Sarma Garu,He is Kuchela of Lord Dattatreya.I gave him a cup of milk and asked How he experienced Dattatreya?Sarma garu replies ‘I can say the milk has Sugar,But I cannot show It.Jgd.

    Dear APPAJI,

    This Video is so nice, i like the photo of YOU <3

    Sri Guru Datta

    • Agastya Seikritt on September 21, 2012 at 11:02 am

    totally agree with this Puttuji, thank you so much for taking us from darkness to light, from death to immortality. JGD

    • on September 21, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    In this artificial world (Kali yuga), it is very difficult to find God. Vedas, Puranas, Homa and such practices are also very difficult.
    Our Dattavatara Nada Brahma in human form gives us the easiest method of Nama Japa & Sankeertana and we just follow Pujya Sadgurdeva, our Beloved Appaji and enjoy not only the taste of God, but blessed to be with God !!
    Sri Guru Datta !!

    • on September 21, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Thank you for making it very clear WHO our Sadgurudeva IS? Sri Guru Datta !!

    • Sivaram on September 21, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    This is 1000% true. Sadguru does the cleaning process to the disciple & shows the ‘right path’ for that person. This may vary person to person. We all had experienced the taste of GOD many times with the divine blessings of Sadguru Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji

    • annessa on September 21, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. Indeed this is quite true Appaji…
    Thank you.

    • Vanaja on September 21, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    I have seen Swamiji doing things that are just not “human”. His power is endless and so His capacity. His overview is undescribable and so the way he is managing himself and us. He is all knowing and all loving. No one ever gave me that look – His eyes are the eyes of god! Pranams to Appaji.

    • on September 21, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Jai Guru Datta Puttuji !!

    Though Appaji drenched Himself with water and is pointing out
    somewhere.?………… we can make out Our God !! We surrender and follow
    Sadgurudeva, Our God, and enjoy being with Him. Sri Guru Datta !!

  3. JGD. On the 22 Sept 2012 @ 7.00pm Devotees and other fortunate souls will get a taste of the sound of God. Sri Sadgurave Namah.

  4. JGD.Na Guroreadikam is the essence of Gurugeeta.So when Guru is everything,it is trivial that He alone can lead a saadaka for his ambtion in attaining the cherished goal.A midway is to know the Godliness in everything So guru gives the taste of GOD to His followers.SGD.

    • on September 21, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    God can be experienced through the grace of Sri Swamiji. Using our intellect, we are the subject and all what we see are objects. This thinking can not work regarding God. Because He is everything and everybody and much more we have no idea of. Thank You so much, dear Sri Swamiji, that You are here and give us a taste of God.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

    • rose sheppard webster on September 21, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Jai Guru Datta! Yes yes yes!!! We read You loud and clear, Appiji! Appaji’s expression is priceless in this video, by the way.

    • pushpa on September 21, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Thank you Appaji for giving me tast of God, but in fact i got taste of Appaji, as it it the same …. Prostrations to Sadgurudevas holy Feet;

    • Hema on September 21, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Sadgurudeva has given me many delicious tastes of god, so now I am addicted and the other tastes I used to like and not so flavorful to me anymore. I had the most sublime experience listening to Sri Guru Gita, such divine bliss can only come from God himself, our Appaji. My humblest pranaams at the lotus feet of the one who is lord of all creation. Jaya guru Datta. Om namo Hanumate namaha.

    • KUMAR GANAPATHIRAMAN on September 21, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Thanks Puttuji for this wonderful write up. We are blessed and enlightened by your explanation. Our Pranams to Sadgur Deva Om Namo Hanumate Namaha Jaya Guru Datta

    • Phani Prasanthi on September 21, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Jai Guru Datta. Sri Gurubyo Namaha. very beautiful message. In my opinion our Sad Guru Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Swamiji was a god. Millions of Pranams to the Lotus feet of Pujya Sri Swamiji.

    • on September 21, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Regardless of how many seminars I took, how many years I meditated thinking that I was on the sure track to God, it wasn’t until Sri Swamiji came into my life that I was shown the error of my ways. Through His guidance, I have incorporated His bhajans and prayers into my daily life and tried to pay attention to His words in order to stay on track. With this sincere effort, I have begun to see my Datta Sadguru as God. There is no other. Each little melody, each word reveals this to me.
    Thank you, Appaji. I pray to remain close to you always. Sri Guru Datta

    Profound, yet full of undeniable truth. Am sure each one of us will have at least one experience to state to support this MMS. For me, just being in this time and place as my Sadguru Himself, breathing in the same air is enough. i did taste and see God. I cannot articulate my thoughts well enough to write anything, because everything I say would only understate this MMS. Yes, Appaji, you alone can be God to me. You have lifted me from utter filth and cleansed me. Thank You forever for this gesture, because, today, am still molding myself to be what you want me to be. JGD. SGD.

    • Madhu Talwar on September 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    jgd You are there as Satguru You have given me The Taste of God i know You are “SATCHITANANDA”, my mind still wanders around for nothing (may be because of some previous birth’s impressions) it will get controlled by Your Mahadarshana , Naama Japa and Naama Sankirtana , All praises to You my Satguru onhn sgd

    • on September 22, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Jai guru Datta
    Yes we are all obey to this mms because sadguru appaji only made all of us follow god in all things in this world

    • Adriana Mohammed on September 22, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    I got a taste of God’s love just by looking at your picture in the water. It is a so strange feeling: sometimes I perceive you as my mother, other time as someone belong to my family. Looking at the picture of this message, I felt the love and desire to embrace that I feel only for my grandchildren….I love you, my Swamiji!

    • karuna on September 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    JGD Appaji…we have tasted Your Divine love, and compassion, Your protection, Your special guidance through Your patient teachings…not to mention Your Divine music, and incredible darshana…dearest sadguru…for us…You are no other than …the creator, the destroyer, the maintainer of all that ever was, is, or will be…pranams to Your Holy Lotus Feet SGD

    Sadguru alone can give us a taste of God – 21/09/12

    It’s true, experiencing the almighty is not possible without His grace. Sadguru gives the propriate direction to each one according to their receiving capability. Two people who like sweet may not like the same sweet, though the major ingredient is sugar and taste is sweet. Every one is special and different with their God gifted merits. According to the intellectual capacity, Sadguru alone can inculcate the presence, love and affection on omnipresent God

    • Radha from on September 24, 2012 at 3:23 am

    JAYA GURU DATTA! Only one example: The happiness, my beloved Sadgurudeva can give is in nothing to compare with the happiness normal persons can give. S.G.D.

    • S.Radhamani on September 24, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Yes. God has descended in the form of my Satguru, in appropriate time. This is monumental
    example as far as my personal life is concerned.

    • svetha on September 25, 2012 at 9:36 am

    SWAMIJI, DU tauchst aus dem Wasser auf und lässt Tropfen in mein Herz fallen. Und ich spüre DEINE Nähe und das macht mich glücklich.
    Und ich sage mit Puttuji: “Thanks a million, Sadguru for the higher taste. We are following you.”

    • sridevi on September 26, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Jai Guru Datta! Only our Sadgurudeva embodies this divine sweetness, this forgiveness, seeing the good always, this ever-giving, ever helping nature, this never ending light and bliss. This cannot not be found anywhere else because it is not from this world. As it is said in the Guru-Gita: God takes human form, calls himself Guru and wanders secretly on earth. We are so lucky to be allowed to lift the curtain of this secret. With gratitude and love

    • on September 30, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji,

    Pujya Gurudeva who is personification of Lord Dattatreya himself, every moment spreads godliness and make us experience the taste of god. Multitude of devotees with different tastes get to experience the divine taste of god in presence of our pujya gurudeva. Thank for such a beautiful MMS video message.

    Sri Guru Datta

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on December 21, 2012 at 11:37 am

    JGD Appaji
    To learn about any field we go to the person who is already an expert in that field..Simiarly, to taste and experience the Divine, we have to go to Appaji who not only has tasted the Divine but is Divinity Himself….
    Until we meet and experience Appaji, we will never realize what we are missing in life…We will then know that the life we have been leading is just mundane and tasteless.. He makes us realize the purpose of this life and also how to taste the bliss.
