  1. Dear Auspicious (Sri) Mother (Mata)!
    Protect (paatu) me (maam) always (sadaa). Protect me through this lifetime (jivita). Protect me from my ego (asmita).. because whatever & whoever I see around me is only a reflection of what happens within me.. how I make sense of what happens to me.. my experience.
    The world I see is just the world I project from within (MMS78).
    Lalitha Sahasranama says you are Ïchha Shakti Gnana Shakthi Kriya Shakthi Swaroopini – You personify my will (ichha), cognition (gnana) & action (kriya).
    Thanks a million for incarnating as my Sathguru, Mother!
    As my Guru you personify & mirror my inner self. When am an integrated personality, I see you as One. When am divided within, I see you as many. My intellect is my Guru (MMS 310).
    Bless me that I look to you with the same Faith & Focus (MMS 309) with which a new born looks to his Mother. Let me hold your fingers as you cross the roads of life for me.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    By seeing today’s MMS 318, according to me the importance of following a Sadguru is very much needed for everybody , especially in this Kaliyuga . The Bhajan is very apt to this MSG since we pray to Mother Goddess ( Sri) to protect us through out our life time and also protect us from not developing ego. Here again our mind is the root cause for our every action and feelings. Therefore controlling our mind is the only solution to prevent us from developing ego. But it is not so easy for which we have to follow our Sadguru and develop our spiritual knowledge. When we follow Him, He will always reflect from our inner self and guide us in the right path and also guide us in our every action of what is correct and wrong. According to me here again, we should have a good faith in our Guru and not only that we should try to register our name in His heart. To register name in His heart is also not so easy for which as a devotee we have to follow his words and teachings and obey His command with out a second thought.Thank You Appaji to give such a nice MSG and always follow You and thereby please reflect in our inner self and guide us every now and then to control our mind and not to develop any ego also.

    Thank You Swamiji for showing us the way to getting closer to Your Lotus Feet. By reflecting our state of mind, You show us You understand us more than we could ever understand ourselves. As the Divine Mother, You understand the various states of our mind better than a biological mother can. I remember reading an experience of a devotee on where the devotee was relating her friend’s sorrows to get blessings for the friend. As the devotee began crying, Sri Swamiji began crying too. The state of purity and compassion in Sri Swamiji is not something we humans can possibly fathom. And because the human mind is so limited, we attribute our inner feelings to You thinking You are angry, or You are irritated or You are happy. You are Sat-Chit-Ananda, always in a state of bliss. Sathgurudeva, Lord Shiva, obeisances to Your Holy Lotus Feet!

    318. ఒక అద్దంలాగ నీ లోపలి వ్యక్తిత్వాన్ని ప్రతిబింబిస్తాడు సద్గురువు. ఓం కాళికాంబాయై నమః – ఓం ఐం హ్రీం శ్రీం కామేశ్యై నమః
    ‘నిన్ను నీవు తెలుసుకో” అని ఘోషిస్తాయి మనం చదివే ఆధ్యాత్మిక గ్రంథాలన్నీ. అద్దంలో చూస్తే మనకు కనిపించేది మన శరీరం మాత్రమే. మన గతాన్ని, మన సదాలోచనలను, మన కోర్కెలను, మన కుబుద్ధిని, మనలోని కుళ్ళు, కుతంత్రాలను, మనం చేసిన పాపాలను, మంచి పనులను, భావాలను, అద్దం మనకు చూపించదు. మన ఇంట్లోవారు, స్నేహితులు చూసేదీ, మనకు చూపించేది కూడా, మనం జల్లెడపట్టి వారికి వ్యక్తం చేసే భావాలు, ప్రవర్తనలే. మనం లోపల దాచుకున్న విషయాలేవీ వారికి తెలియవు. మనలను గురించిన నిజాన్ని తెలుసుకోవాలనే దాహం, ధైర్యం, ఎంతమందికుంటాయి? మనం గతంలో చేసిన తప్పులు గుర్తుకు వచ్చినా, మనం ప్రస్తుతం చేస్తున్న తప్పుడు ఆలోచనలను తలచుకున్నా, మననుండే తప్పించుకు పారిపోవాలన్న ఏవగింపు, జుగుప్స కలుగుతాయి ఒక్కోసారి. కానీ, ఎక్కడికి పోతాం? ఎక్కడికీ పోలేం. ఆత్మహత్య చేసుకున్నా, పాపం మరిన్ని రెట్లు పెరిగి, మళ్ళీ పుడతాం. సద్గురువు ఒక్కరే మనకు శరణాగతి. వారికి మనపై ఉన్నది ప్రేమ ఒక్కటే. మనలను ద్వేషించకుండా, చీదరించుకోకుండా, అసహ్యపడకుండా, మనపై తీర్పు చెప్పకుండా, ఉన్నది ఉన్నట్లుగా, మన మనస్సులను విప్పి మనలోని మంచి చెడులను నిష్కర్షగా మనకు చూపగల శక్తి వారికొక్కరికే ఉంది. చూపిన తరువాత అద్దంలాగ పట్టనట్లు గోడకు వ్రేళ్ళాడుతూ ఊరుకోకుండా, సద్గురువు మనలను ఆదరంగా చెయ్యిపట్టుకుని, తల్లి చంటివాడి ముక్కుచీమిడి తుడిచినట్లు, ముడ్డి కడిగినట్లు, మనలను ప్రేమతో శుభ్రం చేస్తారు. తమలో చేర్చుకుని దాచుకుంటారు. అదీ మన సద్గురువులోని గొప్పతనం. మనలోపలి జన్మజన్మల మురికి ఇంతా అంతానా? ఇటువంటి కరుణామయులైన జగన్మాత మనకు మరెక్కడైనా దొరుకుతారా? జయ గురు దత్త

    A mirror only reflects our physical body. It does not show us our inner thoughts and feelings, our hidden past, our shameful sins, our negative thoughts, or our nature which is less than perfect. It does not see them. It does not show them. Nor do our close friends and relatives. They know only the things that we choose to share with them. We alone know our deeply hidden secrets, or so we believe. There is one other entity in this world from whom we cannot hide anything. That is our Sadguru. There is no need for words, diaries, or autobiographies to reveal to him our past or our present good or bad thoughts and actions. He knows not only every single detail of this lifetime of ours, but also has a crystal clear picture of all our past lifetimes, our deepest secrets, and our carefully concealed negative traits. He sees them all. He shows them all to us, whether we have the boldness to acknowledge them or not. He does not stop there, like a mirror, that does not hesitate to show us our scars and physical stains. Like a loving mother cleans her infant child without showing any disgust, distaste, or aversion, He cleans us of all our accumulated filth over the past countless lifetimes. He cleans out past karmas by engaging us in worthy activities, cleans our present mindset through repeated teachings, and patiently regulates our every thought, word, and action going to extreme lengths, Himself setting us a perfect example. There are no words to describe the level of His compassion and the inexhaustible tenacity with which he handles His self-imposed responsibility to save the souls of his dear devotees. Jaya Guru Datta
