    Evam gurupadam sreshtam devanamapi durlabham
    haha huhu ganaiscaiva gandharvairapi pujitam !!

    Millions of Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Our Vishnu Sadgurudeva !!

  1. Vishnu incarnated as Kurma (tortoise) in Satya Yuga. When devas & asuras churned the ocean of milk with serpent Vasuki as rope & mount Mandara as churning shaft, Mandara started sinking into ocean bed. Kurma supported Mandara on his back.. until Lord Dhanvantari emerged from ocean, with nectar of immortality. Our Sathguru is Kurma, supporting the churn in our minds, until nectar of self-realization materializes from within. In material world, He supports the churn that leads us from confusion to clarity. He cleanses our sins, washes our guilt, quenches our thirst for gnana, nourishes our resolve.. Like how water cleans, washes, quenches, nourishes, drenches. Imagine life without water.. without Sathguru. Both are indispensable. We aren’t sure of water, but sure of Sathguru.. for, He takes charge of next 7 generations of His devotees. He’s Venkatesa, on a mission to preserve humanity in Kaliyuga & beyond. Dear Indispensable Gurudeva, Keep us drenched in your grace, always.

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji, what a beautiful reminder of the necessity of Guru this morning! How little we know about the power of Sadgurus and how they are working to protect us! Quietly, without recognition, being present to heal, prevent, promote, support, create, establish;;;every possible action that will help maintain dharma and prevent our ignorance from destroying us and our world…

    The humanity needs something which gives orientation. It is like by little children: they need the parents which say at them what is good and what is bad. When parents don’t make this, the children have no orientation and are not able to live in a society. The humanity must live in a manner, which allows also the generation later to ive on this planet a good life. But how they must live, that it fonktion? Guru is telling it and also helping, that mankind understand.

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. Such a beautiful message I have no words to describe what this means to me…
    You are so dear to us all Appaji, thank you for caring and look after us…..

    • Indumati on September 13, 2012 at 9:22 am

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Dear Appaji,

    Like the life-giving water, the SADGURU brings light to the gagging souls and so he works for the Dharma and the Humanity. Nobody else has such a light to enlighten others.

    We can’t even imagine how directionless this life would have been without the eternal presence of Sadguru. Sadguru is indispensable for a meaningful journey on this planet. We are all very blessed to be with You, Appaji. Our prayers,… please chisel us, cleanse us, reform us and make us just the way we are supposed to be, Appaji. Pranams to Your Lotus Feet. Om Sri Venkatesaya Namaha. Sri Guru Datta.

    • rose sheppard webster on September 13, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Swamiji is not only life-giving water, but light-giving sun. Without the light of the Sadguru there would be only darkness and confusion. There is no happiness that can compare to the joy of knowing we have a Sadguru like Ganapathi Sachchidananda. we love our Sadguru!!!

    • laxman on September 13, 2012 at 10:40 am

    yes without sadguru life is like a desert/dry

  2. JGD. Its a Divine Truth, as Great Civilizations ONLY flourished near Water Sources realizing it to be Vital and indispensable for a Sadaka Sadguru is the Only Source of Divine nectar to flourish in the Spiritual & Material World.

  3. Jgd .. Very nice simile between the life sustaining water and the life giving Sadguru .. Water quenches our thirst on drinking it , but Sadguru’s darshan increases our thirst for spiritual betterment .. Every time we have Sri swamiji’s darshan , it’s a new experience , new aspects to learn .. It is this learning and the excitement of meeting Sadguru the next time that adds meaning to life .. Pranams at Sri swamiji’s lotus feet.. Jgd

    Sadguru pervades every droplet of water, everywhere.
    Thank you Puttugam.

    • KUMAR GANAPATHIRAMAN on September 13, 2012 at 11:59 am

    PuttuJi Thanks for enlightening us to this knowledge Pranams Sadguru Deva Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

  4. JGD. Praises to Sadguru who also precedes the other four elements needed for mankinds survival. We are truly blessed that in this Kali Yuga Lord Narayana has graced us in the exquisite form of Pujya Sri Swamiji. Om Namo Narayanaya.

    • Dr satyanarayana,sgs hospital,mysore on September 13, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Jgd.The music,Message and the Mantra message of His Holiness stresses that Water and Sadguru”s need for the upliftment of the devotee.Water sustains the Life in the Body and Guru sustains the jnana in the mind of the devotee.Lack of water leads to the death of the Body, but the lack of guidance from Guru leads to the spiritual death.

    • on September 13, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    jai guru datta
    yes water is life saving but sadguru’s grace is like blessings to everybody in all times .
    as today i visited for fist time UK with sadgurus grace without any question they allowed me into UK. such like this we all have so many experiences every day

    • Phani Prasanthi on September 13, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Jai Guru Datta. Sri Gurubyo Namaha. Millions of Pranams to the Lotus feet of Pujya Sri Swamiji.

    • on September 13, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    My Datta Sadguru, Sri Swamiji is the Endless Well containing the sweetest water. Adiguru always provides the purest nectar. Many come to the well and carry this water with tainted buckets. This impurity is avoided when drinking only the water He provides so lovingly. Droughts are avoided when we sing His bhajans and prayers. Thank you Appaji. Jaya Guru Datta

    Earlier, elders at home served as gurus, teaching the younger ones the principles of dharma and how to follow them. They monitored their actions and behavior and gave guidance in times of crisis. Care and concern, law and order were maintained. Now with elders being relegated to living their solitary lives, rejected by the younger ones for their archaic values, Sadguru has had to step in, to take on the roles of teacher, monitor, parent, elder, friend and judge to children of all ages. Sadguru has become as indispensable in modern society as life-giving drinking water.
    Just as we cannot live without water, in spite of all the stores being stocked with all kinds of liquors and soft drinks, not to mention coffee, tea and other beverages, we also cannot live without Sadguru, in spite of having google, Wikipedia, innumerable books online and offline, and social networking systems like Facebook and Twitter.
    Why? When we are faced with a real dilemma in life, or a crisis that we are not strong enough to cope with, or find ourselves in a situation that is unacceptable and yet inescapable, it is only the Sadguru who can provide us the right answer and show us the right direction. No other system in society has the capability to come to our aid. There is not a soul on earth that does not face crisis situations, be they mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, or physical. What a doctor is to a patient, the Sadguru is, to the man in trouble. He is the life-giving water to a man parched with the thirst for values and a purpose in life. Not only in moments of crisis, but Sadguru, like water, nourishes us throughout our lives, with daily doses of nutrients in the form of moral lessons, health tips, and spiritual strength and guidance. We have no chance of survival Appaji, without you.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Hira Duvvuri on September 13, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. Dearest Puttuji,
    Water came into existence before man, whose embryo forms and grows in water till it is born. Water is crucial for the survival of man. Medicine came into existence before disease was born. It is up to man to discover its presence in time. Guru came into existence before ignorance enveloped man. Guru is crucial for man to retain his humanity. Without Sadguru, man degenerates into a beast. Brahma, the Creator is all-knowing. I think that is why He created the egg, the Brahma Anda, the great egg, before he created the chicken. The moment man with mind was created, desire began. When woman came into the picture, desire went out of control and became lust. Anytime there are two human beings, there is jealousy, arrogance, power struggle, tendency for laziness, gluttony, anger, greed, fear, and obsession without discretion. The formula is perfect for man to get reverted to his animal nature. To prevent this from happening, to pull the reins on man’s degeneration, Sadguru was created by Brahma as the Dattatreya principle. Wherever there is creation, sustenance and destruction, Sadguru Datta is present. When the time is right, he steps into a man’s life, the way Appaji does, reforms him and ensures that humanity does not become extinct.

    jgd “Guru Govinda donon kharhey kaakey laagoon paaye, balihaari Guru Aapney Jina Govinda diyo bataaye” (A disciple is obliged by The Guru Who introduces The God to him ), Guru is the most important requirement for human beings , Sahajo Baayi says in one of her bhajans “Guru na tajoon Hari ko taj daaroon ” ( i can leave God but not Guru) because Sahajo feels Guru reveals the secret of God, no body on earth can survive without water likewise Guru is the ultimate necessity for humans to learn to survive with humanity thank You Swami ji for best teachings through Nandana MMS “Guru ke samaana nahin doosaraa jahaan mein” onhn sgd

    • Maurice Clarke on September 13, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    JGD. Existence without Sadguru is indeed unimaginable! Attached as I am to His physical form, I admit to being saddened when He has to leave tiny Trinidad, even though I know He is always with us. The thought of not even having His subtle guidance is really quite horrible, if not hellish. May Sadguru never never never leave us!!! JGD.

    • Manu on September 13, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    Jai Guru Datta,
    we consist mostly of water. If Sadguru is like water – how can we ever for one moment be without Him?
    May Sri Swamiji be with us wherever we are, prostrations to His Lotusfeet, Om namah Sivaya.


    • on September 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    Oberserving my life before i met Sri Swamiji and thinking about all the positive turns it has taken since then i know that Sri Swamiji is guiding me and watching me always. i believe that He was also with me before i met Him. i am sure He saved my life several times. Thank You so so so much Sri Swamiji!

    సద్గురువు మాత్రమే మనకు జ్ఞానాన్ని ప్రసాదించగలిగేది. అందుకే గురువు, గురుభక్తి లేని మానవ జీవితం నిరర్ధకమైనది. సాక్షాత్తు దత్త స్వరూపమైన అప్పాజీని గురువుగా పొందగలిగిన మనము ఎంతో అదృష్టవంతులము.

    Jai Guru Datta Sri Rama Appaji !!

    Sadgurudeva is always looking out for us. Even in our displeasure Sadgurudeva is working his magic to take us towards salvantation. As Puttuji says, Puyja Gurudeva watches out for our 7 generations. We can live without water but without Gurudeva we are like fish out of water. I cannot imagine to what depths of the worldly ocean I would have drowned to without Gurudeva !!

    Gurudeva pervades all cosmic and material elements. Having surrendered to HIS LOTUS FEET, I recall the following verse from Guru Gita:

    Eva eva paro banduh Vishame Samupasthite
    Nisprhah Karuna Sindhuh Tasmai Sri Guruve Namah

    Om Kurmaya Namaha !! Om Sri Datta Venkatesaya Namaha !!
    Sri Guru Datta Hauman Ki Jai !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha!!

    Sadguru is indispensable to humanity ~ 13 sep 2012

    Namaste Puttuji. Good video with Om Kurmaya Namah mantra in the beginning and Om Venkatesaya Namah at the end and in between our beloved Sadguru Appaji indicating that from Kruta yuga ( Kurmavataram) till Kaliyuga ( Lord Venkateswara Avataram ), world always needed a Sadguru, who is indispensable like water in all yuga’s. Epics tell us many stories when a person at a suitable time had Gurupadesam from Sage Narada who goes to the person uninvited. Sage valmiki who wrote sacred Ramayana was initiated by Sage Narada. Bhakta prahlada, son of king Hiranyakasipa was initiated when he was in the mother’s womb itself by Sage Narada who infused devotion into prahlada letting him get the name as ‘ Bhakta Prahlada’. And many more such stories. Adiguru Dattatreya, led many devotees towards self realisation. He grants blessings not only for the spiritual enhancement but also for worldly things and making a devotee realise from within that there is something lacking in the material things and letting him aspire more firmly from the depth of the heart for spiritual life. Lord Dattatreya also went to a devotee at a suitable time uninvited and blessed with material or spiritual welfare. That is the nature of Sadguru. Bhakta prahlada attains self realisation, which is beyond devotion with the teachings of Lord Dattatreya. Sadguru, in the form of Sage Narada, initiated Prahlada spiritually and as Lord Dattatreya helped him complete spiritual journey. We are very lucky for being with our Appaji, incarnation of Lord Dattatreya, and roaming all over the world initiating lakhs of devotees like Sage Narada and leading them righteously towards self realisation. Sadgurubhyo Namah. Thanks a lot Puttuji. Namaste.

    Every person requires someone to guide in right path. Father guides at every step of life towards success but Sadguru guides us towards Dharma and to realise the truth. Like food and water is essential for life similarly Sadguru fills essence in human life. Pranams to Pujya Sadguru Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji.

    • Prasad Madala on September 14, 2012 at 7:10 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Not only water, Sadguru also gives LIFE. I wonder how I lived 3/4 of my life without a GURU? APPAJI, please bless us to stick to your feet for whatever janmas we get in the process of attaining mukti.
    Humble pranamams to YOUR lotus feet.
    Om Sri Sadgurubhyo Namaha!

    • on September 14, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Jaya Guru Hanuman,

    It is said – “A person is made of animality, humanity and divinity”. Without a Guru all humanity will become animals driven only by senses organs. Guru alone can help us raise above our animal behavior, be humans and elevate us to the level of divinity. Infinite prostrations to Sri Swamiji who has come only to guide us and elevate us.

    Om namo hanumate namaha

    Whenever Adharma or injustice and vile deeds multiply,Lord Krishna said,
    God incarnate descends to quell all evil doers and establish peace and justice.
    OH! Sachchidananda! you alone can redeem humanity and establish peace. I bow
    before your Divinity.

    • on September 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    JGD! It also struck me that Sadgurudeva is not only live-giving like water, but also live-giving like the sun.Anyway, there is nothing more precious than Sadguru. He is the oasis in the spiritual desert. I bow down to Your lotus feet full of gratitude for uplifting me and my brothers & sisters. SGD!

    • Sahadeva on September 14, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Jay Guru Datta

    There is something looks on me. One time more then the other times, but also in the time it is less present he is there. My Satguru I love him and is omnipredent in my feelings. Sometimes his presence is extremely strong. How that is that possible is a question coming from my intellect. My intellect put questions what perhaps is not correct, because you have just top accept. The love can be so strong that you see the intellect from a distance from another intellect. My view on things grows to a broader vision on the material world.

    Thanks Swami Ji

    JAYA GURU DATTA! With the first Darshan of my truelife-giving Sadgurudeva my life improved in everything. I had, and still have to loose a lot of illusions. The process of waking up continous.
    With all my gratitude I prostrate to the lotusfeet of my beloved Appaji, Deva di Deva. S.G.D.!

    • on September 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

    Just as a glass of cool water quenches our thirst, Saguru’s darshan quenches the parched heart. Just a glimpse of Him is enough to energize a dead soul. Analogy is superb. Puttuji is convincing when he says “We aren’t sure of water, but sure of Sathguru.. for, He takes charge of next 7 generations of His devotees” I am the third generation of Late Sri Parthasarathy garu’s family (Silence Parthasarathy as he was fondly called). Appaji has been our only source of strength in the last 60 odd years of our association. Thank You Appaji for keeping us in your fold. JGD!!

    • svetha on September 16, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Sadguru Is Indispensable To Humanity – 13th Sept 2012

    Water is the greatest gift from God, to all forms of life. Without water there is no existence. It is the life giving source to all forms of life on this earth. It is one among the Pancha Tattvas (5 elements) in God`s creation. Like how water is the vital element for survival and external cleansing. Similarly, Sadguru is the vital force for internal cleansing and also the vital source to quench our thirst for knowledge and inner peace.
    When we go to the sea, river or any waterfalls, we feel so happy and peaceful. Likewise in the presence of Sadguru, we all feel energized and so peaceful internally. We get the confidence and encouragement to face anything in life. Our ancient Vedas have stressed the importance of Sadguru in our spiritual journey. Without Sadguru`s guidance nothing can we achieved. We all are so blessed to be in the divine presence of Pujya Sadgurudeva. All that we have to do is just follow HIS instructions without any doubts. HE knows how to cleanse us, where to guide us and finally make us all precious gems. The background music is so soothing. It simply calms the agitated mind.
    I humbly pray to Pujya Sadgurudeva to guide us in our long spiritual journey and help us in becoming pure and clear as water, internally. Jai Gurudeva Datta!

    • Glory of Rama on September 25, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Sadguru is God’s messenger on earth. He is not an ordinary human being like the rest of us. He knows everyone’s past, present and future. He knows how to help people overcome their distress and despondency. He descends to earth in a human form only to lend a hand to ordinary folks, expecting nothing in return. He helps us to get rid of our ignorance and our ego. He shows us the way to happiness that is enduring, not fleeting like the joys of the world. He motivates, inspires, encourages & leads.

    • tunga on October 11, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    with sri swamijis yatra to the waterfalls I became more conscious of the Divinity of water, being able to feel and experience it in whatever form water on our wonderful blue planet is giving life to us and all living beings. it is so comforting that sri swamiji is taking care of the suffering water and showing us how to revere this Divine element. our beloved sadguru is a Divine waterfall showering His love and grace on us and awakening the Divinity of life.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on December 18, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    JGD Appaji
    Once a Sadguru enters our life, we realize He has known us,been with us through all our lifetimes. Everyone will have accumulated enough punya one day to find a Sadguru. Sadguru is always welcoming new devotees who have been waiting for Him. So everyone has to come to the Sadguru one day. That means, He was there, is there and will always be there for humanity.
    Just like the rocks get smoothened by the constant and unending flow of water, Sadguru’s constant flow of divine nectar removes away the layers of accumulated dust and smoothens our souls! Thank you Appaji..let us be just like the snow covered immovable mountains….. firmly rooted and constantly covered with your teachings!
