  1. To err is human. To repeat is not.. because we are endowed with the power of discrimination. We can choose. Yet, there are times when our minds get clouded by ignorance, by our own ego. In such times the Sathguru shines through the clouds like the bright sunlight, dispelling the darkness.. preventing repetition of error.

    When you make a mistake, you must accept it (MMS 39). If you don’t accept it, you don’t learn from it. Acceptance triggers introspection, and prompts a silent confession to the Guru. The ensuing resolve prevents recurrence.

    Dear Gurudeva, You’re Datta Venkata. You’re our inner watchman, coach & mentor. There are times we stray away from your chosen path for us. At such times, you are our Govinda, playing your music, herding us through life to our destination, preventing us from going in circles. We will follow your divine musical messages, and stay focussed on serving your mission onto our fulfilment. Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji.

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji! I love this teaching this morning, it is just what I need in this moment! Recently, I have been playing with an exercise I learned in a book discussion. It is an exercise to develop self-acceptance and love. Inwardly, no matter what you do, how you act, what you see, how you feel, you accept yourself completely and lovingly with the words “Of course you felt, acted, did….that…..” But then you ask yourself “How is this helping you on your path towards enlightenment? Are there better actions you can take…” This has been a wonderful exercise and it reminds me of the love and guidance that Guru gives us. Swamiji always accepts us, no matter what we do, but then loving guides us consider and accept our mistakes and rectify them by adopting better behaviors. Deepest gratitude for that love and for these lessons that affirm the small steps that we are taking to improve ourselves….

    JGD Appaji
    Many times we have noticed that just by chanting His name or remembering Him in a situation, we control our negative reactions automatically. If we constantly make it a habit of chanting His name and thinking of Him, we will not commit any mistakes at all.. Appaji we will train ourselves to constantly contemplate on You..Your music, MMS and teachings so that all our negative reactions vanish forever.

    • Gilla Lalitha on October 19, 2012 at 9:49 am

    JGD Appaji – For us this MMS are like going to school everyday and learning some thing new. We are very much blessed in this life to have Guru like our Sadguru Parama Pujya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji who takes care of his people like a mother and like Bhoomatha. Thank you Appaji – Om Sri Jaya Lakshmi Matayai Namah – SGD

    Mis-take is when you mis-understand your true Nature which is Sat Chit Ananda and starts to mis(s) sensory values and spend your energy chasing for Absolut Bliss among ever-changing things.
    By SadGurus guiding light the snake becomes a rope.

    My Datta Sadguru is ever present, making sure this devotee understands the ramifications of my actions. Sri Swamiji gently, lovingly shows the light on the path and when forks in the road appear, makes it easier to know which way to go. Many mistakes have unknowingly been made in the past, and through His Grace, they will not be repeated. Like a Loving Mother making sure her child does not crawl to that first step of the stairwell.

    Jai guru Datta
    Appajis grace is such he always bless us in such a way that we correct from our mistakes.
    But all what we do is mistake or correct we do not know,
    What I observe is the people around him are always doing mistakes.
    And harming the mission of sadguru , so appaji always bless them so they can correct ,
    Sri guru datta

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Sri Swamiji helps us to make experiences which enable us to develop us further. At the same time He is giving us wonderful advices as through the Musical Message Sayings so that we can understand our mistakes and prevent a repetition.

    Danke für diese Botschaft Appaji! Mir ist besonders eingeleuchtet, dass ich meine Fehler akzeptieren sollte, um daraus zu lernen, anstatt mich wegen ihnen schlecht zu fühlen. Fehler annehmen, sich selbst vergeben und dann weiter voranschreiten – diese Haltung bringt eine ganze andere Energie und Kraft mit sich als Selbstverurteilung und ein schlechtes Gewissen – was sich für mich eher wie Stagnation anfühlt. Ich bitte dich mir zu helfen aus meinen Fehlern zu lernen ohne sie immer und immer wieder zu wiederholen. Jaya Guru Devi Datta, Rajeshi

  4. Jaya Guru Datta. Happy Navaratri! Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, I love you so very much. I was lost in despondency and desires and I am very sorry. Please forgive me and mold me to your divine will. Sri Guru Datta.

    • Joseph on October 19, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    To err is human….. It’s true, human commits mistakes and if there is some one to correct our mistakes like father does to his children, it’s wonderful and beyond words to express. In worldly aspects it’s father who corrects mistakes and guides his children in right path because father aspires only for a bright future of the child, but in spiritual path it’s God who can prevent us from doing or repeating mistakes. Only one who has complete knowledge can guide us in right path. Only God is the appropriate guide to all living beings who can prevent us from repeating mistakes and all of us will be fortunate enough if almighty takes a form, reaches us to convey His message and save everyone. May lord bless us all with righteous thought, doing good deeds and prevent us from committing mistakes.

  5. Only the Sadguru makes us realize what our mistakes are. Until he does so, we keep repeating the mistakes because most of the time we do not realize the seriousness of our mistakes and their grave consequences. We treat life lightly. We treat our thoughts, words, and actions lightly. We think that life is merely for time-pass We think the purpose of life is to have fun. Only when the fun suddenly turns disastrous, we awaken to the fact that there is more to the meaning of life than what we had thought. Thank you Swamiji for opening our eyes. Please bless us with the discipline required to stay on the right path and not repeat our mistakes out of a weak mind. Jaya Guru Datta

    Desiring to eat a Masala Dosa in a restaurant never appeared as a mistake or the call of the inner enemy called gluttony, before. Now it does. Spending hours shopping for clothes never seemed like a mistake before. Now it does. Napping for pleasure in the afternoons never appeared as a mistake before. Now it does. Reading novels did not appear wrong before. Now it does. Gossiping about social events did not seem like a mistake before. Now it does. Eating meals while watching television did not seem like a mistake before. Now it does. Waking up late on weekends sounded fine before. Not so anymore. Watching a ball game with friends seemed like a good thing to do. Not so now. What our Sadguru has done is that he has given us new definitions for the word ‘Mistake’. Anything that spoils the mind or body, anything that wastes time, anything that contaminates, rather than purify, is a ‘mistake’. These new definitions, like thorns, prick me now each time a simple temptation occurs. Jaya Guru Datta

    • Praveen Nidumolu on October 20, 2012 at 12:50 am

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – Your grace like the resplendent SUN has always helped your devotees to overcome their weaknesses and thus prevent them from repeating their mistakes. Devotion to you helps build a strong conscience in the devotees’ hearts, and as a result there is always your Inner presence that is felt that prevents them from making/repeating the mistakes. It also gives us the strength and maturity to accept others’ mistakes gracefully.
    Forever grateful to you for your Compassion, Constant Guidance and Grace! Sri Guru Datta.

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Appaji is Datta Venkata Swamy. We are His creation and He knows each and everyone of us. Sadguru never forgets us!!
    He is Lord Govinda, Our Master of minds!! He wants to protect and prevent us from repeating the mistakes, due to His compassion and love for us.
    We will surrender and practice Appaji’s words,japa, music, chanting, seva, Datta Kriya yoga, ultimate truth revealing divine MMS etc, then Sadguru’s grace will prevent us from repeating our mistakes. It is a Miracle !!

    Sri Jayalakshmi mathre namah !! Sri Guru Datta Hanuman ki Jai !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

  6. Puttuji, I love you. You have changed my life completely. All the fun things I used to enjoy, have now begun to appear as bad things for my spiritual progress. Thanks to you, now I do not attend parties, eat in restaurants except while in travel, do not shop except for bare necessities, do not visit or call friends to simply chitchat, loll in bed with a fiction book or fun magazine, or munch on fried snacks just to pass time. All these never appeared like mistakes before. Now they do, after listening to your speeches. You made me realize how important it is, to use my body, mind, speech, time, and resources wisely. Thank you jaya Guru Datta

    Jai Guru Datta! This message is very moving. It is like miracles that all these useless habits loose their interest without any effort. The Sadguru-sculptor’s work makes us beautiful internally. And the perception and the longings completely change. Please, continue your sculptoring. That we may always be receptif for it and enjoy.

    • on October 21, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji,

    We all learn from mistakes only. That is why the famous saying, “To err is human” as said by Puttuji. Many of us do mistakes repeatedly due to ignorance, but with Pujya Sri Swamiji’s blessing, Sadguru makes us realize our mistakes and makes sure we don’t repeat it again.
    I pray to Pujya Sri Swamiji to bless us with jnana so that our ignorance is ward off and we do not repeat the mistakes again. Thank you for the excellent SGS-MMS video message.

    Sri Guru Datta

    • on October 22, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Puttuji’s comments are augmenting the meaning of this quote. You are superior to any darkness that is hovering over us, Appaji. With Your presence in our lives, may we not repeat past mistakes and continue to make progress towards Your Lotus Feet. Sri Guru Datta

  7. Jai Guru Datta, thank you Swami Ji for this blessed life where I have you as my Sadguru. Without your blessed presence I would have been lost.
    Pranam Sadguru

    It is good to know that our Sadguru helps, because without His teachings,living examples, guidance, compassion and love how could we make it. Prostrations, prostrations in gratitude.

    Guru prevents you from repeating your mistakes ~ 19 Oct 2012

    Namaste Puttuji. Nice video with wonderful bhajan. Guru prevents you from repeating mistakes. In Guru Gita, Appaji said that Guruvu sikshinchi sikshaNa istaru. Punishes and trains so that disciple should not repeat the same mistake. Namaste Puttuji.

    I can only second what Hira Aunty has written. I totally identify with what she has written. Sadguru alone makes us realize our mistakes that we so complacently refuse to accept. Our fat ego makes us so proud of our mistakes. But Sadguru kills our ego and helps us realize our mistakes. He grooms us so that we outgrow our tendency to make mistakes. He holds our hand and makes us walk with Him so that we do not even have a negative thought. Oh Sadgurudeva, how can I thank you for grooming me into what I am today. I know what I was two years ago and today I am nowhere close to what I used to be. Yet, I have a long way to go. I need your continued support to be groomed into a better soul. Love you Appaji. Jaya Guru Datta.

    • Hamsa on October 26, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    A Guru is absolutely necessary for every aspirant in the spiritual path. It is only the Guru who will find out your defects. The nature of our ego is such that we will not be able to find out our own defects. Just as a man cannot see his back, so also he cannot see his own errors. He must live under a Guru for the eradication of his evil qualities and defects.

    An aspirant who is under the guidance of a Master or Guru is safe from going astray. Satsanga or association with the Guru is an armour and fortress to guard us against all temptations and unfavourable forces of the material world. For a sincere disciple, help comes in a mysterious manner. Guru has HIS own way of teaching his disciple. HE will help us realize our errors and guide us to correct ourselves.

    How blessed we all are to be corrected and guided by our pujya Appaji! All that we need to do is realise our mistakes and learn from them. I humbly pray at the lotus feet of pujya Appaji for making us realise our defects and showning us the way to rectify them. Thank you Gurudeva!! Sadgurunath Maharaj Ki Jai…!

    • Nada on October 26, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Sadguru prevents you from repeating your mistakes ~ 19 Oct 2012

    As human beings, we make many mistakes. We must learn from our mistakes. We need to use our power of discrimination to correct ourselves and to make sure that we do not repeat it in future. But our minds are so cluttered sometimes, that we do not even realize that we are probably repeating our previous errors. That is when a Sadguru guides us! He makes us aware through our own conscience that we are commiting a mistake. He warns us and signals to us at such times. This guiding light helps us prevent more wrong-doings! And thereby leads us in the path of Dharma. When we follow and protect Dharma, we are in turn protected by the Lord! All this becomes possible only by the grace of Sadguru. The video depicts the bright Sun behind the clouds. This represents our Sadguru, the Bhakta Bandhava, who clears the clouds of ignorance from our minds and protects us and is our guiding light! Let us all follow our Sadguru very sincerely and closely and walk in the path of righteousness. Jaya Guru Datta!
