  1. Candid!

    In the material world, achievers know the importance of being honest or sincere. In their relentless pursuit of a chosen goal, team members are quick to expel a liar, and move on. Is it any different in the inner world? See MMS43, 135, 151, 179

    The search for Self-realization is driven by a sadhak’s quest for reality. He finds it so transient outside, that he seeks the changeless inside

    As Appaji declared several years ago : “Let the truth be known that for your inner journey you have to walk alone”. Lack of sincerity here means one is cheating himself. Looking through the lens of deceit, one can never discover truth. Why would one do that?

    Pranams Shivaswaroopa Sathgurudeva!

    Those little lies we tell ourselves keep us in our comfort zones, and hence in spite of your continuous guidance, we’re yet to succeed in our inner world. Today we regret our hypocrisy. We resolve to be sincere to you (to ourselves) in this year ahead.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji. What a wonderful MMS to conclude this year. The invocation of Lord Parama Shiva, the video and the evergreen Bhajan – all make the message more serene. We pray to Your Lotus Feet for annihilating all our ignorance as Shiva does and to renew our energy, devotion and revitalize our sincerity for our inner journey. Thank You Appaji

  2. Jai Guru Datta
    Dear Swami AVADHOTTA
    This is a amazing video, thank YOU, a taste of being free…
    That only the sincere one get self-realisation is really good; to move forward and learn and understand every necessary step, is what I pray for.
    Sri Guru Datta and much love and a very Happy New Year form my SadGuru
    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    Jaya Guru Datta! In the past, I can remember Swamiji talking about how He wants us to use Him to help ourselves attain realization, but instead, we ask Him for a good job, or a new house, or a marriage partner. I have heard Him lament that when we are in His presence, we forget to ask spiritual questions or how to improve our sadhana. Let us all make a New Year’s resolution to use our time with Swamiji more wisely….Who else in our lives wants our ultimate success of realization? Sri Guru Datta!

    • Savitri on December 31, 2012 at 9:50 am

    Because I know that Swamiji knows all, I know also, that I can’t hide something. Like this it is the best to look always for the truth and be sincere. All other don’t make any sense. Also it is the best to look difficulties in theire eye. Then I can find a way.

    May the new year be full of joy, strength and hope to us all.
    to all

    As we enter a new year, Sri Swamiji moulds Our thinking & inspires us to be sincere in all our pursuits. He teaches us to be sincere in following His teachings, the Nandana MMS, Puttu Gam posts, our daily prayers & other instructions to us by Sadguru.
    Festivals occur & are celebrated year after year, but, the universal principle for sincerity will never change & is repeatedly reminded to us through the celebrations…
    Sri Swamiji had taught us that the universe rests in the womb of The Mother.
    Sri Guru Gita teaches us that the cosort of Parvathi (Mother) – Lord Shiva is Guru.
    Oh! Guru, You envelope everything – beyond our imagination.
    It is true without doubt that it is You who teaches us, guides us & builds the discipline & devotion in us to conduct ourselves appropriately.
    We seek Your blessings, that we sincerely pursue all that You bestow us with..

    Our bird friends in the Shukha Vana, like a mirror have shown us, how much eternal love You bestow on us & how we heed & follow Your ways (sometimes obedient, sometimes ignorant)
    The animation in the MMS are splendid as well as very thoughtful.
    Om Gurave Namah..

    Jaya Guru Datta. Om Namah Sivaya. I pray for sincerity- even with and especially with myself. Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, I love you and wish you a very happy New Year. Sri Guru Datta.

    At the end of the year, Appaji has given a warning to us saying that , we should be loyal and true to ourself. Therefore to attain this quality, we should follow the spiritual path through our Sadguru only. The photography and the Bhajan played on Harmonium by our late Arogyaswami are very apt to this MSG. This is because if we go through GuruGeetha , we will realize the importance ofour Sadguru through Whom we can obtain Self realization and will be always sincere. In this kaiyuga people are interested for worldly pleasures and for material benefit which is not at all permanent .Therefore if we develop our spiritual path , we can get rid of from the unwanted desires and get liberation through the teachings of our Sadguru which is only permanent .

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Namah Sivaya
    Sri Swamiji supports us with all kind of experiences on our path to Self-Realization. There is so much we still have to learn. There is indeed sincere effort needed since we have to go step for step.
    Thank You so much dear Appaji for supporting
    us even if we are struggling.
    Koti pranams to Your Divine Lotus Feet.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji !!

    Self-Realization is another name for God-Realization. All duties should be done with sincerity and concentration. Concentration with Unconditional belief is called sincerity (shredha). Even if a person performs meditation standing with one leg for 1000 of years, he will fail to see the supreme if it is done without belief and sincerity.

    Appaji observes all your thoughts, words and deeds in the visible form or in a subtle form. He teaches us different principles at the proper time. We are fortunate to be with Sadgurudeva and our foremost duty is to follow His words and register in our minds. We can attain the goal of self-realization, succeed in our inner journey by a cautious march on the divine path under the guidance of Sadgurudeva.

    We are learning from you. We will be more sincere to ourselves in this year ahead.

    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !! Sri Karya Siddhi Hanuman ki Jai !!

  3. Jai guru Dev pranams to the divine LOTUS blessed to be nearer to you thoughts may up to the new spiritual heights.

  4. For self-Realization just believe the Guru and follow his teachings.

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    quiet often we have good resolutions for the new year. Dear Puttuji, may I stay true to myself and make some good efforts on the spiritual path – along with my sisters and brothers. Thank you Puttuji for all the colorful mms in 2012. I am looking forward to continue to read your devine massages also in 2013.
    Pranams and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Like the meterorites flying by planet earth, thoughts and desires surge around blocking the experience of self realization. Only with sincere concentration on Shiva, truth, stillness within our hearts can we begin to know Self. Thank you Swamiji for the most eloquent MMS.

    Jai Guru Datta,
    I´ve heard a holy man say that if you want god as badly as you want air when you are about to drown He will be there in an instant. I´m in a deluded state and it´s difficult for me to be as sincere as a drowning man in his need for air. I can only pray to Sri Swamiji – please be so kind and kindle the flame within my heart and please norrish the fire that is already burning. Please give me the strenght and grace to go beyond my own limitations, fears, addictions and shortcomings. Please help me to become sincere.
    Sri Guru Datta.
