  1. This is a wake-up call for each one who is busy serving oneself
    Almighty, the architect of this Universe has designed every element here to serve the other. It is about interdependence.. shared destiny
    The morning sun energises. The evening moon relaxes. When flowers bloom, their very sight is good to make us smile & lighten up. The air is our prana. We’re on physical & emotional life support from Mother Nature. How can we not learn from her?
    Pranams Ganapathiroopa Sathgurudeva!
    You are reminding once again us about the purpose of our existence (MMS 304). You don’t want us to waste this janma, living life on self-serving mode
    Your avatara exemplifies the virtue – Manava Seva is Madhava Seva. You taught us that kindness must be remembered (MMS 320). We receive so much kindness from Almighty through his creation (Srishti). We will return the gratitude by fearlessly (vira) serving others. For in serving others, we serve God
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – maanava sevaye maadhava seva – a very old tradition, forgotten now a days – is brought back to light by Your Holiness. It is all about putting others (people, society, organization or anything that helps) before the self. From Appaji’s chutuke – as the river doesnt feel proud nor the tree – yet continuously in service of others – oh man, why are you arrogant of your self-service or servicelessness

    Jaya Guru Datta! Thank you for this reminder, Swamiji. More and more I am being drawn to share your music with others as seva, help me bring that to fruition…Sri Guru Datta!

    Jaya Guru Datta! What a beautiful thought and deed to serve others, indeed. Appaji, please bless me that I continue to serve others more & more and most especially: with true selflessness, not looking out for some reward somewhere in the (hidden?) corners of my mind which I still do when honestly analysing myself. Sri Guru Datta!

    • Archana Penukonda on April 17, 2013 at 1:13 am

    Jaya Guru Datta! Reminds me of the adage “Service to mankind is service to God”. Sri Swamiji’s love for every being in this creation is ineffable. It’s His love that brought Him to this planet in a human form. And since every being is His child, He wants us to serve others. MMS 303 said that the path of devotion demands that we love and serve all without hurting anyone. MMS 63 said that God gifted this life to serve Him. If serving others is serving Him, then it is also true that God gifted this life to serve others. True Puttuji, we spend lifetime after lifetime serving ourselves, serving illusory desires and goals. MMS 304 instructed us to seize every opportunity to serve others because that alone fulfills the purpose of life.
    Swamiji, You have given me everything I need including a healthy body and mind. Please bless me to kill my ego so I can serve without bias and serve out of love. Obeisances at The Holy Lotus Feet!

    By seeing today’s MMS , it is more or less linked with MMS 303 , 304, 317 and 320. Also I remember Appaji’s words saying that there is no virtue better than compassion. No disease is worse than greed. Therefore by seeing Appaji’ all these golden MSG , it is a lesson for us to share with others our knowledge especially in the spiritual path and not only that where ever possible we should give our help and service to them with out expecting anything in return from them. That is the real virtue. That is why Appaji says Manava seva is Madhava seva. Indirectly it means it is a service to our God by us. More over in this Kaliyuga we see our Appaji as the incarnation of Lord Datta and naturally , He is our God and what ever we do any service to others , it is considered as service toHim only. More over here I recollect in Sachchidananda unveiled Appaji says that service to Guru is service to God. Therefore when we do service to others means service to Him as well as to God. More over when we listen to Appaji’s various discourses we can notice that He always says don’t waste your time by idling and simply sitting and at the sametime do some service with in our capacity and share with others. This is equal to do service to Guru/ God. When we go to Ashram we can see this How the volunteers are doing their seva and indirectly they will get the blessings from Sadguru. In Mother’s creation in nature the Plannets , trees , plants and animals , how they are giving their service to humanbeing and that to with out excepting any thing in return from us. Accordingly , when we follow Appaji , it is our duty also to do service to others volunteerly and that is the real seva to Guru/ God. Thank you Appaji for this good teaching and we follow. JGD.

    jayagurudatta puttuji, sashtangapranams at lotus feet of poojya swamiji, poojya swamiji,is reminding us again the importance of manava seva, poojya swamiji is giving much importance to service, just like amma vodi and sgs vaidya seva, poojya swamiji with your divine blessings we are following at your lotus feet, om namo hanumathenamhaa

  7. Jai Guru Datta! First in our daily email we read that Sevice to Guru is service to God. Now in this wonderful MMS we hear that service to others is service to God! Of course, God is Everywhere! No matter is we turn to the left or to the right there is some sort of service we can engage in and enjoy the enrapture! For service and seva help us unwrap the karmic bonds that bind us! Light surrounds us! We continue evolving to become the lotus blossom in Swamiji’s hand!
    I love being a part of Swamiji’s worldwide missions of compassionate services to others as it allows me to help so many others who I would not have been able to touch the lives many years ago by my self. Thank you Swamiji for coming to get me on the other side of the globe and allowing me to partner with you in your national and international missions to Humanity and Mother Earth.

  8. Appaji follows what he preaches to the devotees; pl. bless us to follow this principle in the right earnest.

    321. ఇతరుల సేవే భగవంతుని సేవ. ఓం సృష్టి గణపతయే నమః – ఓం వీర గణపతయే నమః
    నా సుఖం కోసం నేను శ్రమించటంలో గొప్పేమీ లేదు, దానితో కలిగే లాభమూ లేదు. ఇతరుల సుఖం దోచుకుని, నేను సుఖం పొందితే, అది పాపం. ఇతరులకోసం నేను నిస్వార్థంగా, ఏ ఫలితమూ ఆశించకుండా చెయ్యటమే నా జీవిత లక్ష్యం. ఇదీ, సద్గురుబోధన. ఇదీ గుర్తుంచుకోవలసిన విషయం. ఇదీ వారు స్వయంగా చేసి, మనకు చూపిస్తున్న నిదర్శనం. ఉన్న బట్టలు చాలనట్లు నేను మరిన్ని క్రొత్త బట్టలు కొనుక్కుంటే అది నాకూ లాభం కాదు, ఇతరులకూ లాభం కాదు. నేను డబ్బును నామీద వ్యర్థం చెయ్యకుండా, లేనివారికి వస్త్రదానం చేస్తే, అన్నదానం చేస్తే, విద్యాదానం చేస్తే, అదీ సంతోషంగా, ప్రేమగా, దానిలో ఎంత ఆనందం ఉంది! ఎంత తృప్తి! ప్రయాణాల ప్రయాసలకోర్చి, ఆఫ్రికా దేశంలోని ప్రజలకోసం స్వామీజీ సంగీతం వాయిస్తే ఆ నాదచికిత్సతో లాభం పొందినవారు వివిధ దేశాలలోని వేలాది ప్రజలు. వారికందులో ఏమిటి లాభం? వారు నిశ్చింతగా, మైసూరు గురునిలయంలో సుఖంగా కూర్చుని వాయించుకోలేరా? ఇతరుల సేవకు, నిస్వార్థ సేవకు వారిచ్చే ప్రాముఖ్యత అటువంటిది! వారు మనకు నేర్పుతున్న పాఠం అంత గొప్పది. బాల స్వామీజీ వారు విశ్రాంతిగా ఆశ్రమంలో కూర్చోలేరా? ఎందుకని తెల్లవారుజామున నగర సంకీర్తనకని ఎన్నో మైళ్ళు నడిచి, గొంతువిప్పి భగవన్నామాలు పాడుతున్నారు? ఇతరులచేత పాడిస్తున్నారు? వారికేమి లాభం? లాభమంతా ఇతరులకు. అది లోకకళ్యాణం కోసం. జయ గురు దత్త.

    By their untiring examples, Swamiji and Bala Swamiji are demonstrating to us all, the importance of selfless service, service without expecting any personal comfort or profit. Swamiji can easily play his synthesizer to his heart’s content in the comfort of his own Guru Nilayam. Why does he take all the trouble of traveling to South Africa to perform there? What does he gain by it? Nothing. Thousands of listeners worldwide have been healed by the magic of his music. Bala Swamiji could easily relax at the ashram in the early hours of the day. Yet, he walks the streets of Hyderabad, loudly singing the glories of God, praying for world peace and universal welfare. What does he gain by it? Nothing. Peace and prosperity increase in the world. Their actions speak louder than their words. Jaya Guru Datta

    Beautiful continuation of MMS 320. Kindness received should never be forgotten and the help received should be offered to the needy. This will make us experience the help received from almighty and the services received by HIM. May lord bless us all to have compassion and kindness towards others and offer our services as if serving God without any selfish motives.
