    July 22: success:

    This thought by Sadguru has indeed redefined success for us …. As , only when one is wise he realises that knows nothing and needs to begin his quest for knowledge.. With this realisation he works efficiently to acquire knowledge to a great extent. But this might be hindered by disturbing thoughts caused by critics around who might discourage , but one needs to know that we need to build a firm foundation with the bricks thrown at us by others.. Thus learn tolerance . Learning  process flourishes with external aid .. Hence one needs to be gentle in speech to win over the hearts of his preceptors and praise them generously to make himself realise their worth.. When all these factors combine, success is undoubtedly his!   All this is possible only by our Ganapati sachchidananda Sadguru ‘s Ganapati is one who removes all obstacles and gives us sadbudhi , pray to Sadguru to guide us through this journey to success.. This reminds me of my Armakatha, wherein I described as to how Sadguru made me realise the hidden potentials in me and assigned me with work which I had never attempted before , which I shared with all my Facebook friends and was very motivational for them.. Have all my friends forgotten about it? Then in that case, I sincerely pray to Sadguru deva to permit me to begin the Armakatha again!! Jgd

    Beautiful! Now to heed this advice. Jaya Guru Datta.

    • on July 22, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Balaka Priyane is one of the great Ganesha bhajans in Kannada language that lifts the spirits up. Sri Swamiji is giving us the key formula for success with this MMS message. I like how the cloud steps are made up to reach the sky. It is as thought telling us, “Only sky is the limit” for your growth, if you follow the instructions. Great message. Thank you puttuji.

    • Sirish P. on July 23, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Secrets of Success from the Divine Appaji. So wonderful to read guidance for life in such simple words. We are so fortunate!

    wonderful compilation… and so beautiful bhajan in the backdrop!! JGD

    • Suri Duvvuri on July 23, 2012 at 1:03 am

    Dear Swamiji, This is one of the first bhajans which we heard and heard the most. The impression it made changed our lives. The only way we can have such attributes as described in the saying will be with the blessings of Sri Swamiji I have the confidence this will happen in due course. We love you.

    • on July 23, 2012 at 1:20 am

    Jaya guru datta appaji please make all of us be success by following nanda mms sri guru datta

    • don ganguly on July 23, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Appaji has given us a simple formula for success in daily life.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • S.Jayaraman on July 23, 2012 at 2:13 am

    JGD. Sri Swamiji has always been advising devotees that be tolerant and patient and dedicated and focussed to achieve success. With all humility I can tell that it is true in my case also with Sadgurudeva’s grace.

    • Kannan on July 23, 2012 at 2:20 am

    Jgd.. Very Well composed & Designed.. Apt for All .. Must practice for Success

    • Hema on July 23, 2012 at 3:03 am

    Thank you for this wonderful explanation of Sadguru’s message. I must admit I was not getting the true understanding before reading your comment. Now I can explain this to the children. Jaya guru Datta. Om namo Hanumate namah.

    • Dr.Satyanarayana on July 23, 2012 at 3:53 am

    jgd.wise,efficient,knowledge,tolerant,gentle in speech,generous in praise are the Fragrances that you get over your self when you do Guru seva, selflessly.

    • Sudharshan Sripad on July 23, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Jai Guru Datta, am not sure if this is correct. Appaji’s teaching for today and his explanations seem to reflect the essence of vedanta in a nut shell to my little brain. Each word as explained by Appaji has the potential for a lot of contemplation in relation to the material world and the realisation of the self. So very beautifully structured. I prostrate to the Holy feet of Appaji to Bless us to have the needful Gnana to truly understand the hidden meaning in His teachings.

    • on July 23, 2012 at 4:57 am

    JGD!! Superb graphics. Love the cute pink Baby Ganesha. The way those massive waterfalls merge and take form of Vira Ganapathi is too good. Siddhi and Buddhi sitting on Vira Ganapathi’s lap are direct symbols to the message. Thank You Appaji for this lesson. It is a corporate lesson to the “T”. If all of us have to grow professionally, this is THE MANTRA. Personally too, this message will surely take us closer to our goals. If Chanting Mantras (yesterday’s message) helps our minds to focus, today’s message helps the focussed mind to achieve success. Though in this very very competitive and dynamic market, it is difficult to keep our patience and remain tolerant, it is still a secret to climb up the ladder (secret from my beloved Sadguru). JGD!!

    Balakapriyane is a personal favorite, older bhajan, taught to me when I was a child 🙂 Refreshes memories of olden days Ashram!

    • on July 23, 2012 at 5:02 am

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji,
    Thank you for sharing the secret of success MMS video. We will follow these tips and be successful in all the endeavors of life.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • on July 23, 2012 at 5:07 am

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Thank you very much puttugamji, Very well explained, please continue Atma Katha, we used to love reading daily Atma Katha on FB.

    Sri Guru Datta

  1. JGD.O! how nice! to mould a success.This way,this quality is possible only thro’ Sadguruseva,nishkamyaseva,surrenderd seva.Appaji! bless us all in this moulding.SGD.

    • on July 23, 2012 at 6:07 am

    Jaya Guru datta, Appaji and thanks so much for this message! And thanks to Puttuji for the comment explanation. Its very very inspiring and giving courage too. And the sentence..” build up a firm foundation with the bricks thrown at us by others” gives a total new view of point to some experiences in life and how to use them to go ahead instead of allowing them to discourage us. And true, these qualities mentioned, remember and to focus on this truth. Wonderful the letter upwards into the sky toward the light of the One sun! and the waterfall, which collects the water from all sides and focus it into one way, beautiful! in combination with the bhajan Balaka priyane and ganapathi who gives strength, removes obstacles (inside and outside) and gives this foundation, its wonderful all together! The MMS are made with so much Love, wisdom and care, its amazing me again and again and very deeply touching. Thanks so much!!!JGD

    • G Lalitha on July 23, 2012 at 6:46 am

    JGD, simply explained to be a great achiever.

    • Ravi Sunkara on July 23, 2012 at 6:53 am

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Sri Lord Ganapathi removes afflictions, By Praying to Pratyaksha Ganapathi ie our beloved Appaji , Sucess is always with us.

    Sree Guru Datta OM Namo Hanumate Namaha

  2. A very daunting task of having great qualities to get success. WIth Sagdguru’s grace alone this would be possible.
    The Bhajan Balaka Priyane is one of the oldest Bhajan composed and sung by Sri Swamiji. Probably early seventies. The Bhajan enumerates the 34 forms of Ganapathys.

    Appaji singing on Himself. Thanks Sadgurudeva

    • Sreevidya Balasubramaniam on July 23, 2012 at 7:59 am

    Jaya Guru Dutta! Swamiji and Puttuji are teaching me how to be successful in my spiritual path: Wise: choose what is real and permanent over unreal and relative, efficient: in connecting the dots or making linkages to spiritual and inner meanings of all that is happening externally, knowledge: of Sri Swamiji’s life stories that delineate the best of paths for a seeker, tolerant: to the external world I am forced to spend time on and the myriads of drama thereof, gentle in speech: to remind me Swamiji is listening to every thought and word from me, generous in praise: to illustrate everything happening to me is as per my Guru’s most compassionate plan for me, and everyone who comes in contact with me is helping me burn my karma.

    Swamiji is my God and can therefore communicate with me in any way Swamiji chooses, there is no miracle about it, but I just can’t stop being at awe each time I receive a message from Sri Swamiji and think how timely and in what depth in comes. Humble Pranaams Swamiji. Sreevidya NZ

    • Sahadeva on July 23, 2012 at 8:23 am

    Succes is fulfilment of your goals. This has to happen on a dignified way with respect to each other. Therefore the picture of Ganesh in your head will deblock your mind and water will stream freely. The meaning of this video is a nice expression of Swami Ji

    • on July 23, 2012 at 8:27 am

    Jaya Guru Datta Puttuji its the above said qualities in the message which we accuire by blindly following you puttuji.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha

    • on July 23, 2012 at 8:59 am

    Om Bala Ganapataye Namah
    Mögen wir heute mit Ganapatis Hilfe erfolgreich sein und trotz evtl. aufkommenden Erfolgsgefühlen weiterhin gegenwärtig auf Ganapati focusiert bleiben.
    Om Vira Ganapataye Namah

    Om Bala Ganapataye Namah
    May we today with Ganapatis help be successful and despite possibly feelings of success still continue currently focused remain to Ganapati.
    Om Vira Ganapataye Namah

  3. Success in Life has another meaning for me now. Not running after money, people, Job or something like that. You can let go. Place yourself on the feet of your Sadguru, follow His advice and success will come as a gift. Life is more meaningful and inner peace. Jaya Guru Datta

    • sridevi on July 23, 2012 at 9:09 am

    Jai Guru Datta! Ohlala, such a huge mountain of prerequisites to success! We have to become holy for being successful. Anyway, there is no other way than becoming holy – with Sadguru’s grace. And if we are successful even now as normal human beings, it is only Sadguru’s grace that gives the holy glow which makes success possible.Thank you Appajideva!

    • Padma on July 23, 2012 at 9:30 am

    Jaya Guru Datta, Sri Guru Datta, Om Namo Hanumathea Namaha.

    • Sekhar Anumolu on July 23, 2012 at 11:15 am

    JGD. Thank You Pujya Appaji. Everything we attempt to do and acchive is success whether it is small task or monumental. It proved in my life with tolerance, patience, hardwork, and being gentle, humble, and kind to others. Pujya Sadguradeva’s Blessing are always with us and Praying to Pujya Appaji’s Lotus Feet to shower His Blessings on all His Devotees. SGD.

    • Chakravarthy Terlapu on July 23, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Jaya Guru Hanuman, Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Sri Swamiji. This video immediately reminds me of Hanuman who shines in golden hue with all of these attributes. Success will chase one who can inculcate these qualities. The secret is that we should never chase success but inculcate and develop the qualities that will make success chase us. Each quality in this message needs to be meditated upon. It is said that essence of Gita is to teach us how to be efficient at work. We will be playing many roles in our lives. We have to play each role with total dedication and devotion without getting distracted and without worrying about the fruits of our action. This message provides us the essence of Gita and values that need to be cultivated to work efficiently.

    Om namo hanumate namaha

    • Anand. T on July 23, 2012 at 11:51 am

    Jaya Guru Datta!

    DATTA GURU” Indicating us that, Success is nearest to those whose efforts are intense and sincere. If we are sincere and intense, bring our total being, only then the ultimate is possible. Wise, Tolerant, Efficient, Knowledgeable, Gentle in speech, praising, and Sincerity are qualities which happens whenever we are totally in something. A child playing with his toys is sincere, totally in it, absorbed, only the play goes on. “, all the above qualities are a shadow of being total in something, it is always intense, but intensity is not necessarily always sincere, because sincerity belongs when we are totally in it.

    For the world, ego, gratification is the success, for us it is not, to be blissful is success whether anyone knows about us or not. Whether we live totally unknown, unheard of, unnoticed. But if we are blissful, we have succeeded.

    We are all grateful to those who are behind all these amazing concepts, visuals and videos, which are motivating all of us. Simply with regards we say “Thank you” all of them.

    For giving this opportunity to us, thank YOU Guru Datta! Thank YOU Puttuji!

    Sri Guru Datta!

    Jgd. I will try to build these qualities. It sounds easy but takes great efforts to practically do them. Thank you for such a wonderful message. I will try to be a better person.

    Pujya Appaji is showing us the way to success. We are blessed to get the guidance from our beloved Sadguru along with Nama Sankirtana of the Lord. Thanks and humble Pranams to Sadgurudeva. JGD Lakshmi

    • Manjunath Melbourne Australia on July 23, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, I have been hearing this beautiful Bhajans since early seventies which explains various forms of Ganesha. I am sure that we will attain success at the end if we follow the instructions perfectly that comes from our Sadguru. One should have positive attitude and faith to attain success. Sri Guru Datta.

  4. Jai Guru Datta Swamiji! Thank You for this “enlightening” video on Success! As Ganapati You are
    always showering Your Grace on Your devotees and removing the obstacles. I feel this to be an especially timely message and although it is indeed a challenge to develop all of the qualities for sucess as You state them, You are always giving the tools and guidance to get there. Gives the feeling “Never Give Up”, for with Your Grace Success is possible!!!

    • on July 23, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I just loved this mornings teachingsand video and music! Love the cloud stairways to the heaven. Wit these attributes one can indeed realize success, not only in daily life but in the spiritual. With Swamiji’s advice of the key points which creates a successful person, The sky’s the limit! All we need to do is take the first step… love how you used the clouds as steps. We usually associate clouds(like in a cloudy day) with rain and gloomy days. But here, clouds come to our aid as stepping stones. It is said that failures are like stepping stones to success too. So we must not let failures ‘cloud’ our hopes of success! Thankyou for this brilliant video Swamiji and Happy MOON day!JGD

    • Padmaja on July 23, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta swamiji,
    We will follow the same. Please bless us.

    Om Baala Ganapatayee Namaha
    Om Vira Ganapatayee Namaha

    Pranams to the Lotus feet of Sri Swamiji. Thank you for the checklist of qualities on which we’ve to develop for being successful.

    Thanks PuttuGam Ji, Its like the treatment of a mother that I feel here. Mother cooks the food for us and when we are unable to eat them on our own, she further mixes them well and feeds us. Similarly Sadguru Deva is providing us with the Food for thought through the messages, and again in another form Sadguru Deva is explaining them again in detail as our poor minds are unable to comtemplate the deeper essence of the message.

    • Srinivas Mullapudi on July 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta: First of all, I like Ganapathy relaxing near the seashore and steps depicting the path to success. I still consider the attributes wise, efficient, knowledgeable, tolerable, gentle and generosity are possible only through Sadguru as we are all born with Karma and all our actions are directed accordingly.

    • Nahusha Egon Hürlimann on July 23, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta these are very demanding qualities and they require a very balanced personality. I want to behave in this direction. thank you dear Swamiji for reminding us and for singing this wonderful bhajan to the God eliminating obstacles.

    • Vanaja on July 23, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    I bow down to Ganapati – may HE give me the strength to overcome obsticals on my journey and develop towards the described noble qualities. Pranams to Appaji.

    • Radha from Switzerland on July 23, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    JAYA GURU DATTA! Such clear advices helps me indeed to exercise more consciously and knowingly for such a high aim! Thank You so much for Your precious words, Appaji! S.G.D.!

    • usha sarva on July 23, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    • Jagadish on July 24, 2012 at 2:05 am

    Success! All of us strive hard to achieve it. Pujya Gurudeva, through this MMS shows us the way to achieve it. In this bhajan “Balaka Priyane”, poojya Gurudeva explains about the different forms of Ganapati.
    Thank you Gurudeva for this guidance towards success. I pray at your lotus feet, to bless us with all the Success in our Spiritual journey, with YOU. Jaya Guru Datta.

    • Maurice Clarke on July 24, 2012 at 5:18 am

    A hearty thanks for that explanation, Lord Puttuji. I did not see the links at all. May we be blessed with the humility to see that we know nothing and begin the quest for success and be further blessed to remember all these teachings and how to apply them minute to minute, day to day. Thanks again.JGD

    • annessa on July 24, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta, thank you this detailed meaning behind another beautiful message from our dear Appaji.

    • Birgitta on July 24, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    wenn ich all die aufgezählten Tribute anwende werde ich in allem Erfolg haben oder den Erfolg begünstigen und die Himmelsleiter hinaufklettern(Erleuchtungsweg)alles andere führt mich ins Verderben…
    die Bhajansmusik ist super schön da wippt mein Herz mit …Dankeschön für deine unendliche Güte und Geduld…immer wieder und immer wieder…

    • mitradeva3 on July 25, 2012 at 3:40 am

    JGD PUTTUJI’s explanation makes me better understand the 6 fundamentals of success. Wisdom is needed to know I know nothing, that I have to learn efficiently. Tolerance will then allow me to accept help, even by critics, gentle speech will help me to win the heart of my preceptors and praising them generously to understand their value. Thank YOU, PUTTUJI, for guidance, and Athma Katha is definitely needed. SGD

    • Phani Bhushan Attaluri on July 25, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Wow! Thank you Pujya Appaji! Your pearls of wisdom had always these basic recipes to do well in chosen fields for us. The lovely MMS would only substantiate the sure recipe for success. The previous MMS asks us how to have focus and the present one , if followed, would facilitate the sucessful relationships and build on the trust among other human beings/colleagues/family.

    The music/video of “Balakapriyane”/ Lord Ganapati is enchanting and very relevant too to the message, i feel.

    My humble prostrations to our Lord, Sri Sri Ganapati Sachichidanda Swamiji ( Lord Ganapati himself) to bless us and the world to give strength to convert the challenges to opportunities and become successful.

    Jaya guru datta… Sree Guru Datta


    • on July 26, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    JGD Appaji! I immediately had to think that nowadays in Kaliyuga, many people think that the way to success is totally opposite to what You have stated. They might think they need to be egoistic and exploit other people etc. Even if they have ‘success’, it will not last for long. You cannot escape your karma. Please bless me to withstand the temptations of ‘quick success’ and rather have faith in this cosmic law. Om namo hanumate namah!

    • on July 28, 2012 at 6:46 am

    JGD Puttuji
    This MMS shows me that success needs not only hard work, struggling, pushing…. Ganapathi in the picture and in the Bhajan (unfortunately I understand only very little of the lyrics) show us that the qualities you mention can only be developed if we surrender to God. Ganapathi in the picture seems waiting for us.

    In surrendering and developing Bhakti, we get more humble. With Bhakti we feel also deeper love for others, wherefrom grows more tolerance, gentle speech and generosity to encourage others.

    When we surrender faithfully to God – to Ganapathi – and let us guide (in the pic “carry” by Him), we develop more inner knowledge and become more efficient. At the end success may be here, not because we were urging for it, but because it became a natural result – in other words: we were gifted with it. In again other words: Ganapathi might be putting necessary obstacles for our sake, at the same time removing other impedimental obstacles on our way.

    Thank you Puttuji for giving us the possibility of commenting these MMS’. Though at the beginning it seemed like a duty, in writing I realize that the MMS is enfolding itself in a deeper way and although commenting is not so easy for me, it gives me energy. It is in a way like communicating with you. Thank you so much !

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Various steps to be followed for success….. Success is everyone’s dream, but success is enjoyed by only those who put in their efforts. May lord bless us all with success in both worldly and spiritual path.
