  1. {Ucchista Ganapathy: Bestows harmony and joy}
    Electricity flows from higher to lower potential. Water flows from higher to lower level.
    Guru is the storehouse of Spiritual knowledge. If that knowledge has to flow from the Guru, the recipient has to be looking up to it. He has to yearn for it with his hands raised up to the Guru in all humility.
    Guru is an Ocean of Mercy. One has to empty his cup & be thirsty. That thirst attracts the Ocean of Mercy to flow into the cup, until it starts to overflow. Again, the flow resumes only after the cup is emptied.
    Saashtanga Namaskarams at your Holy Feet, Sathgurudeva!
    Give us the humility to keep our cups empty. Let’s never fall into the trap of feeling we know it all. For, true knowledge is knowledge of our own higher nature. Please be the Ucchista Ganapathy in our heart, filling it with the higher, spiritual knowledge. In that feeling of harmony & joy we will find our fulfilment.
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

Prayers to Lotus Feet to help us develop humility, to help us untangle from the million tangles we got into, through the myriad of births. Appaji ne sarana gathi. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta. I was alone in our apartment with my then baby daughter when I called out to Lord Shiva. I didn’t even know that God is real and I still don’t truly understand how any of this is possible. Thank you Mother Swamiji for answering my call. I am your slave and my love for you is indescribable. I love you, I love you, I love you. Prostrations to our beloved Satguru who is Lord Shiva and Mother Goddess and in fact everything and being comprehension of this human mind. Om Namah Shivaya. Sri Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta! Unquestionably, the biggest blessing in anyone’s life is the Sathguru. I have read about many devotees who thirsted for a Guru before they found Sri Swamiji. I am eternally grateful to my parents whose spiritual yearnings made it possible for us to have Sri Swamiji as our Sathguru. I see some changes in my own thinking in the last several years, changes I didn’t think I would ever undergo. I was driven a lot by my career but that seems to be changing slowly. I know for a fact that Swamiji has been giving me lessons based on my own experiences. He’s teaching me to keep the mind clean so I absorb those lessons. I hope that with Sri Swamiji’s grace, I can always nurture a thirst for spiritual growth. I hope that my thirst for spiritual knowledge can help me break from all the shackles of ego and attachment. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Yes, dear Swamiji, I experienced this, was waiting for “my Master” for around 20 years. Finally you blessed me in revealing yourself. I am so happy you took me into your boat.
    Tons of thanks – I can’t express enough in words. But I am sure you will feel it.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Ucchista Ganapataye Namah
    For me there was always a longing to understand the world. This is why i studied physics. Real understanding however comes only when the spiritual world can also be understood and experienced. Here Sri Swamiji teaches us in such a wonderful and so beautiful way.
    Pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sadgurudeva. Thank You for this great MMS.

    • Hema on March 17, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Dear Sri Swamji, thank you for accepting me with all my faults and limitations. Thank you for changing me for better and for teaching me about spirituality. Your devotees are the luckiest in the universe to have YOU as Sadgurdeva! This is the greatest wealth. May we be worthy of your grace!
    Jaya Guru Datta. Om namo Hanumate namaha.

    • on March 17, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Appaji, please bless me that I attain a good balance between longing for spiritual knowledge by learning it theoretically (e.g. in Your books) and by practising it (e.g. through meditation and seva). Sri Guru Datta! Om namo hanumate namah!

    • Venkat on March 17, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – the thirst for knowledge makes the aspirant seek the Sadguru first. The thirst of the seeker showing up will attract the Guru. Once the relationship is approved by the Sadguru, the spiritual journey starts with an intended end consequence of making the self realized. The most important, basic and needed foundational ingradient is the intensity of the thirst and quet for knowledge – aka gnaana trushna. Appaji has spoken about this entire process in the Guru Gita discourse

    • Anjana on March 17, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Jgd I pray to always be thirsting for knowledge so that I might be on your ‘radar’ SGD thank you Appaji for these messages and the endearing bird video !

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!

    Guru kee baanee sunalo – Jnaana kee trishnaa badhaavo
    Antara timira hataavo bhaayee – Veda puraana pe shraddhaa badhaavo !!
    Datta ke gun tum gaavo bhaayee – Datta ke gun tum gaavo
    (Listen to the Guru’s words, develop thirst for spiritual knowledge. Chase away the inner darkness, brother!! develop more interest and faith in the scriptures!!
    Happily Sing the praises of Datta, brother!! Sing the praises of Datta!!)

    The aim of the Guru is to enkindle the lamp of wisdom, remove the illusion, and to reveal the Soul. That is Pujya Sri Swamiji’s aim. To achieve this aim, Jayalakshmi Mata has personally initiated Sadgurudeva into the 12 precepts.

    This MMS is closely related to the following the MMSes:
    God is looking for a clean heart to rest and radiate His joy.(MMS 284)
    f you beg for guidance from the Guru, your prayer will be answered.(MMS 271)
    Unless there is an intense craving for knowledge, wisom cannot be gained (MMS 273).
    We will follow you Appaji !!
    Sri Jayalakshmi Mata ki jai.!!Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda GuruNath Maharaj ki jai !!
    Sri Guru Datta Hanuman Ki Jai !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    By looking in to this MMS, we should realize the importance of a Sadguru to develop our spiritual path especially in this Kaliyuga . Further if you go deep in to this MSG, how a teacher is building up the carrier of a student, similarly we need aSadguru in our life to develop our spiritual path till our life. This is because to acquire the spiritual knowledge there is no end and there is no limit also. In this Kaliyuga , people are more interested in worldly pleasures and unwanted desires. But remember that it is not going to be permanent At the sametime in a latter date they think about the spiritual path and will be thirsty to acquire the same . But it is too late and may not be able to succeed . Therefore from this MSG it is a lesson for us that we should follow the spiritual path from our young age itself and show our eagerness to develop the same through our Sadguru . In such circumstances the Guru will also be happy and will be attracted on us to acquire such knowledge. Thank You , Appaji to remind us timely and please always recharge our spiritual knowledge through Your words and teachings and accordingly we follow You. The photography and the music are apt to the MSG. JGD.

    I was searching for a Teacher –
    YOU came into my life and accepted me as YOUR student.
    I was hungry to progress with my spiritual life –
    YOU feed me with Mantras, with YOUR Bhajans and Teachings.
    I was yearning for Love –
    YOU show me how to live it.

    My beloved SADGURUDEVA, please help us to make the right steps to feel and to offer YOU our thirst of spiritual knowledge.
    Thank YOU when YOU may be the UCCHISTA GANAPATHY in our hearts.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on March 19, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    JGD Appaji
    I am not sure I had any spiritual thirst when I first experienced Sri Swamiji in this life. Maybe due to the punya from past births, He blessed me. I only pray for His company in all my future births too and to be in selfless seva always..He knows what knowledge to bestow and when to..I just want to be with Him.

    • Maurice Clarke on March 20, 2013 at 4:50 am

    JGD. Dear Swami, may it be Your grace to give us that thirst. JGD.

    • Sarumati on March 26, 2013 at 6:51 am

    Dear Puttuji has summed it up beautifully again.
    This is a real good Company of MMS ! Thanks a lot !

    • Joseph on May 26, 2013 at 8:26 am

    Good teacher is in search of real good, obedient student, similarly spiritual GURU is also in search of true, dedicated students. May lord bless us all to be seekers of spirituality and earn true GURU who can always guide us in right path.
