  1. hiranya – golden ; garbha – womb} {aniruddha – uncontrolled, without obstacles, self-willed, Vishnu principle}

    Hiranyagarbha – The golden Sun is the womb of all creation. That energy has to reach the earth in the right amount, through the sky, for activities of this ecosystem to sustain. That’s why we love a clear sky, without much clouds. Clearer the sky, better the activity

    The same golden fire in the sun energises the earth from within

    Aniruddha – The Vishnu principle energising us from within. We experience that principle through our mind, which is our only medium of congition. That’s why it is important to keep it clean(r). Clear(n)er the mind, easier the solution- MMS74

    Million thankful pranams, Sathguru!

    Like a loving mother who dishes the same nutrition in various forms & tastes so that the child can assimilate, you present changeless truths in changing 1 minute formats for us to internalize. We’re feeling cleaner. Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji

    When I have confusion, I know, now a must clean the mind. I do it with concentration on Swamiji, on a mantra and so on. Then soon I see more clear. Regularly I fall in this confusion, but because I know how I can handle it, it isn’t so bad. It is only the sign to go into concentration, that’s all!

    Jaya Guru Datta Swamiji, Yesterday, I was reading Joseph Campbell’s collection of readings on the various teachings about light in Eastern religions. He was discussing the Indian metaphor of the ripples in the water of a lake distorting the reflection of the moon in the water and how that is used to compare how the thoughts in our mind distort the inner light. Today, Sri Swamiji reinforces this lesson again with this MMS. I always marvel at these synchronicities, no matter how often they happen–your little two second miracles that let us know you are always right there teaching us….In Dallas, You discussed the five organs of action and the five organs of knowledge and how we should surrender our experiences to God. Our senses can certainly lead us astray and cause defects in our mind…Today, again you remind us to purify our minds. My vision is dim, but I pray that with practice that inner light will become clearer and clearer each day…

    Jai Guru Datta,
    before I met Sri Swamiji Iused to smoke cigarrets, drink alcohol and sometimes even smoke hash. That´s long gone. Being with him, though He is physically far away is slowly but surely changing my habbits and thus my mind. The latest addiction that fell away was watching tv. It feels like Sri Swamiji is awakening my mind to the light within and so all unnessecary thing fall away. Next thing might be bad thought and bad feelings. I´m looking foreward to loose these bad traits also. My humble prostrations to your lotusfeet, Sri Swamiji.
    Sri Guru Datta

    jgd Swami ji Your soft smile with hand fold request to keep the mind clean shows Your concern for Your children. Worldly desires and attachments cause the defects in the mind to blur the inner vision. In Your holy company by obeying Your commands like chanting holy names of Lord, sharing, serving humanity with a clear thought in mind that i am on this earth in this body to realize my Self with Satguru’s grace, i don’t have the rights to own any thing just use the opportunities and reach back to SATCHITANANDA onhn sgd

    • Madhavi on December 3, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! How difficult it is to keep the mind clean! So many useless and „bad“ thought are coming all the time! Please bless us to improve from day to day in controlling better and better our mind and keeping it cleaner and cleaner, so that our inner light can shine stronger and stronger… Thank you for all the means you are giving us for that purpose, dear Appaji!

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji, it’s too much of pressure and conflict in work, society and life but certainly clears everything in my mind by hearing swamiji words, music, sadguru seva and bajans.

    Jaya Guru Datta! In order not only to complain about how weak I am so many times to have a blurred mind, I rather would like to thank You, Appaji, for all the cleansing for years now. I don’t know in what state of a dirty mind I would be now hadn’t You guided me, but I sure know I would feel my inner light much much less, if at all! Sri Guru Datta!

    By seeing Appaji’s various MMS, according to me the mind has got an important role in our life. We can say even the mind is responsible for all our actions. (1) the mind is responsible for all our unwanted desires. (2) The mind is responsible to develop Ego in our life. From all these we can notice our mind is responsible for everything. Therefore we have to control or in other words we should be able to drive our mind. Here I recollect Appaji’s MMS 2 stating that first cultivate noble thoughts in our mind. If we are able to do that, naturally the mind will become clear. Similarly through MMS84, Sadguru purifies our mind. At the sametime as per MMS 87 Appaji is giving warning to us that unwanted desires mislead our mind and give despondency. Further the MMS 109 keeps our mind perfectby unlocking anything that remains unexplained. So all these MMS are very closely connected to today’s MMS also. According to me Appaji is making us to refresh or reminding the earlier MMS also so that we will be more alert and concentrate to develop the spiritual path. Puttuji you have given a nice explanation and connected the photography to the MMS and the music is also giving a soothing effect and keep the mind clean. Therefore Appaji, we follow your teachings carefully and we need your help to come out from darkness to light so that like the Sun our mind will also become clear. Further Appaji’s speech on 2 nd December at Newyork is also very apt for today’s MMS. JGD.

    • svetha on December 4, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Mein liebster GURUDEVA, von Herzen danke ich DIR für DEINE immerwährende Unterstützung.
    DU gibst uns so viele Möglichkeiten, um unseren Mind zu reinigen, zu klären. DEINE täglichen Botschaften sind mir diesbezüglich eine grosse Hilfe und ich will mich bemühen, DEINE Lehren wahrzumachen, wie z.B. am 4.8.: “Be positive always “, am 18.9.: “As you think so you become” und am 25.9.:“Eat simple and natural food”.
    Ich verneige mich vor DIR.

    • tunga on December 4, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    it is so important to keep the mind clean and to purify ourselves again and again, again and again. sometimes I feel that there is so much mental contamination all around. I often feel something like a dark cloud or a grey haze encasing me. so there must have been a defect in the mind and I struggle to clear it out. may I be able, by the grace of my beloved sadguru, to be purified more and more so that Your Divine light can shine from within.

    • on December 5, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta

    Excellent saying…. mind is the culprit for all the chaos in life.
    we should always keep our mind clean using the tools provided by Pujya Sri Swamiji like Kriya Yoga, Divya Nama Sankeertana…… etc.
    Thank you Appaji for this beautiful MMS message.
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Sarumati on December 6, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    This video reminds me of the new Zodiac Healing CD.
    It makes the mind so crystal clear, like snowflakes
    glittering on pure water in the sun.
    How lovely !

    Thank You, dear Datta .

    • Archana Penukonda on December 12, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! The mind is like a crystal. When there are impurities in the crystal, it blurs the light and doesn’t reflect properly. But the crystal can also absorb energy and when it has no defects, can act as a powerful instrument of healing. All possession, passion, emotions and feelings are in the mind. But, when we can keep the mind free of these, it can act as a channel to tune with the divine. My mind makes me do a lot of unnecessary things, think of a lot of unnecessary thoughts and say a lot of unnecessary words because I allow it to. You already blessed us with the Guru mantra to keep our minds clean. With Your teachings and Your grace, I hope I can cleanse my mind and make it an efficient instrument of spiritual progress. Thank You, Swamiji, for relentlessly working on me. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    Very beautiful MMS Appaji! Just like the clouds, the thoughts and inner enemies are fleeting…they are meant to pass away soon.. We need to develop control and improve discipline so that the clouds are reduced and the shining Sun can be seen
