The one who travels to the depths of the ocean is not proud about rising to the surface ~ 11 Apr 2013

  1. {Vijitendriya: He who has won (vijita) over his senses (indriyas). Hanuman}
    A falcon grew up in a chicken barn & hence he never learnt to fly into the ocean. His Master recognized him, took him into the sea, held him high up in his hands & commanded him to FLY! The falcon flapped his wings & rose into the sky. Having experienced the joy of living his potential, he never returned to the barn.
    We’re spiritual beings who’re in for a human experience. We’re endowed with senses – our windows of perception – that lead us to knowledge, reflection & then realization. But we get caught up with our senses at the surface (body) level & like that falcon we live a chickens life. Sad!
    Pranams Vijitendriya Sathgurudeva!
    Thank you, Master for recognizing our potential & commanding us to rise above our senses. You want us to shed such attachment, lighten up & dive deep into our inner self.. to experience the same joy that you do. We will.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – what a wonderful message on the Yugaadi. This MMS reinvigorates every one towards the shores of victory, aptly on this very day of the Vijaya (victory) yugaadi. Thanks a lot Appaji for the inspiration and never-ending compassion. Jayaho Appaji

    Swamiji, by your choice, you are in the deepest depths of this ocean of samsara (worldly life of humans, where we identify with the body and think that each of our ‘I’ s is limited to the name and form of our individual bodies) along with us, at the rock bottom. But unlike us, you do not drown in the sorrows of the world, because you know your way around here, you are the master of this Maya, illusion. You know it like the back of your hand. You can freely roam here and remain untouched and not even get wet. With equal ease you also rise to the surface of the ocean to breathe freely the fresh air and not just that, you are able to rise to the highest dimensions. This is all YOU, your kingdom, your nature, your form. Where is the question of pride for the king who roams in His kingdom as per His free will? It is our small, foolish minds that fall in the trap of ego and feel arrogant for achievements that are not even ours. For the smallest step risen, we blow our proud trumpets.

    తడవకుండా, మునగకుండా, సుఖదుఃఖాలకు అతీతంగా, స్వేచ్ఛగా, సంసారసముద్రపు అట్టడుగు భాగాన, మనలను ఉద్ధరించటం కోసం దిగి వచ్చి, మనతో సమానంగా సంచరించగల శక్తి, దయ, పరమాత్మస్వరూపులైన సద్గురుదేవులకు తప్ప మరెవరికుంటుంది? వారికి మన తాపత్రయాలేవీ అంటవు. అఖిలాండకోటి బ్రహ్మాండనాయకునికి, సముద్రము, ఆకాశము, అంతరిక్షము, వేరువేరా? అన్నీ తానే అయినవానికి, లోతుకి దిగానని, పైకి తేలానని, సంచరించగలనని, గర్వం ఉండటం సాధ్యమా? ‘నేను’ ఈ చిరు శరీరాన్ని, ఈ చిన్న మనస్సును, చిటికెలో ప్రాణం కోల్పోయే జీవిని, అని భ్రమించి, ఈ శరీరంతో జరుగుతున్న పనులన్నీ తన శక్తితోనే జరుగుతున్నాయనే మిథ్యలో మునిగి, మూర్ఖత్వంతో సుఖదుఃఖాలకు బానిస అయి, మనిషి మాత్రమే తన ప్రతి చిన్న గెలుపుకీ, అది తన స్వంత కృషి వలననే సాధ్యమైనదని విర్రవీగుతాడు. గర్వపడతాడు. గొప్పలు చెప్పుకుంటాడు. సద్గురు కృప వలన కలిగిన జయాలకు కూడా, తన యోగ్యతే దానికి కారణమని చాటుకుంటాడు. మమ్మల్ని అహంకారమనే కాలసర్పపు కాటునుండి విడిపించండి దత్త సద్గురు ప్రభో! ఈ విజయనామ సంవత్సరంలో మాలోని అజ్ఞానం అపజయం పొందనీ, అని ప్రార్థిస్తున్నాను. జయ గురు దత్త

    On the auspicious UGADI day, Appaji has given a good teachings to us through MMS 316. By seeing this MSG, according to me, Appaji is expected us to come to the level of selfrealization , especially in this Kaliyuga .In otherwords through Appaji’s teachings in the spiritual path one should be able to know about self realization and not only that it should be applied practically in our life also. Once we reach to that level, we will be equipped with good knowledge and thereby we can come out from pride, jealous , ego and selfishness. More over we can control our mind and at one stage we can drive our mind also and that is what we have to practice in our life. To my experience after going through all these MMS, it will definitely help us to develop selfrealization and control our mind also. Iam really greatful to Appaji for this wonder project which no body has done. Remember that these are all for our own benefit only which Appaji is doing and it also uplift our spiritual knowledge .puttuji you have also given a nice explanation here about the falcon how he realised it’s capacity and act accordingly . Similarly we can see how Hanuman has won over senses and it only through self realization and also through the blessings of Lord Rama . Also if read or see Datta Dharsan , we can realize how lord Datta spent for deep meditation inside the see for a long period and come out without any pride and blessed the devotees. Similarly in this Kaliyuga our Appaji is nothing but lord Datta Himself and capable of doing anything and shape us to develop selfrealization , provided we should also from our side follow His words and teachings. This will only lead us to have a peaceful and successful life in this janma and that is what we ultimately needed. JGD.

    Knowledge and experience are two tools that makes a person wise and humble. Beautiful message of being humble in behaviour with the wisdom of equality of joy and sorrow.
