  1. Every element of creation lives its potential. The sun, moon, stars, earth.. for example, follow their dharma.. live their potential. Unlike man, none of these elements can make choices about their behavior. And yet there is a sense of consistency & discipline in how they behave.

    The moons face changes every day. It grows & shrinks.. but the moon lives its dharma of going around the earth, and reflecting the sun’s glory.

    Man is the crowning glory of all creation. Yet, millions carry their unused potential to their grave. What a waste! How heavenly this earth can be, if only everyone can understand and live their full potential!

    Pranams Sathgurudeva!

    Playing the piano, you set the perfect mood for our meditation. And Chandra (Moon).. is perfect metaphor to reflect upon, in pursuit of our self-realization. Our fortunes may grow or shrink.. but we’ll stay focussed on serving your cause. Doing so, we’ll live our potential.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! Contemporary society teaches us to have career goals, to write down our wishes to manifest material things, to set exercise or weight loss goals, but little to nothing is said about setting a spiritual goal. Perhaps that’s because we have no clear understanding of what our goal should be . We have few living examples of those who are true spiritual seekers. But in our lives we have Swamiji, who is willing to guide us at every turn. All we have to do is ask…..sometimes the question/request begins with ” I don’t know how….” Sri Guru Datta!

    For attaining this goal I have a very good job: I work as therapist. Like that I work every day with people and see, why they have which problem. Then I look for a solution for this problem. I all this process Swamiji is helping me to understand more and more. Like this I learn a lot about our human-being.

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    Thank you for guiding us to that goal, dear Sadguru Deva! It is a very long way. It needs much patience and many good qualities that you are teaching us. Let’s follow the Master! Sri Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta – कस्य त्वं वा कुत आयातः? तत्त्वं चिन्तय तदिह भ्रातः|| – i remember this from life History of Appaji (quoted from Sri Adi Shankarachaarya). This comes in the context of revitalizing taata gaaru and is an epitome of this MMS. Thank You Appaji for guiding us all in the journey to know ourselves. This is imbibed into all the devotees/participants in all the ways Appaji shows us – be it Kriya Yoga, Puja, Homa, Music, Birds Aviary, Kishkindha Mulika Vana, Dharma Dhwaja, Temples…. the list goes on and on… It is only upto the person carrying the vessel to get the water from the ocean.

    Jgd.The Lofty Ice covered mountains show the mighty nature of the MMS.A deep questioning of oneself will show how superficial are our quest for God.The Ultimate reality is not the idol that is standing in a temple, but the one residing in the Self.Self realization is finding the Truth,the God ever present in us.

    • Vanaja on January 8, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Puttuji points out our goal in human life. We shall strive for discovering our true nature.
    In earlier mms He said we need to practice meditation and self-enquiry. If we succeed to do this simultaneously we will realize our true nature (Sat-Chit-Ananda). We will realize that our true self (Atman) is identical with transcendent self Brahman (paramatam).
    I believe in the words of my Guru, I have no doubts. Still to realize this seems far away in this very moment. I know it is because of my ignorance and lack of effort.
    I pray to keep up daily prayers and meditation – even if it is only a little, I am very grateful to have restarted again. Only because of the mms program that started last year. I feel truly blessed.
    Dear Puttuji, my heart is full of joy – because of YOU!!! You give me courage and many support. I feel Your presents.
    Pranams to your lotus feets and always yours,
    Sri Guru Datta

    • Archana Penukonda on January 8, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    An earlier MMS instructed us to ask ourselves “Who am I”. That was because discovering the answer to that question is the goal in human life. It’s because this line of questioning holds the key to ultimate happiness and peace, dissolving away illusions and revealing the truth. This MMS is very beautifully presented. Pujya Swamiji, as Atma Saakshi, as Parabrahman seems like a divine light against the black background. Yet, He is also the guide that shows us the path to that divine light. In other words, He’s not only the destination, He’s also the journey. So, if we are able to understand and be constantly aware that we are all really manifestations of the Parabrahman that Sri Swamiji is and that this body is the temple of the living God, we are probably on our way to understanding truth. It’s delightfully ironical that we know the answer to the question (philosophically speaking), yet we can’t experience it. With the grace of Pujya Swamiji, may we all achieve the goal in human life.

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Balaramaya Namah
    Human life is a big adventure. On its long journey the most wonderful moment is when we met our Sadguru Sri Swamiji. What a huge change He brings into our life! It is as when life has started once again. As if somebody has switched on the light. Not only for the eyes, but also for the ears and the mind, too. It is such a big joy to explore the new inner and outer worlds and their connections. We get fantastic teachings on all what belongs to the daily life and their Divine nature. And we have possibly the chance to discover our true Divine Self.
    It is indeed paradise on earth.

    Jaya Guru Datta! May I listen to Your teachings more and more; and even more important: may I put Your wisdom and advice into practice more and more! Then I shall be blessed with discovering my true nature by experience, not theoretically a tiny glance of it like now. Sri Guru Datta!

    • lilashah on January 8, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. I feel so fortunate. So blessed. Others are born and live their lives never knowing anything of their true self. It is only through association with Sri Swamiji that I have discovered that the self is Sri Swamiji… Is Sachchidananda. Though I am an ignorant person who has not lived life properly, I have somehow caught glimpses of the truth. How do I thank you for this? I love you and I am so very grateful. Sri Guru Datta.

    • Dr S J Saikumar on January 8, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    The first step to reach this ultimate goal is to find our Sadguru, and as far as I am concerned this has been achieved. Now Appaji will advice us, bless us and guide us to our ultimate destination.

    • Perla Balaji on January 8, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    By practising Sri Swamiji’s sayings, leads to the path of perfection. My heartfelt prostrations to the lotus feet of Sri Sadguru Deva

    • on January 8, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    In today’s MMS , Appaji has given a warning to us, as our aim in our lifeisto know our real potential and to make use of the same in the proper way and not only that it should be helpful for others also. In otherwords it is a kind of developing our sathsang also. Puttuji you have given a nice explanation about the other elements of creations, like Son , Moon, stars etc who live in it’s potential and do their duty truth fully. This is because dharma is born from truth, MMS 152 and that is it’s true nature. Here I remember Appaji’s words saying that due to our good karmas in the previous birth, in this janma also God has given the birth as humanbeing and it is our duty to really make use of our potential in the proper way by living withinour capacity and also do good deeds , helping others, develop sathsang. But rememberthat all these things , we have to do with in our dharma and that is the true nature. At the same time in this kaiyuga people are interested more in worldly pleasures and forget about their real potential and they feel bad if any thing goes on wrong due to their bad karmas. Appaji says when the God has given this birth , it is already written by Him what is to be given and not to be given. Therefore like moon , we have to face in our life both good and bad and at the sametime we should be able to live with in it’s potential with out deviating from dharma. But again here to know our real potential , we have to follow the spiritual path through our Sadguru , then only we will reach our goal. JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta Appaji _/\_/\_!!

    The relationship between a Guru and a devotee is a relationship based on bhakti (devotion) and Shraddha (earnestness). Sadguru is an ocean of peace and mountain of kindness.

    His form is love and Shamadamadi Sath Swarupam. One’s true nature can be discovered only by the grace of Sadguru. Sadguru gives strength to discover and to do Sadhana and takes us in the righteous path.
    The knowing of Dharma is awakened through the service of the Guru; Guru Kripa is essential at each and every step we take. Following Appaji and practicing Appaji’s words leads to self-discovery and self-realization. Appaji’s holy feet are Our Vaikunta !!

    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    ఒకరిమీద పూర్తీ అవగాహనకి రావటం, అంతకంటే ముందుగా తనతత్వమేమేమిటో తనే తెలుసుకోవటం చాల కష్టమైనా విషయం. ప్రతి సాధారణ మానవుడికి ఒక ముసుగు వుంటుంది.అందరు మేకవన్నె పులులు కానప్పటికీ సందర్భాన్ని పట్టి అప్పుడప్పుడూ అబద్ధమాడక తప్పదు, అటువంటి వాటి చేతిలో అమాయకులు మోసపోక తప్పదు. స్నేహితులు, బంధువులు ఎవరినీ పూర్తిగా నమ్మలేని స్థితి. కొంత ప్రయాణం తరువాతకాని ఒక అంచనాకు రాలేము. చూసే మాలో లోపంవుందా, అవతలి వ్యక్తీ ఆలోచనలోవుందా అర్ధంకాదు. ఈ స్థితినుంచి బైటకు తెచ్చేది సద్గురువైన శ్రీస్వామీజి ఒక్కరే. చేసే ప్రతిపని స్వామీజీ మనలోనే ఉండి గమనిస్తున్నారన్న సత్యం మేము తెలుసుకుంటే అది నిజంగా మా ప్రవర్తనను మారుస్తుంది, మా గురించి మాకు తెలుస్తుంది. సందేశం బావుంది అప్పాజీ.జయగురుదత్త.

    JGD Appaji
    Everything You created has a defined order. everything except for us humans, follow this order diligently. We have been gifted with this human life after so many janmas to understand the true nature of oneself.But we keep on indulging in worldly tasks and get carried away, forgetting our main purpose. We are indeed very lucky and blessed to have Appaji with us in this janma to guide us and make us understand our full potential. Let us start the beautiful journey with matter how long it takes, we have Him with us holding our hands through all the lifetimes..that itself is bliss.

    • Joseph on January 16, 2013 at 1:30 am

    Ultimate goal of human is to be happy always in all circumstances and that is true nature of soul within, which is always in bliss. Unfortunately we are not able to enjoy this bliss because of limiting ourselves to body, so for the entire life we keep searching for this permanent truth and attaining this. May Lord bless us all with eternal bliss.

    • Sarumati on January 19, 2013 at 4:35 am

    When I listen to the synthesizer sound of this video, I feel blessed. It is the pure sound of Chandra to me.
    It clears the mind of all impurities, like striving for name, fame, money etc., forgetting about true nature
    Our potential is all so different, everybody has another potential, and yet, on one level, we are all the same.
    The spark within us is the same divine spark of the true light.
    To realize this spark that is surrounded by all these shells and crusts and give it a spiritual peeling,
    so to speak, is our greatest aim in life, and our most difficult one.

    How can we achieve? By a good idol and good striving, again and again,
    What can I do best and where do I feel best, according to my own possibilities?
    How can I feel authentic and truthful? The birdies with their cheerful chirping help me every day to realize
    the beauty of nature.
    They also clear my mind of all impurities.

    • svetha on February 2, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, please help us again and again to find our true nature.
    I thank YOU for YOUR patience, for all the possibilities YOU offer us, so that we can finally reach this goal.
