  1. Dearest Ganapathiroopa Sathgurudeva!
    How we wish God waves to us from our inner being like you wave from that clean & green farm?
    How we wish we can cut a seed and pull out a tree? No way.
    Trees have to be grown from the seed. Until then they remain hidden in there. Growing them is what farming is all about. And you are the Farmer teaching us how.
    Every one of these 308 MMSes have been lessons in such farming
    If yesterday’s lesson was about the WHAT – Advaita, today’s is about the HOW – Recognising & nourishing that Universal Self in our Inner Self. It is simpler said, than done. Keeping a temple or a photo clean is easier than cleaning up our hearts. So, God prefers being in the temple or the photo.
    No. It’s we who prefer to keep Him there, and then blame Him for not being accessible.
    Thanks a ton for opening our eyes to look inward. We are. We’re learning to keep that farm clean & green.. So you will always stay in there.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! In Kriya Yoga class in 1988, you talked about how as you taught those classes it was like planting seeds. You said that you knew that not all of the seeds would grow and that in many ways it was like throwing them on stone because most who attended the classes would not continue to practice. But you said you kept teaching Kriya yoga because sometimes one would find that a seed slid into a crack in the rock and grew into a tree. I never forgot those words and always wanted to be that seed in the crack in the rock. You are the one who helps us to awaken that potential only by your constant hope and willingness to continue sowing your seeds of love and grace on our often rock hard hearts. Thank you for caring enough about us to share the most profound teachings in the world! Sri Guru Datta!

    Unless the seed stops being a seed, by losing its form and features, the tree will not emerge. For the tree within us, as God, to emerge in His mighty, all-pervasive, all knowing, all powerful formlessness, the seed that hides God within us, our personal identity, the individual ego, has to let itself go. It has to allow itself to get split, shattered, destroyed, and merged back into the source of where it came from. That is the only way that it can give way for the God-Tree that is hidden inside us to express itself in all its magnificence. The pillar had to get shattered for Lord Narasimha to emerge. The egg has to break for the beautiful bird to come into being. The cocoon has to break to let the butterfly out. Satyanarayana and Sri Harsha had to erase themselves totally out of existence, so the world could be blessed by the presence of Swamiji and Bala Swamiji. Please give us all the courage and the willingness Sadguru Swamiji, to allow us to happily and eagerly let go of our small identities so that we can truly experience the vastness of your infinite and eternal glory. Jaya Guru Datta.

    స్తంభం బ్రద్దలయింది, లోన దాగి ఉన్న శ్రే నరసింహస్వామి విజృంభించారు. గింజ మట్టికలిసింది. మహావృక్షం మొలిచి, ఆకాశాన్నంటింది. గ్రుడ్డు పగిలింది. చిలుక పుట్టింది, శుకమహర్షి రూపంలో మోక్షప్రదమైన భాగవతాన్నిలోకానికిచ్చింది. సత్యనారాయణ, శ్రీ హర్ష ఇక లేరు. వారిద్దరూ ఇష్టంగా తమ వ్యక్తిత్వాలను త్యజించటంతో శ్రీ స్వామీజీ, శ్రీ బాల స్వామీజీల దివ్యఅవతారాలతో ప్రపంచం ధన్యమయింది. మనందరిలో దాగి ఉన్న దైవత్వం అదే విధంగా వెలికి విచ్చుకోవాలంటే, లోని అహంకారమనే, మన అల్పవ్యక్తిత్వాలపై మనం పెంచుకున్న మోహం తొలగాలి. అహంకారమనే విత్తనం బ్రద్దలై, అదృశ్యమైతేనే, హృదయాలలో దాగి ఉన్న పరబ్రహ్మకు విడుదల కలిగి అనంత అఖండ ఆనందానుభూతి కలుగుతుంది. మన ప్రతి ఒక్కరి హృదయమనే విత్తనం విచ్చుకుని, లోన దాగిన పరమాత్మను ఆనందంగా విశ్వవ్యాప్తంచేసే అనుగ్రహం వర్షించమని సద్గురుపాదాలకు భక్తితో మ్రొక్కి వేడుకొంటున్నాను.

    ‘నేను’ అనేది విత్తనం. దాన్ని భద్రపరచి ఉంచుతున్నంతకాలం, వృక్షానికి పెరిగే అవకాశమే లేదు. ‘నేను’ పై అభిమానాన్ని విడచి, దాన్ని మట్టిపాలు చేసి, దాని రూపురేఖలు తొలగేలా ఇష్టపడితేనే, దైవమనే లోని వృక్షం ఎదిగి, ఆకాశాన్నంటగలదు, ఫలపుష్పాదులను విశ్వంలో వెదజల్లగలదు. ఆనందం పంచగలదు. విత్తనం ఎంత గుండ్రంగా, నున్నగా, రంగులతో నిండి ఉన్నా, దాని విలువ మహావృక్షంతో ఎన్నటికీ సరితూగదు. మా అందరి ‘నేను’ లను మట్టిలో కలిపి, మాలోని వృక్షాలను ఆకాశానికి ఎదగనీయండి, స్వామీజీ.

    What a nice lesson Appaji has given today through this MMS 308. Here now according to me, Appaji is reminding us through Mother’s creation in nature that the God is with in our heart only. But how to feel that the God is with in our heart for which He has shown through the photography. That is we can see our Appaji in the form of a farmer in the filed and cultivating. Similarly we should also cultivate through the spiritual path and feel that the God is with in our heart only. Once we practice this when we go to any worshiping place we feel the existence of God there. But again here to develop spiritual path , we need the help of our Sadguru also Whose words and teachings should follow properly. If we go through GuruGeetha , we can realize that lord Siva has come to this earth in the form of Guru. This through the photography , we can see our Appaji is with in our heart. Here again I recollect Appaji’s words that we should learn to get registered our name in His heart also. But this can be possible only by following His words and teachings and also obey His command with out a second thought. The Bhajan is also apt for this MSG, since we see our Appaji in the form of Lord Ganapathy only. Thank You Appaji to teach us , how to to keep You in our heart always through the Mother’s creation in nature. JGD.

  6. JGD & SGD. I am very much pleased to learn HH Sri Appaji’s home is Heart of a devotee. Pranamamu Sri Appaji.

    JGD Appaji
    Why is Appaji hiding in our heart.. He is always there..but we feel He is not because of our ignorance. Lets break these shackles and see Him clearly. Let us begin the cleansing process of destroying ignorance and cleaning our hearts by listening to His music and the layers of ignorance are cleared, He will automatically reveal Himself.

  7. JAYA GURU DATTA! Shatha koti Shastanga Pranams to Parama Pujya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachidananda Swamiji. Thank u for giving Excellent MMS Appaji. SRI GURU DATTA!
