Nandana SGS MMS 91
Permanent link to this article: https://puttugam.com/the-wise-lose-neither-courage-nor-enthusiasm-29-aug-2012/
Daddy urges his little son to swim in the pool. The boy is afraid because he has never jumped into the water before. So, daddy just pushes sunny into the water, and after a few moments of struggle, sunny starts swimming. He is now so excited that he will not come out of the pool.
The plane has just made an emergency landing. There is fire and smoke in the tail. The passengers are afraid, are shocked, and are in a state of panic. A few of them faint. The young airhostesses have no time for fear. They display courage and enthusiasm in getting passengers to wear their life jackets, open the emergency doors and slide out into the water.
Nik Wallenda crosses the Niagra Falls walking on a tight rope. While spectators gasp and watch in disbelief and fear, Nik is focused and deliberate in every step he takes on the wire. He has no time for fear. He has rehearsed this enough, and has prepared himself well for this moment. He accomplishes this feat which no one did in almost a century.
What makes people respond differently to very risky, unpredictable, potentially harmful, dangerous situations ? Why some of us face our fears with enthusiasm, overcome them and then enjoy the excitement that follows ? While some of us shiver at the very thought of crossing the road, stepping on an escalator, riding a bicycle.. or making a presentation to the Big Boss at work ?
Knowledge, faith and love are the antidote to fear. The wise know and use what they know. Fools may know but do not use their knowledge. Imagine being that airhostess, or being Nik. They trained well, to do what they never did in their lives but had to.. with complete faith in their trainer, complete faith in themselves, and they loved their jobs. Doing things that you haven’t done before means you shake yourself out of your comfort zone. Calls for courage ( Not the absence of fear but the willingness to act in spite of the fear ) and enthusiasm ( passion ) to overcome the unknown obstacles that may come your way. This why this MMS invokes Lord Ganesha. He is the Lord of Knowledge ( married to Riddhi / Buddhi or Knowledge ), and He is Vigneshwara – the Lord of Obstacles.. removes them when you respectfully pray to him. With His blessings, you act with courage and enthu in the material and in the spiritual realm.. You scale newer heights.. You become wiser.
When a school bus full of children was about to hit a speeding truck on Mysore – Bangalore Road, His Holiness bore the brunt of that recklessness.. acting with courage and enthusiasm to save those young lives. He is Lord Ganapathi himself who removed the obstacle that could have killed them. This is how His Holiness ‘walks the talk’ when He says “The wise lose neither courage nor enthusiasm even during times of danger”. We will follow you Appaji.. always chanting ‘Om Gam Ganapathaye Namaha’ and always acting with courage and with enthusiasm. We know no danger, because we know your grace. By doing so, we will be the wise ones you will be proud of.
With koti pranams at your holy feet, Jaya Guru Datta.

Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Sri Vigna Raja Parama Pujya Sri Sri Sri Swamiji !!
I wish, that I could be wise. Perhaps the first step is done. I try really to have some courage, even when situations are difficult. This courage comes out of my knowledge, that Swamiji is always with me and helping me. He even helps, when I have made a mistake. He is not a guru which let devotees alone in their life, even the actions are not so wise. I am happy and try really to act in a manner, that Swamiji is happy with me. Like this a can better feel Him in my life and that gives me more courage for my things.
Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji! Seeing Ganapathy dancing along the seashore gives me hope as Hurricane Isaac batters us today! I know you are with us…Shata Shloki Ramayana is playing in two rooms, Hanuman Chalisa in another continuously. All that happens is God’s will and I am grateful to Appaji for throwing this little baby into the water to learn to swim! Now much needed water will be brought to the drought regions in the midwest…now people here will have a chance to serve in a deeper way. It’s all your grace… I pray that all the devotees will remember the Gulf Coast in their prayers today. May all those trapped and all those in emergency services have all the courage and resources they need to face and complete this karma! Sri Guru Datta! Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!
Om gam ganapathaye namah.Jaya Guru Datta.Pranams to all.Certainly an edification to me.Its like , “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is ‘patience’,” we all ought to be unperturbed by highs and lows,regardless of its intensity.” ‘stay what you are,come what may’
jaya guru datta
Jaya guru datta
Yes appaji the wise are always blessed by god so never they lose enthusiasm and courage at the time of danger .
Appaji always guiding us to be happy

JGD! Wow, what melodious Bhajan with beautiful background images. Nama sankeertana definitely blooms the flower of Bhakti in us and makes us to grow in spiritual path to be better humans and achieve the purpose of human life. With blessings of Lord Ganesha and our beloved Sadgurudeva who is working tirelessly day and night for our benefit, let’s work hard to achieve that. JGD
Wonderful message. Sthitha pragnatva is the best way to gain wisdom.
This advice is something we all need. Puttuji, give us this strength to bear calamities and continue in our efforts to achieve desired goals.
jayagurudatta srigurudatta appagi
Jaya Guru Datta! Just minutes before opening today’s message, I was admiring some white lilies, just like these, that a friend gave to me. Seeing them at the beginning of this video was like a little wink from Appaji reminding me that He is with me, always and every where!
I think that with Wisdom comes a steadfastness of focus and a peaceful state of being. It comes from the lessons we’ve learned through our sadhana, our karma and our devotion. Wisdom is an anchor in an often rocky ocean. And although courage and enthusiasm are admirable traits, I feel that wisdom is more sattvic and is the result of our courage and enthusiasm. Therefore, in any situation, turning to the wisdom of the saints and to our own inner wisdom is the more enduring path.
My thoughts are with everyone in the path of the hurricane this morning. May your inner wisdom comfort and guide you. Om Namo Hanumate Namaha!
JGD Puttuji!! This message is a timely reminder for me. I am feeling very anxious about certain legal formalities that have to be completed soon. Nothing seems to be coming my way. Was feeling restless. This MMS came as a personalized message for me. Reminds me that everything is god’s will and that we should listen to the words of saints. Listening to your MMS and feeling confident that things will be fine soon. Indeed, there is light at th eend of every tunnel 🙂 There is your grace that is upon us at all times. Also, reminds me that Faith is the only antidote. It can move mountains.
Infact, this MMS is good mix of so many earlier MMSs. Love you Appaji!! JGD 🙂
This is a well timed piece of advice, Appaji. Thank You! Jai Hanuman!
Jaya Guru Hanuman, No words are enough to express gratitude to Puttugamji for showing us the wisdom hidden in the MMS’es. It simply blows me away.
Let us all have faith in ourselves, faith in Guru and with courage and enthusiasm march forward in Life to fulfill our purpose.
Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Puttugamji again and again for showing us the hidden treasures.
Om namo hanumate namaha
My most beloved Swamiji, this message could have not arrived in a more appropriate time. In this moment I feel your presence in my heart so much!!! Thank you. I love you.
Jaya Guru Datta, may I always be aware that everything goes according to His plan. This will give me the courage to stay positive even in difficult times.
Om gam Ganapthy namaha
jaya guru datta
With these MMS messages everyday, You are making us knowledgeable and from there wiser, Appaji. We need not fear and we need not lose hope, for we know that You are always there supporting us and protecting us, should we falter. Bhgavadgita (and many scriptures) firmly states that we should leave “fear” to make spiritual progress. With Appaji as the captain of our journey, let there be no fear in His children, as we march forward in the path shown by Him. Sri Guru Datta.
Not to loose courage and enthusisam in dangerous times is moore dificult than in peacefull times. I pray to Appaji always for help to do the good action. Om namo hanumate namaha.
Jaya Guru Datta, This MMS message is particularly inspiring. Firstly, it starts off showing the image of a flower and slowly, as each flower opens, beautiful fragrance with the word ‘Gam’ is released. The next scene resembles a forest during times of winter, cold and harsh climate conditions. It seems as these nature backgrounds and scenery enforces the message that Sri Swamiji has given us today because like nature, everyone has to go through some period of repose before blossoming into something beautiful. Sri Ganapati pervades the entire universe and in this message, we are reminded that by offering prayers and worship, all of our obstacles will be destroyed. Nothing can be done successfully without the will of Maha Ganapati, which is why before every pooja, ramayana or katha, we do Ganapati pooja, or say ‘Sri Maha Ganapataye Namaha, (Sri Saraswatyai, Sri Padavallabha, Narasimha Saraswati, Sri Guru Dattatreyaya Namaha’) of which Ganapati is invoked first to conquer all obstacles. Swamiji has recently enforced that everything is the will of God. The wise shall remember this and continue to be steadfast in their prayer and worship because by knowing Sri Swamiji is with us, we will never lose courage and by chanting his beautiful mantras and songs, we will never lose enthusiasm. Thank you Appaji, for this beautiful message and for continuing to strive for the welfare of your devotees. Jai Veera Hanuman.
Sri Ganeshaya Namaha, prostrations to the lotus feet of appaji. Nice MMS appaji. Jaya Guru Datta
JGD. “not the absence of fear but the willingness to act in spite of fear” a very potent statement Sri Puttuji. One can only act thus if a powerful Sadguru like Appaji is residing in the heart.
Jgd.A very Good MMS.This to encourage today’s youth.Circumstance are the instruments of the wise, Every defeat is a ladder step to sucess.Appaji is giving a call to all do not take a rash decision just give it another day dame luck will smile at you.
jgd Puttu Ganapaty Ji when You ride my rat like mind ( mushika buddhi ) how will it ever lose courage or enthusiasm, let me always involve myself in work as worship, singing glory and praise of Guru Ganapaty, my faith and respect for You will keep me out of danger onhn sgd
Jaya Guru Datta,
Wow….. beautiful and inspiring MMS video message with pristine graphics. Fear is the biggest hurdle for many of us.Reading puttuji explanation and watching MMS video makes my pores raise. I pray to pujya gurudeva to give me strength to be fearless in all situations.
Sri Guru Datta
Thank you Sadgurdeva, I really needed to hear this. In hard times sometimes we feel like giving up when we should be trying our hardest. Instead of despondency we must go forward with courage and enthusiasm. After all we have you behind us. Why should we fear?
JGD. Thanks for the inspiring MMS Appaji. It speaks the essence of thousand Personality Development Books and Puttuji’s Explanation really helped me open the doors of my heart and made me gain courage and enthu in what ever I do. As true Belief in Appaji Surely bestows us with sufficient Wisdom & Courage while passing through hard and rough terrains of life and when faced with unprecedented circumstances, Kindly BLESS us with unwavering Bhakti and Belief in “U”.
Thagu telivini Ragilimpave Karuninchave Gurprabhoo..
Jai Guru Datta.. Such an important message that we can relate to at work, home or relationships.
Thank You Appaji. We shall remember to be courageous and enthusiastic even during times of danger and hardship. PuttuJi, wonderful explanation, thanks so much. The background music is soothing and energetic.
Sri Guru Datta
JGD! May we all be blessed to have faith in the Lord and Sadguru, then there is nothing to fear. Yet we should not lose reason and do silly things, trying to test the divine. SGD!
Jgd. Appaji thank you for this beautiful message. It is easy to be enthusiatic when things are going well. The true test is being enthusiastic during difficult times. These messages keep me strong, Thank You Appaji.
Jaya Guru Datta
Om Gam Ganapathaye Namah
Om Namo Hanumathey Namah
Dear Appaji please bless us to be wise, strong and courageous. It is a very apt and beautiful MMS,we will follow your sayings, humble pranamams to Lotus feet of our sathguru.
Dear Puttuji, This is a much needed reminder to all of us. It is effective since it comes from some one who experienced all the dangers and frustrations personally for the sake of His followers. What is more, He also knows what is coming and does not panic but take on dangers voluntarily….all just to save even one follower….let alone a bus load of kids. And then llke any normal human being, exercise Himself to normal health. I, like a normal human being, do not wish for dangers to come my way. But I know that if I am encountered with a dangerous situation, just by my mere thinking of Him, He will be by my side to support me through the ordeal ( Actually, if I am so shocked that I do not think of my sadguru momentarily….He will still be there). His love is such. Jaya Guru Datta
Thanks appaji!! Jai Ganesha!!!
When one surrenders completely to the Sadguru, what place is there for fear of danger? Sri Swamiji has blessed us with Kavacha, Aditya Hridayam and so many other forms of protection. So many others have been saved by His miraculous intervention all over the world. We will be doing Sadguru a disservice if we ever lose courage or enthusiasm while in His care.
Jgd Sri Swamiji, we are very lucky to be with Sri Swamiji, guiding and blessing in every breath, which we cannot express in words but only to enjoy.
Jai Guru Datta, you are the provider of the wisdom and courage. Without your protection and guidance we will be lost. We pray that please bless us with the wisdom and courage to know from right to wrong, good to bad and to always follow your teachings.
Om Namo Hanumate Namah
Jai Guru Datta Pujya Appaji !!
You are our Lord Ganesh !! You are our Datta !! You are our All in one God!!
You are Everything !!Courage is only natural to us by your Grace. Where is the room for fear?
I surrender at your Lotus feet and humbly request you to remain in our hearts forever. Why fear, when you are here !! We will follow your advice and act with courage, conviction, faith,and steadfast devotion.We will be the wise ones Appaji, due to your Grace !!
We thank Dear Puttuji for translating the divine SGS MMS in such a lucid and picturesque manner.
Om Gam Ganapathaye Namaha !! Om Chinthamani Ganapathaye Namaha !!
Sri Guru Datta Hanuman Ki Jai !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!
Appaji The Lord of Ganapti who saved the school children by getting himself hit with courage, also teaches us like Sri Mata how His injuries got healed in His Music of Mystic. He makes us to be wise to face with courage and help others and creates enthusiasm on us by teaching us what do to do in case of you are hurt for the good cause. Om Namo Hanumate Namaha Jaya Guru Datta
The clip of moving through the mountain, made us feel as if, we are having darshana of Maha Ganapati. The point where the video concludes, it appears as if there is a face engraven on the mountain in the left!
The message for the day is very motivating!
The colour combination in the video, the orange on black, explains to us that the wise bloom with courage & enthusiasm in any circumstance & remain radiant!
Why do the wise lose neither courage or enthusiasm even during danger?
It is because, Ganapati bestows wisdom, making one wise & drives away all obstacles, therefore helping the disciple retain His courage & enthusiasm. Such is the power of the syllable, ‘Gam’.
Our sadguru, who is also referred to as Arka Swami by some, blesses & guides us.
If the dry trees in the clip signify danger, the water & the erect posture of trees shows the presence of courage & enthusiasm.
Our prayers that we rightly follow all His instructions.
Just like, while moving through the mountains, all mountains appear the same, the wisdom bestowed will help us see the world as one & the same!
The animation of Ganapathy travelling on the mouse was nice! He is moving towards us, we await His Darshana. Though, we, His children may be slow & ignorant, He drives us towards our destination, just like Krishna drove Arjuna, in Mahabharata, (maybe penned by Ganesha).
Om Maha Ganapathaye Namah.
Your explanation motivates us thoroughly to be courageous. Your comment made me sit erect on my chair! Feel like watching the video & reading the comment again & again!
We pray to Sadguru & bow down to Him.
With His blessings, we will act with courage & enthusiasm in the material & the spiritual realm & scale newer heights & be wiser.
With a lot of love & courage we proclaim, “Jai Guru Datta, Om Gam Ganapathaye Namah.”
On the mouse You climb & come to protect us.
You are Saccidananda, we offer Pranams.
The lyrics when Ganapati travels on the Mouse are very apt.
Om Gam Ganapataye Namah.
ji guru deva datta “thwamausmin karya niryoge pramanum harisathama hanumun yethnamathsaya duhkkakshaya karobhava ” om namo hanumathe namh om namo hanumathe namah om namo hanumathe namahom namo hanumathe namah om namo hanumathe namah om namo hanumathe namah om namo hanumathe namah
JGD. Courage and enthusiasm enriches qualities of the wise. This is exposed by our APPAJI when He had to face the situation at the Angel’s falls,educating us this sookti,to be adopted by us.SGD
JGD Appaji – As said in the above MMS we do not lose courage nor enthusiasm why because we have our Guru Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji, Dattatreya swarupa on our back at all times – SGD

When I opened the MMS, i had to smile. It was Appaji’s way of reassuring me upon what I had courageously done today in the absolute faith I have in my Satguru. My travel agent called to check if I was confirming my flight to london for the concert. I said that I will call her back in a few minutes. During that time I was evaluating the appropriateness confirming, whilst I had a few loose ends to tie up. I tossed and decided that it was GO and booked it. I also booked my concert ticket. Now I know, I had done the right thing and all the loose ends will be tied up in time for departure. Thank you Appaji. I know, I have been courageous rather than foolish !
JAYA GURU DATTA! Please, beloved Appaji, help me to have always enough faith in You, that I can have courage and enthusiasm in dangerous and difficult times! I prostrate to Your holy lotuspadas. S.G.D.!

JGDH Puttuji! Another important message to uplift oneself!!! Today’s message is all about leadership, which is lifting one to higher sights, setting a standard and building an personality beyond the normal boundaries!!!! My take away be alert and always have a contingency plan on your sleeve! Courage, spunk, honesty, drive are the catchwords to beat any situation! Thank you Appaji, love your Management principles and YOU are a TRUE Leader!!! JGDH!!!
Jaya Guru Datta,
As long as SADGURU is filled in our mind, body and soul…we are full of courage and enthusiasm. They can’t leave us.
Koti pranamams to your lotus feet Gurudeva..
Om Sri Sadgurubhyo Namaha!
జయ గురు దత్త,
ఈ రోజు MMS లో విడియో ప్రజంటేషన్, మ్యూజిక్, చాల బాగున్నాయి. పువ్వులు వికసించుట, వాటి పరిమళం ‘గం’ మంత్రంగా వెదజల్లుట, గణపతి మూషిక వాహనముపై ఆనంద మూర్తిగా దర్శనమీయుట అద్భుతంగా వున్నాయి.
సద్గురు రక్షణలో ఉన్న మనకు ఆపదలు, ప్రమాదముల గురించి భయము పనిలేదు. గురుదేవ మీ ఆస్సిస్సులే కష్టసమయములో కవచముగా ఉండి మాకు ధైర్యాన్ని, ఉత్సాహాన్ని ఇస్తాయి.
గణపతిదేవా మీ పాదపద్మములకు శత కోటి వందనములు.
ఓం గం గణపతయే నమః.
ఓం సద్గురుభ్యో నమః
Thank you Appaji, for giving a wonderful sookthi and showing the Lord Ganapathi whom we pray in times of difficulty. I feel that when I pray to God Ganapathi with faith and positive thinking everything looks to be coming into the right track. That gives me the courage and strength to face the difficult situations.
Appaji has given all the reinforcements needed to face life. If only we are disciplined and wise.
‘Courage’ is result of ability to manage fear. It is an antidote for fear when one is aware of the knowledge about fear and the way to over come it. This is possible only with grace of Guru or God. May Sri Swamiji bless us all to be wise even during times of danger.
Jaya Guru Datta Appaji !!!! Thanks for the wonderful message !!! OM NAMO HANUMATE NAMAH
Sree Guru Datta !!!
Jai Guru Datta Appaji…thank You for always being there with perfect timing, and perfect advice. Sri Guru Datta
JGD. In all situations, may we be brave and positive to Swamiji’s liking. JGD.
Jaya Guru Datta!
Thank You, dear Sri Ganapati, for protecting me so well. You support me so much to cross the borders of old behaviors. To set limits towards others. To explore new realms even if they invoke the feeling of fear.
Through You presence, dear Sri Sri Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji, i feel so secure. This security allows me to develop into a better being. You show me the way.
Koti pranams to Your Divine Lotus Feet.
Sri Guru Datta
Om Namo Hanumate Namah
Om Maha Ganapataye Namah
Jai Guru Datta.
Appaji has been blessing us to face dangers. We are facing them and do not even realise how serious they are, with His grace we have to hold on to Him so that we can have the courage and enthusiasm. Jai Guru Datta
OM GAM GANAPATAYE NAMAH
Wir können uns so glücklich schätzen! Wir haben unseren GANAPATI-GURU, der uns hilft, beschützt, unterstützt! Wir sind also weise, wenn wir dies keinen Moment vergessen!
OM MAHA GANAPATAYE NAMAH
Why be scared of anything when we are under the divine umbrella of Lord Ganapati our Sadguru. We just need to follow His teachings and develop our inner strength and faith. Knowing He is with us, there is no room for fear.
