  1. {Thirst: a state of not having enough to drink; strong desire to have or do something}
    {Slavery: a relationship where one person has absolute power over another & controls his life, liberty & fortune; condition of being subject to some influence or habit}
    When one is thirsty for water he must have it. The body gets dehydrated, feels incomplete. A thirsty man will give away anything.. even his self-respect.. to get some water to drink.
    When one is thirsty for physical pleasures, his sense of self feels incomplete. So strong is the habit, that life is impossible without those physical pleasures. Such a man will exchange anything.. even his sense of liberty.. to get those desires fulfilled. And since desires are never satiated by feeding them, the slavery never ends.
    Pranams Sathguru!
    We will never be slaves of our desires. We will serve your mission like how Hanuman served Ram. In doing so, we will find our fulfilment.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Slaves are unfree and unhappy, we like to be happy and free. We pray to our LORD DATTA please help us, that we become strong and disciplined to lose all our attachments.
    Sri Guru Datta and much love to YOU <3

    Jaya Guru Datta! These MMS have reached every level of our lives Swamiji…thank you for that! Sri Guru Datta!

    • Archana Penukonda on May 7, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Jaya Guru Datta! Lord Hanuman will free us from desires and show us the path to renunciation. Om Namo Hanumate Namah! Divine song from Nama Sankirtana album stirs the soul. We all want freedom and I am perhaps only beginning to understand what freedom really is. Freedom is not living away from parents or having the ability to spend as you like or living in a free country, or wearing the clothes you like. These are, in fact, desires that tie you down. Freedom is freedom from desires, freedom from sorrow and despair. Thirst for physical pleasures is a sneaky habit. We could probably go through life working on our spiritual sadhana on one hand without realizing that we are slave to physical pleasures. So, this message is alerting me to be cognizant of such tendencies. Lust is the greatest vice and thirst for physical pleasures is the greatest slavery. May Lord Hanuman protect us all from such slavery! Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    jgd Swami ji thank You for Your warning, which will save us from this slavery. Really we must control our desires for these worldly pleasures because they are so temporary and never ending A slave can never get happiness not even in dream ‘Paraadheena sapanehun sukha naahin’ onhn sgd

    • TR.Sethuraman, Cochin on May 7, 2013 at 11:35 am

    A good lesson, Appaji has given today through this MMS 342 which is very much needed for everybody, especially in this Kaliyuga. This is because people are more slavery in this Kaliyuga for unwanted desires and worldly pleasures. To attain this they will go to any extend of level and ultimately misleaded in the life. Therefore to get rid of these , we have to follow a spiritual path under the guide lines of a Sadguru only and that to we should follow from our early part of our life itself and not in the latter part. Therefore Appaji is really giving a warning to everybody to those who follow Him. According to me if we follow Appaji’s these everyday’ MMS itself will definitely lead in the right path and will not become slavery to the unwanted desires and pleasures. The photography is very apt for this MSG, since all the common unwanted desires are seen, which we should get rid of that . The Bhajan is also apt for this MSG since Lord Brahma , Who is the creator and our Sadguru is our protector in this Kaliyuga . JGD.

  4. Om namo hanumathe namaha
    let us become slave to our guru

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    there is no physical pleasure giving us true satisfaction. There will be never enough money, enough happiness or enough entertainment. We truly understand that worldy pleasures can never compete with spiritual growth or experience. With Your grace we will be able to let go the hunting for excitement.
    May Datta and Hanuman protect us and help us to live a dharmic life.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah
    Sri Swamiji gives us so much strength so that we can achieve independence from physical pleasures. He shows us the way and accompanies us step for step to become more and more free. 🙂
    Thanks for this wonderful MMS.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Aim Hrim Srim Hrim Namah

    Jaya Guru Datta! Dear Appaji, due to your blessings after a tour to Himalayas and Mother Ganga, I stopped watching TV years ago. But now I’m a bit concerned to get lost in watching too much football via internet livestream (yet I love it and am afraid to stop it). And, with ou rbeautiful new house, I’m worried to get attached to it. Reading in Srimad Bhagavatam lately, I learned once again it is a great threat to spiritual growth to become attached also to one’s house… Am I supposed to learn to be grateful for this wonderful house & garden and at the same time to detach myself? Please continue your guidance and bless me with intensifying my yoga practice. Sri Guru Datta!

    • Maurice Clarke on May 7, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    JGD. May we sacrifice sensual attachment as Swamiji would prescribe it. JGD.

  5. Jaya Guru Datta. Please bless me to be a slave only to Sri Swamiji. Sri Guru Datta.

    This precious life is His gift. On top of that we have the divine association with Him. How can we waste such a rare blessing..How many people have this opportunity to be with Him.
    And He has provided us so many mediums, technology to improve and remind us daily of His love… Let us make our lives worthy of His gift..let us practice adjustment, discipline and self control.

    Jai Guru Datta. Thank you for cautioning us to be careful of these worldly bondages. They are not easy to let go but we have to slowly and steadly get out of their grip and find the bliss in serving your mission. Pranam Sadguru.

    ఇంద్రియసుఖాల కొరకు దాహమే అతి హీనమైన బానిసత్వం. ఓం నమో హనుమతే నమః – ఓం ఐం హ్రీం శ్రీం హ్రీం నమః
    నాకు తెలిసిన కొందరు, ప్రయాణం అంటే శ్రమ అని, వేరే చోట్ల చలి, ఎండ, వర్షాలు ఎక్కువగా ఉంటాయని, తమ ఊరు దాటి కదలరు. కొందరికి వారికి నచ్చినవిధంగా ఉదయం కాఫీ దొరకకపోతే ఇక రోజు గడవదు. కొందరు తమకు అలవాటైన పరుపు ఉండదని, చుట్టాల ఇళ్ళకు కూడా వెళ్ళి ఉండరు. ఇంటి భోజనం ఉండదని, మంచి కాలేజీలో సీటు వచ్చినా పై ఊరు వెళ్ళరు కొందరు. ఉప్పు తక్కువైందని అన్న తక్షణం వేదవిద్యార్థికి ఇక వేదం అబ్బదని అంటారు అప్పాజీ. మన దృష్టి మన కర్తవ్యం మీద ఉండాలి కానీ, క్షణికమైన శారీరక సుఖాల మీద కాదు, అని ఎప్పుడూ అప్పాజీ గుర్తు చేస్తూ ఉంటారు. శరీర వాంఛలకోసం లెక్కలేనన్ని కుటుంబాలు చిన్నాభిన్నమైపోతూ ఉంటాయి, ఆ ఇళ్ళలోని పిల్లల దురదృష్టం కొద్దీ. జయ గురు దత్త

    • Venkat on May 8, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – this is a wonderful double bonanza. When we see this, we get to see the bird zodiac again. I recall the bhajan – దత్త పాదమే నాకు శరణం – వేరేదీ లేదు తరణం
    … …
    … …
    సుఖములు జుర్రే వేళల్లో బెదిరించేటి వ్రేలల్లే
    … so, the devotees need not be worried, but have to be cautious. Thanks a lot Appaji…

    • sumanasa on May 9, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    we are attached in everything and because we live in a Body there is no other way,we can only pray to be more attached to Swamiji but some desires I don,t want to give up for example I like to swim very much I dont want to give up

    • svetha on May 12, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    My beloved SADGURU
    Thank YOU for giving us all the possibilities to handle this thirst for physical pleasures:
    YOUR MMS, YOUR Music, YOUR Kriyayoga, YOUR Vedanta, YOUR Puja, all YOUR Teachings on the dharmic way.
    Humbly I bow down to YOUR Lotosfeet.

    • Joseph on May 25, 2013 at 5:23 am

    Wanting for physical pleasures never ends…. Only detachment can help us to be free from these physical pleasures and to attain this association with noble people. May lord bless us all with detachment to free us from slavery to physical pleasures.
