  1. When the skies get dark, it needs action by Nature to disperse the clouds. Some strong wind, or difference in pressure.. reason for the clouds to drift away. Or, the cloud gets heavier until it saturates, when it pours & clears up. Whatever form that action by Nature takes, it is driven by temperature differences caused by the Sun.
    When one’s inherent happiness is clouded by sorrow, it takes some intervention to move those clouds away. Sathguru is the divine Sunlight, shining through forms that are adored by the griever. There are infinite number of forms through which that ONE Divinity OM expresses itself. Sathguru helps one cut through the clutter & connect with that divinity through prayer. In that communion, the sorrow dissolves.
    Pranams Sathguru!
    You’re Krishna, dissolving our sorrows (Duhkhahara) in your divine Nada. You’re our doctor of happiness. We only have to serve your cause towards our Paramananda. We will.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! We all face sorrow from time to time. Today our beloved Guru gives us the antidote for that poison and reminds us that like a doctor, He is there to help us heal. Sorrow has to be removed gently and tenderly and sometimes it takes time to recover, but with prayer and Guru’s love, all things are possible, even when it seems the pain will never end. Sri Guru Datta!

    When I have sorrows, I don’t trust enaugh in Swamiji. Then I must work for a deeper connection with my Guru. For this it is very helpful to pray, but also only to think intensively on Swamiji and His love, on all this what He made since now for me. Then I can let go the sorrows.

    what else any Disciple can expect more than this.we can have other explanation for this in GURU DEVA GURU GEETHA, poem number 137..

    • Archana Penukonda on February 16, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    What a touching message! The essence of Divinity is pure happiness and love. Our sorrows, caused by our mind and indriyas will vanish when we can dip in to that ocean of Divinity. Divinity descends to earth as a Guru. Our Sathguru often exhorts us to “use” Him. He says that He needs to have a sign around Him that says “use me”. Can a Guru be any more benevolent? That’s nothing but divine motherly love for Her children. Swamiji says to give Him all our sorrows and worries. In return He gives us unfettered happiness and peace of mind. Can anyone else in the world deliver anything even close to this? It’s not an equal bargain. We have everything to gain in this deal. But, Sri Swamiji still goes to great lengths to make us happy and comfortable and to teach us spiritual lessons that will help us be master swimmers in this ocean of samsara. Sincere prayer leads to communion with the divine which is that dip in the ocean of divinity. May my prayers always reach the Sathguru’s Lotus Feet!

    Jaya Guru Datta
    It is so great to know that Sri Swamiji is there also when we face a problem. In dark moments we know that there are only clouds between us and the constant and bright shining of Sri Swamiji. He supports us in our endeavour to dispel our sorrow.
    Pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sadgurudeva.

    My beloved SWAMIJI, my revered DOCTOR, YOU help us in all the difficulties we have with our sorrows. YOU give us the possibility for the best medicine, the prayers.
    Thank YOU for YOUR patience.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Swamiji is like a doctor. He knows everything. He knows what medicine to offer each of His devotees. We only have to pray and surrender with faith, love and devotion.

    • lilashah on February 16, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. My life has been so full of sorrows…. Attachments and the inevitable disappointments from my own unmet expectations. I am struggling with this now even though I should know better. Why do I keep looking outward? In prayer I look to Sri Swamiji, who is inside us all. Oh Mother, may Your divine Lotus Feet save us from this world of sorrows. I love you, I love you, I love you. Sri Guru Datta.

    • Ramarao Chengalvala on February 16, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta!!! The unexpected impediments that come in the path of reaching our goal set by our selves are the cause of sorrow .Changes are bound to occur in man’s life. Never is a person allowed to remains stagnant by nature. Prosperity and adversity will alternate and they are not in our control .Devotion and trust on Sadguru with tenacity of mind provides a person the strength to face them alike .Guru’s kindness has no limits and He knows the needs of his devotee and the time when he should confer his benefactions on Him.Swamiji,Your are our soul guide and protector ,Bless us ,so that we develop the power of discrimination between the ephemeral and eternal so that we lead a perfect house holders life,regard less of sorrows and difficulties encountered

    • sarada on February 16, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    JGD. The best of medicines also does not work if we have no faith in the doctor. But with total faith reposed in our Sathguru Sri Swamiji can any sorrow trouble us. Swamiji never let’s ud down. With a mountain of support Sri Swamiji for us we can we can rest assured that everything will be taken care of. May I always and always remain in the service of my beloved guru Sri Swamiji.JGD.

    What a nice advice , Appaji has given through today’s MMS. Here our Appaji Himself is Nada yogi and Nada Brahma. Therefore by listening to His healing music and Bhajans , we can overcome our sorrow . Puttuji, you have given a good example about the sky wherein when it gets dark by clouds, it has to be cleared off by nature only in various ways. Similarly through the spiritual path, Appaji takes away our sorrow ( disease ) . It is our duty to follow His words and teachings strictly to overcome this. Here I remember Appaji’s words saying that, when the God has given this human birth, we have to face both good and bad karmas in our life. At the sametime during our bad karmas, the impact of the same will be reduced through our Sadguru’s blessings. In this connection I had my own experience in the year 2000 and during at that period, even at one stage I lost my will power. Hence Appaji asked me to come to the Asharam and spend 21 days there, attending daily Pooja, homa and Bhajans . At one stage , Appaji Himself gave me healing treatment also and by His grace I regained my will power, fully charged and back to very normal. Therefore in this Kaliyuga , we are so fortunate to get our Sadguru and if we follow Him , definitely we can overcome our sorrow and will lead to happiness .Thephotography and the music are very apt for this MSG since Appaji is every thing for us as Krishna, Rama, Datta and Mother Goddess.

    when sorrows hamper the way?
    What better could I do than focus
    on YOUR Divine Feet The Lotos,
    surrender the heavy load,
    sing out the lump of my throat,
    direct mind and heart to the sky,
    get out of the dumps and fly…
    YOU’ll tell me what will be best,

    Thank You with all my heart, Appaji!

    Audio visuals are superb, the audio track used in this video is with a catchy tune. Absolutely true, for all sorrows prayer is the only best medicine because sorrow, grief or feeling low are emotions. To divert our concentration from these emotions praying God who is always abode of eternal bliss will help us. Who else is a best doctor than God, because only HE knows about us completely like parent is aware of his child’s problems. I liked this MMS, wonderful reminder…

    JGD Appaji
    Just the thought of Appaji makes the heart lighter when troubled… contemplating on Him constantly, listening to His music, makes us realize the fleeting nature of the world and its problems, matter how grave the situation. Thank You Appaji!
