  1. When we drive in India, we keep to the left. When we drive in the US, we keep to the right. When we drive through life, we keep to the truth.
    What is the truth ?
    Our dearest Lord Ganesha,
    You are the Lord (Natha) of this Earth (Bhuloka). Your stotras contain the essence of the Vedas. Your stories contain the essence of the puranas. Your achievements reflect the right code of conduct. You are the eternal Truth!
    When you won the mango – Fruit of Knowledge – from your parents, by just walking around them thrice, you illustrated how you apply your vast knowledge in overcoming daily challenges.
    In your compassion, you have descended in our times, as our Sathguru Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji, who exemplifies the virtue of keeping to the truth every moment.
    We thank you a zillion times for this blessing!
    In serving our Guru’s cause, we will keep our minds pure. For, following Him is to follow the truth.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! Our minds become filled with so many distorted thoughts. Being trapped in the maya of this world we think only of its illusions. But Swamiji is giving us a way to see through those veils that keep us from the truth of our real nature and of the everlasting bliss within. We have forgotten that it is our true nature to be happy. We have forgotten that nothing we can experience with our five senses is real. Let us not miss using the tools,He has give us to return to our natural wonderful state! Sri Guru Datta!

    One day in my life I began to understand, that truth is always the best choice. Since then I try to stay always in the truth. Then when it is very difficult, then it is also very good feelings, when I am able to stay with me. Then I feel very good and clear.

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji – Truth – Sat, if practised in the right manner – will give rise to the ananda that we can witness in Sri Swamiji’s divine smile. That purity is vividly visible in the entire video and the MMS Appaji. Thanks a lot for a reassuring message Appaji

    • svetha on February 12, 2013 at 10:35 am

    Jai Guru Datta! Telling the truth makes life very easy – we simple say what is. No need to think about it, the truth remains always the truth. So our mind will be light, no weight and no obscurity. And our mood will be light.And we will be nearer to our Sadgurudeva. Humble pranams to His Holy Feet

    Jaya Guru Datta !
    Thank you for this important message, dear Appaji! Of course I was aware that we must be truthful if we want to be good people, but not that truth purifies the mind. May I purify my mind with constant truth and also with many of the other means You give us so compassionately. I am so thankful, and I love you so much, Sadguru Deva! With humble Pranams to Your Lotus Feet. Sri Guru Datta!

    Whenever we have a dilemma in life choosing the truthful path gives us lot of mental peace. It may seem that in the short term, falsehood gives us more benefits, but in the long run, truth always prevails. Thanks for this wonderful message Appaji. And the wonderful malayalam translation of Mammelu Mathandri gananaatha….

    • Archana Penukonda on February 12, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Indeed, Swamiji is Truth. With everything Swamiji has done for us including discourses, bhajans, MMS, darshans, pujas books, videos etc, we have the knowledge we need at our fingertips. The gap is between knowledge and implementation. The web of maya is strong. But, I can’t keep blaming it on maya. I have to start practicing the instructions You’ve given us. Every big project starts with one small step. Truth liberates and truth purifies the mind. When negative thoughts or desires enter the mind, we revel in the material gratification it gives us. But, if we uproot these tendencies right in the mind, if we offer them to Swamiji every time they surface, we may slowly start cleaning our mind. Truth is that there is only the One everywhere. We can call him Shiva or Datta or any other name. By reminding ourselves to see the One in everything, by reminding ourselves that form equals impermanence, we may be able to start experiencing the truth that we know as Sri Swamiji!

    In this Kaliyuga , Appaji is again reminding us that Truth is only permanent (Eternal) through today’s MMS. Lord Ganapathy is an example for the same. This is because , He is lord of the earth. His stotras contain the essence of Vedas . He is also an exemplary as how to make use of our knowledge properly to over come the problems in our life from the story of the mango given by Mother Goddess Parvathy to Him. More over He always stand for Dharma. Naturally He is always for Truth only since Dharma is born from truth—MMS 152. Therefore when we follow these both principles, naturally our mind will be also purified which will help us to over come our ego, pride, jealous and selfishness to a great extend in our life. But in this Kaliyuga it is not so easy to follow like this, unless we develop our spiritual path through our Sadguru , Who is Lord Ganapathy Himself in this Kaliyuga . Hence , Appaji we got your concept and follow your words and teachings to maintain always the Truth and thereby we can keep our mind clean. The photography is very apt for this MSG since Appaji is seen with a smiling face and His expression shows that He is so kind hearted and always prepared to bless and help us to follow and guide us in the spiritual path since He is also a kshipra Ganapathy for us. The Bhajan from Namarchana Malayalam CD is also apt for this MSG. JGD.

    Om Varada Ganapthaye namah. Just like our Sadgurudeva who is blessing everybody around the world, Our Ganapthi deva is seen as varada Ganapathi. Humble Pranams to the Lord of True eternal Bliss. Om Ksipra Ganapathaye namaha.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on February 13, 2013 at 10:25 am

    JGD Appaji
    Everything else in this world is just an illusion and not permanent…nothing in this world accompanies us after death.. , how can the world or anything in it purify us or give permanent happiness..
    Appaji is the truth. He is, has been and will be with us throughout our janmas…Let us stick to His Divine Feet permanently by following Him..

    • Joseph on February 13, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Wonderful message in Malayalam, mind is filled with presumption and biased thoughts masked with ego. The only truth that Omnipresent God is the energy guiding us always, only this truth helps in purifying thoughts and overcome the limitation of thoughts to “I” or “me”. May lord bless us all to purify our thoughts and mind.

    • Vanaja on February 13, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta,

    Jaya Guru Datta Puttuji_/\_!!
    Super MMS & Super Explanation Puttuji !!

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!
    Sarvam Sadgurudeva, Please purify us !!.

    Sadgurudeva, Heart to Heart, Truth, Jnana Bodha Sabha, Mysore (Oct 5, 1984):
    “One may consider oneself a great scholar by studying the scriptures.
    One may also be termed as charitable due to the charities one does. All
    this will be in vain, if one does not speak the truth, think truthfully
    and act truthfully”
    “Although we all know that truth ultimately wins, we do not really
    appreciate its significance in spiritual and material life. The sastras
    say that is not enough to study the sastras and be a scholar. It is
    not even enough if one just speaks the truth. One must think, talk and
    act in a truthful way.”!!
    We will follow You – Our Eternal Truth !!

    Datta Naav Chal padee, Sat Ki Naav Chal padee, Guru ki Naav Chal padee !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!
