  1. Eagles find their fulfilment up in the air, without letting the wind get into their wings. They glide over it.
    Swans find their fulfilment in the water, without letting the water stick to their feathers. They glide over it.
    Whatever the medium in which one seeks his fulfilment, he must lovingly rise above it, without getting entangled with it.
    So it is for seekers of liberation.
    Extroverts travel outward.. should come from a position of selfless love for the world around. They should set free what they love, not possess. Seeing their loved ones take wings and fly, takes them towards liberation.. Nothing more to ask for.
    Introverts travel inward.. should in detachment witness that thought parade.. without being carried away by the beauty or ugliness of their inside. Candid awareness of the inner self serves to feel one with the universal spirit.. I am existence.
    Thanks a ton for this reflection, Sathguru! Feels liberating!
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

    Jgd.Very nice MMS.The end of Pure Love is detachment.The love has no wishes attached to it.Utterdetachment is also expressed in the form of Love.We hear people saying God:s love is equal to aLL LIVING.

    Jaya Guru Datta – whether outward or inward – familial or otherwise – selfless love or service – by design or by desire – by experience or other’s expertise – Appaji is teaching us all to be focused on the realization part which is the primary reason for all the beings to be here. thank You Appaji for the persistent instructions and perseverance Your Holiness shows on our upliftment. This tells us, yet again, the importance of the teachings and MMS itself. Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta!!! Through this message Pujya Appaji is reminding us the objective of our life…attaining LIBERATION!!! We can take either of the paths, to reach the supreme purpose of life. We tend to travel outward with selfishness or inward with attachment, which are hindering our spritual growth. Only our Sadguru can make us realize / explain us the essence of life in these few words. With the grace of Appaji, hope all of us will have courage and patience to obtain Liberation. Sri Guru Datta!!!

    This title sounds good. To think free from your condioned mind is like a bird flying free in nature. I start to get this feeling when I go on holiday, but much more when I think on Swami Ji. Swami Ji will come in August to Switserland. In His Surrounding you get the feeling of liberation and cannot wait quiet to see Him.

    Sri Swamiji shows us wonderfully to travel in this world with pure love. His love grows in the hearts of all of us. It makes possible that we can detach from worldly objects and start our journey to the center of our heart.
    Pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji.

  2. I love this statement! Wow! I was just reading about the Bhagavagita where in Krishna even says there are MNAY ways to reach the
    Divine! (within and without) (Realization!) Krishna emphatically states that some offer their breaths as penance! (in meditation) and that others do this or that….(my colloquial statement and wording!) Some even sweep instead of performing rituals…! wow ! Many avenues to reach the Divine!
    this statemnt by OUR Holiness Sri Swamiji gives each of us HOPE in a Magnanimous way. Pranams to YOU Swamiji ! Pranams!
    Jai Guru Datta Swamiji for making the pathway to You and the Divine

    • lilashah on February 26, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta. I love you Sri Swamiji. Your love is the only pure love I know. Every other love has some kind of expectations. Please free me from such expectations so that I can be closer to You. Sri Guru Datta

    Very meaningful message Appaji. One need not be always introverted and detached to attain salvation. Jaya Guru Datta.

    According to me in today’s MMS, Appaji has gone further deep in to the concept of Liberation. It is not so easy to attain liberation as we think. Not only that so many people talk about liberation out of ignorance wherein , there is no reality. Here really if you think how a teacher is guiding a student to build up his carrier , similarly we need basically a Sadguru to guide us in the spiritual path also. Unless we develop the spiritual path , we cannot understand the concept of liberation and cannot attain the same. One thing is very sure with out a Master in this field , if anybody speak about liberation, then it is like you are walking in the dark. There fore we are so fortunate to get our Sadguru in this Kaliyuga Whom we have to follow His words and teachings can attain to liberation at one stage. The photography is very apt for this MSG since the Eagleis is fulfilling it’s requirements in the air with out affecting to their wings and using the wind as their media. Similarly in the case of Swan, they fulfill in the water with out affecting the water to stick in their feathers. Here they use the water as their media. Therefore we have to use the spiritual path as our media to attain liberation. Now here according to me if you consider spiritual path as our media and through that if you travel outward or through inward , we can attain liberation. Further here I recollect MMS 43 which says for journey towards liberation one must follow strict procedures in spiritual path through a Master. Similarly as per MMS 148, the mind is also another cause for bondage or liberation. Therefore we have to control our mind also for which we have to travel through spiritual path. The Bhajan on Lord Datta is also apt for this MSG since He is the Master for all and in this Kaliyuga our Swamiji has come inthe form of Datta. Therefore Appaji we got your concept and follow you in all respects to attain liberation finally . JGD.

    Excellent message and audiovisuals. Pure love does miracles and detachment is not just with surrounding objects or persons but with self too. Both these components teaches us to be progressively selfless. May lord bless us to have love towards all living beings and detachment with self.

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on February 27, 2013 at 9:34 am

    JGD Appaji
    Pure love itself seems like a form of detachment. Pure love among humans I have never seen. Only Pure Love is with You. Humans we try to change others according to our mold. We have to learn to accept everyone as they are, as forms of the divine. And let everyone be free as they want. This practice of Pure Love with everyone around us is very hard. Hopefully with Appaji’s Blessings one day at a time, we will finally be there!

    • madhu talwar on February 28, 2013 at 11:17 am

    jgd Swami ji this video’s message is conveyed in a simple and clear manner. A Swan as an introvert and an Eagle as an extrovert achieve their aim. Both are basically different in nature but regularly involved in their practice. Humans if they know their nature either they will see Lord in all and love all or if they feel its a play of Maya they will start getting detached from every thing then both can enjoy the show in their way like Aadi Guru Shankaracharyaa or Mother Teressa. In Maya because its changing always we learn the path of detachment, otherway if we realize That Lord is in all we learn loving all. Thank You Datta Guru makings serious philosophy easy for us pranaams it helps me to practice Samadarshana onhn sgd

    Jaya Guru Datta Puttuji_/\_!!

    Toughest lesson on Liberation made easy by Puttuji !!

    Who can be a better guide to moksha than our sadguru? sadguru has clearly explained about the do’s and don’ts to be able to attain moksha previously in MMS 43. Journey towards liberation – One must follow strict procedures just like for travelling abroad. Todays MMS distinguishes between outward and inward travel beatifully referring to Eagles and Swans. Good to know from Puttuji that whatever the medium, we must lovingly rise above it, without getting entangled. A mere desire for liberation will not bring it to us. By sincerely practicing Sadgurudeva’s teachings and with Sadgurudeva’s Grace definitely we can reach our destination.

    Guru Datta Padamu maku Saranam !! We will follow you Appaji !!
    Sri Guru Datta !!Om Hamsagatyai Namaha!! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!

    • Archana Penukonda on March 2, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta! Feels like these are two sides of the same coin. Detachment fills us with pure, unconditional love for this universe, while pure love towards all beings enables us to see The One that pervades all and hence brings about detachment. When I try to step back and watch the things that motivate people, I see the maya and the samsara that I am a part of – spending weekend afternoons watching movies with the family, parents whose lives are consumed by love for their children, professionals driven solely by career and money etc. But, the association with Swamiji and the Ashrama is teaching me to understand what my real priorities should be. I know that the concept of pure, unconditional love exists and is what our Sathguru embodies. I know that detachment is possible even while we live in the midst of this samsara. Swamiji is teaching us the way to these two methods. Where there was the darkness of ignorance, our Guru is filling with the light of knowledge. Obeisance at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    • Sarumati on March 3, 2013 at 4:37 am

    Like an eagle flies in the sky, or a swan floats on the water, relishing the elements,
    using them, but not clinging to them, so we could also behave and take a good example.

    Birds are used to quick change, nowhere staying too long. That`s their nature.
    We can learn a lot by them … ! Hamsa Hamsaya Vidmahe . . .

    • svetha on March 4, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    My beloved SADGURU, pure love and total detachment are wonderful aims for me. I hope, with YOUR Grace one day I will attain it and that means also liberation.
    Humbly I bow down at YOUR Lotosfeet

  4. JAYA GURU DATTA! Shathakoti Shastanga pranams to lotus feet of parama poojyu Sri Swamiji give blessings to all devotee’s to maintain pure love and total detachment. JAYA GURU DATTA!
