  1. In objective science, we all appreciate the role of a teacher.
    Surgeons don’t get their degrees before they practice surgery under the watchful eyes of a senior surgeon, who has been there and done that before.
    Lawyers do not get to do their own practice until they’ve been apprentices under a senior lawyer.
    Is subjective science any different?
    No. Here too the sadhak needs rigorous grooming under a caring Guru. Unless the inner darkness is dispelled by a Guru, there is no way one can find his way in that inner journey.
    Pranams Dattaswaroopa Sathgurudeva!
    Even Rama needed mentoring under Gurus like Vashishta, before he ventured on his own pursuit of his mission. We are no doubt lesser mortals.. but are no less privileged.. because we are in your Gurukul.
    You reach out to us, your disciples.. through every media, and through methods that are easy for us to understand. We are following your way, to our wisdom. Koti pranams!
    Jaya Guru Datta! Your Puttuji

    Jaya Guru Datta! When I was 22, I prayed to become wise. I may not have obtained great wisdom yet, but my prayer was certainly answered when you found me 25 years ago. What an unfathonable blessing that was…I don’t think this little mind can fully comprehend what your presence in my life really means…Sri Guru Datta!

    Even with the intense and continuous efforts of Sadguru, the mind of a disciple does not easily mend or budge. Without a Sadguru, there is absolutely no chance of its ever freeing itself from the shackles of worldliness. That this world, that includes me, my family and friends, is an illusion, that all that surrounds me is as unreal as a dream without any substance to it, that my mind is my most treacherous deceiver, are truths that are so difficult to absorb and digest in spite of repeated instruction from Guru and repeated demonstrations of the fact by Him. The conscience keeps alerting and cautioning and yet, the mind tumbles down again and again into this mysterious pit of delusion, attachment, and expectation of joy that is nonexistent. There is unshakable faith that Guru will pull me out of this bottomless pit. That trust alone sustains hope that soon I will get out of this impossible dark abyss swirling with whirlpools of temptation ready to snatch and destroy me. Jaya Guru Datta

  2. Jaya Guru Datta!

    Although I had read and heard many words of wisdom before the arrival of my Sadgudeva, it did not seem to make much difference in my life, it did not really change me as a person. Now however, when my Appaji gives advice it is totally different. HIS words and teachings go into my heart and soul, causing changes in my attitude and lifestyle that were never possible before. Such is the force behind the words of the Guru. Pranams to such divinity. Jaya Guru Datta. Om namo Hanumate namaha.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Pranam Appaji.
    There is no wisdom with out gurudeva. Everything in this world can only be accomplished by knowledge and that thing can only be given by the Guru! 🙂
    Thank you Appaji. Sree Guru Datta.

    In a recent MMS, Sri Swamiji explained the necessity to have an intense desire for knowledge and that would attract a Sadguru. Now Sri Swamiji emphasises the importance of Guru in our lives. It is only a Guru who can grant us the knowledge that would liberate us from the cycle of birth and death. Only Sadguru can enlighten our hearts. We are all very fortunate to have Sri Swamiji to guide us. Jaya Guru Datta!

    JGD Appaji
    Cannot even comprehend life without Sri Swamiji.. After He blessed me with His darshan… life started on a blissful and unique journey.. still I commit mistakes but He is watching patiently and waiting..one day only with His grace the journey will be complete. I am thankful that He is there with me throughout the exciting journey through many lifetimes.
    In the meantime everyday I will strive to improve myself and pray for seva.

    Jaya Guru Datta, It is felt as though Guru has driven away darkness and ignorance in the passage of one’s life through personal friction and difficulties, not an easy process. Thank you Swamjji is not sufficient enough to convey ones gratitude for removing such ignorance. I am still only a little wiser, please give me strength. Sri Guru Datta

    • on March 21, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Sri Swamiji is teaching us so many great things. Each day our knowledge increases by the wonderful MMS sayings but also by our daily experiences which we learn to decode and understand by Sri Swamiji’s grace. Wisdom comes directly from the Divine to us. This to happen needs a pure mind and Sri Swamiji’s grace.
    Koti pranams to the Divine Lotus Feet of Sri Swamiji.

    Jaya Guru Datta Puttuji_/\_!!

    A Beautiful Guru Day MMS !!
    Swamiji Appaji !! O My Sadguru Swamiji!!
    We know,no Know,ledge and Wisdom, following you is Spiritualism
    May ‘I and my feeling’ go away let me fill you in my mind
    May there be peace in the world O Puttu Gam Sachidananda is your fame !!

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji_/\_!!

    “The key to the doors of the mansion of Wisdom are only with the Guru,” says
    Guru Gita !!.The Guru Gita emphasizes that without the helping hand of the Guru, one can never hope to reach the Goal. He is indeed the link between the Jiva and Brahman. Unless the Guru transmits his own soul-impulses to the disciple the latter will not gain spiritual wisdom. For this great and grand attainment in one’s life, what is the primary and indispensable requisite is implicit faith in Guru’s words and devotion to him. Then Guru’s grace flows by itself and lifts the Sadhak to the higher and exalted states of Consciousness and to the Ultimate Truth and Reality.

    We are truly following Our Knowledge and Wisdom – Sadgurudeva’s Nandana Gita !!
    Gurorangripadme ManaScenna Lagnam tata kim tata kim tata kim tata kim !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha !!

    Education can be gained from a university. But knowledge and wisdom can be gained only with the blessings of our Sadguru. We are so fortunate to have Appaji’s presence in our lives. And a very apt bhajan in raga Panduvarali, Jyothi velaginthi sadguru…..

    According to me, in this Kaliyuga atlest if you go through Appaji’s daily MMS, One can realize the importance of a Guru in our life to acquire the spiritual knowledge . In today’s MMS also , Appaji has indicated only about this. A person who is not following a Guru is just like walking through thick darkness. In otherwords with out any light or help. Today in this busy world people are misleaded by unwanted desires and pleasures.Therefore they don’t have the time to think about the spiritual knowledge . For such people Appaji is giving a warning that those desires are only temporary and it is not going to be permanent with us .That is why Appaji says through This MMS the importance of following a Sadguru in our life to acquire wisdom. At the sametime once we accept this concept , we should follow the Guru from our early part of our life itself. If we see the photography even in those olden days Lord Rama was following Guru naimly Vashishta and also obeyed the command of Vishvamithra during performing His Yaga. From this we should realize the importance of a Guru to be followed even in this Kaliyuga to bring us from darkness to light and to guide in the right path and to obtain wisdom finally .The Bhajan Joythi velagindi is also very apt for this MSG, since the Guru’s importance can be seen. Thank you Appaji to give us such a nice MSG and we follow You in all respects and do our seva to your mission in the best possible manner. JGD.

    Jai Guru Datta, we are so blessed to have your divine presence in our life. You are reaching out to us through every possible media. We can have your darshan through Daily MMS, we can hear you your Bhajans any time, we get your daily emails. We have definitely become better person with your guidance. Pranam Sadguru

    Jaya Guru Datta! Obeisances to the Lotus Feet of Sathguru from Whose divine feet spring the Vedas, from drinking the ablutions of Whose feet, all sins are removed and from chanting Whose name, the ocean of samsara can be crossed. As is said in the Guru Gita, it is easy to find a Guru who is ready to plunder the wealth of his disciples, but it’s not easy to find a Guru who robs the disciples of their passions. Thank You Sathgurdeva for gifting Yourself to us and giving us knowledge through Your darshans, gestures, discourses, books, bhajans, interviews, concerts, Facebook messages, MMS and so much more. When I look back, I have no doubt that the knowledge You’ve blessed me with has shaped the course of this life, even while I am fully engulfed in maya and prone to various temptations. You’ve been constantly giving me knowledge and energy and I hope I can make myself worthy of it. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    JGD Appaji – Thank you for this message as always we are lucky to have Appaji as our guru and we cannot think of our lives without Appaji. Please be always with us in our daily lives through chanting, looking at your photo, speaking about you, listening to music etc., – SGD

  4. JGD ”Nitya Shuddham Niraabhasam Niraakaram Niranjanam,Nityabodha Chidaanandam Gurum Brhama Namamaiyaham.”,constant following of Sathguru”messages and meditating upon its essence is neccessary to drive out the darkness of ignorance accumulated over the past births.I pray to Appaji to bless us .

    For us, the beings in Kali Yuga, chanting His name, singing His names are the only recourse. And, unless chanted once every few hours, this money mind, with million temptations, being provided by the current world, is sure to go away from the path of Guru’s guidance. As we try our part, please keep correcting us and keeping us with You, Appaji. You are the only Rakshaka from all angles. Anyadha Saranam naasthi. Sri Guru Datta.

    Teacher is required to learn any subject. For spiritual lessons all of us need a wonderful teacher who will always guide us in right path, loves and cares like mother, guides like father and supports and stands with us in all circumstances for moral support like friend. May lord bless us to have such a wonderful silent teacher like “Sri Swamiji” and simply follow HIS instructions with complete trust.
