Nandana SGS MMS 94

  1. Like a master sculptor chips away bit by bit with his chisel to bring out the beautiful statue hidden in a stone, Appaji our divine master has been chipping away all the unwanted parts of our inner personality bit by bit.. two minutes at a time.. through these compact ‘packed in pepper’ MMS messages.

    Today’s MMS sounds liberating with the bhajan “Dattāvadhūta svāmī kāvave, cittavimōha dhvansamu cēyave” sung by His Holiness in the background. { Avadootha – The ascetic who has renounced all worldly attachments and connections; Cittavimoha – confusion of the mind; Dhvamsamu ceyave – to destroy } What can be more liberating than destroying all the confusion in the mind ? And who other than Datta – The Avadootha can help us with that ?

    We are meant to be an ocean of bliss as seen in the opening frames of this MMS. There are pollutants that do keep flowing into this ocean, from which we need to protect ourselves. So, this MMS invokes Abhayaprada – Lord Vishnu – The one who bestows safety ( abhaya ). This MMS is a clarion call for those who resort to worldly love, possessions and achievements for their safety.. in vain !

    ‘Worldly love’ stands for ‘desire’ (kamna).. The love of anyone and anything material, towards an end to self-gratification ( Eg: Ravana ). More money only asks for more and more money. More possessions ask for more and more possessions ( Eg: Mahabali ). MMS 36 declared ‘Grief grows from desire and attachment’. And MMS 93 of yesterday declared nothing can be more artificial than ‘pride of achievement’ because it is God’s Grace that accomplishes everything. Lets also recall MMS 58 that declared ‘Righteousness is truth’ (Rama destroyed Ravana. Vamana destroyed Mahabali).

    Let’s stitch all these elements together into a prayer: “Oh Lord Datta! Please bestow safety by destroying the confusions in my mind, that are caused by worldly love and pride of achievements and possessions. I know these are false. When I know only your grace accomplishes everything, it is false to have pride of achievement. When I know only grief grows from desire and attachment, it is false to engage in worldly love and take pride in possessions. Lord Datta ! Am so thankful to you for visiting this earth in my lifetime, as my dear Appaji. Am so thankful to my Appaji for taking me into the warmth of His divine love ( prema ). My journey towards inner realization feels so safe in His care, because if I ever allow my mind to get confused, He will do ‘chittavimoha dwamsamu’ and put me back on track to spiritual progress”.

    A million pranams at the holy feet of our Gurudeva, Jaya Guru Datta.
    Your Puttuji.

    Jaya Guru Datta, Swamiji, this is a powerful message this morning, and one that can be painful to learn. Once a moment came in this life when that pain turned to joy when the realization dawned that for all of this life, no matter what happened, no matter who died, what changes came, the one constant was God who had always been with me and always was with me no matter where I was, no matter what I had done! This realization was Guru’s gift….It is Guru who is with us in each and every moment, less than a thought away….I love that the first mantra is reminding us to not be afraid…..indeed–God/Guru’s love is constant….

    • Savitri on September 1, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Just the last days I have experienced the difference between the worldly love and the cosmic love. The worldly love can make a lot of pains, but the cosmic love is sweet and stable. Nothing can destroy it. It flows and flows and gives good feelings. It is really a wonderful feeling!!!!!

    Jaya Guru Hanuman,

    Beautiful bhajan which has so much inner meaning with nicely illustrated visuals. The bubbles at the end of video shows the essence of this message. All wordly love and possessions are like bubbles in water. They are temporary. Only Guru will always be with us – protecting and nurturing. Below is the bhajan in the MMS and meaning as found in the book ‘Songs of the Free’. The book can be bought online at –

    Dattavadhuta swami kavave
    Cittavimoha dwamsamu ceyave

    Asrita moha kshayakara kavave
    Cupuna sakti patamu ceyave……….. Dattavadhuta swami

    Karma ksyamidi kavale kavale
    Karmalanorcedi dirata niyave……….. Dattavadhuta swami

    Sajjana sangati kurici kavave
    Sachchidananda sphurtini cupave…….. Dattavadhuta swami

    Oh Datta, the ascetic who has renounced all worldly attachments and connections, protect us, Destroy all our infatuations and temptations

    Destroy our delusions and bless us.
    Grant us the transmission of energy through your gaze

    We need the termination of our worldly acts more and more.
    Grant us the forbearance to bear the results of our actions that bind us.
    Enable us the association of the righteous people
    Let us be inspired and immersed in Truth, Knowledge and Bliss.

    Dattatreya is the first Sadguru. He took form because we all are Karma Jeevas (bound by the fruits of our own actions). We suffer due to our Karma and our own mistakes. The fruits of our actions take different forms and torment us. Family worries, family tree and the family snake keep one sleepless and awake out of fear. Attachment to name and fame causes one to be overzealous. All these are virtually the big seeds for delusion and disappointment.

    A realized person is unaffected by such attachments as he has already attained supreme knowledge by his prolonged practice of the preaching of preceptor. Close association with such pious people, purifies the mind and bestows salvation. If due to misfortune, some impure thoughts emanate in a devotee’s mind, Datta corrects them and leads one in the path divine. Thus the divine protection always leads us to perfection. Datta moves about daily in several subtle forms to protect and guide his disciples everywhere. Hence surrender to Datta, who manifests in both the moving and the unmoving. Datta’s exclusive mission is to uplift his devotees.

    Humble prostrations to the lotus feet of Swamiji who is Avadhoota

    Dear Puttuji The Last Paragraph is what we all want. Dear Appaji, Lord Datta, Avadhudha Please put us back in track in spiritual progress. Om Namo Hanumate Namaha Jaya Guru Datta

    • Mukund Mohan on September 1, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta Appaji !!

    Thank you for reminding us of the important lesson that desire for worldly benefits and the sense of personal accomplishment and recognition are paths to unhappiness and to our detriment. This is such a useful lesson to note in today’s world. Each SGS MMS strikes a chord with me and is very relevant to what I go through at that moment. The MMS are so soothing and reassuring.

    Sadgurudeva’s divine voice singing Jai Guru Datta Sri Guru Datta………………… took me straight to Appaji !! I surrender and pray to Sadgurudeva to always remain in my heart and make me work hard towards goals without a sense of attachment and tamasic control. Please let me be a puppet in your divine hands fulfilling samsaric karma without much care for the end results
    and self-conjured personal ambition. This world is indeed an extremely confusing maya,
    and I am grateful that Appaji is with me, to take care. !!.

    Yes Puttuji, I pray to Appaji, to protect my mind when confused a little bit also, to put me back on track to Spiritual progress. Wishing a Happy Third month Anniversary!!

    Avadhoota Chintana Sri Guru Deva Datta !!
    Sri Guru Datta Hauman Ki Jai !! Puttuji Ki Jai !! Nanana SGS MMS Ki Jai !!
    Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha!!

    Jaya Guru Datta,

    Beautiful video. … Many times when we grow up in our career path, we think it is because of our hard work we have grown up, which increases our pride.Thank you Appaji for making us understand through detailed explanation. Being under Pujya Appaji’s umbrella i pray Sri Swamiji make us realize that every achievement is because of HH grace.

    Dear Appaij, I pray to Lord Datta may I face the difficulties in life and overcome them – knowing You will be always there. Thank you dear Sadgurudeva to put me on the right track again.

    • Prasad Madala on September 2, 2012 at 6:26 am

    Jaya Guru Datta,
    Nice Video with Sri SWAMIJI in the middle of a bright sunflower with dazzling sparks.
    As once SWAMIJI said “you own nothing, everything is HIS grace and you are only care taker”. If we remember this all the time, we will attain “chittavimoha”. With HIS blessings and devine grace, we will get this stage sooner.
    My humble pranamams to APPAJI’s lotus feet.
    Om Sri Sadgurubhyo Namaha!

    జయ గురుదత్త, శ్రీ గురుదత్త, ఓం నమో హనుమతే నమః
    తండ్రి నిత్యానందాన్ని అందించే సచ్చిదానందాన్ని మరచి నేను, నాది, నావాళ్ళు అంటూ మోహపాశ బద్దులమై ఎండమావులవెంట పరుగులుపెట్టే మీ బిడ్డలను చూచి, తల్లి తన బిడ్డలను పొత్తిళ్ళలో దాచి కాచుకున్నట్టుగా, తండ్రి తప్పటడుగులు వేస్తున్న బిడ్డలకు చేతులందిచ్చి నడక నేర్పినట్ట్లుగా, మీ బిడ్డలను భక్తి, జ్ఞాన, వైరాగ్య మార్గంవైపు నడిపించి ముక్తిఫథంబునకు చేర్చ దత్తావధూత స్వామివై కావగా వచ్చిన తండ్రి మీ పాదపద్మములకు అనంతకోటి ప్రణామములు.

    జయ గురు దత్త,
    నిజమే, ఈ సృష్టిలో నాది, నేను సాధించాను అన్నది ఏది వుండదు. అంతా భగవంతునిదే ఆయన సంకల్పం వలెనే ఇది జరుగుతున్నది అన్నది నిరంతరం గుర్తుంచుకున్నప్పుడు నేను,నాది అంతా భ్రమ అని తెలుస్తుంది. అది సాధనతోనే సాధ్యం. గురుదేవ మీ భోధనలు , చూపుతున్న మార్గంలో మేము నడిచేలా అనుగ్రహించండి స్వామి.

    ఓం సద్గురుభ్యో నమః .

    APPAJI’S golden words are really ‘Awesome’.”WORLDLY LOVE AND PRIDE OF ACHIEVEMENT AND POSSESSION ARE FALSE” is good and true.

    Jaya Guru Datta!
    The love of Sri Sadgurudeva and towards Sri Sadgurudeva makes it possible to separate more and more from worldly affections and wordly love. It is the separation from being bound to things and beings who are transient.
    If we recognize God in all living beings we can direct our affection and love towards God. Towards Sri Guru Datta.
    i like the last scene so much where it rains under water. Sri Guru Datta makes all this possible.
    Sri Guru Datta
    Om Namo Hanumate Namah

    • on September 2, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Great MMS video… the concept of Guru Shisya relationship is age old. Shisya(disciple) should always keep his vessel(mind) clean to Guru to bless him with spiritual knowledge. Scriptures says, Guru is more eager to bless disciple with spiritual knowledge then disciple himself, that is why Pujya Guru deva first cleanses us from inside(our mind), then imparts knowledge on us which is permanent. I pray to pujya gurudeva to bless us so that we keep our mind clean and be ready for Guru’s teachings.
    Sri Guru Datta

    Love this MMS! Beautiful depiction of Divinity motionless ie Dattatreya – wherein we have to go to Him..with Divinity in Motion ie Appaji who Himself has walked into our lives! When we have a chance to possess the creator Himself who is amongst us, running after these worldly possesions is foolish,…our real wealth is our Sadguru,…lets aim for Him!

    • Han on September 3, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Nothing compares to the Love of my Datta Sadguru! It is through His Grace that the desires and resulting attachments become burned away through the cooling ocean of His embrace. He is all and there is nothing more beautiful than Sri Swamiji. Please help me keep the desires at bay dear Datta Avadhuta. Jaya Guru Datta

    • annessa on September 3, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Pranams to you Puttuji for reminding us of this.

    • Vindar Badall on September 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Jai Guru Datta.
    Thanks Appaji for your grace, compassion, patience and blessings as you are showing us in this video. Please forgive us as we stumble and fall in the trap of worldly enjoyments. You are most forgiving oh Sadgurudev, only You can take us through this. Jai Guru Datta.

    • on September 4, 2012 at 9:37 am

    JGD Puttuji!! Only Sadguru can help us understand this truth. He alone is our BFF!! He trims all our ego, smoothens our rough edges and help us shine. I know for myself that I have been a recipient of His amazing grace. He has really trimmed my roughness and has made me a much better soul. How else will I explain this transformation, from an arrogant girl to a soft spoken woman?? All is HIS grace on me. Really, there is nothing that we can call our own. The education we have, the jobs we hold, the property we have acquired and the big brands as we see ourselves as are all His grace on us. He gives us all these and more and even takes away. Being able to see the highs and lows of life as equal is very important. And this too is His training. Praying to you Appaji, to give me the strength to see things the way you want me to see them. Pranams to your lotus feet and lots of love.
    Thank you Puttuji. JGD.

    • on September 4, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    • svetha on September 11, 2012 at 11:09 am

    Wunderbare Naturbilder, reich an Farben und Formen zeigen so klar, dass dies kein Werk von uns Menschen ist, dass da eine andere Kraft am Wirken ist. Es ist dieselbe Kraft, dia auch durch uns wirkt. Es ist SWAMIJI, unser SADGURU, der uns durchströmt mit SEINEM Lächeln, SEINER Liebe.

    • sridevi on November 1, 2012 at 5:32 am

    Jai Guru Datta! Only God’s love is unselfish. As He is “full”, there is no room for selfishness, for wanting something for Him. God loves His creation, so He is always giving giving giving. “God gives gives gives and forgives, man gets gets gets and forgets”.
