Satsanga at Vijayawada on 24.06.2022

Posted on: 28/06/2022

The right half of God Datta is preacher (Guru) and left half is God (Bhagavan). Both are one and the same God Datta. God and Datta are one and the same personality because you cannot separate God and Guru in to two different persons. Generally, the left half is represented by wife and right half is represented by husband. In that way, we can treat two personalities here. The right half or Guru represents Datta or husband and Guru stands for spiritual...

Dharmaadharma Prakaranam (Topic of Justice and Injustice)

Posted on: 26/06/2022

1) Pīḍanaṃ copakāraśca, dvayaṃ sat pāpa puṇyayoḥ |
Darśanānna tarka sādhyaḥ, nirṇayaḥ kṣīra vārivat||

[Some define justice as help done to others and injustice as the harm done to others. The higher form of this definition is different, which means that help done to good people and harm done to bad people is justice whereas harm done to good people and help done to bad people is injustice. Hence, the soul must have both capacities and qualities to do help as well as harm. Both these are to be used in proper...

Important Message to Devotees from His Holiness Shri Datta Swami

Posted on: 26/06/2022

I want to give a mantra to every devotee and a little introduction before giving that mantra. The subject is that a devotee is unable to concentrate his/her mind on the spiritual line (which means loving God without aspiration for any fruit in return) and people are worried about their worldly problems, which disturb their minds obstructing their concentration on the spiritual line. By solving the worldly problems, one will get peace of mind to concentrate on God with real love. Of course, many people look at God to solve their worldly problems only, which is just instrumental devotion, thereby the eternal doubt...

My Experiences with my Sadguru His Holiness Shri Datta Swami

Posted on: 26/06/2022

[By Shri Suryanarayana]

With the salutations at the lotus feet of Swami, I would like to share my experiences with my contemporary human incarnation of Lord Datta i.e., His Holiness Shri Datta Swami. I met Swami in January, 2000 for the first time in Shri Ajay garu’s house in Vijayawada. From then onwards, I had witnessed innumerable experiences. In fact, I daily experience Swami’s kindness on me in one form or the other in my daily life. First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratefulness to Swami because of the three most important things given to me i.e., human birth, marvelous true spiritual knowledge, allowing me to serve Him. In fact, even in the worldly life also, I am blessed with an excellent job ...

Pravrutti Nivrutti Prakaranam (Topic of Worldly and Spiritual Lives)

Posted on: 25/06/2022

1) Ādyā bāhyāntarā'styeva, parāntarmātra niṣṭhitā |
Pratīkopāsane hyevam, hitvā jīva narāyitam ||

[Pravrutti means the worldly life, which is both external and internal. Nivrutti means spiritual life, which is internal only and not external due to the impossibility of general life. Pravrutti is blended with the external life in the case of any soul belonging to Pravrutti or Nivrutti. This means pure Nivrutti is not possible in this world, completely devoid of Pravrutti. External means body and word, and internal means mind. The conclusion is that a soul can have complete...

Karma Yoga Prakaranam (Topic of Practical Devotion)

Posted on: 24/06/2022

1) Bhatkernirūpaṇaṃ karma, doṣāddoṣaḥ guṇāt guṇaḥ |
Gurvasadguru bhedo'yam, vāhayoriva dṛśyate||

If the knowledge about God is true and complete, the devotion that arises out of it is also true. If this theoretical spiritual devotion is true, the practical proof of it is the practical devotion. We are not sure that the soul has gained complete true spiritual knowledge...

Why does 'elinati sani' come for human beings?

Posted on: 24/06/2022

Shri Divakara Rao asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, In Datta Veda, You said that "The human being born in this world is not subjected to any punishment of the sin done in the previous birth. When the soul comes into this world from hell, all the punishments of previous sins were completed and the soul is temporarily reformed" (Page no 138 first paragraph- for devotees reference). Then why does 7.5 years of elinati...

[By Priyanka Seethepalli]

Namaskaram to all devotees. Due to Swami’s grace, my family and I could meet Swami for the first time in Vijayawada at Shri Balakrishnamurthy garu’s (Tatagaru’s) house.

It was an unforgettable and extraordinary day, where for the first time I felt like my life suddenly found its missing piece, clear goal...

Jñānāt pāka kriyā tadvat, Bhagavad viṣaye kramaḥ ||

“Let us say you tasted a special sweet in a function, which attracted you a lot. Later on, you enquired about its composition materials and way of preparation and this enquiry is knowledge (Jñāna yoga). Now, you implement the procedure of its preparation after procuring its composing materials. The first enquiry is Jnaana Yoga and procuring of materials and the preparation work is Karma Yoga.

Miracles experienced by Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya

Posted on: 23/06/2022

[By Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya]

I'm Thrylokya. Since my childhood, I was interested in learning new things and my academic grades were always high. Being proactive, I gained people's attention and I thought it was permanent. I was in 12th standard when I lost my cousin. Until then, my aim was only to earn a luxurious life. His death had left my mind with many unanswered questions about life. I understood 2 things for sure. 1) I had to leave all my worldly achievements here once I die. 2) Nobody is going to come with me when I die. I couldn't perform well in IIT entrance and had to join Amrita University at Coimbatore...

Jnaana Yoga Prakaranam (Topic of Spiritual Knowledge)

Posted on: 22/06/2022

1) Jñānā dākarṣaṇaṃ paścāt, prayatna iti lokavat |
Puro jñāna priyā dyānam, Rukmiṇī Kṛṣṇayorapi ||

To know the details of the goal is knowledge or Jñāna yoga, which generates attraction towards the goal finally resulting in the practical effort to reach the goal. This is the common concept in spiritual line as well as worldly life. By knowing the details of a city, you are developing attraction to reach the city and finally making the practical effort of journey. Even in the case of Rukminii marrying Krishna...

Swami, could You please explain how to practice 'Sthita Prajnataa'?

Posted on: 21/06/2022

[A question by Ms. Thrylokya]

Swami replied:- i) You are the best example for Sthitaprajna from your childhood as per the divine vision of God Datta. There are two fields of human life. One is worldly life and the other is spiritual life. In worldly life, the soul has worldly bonds only as the final goal and in spiritual life, bond with God alone is the final goal. The colour of Sthitaprajna is different in the worldly life than the colour in the spiritual life. In Pravrutti also, Nivrutti exists as a false phase. God is not the final goal in Pravrutti. God is used as an instrument just like any other worldly instrument ...

Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, You said that Spiritual Knowledge is important to generate devotion towards God. Can we stop learning Spiritual knowledge after getting devotion?

Is it correct to speak whatever we think in mind?

Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, ancient people followed unity in thought, word & action. But now, we live in a civilized world where people show good manners although their intentions are different. Is it correct to talk whatever we think in mind? Is it better to show good manners externally irrespective of our intentions in mind?

Swami replied:- In the ancient times also, people of present day existed. Shakuni was always having wrong intension, but was showing extraordinary good manners to cover his ill intensions. There is also an ancient saying “Ati vinayaḥ dhūrta lakṣaṇam”, meaning the same above told ...

Please enlighten us about the greatness of Lord Subrahmanya and details about His birth?

Posted on: 21/06/2022

[Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, could You please enlighten us about the greatness of Lord Subrahmanya and details about His birth? At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Thrylokya]

Swami replied:- Devotees shall have wisdom apart from intelligence. Devotees worry about the points that help them in their spiritual progress. Originally, sage Vyaasa wrote the secondary scriptures briefly mentioning the points that help the spiritual aspirant in his/her spiritual effort. These secondary scriptures (Puraanas) have become bulky due to insertions of verses composed by some ignorant or mischievous...

How can variety play a role for the entertainment of God?

Posted on: 21/06/2022

Shri Anil asked: Since the end result which is bliss is the same in monistic and dualistic love, how can variety play a role for the entertainment of God?

Swami replied:- Bliss is one and the same in monistic and dualistic love, but, it is well understood that there is difference between monistic and dualistic love. The intensity and quantity of bliss may be one and the same, but variety brings...
