During the recent Global Gita Conference held at Datta Peetham, it’s convener, Dr. P. V. Nath from United Kingdom, who has translated Pujya Sri Swamiji’s biography into English, was talking to Pujya Gurudeva and Sri Bala Swamiji. He mentioned that parrots of Shuka Vana are able to say “Rama”, “Datta” and other words but might not be able to say “Hari Om Tat Sat”. His wife immediately said that Gurudeva can achieve it if he wishes to.

Ram, the African Grey Parrot was born in Shuka Vana in Mysore Ashrama. It was being taken care by Smt. Lalita & Sri. G. Satyanarayana inside Ashrama. Even after the bird was an year old, it had not started speaking. When it was brought to Sri Swamiji, He took the parrot in His hand and told the bird that it will be sent away from Ashrama if it does not speak. Instantly, it said “Datta”. A little later, it said “Hari Om Tat Sat”. Now, Ram says “Om Namah Shivaya” and other Namas. It is indeed a blessed bird, having got Akashara Abhyasa from Pujya Sri Swamiji. Sri Swamiji remembers Dr. Nath’s wish and conveys his blessings and good wishes to Dr. Nath, his wife and the volunteers of Shuka Vana.

      Ram speaks so well he has certainly learned something from Kali the African
      Grey Parrot. It must be great being born in Shuka Vana caressed and nutured
      by Sri Swamiji. Ram must have learned most important Mantras right from the
      egg. He must be a great personality because he takes care to speak very

      Being born in Mysore Ashram as a parrot leads to a Sadhu-parrot :).
      Chanting mantras all day long, knowing all holy syllables and listening to
      bhajans daily is natural for them. What an amazing and blessed bird-life!

      How sweetly the blessed bird is chanting Mantras. Literally speaking many
      people could not utter “Hari om Tatsat” kind of a mantras properly how
      come a small Lovely bird utter it so clearly !! With the DIVINE GRACE of
      Appaji any wonder could happen. Now I recollect a Sloka in a sataka Pangum
      langaithe girim… even a Physically challenged without legs can climb
      hills with the grace of GOD.

      jaya guru datta appaji.. this is so unbelievable and amazing.. hari om
      tatsat.. datta .. rama.. 

    • Datta Babu

      ‘Hari Om Tat Sat’ means ‘That is Truth’. That which I see with my eyes and
      that which is beyond my eyes are both the same, not different. The creator
      and the creation are not two. The creator has not created creation, but has
      manifested or transformed himself into creation.
      All these truths are represented in the mantra ‘Hari Om Tat Sat’. When I
      say ‘Hari Om Tat Sat’,
      We will be realize and understand only with Sadguru/God Divine Blessings,
      Ram (african grey parrot) very very sweet voice,and its totally amazing
      divine yoga bird 🙂 

    • Sruti Parvataneni

      Jaya Guru Datta Appaji! It’s apparent that chanting “Hari Om Tat Sat”,
      “Rama”, and “Datta” is part of Ram’s daily activities, as he is seen
      standing on one leg in a relaxed state. It is so cute when he chuckles
      gently in between his chants. 🙂
