    Dr Prakasarao Uncle’s Speech on Guru Purnima, July 12,2014, Buena Park, CA.

    Vyasaya-vishnu-rupaya, Vyasa-rupaya-vishvaye,
    Namo-vaye-Brahma-nidhaye, Vashishthaya-namo-namah.
    It is a time to remember Lord Dattatreya, regarded as God and the Guru of Gurus, who considered twenty-four Natural elements, creatures, humans and lifetime experiences as His Gurus, and learnt a number of lessons from all of them. The forbearance from earth, all pervasiveness from air, limitlessness of sky, rejuvenation from water, detachment from Pigeon, self-sacrifice from fruit-bearing trees, the changeless moon, the omnipresence of sun, mighty banyan tree, value of surrender from python, desire that leads to destruction from firefly, the biksha concept from honey, delusion by distraction from elephant, awareness of vulnerability from deer, wary of sense organs from fish, vairagya concept from the courtesan named Pingala, contentment from a child, one pointed concentration from archer, the powerful wind are some of the gurus that have provided flashes of intuition that guided Lord Dattatreya to become the guru of Gurus. On this Guru Purnima, it’s appropriate to remember the Adi Guru – Lord Dattatreya.
