    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    We discussed that if desire is not fulfilled, it causes sorrow. To withstand this sorrow, there is no other means except refuge in the Guru. Guru teaches dispassion. He fixes and improves our lives and makes us human. He teaches us the ways to get out of the web of desires.

    Dispassion is a part of our lives. If we have dispassion, we learn to face our sorrows. We learn to courageously overcome those sorrows. Studying scriptures like Bhagavad Gita helps develop our mind and intellect. It teaches us to lead this journey of life smoothly.

    “Asahi paramam dukham, nairasyam paramam sukham”

    This tells us that desires lead to the deepest sorrows and lack of desires lead to the highest happiness. Avadhoota Swamy told King Yadu that this is what he learned from the prostitute. A seeker who limits his desires to those that are possible and combines them with a little dispassion and leads his life accordingly will not be affected by joys or sorrows. Be careful.

    Next, bird. For the human birth to be fulfilled, attachments should be removed first. In reality, nothing is eternal. Man created bonds and attachments, wealth and mansions. They do not last forever. Reputation and prestige last. It does not even take a second to behave badly. But, it takes a lot of effort to be good. Too much attachment ends up as a roadblock to man’s progress.

    Excessive attachment is the reason some children end up being stubborn. Attachment benefits only when it is within limits. It can increase good will and affection. Attachment should be kept well in control. When we show excessive attachment, children are spoiled, the mind gets spoiled, the family get spoiled, friends get spoiled, reputation and prestige get spoiled. One must not have unrestrained and uncontrolled attachment. Attachment should always be under control.

    King Parikshit who had a curse earlier, heard the Bhagavatam completely from Suka Maharishi. He sacrificed his attachments and his love for life and thereby attained liberation. King Parikshit heard completely the essence of the Bhagavatam from the parrot-faced Suka Maharishi. That is why, he was able to let go of his attachments and love for life and attain liberation. In Mahabharata, King Dhritarashtra had uncontrollable affection for his sons (the Kauravas) due to which he became of the cause of ruin of the great Kuru empire.

    Attachment resides in the mind. There are six enemies in us. The Guru is the only one who can find and extricate those enemies from us. We do not even realize their presence. Those six enemies have taken shelter in us. Let’s move ahead and learn about these six enemies.

    Jaya Guru Datta
