    Jaya Guru Datta.

    Sloka:
    Deva kinnara gandharvah pitaro yaksa caranah |
    Munayo naiva jananti guru susrusane vidhim ||
    The method of filial service to Guru is a big secret. The Gods, and other heavenly spirits (Kinnaras, Yakshas, Gandharvas and Charanas), Pitr Devatas (spirits of ancestors) and the great saints don’t know the method. None of them knows the method of service to the Guru or the Guru principle. Next, they are stating the reason why so many beings fail to understand the principle of Guru.

    Sloka:
    Madahankara garvena tapo vidya balanvitah |
    Samsara kuharavarte patita ghanta yantravat ||

    On account of penance, education and muscular power, people become egoistic and fall into the whirlpool of samsara. This is likened to a pot tied to the device for drawing water from a well. The pot may appear to float momentarily, but it quickly sinks into the water. Some people say “I have only a daughter. Once she’s married, I’ll have no other worry. The rest of my life will be spent in chanting the divine names of the Lord. All I need is for daughter to get married, I need nothing else”. The daughter gets married. The father is enjoying seeing his daughter and son-law in marital bliss, but before long, there are grandsons and granddaughters. The pot sinks again. Before it could rise, it sank again. New responsibilities are added. People think, “I can avoid these responsibilities, these don’t affect me”. And even while they are saying this, they are taking on these new responsibilities. People that say that they will avoid these responsibilities can definitely not escape them. Those who avoid them will do so silently.
    Next, they are talking about the greatness of meditation upon Guru in very clear terms.

    Sloka:
    Dhyanam srnu mahadevi sri guroh kathayami te |
    Sarva saukhyakaram tadvat bhukti mukti pradayakam ||

    Siva says to Parvati to listen to him talk about the meditation upon Guru which is the all comforting, the source of satisfying the worldly needs as well as of granting redemption.

    Meditation as we discussed yesterday should be done with purity in thought, word and deed (trikarana shuddhi)

    Sloka:
    Srimatparabrahma gurum smarami srimatparabrahma gurum bhajami |
    Srimatparabrahma gurum vadami srimatparabrahma gurum namami ||
    Obeisance to Guru, the embodiment of the Absolute, whose name I chant, whose praises I sing, who I offer salutations to. Guru Datta.

    Jaya Guru Datta
