    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    Dileepa realized that the lion had great powers. He knew it was not an ordinary lion because it could speak human language. He was surprised to hear it speak.
    We discussed that the king replied humbly, “Lion king, it is true that this is your territory. It is also true that this divine cow is your prey. But, this divine cow is under my protection. So, please let go of the cow and eat me instead. That will be just”. Saying so, he lowered his head to the lion. The cave glowed with divine light. Nandinidhenu looked very pleased . She said, “King, this is all my creation. I am happy with your devotion and dedication. Ask me for whatever you want”. All that transpired was an illusion. That was the Guru principle at play. Dileepa prostrated to Nandinidhenu and asked to be blessed with children. Those who place their faith in Guru and walk in the path shown by the Guru will never face difficulties in life. They will always be happy. Dileepa obediently followed every word uttered by the Guru. He obtained what he desired.

    Next, they are initiating us into the mantra for meditating on the Guru.

    Sloka:
    Brahmanandam param sukhadam kevalam jnana murtim
    dwandwatitam gagana sadrsam tatvamasyadi laksyam |
    Ekam nityam vimalamacalam sarvadhi sakshi bhutam
    bhavatitam triguna rahitam sadgurum tam namami ||
    Obeisance to Sadguru who is the source of bliss, giver of great comfort, form of pure knowledge, beyond all dualities, sky-like, the essence of Mahavakyas like Tatvamasi, the only one, unique, eternal, pure, steady, witness to all intellect, incomprehensible to intellect and who is beyond the three qualities of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.

    Here, we come across “dwandwatitam” and “bhavatitam”. That means, he is beyond the dualities and the activities of the intellect and hence cannot be comprehended by them. This can only be realized through experience. That experience is gained through service to the Guru. Next, they are initiating us into another mantra for meditating on the Guru.

    Sloka:
    Anandamanandakaram prasannam jnana swarupam nija bodha yuktam |
    Yogindra midhyam bhavaroga vaidyam srimadgurum nityamaham namami ||
    Eternal obeisance to Sadguru who is the embodiment of bliss, the source of bliss who is ever gracious, embodiment of knowledge, self-realized, the best among yogis, praise-worthy and doctor of all diseases of samsara.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
