    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta.

    Sloka:
    Guru gitamimam devi suddhatattvam mayoditam |
    Gurum mam dhyayati premna hrdi nityam vibhavaya |
    Siva says to Parvati that she should meditate upon him with devotion, treating him as Guru and constantly visualizing the Guru Gita and the Principle of Truth he revealed.

    Sloka:
    Iyam cedbhakti bhavena pathyate sruyatethava |
    Likhyate dhiyate pumbih bhavedbhava vinasini ||
    When one reads the Guru Gita with devotion, listens to it, writes it or gives it to others, ignorance is dispelled.
    There is so much power in the Guru Gita. Merely donating the book to another is enough. Giving someone the book saying, “I am giving you this book” is enough. Telling another person, “Study the Guru Gita, your difficulties will be removed” is enough. “I am going to study the Guru Gita, please sit with me and listen” is also enough. Reading, listening to or writing the Guru Gita is enough. Lot of people write the slokas in the Guru Gita. Anything you do along these lines will dispel your ignorance.

    “Bhava vinasini” means that it dispels ignorance and grants knowledge. That is the specialty of Guru Gita. Normally, other sacred texts will say that your sins will be removed and that you will attain the position of Indra (the king of Gods). But, they will not say that the ignorance will be dispelled. All sacred texts say that if you read or listen to the text, to the great stories and instances in those sacred texts, you will get a lot of punya (merit) and will attain the position of Indra, but they will never say that you ignorance will be dispelled. Guru Gita is the only text that says that your ignorance will be dispelled. If you read the Guru Gita or listen to it, your sins and ignorance will be wiped away. The Guru Gita also says that your ignorance will be removed and that you will gain knowledge. No other sacred text says this.

    Think about it a little bit. It says that your sins will be removed. How will your sins be removed? It is possible to get rid of sins without experiencing the outcome? Some people undertake Yajnas and vows and rituals to get rid of sins. They spend a little money to undertake this. How does that money come to them? Where does it come from? It only comes at the expense of someone. Some people may get angry when they hear this. “I did not torment anyone, you are saying that I tormented someone, but I did not. I worked very hard to earn this money” Yes, true, you worked hard to earn the money. That means, you tormented yourself to earn this money. You tormented yourself, depriving yourself of food and sleep, walking long distances, facing many obstacles, tolerating insults, tolerating hunger, thirst etc. It means that you tormented yourself, not others. You think your hard work is all yours, it’s up to you. But it’s true that you tormented yourself. You cannot deny that. Who gave you the right to torment your good and healthy body? Whose loss is it if you torment that body and prematurely lose your life? Hence, always remember that money is obtained only through torment. That’s why it’s called “sinful money” or “torment money”. Someone got tormented, someone is tormenting, and that is why there is money. That is why money is sinful. Great souls don’t even touch the money with their hands.

    So, one may wonder if the sins get wiped away when one does Yajna with such sinful money. They do. But, only the sins from this birth get wiped away, not the sins you’ve been carrying on from previous births. Let’s see what happens next.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
