    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Sloka:
    Hetave sarva jagatam samsararnava setave |
    Prabhave sarva vidyanam sambhave gurave namah ||

    Let’s remember this over and over again. Obeisance to Sadguru who is the cause of all the worlds, who serves as a bridge to cross the ocean of Samsara, who is the Lord of all branches of knowledge, and who is the source of bliss and happiness.

    Here, “Shambhu” refers to the place where all happiness is born. Happiness here refers to eternal happiness, not material happiness. Let’s recall the sloka again.

    Dhyanamulam guror murtih puja mulam guroh padam, mantra mulam gurorvakyam moksha mulam guroh krpa.

    Sloka:
    Dhyanamulam guror murtih puja mulam guroh padam |
    Mantra mulam gurorvakyam moksham mulam guroh krpa ||

    We cannot chant this sloka enough number of times. We cannot sing this sloka in enough number of ways. You just heard this in two different ways.

    The image of Guru is the foundation for meditation. The feet of Guru form the foundation for worship. The word of Guru is the foundation for mantra. The grace of Guru alone is the foundation for redemption.

    Sloka:
    Haranam bhavararogasya taranam klesa varidheh |
    Bharanam sarvalokasya saranam carnam guroh ||

    The foot of the Guru which roots out the disease of samsara and rebirths, which helps ferry me across the ocean of sorrow, and that which holds all the worlds, is my refuge.

    While concluding this sloka, they are making a special mention of the power of Guru’s curse and Guru’s blessings.

    Sloka:
    Siva ruste gurustrata gurau ruste na kascana |
    Tasmat paragurum labdhva tameva saranam vrajet ||

    If Siva gets angry, Guru protects. But if Guru himself gets angry, there is no one in the entire creation that can protect. So, one should seek refuge in such a supreme Guru and in his blessings.

    The slokas that have the refrain “Tasmai sri gurave namah” have concluded. Here begin the slokas with the refrain, “Sivaya gurave namah”.

    In the above phrase, “Siva” refers not just to Siva, but to the trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. To make this clear upfront, they have the following sloka.

    Sloka:
    Atrinetrassiva saksat dvibhujasca paro harih
    Yo caturvadano brahma sri guruh kathitah priye

    Siva says to Parvati, that the Shastras proclaim the Guru is Siva without the three eyes, he’s Vishnu without the four hands and he is Brahma without the four faces. Slokas in praise of Guru continue.

    Sloka:
    Nityaya nirvikaraya niravadyaya yogine |
    Niskalaya nirihaya sivaya gurave namah ||

    Here Guru is glorified as one who is eternal, unwavering, blameless, a Yogi, untainted, desireless and auspicious and verily Siva himself.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
