    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Attachment resides in the mind. We discussed that the mind along with the six enemies in us leads us to commit sins. The Guru is perhaps the only one who can find and extricate those enemies from us. Attachment leads to such grave consequences. Avadhoota Swamy taught this lesson to King Yadu using the example of the Osprey.

    One day, an Osprey was very happy to find a piece of meat. It wanted to sit comfortably and eat the meat. It grasped the piece of meat in its beak and began to fly away. A few other birds saw the bird and began attacking it for the meat. The Osprey had to put its life in danger to protect its food. It let go of its attachment for the food and immediately dropped the food from its beak. The birds stopped attacking the Osprey and went after the meat. The Osprey escaped imminent danger and saved its life. It then flew away. It would have worked out better if the bird quietly sat on a tree and ate the piece of meat. But, it flew all over the sky to show everyone that it captured the meat. Would the other birds let it be? The other birds attacked the Osprey and took away the meat. The Osprey let go of the meat to save its life.

    Similarly, a Yogi too should let of of his attachments for the objects he acquires. Avadhoota Swamy is seeing a Guru in every object, every bird, every little parrot, every ant. That is what we should learn to do. What do we do? We see these things with different feelings, with different desires. So, this is an example to show that we should let go of attachment. We should lead a simple life without ostentation. We should not associate with these things. Avadhoota Swamy taught that we should realize that attachment is the seed for sorrow to sprout. The Osprey taught that happiness is in letting go, not in holding on to things. We conclude from this that a seeker who learns from this and gives up the things that bring sorrow will gain equanimity of mind.

    Next, boy. Among the phases of life, childhood is very precious. It is very important. The time spent during childhood is like a golden dream. Childhood is a great fortune, it’s a gift. The mind is tender and innocent in that phase. The mind is not even developed that phase. In childhood, there is no knowledge or awareness about any aspect of life. That is why, parents must build the character of their children at that time, they should not ignore it. You must not say, “He’s just growing up”, “He’s a boy, we don’t have to worry about him”, “She’ a girl, we don’t have to worry about it” etc. A boy’s mind is always on toys and strange objects. He is always interested in them and collects them and keeps them near him. He always plays with them. He spends time with them. He always cries for them, and is stubborn about them. Once he gets them, he is very happy. He places them near him when he goes to bed. Let’s see what happens next.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
