Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:
Sri Guru Datta.
We discussed that a Guru always passes on all his powers to the deserving disciples. You should strive to make yourself a deserving disciple. Let’s look at an example.
You have a wick. You should soak it in the oil called spiritual practice and keep it ready. Do not distress yourself with regret that you have not accomplished anything as yet. Start now. Soak the wick in the oil of spiritual practice. When you are ready, the Guru will one day, light up the lamp. The Guru is the eternal light. The Guru’s light drives away darkness. The Guru’s light gives knowledge. When this lamp is lit, it drives away ignorance. We heard the bhajan, “Jyoti veligindi, jeevudi cheekati tolagindi”. This light is the light of Guru’s compassion that’s glowing.
In the path of meditating on the Guru, we are being taught the method of researching into and understanding the Atman. This is the ultimate goal in worshipping the Guru.
Guroh krpa prasadena brahmahamiti bhavayet |
Anena mukti margena hyatmajnanam prakasayet ||
With the initiation attained through Guru’s grace, one should feel that he is the Brahman (Absolute). This is the path of salvation. With this gradually shines the light of self realization.
The Guru initiates us into the truth of “tat tvam asi”. That means you are the Parabrahman. But, we don’t feel like believing it right away, “How is it possible? Tat Tvam Asi. I can’t believe it. I don’t feel like believing it. I am not the Absolute. I have this big human body. “ A lot of questions crop up. ”I am Venkayya…why does it say that I am not Venkayya? How can I be Brahma?“ Because you’ve come from Brahma, you are Brahma. There’s another question that crops up. “How do I know if I’ve come from Brahma?”. This can be proved in multiple different ways.
We all have our ancestral lineages. If you trace back the lineage, you will see that the starting point of that lineage was a maharishi (great saint). Keep tracing back where we’ve come from…we’ve come from somewhere. Our ancestral lineage can be traced back to great saints. You will also realize that the saint was the son of Brahma.
“What is your name?”
“What is your father’s name?”
Trace back to his father and the father’s father and so on. As you keep going back, it will end up at a rishi (saint). Who is the father of the rishi? Brahma. Brahma is the creator. Since the rishi came from the the Brahma, the Absolute, it is evident that your lineage has come from Brahma. That is why, you are Brahma. What’s wrong with that? We are suffering because we don’t understand this.
Jaya Guru Datta.
