    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta.
    Next, ocean. There is a proverb (in Telugu) that says that a full pot (of water) does not move. True. A pot that is full does not move around like an empty pot. It remains stable. If even a little water is removed from the pot, the water splashes around every time the pot is moved. If the pot is filled to the brim, the water does not splash. It remains calm. Similarly, a spiritual seeker should have a great depth of personality at all times and never lose courage. Only then will he be able to withstand the obstacles faced in life and in his spiritual practice. He will withstand joys and sorrows and other dualities.

    We sometimes observe, “This elderly person used to be fine. But, now he is sitting like a helpless person”. Lack of courage and mental strength makes a lot of elderly people weak. The reason is not disease or lack of comfort and amenities. This elderly person has no ailments. All comforts and amenities are within his reach. He even has people that will attend on him at the drop of a hat. The person looks quite okay, but seems to be in fear a lot. That is because he lost his courage. That is slowly emaciating him. Even a strong person looks like a coward if he loses courage. That is why, one must be strong in all aspects and activities. One must have the mental stability, “Let anything come, let anything happen”. One should never be afraid. One should not announce his weakness and fears to others. That is how courageously one must behave. That itself will pour life into the man. One endowed with such courage will always look alive and vibrant. This will save man’s life and give him longevity. If you keep pondering and losing courage despite having no ailments and despite having all comforts within reach, you will die early. Your lifespan will shrink. “How is this man so hale and hearty despite his illnesses and difficulties?” That’s because he has a lot of mental strength.

    Keeping what’s in the heart from getting out is Gambhiryam (profundity). You should not repeatedly talk about your fears. It is difficult for another person to correctly judge or estimate a person with a great depth of personality. When one is profound and has a depth to his personality, he can even win over enemies. That means, if one is not profound, his actions and words will clearly reveal what is in his heart. Bad things will not happen to one who has a deep personality that does not reveal everything in his heart to others. Having a great depth of personality means that he has unlimited wealth. It means he is a treasure-house of knowledge. Unless one accumulates a lot of knowledge, such a quality will not become a habit. Even if difficulties keep piling on in layers, a stable and steadfast demeanor will become a habit. That is why, when we talk about depth of personality, the ocean first comes to mind. The ocean is also called Ratnakara. He has so much depth, no one knows what’s in his heart. Who knows what’s deep inside the ocean? Nobody does.
    Jaya Guru Datta.
