    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    We discussed that money is sinful because it is earned only when someone is tormented. 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. This is stipulated in the scriptures. Therefore, because the sins will not be completely removed, it does not say here that all sins get wiped away. It says that ignorance is dispelled. That is the specialty of Guru Gita. It’s an unparalleled feature of the Guru Gita.

    This unparalleled Principle in the Guru Gita is pure and unknown to most. That is why, it brings merit when one reads, listens to, writes or gives the Guru Gita to others. What does giving mean? It does not mean giving the book to someone. Teaching the Guru Gita to others, enjoying the bliss oneself and enabling others to feel the bliss is what giving the Guru Gita means.

    Sloka:
    Anantaphalamapnoti guru gita japena tu |
    Anyasca vividha mantrah kalam narhanti sodasim ||
    Chanting of this Guru Gita gives endless benefits. No other mantra or spell bestows even a sixteenth of the benefits.

    Sloka:
    Sarva papa prasamani sarva sankata nasini |
    Sarvasiddhikari ceyam sarvaloka vasankari ||
    The Guru Gita wipes out all sins, destroys all hurdles and difficulties and bestows all supernatural powers. All worlds will be brought under his control.

    There’s such great power in the Guru Gita. Here, “Sarva papa parasamani” indicates that it wipes out all sins. For some people, there’s no satisfaction unless they hear this. But, you should always pray to the Guru for knowledge of the self, not for wiping away sins. To get rid of sins, you should work hard and undertake noble deeds.

    But, in the beginning of spiritual practice, the seeker is focused is on wiping away sins, on gaining the eight supernatural powers and on bringing the world under one’s control. As the seeker graduates to higher levels, the focus changes. For one seeking complete self-realization, the focus is never on these. If it is, the seeker will fall from his yogic state. In that case, why does they talk about the attainment of these benefits? We should pay close attention to the inner meaning here.

    When they say, “loka vasankari” you should understand that it reveals to you that you are in the form of all the worlds. Similarly “sarvasiddhikari” means, it gives you the feeling that you are all the supernatural powers yourself. in the same vein, “papa prasamini” and “sankata nasini” indicate that it dispels ignorance and sorrow.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
