    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    We discussed that the Sadguru never gets angry, but once he does get angry, the anger will not go away until the devotee is benefited. It’s not enough for the devotee to apologize. Until the devotee is truly transformed, he will show his anger. The Guru will reprimand the disciple in many ways. He will scold him all the time, he will scold him using different words. He will recollect over and over and scold the disciple. If you think the Guru’s scolding was over that afternoon, he will continue to scold till the evening. He will scold in new ways. Sometimes, he’ll even attribute a new wrong-doing to you. What do we think then? We may occasionally lose faith in the Guru. “I did not commit that mistake that he’s scolding me for, why is he scolding me for this?”. But, until he uproots the poison in you from the root, he will not stop. He will keep scolding . Sometimes, he may scold you every time he sees you. Sometimes, he may chase you down and scold you. Sometimes, he may call for you and scold you. He will sit you down and scold you. It’s so hard when he sits us down and scolds us. He will seem to set up this session, where he sits you in front of him, settles into a comfortable position after his meal, makes sure you’ve been well fed too and scolds you for hours on end.

    How do we feel then? Should we think that our Guru has gone crazy? Should we think we’ve gone crazy? Or, are we going insane listening to the Guru’s words? But, there’s one thing in the Guru’s heart that’s constant throughout all of this: Until you turn a new leaf – until the Guru’s resolve to benefit you is complete, the anger will not subside.
    The Guru’s compassion is boundless. It goes on for generations and lifetimes. It forgives the wrong-doers and gives them a better state. To understand this better, we should look at the story of Nemi from Bhagavatam as an example.
    Nemi Tata was a king. He did not have children for a very long time. He meditated on Brahma and received a boon that he would have a good son. But, when he still didn’t have a son, he conducted a big Yajna. Once, during the days the yajna was in progress, he got very thirsty. Unable to bear the thirst, he drank the water that was kept in a pot right there. The next morning, the priests saw the empty pot. When they realized that the king drank all the water, the priests lamented. The priests had saved that water that was being sanctified by the mantras for the queen the next day so she could have a good son. But, the king already drank the water.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
