    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    When we talk about profundity, 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, but he holds a lot of precious stones and gems. It is said that the belly of the ocean contains great wealth. Streams, rivers, rivulets etc come running in to the ocean. With a big heart, the ocean invites them into him and gives them refuge. He never refuses anyone. He gives his water to the sun, helps it precipitate as rain and benefits everyone.

    Ocean and Lord Rama, both belong to the Iksvaku dynasty. That is why Lord Rama was compared to the ocean as “Samudra iva sindhubihi.” Noble souls would come as rivers would, to join the ocean of Sri Rama. Everyone coming to have darshan of Sri Rama was uniting with the ocean. Sri Rama would treat them with great respect and give them all refuge. Similarly, just as the line “Samudra iva gambhirye” from Ramayana says, Sri Rama had the depth of personality like the ocean. He had a large heart. Due to that, a state of equanimity is attained.

    Avadhoota Swamy is explaining this matter to King Yadu in great detail. “Yogi should always be happy. He should be unmoved by dualities like attachment and aversion. He should be (stable) like the full pot of water. One should be like the ocean that does not overflow even when the rivers flow into it. That means, he should not be overjoyed when his desires are fulfilled. Just as the ocean does not dry up in summer, a yogi should not be depressed in the face of sorrows. He must focus his mind on God, on Lord Narayana, and have equanimity of mind”. A seeker who learns this from the Lord and puts it into practice will attain Brahman.

    Next, let’s move ahead. Moth. Attachment brings downfall, regardless of the stature of the man. Attachment is of many kinds, such as attachment towards wealth, towards power etc. The most dangerous of these is attachment to women. That means one who cannot control his sense organs can never rise in life. He cannot attain victory. He cannot reach his goal. A woman must be respected. One should remember to never offend them. One must extend as much help to them as possible. One can achieve the goal together with a woman and share equally in the results. But, if due to lack of control on the sense organs, once is devious or wicked, he will not be able to rule or rise in life even if he is a Sadhaka. He will be completely destroyed. Ravana, who was born in the lineage of the great saint Pulastya fell prey to such attachment. Let us learn about this a little.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
