    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta. We discussed that the sages, unable to tolerate Nemi’s heinous acts, came together and decided to sever both his legs. But, not only did he escape death, a lot of demons were born out of his severed legs. This created more work for the sages. The sages had to kill all the demons. They thought about what happened and decided this time to sever Nemi’s arms. From the arms were born divine beings. The sages handed over the kingdom to these beings who took good care of the kingdom.

    But Nemi would neither live nor die. The sages thought some more. They gave him poison and cut him into pieces. But, he still wouldn’t die. Each piece of this severed body would eventually join together. Due to his mother’s grace, he continued to live. Even after being given poison and being cut into pieces, he lived. Each severed piece was a living being. Each piece seemed to have life. Nemi experienced hell on earth. We think he survived, he lived, but every piece was experiencing hell. Eventually, one day, Lord Datta came to him, initiated him into worship of Guru and uplifted him. All the divine beings shouted slogans, “Datta! Jaya Guru Datta! Datta!”. Although Nemi was a great sinner, he achieved higher worlds by the grace of Guru.

    You should not construe whatever happened in the meanwhile as the outcome of Guru’s anger. It was the compassion of the Guru. That is what is called Kshalana (cleansing). The Guru is always in bliss. That is why the previous sloka said “Prasannam” (bliss). The Guru is the epitome of bliss, the source of bliss, embodiment of knowledge. To such a Sadguru, you should always offer obeisance. Next is another mantra to meditate on the Guru.

    Sloka:
    Nityam suddham nirabhasam nirakaram niranjanam |
    Nityabodha cidanandam gurum brahma namamyaham ||
    Obeisance to Guru who is eternal, pure, formless, tranquil, embodiment of truth and knowledge, who is always teaching, who is embodiment of universal consciousness and bliss and an embodiment of the Absolute.

    Here, “Nityabodha” shows that he is always teaching. That means, if you meditate on him in silence when you face difficulties, you will hear his voice. There is no doubt whatsoever.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
