    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    We discussed that we experience happiness and sorrow for no reason. We will talk about what needs to be done once we understand the reason for these sudden emotions. We also talked about what these sudden emotions are caused due to. Here, there was another question, let’s recall that too. Why couldn’t God give us knowledge of our past samskaras? Why didn’t he give us clarity on our samskaras? Why couldn’t he have given us the ability to recall a past birth, why couldn’t he give us memories of past births? That is not possible.

    God kept us ignorant about our past births out of compassion for us. If we had knowledge of past births, we would have unbearable sorrow, realizing that the pigs, dogs and donkeys on the street were our relatives from a past birth. Can we bear that sorrow? A dog alone can recall its past birth when it sits in a pit filled with ash. It is interesting. But, it also forgets right away. So, it’s clear to us that we are not able to find visible reasons for the happiness and sorrows brought about by our past samskaras. We are unable to pinpoint visible reasons. We need to turn inward to determine the source of such happiness and sorrow. Then, you can see that the bliss and light are within you. You will realize that, in reality, you are that bliss and light. You are that inner light. That is his (the Guru’s) light. That light is bliss. The bliss from that light is manifesting as your intelligence, and your happiness. Similarly, the veil of illusion in you in causing sorrow. Guru alone can bless you with this knowledge. Obeisance to such a Guru.

    Guru is giving you the knowledge that will help you get rid of the sorrows yourself. By clearly pointing out to the reasons, by showing you the dangers from it, your Guru is giving you the strength to get rid of these feelings at the source. In the 50th sloka, they refer to “Daivatam”. That means, the Guru sows thoughts in your mind. This is stated formally in the scriptures.

    If you need to clean something thoroughly, you need to use hot water or soap water or some strong cleaning agent to extract the dirt. If you think you don’t want to inflict any hurt on that item because it’s very valuable, it’s expensive, it’s a rare piece of silk, it should not be treated harshly, or that it would rip if put in the washing machine or that the color would run if you used soap on it, or that the threads would come loose if you washed it, what do you want to do with it? How do you extract that dirt? Will you prostrate to it and kiss it and do circumambulations and and pray saying “Oh dirt, please go away”? Will it go away? At least, it does not work that way in my town.

    That is why you put soap, wash it, cause it some hurt to extract dirt. Let that be.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
