    Sri Guru Gita episode 39 – English summary the way I understood it, translated to the best of my limited ability – Jaya Guru Datta (refrain: Listen to Sri Guru Gita, Sachchidananda Sadgurudeva’s discourse on Sri Guru Gita)
    Note: Observe the parrot/parrots from Shuka Vana. Recognize the species and make a note. Visit sgsbirds.com for photos of parrots and information on the different species. It was a parrot which first listened to the secret knowledge about Guru while Siva was explaining it to Parvati. Later Sage Suka (with a parrot’s head) gave this knowledge to his father Veda Vyasa. It was revealed to humanity by Sage Vyasa through Srimad Bhagavatam and the Skanda Purana.
    We have learned that Mother Goddess is asking for that which excels everything else in greatness and power. The question arises whether energy is of different types. The channels through which energy travels may have varying capacities, but are there greater and lesser energies? No. Energy is all the same. That is the absolute truth.
    When we observe the goings on in the world, it is noticed that all efforts using energy are put in to either gain selfish ends or to cause pain to others. When mild (Satvic) food is consumed, the behavior is mild. For example, an elephant eats mild food and its actions are gentle. Its energy may be channeled to perform actions that are gentle. Observe a tiger. Its food is obtained through cruel means and what it eats is harsh. Therefore, we see that its energy is useful only to cause harm to other creatures. Of these two, neither is capable of sharing its energy with the other.
    In this world such is the nature of energy of all beings, including that of the gods. Whenever energy is shared with others, it happens only with a selfish motive. Energy is expended to get personal requirements satisfied. Any use of energy that is contaminated by the touch of selfishness has to be considered impure.
    Only Sadguru’s energy is spent with total unselfishness and total unblemished compassion. Hence, it should be recognized as the highest type of energy. Mother Goddess has asked in the first part of the verse to grant her that type of pristine energy.
    In the second half of the verse, she is more specifically asking to be taught the principle of Guru.
    She is praying for initiation into the means for attaining the highest and the purest form of energy. She is requesting to be taught the principle of Guru. Mother Goddess is also describing the goal that she aims to achieve by the grace of Sadguru.
    Verse: Kena ..
    How does Man, who has occupied a human body become one with God? He has to become saturated with divinity. But how is it possible? He may become absorbed into death, but how does he become merged with God?
    Let us see how it can be achieved.
    Jaya Guru Datta
