    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Sri Guru Datta.

    Sloka:
    Hunkarena na vaktavyam prajnaissisyaih kadacana |
    Guroragre na vaktavyam asatyam ca kadacana ||
    Wise disciples should never frown upon their Guru and never should they utter falsehood.

    Sloka:
    Gurum tvam krtya hunkrtya gurum nirjitya vadatah |
    Aranye nirjale ghore sambhavet brahma raksasah ||
    If the Guru is addressed in the singular number or frowned upon, or argued with the intent to proving oneself better, one will take the birth of a Brahmarakshasa (fierce demon spirit) in a terrible jungle without water.

    This is not an ordinary curse. Lot of people these days wish to be disciples that prove better than the Guru. One may have more knowledge than the Guru, but one must never argue with the Guru. One must not reproach the Guru. If this holds true even for the Guru that gave you education, you can imagine how important this is for the Guru that blesses one with knowledge.

    A lot of people want to show off their closeness with the Guru. Saying, “I am very close to the Guru, I grew up here since I was a child. See how I address him”, they address him in the singular. Saying something like, “Yes, I’ve taken care of it, how many times should I tell you?” may seem okay to us since we’ve always been so close to the Guru, especially when we are considering him a son, or a brother, but one should address the Guru very carefully. Thinking, “I grew up near him, he brought me up, I am like a son to him”, you can’t talk as you please. Sometimes, we address the parents in the singular, “Sleep mother! How many times should tell you?” It’s still okay if we address the parents in the singular, because they are our parents. But, you should not talk to the Guru in that manner.
    A lot of people frown on the Guru, “HMMM…I know! You told me once, it’s okay! I understand if you tell me once!” You should not talk to him like you talk to other people. If he asks you to do something, “HMM…I’ll do it. Do I have a choice? I don’t!” One should never talk like this. When we consider Guru as a father, or a brother or God or a parent or a husband, when we feel that way, we should be very careful how we talk to the Guru. When caught talking like that, you should not deny that feeling. You have to pay for it, just as one that eats salt has to drink water or one that eats grass has to cough.

    That is why they are saying that if the Guru is frowned upon, or argued with the intent to proving oneself better, one will take the birth of a Brahmarakshasa (fierce demon spirit) in a terrible jungle without water. What a curse!

    Jaya Guru Datta.
