    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    We discussed that some people are never satisfied with the wealth they accumulate. Their goal is to just keep earning. They accumulate wealth equivalent to Mount Meru (enormous mountain considered the abode of many Gods). They don’t even know what to do with all the money they saved. Finally, the money falls into the hands of the government or the thieves.

    We also discussed that some people adopt a child and hand over all the wealth to him. When that adopted son wastes all their wealth, all they can do is grieve over it. But since it is God that gave you all this wealth, how wonderful would it be if you adopted that God. If we spend the money on meditating on God, on spiritual resolutions, on spiritual programs for the society, that would be equivalent to giving money to God, because we are considering God as our own child. There is so much joy when we are able to, in turn, give back to God what he gave us. Always remember that whatever you offer to God or to Guru is like a bank deposit. Offering to the Guru or to God is like savings in a bank account. Even if you don’t enjoy the interest from this account, it’ll go to your children, or to your near and dear relatives who need it. But, we do not feel like giving any money.

    We should remember that even for us to have the mindset to donate to worthy causes, we need merit from our previous births. If we don’t have merit from previous births, we can’t even think of donating. If we have merit from previous births, our mind gets absorbed in the Guru. If the mind is not absorbed in the Guru, there is no use of such wealth. If your mind is not absorbed in the feet of the Guru, if you are unable to meditate on the Guru, if you don’t serve the Guru, if you don’t grasp the Guru Principle, if you are unable to offer to the Guru’s feet the fruits of the actions undertaken per the Guru’s command, if you don’t receive the Guru’s initiation, your beauty, your wealth and your fame are of no use. Not only are they of no use, but remember that the pride from your beauty, the pride from your wealth, the pride from your knowledge etc will get to your head. Such a person will be consigned to the nether worlds just like King Bali was. Knowledge has value only when there’s humility. Money has value only when there’s sacrifice. When service does not involve physical labor, beauty has no value, just as beautiful flowers without aroma have no value for worship. What’s the use of a money lender who has no generosity. There’s no redemption for that money.

    Some trees grow magnificently. But, you cannot even fell and use as firewood, they emit too much smoke, cause burning sensation in the eyes and are completely worthless. They don’t even burn well. What is the use of such a big tree? Only when the mind is completely absorbed in service to the Guru, when the mind is absorbed in the Guru, all these will bear fruit, they will definitely bear fruit. You should use whatever you earn towards service to the Guru. Your mind should be absorbed in the Guru Principle. Only then will it bear fruit.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
