    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    There is a difference in contentment between the older days and these days. There were not many amenities back in the day, but everybody lived comfortably and happily. They were content with what they had and spent their life happily. Moreover, they had a lifespan of 120 years. If you go further back, people had a lifespan of 300 years; if you go even further back, they had a life span of 600 years. Like that, people lived a life of contentment. The kept everything within limits. They lived a life of discipline. Today, we have many modern comforts within reach. Science has also progressed greatly. Yet, we are lacking when it comes to satisfaction.

    Back in the day, were people educated? So, were they not intelligent? They were great people, they were intelligent, remember. Similarly, people today are also intelligent, but they don’t know the secret of life. Even after being so intelligent, they don’t know the secret. That is, they still don’t know the secret of living life. People back in the day learned well, the secret of life. Those who know the secret of life understand that there is no point in building a mansion of desires. Sometimes, desire takes away life, it lands us in trouble. Due to desires, we will have to live a life of difficulty and distress.

    Just as one can understand that a beautiful mansion made of mirrors cannot stand in the sky, one should understand that there is no use in a beautiful and impossible desire. Avadhoota Swamy is teaching the seeker to break free from desires. With intelligence, one should understand the nature of desires. One should examine whether desires can be fulfilled or not. One should have a sound sense of discrimination. The ones that are possible and noble can be implemented. Then, there is safety and welfare. The desire will be fulfilled even without necessarily examining it.

    The fisherman throws a hook to capture fish. The fisherman has a bait on the hook. The fish, desiring the bait, gets caught in the hook. The big lake has a variety of food, yet the fish, out of greed, goes after the bait knowing fully well that it would get caught. Further, the bait is a dead worm, it’s not even tasty. The fish, trying to get the bait, gets caught in the hook. They even lose their life in this attempt. The seeker should not succumb to desires like a fish. If he runs after useless desires, he will kill himself. In ignorance, the being should not become a slave to the sense organ of tongue and bring danger to himself.
