    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Sloka:
    Sampasyecchri gurum santam paramatma swarupinam |
    Sthavare jangame caiva sarvatra jagatitale ||
    Among all the animate and inanimate things on earth, one should see only Guru who is tranquil and God incarnate.

    There are many ways to meditate. The next sloka initiates us into the path for meditation that we should follow.

    Sloka:
    Sri gurum sachchidanandam bhavatitam vibhavya ca |
    Tannidarsita margena dhyana magno bhavet sudhih ||
    A wise man should first of all chant the name of the blissful Sadguru who is beyond the intellect and then should immerse in meditation as taught by him.

    “Tannidarsia margena” – one should follow the path of meditation shown by the Guru. Guru is beyond the intellect, so we should strive to achieve the state beyond the intellect. While we are on this path, a few thoughts initially come to mind. Upon completion of one task, we should look for the next command from the Guru. You should not think that because you completed the task given by Sadguru, you can now rest. Even the rest should be an intermittent command in between before you move on to the next task, but you should never think you are done. This body is not ours. We surrendered everything to him. We are in the Sadguru. After one command, we should look for the next. We should not think that we are done with the tasks. You should look for the next command. As you keep carrying out these commands, the state beyond the intellect will strengthen. As you constantly carry out the commands, your devotion will become firm. You will realize that, that is the path of knowledge ordained by the Guru.

    In the past slokas, we were initiated into the path of meditating on the Guru. In that sloka, they praised the Guru as the form of the Absolute, “Brahmananda parama sukhadam”. In subsequent slokas, “Hrdambuje karnika madhya samsthe, simhasane samsthita divyamurtim, simhasane samsthita divyamurtim, svetambaram sveta vilepa puspam” they taught us to meditate on the Guru who has form and attributes.

    Now, in the path of pure knowledge or Jnana Yoga, we are being taught to logically deduce and understand the way to meditate on the Guru.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
