Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:
Jaya Guru Datta
Virajam paramakasam dhruvamanandamavyayam |
Agocharam tatha gamyam nama rupa vivarjitam |
Tadaham brahma kaivalyam iti bodhah prajayate ||
Meditating on the Guru gives you the knowledge that you are the non-dual Absolute which is pure, eternal, blissful, indestructible, invisible, of the form of higher sky (Paramakasam), inscrutable and beyond name and form”.
“Paramakasam” indicates one who pervades Anda, Pinda and Brahamanda. (In other words, pervades everything from the smallest unit of matter to the infinite cosmos). By describing the benefits, Siva is encouraging us to meditate. That is Siva’s nature. That is why, Guru is worshiped as Siva. On the other hand, Brahma would analyze how many lives we’ve been mediating from, how much meditation we’ve done so far etc. Vishnu will ask us to keep meditating. Neither Brahma nor Vishnu will deviate from what they usually say.
Next, they are describing how we go from meditating on the Guru principle to the state of self-realization.
Yatha nija svabhavena keyura katakadayah |
Suvarnatvena tishthanti tathaham brahma sasvatam ||
I am the eternal Absolute though appearing to be confined to be a limited form, just as the different ornaments like ankles, bracelets, etc., are of different shapes, though all of them are made of the same gold.
Siva is telling us what the result of such mediation is.
Evam dhyayan param brahma sthatavyam yatra kutracit |
Kito bhrnga iva dhyanat brahmaiva bhavati swayam ||
One must meditate on the Absolute wherever he is. As he goes on doing that, the practicant himself becomes Brahman just as the insect turns into the carpenter bee.
The carpenter bee picks up a worm and places it in a small pit made of mud. Every day, the bee goes to the pit and stings the worm. The worm is immersed in thinking about the bee, worried that it would get stung again. As it continues to think about the bee, it gets transformed slowly into a carpenter bee. That is how we should be. Only when we meditate on the Guru will we realize the form of the Guru, the Guru principle and the power of the Guru.
Jaya Guru Datta.
