    Pujya Sri Swamiji, After first kaakada haarati to ViswaRoopa Datta,
    Ganagapura (Feb 13, 2011):
    Emperor Kartaveeryarjuna served Lord Dattatreya for one thousand years very faithfully. Night and day he chanted this powerful mantra, Jaya Guru Datta Sri Guru Datta. He earned many wondrous boons from Datta. Finally who gave moksha to Kartaveeryarjuna? It was Datta. But he appeared in another form to punish him first and then to give liberation after bestowing jnana. He came in the form of Parashurama, another divine incarnation. This was because Kartaveeryarjuna realized his mistake and prayed to Datta to punish him first and then to give him spiritual knowledge. When we all make mistakes either knowingly or unknowingly with less or more ego, we must acknowledge our mistakes. We must never deny our mistakes. We must never say that we did not commit the errors. We must learn from Kartaveeryarjuna to pray for punishment first and then for jnana, spiritual instruction. If we pray that our mistakes should be ignored, but still ask for spiritual instruction, then we will have trouble later. We would have to be born again to pay for our sins. Or the other option would be that the spiritual instruction would come in the form of continuous punishment.
    Kartaveeryarjuna was an expert at asking for boons. He was so thorough in asking for so many things. He is a boon guru. After he received all the boons he also prayed to Datta, “Let no one else but me have the power to ask from you for boons the way I asked for them”. Pingala Naga and other disciples were present when this occurred. They asked, “Why is he asking like this Swami?” Datta explained that Kartaveeryarjuna has many devotees who are not mature enough to deal with such boons and hence he is trying to protect them. Datta asked Kartaveeryarjuna, “Who are your devotees?” Kartaveeryarjuna realized his mistake. He understood that he himself was still only a devotee of Datta. The king who was a treasure house of boons now said that he did not want any more boons. Datta explained to King Kartaveeryarjuna and to the other disciples, “After experience and jnana Kartaveeryarjuna is saying this. But with no experience at all with Datta, Vishnu Datta spoke the same words. When asked by Datta to express any wish, Vishnu Datta said he had no desires at all. When Datta insisted, he went home to ask his home minister, his wife to name a desire. He was so pure and innocent.” Pingala Naga and Kartaveeryarjuna begged Datta to give them the type of devotion that Vishnu Datta had. You should not go crying to Datta with your troubles, begging for boons. You should not even tell him that you are fed up with life and want to simply merge into him. You should be determined and brave to face your experiences, good or bad. This birth is a gift. It is not meant to escape from or to commit suicide. Just like night and day, joy and sorrow come and go. We have not endowed this body of ours with life. We have no right to take it away. We are puppets. But still, we remain firm and face all our troubles, placing complete faith in Datta. We should emerge victorious.
