    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    We were discussing that Siva and Parvati were extremely pleased with Ganapathy’s intellect, reasoning and presence of mind. Secondly, they commended his deep-rooted faith in them as Gurus. Because Ganapathy had strong faith in his Guru, Kumara Swamy encountered Ganapathy returning from every sacred place he was entering. One should have faith in Guru like Ganapathy Swamy did. Ganapathy had complete faith in his parents as Guru. Such complete faith is what leads to fulfillment of wishes. This is what leads to receiving Guru’s grace fully. This is what leads to victory in every task.

    Bhavaranya pravistasya dingmoha bhranta cetasah |
    Yena sandaristah panthah tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Obeisance to Sadguru who shows the good path in the jungle of samsara, where I have been wandering aimlessly.

    Tapatrayagni taptanam srantanam praninamume |
    Gurureva paraganga tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Guru is the most sacred water or Ganga for the living beings who are frayed and exhausted in the fire of anxieties. Obeisance to such a Guru.

    Hetave sarva jagatam samsararnava setave |
    Prabhave sarva vidyanam sambhave gurave namah ||

    Obeisance to Sadguru who is the cause of all the worlds, who serves as a bridge to cross the ocean of Samsara, who is the Lord of all branches of knowledge, and who is the source of bliss and happiness.

    Here, “Shambhu” refers to the origin of happiness. Happiness here refers to eternal happiness, not material happiness. Let’s recall the sloka again:

    Dhyanamulam guror murtih puja mulam guroh padam, mantra mulam gurorvakyam moksham mulam guroh krpa.

    Dhyanamulam guror murtih puja mulam guroh padam |
    Mantra mulam gurorvakyam moksham mulam guroh krpa ||

    One cannot chant this sloka enough number of times. One cannot sing this sloka in enough number of ways. You heard this in two different ways.

    The image of Guru is the foundation for meditation. The feet of Guru form the foundation for worship. The word of Guru is the foundation for mantra. The grace of Guru alone is the foundation for redemption.

    Haranam bhavararogasya taranam klesa varidheh |
    Bharanam sarvalokasya saranam carnam guroh ||

    The foot of the Guru which roots out the disease of samsara and rebirths, which helps ferry me across the ocean of sorrow, and that which holds all the worlds, is my refuge.

    While concluding this sloka, they are making a special mention of the power of Guru’s curse and Guru’s blessings.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
