    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:
    Sri Ganesaya Namaha
    Sri Saraswatyai Namaha
    Sri Pada Vallabha Narasimha Saraswati
    Sri Guru Dattatreyaya Namaha
    Gukarassyad gunatito rupatito rukarah |
    Guna rupa vihinatvat gururuityabhidiyate ||
    GU stands for one who is beyond the three Gunas or qualities. RU stands for the one who is beyond Rupa or form. Guru is the personification of the Absolute without attributes and form. We should inculcate the feeling that all forms belong to the Guru. You should realize that the Guru is beyond all form, beyond all qualities and beyond time.
    Gukarah prathamo varno mayadi gunabhasakah |
    Rukarosti param brahma maya bhranti vimocakah ||
    The first syllable GU belongs to the three Gunas which are the cause of illusion. The second syllable RU stands for the Parabrahman that destroys the delusion caused by illusion.
    Evam gurupadam srestham devanamapi durlabham |
    Haha huhu ganaiscaiva gandharvairapi pujitam ||

    Dhruvam tesam ca sarvesam nasti tatvam guroh param |
    Guroraradhanam karyam swajivatvam nivedayet ||
    The term GURU is of utmost importance. The term is so important that it should be used only in specific situations. We keep using the word Guru loosely. It is said that children should not be given the name “Guru”. It’s okay to join the word Guru with another word while christening the baby, but the name “Guru” alone should not be used. These days, “Guru” has become a generic term we use to flag down someone in bus stations, train stations or restaurants. I have pointed out many times that the term “Guru” is a very holy mantra. It is “Gunatitam” – beyond all qualities. It is “Mayatitam” – beyond all form. This is beyond the comprehension of even Gods.
    The songsters of heaven such as Haha, Huhu and Gandharvas (heavenly beings) respect this term the most; for there is no sublime concept even for them other than this.

    Hence, the Guru must be worshiped.
    While worshiping the Guru one has to offer one’s life which means all that he possesses as a living being. In the same way, the feeling “I am the being” should be sacrificed and one should dwell in the state of eternal consciousness in the form of pure bliss
    This is what is called a total offering.
