    Sri Guru Gita –1st May, 2014 – a summary – Jaya Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Excessive speech with Guru must be avoided. You should not praise other gurus in His presence. Unless Guru himself brings up the topic, do not speak about other gurus in His presence.

    Do not show your back to Guru. Many people walk in front of Guru showing him their backs. It should be avoided. One should walk to a side or at a little distance away from Guru, behind the Guru.

    Those who follow the above rules will earn the grace of Guru. Guru’s compassion effortlessly showers upon them. Here are benefits that are received from Guru.

    Sloka: munibhyah …
    Parvati, all the way from the poison of venomous snakes, to the curses of sages and gods, Guru protects his disciples. He even protects them from the sting of death.
    Sloka: nityam brahma …

    Only he, who identifies with Brahman who is eternal, and formless, is Sadguru. As one lamp lights another, Guru passes on to the disciple whatever the disciple deserves. When a lamp lights another lamp, it gives all the light that it has, to the new lamp. It does not withhold any light back for itself. The new lamp that is lit gets endowed with as much light as the lamp that has lit it. It is Guru’s wish that the disciple should have the same level of experience and enlightenment as He. He does not keep any secrets. He discloses to the disciple everything that He knows.

    Many spiritual powers are there. The details are explained here as to what should be prayed for, and what will be granted. Too much thinking about what should be asked for, is useless. We must learn about what we should ask for. We do not know what we require, but He knows what is required for us, and also when it should be given. Therefore, we should think before asking for boons or favors. Only the strength to endure difficulties may be prayed for. Beyond that, there is nothing else to pray for. Never pray for anything in excess. Guru passes on all his powers to a deserving disciple. Hence, you should become a worthy disciple. You have a wick. You should soak it in the oil called spiritual practice and keep it ready. Do not distress yourself with regret that you have not accomplished anything as yet.

    Sri Guru Datta
