    Appaji this dark feathered bird seems much more peaceful than that black and red bird that was on Your chair a few episodes ago. That black and red bird made me a little bit nervous… he seemed agitated or overly excited… i would be excited if i was a bird on Your chair too but i’d try to control myself a little bit better. i’m probably reading too much into it though… JGD

    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta
    We discussed that Guru Vishwamitra ordered Rama to slay the demoness Tataka to protect the cattle, the learned and the rest of the people. At that time, he imparted knowledge of many weapons including Brahma Astram (astram = weapon), Pashupata Astram etc. Later, Sri Rama protected Sage Vishwamitra’s yagna by teaching the demons Mareecha and Subahu a fitting lesson. Pleased with this, Guru Vishwamitra wanted to bless Sri Rama with Laksmi devi. He purified them by reciting the story of Ganga Devi. He helped Ahalya get relief from her curse. The Guru’s blessings didn’t stop there. Guru Vishwamitra took them to the kingdom of Mithila. There, with the permission of Guru Vishwamitra, Rama broke the powerful bow of Lord Shiva and married Sita Devi.

    Who is Sita? She is Lakshmi Devi manifested in a physical form. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu. He got Sri Rama married to Sita Devi. That was Guru Vishwamitra’s will.

    Like that, every step of the way, Guru Vishwamitra immensely blessed Rama who was an outstanding disciple. He poured all his knowledge into Rama. The conduct of the disciple is very important. If the disciple observes all his duties like Sri Rama did, the Sadgurus bless generously every step of the way like Guru Vishwamitra did, pouring all their knowledge in to the disciples. What we discussed in the previous sloka is explained even better in this sloka.

    Rudha vidya jaganmaya dehesti dhvanta rupini
    tadwarakah prakasasca guru sabdena kathyate

    That means, illusion took on the form of this world. She (illusion) herself is the ignorance and personification of TAMAS. That ignorance is embedded strongly in the body of every being.

    The light that can dispel that ignorance is called Guru. Once the divine light of the Guru falls on a being, the darkness of ignorance vanishes. Illusion and ignorance mean the same. It refers to the darkness that envelops us.

    The difference is only in the expanse each refers to, but illusion and ignorance are the same. The further we want to get away from it, the stronger and closer it gets. It is the nature of illusion. We may wonder why the darkness of illusion increases with our spiritual pursuit. There’s only one reason for this. You are not really starting your spiritual life. You are just thinking about it, but procrastinating. You are putting it off to tomorrow. We just keep thinking “I will fast starting tomorrow”, “I will give up this addiction starting tomorrow”, “I will set myself right starting tomorrow” but not acting on it. “I will read Bhagavatam starting tomorrow. Watch out, how disciplined I’m going to be”. But, we never start. We always postpone to tomorrow.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
