    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Datta.

    We discussed that these were detachments that came coupled with attachments. Or, they can be called attachments that came coupled with detachments. To each his own – the one who built a temple, the donor, some who are in fear of not receiving ancestral rites annually and so on. Owing to this fear, some of these people wear a lot of gold jewelry and announce that people that perform the funeral rites will be given that jewelry. They even provide this in writing. Is this called detachment? Tell me. Is it called sacrifice? Is it called attachment? This is also attachment coupled with detachment.

    Then again, there is that sinful attachment, just pure attachment. Due to this, we covet everything we see. This is sinful attachment, “It would be nice to have this”, “Oh, this would be very nice to have”. One desires to have the newer item even though he just bought a new item.

    Some people don’t want to give anything to anyone under any circumstance. That attachment engulfs them. They don’t sacrifice anything for anyone. Doesn’t matter if it rots and festers, they will not give it away. This is called sinful attachment. This attachment is a kind of passion. This is caused by dualities that is also otherwise known as the ocean of samsara. It is being said here that only the feet of the Guru have the power to rid you of all these dualities, all sorrows and all attachments to ferry you across the ocean of samsara.

    Thus, after defining who a Guru is, they are talking about what one needs to do to cross the ocean of samsara once he takes refuge in a Guru.

    Dehi brahma bhavedyasmat tadidanim prakasaye
    sarva papa visuddhatama sri guroh pada sevanat

    When one falls upon the feet of the Guru, and serves him, his sins will be washed off and his mind gets purified. Then he becomes a part of the godhead.

    So, the panacea is service at the feet of the Guru.

    The Lord is saying here that he will advise on what needs to be done for the soul that takes on a body to attain godhead. This body needs to be an outstanding chariot. We need this body. You should not just grow your body, but you should make it an outstanding chariot. This body should become a temple . The Lord is revealing the secret one needs to know for the soul to attain liberation.

    Let’s recall a short story. In Mahabharata, the fifth Veda, Ganga was born to fulfill a greater purpose. Her son, Bheeshma was also born to fulfil a greater purpose. Let’s see what happens next. Jaya Datta
