    Sri Guru Datta.

    We discussed that God feels great joy when children born of Him, who had forgotten Him and had become distanced from Him, come back to unite with Him. We also discussed that to have us merge back in Him, God personally comes for us, sends many great souls for us and puts in many great efforts for us.


    Rasam brahma pibedyasca trpto yah paramatmani |

    Indram ca manuterankam nrpanam tatra ka katha ||

    One who tastes the nectar of Brahman and dwells in contentment of the Absolute, does not even care for Indra, let alone for ordinary kings.


    Desah puto janah putastadrso yatra tisthati |

    Tatkataksotha samsargah parasmai sreyasepyalam ||

    The country in which such a practicant lives becomes sacred. The people in that country become purified. The grace and association of such great souls bestows the choicest and ultimate salvation

    Places where great souls meet, where great souls meditate, where great souls attain vision of the Absolute, where great souls joyfully merge with God attain salvation. In fact, divine incarnations bestow salvation on that very place, that town, that country, that world.

    Some people attain that state quickly, some take longer. Why? You should be careful. Penance and spiritual practice feel good on the first day, “Aah, feels so good, it’ll be nice if I could also become a hermit”. We feel good seeing those that attained salvation or those that have done spiritual practice or those that have gained a few powers. We want to emulate them. Is it enough to dress and look like them? If you assume you’ve accomplished some powers, will they actually work? They don’t. That is why, some people attain spiritual realization quickly, some others take longer. Why is this so? They are describing the reason in the next sloka:


    Dehi brahma bhavedevam prasadat dhyanato guroh |

    Naranam ca phala praptau bhaktireva hi karanam ||

    As a result of meditating this way, man obtains the Guru’s grace and becomes the Absolute. The result will be proportionate to devotion. The speed of such attainment is also proportional to devotion. Next, they are taking this scripture towards its completion.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta.
