    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Guru Datta.
    We were talking about a story from Mahabharata, which is the fifth Veda. We said that Ganga was born to fulfill a greater purpose. Ganga’s son Bheeshma was also born to fulfill a greater purpose. Bheeshma’s story is wonderful. He was a great Yogi. He accepted joy and sorrow and heat and cold with equanimity of mind. He crossed the ocean of samsara and attained liberation while still alive. Eventually, he attained godhead before he left his mortal body. Let’s learn a little about the greatness of Ganga’s son and the greatness of Mother Ganga.

    Bheeshma’s mother was his first Guru. Her blessings were such that Bheeshma had no equal. His fame spread everywhere. He acquired such powers and fame. All knowledge bore fruit in him. There were no obstacles to his bravery. He was a greatly realized soul. His mother’s grace was the key reason for such immense blessings.

    By merely remembering Ganga, all sins and illusions get washed away.

    “Ganga gangeti yo bhruyaat, yo janaaanaam shatairapi.
    Mucyate sarva paapebhyo Vishnu lokam sahacyati”

    By remembering Ganga, one gets purified instantly regardless of how far away they are. They even attain Vishnu Loka. Such a great Ganga was earlier born to a couple called Mareechi and Kala. Her name in that life was Poornima. Meditation was her life, meditation was her food. Meditation was everything to her, it was her greatest spiritual wealth. She had such great power. That is why, through Brahma’s boon, she became capable of purifying the world. Appearing at the feet of Trivikrama, she became Tripatha Gaamini. Tripatha Gaamini indicates that she flowed in the three worlds – heavens, earth and paatala (the lower worlds). She purifies and uplifts the people living in these three worlds. That is why the name Tripathaga was befitting.

    Such a great Ganga Mata made a great resolve to uphold Dharma in the world and to prevent people from swerving from Dharma. She resolved to increase Dharma in people. Let’s see what she does.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
