    Sri Guru Gita episode 28 – English summary – Jaya Guru Datta (refrain: Listen to Sri Guru Gita, Sachchidananda Sadgurudeva’s discourse on Sri Guru Gita) Note: Observe the parrot/parrots from Shuka Vana. Find out of the species and make a note. Visit for photos of parrots and information on the different species. It was a parrot which first listened to the secret knowledge about Guru while Siva was explaining it to Parvati. Later Sage Suka (with a parrot’s head) gave this knowledge to his father Veda Vyasa. It was revealed to humanity by Sage Vyasa through Srimad Bhagavatam and the Skanda Purana.
    Guru Datta. We have learned that the technique of Ajapa Japa links the breath which is in the form of two swans, continuously with the two syllables Gu and Ru, thus absorbing the Guru mantra into the heart. In the individual who practices this without a break, in addition to the ordinary heart, the yoga heart that is located on the right side also gets cleansed. To the one who contemplates on Guru as the manifestation of the two syllables of Gu and Ru following the Ajapa Japa method, the Guru out of his own accord reveals himself. Such meditation is the best kind.
    How does Guru manifest himself? Does he appear in the form of a human being or a celestial being? Does he appear with a beard, or with a shaven head?
    All the descriptive phrases used in the above verse explain Guru’s supreme status. Guru appears as the Supreme Master. The Universe consists of names and forms. Guru is the cause of the Universe. The Universe emerges out of Guru. Hence, the entire Creation is His form. The substance of ornaments such as bracelets, necklaces and rings made of gold is essentially nothing but gold. The pieces of jewelry are all different forms of gold. Similarly, the countless forms that Guru possesses are all essentially the same substance as he.
    Some people keep a small picture of their guru and refer to it as their Guru. It is not right. All forms are Guru’s forms. That conviction must be followed and practiced. It is not enough if it is verbally expressed constantly. The principle must be kept in mind all the time. For normal worldly interaction a photo may be used as a reference.
    We must observe one significant fact. We do not always enjoy complete freedom. We do not even have the freedom to die at will. It is not in our control. Why go that far? We have no control over our own nature or Nature. For that matter, we do not have control over our mind. The mind insists on dwelling on a thought even if we will against it. Where do we have the freedom to control the mind? It acts as it wishes, against our commands. Whatever we wish to forget, keeps coming back into the mind, including even in dreams. The mind does more and more of what we do not wish for it to do.
    But, Guru is not like that. He is absolutely free. He is completely in control of his mind. He has the option of letting his mind function freely, or otherwise. We lack that ability. He can perfectly control himself. Any life he can control. He can bind it or free it as he chooses. Not just that. He keeps this entire Creation under his control. How is it possible? It is possible because Guru is the Universe. We have already described him as the cause, and the form of this endless Creation, and that his form is Bliss. He permeates the entire Universe. He is not limited to one picture or one substance. One should keep contemplating on the concept that Guru is in all forms, all substances, all photographs, and all images. Guru must never be restricted to just one image or one form. Guru is all-pervasive. He can manifest in any form and at the same time he can remain without appearing in any form. Jaya Guru Datta
