    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    Muktasya laksanam devi tavagre kathitam maya |
    Gurubhaktisthata dhyanam sakalam tava kirtitam ||
    Siva says to Parvati that he has described to her everything about the quality of the liberated, about devotion towards the Guru, about meditation upon the Guru and such allied topics.

    Siva says to his consort, “Devi, I described to you in detail how one should meditate on the Guru and how one should be devoted to the Guru. I described in such great detail that there is perhaps nothing else left to say about devotion towards the Guru, about meditation on the Guru and about worship of the Guru. But, there is always more to say and there are many more topics to talk about. It is not really possible to say that there is nothing else left. But, in the meanwhile, the initiation into the quality of the Guru I have given you is the most wonderful”. When an initiation is given, the greatness and benefits of such initiation should be explained clearly. That is when the recipient will remember well, the initiation received. That is why, they are singing the greatness of Guru Gita in the upcoming slokas.

    Guru gitatiguhyeyam mayasti kathita subha |
    Srigurum cinmayam dhyayan yamaham kalaye sada ||

    Siva says to Parvati that he has told her the most secret Guru Gita, which he himself recites meditating upon the blissful Guru.
    The Supreme Guru, Lord Shiva is always meditating. Siva says to Parvati, “I have now given you that most secret Guru Gita that I always meditate on”

    A Guru’s age doesn’t determine his stature. One who is a realized soul, who understands the longings of the disciple and lovingly fulfills them, is a Guru even if he is young in age. The divine mutual love that binds such Gurus and disciples is extremely sacred. A scripture that extols the greatness of such a Guru is truly venerated. Only a scripture that sings the praises of the Sadguru is venerated. A scripture that doesn’t contain praises of the Sadguru or worship of the Saduguru is not worthy of being called a scripture.

    Guru gitamimam devi suddhatattvam mayoditam |
    Gurum mam dhyayati premna hrdi nityam vibhavaya ||
    Siva says to Parvati that she should meditate upon him with devotion, treating him as Guru and constantly visualizing the Guru Gita and the Principle of Truth he revealed. One should think only of that Principle of Truth and nothing else.

    This Supreme Truth is explained in this Guru Gita. Siva gave this initiation of the Guru Gita, which contains the Principle of Truth, to Parvati Devi. Further, this scripture is called Guru Gita giving it the sound of a feminine name. That tells us that this scripture is a manifestation of the Divine Mother. The word Guru Gita immediately implies the form of Mother Goddess. There is also a tradition of studying in-depth, the Guru Gita during Navaratri. During Navaratri, some people undertake deep study of Sundarakanda on the concluding day, some study Ramayana, some people study the even more secret Bhagavata which contains the same supreme truth that is in the Divine Mother’s Guru Gita.

    Jaya Guru Datta
