    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Avadhoota Swamy described to Yadu what he learned from Suryanarayana Swamy thus, “Sun, without touching the water, turns the water into vapor and passes them to the clouds. When time comes, he showers rains. Similarly, a seeker of Yoga should consume through his senses. He should donate to the needy. Even though the sun appears in various water pots as multiple suns, in reality, there is only one sun. In the same manner, the seeker of Yoga should realize that even though Atman appears as multiple bodies, there is only one Paramatman. He should be an embodiment of knowledge like Sun. He must look after the welfare of those who seek refuge in him. He must give them the alms of knowledge and enable them to perform their duty.

    When one always does his duty like the Sun, the entire universe will cooperate with him. Sun is always doing his duty. The Sun always does his duty, whether it is in the morning, or the afternoon or the evening. He is so useful to people. He remains untainted and untouched by everything. The Sun taught us all these things. With him that constantly does his duty like the Sun and follows his Dharma, the entire universe will cooperate. Remember this very well.

    Next, pigeons. We see a lot of pigeons on the street. There are a lot of pigeons in India. But, some pigeons look very different, we will talk about that later. If great souls say something, they say it out of experience. They don’t just say something randomly. You should never take what is said lightly or dismiss it, but you must put it into action. Great souls give us words of wisdom. There is a good reason behind what they are saying. We should never ignore what is being said. That is when we can get out of difficulties. The journey of life proceeds smoothly. We gain the mental strength to face difficulties.

    If a great soul says, “Being overly friendly is not good. Talking too much is not good” you must stop doing those (being over-friendly or talking too much). However great the person is, he must put these into action, otherwise, he will subject himself to difficulties. They get into such difficulties that they may not be able to rise from them. As an example, Avadhoota Swamy told King Yadu what he learned from pigeons.

    What is this? What can you learn from pigeons? How interesting? Sometimes we ignore the words that come from great souls. We think, “What do they know? They just speak from their experience. Our experience and our difficulties are different. Times are different now. Their experiences were from a long time back. What is the use talking about them now”. But here, the incarnation of the Supreme, the Parabrahman Lord Dattatreya, appearing in the form of an Avadhoota is talking to King Yadu about learning each object, from each substance, from each living being, about the method of learning. Let us look at what Avadhoota Swamy is saying to King Yadu.
    Jaya Guru Datta.
