    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Realizing that the Paramatman, Lord Narayana alone was his savior, Gajendra surrendered his intellect to the Lord and cried out to Him. Lord Narayana, who was moved by the prayer, immediately came to the rescue of Gajendra. Then, Gajendra praised the Lord who is “Anatha-rakshaka” (one who protects those who have no one else) and “Aapadbandhava” (one who comes to the rescue of those in distress) saying “Universal Guru! Salutations to You. You are the Guru to this universe, Universal Guru!”. Lord Narayana was pleased; He immediately released Gajendra from the clutches of the alligator and blessed him with liberation. Just like the Universal Guru Narayana, the Guru too inspires and enables his disciples who are immersed in samsara to do many good deeds. He enables them do charitable deeds, he enables them to do Yajnas and other rituals. He ensures that the the disciple earns good karma and merit and that he is amply blessed by God and is able to rise from the ocean of samsara. The society thus benefits greatly due to the Sadguru.

    Gurur brahma gurur visnuh gururdevo maheswarah |
    Gurureva param brahma tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Guru is Brahma. Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Shiva and the only Absolute. Obeisance to such a Guru.

    This has been stated earlier. Still, since you will keep forgetting, I am repeating. Since I am repeating it over and over and over and over, you should realize how important this is. The next 3 slokas are like the heart of Guru Gita. Listen carefully.

    Akhanda mandalakaram vyaptam yena caracaram |
    Tatpadam darsitam yena tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Tat + Tvam + Asi means You are That. Tat = that, which is the indivisible cosmic form, pervading the animate and the inanimate as the Parabrahman. Obeisance to the Sadguru who has enabled me to perceive that.
