    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Lord Brahma saw hundreds of thousands of forms of Lord Krishna in place of the cows, calves and cowherds. All forms were His. Lord Brahma realized upon seeing those forms that Lord Krishna was Parabrahman, that Lord Krishna was the Jagadguru (the Guru to all the universe).
    Subsequently, Lord Krishna withdrew his spell and became the cowherd he was again. Once Lord Krishna turned into a cowherd, Lord Brahma had the real vision of Sri Krishna. Lord Brahma came down to earth, did circumambulation to little Krishna three times, prayed to him and after getting his permission, left for his abode. Thus, Lord Brahma who was the master of all scriptures, the form of the Vedas Himself, the father to this universe, the creator and Guru taught the world that Sri Krishna was Parabrahman.

    To benefit the disciple, the Guru goes through many difficulties and losses and tolerates insults. Lord Krishna who appeared as Guru also faced a lot of difficulties. The Guru purifies the disciple through appropriate means and helps him have a vision of the Parabrahman. We should understand that Lord Shiva is educating us through this sloka about such great benefits the world receives due to the Sadguru.

    Dehe jivatvam apannam caitanyam niskalam param |
    Tvam padam darsitam yena tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Obeisance to Sadguru who is omnipresent and who has entered into this body in the form of the other worldly spirit of energy, as Shiva, and who has enabled me to see that spirit embedded in TVAM (you)

    Akhandam paramartham sadaikyam ca tvam tadossubham |
    Asina darsitam yena tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    Obeisance to Sadguru who enables me to see through the term ASI (You Are) which reveals the ultimate goal by explaining that TVAM (you) and TAT (that) are not separate but stand for the indivisible quality of the Absolute.

    If we analyze the meaning of the previous 3 slokas, we see that TAT is indivisible, that TVAM is small, that TVAM merges into TAT and becomes one. This is a very great principle. The essence of all scriptures is in this. To help us understand this easily, let’s look at an example.

    Say, there are two people Venkayya and Subayya. There is a difference in their names, but they are both human beings. Let’s assume one’s from Vijaywada and the other’s from Mysore. Two different towns, but both on earth. One speaks gently, the other speaks tough. But, they both speak with their tongue.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
