    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Kasiksetram nivasasca jahnavi caranodakam |
    Gurur visvevarah saksat tarakam brahma niscitam ||

    The very dwelling of the Guru is the sacred Kashi (Benaras). His ablutions are the holy waters of the Ganges. Lord Visweshwara who uplifts us from the world of life is Guru himself. This is certain.

    When one says he’s going to Kashi, it means he’s going to the Guru. Here, we can find another special meaning to “brahma niscitam”. It means that Lord Siva is making a divine promise that Guru is verily the Taraka Mantra (“Sri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama”).

    In the previous verse, there was a reference to Kashi. Now, to satisfy the devotees of Lord Vishnu, they are praising the Guru and referring to Gaya to remind them that Guru is the manifestation of the Trinity and is beyond all differences.

    Guru padankitam yatra gaya sadhoksajodbhava |
    Tirtha rajah prayago sau guru murtyai namonamah ||

    Where the imprints of Guru’s feet exist, that itself is the holy place of Gaya pertaining to Lord Vishnu. That itself is the greatest of holy places, Prayag. Obeisance to such a Guru

    Gurumurtim smarennityam gurornama sada japet |
    Gurorajnam prakurvita guroranyam na bhavayet ||

    The image of the Guru should always be kept in mind and His name should always be chanted. Guru’s order should always be obeyed and there should be no other thought.

    If we give a form to these thoughts, that form will become Hanuman. Let’s learn about the duties of Guru and disciple through the story of Surya (Sun God) and Hanuman. Here, the Guru is Surya – Guru to Hanuman. And the disciple is the great Hanuman. In many scriptures, matters pertaining to knowledge are explained citing Surya as an example. Similarly, when explaining the duties of a disciple, Hanuman is cited as an example.

    It was due to Surya that Dharma was established and this creation expanded. He is the inner self, he is in everyone and is everywhere. Lord Surya is the reason this creation is sustained. A lot of seekers benefitted from worshipping him. Many others have walked the path shown by the Lord and have been uplifted. It is because of Surya that we get rain, it is because of him that we have prosperity. While radiating fiercely, he fulfills all his duties. He inspires everyone in the world to follow their duties. Such a great Sun God blessed many people with knowledge. All those blessed by him became great souls.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
