    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    We were talking about Surya and about Hanuman. We discussed that 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 and kept up his fame. It is said that the best among those disciples was Hanuman.

    Hanuman was associated with Surya right from his childhood. Hanuman’s father Vayu Deva (the God Wind) was a friend of Lord Surya. As soon as Hanuman was born, he had darshan of his Guru. This is an unprecedented event for any disciple. No one ever had such a good fortune. He had darshan of his Guru as soon as he was born. Since he had darshan of his Guru, he wanted to merge with his Guru. He faced an obstacle on his path to reaching the Guru and lost consciousness. In the story, they say that he jumped towards the Sun mistaking it for a fruit. He didn’t mistake it for a fruit. The true spiritual reason behind it was that he wanted to merge with his Guru. But, there was an obstacle and he wasn’t able to merge with his Guru.

    After that incident, Anjaneya became Hanuman. Hanuman never forgot his Guru. His mother Anjana Mata perceived this and ordered her son to go learn all knowledge from Lord Surya. Hanuman’s joy knew no bounds. He was ecstatic. His mother’s command was exactly what he had desired. Overjoyed to have darshan of his Guru and to be under his tutelage, Hanuman joyfully jumped and reached the Sun.

    Then, Guru Surya wanted to show the world the strength and intelligence in his disciple. Earlier, when Hanuman had lost consciousness, Surya appeared before him and blessed him thus: “May he get one hundredth of own radiance. May he be blessed him with the realization of all knowledge as soon as he grows up. May he become a great orator”. Both Anjana Devi and Vayu Deva were aware of these blessings.

    As soon as Hanuman reached Surya, Surya recalled his blessings. Imagine Hanuman actually reaching the Sun. That has to be due to Surya’s blessings. According to the word he gave Hanuman, he had no choice but to impart knowledge to him. He had given his word to Hanuman. Even though he decided to put Hanuman to test, he already knew that Hanuman had all the qualities of an ideal disciple.

    Speaking in the ways of the world, Lord Surya said “Son, it is my duty to always be on the move. If you move keep moving along with me, you will never gain knowledge”. Hanuman loved his mother very dearly. When the Guru said this, he remembered his mother’s orders and decided to accomplish the task, come what may. His mother had ordered him to gain knowledge from Surya, no matter what. Without a second thought, he blocked Surya’s chariot and prayed to him to bless him with knowledge. Surya got worried seeing the disciple block his chariot. He told Hanuman that he would impart knowledge, but that it would be difficult for Hanuman to hear Surya because of the sounds made by the moving chariot. He said, “While I move, you won’t be able to hear me over the sounds made by my moving chariot”. Let’s see what happens next.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
