    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    We discussed that Surya got worried seeing Hanuman block his chariot. He told Hanuman, “I could impart knowledge to you, no problem. But you won’t be able to hear me over the sounds made by my moving chariot. You tell me if you have a plan to overcome this obstacle”.

    Hanuman replied “Gurudeva, I will expand my body. I will place one foot on Udayadri and the other on Hastadri. I will only place my head in your chariot. The sound made by the wheels of your chariot can be heard in all the worlds, but cannot be heard inside your chariot. As your chariot moves, my head will go along . Then, your chariot won’t stop, nor will the flow of your knowledge to me. Please bless me” . The Guru agreed, blessed him and began imparting knowledge.

    Hanuman learned all knowledge from the Sun God in 7 days. He became an expert in the nine branches of grammar. An ideal disciple always stays close to the Guru.

    He will only move with people associated with the Guru. Because Hanuman was the best of disciples, he never forgot his Guru. He never abandoned people associated with his Guru. Sri Rama belonged to the Sun dynasty. Sugreeva was the son of Sun God. Hanuman made friends with them. He always stood by Sri Rama and Sugreeva. He accomplished the tasks for Sri Rama. Surya, the Guru never forgot the disciple either. He helped Hanuman accomplish Sri Rama’s tasks every step of the way. He contributed to his disciple’s victory. The relationship between the Guru and the disciple is such. Once the Guru decides that the disciple is his, he will never abandon him. A disciple should be like Hanuman, always wishing the Guru well. He should be content in the service of the Guru.

    Let’s look at the description of the next Sloka. To underscore the importance of any matter, repeating that matter is the tradition followed in the scriptures. This is called “Abhyasam” (practice).

    Here, Lord Shiva is indicating that service to the Guru is most important. That is why this matter is repeated. That is not all, they are reiterating that there should be no thought other than the Guru.

    This is explained even further in the next Sloka.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
