    May 23, Ep 152

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    Guru bhakto bhavecchighram guru gita japena tu |
    Dhanya mata pita dhanyo dhanya vamsya jana api |
    Dhanya ca vasudha yatra guru bhaktah prajayate ||
    One who chants the Guru Gita becomes a disciple of Guru quickly. Such disciples, their parents, their lineage and the people of their country are blessed. For people with a wavering mind, the chanting of Guru Gita is very useful.

    Idam rahasyam no vacyam yasmai kasmaicana priye |
    Abhakte vancake dhurte pasande nastike tatha |
    Manasapi na vaktavya gurugita kadacana ||
    Siva says to Parvati that Guru Gita should not be revealed to all and sundry particularly to non-devotees, impostors, the wicked, the fallen and the atheists. The very thought of giving them the Guru Gita should not come up.

    In the previous sloka, they said that even people with wavering minds can study the Guru Gita. But, here, they are specifying clearly who the Guru Gita should not be given to. The kind of people that Guru Gita should not be given to are specially being mentioned. This is an ethical rule for knowledge, it’s also the rule for the world. For instance, food should not be given to one who is not hungry. Some people may just be interested in learning to play musical instruments. If you forcibly give them knowledge, they will not be able to absorb it. Similarly, some people are only interested in food, some in just money and some in just clothes, they don’t aspire for good knowledge. Some people want to chant the Guru Gita just to fulfill their desires. That’s tantamount to buying the Guru Gita for money.

    Just because you want to always feed the hungry, you should not wish for everyone to become poor. Just because you want to donate money, you can’t wish that people become penniless. That means that even though there is no need, you want to feel great doing these donations. You may think, “Everybody should become utterly poor, they should all get hungry, so that I can donate food”. You should never wish for such things. Similarly, just for you to become Guru, you should not give initiation to just anyone. People keep giving initiation to whoever they like. That is also wrong. But, your Swamiji doesn’t let go of anyone, he even takes the ineligible ones, makes them eligible and gives them initiation.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
