    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta
    Now, they are talking about where we should visualize the Guru as residing while meditating upon him.

    Hrdambuje karnika madhya samsthe simhasane samsthita divyamurtim |
    Dhyayedgurum candrakala prakasam saccit sukhabhista varam dadanam ||
    We should meditate upon the Sadguru visualizing him as one in a divine form, who is seated on the throne situated on the elevated part of our lotus like heart, shining with the splendor of the moon and granting us the boon of eternal bliss.

    Next, they describing with what colors and decorations one should visualize the form of the Guru, who is the source of self-realization.

    Svetambaram sveta vilepa puspam mukta vibhusam muditam trinetram |
    Vamanka pitha sthita divyasaktim mandasmitam sandra krpa nidhanam ||
    One should meditate on the Guru who is the image of Siva, who has donned white clothes, applied white sandalwood paste, is decked in a garland of white flowers and in ornaments made of pearls, is happy, has the divine power seated on his left thigh, is ever-smiling and is an ocean of compassion.

    It doesn’t mean the Guru should always appear as described in the Sloka. Since our Guru described in the Guru Gita, we should not ask the Guru to come dressed in white clothes and white pearls, or that he erase the dark decoration on his forehead and apply white sandal paste instead. If you say that, you’ll receive a good smacking.
    It means that he is not bound by any rules. However, there are hidden meanings behind whatever he is wearing. He may wear different footwear, wear different colored robes, or adorn himself with different kinds of sandalwood paste. All these have a hidden meaning. We should observe carefully. For instance, ochre robes indicate sacrifice and righteousness. The white flowers symbolize the fragrance and beauty of dharma combined with truth. The white sandalwood paste shows the state that’s beyond the dualities of passion and hatred. Did you see how much meaning there is in what he’s wearing?

    Jaya Guru Datta.
