    JGD. This bird has a lovely beak. From the tip to the base the colors change from yellow to pinkish orange which matches Appaji’s attire. The bright red color hidden under it’s wings reminds of Appaji’s brilliance which He must cover up so as not to blind His devotees. SGD

    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Ananyascintayanto ye dhruvam tesam param padam |
    Tasmat sarva prayatnena guroraradhanam kuru ||

    Those who meditate upon the Guru with no other thought will certainly attain Parampad (the blissful state). So worship Guru in all faith and by all means.

    “Sarva prayatnena” indicates you should serve the Guru in various ways. Serve the Guru in all the various ways there are to please the Guru, in all the various ways there are to serve him so we can be redeemed of our sins, all the various ways we want the grace of the Guru. We should meditate upon the Guru whenever we have a moment. We should offer salutations to the Guru every time we see Him. You can never do enough salutations to the Guru. Even a lifetime of salutations is not enough. Worshiping the Guru through all lifetimes is also not enough. That is why, you should worship the Guru in various ways possible thinking,

    “May be this will work well”, “May be the Guru will be pleased with this”, “May be the Guru will bless me if I do this”, while dedicating everything to the Guru Principle.

    Regardless of how extensively we decorate our Lord, we are never satisfied. That is why we keep thinking, “May be we can place this diamond necklace on the Lord”, “May be this garland will look good”, “May be this color garland will look good”. We keep trying various decorations for our own satisfaction. But, we are never satisfied. There is a small difference when it come to service to the Guru, though. In the former case, you are decorating the Lord with a lot of affection. In the case of service to the Guru, you should give up all affections and serve. That is why they ask you to serve in every way possible. You can’t just try one method of service and exclude everything else. You should take everything into account. You should dedicate every small task to the Guru.

    You should think for yourself about all the various ways you can serve the Guru. No one will tell you. You should not say, “No one tells me, I don’t know how to serve the Guru”. Once you figure out how to please the Guru, you should try all the possible ways to continue to please him. The Guru will not be annoyed, he will keep blessing when you tell him, “I did this task”, “I did that task”. All we need is to please him. That is why, we should have a volunteer mindset. We should be self-starters. We should analyze and think for ourselves. We should do everything we can. But, that doesn’t mean you show off in the presence of the Guru. You should not boast or pretend in the presence of the Guru, “That’s not a big deal, I can do that”. He is always witness to what you are doing whether or not he’s physically present. He’s witness to what you are doing in your life. He knows what you’ve done in your past, what you are doing now and what you are capable of doing in the future.

    That’s why, all you need is to serve the Guru without any other thought. You should have no other thoughts. You should not even have expectations of praise. You should just surrender. You should do your tasks and surrender them. If the Guru praises you, it will boost your ego. When that happens, you should immediately realize and be ashamed. That is why you should be very careful.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
