    Sri Guru Gita episode 37 – English summary – Jaya Guru Datta (refrain: Listen to Sri Guru Gita, Sachchidananda Sadgurudeva’s discourse on Sri Guru Gita) Note: Observe the parrot/parrots from Shuka Vana. Recognize the species and make a note. Visit for photos of parrots and information on the different species. It was a parrot which first listened to the secret knowledge about Guru while Siva was explaining it to Parvati. Later Sage Suka (with a parrot’s head) gave this knowledge to his father Veda Vyasa. It was revealed to humanity by Sage Vyasa through Srimad Bhagavatam and the Skanda Purana.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Some people visualize Guru by starting from the head and going down step by step towards the feet. This is another method. However, it is not acceptable for the attention to hop from one part to another part of the form of Guru in a haphazard manner, like a monkey. One must not look at Guru in this manner (while in his direct presence either).
    Prior to commencing any worthy task, the proper complete visualization of the form of Guru should be performed. If it is done, impediments will not occur and the aim will be accomplished.
    For the study of Guru Gita there are prescribed hand gestures to be shown and different parts of the body to be touched (Anganyasa and Karanyasa) prior to commencement.
    The importance of this scripture and its essence may be assessed by us by considering the context in which it came into being. This Guru Gita, which explains the essence of Guru Principle came into being in the form of a dialog between sages Suta and Saunaka as they discussed the conversation that took place between Siva and Parvati.
    The work begins with the interaction between Sage Suta and other rishis who were in the company of Sage Saunaka.
    Verse: Guhyad …
    Once upon a time, Saunaka and some other sages addressed Sage Suta with their plea: “O Sage Suta, Guru Gita is full of essence and is yet undisclosed. We are eager to hear it and we pray to you to kindly initiate us.”
    Why is this considered secret knowledge? Even the Bhagavad Gita is referred to as being undisclosed information. This is said to be top secret. Similarly, the one thousand names of Lalita are also referred to as a secret collection of divine descriptive names. Our sacred scriptures often use this term secret. Does it mean that it is the intention of our celestial seers to keep this information undisclosed? Is it something like a trade secret? No. Not at all. The real secret knowledge, the unknown principle, is God. That divine principle is fully explained here. That is what is meant by its being secret.
    Verse: Kailasa …
    Upon hearing the request of the sages, Sage Suta felt happy that he is being given an opportunity of sharing this precious information with those sages who have the eligibility for hearing it. He spoke thus:
    Jaya Guru Datta
