    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Next, elephant. You should interest, have but should not have excessive attachment. If interest is within limits, the purpose will be fulfilled, if not, the task should not be undertaken. It will lead to a loss. Behaving without discrimination and scrutiny will lead to this disaster. Many famous people have wealth and experience. But, we have also seen many of them these days lose everything over something new that catches their fancy. They accumulate a lot of money, working very hard, earning great reputation and wealth that would last them several generations. But, something else catches their fancy and they get into it. For instance, a great film actor, after earning millions of dollars, instead of using it for charitable purposes, gets down to making a movie himself and loses all money. We have been seeing that a lot of these days. They have no sense of discrimination on what they should and should not do or where their experience lies. One person may be successful thinking, “I know everything, it’ll be done”, but everyone will not be. They lose whatever reputation they have.

    Avadhoota Swamy is pointedly repeating the same topic of infatuation towards women. There is no sin of repetition in cautioning repeatedly about danger. Some people say, “Be careful, You are heading out now, be careful. Be careful on the bus, be careful there, be careful here”. They even seat that person on the bus and run after the bus cautioning them. That does not mean the person cautioning us is stupid. When someone is repeatedly cautioning us we should not say, “I know, how many times will you tell me?” You cannot be cautioned enough. That is why Avadhoota Swamy is telling King Yadu the same thing in many different ways. He is reminding and talking about whatever he said before. That is why, the more careful you are about women, the better for you.

    If an enemy is unable to confront a wealthy person, they will observe the habits of that wealthy person, be careful. They will find out what that wealthy person is interested in, and get him addicted to it. A few people gather around wealthy people, famous personalities, or great people, becoming their minions, always praising them. They observe and understand the person based on his habits, his talk and his behavior. They will get to the person’s weakness and slowly push him towards it, getting him addicted to those vices. They will make sure he spends all his money on those vices. They will use his intellect and his money. So, they find out what he has interest in, make sure he has full access to whatever he is attached to and they get him addicted to it. That means, they bring him to a point where he cannot let go of that habit and then they suck out everything from him.

    We are being cautioned against this here.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
