    Jaya Guru datta. Episode Summary:

    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.

    Pravaktavya prayatnena mamatma priyate tada ||
    A man with a fully mature mind and a man with dedication and devotion should definitely be taught this. Siva says to Parvati that he’s very happy when this happens.
    Earlier they said that you should not pine to become a Guru. In the next 3 slokas, they are instructing us not to seek refuge in unqualified and rogue Gurus.

    Guravo bahavassanti sisya vittapa harakah |
    Durlabhassa gururloke sisya santapa harakah ||
    There are many Gurus in the world who rob the disciples of their money. But it is very difficult to get a Guru who robs the disciples of their sins.

    Jnanahino gurum manyo mithyavadi vidamabakah |
    Svavistrantim na janati parasantim karoti kim ||
    A man without knowledge who calls himself Guru, uttering falsehood, and moving about with fanfare doesn’t get any peace of mind. Can he give any peace of mind to others?
    Generally, we make our bed a little soft. If we make our bed a little hard, it may take a little longer, but we will eventually fall asleep. It means that we got accustomed to that hard bed. Based on the situation at hand, how God should be worshiped is to be understood, and followed accordingly. This verse is specifically telling us that one should not accept as Guru one who can neither do good to others, nor to himself and one who is greedy for others’ sake and greedy for his own sake as well.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
