    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    The Guru is not bound by any rules. However, there are hidden meanings behind the footwear and robes he adorns. 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. The necklace of pearls indicates that he is beyond all planetary effects. If he is completely adorned in white, it means he is imparting knowledge. The greatness of the Guru is clearly described again in the next two slokas.

    Yasmin srsti sthiti dhwamsa nigrahanugrahatmakam |
    Krtyam pancavidham sasvat bhasate tam gurum bhajet ||

    The Guru who shines with the power of creation, preservation and destruction restraint and grace should be served.

    Na guroradhikam na guroradhikam na guroradhikam na guroradhikam |
    Siva sasanatah siva sasanatah siva sasanatah siva sasanatah ||

    There is no one superior to a Guru. This is the ruling of Lord Siva himself.

    Until now, we’ve been initiated into the path of meditating on the Guru. Now, we will be initiated into the path of worshiping the Guru through Jnana (knowledge) Yoga.

    Jneyam sarvam vilapyeta visuddha jnana yogatah |
    Jnatrtva mapi cinmatre nanyah pantha dvitiyakah ||

    All that reveals itself (Jneyam) should be burnt with the purified Jnana Yoga. Finally, the “Jnatrtvam” also should be burnt. There is no way other than this. “Jnatrtvam” is the ego that leads one to believe “I am the one gaining knowledge”. The paths of worship also vary depending on the differences between the practicants and their eligibility.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
