    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Gurormukhacca samprapya devi brahmatma samvidam |
    Trailokya sphuta vaktaro devarsi pitr manavah ||

    Those who attain knowledge “I am Parabrahman” through the grace of Guru, whether they are Gods, saints, manes (guardian spirits of ancestors), humans or anyone else, become unparalleled ones in all the three worlds. Such beings become Gurus themselves. We should realize this Principle. The knowledge of such principle is obtained only through the Guru and nowhere else.

    Everyone has a Guru – the Gods have a Guru, Yakshas, Kinnaras, Kimpurushas etc., all have Gurus, humans have Guru, saints have Guru, all living beings have a Guru. That is why they ask you to chant the name of the Guru. There’s a small insect, just like an earthworm that some of you may have seen. The insect lives in the soil and keeps tilling it. There’s a fly that looks like a honey bee that’s got a very painful sting.

    The fly picks up the insect, places it in its dwelling and keeps poking at it. It’ll occasionally bring it some food to nurture it. The insect is always afraid of being poked. Living in constant fear of being poked, the insect is always thinking of the fly. The insect is so immersed in thinking about the fly that it finally flies away like the fly, with the fly, with its Guru, with its mother, with its father. Similarly, by constantly chanting Guru mantra and meditating on the Principle taught by the Guru, one becomes Guru himself. Contemplating on the syllables of the mantra and the meaning of the mantra is the next step up in meditation. That is why, they describe the meaning of the word “Guru” in the next 5 slokas. Let’s listen.

    Gukarascandhakaro hi rukarasteja ucyate |
    Ajnana grasakam brahma gurureva na samsayah ||

    Lot of people talk about GURU, but don’t really understand the principle of Guru.

    People explaining the meaning of the word GURU may explain the meaning of individual syllables, but they still are unable to grasp the Guru Principle. That means they are unable to drive way the darkness. GU stands for darkness and RU stands for light. So, light and darkness are in the word GURU. Undoubtedly GURU is the Parabrahman who swallows ignorance; RU indicates one who swallows darkness.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
