    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Sri Guru Datta.

    In the previous sloka, they referred to the Guru as the primordial (Adi) Guru.

    Eka eva paro bandhuh visame samupasthite |
    Nissprahah karuna sindhuh tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    In this sloka, they are referring to Guru as a “relative”. True. You are all drawn to the Guru because your relationship with the Guru has existed for several births. Others don’t have such fortune. That is why, they refer to the Guru as “Adi Guru”. He is also our relative since time immemorial.

    Gurumadhye sthitam viswam viswamadhye sthito guruh |
    Viswarupo viruposau tasmai sri gurave namah ||

    This whole universe is in the Guru. Guru pervades the entire universe. He is of the form of the Universe, and is formless too. Obeisance to such a Guru.

    Lord Ganapathy, in the form of Guru, was able to see the entire universe. Let’s delve into that story.

    Those who worship Lord Ganapathy will be blessed with great intellect. That is why, Ganapathy festival is very important to students. More so during examinations, when all students worship Ganapathy and Saraswati. It is said that whoever worships Ganapathy is very intelligent. They are intellectually blessed. Second, their intellect blooms. The activities such people plan progress smoothly without any obstacles. Whatever they plan, whatever they are determined to do, progresses without obstacles. They have new ideas that bring them greater fortune. There is such greatness in Lord Ganapathy. He has with him, Siddhi (accomplishments/spiritual powers) and Buddhi (intellect). If one serves Ganapathy, one gains strength and intelligence.

    Siva and Parvati have two sons – Ganapathy Swamy and Kumara Swamy. Both were highly accomplished in everything. One day, the parents talked about getting the sons married. They loved the sons equally, so they were in a quandary about who to get married first. If they got one married first, the other would be angry. This became a vexing problem for Siva and Parvati. Meanwhile, the word of marriage reached the sons. They approached the parents. Each one demanded that he be married first. They argued a lot. After much thought, Siva and Parvati told their sons that they had a plan. Whoever follows the plan will get married first. They said, “We devised a plan. If you follow the plan, you will get married first”. Ganapathy Swamy and Kumara Swamy found this agreeable. They were happy and asked for the plan, the requirements and challenges to be specified.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
