    Sri Guru Gita – 29th April, 2014 – Episode 128 – a summary
    Sloka: Gachchatah ….
    While guru is walking, you must only follow him. You must never overtake him or walk ahead of him.
    You must never be dressed ostentatiously, wear showy jewelry or use elaborate cosmetics and ornamentation in the presence of guru. Devotees who do it out of ignorance are forgiven, but not disciples. Who are devotees? Who are disciples? What is the difference?
    Those who merely come for darshan and leave are devotees. Those who come frequently to see guru, listen to his words of wisdom, offer him gifts and services off and on, and lead their family lives as per the advice given by guru are disciples.
    Once the relationship is established as that of guru and disciple, certain rules must be followed.
    Sloka: Guru nindaa
    If anyone is blaming guru, such persons must be chased out, or else prevented from speaking ill of guru. You must contradict them, argue with them and must convince them that they are completely wrong. If none of these are possible, leave the spot at once and go far away, saying, “You do not leave. You do not stop talking. I cannot argue with you and convince you. Hence, I leave your presence”. But to listen to verbal abuse of guru and to tolerate it, thinking that whatever the other person says is his own business, is a terrible sin.
    The only atonement for it is to cut out the tongue.
    What is the harm in tolerating such speech?
    One word or argument amongst those ten arguments he gives may cause the disciple to begin entertaining doubts about his guru. Suspicion may arise that may be there is some truth in his words.
    Cut out your own tongue or cut out his tongue.
    It does not mean taking a knife and actually cutting off the tongue and going to the hospital. You would have to then get stitches or you would have to get a replacement tongue from some animal, like a dog, or get a wooden replacement tongue.
    What it means that you should endlessly speak until the opponent is either convinced that you are right, or runs away, unable to take the force of your arguments. He should simply run away and leave your friendship. That is the meaning of cutting their tongue. Shut them up completely.
    It is not as easy as taking a pair of scissors and chopping off your tongue and getting stitches.
    Jaya Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    Mother Parvati immolated herself when she heard her father accuse her husband and Guru Lord Shiva. Listening to criticism of the Guru is such a grave sin. I pray to Sri Swamiji to protect us from such a sin.

    Prostrations at the Holy Lotus Feet.
