    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta. We discussed that one day, Siva and Parvati were talking about getting Ganapathy and Kumara Swamy 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. So, they set up a competition between the two. The problem would be solved when one of them wins the contest. Then, there would no contention. Meanwhile, the word of marriage reached the sons. They approached the parents. Each one demanded that he be married first. They argued a lot. Siva and Parvati stopped the arguing and told their sons that they had a plan. Whoever follows the plan 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.

    Then Siva and Parvati said, you are both equally noble in your character. There is no difference between you two. We love you both equally. That is why, we decided on a healthy contest between you two. The one to circle the earth and return first will be married first. Instantly, Kumara Swamy boarded his peacock and dashed into the air. The peacock was already a bird to start with, it was Kumara Swamy’s vehicle. Kumara Swamy flew away like the wind on the back of the peacock. If small birds have so much power, if small birds can repeat after Swamiji, imagine the power in the God-like peacock that was the vehicle of Kumara Swamy. The peacock had the power to fly like the wind. Don’t assume birds are ordinary. Once they fly away, it’s very difficult to catch them. These birds (around me) are not flying away only because they are bound by love.

    Poor Ganapathy Swamy sat in a corner, wondering what he could do. Kumara Swamy flew away on his vehicle, the huge peacock. Even the feathers of the peacock were large enough to rest comfortably against. Ganapathy Swamy sat in a corner wondering what he could do, he didn’t have a vehicle like that. He started using his intellect. His vehicle was Mooshika Raja (mooshika= mouse; Raja = king). The mouse was also powerful. It is not an ordinary mouse like the ones we see. It’s not like the mice that eat cockroaches and destroy crops. The ordinary mouse eats the sweets in the house, nibbles on our clothes, nibbles on our head if we have coconut oil in our hair. It eats away the belly of someone that ate vadas (donut shaped savories). It loves people that eat vadas. Their breath smells up to three miles away. Those who eat vadas don’t stop at one vada. That smell draws mosquitoes, mice, cockroaches etc as if a huge platter of food is awaiting them.

    Ganapathy’s mouse was not like that. It was a massive mouse that could carry anything. It was a divine, magical mouse, not one that squeaks or can be found in a laboratory. Still Ganapathy Swamy looked at the mouse once. The mouse was capable, but he thought this mouse was too big and it would be difficult to travel with it.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
