    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:
    Sri Guru Datta
    Nityaya nirvikaraya niravadyaya yogine |
    Niskalaya nirihaya sivaya gurave namah ||
    Obeisance to the Sadguru who is eternal, unwavering, blame-less, a Yogi, untainted, fully-realized, desire-less, auspicious and verily Siva himself. Here, a question arises: Why is the term “Siva” alone being used to refer to Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara? There are many reasons for this. Shiva is the symbol and granter of auspiciousness. What is auspiciousness? All attributes stated in reference to the Guru in the above sloka describe what auspiciousness is. So those who worship Guru become unwavering, blame-less, fully-realized and desire-less. The Guru Himself is like that. How can he bless us with those attributes unless He is Himself full of those attributes. In reality, the Guru is beyond all cause and is hence unwavering and unchanging. The Guru is beyond all cause. So, while referring to Siva as Trinity, they are reminding us of that which is unwavering and beyond the trinity. That supreme concept is explained even more clearly in this Sloka.

    Sisya hrtpadma suryaya satyaya jnanarupine |
    Vedanta vakya vedyaya sivaya gurave namah ||

    He is like the sun to the lotus-like hearts of his disciples. He is the embodiment of truth, and of knowledge. He is revealed through the Upanishads, is a symbol of auspiciousness, and is verily Siva himself. Obeisance to such a Sadguru.

    Intellect is like a lotus, heart is like another lotus. Here, there are two kinds of hearts. One is the Guru heart, the other is the human heart. These are also referred to as the spiritual heart and the material heart. The spiritual heart is on the right side of the body, while the material heart is on the left. The heart on the right has no bones or flesh. That is why it is spiritual heart. It is just ether, it has nothing, filled with emptiness. That is where the spiritual heart is.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
