    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    In childhood, there is no knowledge or awareness about any aspect of life. That is why, parents should remember to take responsibility for inculcating discipline in their children and building their character. A boy’s mind is always on toys and strange objects. He is always attracted to them. He stubbornly cries for them. Once he gets them, he is very happy. A boy often keeps laughing to himself.

    A boy has no bondages, no sorrows. Avadhoota Swamy is teaching us that the Yogi should be like a boy. Yogi should realize the Supreme Truth and find his inner happiness. Just as a boy is free from worry, a seeker of Yoga too should be free from worry. The boy is not affected by the six vices (Arishadvargas – kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, matsarya), he does not know anything, he is calm. Similarly, a Yogi too should be calm. The boy does not know anything, he is innocent. The Yogi should absorb the innocence from the boy and learn to be humble. He must never reveal his state to anyone.

    In reality there are only two kinds of people that are free from all worry. One is the boy and the other is the person who is beyond the three attributes (gunas: sattva, rajas, tamas). A Yogi should never reveal his spiritual practices to anyone. He should earn his spiritual wealth while remaining humble, as if he does not know anything. He must try to become the person who is beyond the three attributes. Only then will he achieve his spiritual goals.

    Outward trappings and fanfare will not allow spiritual progress. Many obstacles will come up and will impede spiritual practice. That is why, Avadhoota Swamy is teaching that in spiritual practice, a seeker should be like a boy. It is much better for the seeker of Yoga to say, “I don’t know, I would like to know”, than to say, “I know it all”. That will benefit the seeker and will protect his spiritual practice. Otherwise, ego will take root and all the hard work will be wasted. The Yogi will fall from Yogic grace. A seeker of Yoga who is always like a boy will go beyond the three attributes.

    Next, maiden. To write a good poem, to meditate or to analyze the future course of action, solitude is necessary. How much we can be in solitude depends on our state of mind. Solitude helps us look back at our actions and analyze them as well as think about what we need to do in the future. Solitude should be used for good deeds to attain good results, but not for bad deeds. Avoiding duty and sitting in a corner to find solitude will only bring sorrow.

    Jaya Guru Datta.

  2. Jai guru Datta Swamiji.
