    Jaya Guru Datta. Episode summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    We discussed that the fish, trying to get the worm in the bait, get caught in the hook. We said that the fisherman throws a hook to catch the fish. The fisherman places a worm as bait on the hook to attract the fish. The fish, desiring the worm, get caught in the hook. They even lose their life in this attempt. The seeker should not succumb to desires like a fish. If he runs after useless desires, he will kill himself. Filled with ignorance, the being should not become a slave to the sense organ of tongue and bring danger to himself. He must gain knowledge, learn about contentment and be satisfied with what he has. Then, greed will not take him over. Discrimination and knowledge will take a foothold. Such discrimination and knowledge will also reveal to us what kind of ruin the web of desires bring us. It keeps the seeker within appropriate limits and protects him.

    The 17th Guru is a prostitute named Pingala. Let us see what we can learn from this.

    This creation is full of surprises and marvels. There are many things to learn from people in the lower strata of society. Do not think you cannot learn anything from people in the lower strata of society. The subtle aspects reveal themselves only to people who have a broad perspective. One gains the company of noble souls and equanimity of outlook only when one has has a broad perspective.

    That is why, with the grace of noble souls, one must practice having a broad perspective. Avadhoota Swamy was great. Datta Swamy was very great. Because he had a very big and a broad outlook, he taught King Yadu what learned from the prostitute Pingala.

    In the country of Vidarbha, a prostitute named Pingala earned a lot of money using her beauty and charm. One day Pingala did not get any customers. She grew tired and weary. Her disappointment led to dispassion. “What is this? I did not get any money today…”. She was disgusted with her profession and even her life. Her disgust increased her dispassion. She gave up her desire for money. She dedicated her life to Sri Hari. She centered her mind on Hari. The reason for this change in her was Hari.

    The ignorance ones think that desires lead to happiness. They take refuge in the false happiness of desires. Man is fundamentally full of desires, but his desires should further a noble cause. Unless it furthers a noble cause, it is not a worthy desire. If the desire is not fulfilled, it leads to disappointment and sorrow. We thought that it was the desires that drove all the noble causes. But, those are not really desires. If the desire is not fulfilled, it causes sorrow. To withstand this sorrow, there is no other means except refuge in the Guru. Guru teaches dispassion. He fixes and improves our lives.
    Jaya Guru Datta.
