    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.

    Now, Ganapathy saw the mouse in the corner and thought to himself, “This mouse cannot carry me around on this trip”. He glanced towards Kumara Swamy, but Kumara Swamy had long flown away. He thought to himself, “I am still sitting here, staring at my pot belly. My enormous belly extends all the way to the floor when I’m sitting down”. Of course, it is not an ordinary belly, the entire universe is in that belly. He sighed as he found it difficult to even get up from that corner.

    But Ganapthy’s intellect is extremely sharp. The Lord hit upon an idea. He immediately got up, bathed and went to this parents. “Mother, Father, I wish to worship you. Kindly take this seat here”, he said pointing to a seat. They didn’t understand this new behavior. They took the seat that Ganapathy was pointing to. Ganapathy worshiped them with sincere devotion and dedication. He did circumambulations to them 7 times and prostrated to them saying “Please get me married”. The parents laughed at his proposition and said “Your little brother is on a tour of planet earth. You didn’t stir from here and are proposing we get you married first. He will return soon from his trip. But you are right here, worshiping us, circumambulating us and prostrating to us. You also go around planet earth and come back, we’ll get your married. How can we get you married if you don’t even stir from here?”

    Ganapathy Swamy replied, “Dear parents, you are the epitome of Dharma, you are all-knowing. There is nothing you do not know. I do not need to tell you, but for the sake of formality, I’m telling you:
    Guru Madhye Sthitam Viswam

    This whole universe is in the Guru. Guru pervades the entire universe. He is of the form of the Universe, and is formless too. Obeisance to such a Guru.

    You are both my Gurus. The entire universe is in you. By circumambulating you, I received the benefit of circumambulating the universe 7 times. So, get me married.“

    Siva and Parvati were happy with his intellect, devotion and dedication. They were extremely pleased with Ganapathy’s intellect, reasoning, presence of mind and devotion. They appreciated his complete faith in them as Guru. Parents are our fist Gurus. Ganapathy had strong faith in his Guru. That is why, every sacred place Kumara Swamy went to, he would encounter Ganapathy returning from there. Kumara Swamy didn’t just circle the earth, he visited all the sacred places that he came upon. He even dipped in the sacred waters in those places. As he did that, he saw that Ganapathy had already taken a dip in the sacred waters and had already visited the place. Kumara Swamy was surprised to see that Ganapathy Swamy always seemed to be ahead of him.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
