    Jaya Guru Datta
    Note: Observe the parrot/parrots from Shuka Vana. Recognize the species and make a note. Visit for photos of parrots and information on the different species. It was a parrot which first listened to the secret knowledge about Guru while Siva was explaining it to Parvati. Later Sage Suka (with a parrot’s head) gave this knowledge to his father Veda Vyasa. It was revealed to humanity by Sage Vyasa through Srimad Bhagavatam and the Skanda Purana.

    Episode 48, English summary:
    Jaya Guru Datta! We discussed that the little children – Sri Krishna and Sudhama – were shivering in the dark coldness of what looked like the night of doomsday. They were terrified. Somehow the night passed. At dawn, Sage Sandeepani who had set out in search of the two children found them shivering in the cold. He was overcome with compassion. He drew them close to him and lovingly wiped their bodies dry with his shawl. Isn’t it amazing! The Guru is like a mother, like a father.

    He commended the boys’ bravery. He said that outstanding disciples like them sacrifice themselves completely in the service of the Guru. He said that one must be blessed to be able to serve the Guru. He was very pleased with them. He blessed them generously with fulfillment of all their desires and said “All the Vedas and other scriptures you learn here will continue to grant you auspiciousness in all the other worlds you go to”. He held their hands and took them back home. Thus, the little children, Sri Krishna and Sudhama immersed themselves completely in the service of the Guru without worrying about their mortal bodies, as a result of which they got blessed immensely by their Guru.
    Once, when the Guru asked Sri Krishna for Guru Dakshina in the form of bringing his dead son back, Sri Krishna, along with his brother Balarama went to Lord Yama and got the Guru’s son back. This is a wonderful story. By accomplishing such impossible feats, he greatly pleased his Guru

    By the Guru’s grace, Sri Krishna achieved everlasting fame.
    Only one who has the Guru’s grace can find lasting peace. Therefore, everyone needs a Guru. One’s life is incomplete without a Guru. When noble souls take refuge with a Sadguru, and walk the noble path, they will attain higher worlds.
    Thus Lord Shiva, after explaining that the Guru has all the attributes of the Trinity and is none other than the Trinity, goes on to say that the Guru is the Parabrahman who’s beyond all attributes.

    “Durlabham trishu lokeshu”

    Lord Shiva says, “Parvati, I will tell you the secret that no one in all the three worlds knows”. Lord Shiva is saying that Guru is Parabrahma. We’ll see what he says next. Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta.
