    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Karya karana rupaya rupa rupaya te sada |
    Apramye svarupaya sivaya gurave namah ||

    Obeisance to Guru who is the cause and the effect, who is of attributes and who has no attributes at all, whose form cannot be imagined and who is Siva himself.

    Datta Sadguru is filled with an abundance of these qualities. So, let’s learn of a few miracles that Datta Sadguru showed in this aspect.

    Lord Datta’s magnanimity in uplifting disciples is unparalleled. Like sunlight, the Lord’s grace completely submerges the disciple. But, his ways of testing his disciples are very strange. He has a new tests each day. His tests are beyond imagination of people, beyond imagination of even Nature. In some instances, they may be delightful, in others there may be deep spiritual secrets embedded. In some stories, the ones that are visible to us, people wonder why he behaves strangely. Take Swamiji for instance. So many people make fun of him behind his back saying, “He has nothing better to do, he is crazy” . Some others say he’s doing it for humor, to make people laugh. But, real devotees who can sit steadily and think carefully about the actions of the Guru can understand the great spiritual significance in those actions. Superficial devotees will not see this. People who do not contemplate on it will not see it either. Every action of the Guru is unique and interesting – the actions seem easy to find faults with. People may wonder why the Guru is making this mistake or why the Guru is testing only them. Some may pooh pooh a test considering it too small for them.

    The tests are very interesting. If the disciple can face them successfully, he will reap benefits beyond his own imagination. Disciples need to face those tests successfully. Second, those who receive these tests should consider themselves fortunate and should strive to win those tests. You should take delight in and shine in those tests, and not be dejected or humiliated. You should not think you are too big for these tests. Nor should you think you are so great that this test is too trivial for you. It may seem too trivial now, but you will find out over time, that it’s not trivial. You think you can win the test without lifting a finger, but you will not be able to win in several births. That is how Lord Datta’s miracles are…they are beyond our imagination, comprehension or beyond our understanding. Read Lord Datta’s life history, you will understand. Read the life history. Did he test himself to see if he would win or did he test himself to show you what the tests would be like? Is he doing this to caution us?

    We keep worrying about the tests, but have we considered the outcome of our karma? The tests we receive are in accordance with our karma. You should not think that the tests are beyond your capability or knowledge. When you look at these tests with love, you will understand that it is the Guru’s grace that let’s you complete these tests. That’s how unique they are. Jaya Guru Datta.
