    జయగురుదేవదత్త గురుదేవా మీ అనుగ్రహముతోనే సర్వసంపన్నమైన బుద్దికి పరమాత్మనుభవము కలుగుతుంది,గురుదేవా మీ అనుగ్రహము ఉంటేనే సత్ చింతనతో మానవుడు తరించగలుగుతాడు, గురుదేవా మీ దయా అనుగ్రహము ఉంటేనే శిష్యులమైన మేము సత్ కర్మ ఆచరణ చేయడానికి అవకాశం కలుగుతుంది, గురుదేవా మీ కరుణ అనుగ్రహము ఉంటేనే మాకు మీ పదమున నడిచే శక్తి కలుగు తుంది, గురుదేవా మీరే మాకు దైవం మీరే మాకు పరమాత్మ మీరే మాకు గురువులకు గురుడవు గణపతి దేవా, గణగణములకు పతి అయిన గణపతిదొరికిన జయం జయం……..

    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.

    Summary of episode 49:

    Guru Datta.
    Durlabham trisu lokesu tacchrnu pravada myaham
    Gurum brahma vina nanyat satyam satyam varanane

    Siva says to Parvati to hear him say the secret that no one in the three worlds knows.
    Guru is verily Parabrahman and there is nothing else besides this. This is an absolute truth. Here, the three worlds also indicate Brahma loka, Vaikuntha and Kailasa. Let’s talk about the story of Matsya Narayana, who is Parabrahman, and a Guru to the Gurus.

    Eons ago, there used to be a king called Vaivasvata who ruled the earth. During his reign, there was a great deluge. Once, when the king was offering his prayers by the river, Sri Hari appeared in the form of a little fish and slipped into the water that the king had cupped in his hands. Let’s talk about the ways of the divine. The fish implored the king to save its life. The king kept the fish in his sacred water pot. Soon, the little fish grew too large for the pot, so the king moved the fish to a little pond. The fish quickly outgrew the pond and asked the king to take it to another place. The king moved the fish to a big lake. The fish soon grew too big for the lake as well. Vaivasvata then released the fish in to the ocean. He realized that the fish was none other than Sri Hari and prayed to the Lord. Vaivasvata was also called Satyavrata (for his adherence to truth).

    At the time of the deluge, Vaivasvata welcomed the Lord in the form of a Guru and diligently followed his commands. By the grace of Matsya Narayana (Lord Sri Hari in the form of a fish), Vaivasvata received Sankhya Yoga and the Puranas as blessings. He realized the absolute truth that Guru is Parabrahman and that there is nothing else. He beautifully praised the Lord who appeared to him as a Guru.
    “Humans in this world live in illusion. Due to this illusion, they are mired in samsara and face many sorrows and difficulties. But, when they take refuge with you to get away from their sorrows, they realize you are their inner self. You are Guru to the Gurus. You are pleased easily. You are the great one that grants liberation. Therefore, please bless me with liberation”.
    Due to the Guru’s grace, he became the overlord of Manvantara (span of time measured in astronomical period).

    The age we are living in now is Vaivasvata Manvantaram. Vaivasvata is Satyavrata (he adheres to truth or Satya). One who adheres to truth like Satyavrat did and places complete faith in the Guru despite many difficulties will be blessed immensely.
    One who realizes that Guru is Parabrahman and serves the Guru will reap great benefits. This sloka is asking us to place our faith in the Guru, to lead a noble life and to realize the absolute truth.
    The next 4 slokas say that if we are not mindful of the Guru Principle, all worship, prayers, rituals and meditation are futile

    Veda sastra puranani cetihasadi kani ca
    mantra tantradi vidyasca smrti ruccata nadikam

    Saiva saktagama dini hyanye ca bahavo matah
    Bhramaka sarva evai te jivana malapa cetasam

    Vedas, shastras, epics, puranas, studies in spells and rituals, smritis, necromancy (black arts) Saiva Agamas, Sakti Agamas, and other branches of knowledge delude the petty minds. Jaya Guru Datta.
