    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta

    Pingala Naga was very surprised seeing Lord Datta’s actions. In the meanwhile, all the elderly saints were shouting slogans of victory to Lord Datta. All the elderly saints were present. They were very happy, shouting slogans of victory to the Lord and prostrating to him. It was then that Pingala Naga had an eye-opener – when elderly saints and Yateeshwaras came in large crowds and prostrated to him while chanting mantras, performed Abhishekam, worshipped and praised him. That’s when he woke up. It was as if he was asleep while standing, like some people sleep with their eyes open during Shivaratri. Some people can sleep while standing, some sleep while sitting. Some people are actually able to sleep while standing, they lean against the wall and doze off. Some people fall asleep while driving their motorbike and kill themselves. Some doze off while driving their car. Some people doze off while cooking, burning their hands in the process. There doesn’t seem to be a regimen to sleeping. That’s how it is. The problem is with the food you eat. Leave that aside, why come to this world, let’s go back to that world.

    Pingala Naga had an eye-opening revelation. He thought straight. He felt the Lord was laughing at him and laughing at the saints too. Pingala Naga felt that there were a lot of hidden meanings in that laughter. “True, he is laughing at me. I am foolish, arrogant and lazy. I came here with devotion, but I had lot of doubts. That is why he is laughing at me. He’s laughing looking at the saints. He is probably smiling at them because they are chanting mantras and are helping with the yagna. Wow, there are a lot of meanings and signals in his laughter. I feel like there are a lot of secrets in this laughter. I cannot understand those secrets. But, I can understand one thing. I understand one secret hidden in this laughter. It is because the Lord is so great that all the saints are following him wherever he goes, they are listening to his discourses. I will also ask Swamy (Lord) and understand the principle of Siva”.

    All those present were asking the Lord spiritual questions and learning, just like how people these days ask Swamiji about the ups and downs in their lives. Of course, no one ever asks Swamiji a spiritual question. Here, Pingala Naga wanted to ask the Lord about the principle of Siva. “That is the reason I came here”, he thought. At that time, Datta Swamy was seated under Amalaka tree (Indian gooseberry or Phyllantus Emblica). Pingala Naga approached the Lord and prostrated to him. He felt the time was right for him place his doubts in front of the Lord. Prostrating, he proceeded to ask the Lord. “Swamy, the Vedas and other scriptures have established 4 varnas (classes) and 4 stages in a man’s life. All these saints are following the
    Dharmic order established by the Vedas. But, your actions are defying that Dharma”, he asked bravely. “Still, the saints are holding you in the highest regard, they are worshiping you. Swamy, I can’t understand the subtle Dharmic principles here”.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Sri Guru Datta.
