SRI GURU GITA-10 (Chapter-1)

MAHAPERIYAVA


91) GUKAARAM CHA GUNAATHEETHAM RUKAARAM ROOPAVARJITHAM

GUNAATHEETHA MAROOPAM CHA YO DADYAA THSA GURU SMRUTHAHA.

Meaning- 'GU' means beyond natural tendencies. 'RU' means the state of formlessness. The true Spiritual Master is one who grants that which is beyond nature and form.

92) ATHRINETHRA SSHIVA SSAAKSHAATH DWIBAAHU SHCHA HARIHI SMRUTHAHA

YO CHATHURVADANO BRAHMAA SHREEGURUHU KADHITHAHA PRIYE.

Meaning- O Beloved! Spiritual Master is truly and absolutely Lord Shiva without third eye, Lord Hari with only 2 arms and Lord Brahma without 4 faces.

93) AYAM MAYAANJALI RBADDHO DAYAA SAAGARA SIDDHAYE

YADANUGRAHATHO JANTHUHU CHITHRA SAMSAARA MUKTHI BHAAK.

Meaning- Man is freed from the complex material world due to the grace of the Spiritual Master. I stretch my arms with open palms to appeal to such a Supreme Spiritual Master.

94) SHREEGUROHO PARAMAM ROOPAM VIVEKA CHAKSHU RAGRATHAHA

MANDABHAAGYAA NA PASHYANTHI ANDHAA SSOORYODAYAM.

Meaning- Man who is wisest is able to witness the Supreme form of the Spiritual Master right in front of himself. People who are unfortunate and blind are unable to find the Guru's form which is like the sunrise (meaning- only the wisest witness sunrise, even if unable to witness sunrise with naked eye, one should be up and about before sunrise to welcome it).

95) KULAANAAM KULAKOTEENAAM THAARAKA STHATHRA THATHAKSHANAATH

ATHA STHAM SADGURUM GNYAATHVAA THRIKAALA MABHIVAADAYETH.

Meaning- The true Spiritual Master is One sho grants liberation to people belonging to crores of religions/castes. Therefore it is essential to identify such a Guru and offer prayers to Him during 'thrikalam' ( 3 times of the day- morning, noon and evening. To my knowledge any sloka or mantra when recited punctually at 6 AM- 12 NOON- 6 PM yields powerful results).

96) SHREE NAADHA CHARANA DWANDWAM YASYAAM DISHI VIRAAJITHEY

THASYAAM DISHA NAMASKURYAATH BHAKTHYAA PRATHIDINAM PRIYE.

Meaning- One must offer prayers everyday in the direction shown by the two feet of the Spiritual Master who is the form of Lord Vishnu.

97) SAASHTAANGA PRANIPAATHENA STHUVA NNITHYAM GURUM BHAJETH

BHAJANAATH SDHAIRYA MAAPNOTHI SWASWAROOPAMAYO BHAVETH.

Meaning- One must perform 'sashtanga danda pranamam' (lying on the stomach,  prostrate and erect on the floor like a stick). SASHTANGA- 6 PARTS OF THE BODY- TOES, KNEES, HANDS, CHIN, NOSE AND TEMPLE TOUCHING THE GROUND;  'DANDA PRANAMAM'- 2 PARTS OF THE BODY- KNEES AND FOREHEAD TOUCHING THE GROUND. By prostrating like this one will be able to retain the wisdom of knowledge. He becomes the Supreme form.

98) DORBHYAAM PADBHYAAM CHA JAANUBHYAA MURASAA SHIRASAA DRUSHAA

MANASAA VACHASAA CHETHI PRANAAMO SHTAANGA UCHYATHEY.

Meaning- Ashtanga namaskaram means prostration performed by hands, feet, knees, chest, head, eyes, mind and speech.

99) THASYAI DISHEY SATHATHA MANJALI REYSHA NITHYAM

PRAKSHIPYATHAAM MUKHARITHAI RMADHURAIHI PRASOONAIHI.

JAAGARTHI YATHRA BHAGAVAAN GURUCHAKRAVARTHEE 

VISHWASTHITHI PRALAYA NAATAKA NITHYASAAKSHEE.

Meaning- One must offer prayers akin to fragrant flowers in open palms to the God and Spiritual Master who is the Eternal Witness of the existence of Universe and the drama of Destruction.

100) ABHYASTHAIHI KIMU DEERGHAKAALA VIMALAI RVYAADHIPRADAI RDUSHKARAIHI

PRAANAAYAAMASHATHAI RANEKA KARANAI RDUKHAATHMAKAI RDURJARAIHI

YASMI NNABHYUDITHEY VINASHYATHI BALEE VAAYU SSVAYAM THATHKSHANAATH

PRAAPTHUM THATHSAHAJA SVABHAAVA MANISHAM SEYVEYTHA CHAIKAM GURUM.

Meaning- There are innumerable varieties of 'pranayama' (breathing techniques in 'yoga'). Many of them are general and easy to practice, many of them may result in health complications if they are not practiced correctly, many are not meant to be practiced and require stringent rules to be followed, many of them are impossible to master. Where is the need for hundreds of such 'pranayama' techniques? The knowledge of the Spiritual Master gives us natural control of our most potent life force energy. We must at all times worship such a Spiritual Master who is one with nature.
