It is the sole secret of success in spiritual discipline.

24 Guru of Dattatreya : Nature is the Great Teacher

So she went into the kitchen and started beating the rice. Similarly, the soul is not affected by changes in the body. Path to vattatreya should be carried by every one individually. The sage is like water because he is free from all impurities, gentle in nature and while speaking he creates a beautiful vibration like the flowing of water.

Dqttatreya became hopeless and ultimately out of frustration gave her plans for earning money via this means. The Snake The snake lives alone and avoids other creatures. This will help the sadhak keep his awareness totally in every moment, unconditioned by yesterdays. Just like the sky the soul pervades all animate and inanimate objects yet it remains unaltered, single and steady. The sunflower which blooms with sunrise closes with the sunset. Just as FIRE burns bright, so also the sage should be glowing with the splendor of hi sknowledge and Tapas.

There was no further noise though she continued husking.

The twenty-fourth guru was the wasp, ‘bhramara keelaka’. It lightly blows air over the worm time and again. In order to experience Brahmanthat is, in order to turn away from Maya The great illusiontowards Brahmanonly one Guru is enough. So too, the wisdom of self-realization rejects the manifest forms and properties of things as illusion and realizes their one original essence as itself.

The sun brought to his mind qualities of egoless-ness and omnipresence. The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality.

It is believed that Datta Guru had been existing on Earth from Krutha yuga. The answer to this is that to attain Self-realisation only one Guru is sufficient. It does not feel threatened if no food is available for sometime and inspite of having the strength does not make use of it.

Sky carries many objects in it like The SunPlanets and Galaxies but it datgatreya is untouched by them. Pingala The seventeenth guru was a courtesan called Pingala. A python eats whatever comes in its way and satisfy, whether it dagtatreya sufficient or not, bitter or sweet etc. Her bangles made a lot of noise.
