Datta Jayanti- pious day on which the unimaginable God is given to humanity in human form

Even if the pleasures approach you for enjoyment, if you sacrifice those pleasures, the poison of dog or Maya gets pacified

Sacrifice of pleasures is divinity and enjoyment of pleasures is death


Today is the festival of “Datta Jayanti”, which means that this is the pious day on which the unimaginable God is given to humanity in human form. Today, the tradition is to bite the bread and throw it to a dog. By this, it is said that the poison in the teeth of dog gets pacified. What is the meaning of this? Even if the pleasures approach you for enjoyment (bread approached your mouth for eating), if you sacrifice those pleasures, the poison of dog or Maya gets pacified. If the dog with poisonous teeth bites you, you will become mad. Similarly, when Maya bites you, you become mad. This tradition preaches you that sacrifice of pleasures is divinity and enjoyment of pleasures is death. You are involved in the worldly affairs like a mad man not knowing that he is mad. This is the message of Datta Jayanti.

(Swami sang the following song composed by Him on the spot.)


O soul! Abode of God is far still,
More and more far still, O Soul! (Chorus)

Kill your eyes, Kill your ears today,
Kill your tongue, these are enemies,
These senses attracted by the world
Disturb your mind fixed on Datta.

Your goal is to reach My abode,
But, your effort is quite opposite,
You want to lit fire on the sticks
But, you drench these with water!

Whatever you hear, whatever you see,
Whatever you speak, it is your blood,
If your blood is flowing towards Me,
I become yours, think well, think well.

Don’t bend to traditions, be firm always,
Follow the true path after analysis only,
Always see Me only, always hear Me only,
Always speak about Me only in the world.

Those are mad people, who call you as mad,
The scene in this world gets reversed there,
These mad people will cry and cry in hell,
Who is mad? It is decided in proper time.

Control your senses, do sharp analysis,
Let your intelligence be active always,
Your love to Me proved in your practice,
Without desire for any fruit is the path.

Salvation means detachment from world,
It is a consequence of attachment to Me,
Don’t try for detachment, always try
To attach yourself to Me everywhere.

Even if you control your mind, the senses drag the mind towards worldly items. The senses are like bottles of wine that drag your mind. If you are controlled by your senses, it is impossible to reach Me. In spite of this, if you think that you can reach Me, it is only deceiving yourself. Don’t postpone spiritual effort for tomorrow. There is no tomorrow. Only today is the truth. Yesterday will not come back. Today, now itself, get yourself attached to Me.
