It is being compiled by Bhagavatha Mohodaya Sir K.S.Mallikarjuna Bhagavathar (popularly known as Sri Malli Anna in bajan circles) and Bhagavatha Sree Melatur N.Ganesha Bhagavathar.

Gurudeva is one who is creater of all the worlds, one who grants all the wishes of his pupils, one who is having his eye upon shastras and has least interest in accumulation of wealth and is beyond any bad qualities, whose mind is always in tath pada – who is beyond comprehension of all qualities having aim to grant moksha dana to everyone in this world.

I salute thee Oh! Gurudeva! You are an embodiment of knowledge supreme and are wearing Tatvas as garlend, one who is giver of Bukthi and Mukthi to jeevas.

I salute Gurudeva who burns out all the karmas or past deeds of a shishya which has been accumulated over a few births through his gnana, the fire of knowledge, and grants Mukthi to aspirants.

The base of one’s meditation is that of one’s Guru’s swaroopa, and that of his Pooja is to the Lotus feet of Gurudeva, the words of Gurunatha is considered as Mahamantra and to attain Moksha Guru’s grace is the only way open to an aspirant.

Master is one and sundry for an aspirant, who is considered the compound form of all the thrimoorthis and none, is greater than his Guru for all purposes.

None of the devas, kinnaras, gandarvas, pitru devas, yakshas, charanaas, rishis etc donot know the way to worship a Gurudeva.Those who are full of self-praise and proud of one’s own self because of their tapas, vidhya, power etc. becomes the ones like that of the pot in the maker’s wheel and gets

entangled in the potter’s making wheel i.e. always wandering in quest.

Seeing God universally and bliss in ownself, one should enjoy adwaita bhava and this way is uncomparable. If one condemns his Guru he enters hell and remains there for ever.

If one calls his Guru irreverantly or abuses him or wins over him in any battle of wisdom, he becomes a Bramma rakshas i.e. a ghost living in a forest without water or food for ever. If he has been cursed by Rishis, serpants or devas or anybodyelse like Yama, he becomes blessed by the ever flowing grace and protection of Gurudeva.

Even devas, rishis become powerless if they are receipt of Guru’s curse and gets defeated. “Guru” is a two lettered word, which is great mantra with immortality / potency which can lift one to high elevation beyond comprehension of human mind.

Even if one does not have knowledge in sruthis, smiritis etc. but he is an ardent servant of his Guru it is enough to fetch him highest results and leads him to dvelve upon nirakara brahman on his own.

One should medidate upon the Paramatma swaroopa which is beyond the unreachable of all but is remaining evershing jewel at the heart of one’s own self like that of a pure spatika. It shines like a pure spatika as can be seen in a mirror likewise chid akaara bliss can be seen in one’s own self by Guru’s grace.

He is only of the size of one’s own right finger, as is seen in his heart’s place wherefrom bhava takes birth; listen to this calmly as he is without any form or name except he is codified as Brahmam.

keetaabhramaravat tatra dhyaanaam bhavati taadrusham || 118||

Just like the smell of suganda is fragrant from that of karpoor or flowers one its own self by its nature, likewise thro’ the feeling of cold or sweat brahma can be felt always. It should be
meditated upon with one pointedness as that of a keetaka kept by a brahmara.
Gurudhyaanaam tathaa krutvaa svayaam brahmamayo bhavet |

shree paarvatyuvaaca -

pinde muktaa pade muktaa roope muktaa varaanane |
roopaateete tu ye muktaaste muktaa naatra samsreeaya: || 122||

Kundalinishakthi is the pindam, hamsam is known as padam, roopam is the bindhu and Guru is formless which should be noted. Unless one is free from these entirely he is not known as Jeevan muktha.

One should become formless and become one with universal self and then see it then only he would have advaitha anuboothi beyond comprehension of one’s mental power. With that nireekshan – seeing power – having discarded all his bondages one should become aloof without any desires, to such a magnanimous personality peace becomes a bliss to enjoy with.

One should not rejoice over food that he eats and should be happy with whatever comes in his way, whether it is tasty or not and eat it with satisfaction. He becomes a Sarvagna in this very bodily bondage and starts enjoying bliss at ever breath of this life, remains blissfull, mental poise at every second he lives here.

By this way if one leads his life, all his works would be beneficial to his nation, beneficial acts with detachment, which those without knowledge cannot understand. A Gnani of this kind does these with niskama bhavana – without any attachment whatsoever for the betterment of the world he lives in.

One who reads this with devotion, hears it or writes this and gives this to others, it fetches him all the benefits he needs. This Gurugeetha – knowledge of this Gurugeetha – as entold by me is the real penecia for these worldly attachments and hence one should recide this often with devotion.

One’s education, penance, proves becomes powerless unless he does Guru Seva. Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, devas, rishis, kinnaraas, siddhas, charanaas, other saints, does not help him out unless he does Guru Seva. The contemplation of Guru as most powerful is considered the holy theertha and none else is theertha, as every holy water springs reside on the right index finger of his holy feet.

This is the top-most secret which should not be revealed to unqualified persons andshould be kept as a secret for ever. I gave this to you Oh! Devi! As you are my dearmost; hence do not gell to anyone even to tri-moorthis, should be guarded safely.

Abhakte vanchake dhoorte paakhande naastike nare |
manasaapi na vaktavyaa gurugeetaa kadaacana || 181||
samsaara saagara samuddharanaika mantram
brahmaadi deva muni poojita siddha mantram ||
daaridrya du:kha bhavaroga vinaasha mantram
vande mahaa bhayaharam gururaaja mantram || 182||

This should not be told at any cost to those who are not devotees, who are not good in character, one who is a disbelieaver. This is the very potential mantra for crossing over ocean of samsara, which is worshipped by bramaa & other devas, which alleviate poverty of the worshipper of this mantra - to such a powerful maha mantra which wards off fear of everyone – I salute Gururaja mantram.



Thus ends Gurugeetha which is entold in Sree Skanda Maha Purana’s Uttarakhanda by way of dialogues between Lord Mahadeva and Goddess Parvathi devi.
