Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya reply to King Yadu,

Guru No. 2 of Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya

Air: Lord Dattatreya replied I observed that air is pure as well odorless in itself. It blows on both good as well as foul-smelling things without any discrimination or preference. Though it momentarily seems to take on the smell of its surroundings, in a short while, it reveals its pristine quality. From this I learned that a spiritual aspirant should live in the world, unaffected by the dualities of life like joy and sorrow and by the objects of the senses. He should keep his heart’s feeling and his speech unpolluted by vain objects. As I have learned all this by observing it, air is my second guru.

Will be continued

A great attempt by someone

A person who translates the words of Swami Dattatreya or any other Mahatma's is definitely doing a great job.
I am highly thankful to him.
Let our motto be translate the sayings, so that others are greatly benefitted.
