      Lord Datta is essentially a teacher. His very nature is the nature
      of a teacher. If you study the nature of teacher, you have
      understood the very nature of Datta. The aim of mother, father and
      teacher is only the welfare of the child. But, mother and father may
      become lenient due to their blind intensive love on the child. But,
      the love of a teacher (Guru) is never blind and is always aimed at
      the welfare of student. The love of father and mother may sometimes
      spoil the welfare of the child. Therefore, Datta treats all the
      living beings in the creation as His students and not as His issues.
      Therefore, the teacher is more than father and mother.

      The Lord created fruits for both good and bad actions. Why should He
      create a fruit for an action? Let there be acts without fruits. The
      child does mischief, but the mother or father does not punish. In
      that case, there is no fruit for that action. Similarly, let the
      Lord not punish our sins. If you expect like this, the answer is
      that the Lord does not behave like father or mother but behaves only
      as a teacher. The child gets spoiled if the mischief is tolerated.
      We are seeing this in the world. The teacher will never tolerate the
      spoiling of the child and therefore, He will not tolerate the
      mischief.

      God uses the fruits of your sins as punishments and the only aim is
      your welfare. This is the reason why Datta is always called as Guru
      Datta. Therefore, guru or teacher is greatest. The results of bad
      deeds are used as punishments to transform and uplift the student.
      Therefore, the result of a bad deed is very very useful for the
      transformation of the soul. The results of your good deeds are given
      to you just as a relaxation between two punishments. When He
      punishes systematically, He is called as Yama. In the interval when
      you receive happiness, He is Indra. Sometimes He gives severe
      punishments with roaring sound. He is called as Kala Bhairava at
      that time. The hell is the special equipment for punishment. The aim
      of the punishment is only the real welfare.
