On Dattatreya Jayanthi i listed to the beautiful chantings
Dhigambara Dhigambara Shree Paadha Vallabha dhigambara
I still remember my visit to Datta paar mandhir which is mentioned in sai satcharitra ( nana goes here ) near the banks of Godavari river in kopergoan on the way to shirdi .
I did abishekam to Lord Ganesha, Mahalakshmi, Shiva, Sai paadhukas, Saraswathi and the beautiful Shirdi Sai baba and Lord Dattatreya.
From the book Shree Paadha Shree Vallabha Charitramrutam
Life of saint Shree Paadha shree vallabha
First avatar of lord dattatreya.
The holy book Shree Paadha Shree Vallabha Charitramrutam says the incident where Shree Paadha shree vallabha who incarnated as first avatar of Datta in 13 century requests Hanuman to take avatar as a sadguru.
Few months back i did below lemon lamps pooja to shirdi saibaba and lord dattatreya.
Hanuman says i am only a servant of God. How do i deserve to take avatar as a Guru. Shree paadha says
“Hanuma though you served Rama, you are a perfect celibate and you have to take incarnation as a sadguru and yours will be samartha Sadguru incarnation”
Shree paadha shree vallabha says
After this avatar as shree paadha, i will take avatar as Narasimha saraswati . Then i will be in tapas in forest for 300 years. then i will have a 3rd avatar as Swami samartha. When the time of my samadhi comes, i will incarnate in you and you will be known famous as Sainath.
While telling this Lord Hanuman sees a miracle . Mother Anusuya is having a child and this moment where Shree paadha blesses Hanuman to incarnate as sadguru came to be known as Datta Jayanthi.
Well, the real Dattatreya jayanthi is celebrated all over the world by datta devotees as the birth of Lord Dattatreya. I am writing only what i read in the book shree paadha shree vallabha charitramrutam and i believe it as a sacred book.
For all of you sai devotees, sai is incarnation of any god you think he is. Its in your mind set.
Since today is Datta Jayanthi, i wish to post this message.
