Lord Shri Dattatreya
In Sanskrit, ‘Datta’ means ‘given’, and whatever is already given to all of us is Grace. Lord Shri Dattatreya is the universal Master, Nature and Grace. He is the trinity of Lord Shri Brahma, Shri Vishnu and Shri Mahesh; creation, sustenance and transformation. The human brain has three sections, which correlate to the above concept. So, devotion to Lord Shri Dattatreya works on the individual’s brain. Also, the pituitary and pineal, the master glands, are just in the area between the eyebrows where the spiritual third eye centre is located.
In Kaliyuga, that is the present time, Lord Shri Dattatreya is the saviour and He offers worldly prosperity and spiritual consciousness. He is also ‘smartrugami’, which means that one only needs to remember Him for contact. He is like Mother Nature, offering complete protection and nourishment.
Lord Shri Dattatreya is the son of the Seer Atri and his wife Anasuya, symbolizing friendliness and freedom from comparison, jealousy and demands. He is accepted as the first world Master from whom all the branches of meditation and tantra have emerged. The Gods only control specific dimensions and energies, while the Master is beyond, and even the Gods seek His blessings. Lord Shri Dattatreya, the Master, is the main deity for all those spiritual aspirants longing for Moksha/Nirvana. The texts and musical compositions have been specifically selected to suit the energy of Lord Shri Dattatreya, the universal Master, and the third eye centre.
