Datta treya Jayanti
Bhagvan Sri Datta treya is a Hindu deity encompassing the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, collectively known as Trimurti. The name Dattatreya can be divided into two words – “Datta” (meaning given) and “Atreya” referring to the sage Atri, his physical father
Lord Dattatreya was born to Sage Atri and Anasuya because of the boon she received from the Trinity
Sri Dattatreya bhagvan is an incarnation of the Sanatana “Guru principle” in the universe referred in the ancient Indian wisdom as Dattatreya.
Athri and Anasuya are said to be the parents of Dattatreya in the Hindu Puraanas holy scriptures of Sanatana Dharma.
Anasuya the holy divine mother
Anasuya in Sanskrit means: “not Asuya”. Asuya means malice. Dattatreya is said to be born to Anasuya, the Mother Anasuya, is said to be the state of no malice ( no jealousy).
and the Athri, the Father, is said to be the pure consciousness
This is the essential principal relating to the state of Dattatreya, that is: pure consciousness expressed through equated qualities. He is beyond the Trinity but can equally express through the Trinity. He is therefore creative like the creator Brahma, preserver like Vishnu, and can also be the destroyer like Siva.
As pure consciousness he can be like the Divine Mother and as Pure Existence he can be the God Absolute. He is potent with all possibilities. That is how he is conceived by the seers of ancient times, as “all in one and one in all”.
Athreya means in Sanskrit “the son of Athri”. Athri is one of the 7 seers principles of creation. Athri also means in Sanskrit “not three”. The one who came down from that which is not three is called Athreya.
That which is beyond the three, as said before, is A-thri, the pure consciousness is called Athri.
Datta in Sanskrit means: “The One that is donated”. Thus, that which is not three, is donated trough the three into all the planes of creation to help the beings to find the Path back to Truth.
That which is not three means: “that which is beyond the three”. the pure consciousness beyond,the three qualities of satva raja & tama gunas
. It is the divinity in every being. Dattatreya is thus the principle, which exists in all as the Teacher principle, as the friend, as the guide that leads one unto one’s own source of Existence. Dattatreya is an Eternal Principle.
Dattatreya also exists in a form in all planes. Just like the World Teacher is the principle that guides the beings of this globe, Dattatreya is also a principle of truth & etenral wisdom that incarnates as per the time and need in any plane of existence.
Various Hindu sects worship him differently. In the Nath tradition, Dattatreya is recognized as an Avatar or incarnation of Shiva and as the Adi-Guru (First Teacher) of the Adinath Sampradaya of the Nathas. Although Dattatreya was at first a “Lord of Yoga” exhibiting distinctly Tantric traits, he was adapted and assimilated into the more devotional (Sanskrit: bhakti) Vaishnavite ; while still worshiped by millions of Hindus, he is approached more as a benevolent god than as a teacher of the highest essence of Indian Vedanta thoughts.
Lord Sri Dattatreya is credited as the author of the Tripura Rahasya given to Parasurama, a treatise on Advaita Vedanta. He is specially worshipped on this holy Datta Jayanti.
