GANAGAPUR - DATTATREYA

There was the great danger that Atri might dislodge them from their positions if he chose to do so. The tapobala of Anasuya, his wife was equally great. She understood and practised the principles of dharma as few others did. The couple was thus likely to be a formidable rival to the rods and hence Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh got together. If some defect could be found out in the behaviour of the two, or if some situation could be contrived where the couple or either of them would be made to behave in contradiction of dharma, all the great punya accumulated by them would be set at naught.

After long deliberation the trio decided upon a stratagem.There is another story of how Atri and Anasuya got Datta. Atri was a great tapasvin.

The power of his tapa was great and it increased as each day passed, to the great discomfort of the gods. There was the great danger that Atri might dislodge them from their positions if he chose to do so. The tapobala of Anasuya, his wife was equally great. She understood and practised the principles of dharma as few others did. The couple was thus likely to be a formidable rival to the Rods and hence Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh got together.
