GURU DATTATREYA OF GANAGAPUR

NARASHIMA SARASWATI

It began at Karanja, one of the famous towns in Berar. There was born to a pious brahmin a fair boy, although he looked extremely loving and lovable, was dumb, right from birth. 'Om' was the only sound emanating from his mouth for everything he needed for eating or living. He performed a good number of miracles, like changing an iron hammer into a gold one. The worried parents were consoled with his gestures and were assured that he would talk only after the thread ceremony. As said, during the ceremony, to the utter amazement of all, he recited the Vedas and the six sastras. He was named Narahari, perhaps, for his formidable activities. Later, when he wanted to take up sanyasa and go on a pilgrimage, his parents disuaded on the ground, they had no other issue. He assured them with one, and after the birth of brother, he left for desayatra. His first stage was Kasi, where his intellectual powers feasted the great pundits and he was asked to teach sanyasamarga by a learned pandit called Sri Krishna Saraswati. On completion he was honoured with the title of Nrisimha Saraswati. He toured several other centres of pilgrimage. Honours were heaped upon him wherever he went.
