GURU DATTATREYA OF GANAGAPUR

ANOTHER LEGEND

The story goes that Mahasadhvi Anasuya's fame as chaste woman nonpareil spread to the worlds above. The Trimurthinis hearing it felt floored as they were treated inferior to mortals; a degradation that cannot be stomached; much less heard as the talk gained reverence from one and all. Bitten by the jealousy bug, they brought their heads together to put an end through a strategy to her powers, like purging of the sins of pavana Gangamata by sprinkling of water, commanding the movements of planets with a mere utterance, boiling the pieces of steel grains into edible luscious tiny soft flakes etc. They requested their lords to dislodge her from the pedestal by depriving her chastity. Somehow! What a descent! How powerful art thou 0 power of jealousy grown too powerful to overpouring the super powers! The loyal Trimurthis set out at once on the sacred mission of polluting chaste Anasuya. Somehow!! They changed themselves into brahmins and stood near the portal of Atri's hermitage with bowls, uttering Bikshandehi.
