GURU DATTATREYA OF GANAGAPUR

Ah! fate what sports could thou demonstrate! Givers turned beggars!! somehow!!! Due to the prevalent custom, Sadhvi Anasuya invited them for food. Just before serving, they with one voice laid a dishonourable condition - she should serve them naked. Woeful! Awfully woeful!! Being the gem of a women of impeccable chastity approaching undressed she sprinkled her lord's Padodakam! Look! the Trimurthis turned into toddlers and started crying. She suckled them each with milk of divine knowledge. Atri was surprised to finding the infants playing on the lap of his wife. Seeing all what happened with his inner eye; he felt elated when the Vanquished Trimurtinis appealed to the mercy of Matrumurthi Anasuya for Patibiksha. She restored the three to their original form. Before disappearing, the Trio blessed the couple with a son, partaking their amsas represented by three heads. And he was called Dattatreya and fulfilled the purpose of his incarnation - building of a new mission of Dharma on the ruins of ruinous sampradayas prevalent then. Though this account differs with the first one, the ultimate end fulfilled Lord Mahavishnu's birth in the world. Some other legends have many anecdotes, but they converge at this point.
