Benefits of Chanting the Name of Shree Dattatreya Prabhu

Benefits of Chanting the Name of Shree Dattatreya Prabhu
🙏 Dandvat Pranam 🙏

In the recent times, since spiritual practice and the rituals of shraddha/bhagti bhawna (Rites for the deceased) are not performed as before, most people face problems due to the subtle-bodies of ancestors. Only evolved individuals can advise if there is a possibility of a problem in the future or if an existing problem is due to the subtle-bodies of deceased ancestors.
To prevent problems or to overcome a mild problem, chant ‘Shri Gurudev Datta’ daily for one to two hours. At other times, to prevent problems arising out of destiny and for spiritual progress, an average individual or seeker in the primary stage should chant the Name of his Kuladevata (Family Shri) as much as is possible.
If you are not fortunate enough to be guided by an evolved individual, then inferring that inability to find a suitable marriage partner, marital disharmony, inability to conceive, miscarriages, giving birth to a premature child, giving birth to a retarded or handicapped child, deaths in childhood etc. are problems which could be due to subtle-bodies of deceased ancestors, undertake spiritual practice as advised ahead.
If the problem is moderate in nature, chant ‘Shri Gurudev Datta’ along with the Name of your Kuladevata for two to four hours daily. Also, go to a Datta temple every Thursday and perform seven circumambulations, and chant one to two malas of ‘Shri Gurudev Datta’ in the temple. Do this for about a year. After this, chant three malasof ‘Shri Gurudev Datta’ everyday.
By chanting the Name of Shri Datta in Pitrupaksha(The dark fortnight of the Hindu lunar month of Bhadrapad, when rites are performed for the deceased ancestors), the onward sojourn of the ancestors is faster. Hence, during this period, chant for atleast six hours (or seventy-two malas) daily.
Tirath SthalMahurgad, Maharashtra (MAHURGUD) is the famous place in the Mahanubhava Panth. It is the birth place of Lord Shree Dattatreya. This place is visited by thousands of Pilgrims throughout the year. Mahurgad is the one of the most important place in Daily rituals of Prabhu Shree Dattatreya #DandvatPranam

Shree Dattatreya, the guru to the entire universe – Vishwa Guru - SMARTHRUGAAMI
🙏 Dandvat Pranam 🙏

Behind all names and forms is the one nameless, formless Essence. Behind all governors is the one Supreme Governor of governors. Behind all lights is the one Light Of lights. Behind all sounds, there is the soundless Supreme Silence. Behind all teachers is the one Supreme Guru of Gurus and that is only Jagad Guru SHREE DATTATREYA.
The two letters of DA and TTA means “DATTA” nama smarana, Datta nama sankeerthan, Datta nama dhyaana only will give Paramardha to every life. He is “BHUKTHI, MUHTHI PRADAATHA” which means, he will always sanction Sukha in this Loka and also in Paraloka. . Hence the Datta sadhaks can lead the superb Materialistic and Spiritualistic life. Miraculous growth and life settlement of Children/Generations of Datta Sadhaks can be seen . This is Permanant (SHAASWATHA) , True (SATHYA) and Happy (AANANDA).
Prabhu Dattatreya tatwa is AVYAKTHA, NIRGUNA, NIRAAKAARA, NIRANJANA, NISHKRIYA, PARABRAHMA, SAGUNA SWAROOPA and it is SHREEMANNARAAYANA, PARAMESHA TATWA. The Upanishads are clearly telling that, “DATTA VEEJASTHAM JAGATH SARVAM”. This means that total Universe is Prabhu Datta swaroopa. Nothing is beyond him.
Lord Dattatreya, is the important Diety in the Indian Spiritual Panorama and very important in MAHANUBHAV. His personality integrates the elements of the three Gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. Shree Dattatreya is also the guru to the entire universe – Vishwa Guru.
He taught:
  • 1. Srividya to Parashurama
  • 2. Dattavidya to Brahma
  • 3. Adhyatma Vidya to Prahlada
  • 4. Yoga Vidya to Vasishta and
  • 5. Atma Vidya to Kartaviryarjuna

He also incarnated as Sri Sripada Vallabha and Sri Nrsimha Saraswati in the age of Kali to uphold Dharma. The trinity represent his three faces, his body is pure chit, the six branches of knowledge are his six hands, the four dogs are the four Vedas, the cow is Dharma, universal peace is the Oudumbara tree and the great incarnation of Brahman, complete with sixteen kalas, which is a personification of the knowledge of the Self – is the unfathomable Murti of Sri Dattatreya. Sri Dattareya is an ocean of compassion. By merely remembering his name, one earns his grace. Hence he is called “SMARTHRUGAAMI” – one who immediately appears to the devotee who remembers the Lord. A sage called Dalaadana once wanted to test the truth in this statement and remembered Dattatreya.
It is my very nature to reach that person who remembers me, instantly. Whether with devotion or not, if a man remembers me sincerely, I will instantly reach him and grant his desires – This is Shree Dattareya’s sacred promise to us, his children.
Also, the other unique quality of Sri Dattareya is that he is – BHAKTA KEERTHI VIVARDHANA – he is more interested in showcasing the glory of his devote than of his own. This is yet another example of his immeasurable grace towards his devotees.
The Upanishads Avadhutopanishad and Jaabaaldarshanopanishad mention that the philosophy is given by Shri Dattatreya. Upanishads and Puranas are openly telling and Guru avatharas are guiding us to recite Datta Nama Smaran. Dattaguru is always ready on his toes to reach those who remember him and shower his unbounded blessings on them. Come forward and recognize him and join his mission by serve him in the propagation of Datta Nama to make your materialistic life easy and create your path to reach the stage of SALVATION by glorifying the Glory of Lord Dattatreya.
