🔱Datta Jayanti - दत्त जयन्ती

Datta Jayanti Date: Saturday, 14 December 2024
Datta Jayanti

According to the Hindu calendar in the Indian state of Maharashtra, Datta Jayanti, the full moon day (Purnima) of the month of Margashirsha, is celebrated with great fervor as the incarnation/birthday of Dev Dattatreya. Bhagwan Dattatreya is a syncretic deity and is considered to be an incarnation of the Trimurti i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh.

Dattatreya, the devotee Vatsal, who is very kind to the devotee, on remembering the devotee, becomes very happy at him. That is why they are also called Smritigami and Smritimatranuganta. The famous Datta sect in South India considers Bhagwan Datta as its main deity.

Dattatreya was the son of sage Atri and his wife Anasuya. Devi Anasuya is considered to be the best among virtuous women. At the time of exile, Mata Sita also took the blessings of Devi Anasuya and received education about the pativrata dharm. Know Dattatreya Janm Katha in detail!
