They are, 5 gnana indriyas 1. Smell nose5 karma indriyas 1. Getting of avyaktha from these 24 amshas is YOGA. To tell this truth to us, Puranas are telling that Dattaguru is having 24 gurus. Loads of difficulties are increasing dartatreya by day in our life, in spite of all our efforts.

Life has series of problems such as poverty, disease, broken relationships, unhappy marriages, loneliness, depression, and prosecution and so on and so forth, besides, global suffering and natural disasters like earth quakes, floods, famines and tsunamis and the like. Some of them are very difficult to solve. It may not be so easy to get a right Spiritual Master for all to show the right path, either.

Sanātana Dharma: Lord Dattatreya and His 24 Gurus

She teaches to give them the best, remembering that their acts are normal and natural from their standpoint. Like mountains and trees, one should devotedly dedicate self to the welfare of other living beings. And it blows on both sweet and foul-smelling things without any discrimination or preference. Though it dattatrya seems to take on the smell of its surroundings, in a kf while, it reveals its pristine quality. Spiritual aspirants should live in the world of dualities with the same spirit.

May it be Joy or sorrow the receiving should be the same way. And just as the air gives soothing feeling when it blows normally one should keep their mind cool unaffected by the external happenings so that their actions also will be soothing.


The Sky The soul is also like the sky, which is omnipresent. Sometimes the sky or space gets thickly overcast, or filled with dust or smoke. At sunrise and during night, it apparently takes on different colors. But in fact, it ever retains its colorless self, and it is never touched or stained by anything.

Sky carries many objects in it like The SunPlanets and Galaxies but it always is untouched by them. The soul adttatreya never be affected, by the material body contamination. Like sky, the Soul is omnipresent, all-pervading, and dttatreya in nature. The inner emptiness of sky dattztreya. Water It quenches the thirst of every creature. While it thus serves all living beings, it is never proud of itself. On the other hand, it humbly seeks the lowliest of places.

Water teaches the quality of purity. The sage should be like water free from all impurities and his speech should be as dattatrey as water flow and he should be down to earth without feeling proud. The Fire The element of Fire is present in all beings which possess ot heat. Fire burns everything by its flames and is untouched by impurities. Even though it does not have a specific shape it shows the shape of the object containing dattatrreya. In other words he should burn others sins to ash with his power irrespective of the giver.

The Moon The moon waxes and vanes in a month continuously. After every 15 days gurks is either a full moon day or a new moon day. This characteristic teaches many things. The sage also should be untouched by the circumstances he is facing externally. Waxing and vaning should be to the body and not to the soul. The Sun The Sun is seen differently in different objects but the actual existence is only one. Sun illuminates its surroundings and gives life datratreya Earth. The sage should illuminate his surroundings by the flow of his knowledge like the sun.

Even hurus he is giving life to many he should not get attached to worldly relationships. Pigeon Once there lived two pigeons in a nest with their three little siblings.

One day when both the birds went out to fetch food a bird hunter threw net on the nest and caught the siblings. Seeing this both the pigeons jumped into the net and got caught.

This shows love and affection. If a sage is got caught in worldly relationshipshe gyrus never try for salvation.

Python A Python does not go around for its food. It sits at one place waiting patiently for its food to come its way. A Sage should not run after worldly pleasures. He should sit at one place steadily and meditate. He should learn to be contended with what he gets in his life. Honey Bee A Honey Bee gathers nectar from many flowers without hurting them. It swallows the required amount for ddattatreya and converts the remaining into sweet Honey and stores in a bee hive.


He should transfer the essence of it as and when required. He drives the bees away and gathers honey.

Dattatreya after the sage gathered enough knowledge and is distributing the same to his fellow beings when Lord Yama gatherer comes, the sage should be ready to forego everything and be ready to leave this world. Bird Of Prey Once a small bird was carrying its food to its nest. Seeing this a bigger bird chased it. The small bird tried a lot to escape but had to surrender to the mighty bird and left its food.

At the same time it does not shrink during the summer. It stays calm and peaceful unrevealing the existence of pearls as well as the wild animals in its stomach.

The sage also should datttareya calm and peaceful. He should not be overwhelmed by joy dttatreya should not be depressed by sorrow. He need not show everyone his knowledge and prove his greatness. The Moth The Moth is attracted by the fire and jumps into it and gets burnt. It does not even think before jumping.

24 Gurus of Dattatreya – Gurus and subordinate Gurus – Hindu Janajagruti Samiti

The human being even after been given the ultimate wisdom and a great opportunity to take the path of salvation guurs not utilize it in a right way. He gets attracted to worldly pleasures and gets into the cycle of birth and death. Elephant In order to catch a male elephant tusker first a stuffed female elephant is prepared and it is put visible to the tusker.

Seeing this the male elephant thinks that hurus can reach the female and runs into the trap pit dug in its way and gets caught. One should win over the feeling of LUST. Else they get caught in its trap and cannot come out of it to take the right path. Deer Deers are fond of music. While catching them the hunters play a melodious music and lure them. Passion and sensual desires become a daytatreya to spiritual progress. Fish Fish does burus have control on its tongue. As a result it runs for a small bait and gurhs death.

The sage should have control on his tongue in terms of taste as well as speech. If the tongue is under control all other sense organs will be under control. And one should not leave his own self.

But the entire night she waited for him in vain. Finally she realized that she was neglecting the soul and wasting dahtatreya time for external joy and went to bed. One should never expect any material benefit from other person.

Temptation for seeking an object from others is the seed of misery and frustration. The Child A child is always happy and joyful. He is not touched by the three gunas like satva, rajo and tamo guna.

The child is free from worldly desires.
