Happy Dattatreya Jayanti | Purify Mind and Soul
We wish all our readers, followers, devotees – a Happy Dattatreya Jayanti.
Dattatreya Jayanti (also Datta Jayanti) is the birthday celebration of Lord Dattatreya. It is considered as a holy and spiritual day in the Hindu religion. It is being celebrated on the 2nd of December in 2017. The birthday is determined per the appearance of the full moon day (Purnima) of the 9th lunar month (Margashirsha). In the Lord’s name itself ‘Dattatreya’, ‘Atreya’ part comes from his father’s name Atri (a Vedic Sage). Jayanti means birthday celebration. It is celebrated mainly in India and Nepal.
About Lord Dattatreya: He is regarded as one of the Lords of Yoga. His three heads (also appears in many pictures, videos on ancient Vedic history and idols in temples) represent the 3 Gunas (Trigunas) meaning –
Sattva (harmony, purity, knowledge)
Rajas (anger, ego, activity, passion)
Tamas (darkness, ignorance, inertia)
In images, you will also see his 6 arms, and is accompanied by a cow and a few dogs; the 3 heads combine-represent the divine qualities of the Lords Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva. His parents were Atri Rishi (as also stated in Para above) and Anusaya (mother). Atri Rishi was born of Lord Bhrahma (one of the Hindu Gods). He upheld qualities in teachings like truth, freedom from jealously, penance, Tyaga (sacrifice) etc. Regarding the birth of Lord Datta and his mother, a depicted video can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAupeGRmJEw for reference.
Apparently, and is interesting to know that tomorrow, the 3rd of December also happens to be Super-moon; which per Astronomy is regarding when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. The moon appears 14% larger-closer and much brighter (source NASA says 30% brighter, per perigee) as it gets closest to Earth in distance at this time-date.
