According to the ancient scriptures, Lord Dattatreya is the Cosmic Lord of Yoga and the sum and essence of the Cosmic Principle of the Teacher.

Guiding and Protecting

The Hierarchy of Teachers Dattatreya has transmitted the science of yoga to the various planes of existence and he presides over all yogic activities, anywhere in creation. He helps all those who have embarked upon the path of yoga. It is essential that the students of yoga find their way to the Lord of Yoga and hence this induction into this cosmic dimension of yoga.

Dattatreya guides and protects the beings through his Hierarchy of Teachers on the various planets of our system. All the teachers in the solar system are but his watchdogs in the related planes. So he has his dogs everywhere in the solar system. These are his teachers.

The Lord of Sirius

The Dog Star Dattatreya guides from Sirius, which is called the Dog Star, and it is from Sirius the teachings have come. Dattatreya generally resides in Sirius. In Sanskrit, Sirius is known as Sarameya Mandala. Sarama means a dog. In Vedic astronomy Sirius is known as the sphere of dogs. Dogs are known for their ever watchful awareness.

Presiding in Sirius, Lord Dattatreya transmits his energies of synthesis onto our planet. The Hierarchy of the spiritual teachers on Earth, including the World Teacher, is guided by his energy. The World Teacher Trust (WTT) understands the subtle connection of the Hierarchy of Himalayas, of Nilagiris, and of Sirius.

Dattatreya, Krishna, Maitreya

Krishna At the time when Lord Krishna was about to leave his body, about 5000 years ago, he chose Lord Maitreya as the World Teacher for this time cycle. And he gave direction to form the first triangle of Teachers through which the present Hierarchy manifested. According to the teachings of the East, Krishna is no different from Dattatreya. Only that, Krishna has come and has returned. Lord Dattatreya has come to stay with us as long as the system remains.

Lord Maitreya, the World Teacher, is worshipped by some Christian as Christ. He is in direct connection with Lord Dattatreya. To him Dattatreya is the teacher. He is the energy of Sirius as described in the teachings of Master Djwhal Khul.

The Hierarchy on the planet is guided by the Hierarchy on Sirius. We relate to our Hierarchy because they bring the relation to the Hierarchy of Sirius. The local post office is but a representative of the central post office. The Hierarchy of our Earth is the Great White Lodge and that of Sirius is the Great Grand White Lodge.

As we know from the teachings of the Masters of Wisdom, the Great Bear constitutes the father to our solar system, Pleiades constitute the mother for our system, and Sirius constitutes the teacher to our system. Lord Dattatreya is the Lord of Sirius.

The Energy of Synthesis

The Energy of Synthesis

The energy of synthesis, which came from most high circles via Sirius and the comet Halley into our planet at the beginning of 20th century, was eventually transmitted through Master CVV. He is from the ashram of Rishi Agastya, Master Jupiter of the Nilagiri Hills. Lord Dattatreya is also the Master for Agastya. Essentially the energy of synthesis, which gives the fresh impulse for the Aquarian Age, is the energy coming from Sirius.

Lord Dattatreya is deeply in tune with the energy of the World Teacher Trust, in the sense it is the chief energy of the World Teacher Trust.
