Statements of Assurance

If you take Me as a support, I will preach you the path of dharma and also path of karma. I will always protect you from a downfall.

Connecting with Srīpāda

Whoever it may be, if he sincerely chants My name ‘Srīpāda Vallabha Digambarā, Datta Digambarā!’ I will be easily accessible and bring all auspicious developments.

Spiritual Aspiration

Any living creature can attain the grace of Srīpāda only after leaving the darkness of inertia and overcoming the mental wavering of bad arguments, doubts, and distorted interpretations.

The Greatness of Srīpāda

This incarnation is formless but appearing as a human form, attributeless but appearing as one with attributes; a comprehensive form of all deities but looks like a single deity.

The Twelve Statements of Assurance Connecting with Srīpāda The Greatness of Srīpāda
Srīpāda Srīvallabha Lord Dattatreya is the cosmic principle of the Teacher, the Guru. He is the teacher of the teachers. He is teaching and enlightening the beings on all planes of existence. The teachings of Srīpāda are simple and profound. Here are some extracts of his teachings.

  • To experience My power, you must first become a rigorous spiritual seeker. Then only you will experience My power, compassion, affection, protection, and redemption from sin.
  • If man wants to get rid of the pangs of poverty, or get released from sinful acts, he must have purity of mind, speech, and action. Whatever is thought in mind should come up in speech and whatever is conveyed in speech should be found in action.
  • The devotee would get longevity by offering food to people. It means that much quantity of food sufficient for some more years for him, is generated in an imperceptible manner for the devotee. Not only that. When they are satisfied the vibrations of gratification and yoga relating to peace, strength, satisfaction, and wealth would emanate indefinitely.
  • God’s name should always be retained in heart while discharging duties, and those duties should be in accordance with dharma.
  • God is not pleased with externals. He is pleased with the inner feelings. Inner feeling is an eternal power.
  • He is satisfied only with your inner feelings. He is not concerned with the family background, lineage, or other material matters. Even if a low caste person gives Datta-prasāda it has to be received with devotion. If disrespect is shown, they will be subjected to hardships and losses.
  • Any living creature can attain the grace of Srīpāda only after leaving the darkness of inertia and overcoming the mental wavering of bad arguments, doubts, and distorted interpretations. This is the secret.
  • If Srīpāda is worshipped for a mandala (40 days) with care and devotion or if His hagiography is read devotedly during that period, all desires will be fulfilled.
  • There are many ways in this Kali Yuga to get salvation. Among them chanting the name of God is the easiest one. When the sacred name dances on the tongue, a habit of speaking sacred words develops. When the name is being chanted, the mind is concentrated on God and the mind also gets sanctified. Through this, one gets motivated to perform virtuous deeds.
  • I am Datta! Whatever gods or goddesses you worship, all those belong to Me only!
