GURU CHARITRA: The Two Incarnations of Lord Dattatreya
GURU CHARITRA: The Two Incarnations of Lord Dattatreya
Description
About the Book:

The Dattatreya Sampradaya has kept alive the eternal principles of Truth, Righteousness, peace, Divine Love and Non-Violence in Bharat for thousands of years. It extends back in time to the very beginning of the human race and over thousands of years this Sampradaya produced other Sampradayas like the Shiva and Vishnu Sampradayas to name only two. As the other Sampradayas kept increasing in number the Dattatreya Sampradaya was largely forgotten by the laity in virtually the whole of Northern Bharat.

Lord Krishna revived the Datta Sampradya by telling Uddhava the teachings of Lord Dattatreya to King Alark and Yadu. He then gave Uddhava Darshan of Lord Dattatreya. This is recounted in the Srimad Bhagvat. Once again the data Sampradaya became the preserve of sanyasis, as civil society was devastated by the Mahabharat war.

The revival of Datta Sampradaya in the last millennium was largely due to Sri Sripad Sri Vallabha and Sri Narasimha Saraswati. The Guru Charitra is the biography of these two incarnations of Lord Dattatreya. This text has been used for the last 300 years to revive our lost Vedic heritage. Besides many lost rituals were revived by Sri Narasimha Saraswati an dare recounted in this text.

This book will he useful for people who wish to review part of our Vedic heritage dealing with Prayers and rituals, as well as people practicing Bhakti Yoga.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
