Story of Dattatreya Jayanti
According to the legend, once Narad ji praised Maharishi Atri Muni’s wife Anusuya in front of Mata Sati, Goddess Lakshmi and Maa Saraswati. After listening to the words of Naradji, the ladies asked their husbands Brahma, Vishnu, Shankar to test Anusuiya’s pativrata religion. All the three gods reached the ashram in the guise of sages to take the examination of Anusuya.
Child became tridev by the power of mother Anusuya
In the absence of Atri Muni, the three deities asked Mother Anusuiya to become naked and give alms. Sati Anusuiya understood that he is not an ordinary monk. The goddess kept all the three sages with her after making them six months old babies with the power of her penance. On the other hand, all the three goddesses got upset due to separation from their husbands, then Narad ji told them the full story. Mother Lakshmi, Goddess Sati and Goddess Saraswati all three reached to Mother Anusuiya and apologized to her and started praying to return the three gods to their form again.
This is how Lord Dattatreya was born
On the request of the Gods and Goddesses, Mother Anusuiya returned her form to Tridev. The three deities gave a boon to be born as the son of Anusuiya and sage Atri. Only after this Lord Dattatreya was born from the womb of Mother Anusuiya. He was named Dutt. On the other hand, being the son of Maharishi Atri, he was called Atreya, thus the name Dattatreya was formed by mixing Datta and Atreya.
