Sai! The Embodiment of Dattatreya
A professor of philosophy learnt many works of epics from a guru
who was known as 'Gonthavali Brahma Chaithanya Maharaj'. This guru
was also an ardent devotee of Lord Dattatreya. He once told the
professor, "Dattatreya has reincarnated in Puttaparthi in human
form" and urged him to go Puttaparthi and get blessings of the
Lord. He also added that he was unable to travel that far due to
his old age and expressed his desire that atleast the professor
visits Baba. Obliging the words of his guru, the professor came to
Puttaparthi. He was blessed with a personal interview of Baba.
Even as he entered, Baba told him, "Take Padanamaskar. This is the
very seat of Lord Dattatreya". The immense joy experienced by the
professor could not be explained by mere words.
