Mythological significance of the pathogen

As per the  mythological beliefs, there used to be a learned Rishi named Atri in ancient times. His knowledge was famous in all the three worlds. He had a wife named Anasuya and she would stay with him. Once, his wife got pregnant and he wished for the qualities equivalent to Trideva i.e. Brahma Vishnu and Mahesh by drowning in meditation. All the three wives got envious after knowing the wish of the Rishi and took permission from Trideva to teach a lesson to his wife, Anasuya.  

Then, the Trideva appeared in the form of gods for fulfilling the wish of their wives. After this, they went to Anasuya and asked to beg them in a naked state. Anasuya got astonished after hearing them and sprinkled some drops of water on them while reciting the Mantra. Exactly after this, Trideva took the form of small boys and then, she did breast-feed to all three of them.  

Anasuya narrated the whole incident to Rishi after he had returned home. He responded as if he were knowing the same in advance. He also greeted the three boys wholeheartedly and converted them into a single boy having six hands and  three heads. 

Seeing the miracle of the Rishi, the three wives repented of their mistakes and tendered their apology before Anasuya and requested her to convert the three boys into their original forms. Anasuya agreed to their request and asked her husband to convert them into their original forms.

After coming back in the original forms, they too tendered their apology before Anasuya and blessed the baby forming in her womb. Later, this baby was known as Dattatreya.
