Birth Story Of Lord Dattatreya 

The religious texts describe the story related to the birth of Dattatreya Ji. The mythological story is as follows – Maharishi Atri Muni’s wife Anusuya was extremely devoted to her husband and it became the point of discussion in all three worlds. When Anusuya was praised by Narad Muni Ji for her devotion to Lakshmi Mother, Parvati Ma, and Goddess Saraswati, then all three goddesses decided to take the test of Devi Anusuya. On the request of three goddesses, the Trimurti Brahma, Vishnu, & Shiva reached the earth to test the devotion of Anusuya Ji. 

The three gods disguised themselves as sages and in the absence of Atri Muni, reached the Ashram of Mother Anusuya and expressed their desires to have food from the mother. At that time, Anusuya Ji served a plate of food for them with devotion, considering hospitality as her duty. But, before considering the food, the three gods placed a condition in front of the mother that they would accept the food only when she served the food in a naked form. For the solution to this specific crisis, the goddess meditated in her mind taking the name of her husband Atri Muni, and watched that Trimurti Brahma, Vishnu, & Shiva were standing in front of her in the form of sages. 

After this, when Devi Anusuya took out water from Atri Muni’s Kamandal and sprinkled it on all three sages, then all of them took the form of six-month old infants. At that time, the mother offered food to all the three sadhus as per their conditions. After that, all three goddesses sought an apology from Anusuya Mother and the Trimurti also accepted their mistake and desired to be born from the mother’s womb. Dattatreya Ji was born in the form of three gods after that.
