Shrikrishna Shyama Kamalanayana Avatara is the last of Dattatreya’s 16 incarnations. Shri Datta’s Shrikrishna Shyama Kamalanayana Avatara was first appeared on Kartik Shuddha Dwadashi, Wednesday, Revati Nakshatra at sunrise.
Shri Datta had different Avatars as Yogiraj, Atrivarad etc. and advised his devotees with Gnana, bhakti, vairagya, eight fold yoga sadhana etc. Bhagwan Shri Datta was lying on the bed of dnyan and was engrossed in yoga. At that time, some devotees and disciples came to see him.
Shri Datta appeared pleasant and in the form of Sat Chit (lasting and lustrous). Shri Datta said, “Having studied all the shastras, I tell you the real essence. Practising it you will soon get salvation. Vedic dharma is ever lasting. Veda is at its root, hence dharma has prominence and lasting status. I am ‘Datta’ not only for Atri, but I give myself to all those who have unprejudiced devotion for me. I give sayujyata (i.e. immersion in myself) to such devotees.”
