Yogijana Vallabha Avatara is fifth of Dattatreya’s 16 incarnations. This Avatara first appeared on Margashira Purnima, Thursday (Guruvar), Mrigashira Nakshatra, in the evening time.
When Shri Dattatreya appeared at Anasuya’s ashram, Indra followed by the Gods, Rishi-munis, Gandharvas, Charanas, Yogis and saints came to see him. Knowing their eagerness, Shri Datta appeared as a boy and advised them about yoga. He said, “I have no body, no time. I am devoid of birth and death. I take various forms to bless the devotees. Though these acts are transitory this does not affect my tatvic state.”
This Avatar is known for the propagation of yogapath and for removing the obstacles coming in the way and blessing the followers of yoga. This Avatar is, therefore, known as ‘Yogijan Vallabha’.
