Lord Datta

dattaIn Hindu mythology Lord Datta is the supreme Guru of the universe, is an embodiment of Christ Consciousness. He is in the form of pure energy but takes any and all forms when required.


Mythologically, He is the coalesced form of Trinity Gods - Creator, Preserver and Destroyer, i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and is thus capable of doing and undoing the functions of any of the three.


Despite popular belief, Hinduism is not a religion, but a way of way of life, that allows for all Gods and all beliefs, and is open to anyone of any religion. The core of the Hindu way of life, is to live life purely, and true to ones conscience. Within this context, Lord Datta is supposedly spreading the seeds of yoga, knowledge, compassion, truth, sincerity, purity, and faith, thereby elevating human beings to the highest pedestal of development i.e. Self-realization.


Though omnipresent, it is believed that He makes His presence felt as and when remembered anywhere by anybody sincerely.


At different times in human evolution, different religious and spiritual rites have been practiced, in accordance with the needs of humans at that time. In todays fast paced and modern lifestyle, there is insufficient time and inclination to spend much time in prayer, and as such Lord Datta has now offered a mantra of only a few words - ‘HARI OM TATSAT JAI GURU DATTA’ - for experiencing peace and happiness in these turbulent times, through chanting alone.
