Lord Dattatreya Mantras


Lord Dattatreya is the incarnation of the Holy Trinity consisting of Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He thereby has the combined qualities of the Trinity. He is considered as the Guru of all Gurus. This incarnation of the Creator, the Protector and the Destroyer is said to be very kind to his worshippers and bless them with all they need. Lord Dattatraya is normally portrayed with a cow representing Bhoomi Devi (Mother Earth) and four dogs at his feet representing the four Vedas. Dattatreya has three heads symbolizing the unity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He also represents the time (past, present and future) and the 3 main aspects of the Universe (creation, preservation and destruction).

Lord Dattatreya was born to Sage Atri and Anasuya because of the boon she received from the Trinity who tested her. They begged Anasuya who was well known for her chastity for alms and requested her to prepare and serve food for them after being naked. As it is considered wrong to turn guests away and Guests are considered as god she agreed to the request. But the power of her chastity was such that the Trinity had to turn infants to be fed by her. Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva was extremely pleased by her that they showed their original form and blessed Anusuya that she will give birth a son who will be the embodiment of the three Lords. The word Datta means ‘Given’. As he was given as a son to the sage couple Atri and Anasuya, he is also known as Atreya.

The taraka monosyllable mantra of Dattatreya is 'Daam' and the six syllable mantra is 'OM, ShriiM, HriiM, KliiM, GlauM, DraaM. Given below are some of the popular mantras of Lord Dattareya.

Kamadeva Mantras

Kamadeva is the Hindu Deity of love. Kama Deva literally means 'divine love' or 'god of love'. He is normally depicted as a young and handsome winged man who wields a bow and arrows. Kamdev is known by several names like Ragavrinta, Ananga, Kandarpa, Manmatha, Manasija, Madana, Ratikanta, Pushpavan, Pushpadhanva or simply Kama. The story of the birth of Kamadeva is told differently in several Puranas. In some stories Kamadeva is said to be the son of Goddess Mahalakshmi and in others he is said to be the mind born son of Lord Brahma. He is also the husband of Rati the Goddess of Beauty and is also said to be an incarnation of Pradyumna, a son of Krishna by Rukmini. The vaishnavites believe that he is Krishna himself. The basis of the story is that after Kamadeva was burned to ashes by Shiva because of his anger the cupid god merged into the body of Vasudeva Krishna and in order to get his body again he was placed in the womb of Rukmini.

Kamadev Mantra
Kling Kamdevaya Namah

Kamadev Gayatri Mantra
Kleem Kaamdevaaya Vidmahe
Pushpa Baanaaya Dheemahi
Tanno Angaa Prachodayaat

In this mantra KLEEM is the Kama bija. Om can be used instead of kleem as well. Chanting 1 mala of this Mantra facing West on a 108 beads Rosary for a 40 day period can bring in love and affection to the chanter as it increases the positive energies from the 7th house which is related to desires, marriage and relationships.  If you have been searching for the right love or life partner in vain or your sexual life has gone stale then chanting Kamadeva Gayathri Mantra can help.  The most auspicious time to start chanting this mantra would be on Pradosh kaal preferably from Basant Panchami till Holi. Wearing the 13 mukhi Rudraksha Bead representing God Cupid is also very effective in attracting love.
