Bhakti Ganga (Devotional Songs) — English  Telugu  Hindi

Dattātreyā danyat tuccham

dattātreyā danyat tuccham,
dattātreyā danyadasatyam । (Chorus)

Anything other than Dattātreya is worst waste. Anything other than Dattātreya is not absolute reality.

jāṭa jūṭa mukha locana ṣaṭkam,
tarka jaṭila ṣaṭ śāstra jñānam ।

The rigidly matted tufts on the three heads with the below six eyes of three faces indicate the complicated logic with the spiritual knowledge of six holy secondary scriptures. The head and face stand for intellect or Jñāna yoga.

kāṣāyāmbara rāgo varṇaḥ,
pakvabhakti ranurāgo hṛdayam ।

Below next to the above, the red cloth indicates the heart or mind with love or devotion with pink colour, which is Bhakti yoga.

pāduke ca tava vadataḥ karma ca,
phalita tyāgaṃ karma yogam ॥

Below next to the above both, Your two wooden chappals indicate the practical action called Karma yoga. One chappal indicates the sacrifice of service or Karma Saṃnyāsa and the other chappal indicates the sacrifice of fruit of work or karmaphala tyāga. In sequence from top to bottom Jñāna Yoga of intelligence, Bhakti Yoga of heart or mind and Karma Yoga of practical action are indicated as the essential form of God Dattātreya. Jñāna yoga, Bhakti yoga and Karma yoga come one after the other like the sequence of their founders, who are Śaṇkarācārya (Śiva), Ramānujācārya (Viṣṇu) and Madhvācārya (Brahmā).
