Shri Ganeshaya Namaha

Shri Gurubhyo Namaha

ShriPada Shri Vallabha Shri Nrisimha Saraswati Dattatreya Gurubhyo Namaha

Suklam Baradharam Vishnum Sasivarnam Chaturbhujam |

PrasannaVadanam Dhyaayet Sarva Vighnopa Shantaye ||

         O Ganapati! Salutations. For the devotees who pray and worship you with Trikarana Suddhi', you grant all wishes and promise protection. Taking it as a responsibility vested upon by Guru to write this holy book named 'Shri Guruleela', am endeavouring to write the details of Shri Dattatreya, the form of ParaBrahma². Extend your pleasant sight upon me and bless that no obstacles are encountered.

Saraswati Namstubhyam Varade Kaamarupini |

Vidyaarambham Karishyaami! Siddhirbhavatu Me Sadaa ||

       Mother! Goddess Saraswati! You are the queen of learning. You are the one who confers all education. You are the Goddess who dwells in every living being in the form of intellect. Trying to write this virtuous Holy book named 'Shri Guruleela' for the sake of promoting SatGuru Datta, for the welfare of the universe, to safeguard of justice, will play the pen as you make me play. This is your responsibility; your meaning, your words. Feeling of 'my-ness' in me has perished long time ago. So, everything is in your control.

Sadaa Nimba Vrikshasya Moolaadi Vaasaat! Sudhasravinam Tiktamapya Priyantam ||

Tarum Kalpavrikshaadhikam Saadhayantam! Namaameeswaram Sadgurum Sainatham ||

        Obeisance to Samartha Sadguru Sainath. Lord Sai! Having put my vision on your lotus feet, have thought of writing the details of incarnations of Dattatreya naming the Holy book 'Shri Guruleela'. Have thought of writing, receiving favour from You who are the absolute incarnation of Dattatreya. Wishing that you confer your tender, compassionate sight and provide knowledge and make all people walk in the flower-filled path of absoluteness filled through this holy book.

         The greatness of Shri Nrisimha Saraswaty Swamy in Gandharvanagar has become famous world over and people from even far off places came, obtained His grace and people who could not get married got married, those who were childless got children, those who were hungry and poor got prosperity, and those who were diseased got good health.

        A Brahmin named "Namadharaka" has started for Ganugapur to earnestly visit the lotus feet of Shri Nrisimha Saraswati Swami. Despite being very enthusiastic about seeing the Gurudev, he is worrisome in his heart.

        Taking the name of Shri Nrisimha Saraswati Swamy, he prayed : "Swamy Nrisimha! Why not my difficulties are vanishing just as others difficulties when Your name is chanted? If my sins are the reason for this, why isn't Your name, which destroys all the sins, wiping them away? Vedas and Smritis say that Guru Himself is the incarnation of the Trio of Gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. It is famed that Guru can grant just by a mere thought and in this Kaliyug Shri Nrisimha Saraswati is such Guru. Then why is it not being proved in my case? Why am I unable to focus my devotion on You? It is not fair to say that the time has not yet come to favour me by You, who are capable of everything. It is true that I have not served You in the past, thinking You are my only refuse. How will it be a gift if granted only after serving? Even a king saves those who are born in his country. You should save me at least for the reason that my ancestors have served You with no desires. It seems that You are angry with me. It may be fair to one like You, but it is not fair in the case of feeble people like me. Mistakes that I have committed must be the reason. Being ignorant, it is natural for me to commit mistakes. Please however favour Your compassionate looks at me and save me. I have no other saviour than You. Where is your kindness, O gracious merciful Lord?"

        In this way he pleaded Shri Nrisimha Saraswati Swami with tears. He rested under a tree at a distance as he fainted. Immediately he got a dream. He saw in the dream, a yogi with plaited hair, tiger skin wearing a garment of bark. He also felt as if the yogi had blessed him placing his hand on the head. Even after waking up from the sleep, the dream, the yogi, and the feeling have been reeling in his memory. Praying to the same yogi's form, then he entered Gandharvapuram.

Om Shri Dattatreya Guravey Namaha

Om ShriPada Swaminey Namaha 

Om Shri Nrisimha Saraswattyai Namaha

ShriPada Shri Vallabha Shri Nrisimha Saraswati Dattatreya Gurubhyo Namaha
