Lord Dattatreya is the Grand Teacher or “Guru principle” in the universe. All the teachers in various planes are the manifestation of the one teaching principle who is referred to in the ancient Indian wisdom as Dattatreya.
The World Teacher Trust and Dattatreya
The Earth has a Hierarchy of Teachers and its head is called the World Teacher. The World Teacher is known as Lord Maitreya while the Cosmic Teacher is known as Lord Dattatreya. The World Teacher Trust (WTT) is named after the World Teacher. The energy of Lord Dattatreya is the chief energy of the World Teacher Trust.
The book “Sri Dattatreya. The Symbol & the Significance” by Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar introduces a basic understanding of Dattatreya as an eternal principle. The principle exists in all as the Teacher principle, as the guide that leads one onto one's own source of existence.
