Likewise, Dattatreya gives a list of twenty-four Gurus, regarding himself as a humble student of the whole of creation.

He also teaches us the lesson that the higher is one's knowledge, the humbler is that person.
The larger is our wisdom, the smaller we look in the eyes of people.
The nearer we are to God, the farther we appear from people's eyes.


So Lord Dattatreya is here before us as a spiritual magnet and a magnificent embodiment of divine power – the powers even of creation, preservation and destruction.

"I will now tell you what I have learnt from space, which is one of my Gurus. Vast is my kingdom like space. Everything is mine and everything is not mine also.

"I learnt a lesson from the honey bee. The bee moves from place to place and from flower to flower, collects sweet pollen from flowers and mixes them into a jelly, then blends all these beautiful essences into what is called honey.
