Shri Guru Charitra
Introduction 1
Shri Guru-Charitra, a religious book giving a brief life story of "Shri Nrusimha Saraswati SwamiMaharaj", was written in the 15
th
Century by one of his closest disciples. This book is a treasure house of religious events related to the life of Shri Nrusimha Saraswati. It is read with great reverence by thedevotees of Lord Shri Dattatreya.The 'Shri Guru Charitra' is the life of 'Shri Guru Dattatreya' (an incarnation of Brahma, Vishnu andMaheshwara). It was originally written in Ovi form (a Marathi Metre) in Marathi by Shri SaraswatiGangadhar, whose ancestor Sayamdev had personally lived and served with devotion, Guru NarasimhaSaraswati, an incarnation of Shri Dattatreya about 600 years ago. It was later translated into Sanskrit byShri Vasudevananda Saraswati (Tembye Swamy), who is regarded by many as an incarnation of ShriDattatreya and who lived about a hundred years ago. It has been later translated into several otherlanguages.This volume is regarded as divine, capable of blessing one and all who read it with respect and is placedwith images of Gods and adored in almost all devotees' houses of Maharashtra. It is much respected andis very popular like Vedas, Ramayan, Mahabharat, Bhagawat and other puranas in sanskritandDnyaneshwari, Dasbodh, Eknathi Bhagwat etc. in Marathi. In the last century, it has spread its influencefar and wide and legion are the experiences got by those devotees who read it regularly with respect.Shri Dattatreya had taken birth at the Ashram of Atri and Anasuya in very very old times (Krita Yuga)and it is believed that his two incarnations namely Shripada Shri Vallabha and Shri Narasimha Saraswatihad taken place in the Deccan in about the 14th and 15th Century(A. D.) respectively. Shri ManikyaPrabhu, Shri Akkalkot Maharaj, Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi and Shri Vasudevananda Saraswati are some of the great Saints who are considered as the Avatars (incarnations) or Amsas (taking a part of His powers)of Shri Dattatreya.This is the historical period when the Bahamani Kingdom was split up into five different Kingships, oneof which viz,'Bidar' is mentioned in this volume. 'Shri Guru Charitra' depicts the life missions of thesetwo incarnations.The original volume contains 52 chapters and it is written in the form of conversation betweenNaamdharak and his spiritual Guru Shri Siddha Muni, who was a disciple of Shri Narasimha Saraswati.Several miraculous deeds are associated with these two Gurus - 5 such deeds are relating to Shripada ShriVallabh (chapters 5 to 10) and 26 are relating to Shri Narasimha Saraswati, (chapters 11 to 51) besidesmany mythological (pouranik) tales have also been narrated in this volume by way of illustration. Themain aim of the book is to extol the greatness of the Spiritual preceptor (Guru) and to dispel the ignorantnotion that He is just another human.According to researches made in connection with Shri Guru Charitra, by a Gurubhakta, Shri R. K. aliasAnnasaheb Kamat of Durga Datta Mandir, Mashail, Goa, ' Shri Guru Charitra' contains 'Shri Guru Geeta'as its 49th chapter. It is composed of 176 Sanskrit slokas and 34 Marathi Ovis - 13 at the begining and 21in the end. In some of the latter scripts it seems that this chapter of Shri Guru Geeta is deleted, probably itbeing in Sanskrit and the 41st chapter is split up into two chapters, keeping the number of chapters thesame i. e. 52. The gist of Shri Guru Geeta is included in this volume. (Shri Guru Gita is a dialoguebetween Shri Siva and His Divine consort Shri Parvati and forms a part of Skanda Puran. It deals with thegreatness of Guru and establishes that Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Maheswara, why, itproclaims, Guru is identical with Para Brahma, Who is considered the Origin of all including the Trinityof Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara. Since Sri Dattatreya is also an incarnation of the three Deities, He isrevered as the Adi Guru. Shri Dattatreya is an Avinash Avatar, i.e. He did not shed His body when Hismission was completed like Sri Rama, Sri Krishna etc., but is continuing even today. His mission is tohelp all His devotees cross this Ocean of Worldly existence.)The research scholars of Medical Sciences have a good opportunity of thinking over and analysing themeans that have been used by Shri Guru for cure of acute gastric pain, leprosy, toxic irritations, revival tolife, sterilty of females etc. Of course it is an admitted fact that the yogic and Divine power of Shri Guruis mainly responsible for these miracles to a great extent. Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi also performed similar'miracles' to reinforce the faith of His devotees.In order that the general public, males and females, should be acquainted with the contents of this greatpopular volume, a humble attempt was made by this author and 'Subodh Shri Guru Charitra' in Marathiprose was published in November, 1952, on Datta Jayanti (Margashirsh Poornima). The author desires tobring about an edition in Hindi, the National language of Bharat and also an English edition of this book
