Sri Anagha Datta Society of Calgary is a CRA registered Charity based in Calgary, focussing on the Guru parampara of Sri Dattatreya. Shirdi Saibaba was an incarnation of Dattatreya and we maintain a temple for the Baba.
Sri Anagha devi is a tri-murthy-swarupini i.e. a form of Shakti comprising the essence of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma and their consorts Parvati, Lakshmi and Saraswati.
Sri Anagha devi is the consort of Sri Guru Dattatreya. Sri Guru Datta is a manifestation of the trinity Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva and forms the first Guru whose later incarnations include, SriPada-SriVallabha, Sri Narsimha Saraswati, Sri Akkalakota Swami Samarth, Shiridi Sai baba, and current incarnation Sri SatyaSai baba of Parthi amongst others.
The devi is bestowed with a third eye just like Lord Shiva (Trinetrini). The Rudrakshas, the Trishul (Trident), Jhootam(knotted hair) & Nandi are the indication of Shiva Tatva. She is seated on the Adisesha, wearing the Shankha, Chakra and Naamam as her ornaments indicating the Vishnu Tatva. The Pearl beads & Lotus are the Brahma Tatva.
In the Lakshmi Ashtottara Satanama Stotram, there is a mention of the Anagha Devi as the 32nd name.
“Anugraha Pradaaam Buddhim Anaghaam Hari Vallabhaam
Ashokaam Amrutaam Deeptaam Loka Shoka Vinasinim “
The Lalitha Sahasranama Stotram’s 180th verse also mentions Anagha Devi.
” Yonimudra Trikhandeshi Trigunanba Trikonaga
Anaghadbhuta Charitra Vanchitardha Pradaeini “
