Datta devotees had a glimpse of ‘Datta Paduka’ at Sri Guru Dattatreya Bababudangiri Swami Dargah on Thursday.

On Anasuya Jayanti, the first day of Datta Jayanthyutsava, devotees from various parts of the state took part in the ‘Sankeerthana yatra’ procession organised by Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal.

The procession was taken out from Bolarameshwara Temple premises at 11 am and passed through I G road, Ratnagiri road and culminated at Kamadhenu Mahashakti Ganapathy temple. 

The idols of Anasuya Devi, Atri Muni and Dattatreya were carried in the procession. The devotees chanted the names of Lord Dattatreya and sang bhajans. Later, the devotees headed towards Inam Datta Peetha and had the darshan of Datta Paduka at Sri Guru Dattatreya Bababudangiri Swami Dargah. After a security check, devotees were allowed to enter into the cave where the Datta Padukas are placed.

Ganapathy Homa and Durga Homa were carried out at Datta Peetha, under the guidance of priest Raghunatha Avadhani. Turmeric, vermillion and bangles were distributed to women near the auditorium at Datta Peetha. Palav, curd rice and ‘laddoo prasadam’ were served to devotees.

Women devotees from Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Shivamogga and Hassan districts took part. Police security at the venue was tight.
