1. Spiritual reasons for the
complexion of the three Deities
Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh being the
same or different in pictures of Deity Shri Datta
In Sanatan’s almanac for 2019 in the month of December there is a new picture of Deity Datta with all three Deities having the same golden complexion. In the previous almanacs the complexion of the three Deities was different – that of Brahma was golden, Shri Vishnu blue and Shri Shiva ash coloured. The reasons for this are given further.
1A. Complexion of the three Deities
being different in the picture of Shri Datta
Difference in complexion of the three Deities depicts duality between them. When the mission of the three Deities occurs independently that is there is duality between Them, Their complexion is different.
1B. Same complexion of the three Deities
When the mission of the three Deities occurs together through Shri Datta, there is no duality between Them so Their complexion is the same.
2. Spiritual causes for the idol of
Shri Datta having three heads or one head
Though in most temples of Shri Datta the idol has three heads there is one temple at Narayanpur close to Pune with an idol with only one head. Spiritual reasons for this are as follows.
2A. Three headed idol of Shri Datta
When in the idol of Shri Datta each Deity – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh function independently in the Sagun (materialised) plane, there is duality between Them; hence there are three heads.
2B. An idol of Shri Datta with only one head
When the three Deiites – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh function at the Nirgun level there is no duality between them and They merge into each other. Hence the idol is depicted with only one head.
