Dattatreya represents all spiritual traditions. As an incarnation of God. Data was born to the sage Atri and Anasuya to spread the universality of true religion. He is the Eternal Spiritual Guide of all mankind. Dattatreya is usually depicted with three heads, symbolising Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, past present and future, and the three states of consciousness- waking dreaming and dreamless sleep. Around him are four dogs that symbolise the four Vedas.
The Saandilya Upanishad states, «The Supreme Brahman performed penance and desiring to become many, assumed the form of Dattatreya. From that, form came out the three letters AUM; the three mystical names Bhuh, Bhuvah and Svah; the three-linded Gayatri; the three Vedas Rig. Yajur and Sama; the three Gods Brahma Vishnu and Maheswara etc». The name «Datta» signifies selfless sacrifice. The Dattatreya Upanishad explains this. «Not by action, not by progeny, nor even by self, but by renunciation (tyaaga) alone is immortality attained. «Real renunciation is the giving up of «I» and mine, not the mere abandoning of duties. Living a selfless life require giving up one’s ego. As a yiga-avatar, Lord Dattatreya teaches us to perform all our duties skillfully and diligently. Yoga does not require outside aids, nor does it demand great physical effort. All we have to do is change our outlook our mind will be freed from agitation and attain the restful state called «equanimity». This is the state of Bliss that every soul ultimately aspires to. This is the state of Datta-the ultimate Gift to God.
