Maharaj says that the places where he has done his penance are powerspots. They are high spiritual energy fields with the Divine power to transform the lives of people who go there with faith and devotion.

Lord Dattatreya
Hindu Mythology represents Dattatraya as a Being with three faces, one of God Bramha, the other of God Vishnu and the third of Divine Shiva. The three heads represent the power of creation, preservation and destruction, which are present in the universe emanating from one and the same Reality, although each function is designated differently.

The trinity (trimurti) arising from a unity indicates the synthetic vision of the unity of things which has given life to Indian Philosophy down the ages. The four dogs at the feet of Lord Dattatraya represent the four Vedas as hounds of heaven and watch-dogs of truth, owned by Dattatray, the great Hunter for the souls of men. The ochre colored garb of Dattatraya symbolizes sanyasa, the spirit of renunciation or detachment without which realization of ultimate truth would only be a half-hearted effort.

Dattatraya the teacher and the Deity , I meditate on Him, the Lord, the ever-holy Lord , His hymn and his song too Do I expound by his irresistible glance?

Dattatraya is a teacher of Gods and of the antigods. He protects men from evil influences. He is worshipped by many sages and taught the Vedanta doctrine of self-realization. He is a person of gentle, peaceful and loving character. His Jayanti (Birthday) is celebrated on the full-moon in the month of Margasirsha (December).

One can experience this unique feeling in all his Ashrams & Penance spot.

Lord Shiva
Shiva is one of the Gods of the Trinity. Lord Shiva sits in a meditative pose against the white background of the snow-capped Himalayas in Mount Kailas. His posture symbolizes perfect inner harmony and poise, experienced by a man of Realization. He is noted in God-Consciousness. Nothing disturbs him. Lord Shiva not only represents the supreme state of perfection in man but in his very pose indicates the way to reach it as well. He is also a great ascetic and the patron duty of ascetics generally.

He is said to be the God of destruction. He stays in horrible places such as battlefield, burning-grounds and crossroads, which destroys all them. Shiva is said to have a third eye known as an eye of wisdom-whose vision reaches beyond the physical to divine vision of reality.

Shiva is married to the Goddess Uma who represents the whole nature which is perishable matter. Shiva?s marriage with Uma signifies that human nature could rise above and transform itself into Divine Shiva (Blessed Nature)

The Nine Masters
The Nath-sect occupies an important position in the religions history of medieval India. It is a popular all-India religious movement that strives for immortality by transforming the human body into an imperishable divine body.

The aim of a yogi is to become a Nath, meaning ‘Master’. He must undergo a systematic course of moral, physical, intellectual and spiritual discipline with a view to the attainment of perfect mastery over body and the Trinity Nature. A Yogi must rise above all bondages, sorrows and limitations and all the weaknesses of his physical and psychic nature. He should conquer death. He must acquire ‘Darshan’, a true vision that is to say, perfect insight into the ultimate character of reading.

The Nath Yogis are Nine traditional Masters - all have transformed their bodies through yogic discipline who reside in Himalayas. Adinath as Lord Shiva is their Guru and Matsyendranath is considered the first of the human gurus (spiritual guides). The credit of placing Nath-tradition on a firm foundation is given to Sri Gorakfhnath who had combined the philosophy of Shiva with the Hathayoga of Patanjali on the practical side. The Nath Yogies achieve a state of natural harmony through cultivation of the culture of body (Kaya - Sadhana) by the control of semen, breath and thought. Guidance of an accomplished Guru (teacher) is considered essential. Sri Gagangiri is a Nath Yogi in this tradition.
