Lord Sripada Srivallabha is the first incarnation of Jagadguru Sri Dattatreya.
In the words of Sripada himself, “Undoubtedly, I am Datta. As you have a body, I also came with a body to enable you to recognize Me. But I am formless and without attributes. I will constantly take care of the welfare of those who adore Me with pure devotion, who cast all their burdens on Me, and seek total surrender from Me.”
Sripada Srivallabha blesses his disciples with the same results as the worship of Sri Dattatreya as Sripada is verily Sri Dattatreya himself.

His incarnation was very much necessary for those whose hearts were polluted by the dark age of Kali, for those whose actions were conditioned by destiny, for those who live by sinful money, and for all the human beings in the Kali Yuga.

Gurucharitra gives an instant of how even after Anthardhaan, Shripad Shrivallabh helped one of his devotees “Vallabhesha”.
As announced by Srīpāda, a Samsthan (temple and place of worship) got established at his birth place in Pithapuram.
At the beginning of 20th Century Sri Vasudevananda Saraswati who was well known as “Tembay Swamy” came to Pithapuram during his travels in the country. He announced Pithapuram as the birth place of Sree Sripada Srivallabha. Till that day, this fact was unknown to residents of Pithapuram village and the whole Telugu People of the country.
It was slowly developed through the relentless activity of Sri Sajjanagada Ramaswamy since 1966.
Even now also, many devotees are experiencing the presence of Swamy at Kuruvapur kshetra. The kshetra is a yogic place, calm and cool. No connections with outer world (baahya prapancha). Many Sadhus, Yogis and Sadhaks are coming and performing Shree Gurucharitra parayana, Sadhana.

No letters are there to write….No words are there to tell…..except recollection of memories, vibrations and experiences with falling tears on cheeks.
