When we observe the life of Sripada Sharma, his father Kuppa Narsaiah Sharma garu was totally distressed being childless, Saraswati Upasak Vallambotla Gundaiah garu visited his home.
It is said that Goddess Saraswati has written Bijaksharams on Vallambotla gari tongue when he prayed the goddess intently at Basara. Such a pandit, having understood Narsaiah Sharma's agony, has suggested him to go to Gangapur to offer prayers and worship Dattatreya in order to be blessed with a child.
Narsaiah Sharma along with his wife visited Gangapur and completed the Parayana as he was told. Eventually, within few years, he was blessed with two daughters and a son, and named them Dattasri, Sripada Sharma and Padasri, after Guru Dattatreya.
Thus, Sripada Sharma, the Prasadam of Guru Dattatreya, grown up, having strengthened by his father's Upasana-energy and Pandit Gundaiah's blessings.
Narsaiah Sharma's home is a centre for spiritual and religious activities such as Bhagavad-Gita and Gurucharitra Parayana. Such intent activities laid spiritual and yogic roots in Sripada Sharma while he was still young.
Surprisingly, all the ceremonies pertaining to Sripada Sharma, namely, Namakarana, Annaprasana and Upanayana were held at Gangapur in the presence of Dattatreya.Surprisingly, all the ceremonies pertaining to Sripada Sharma, namely, Namakarana, Annaprasana and Upanayana were held at Gangapur in the presence of Dattatreya.
