Yogiraaja Vallabha Dattatreya

Yogi Raja Vallabha Dattatreya
Proddatur, Andhra Pradesh, India

Proddatur Ashrama is one of 16 Datta Kshetras, the abode of Sri Yogiraja Vallabha Dattatreya Swami.

The town is significant because Sri Swamiji spent a few years here during the ages of 11-13, under the stringent spiritual tutelage of his aunt Venkamma, a stern Haṭha Yogini. 

The Ashrama, located in the heart of town, actively renders religious, spiritual, charitable, and medical services to the community.

The deities include Kshipra Ganapati, Anjaneya Swami, Sudarshana Yoga Narasimha Swami, Satyanarayana Swami, Navagrahas, and Chamundeswari Devi.

A place of severe penance becomes a spiritual retreat.
