People in Kerala do not know about the Shri Dattatrey. There are not many Dattatrey temples also. People here are suffering spiritual distress due to ancestoral problems. This year on the occasion of Dattajayanti, curious were told the importance of Dattajayanti and chanting Shri Datta’s Name through social media like WhatsApp, and Facebook, displaying boards with the information. Seekers requested curious to chant Datta’s Chant collectively and they were asked to chant the same chant at home on Dattajayanti.
