Datta Kshamapana Stotram
(Prayer Seeking Forgiveness of Dathathreya)

[This was written by a great saint devotee of Swami Dathathreya of Maharashtra called Sri Vasudevananda Saraswathi or Thembe Swami. A brief life history is given in saikesaat.blogspot.com/2008/01/shri-vasudevanandsaraswati-tembe-swami.html. You can chant this mantra 9 times a day for a life time or at least once or thrice a day. Some Dattatreya devotees chant this mantra 9 times a day for 40 days as a belief that their wishes get fulfilled.]
