Is sri datta stavam a part of any scripture? If yes, what is the name of the scripture? Else, who wrote it?

1 Answer 1


According to this blog article Shri Datta Stavam is composed by Shri Vasudevanand Saraswathy (Tembe swamy 1854–1914).This stotra is also having another name as "Jaya Laabhaadhikara Shree Dattastavam".

Which is having 9 shlokas. As we can see this stotra is fairly new one and is not part of any ancient hinduism scriptures.
I am herewith posting the sanskrit shlokas of Datta Stavam , the meaning of which can be found on Hindudharmaforums site. Its believed among Shri Datta devotees that reciting this stotra a person gets Wealth , peace of mind , success , material desires and ultimately Moksha.
