Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya reply to King Yadu,

Guru No. 15 of Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya

Playful Boy: Lord Dattatreya replied that my fifteenth guru is a Playful Boy. He saw a little boy Playing and observed that Little childrens know neither honor nor dishonor. They do not nurse a grudge or a prejudice against anyone. They do not know what is theirs and what belongs to others. Their happiness springs from their own selves, their innate creativity and they do not need any external objects or conditions to be happy. I realized that the sage of perfect enlightenment is also such. A playful boy thus happened to be my fifteenth guru.
