Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya reply to King Yadu,

Guru No. 24 of Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya

Water: Lord Dattatreya replied that my twenty fourth guru is a Water. It quenches the thirst of every living creature, sustains innumerable life's, trees and all creatures. While it serves one and all living beings, it is never proud of itself. On the other hand, it humbly seeks the lowliest of places. The sage too should likewise bestow health, peace and joy to every creature that resorts to him. Yet he should ever live as the humblest of God’s creation.
