In paintings and some large carvings, he is surrounded by four dogs and a cow, the dogs are a symbol of Duttaguru' s teaching of similitude and equality among all creatures especially animals, right from the pure and holy cow to the dog, the least and lowest of lifeforms in Hindu thought; this exegesis was put forward by a charismatic personality, the avtari purush godman of the Dattatreya lineage, Shri Ramakrishna Saraswati Kshirsagar Swamiji of Ambikapur Ahmednagar. The cow is adored and revered mainly in North India as a symbol of the Mother Earth who nourishes all living beings.
