Paramahansa Parivrajakacharya shrimat vasudevananda Saraswati Swami Maharaj was an eminent saint who holds a very respectable place in the heart of every devotee of the Dattasampradya. Like Shrimat Adi Shankaracharya, Maharaj also travelled barefoot all over India for all his life to spread the principles of Vedic dharma and the devotion towards Lord Dattatreya amongst the people. Swami Maharaj has composed many spiritual volumes in Sanskrit and in Prakrit. His composition of (A)ghorakashtoddharana stotra is well-known amongst the Dattasampradaya and is recited regularly in many Datta temples. Every year, 108 Satya Datta Pooja ceremony is held at the moortisthan of Paramashansa Parivrajakacharya Shrimat Vasudevananda Saraswati Swami Maharaj at Khopoli in Maharashtra. During this ceremony, Paramapoojya Sadguru Shri Bapat Guruji delivers a series of discourses on Swami Maharaj's selected compositions in a very simple language to simplify the path of devotion for thedevotees of Lord Dattatreya. During the Satya Datta Pooja held at Khopoli sthan on August 24 to 26 in the year 2008, Shri Guruji gave discourses on Swami Maharaj's composition (A) ghorakashtoddharana stotra and on the auspicious occasion of Dattajayanti of the same year, a book in Marathi titled (A)ghorakashtoddharana stotra sampoorna Artha Ani Vivechan' was published.

Upon a good response and demand from the devotees, the reprint of the original Marathi book was published in the year 2009 on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya. By the grace of the Sadguru, the Hindi version of this book was also published in 2011.
