Inscribed in Gurumukhi saying ‘Guru Nanak had met Sanyasi Dattatreya'. Guru is seen with his inseparable disciples Bala and Mardana. The Palette is vibrant, typical of Kashmiri style. Both Bala and Mardana are chancing upon the ascetic figure of Dattatreya. The painter has rendered the encounter with dramatic simplicity.
