The Bhagavata Purana gives a account of Durvasa's
birth. In this version, Atri performed severe
penance to propitiate the Supreme Being in order to
obtain a son by Anasuya who would be just like
Him. Pleased with him, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva
(being but different manifestations of the Supreme)
blessed the sage that portions of themselves would
be born as his sons. In due course, Anasuya bore
Soma (Brahma's incarnation), Dattatreya (Vishnu's),
and Durvasa (Shiva's).
