Shri Gajanan Maharaj 108th Samadhi Day Celebration September 14, 2018
Shri Gajanan Maharaj of Shegaon, was a supreme saint from ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra, India. HE appeared in Shegaon on 23rd February 1878 as a youngster and entered in ‘Maha-samadhi’ on 8th of September 1910 (Rishi Panchami, a day after Ganesh Chaturthi). In a short period of 32 years, HE enlightened many people by his legendary charisma. His devotees believe HIM as incarnation of Lord Dattatreya like Shri Swami Samartha of Akkalkot and Sri Sai Baba of Shirdi. Even after 108 years of Samadhi, his devotees still experience his true bliss and charisma. ‘Sant Shri Gajanan Maharaj Sansthan’ is the largest temple trust in the Vidarbha region which is very well known for its highly disciplined, honest, spiritual, medical and social work in mostly rural area or needy people.
