GANAGAPUR - DATTATREYA

The daily worship and other rituals are quite elaborate, but do not differ much from those seen at other centres like Kolhapur. Early morning at three o’clock is the Kakad-arati. After this, the puja of the previous day is removed and themahapuja begins. The other rituals, the sixteen upacharas are offered without touching the padukas. Vighnahar Chintamani is then worshipped, the puja of the other deities in the vicinity of the math is then performed, On this being completed, the prath or morning arati is sung, bringing to an end the puja. The whole ceremony takes around three hours, beginning at three and ending by six in the morning. The padukas are placed during the course of this puja in front of the door of the innermost chamber of the garbhagriha. From this time onwards upto the presentation of the maha naivedya, that is, approximately till one o’clock, the padukas are open to view- darshan for any one. Similarly, all offerings including various types of pujas are to be done during this period. After the maha- naivedya is presented the padukas are removed from the door and placed in front of the image so that they can be viewed only through the small window in the wall.
