GANAGAPUR - DATTATREYA

In the evening, by eight o’clock the third session of worship is held. This consists of mainly the singing of aratis and prayers. A small procession led by the bhaldars -mace bearers-and consisting of the pujaris and salkaris, and other devotees circumambulates the shrine three times. All along the way the Indukoti slotra is recited. Now this procession stops on its way to sing aratis to the other subsidiary deities like Hanuman and Nrisimha that are around the shrine. Next, aratis are sung before Vighnahar Chintamani and then Karpur-arati of the padukas. Tirth and angara are distributed to all present. Mantrapushpa follows this, the last but one rite being the singing of the Shejarati. At ten o’clock the pancha-padi (five versed) bhajan is recited and the day comes to and end. This routine is slightly altered on every Thursday. The evening programme on that day includes the palkhi or palanquin procession. The utsavamurti of the Guru is seated in the palanquin decked out in excellent garments and ornaments. The procession goes round the shrine thrice, special songs written for the occasion being recited along the way. The palkhi is then brought to a halt, arati is sung and the programme from Karpurarati onwards follows as usual.
