GANAGAPUR -DATTATREYA

Datta jayanti falls on the fourteenth day of the month of Margashirsha. A fairly large fair is held on this occasion. A sizeable crowd gathers together. The celebrations are most elaborate. A temporary shrine is erected in the outer mandap, an image of Shri Vishnu, consisting only of a mask- mukhavata-is placed in it. Ceremonial worship is performed. At twelve in the afternoon the image is placed in a cradle and songs recited to the child’. Suntha and gul are distributed as prasad. Palakhi is taken out in the evening and then the utsava murti is again placed in the mandap .Throughout the night programmes like kirtans, bhajans and singing takeplace. In the morning, the Wit, a kind of dramatic performance based on the dashavataras is exhibited.Again Some sweets are distributed and thecelebrations come to an end.

The first four days of the second half of the month of Magha are celebrated as the death anniversary of Shri Nrisimha Sarasvati. Ceremonial worship. Palanquin Processions and kirtans etc. constitute the main items. The most important aspect is the worship of the sanyasins and a bath in the holy waters of the Bhima.
