KHANDOBA - JEJURI

Khandoba is what is known as a god of Sakama bhakti i.e. he is supposed to fulfil whatever desires are expressed before him by the devotee. This god being essentially,a god of the masses,the number of such vows taken and gifts made or other acts performed in fulfilment of such vows is very great. And the forms are varied. Devotees come here and ask for all sorts of things. Some are childless and pray the god that they get one. Others want money, still others desire a particular matrimonial alliance.

All come and utter a vow before the god, if their desire is satisfied they would do such and such a thing. What is this such and such a thing? Of course anybody can offer anything but there are certain traditional forms through which ’this satisfaction of the deity is made. The most ordinary and now the most commonly used method is of making an offering - naivedya of bread and cooked sweetened gram or mutton. Secondly a ceremonial worship can be offered.
