CHINCHWAD - GANAPATHI MANDIR

GANESA SAMPRADAYA - ITS FOUNDER

This famous kshetra is a gift of Morayagosavi to the nation, the principal founder-propagator of, Ganesh Sampradaya in Maharastra. This illustrious Ganesopasaka was the son of a great devotee called Vamanbhat Saligram, who on migration from Karnataka settled down at Morgaon as early as in the fourteenth century. The boy Morays displayed extra-ordinary spiritual powers in his childhood, but met with early death by snake bite. Due to inexplicable mystery of God, One Nayan Bharat!, who chanced to be present at that time, revived the boy by his soul force and taught him Ganesh 'Mahamantra', which when chanted for years, -he was fortunate enough to find the image of Ganesh in the Amukush thirtha at Morgaon. Deeming it heaven sent, he installed it at Chinchwad and built a modest sized temple. As it was built and maintained by a celebrated Ganesh Sampradaya founder, it acquired immense tame in matter of few years. The conduct of prayer services is found to be so efficacious and boons conferred on the devout are so numerous, that they catapulted its fame to unknown peaks. As its popularity increased by (caps and bounds, proper round the clock administration was found a necessity. So Moraya Gosavi shifted his score of action from Morgaon to Chinchwad and dwelt there till his niryana, although making periodical visits to Morgaon that inspired and turned him a well-known founder of great sampradaya.
