 LORD KHANDOBA OF JAJURI

Lord Khandoba, a very popular god of Maharastrians, next to that of Vitoba translates this magic chant into action to teach eternal values to no less than the ruthless bigots like Aurangazeb, who offering savalaksha gold coins as an act of prayaschitta took to flight, followed soldiers running helter skelter pursued by swarm of honey bees. Instead of giving trouble to the priests and princes He asserted himself and assumed the form of bee. Anon he sent its brood in swarms millions, whose dreadful air-raid proved mightier than armies huge and weapons mighty. Moresover, this god of masses ordained the worship of his own sworn foes along with him i.e., causing their images placed on His either side on the same pedestal - a feature unique, unheard of in the history of mankind. His exhibition of pugnacity is equally matched by the display of magnanimity that has no parallels. The sight of God and Satan on the same pedestal and ordering veneration to be extended equally at the same time is unknown and undreamt of, nor the Mother earth points to another similar place anywhere on her person. And many more special features are abounding in the twin shrines built on the Jayadri, popularly known as Jeguri in the state of Maharashtra.
