When Ganesha idols sipped milk

Do you remember September 21, 1995? It was a special day for devotees of Lord Ganesha. The lord’s idols began sipping milk. It happened in India and spread later to the entire world. In some temples idols of Lord Shiva and Lord Naga also accepted milk. Even non-devotees in countries like the US, UK, Kenya and South Africa experienced the wonderful miracle.
 
Did you witness this miracle?

Insured for Rs 1 crore


 
 
 
Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple is a temple dedicated to the Lord Ganesha in Pune.  The temple is popular in Maharashtra and is visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.

The main Ganesha idol is insured for a sum of 1 crore.

History of Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple
The temple was founded in 1893 by Dagadusheth. It is believed that he lost his son in a plague outbreak which plunged him and his wife in a state of depression. To bring him out of this state, his Guru advised him to make idols of Lord Ganesha and Shree Datta Maharaj and take care of them like he would father his son. It was then that the very first idol of Ganesha was made.

Lord Ganeshji Festival – Did You know?

 

 

 
Ganesh worship in Japan
 
Scholars commonly date the presence of Ganesha in Japan with the age of Kukai (774- 834), the founder of the Shingon sect of Japanese Esoteric Buddhism. Ganesha’s most popular form in Japan is the dual-Vinayaka or the Embracing Kangiten. Two tall figures, elephant-headed but human-bodied, male and female, stand in embrace. The female wears a jeweled crown, a patched monks robe, and a red surplice. Also called the Deva of Bliss, Kankiten is invoked both for enlightenment and for worldly gains. Kakiten-Vinayaka is offered radishes, wine, and fresh fruits. Whosoever fulfills the rituals of the dual Kangiten is believed to attain success in all worldly endeavors.
May Kangiten bless us all!
