This Utsav is being celebrated since the year 2009. The Maghi Ganapati Janmotsav is celebrated on the day of birth of Lord Ganesh. It was on this day that Goddess Parvati created Lord Ganesh who is the Ghanpran of the Universe. This day falls every year on the Chaturthi or the fourth day of the month of Magh (of Hindu calendar). The story of birth of Lord Ganesh is explicitly mentioned in ‘Matruvatsalyavindanam’ which is authored by Param Poojya Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu.
All the Shraddhavaans who worship Lord Brahmasapati with complete faith are graced by Him. The poojan of Shree Ashthavinayak is also done during Maghi Ganapati Janmotsav.
The mechanism which Lord Parmatma operationalizes in our body at all its three dimensions (Trividh Deha) so that we get the grace of Lord Parmeshwar, is infact Lord Ganpati. There are eight important centres of this mechanism in our bodies which represent each of the Ashtavinayaks and hence these Ashtavinayaks are related with the eight senses (Ashtabhav) in devotees that get activated during worship. This festival helps the devotees to keep the eight centres of our body operational in the right way and also helps in receiving Nav Ankur Aishvarye (9 forms of wealth seeds). Hence Shri Aniruddha, organizes this Maghi Ganeshotsav out of His sheer unconditional love towards the Shraddhavans.
As told by Sadguru Shri Aniruddha, Shraddhavaans chant the following mantra 72 times during the Ganpati festival as well as on Sankashti Chaturthi falling on Tuesdays.
VISHWA GHANA PRANAY SARVA VIGHNA NIVARKAY NAMO NAMAHA”
To receive the Nav Ankur Aishvarya (9 forms of wealth seeds) of the Parmatma and to keep the eight Centres (Ashthavinayak) of body operational in right manner one must take the darshan of Shree Maghi Ganapati in the form of Shree Brahmanaspati.
