<p>Shri Gajanan did not reveal about his past and did not encourage people to search for it. However, Shri Gajanan Avdhoot was first noticed collecting left over food items in a garbage dump on the outskirts of village Shegaon in Mahrashtra by a person named Bankatlal Aggarwal. The Maharaj, although having a shining and extremely healthy body, was at that time in a superconscious state without a sense of his body; for he had no clothes on his person.</p>
Bankatlal, who had earlier association with some spiritually advanced persons, sensed that the apparently crazy person collecting food from the dustbin might be a ‘Siddha’. It was 23rd February, 1878. Bankatlal, along with a friend named Damodar Pant Kulkarni approached Maharaj with humility and asked “Maharaj, why are you eating left over food, if you are hungry, I will certainly make arrangements for you. “However, Maharaj paid no heed to his words and continued to eat his food in a state of utter detachment. Seeing this, Bankatlal ran to the Ashram situated nearby, collected whatever food he could, and came back to Maharaj. As he offered food, Maharaj mixed up all the food items and gulped it down.
It may be understood that the saints at this level actually do not have a sense of taste as they are beyond the body state. Bankatlal, thereafter, went away to collect some drinking water. By the time he returned, he was shocked to see Maharaj happily drinking water from the reservoir meant for cattle. Bankatlal was convinced that he was in the presence of no ordinary mortal but a highly evolved spiritual entity. He prostrated in reverence and asked for blessings. By the time he lifted his head, Maharaj had vanished from there.
<p>He took Samadhi (i.e. his soul left for the heavenly abode and his earthly remains buried) on on 8 September 1910, and the date is marked as Samadhi-din by his disciples (ऋषी पंचमी ). The date of his first appearance is also marked as an auspicious day.</p>
<p> His devotees believe him as incarnation of Lord Ganesha and Lord Dattatreya</p>
<p>There are lot of similarities between Shree Swami Samarth and Shree Gajanan Maharaj. Both were Paramahans Sanyasi, both were AjanBahu and many others. Thus many people also believe that Shree Gajanan is none other than Shree Swami Samarth. However, it is really immaterial whether Shri Gajanan Maharaj was the disciple of Shri Swami or not as, both were the forms of Supreme Brahman, who appeared on earth to deliver and liberate the souls from the worldly fetters.</p>
<p>The Sadgurus are the ocean of love and mercy, and they are incapable of getting annoyed or angry-far to speak of being revengeful to the creations of God. That is why the epithets “Kripa Sindhu” (Ocean of grace) or “Daya Nidhi” (Abode of Mercy) etc. are used for them.</p>
<p>Sadguru Gajanan Maharaj from Shegaon is the direct manifestation of supreme consciousness. ‘Gani Gan Ganat Bote’ is his mantra. But it is popular as ‘Gan Gan ganat Bote’.Yogi Gajanan Baba is also known as ‘Gin Gine baba’ or ‘Ganpat baba’.</p>
