Arrival of Shri Ganesh at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram

Hari Om Dear Friends,
The long wait for Ganapati Bappa got finally over today. Amidst great fanfare, with Shraddhavaans dancing to the drum beats Ganapati Bappa was brought to Happy Home to our beloved Sadguru, Bapu’s residence. The huge procession started on the dot of 6.15 p.m. near Amarsons on Linking Road, Bandra and reached Happy Home at around 7.45 pm. Before that, the idol of Datta Bappa and Ganapati Bappa arrived around 6.00 pm. Thereafter, we all chanted ‘Ramo Rajamani Sada Vijayate..’, ‘Padmaseenam Shyamavarnam….’, ‘Avadhoota Chintan Shree Gurudeva Datta’, ‘Om Namashchandikaayay’ and ‘Nanda Ramanaa Aniruddha, Aniruddha, Aniruddha. Within a few moments, the entire atmosphere in that area had undergone a complete change. The intense devotional fervour of Shraddhavaans dancing to the rhythm of the drumbeats and taashaas, teams of lezim dancing tirelessly with the name of their Sadguru on their lips, all had the necessary impact. There was hardly a passerby who did not stop to watch our procession with a sense of awe. As usual, the entire procession went so smoothly, without disturbing the vehicular traffic, that the police authorities did not have any anxious moments whatsoever. When we turned the corner to proceed to the entrance of Happy Home, we could see Bapu, Aai and Dada standing on the podium waiting to welcome Ganapati Bappa and their other Shraddhavaan friends, who had participated in the procession. Bapu, Aai and Dada greeted all those who had participated in the procession, before proceeding to receive Ganapati Bappa. Through this post, I am inviting each one of you, my friends, to come to our beloved Bapu’s home for the Ganeshotsav celebrations. Those who are staying outstation and are unable to come to Happy Home, will also get an opportunity to have darshan of Ganapati Bappa and also that of Bapu, Nandai and Suchit Dada through our deferred live broadcast. We intend to start the deferred live broadcast from today at 10.00 am, commencing with the pooja.
