Sri Kshetra Ganagapur  
  • Dattajayanti Festival 2017 at Ganagapur

  • Shree Kshetra Ganagapur (Deval Ghangapur), One of the most famous Dattatreya Peethas, is associated with Shri Narasimha Sarasvati Swami, an incarnation of Lord Dattatreya. It stands on the bank of the river Bhima in Afzalpur taluka of Gulbarga district in Karnataka. This Nirguna Math is adorned with the Nirguna Padukas. The water of the rivers Bhima and Amaraja, especially at the spot of their confluence, are considered extremely holy.

    Shree Kshetra Ganagapura is a holy place of Lord Dattatreya and the place is very important “Darshaneeya Kshetra”. The Kshetra Mahatmya (Importance) was explained by Shri Guru and it can be seen in the Adhyay 49 of “Shri Guru Charitra”. There is an assurance from Shri Guru that he would forever abide at Ganagapur and go round the village for ‘Biksha’ at 12 noon which is literally true even today. Offering “Maadhukari” to the people at Ghangapur and taking Biksha from atleast 5 houses is of Great Importance at this holy place. Even today also, the process is continuing and the devotees are having faith that Lord Dattatreya is taking biksha everyday at Ganagapur Kshetra. Shri Guru Narasimha Saraswati Swami Maharaj confirmed the Same and it can be seen in Gurucharitra Adhyay (chapter) 21-22.

    At the time of Antardhan (Avatara Samapti), Shri Guru said to the Disciples and Residents of Ganagapur as follows;

    "Vasati Rahani Sangamase Jate Nitha Bhikshese Taya Vare Ganagapurase Madhyana Kala Pareyasa"

    "You need not worry. I shall stay at this Ganagapur Kshetra secretly. I shall have bath at the Bheema-Amaraja Sangam in the Early Morning. In the mid day, I shall come to Ganagapur Math and accept Bhiksha in this village and accept your Pooja, devotional services in the Form of Nirguna Padukas at the Nirgun Muth. From the view point of the public, I am going away from this place. My living presence will be experienced by any one who bathes in the Bheema-Amaraja Sangam and takes darshan of my Nirgun Padukas here. I will receive Poojas at this Kshetra in the form of Nirguna Padukas”.
