MAHARASHTRA TOURS

About Shri Gagangiri Maharaj

Shri Gagangiri Maharaj was born as Shripad Patankar in a village named Mandure in Patan, Satara district of Maharashtra. Patankar family was a royal family and a direct descendant of Chalukya. At the tender age of seven, he left home and went to a Matha of Nath sampradaya which was located at Battees-Shirala. At a very early age, he took Sannyasa.

 After getting initiated in a monastic order he started traveling with various Mahants, sages of Nath Sampradaya. During pilgrimages, he learned yoga and several occult and religious practices. He traveled to far and wide places such as Nepal, Bhutan, Manas Sarovar, Gaurishankar, Gorakshdarbar, Gorakhpur, and Pashupatinath and returned to Almora. Finally, he traveled through the Valley of Ganga, Himachal Pradesh, and reached Badrika Ashram.

 Gagangiri Maharaj was extremely tired as a result of his peregrinations and he decided to rest in a cave. When he was relaxing, a sage wearing saffron robes came there from the mountains. He sprinkled water from his kamandalu, on the face of Gagangiri Maharaj. He also gave him some kind of green grass to eat which resembled coriander leaves. For his penance, he had prepared mattresses of grass. He found his mattresses growing like living vegetation. This was considered an experience, where the Tantrik technique is perfected. He did a number of Kaya Kalpas. In this process, he invented several new concepts in Tantrik techniques and proved them true. He did penance at a number of places like Mauli Kund, Mauli Kada, Zanzu water, Mausame Kada, Kasarbari, Ginger water, Sat-barkund, Holi Kada, Margaj water, Jungledeo patti, Shirale etc.

 During monsoon, he stayed in the cave at Garbhagiri, Gagangiri. He did penance in a pond near the river at Sangashi, Vazar, Vesraf, Palsambe, Ramling, etc. Later he went to Vijaydurg, in the Konkan area from where he reached Bombay by steamer. During 1945 to 1948, he did Kayakalpa at Angale, near Rajapur in Konkan. As more and more people benefited from his meditation, more and more people started worshipping and respecting him, and his reputation spread all around. In those days Ministers like Yashwantrao Chavan, Balasaheb Desai, Rajarambapu Patil, Kapse, and several respected officers used to worship him. Swamiji then decided to travel all over India alone on foot and accordingly his journey started. At this time, his fair skin was glowing with health. Attired in the saffron robes of a sanyasi, he was revered by people. He traveled on foot from Haridwar to Delhi, Bhopal, etc. At Bhopal, while he was taking a rest after bathing near a tank, the princely ruler of Kolhapur and his retinue happened to be nearby while on a brief visit. Swamiji's mother tongue is Marathi, a conversation between him and the Kolhapur ruler's retinue ensued resulting in the ruler requesting Swamiji to accompany him to Kolhapur. In 1932 the Raja of Kolhapur had been to the Dajipur jungle for hunting. Swamiji who had accompanied him stayed back in the jungle, where he lived from 1932 to 1940. He spent these years in meditation and deep reflection. In Bombay between 1948 and 1950, he stayed in Dadi Hirji Parsi graveyards, near the temple of Maruti, at shidi near Walkeshwar. Guru pournima (full moon day of Ashadha month for worshipping the Guru) used to be celebrated on a big scale at Birla Kreeda Kendra in Bombay. In spite of all these preoccupations in respect of society, he continued his penance for over 60 years. Maharaj also called upon the youth to come forward and revive the glory of Hinduism. He was awarded "Vishwagaurav Vibhushan" by the Parliament of the World's Religions.
