All About Ganagapur (Afzalpur taluk of Kalaburagi district in Karnataka)
Shree kshetra Ganagapur Dattatreya temple is a very holy place and rich in culture, tradition which is followed by many people around the world as Guru Sthanam.
Reason behind worshipping Guru Dattatreya is, if you want to follow Vishnu tradition you will be going to Vishnu temples, if you want to follow Shankara you will be following Shiva temples, But if you follow Guru Dattatreya you will be following everyone i.e. Bramha, Vishnu and Maheshwara i.e. complete universe (Refer Guru Charitra Chaper no: 4 where God Dattatreya born).
This place is very important "Darshaneeya Kshetra (Must to been seen)". The place is connected to second incarnation of God Dattatreya "Sri Nrusimha Saraswathy Swamy".
Importance of this kshetra is explained by ShreeGuru which can be seen in "Shree Gurucharitra" (Life history of God Dattatreya). This Nirgun Math is adorned with the Nirguna Paduka's which are very unique in nature and look. You never find any other "Nirgun Padukas" all around the globe except in Ganagapur.
Places to Visit in Ganagapur :
We have been visiting Gangapur for the last 15 years and have been staying in this place every time very dedicated and homely. They guide us on the poja formalities and help us to have a good darshan. The stay is comfortable and the food is very good.
Eventhough we come from south india (Chennai) we don't feel out of place. Very friendly and human approach. I first travelled to Gangapur with my 6 months old son, they use to help me with all the necessary requirements to take care of him. Now he is 15 years old and we will stay in their place whenever we visit Gangapur temple. This place is quite close to the temple and the stay has always been comfortable.
Getting the dharsham of shri guru from the comfort of our homes is a blessing you have provided us evryday..more devotion towards the god happened since then..thanks for brining me onto da spirutual line with jus a msg evryday from the temple..digambara digambara shripada vallabha dhigambara🙏🙏🙏
Namasthe, Ganagapura.. name itself creates divine feeling.. Datta Nirguna paduka.. creates divine vibrations🙏🙏🙏🙏 but it's always difficult to go directly to sannidhana and get blessings of Datta.. even though we got the prasada blessings of my lord , darshan of my lord by people like vallabh dinkarbhatt pujari 🙏🙏🙏🙏 through internet, they inform regularly about temple poojas, homas and if we do any seva through online , the prompt on time delivery of prasadam is the bestest work by them, thanks a lot 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
Vallabh Guruji. It was an inexplicable and most holy experience we had at Deval Ganagapur, Sangam and other Thirtha kshetras during our pilgrimage. It was mainly due to your help and guidance - we immensely thank you for the same. I pray to The God Sri Guru Deva Dutta to bless us with many more such opportunities. Even when you are not available, your co-priest graced us with a great and holy experience with The Utsava Murthy rituals and Darshan Bhagya. Thanks for your arrangement.
Getting in touch with a Shri Vallabh Guruji remotely at Gangapur was divine experience.. Our family could perform various Seva guided by Shri Vallabh Guruji. It helped us improve our moral during tough times. Our family traditions to worship Lotd Dattatyaya continued. Shri Vallabh Guruji is very prompt in response and takes care of devotee like father. Our family will always be greatful for connecting us with Ganagapur Kshetra. Avadhoot Chintan Shri Guru Dev Dutt ! Guru Charitra Parayan is a journey and we are looking forward to be with Shri Vallabh Guruji to offer our prayers devotion to Lord Duttatraya !
Sri Guru Datta , is the supreme Guru who is still moving around on earth Incognito and the anchor during the roughest and darkest times, you will always see the blessings and protection from him just by remembering and chanting his name, his love is 1000 crores the time of a mother's love and Sri kshetra Ganagapur is the place he still takes madhukari biksha even now incognito .For anyone who would like to perform any seva at that temple , Vallabh Pujari is a well established and trust worthy hereditary priest through whom you can perform any services.
When you face difficulties, its the Almighty that paves you the way towards your destiny. The Parayan Seva was performed, where I was guided by Vallabh Guruji, although not being in India. While I continue reading the Gurucharithra Addhaya 14 & 18, I have received the results which I was expecting. For anyone staying in India or outside the country and would like to perform any seva at Kshetra Ganagapur, Vallabh Pujari would be the right person on whom you can trust and perform any sevas, as he his well established and trust worthy hereditary priest. 🙏🏻 || Shri Gurudev Datta ||
