Chappan Vinayak Darshan Yatra

Yatra Significance

"There is no father better than Lord Vishwanath, there is no mother better than Goddess Parvati either and no one can find any son better than Ganesha in all the Lokas."

When Lord Shiva left Kashi and started residing at the Mountains of Mandarachal, one day, he wanted to know about the situation and condition of Kashi. To get the news of Kashi he sent many deities and ganas (followers), Yoginis (Holy Ladies), God Sun and Lord Brahma to Kashi, but no one returned to him. Then, he asked his beloved son Lord Ganesha to go to Kashi.

Ganesha Enters in Kashi

By the order of Lord Shiva, Shri Ganesha dressed as a Brahmin, entered to Varanasi in an auspicious time. Lord Ganesha, through his intellect and arts allured all the men, women, the King & Queens. All the inhabitants of Kashi became the staunch follower of Ganesha. By doing this Lord Ganesha also felt highly enlightened and lived in Kashi by making his different statues.

When Lord Vishnu dethroned King Divodasa* from Kashi, Lord Vishwakarma reconstructed and re-established Kashi and Lord Vishwanath entered in Kashi along with all his ganas & followers, he first of all embraced Lord Ganesha and said to all the devtas that the credit of my re-entry in this extraordinary Varanasi Puri goes to my son Ganesha only.

Lord Vishwanath further said in all the Lokas if any thing becomes unachievable by father, the son makes that possible, this has happened with me too. To make this Kashi available for me this child Ganesha tried the best of his tact & intellect. Indeed I have the extraordinary son because the Kashi, for which I was so worried my son Ganesha made it available to me.

After that Lord Visheshwar instructed all the devtas accompanying him, by telling about the different posts of Dhundhiraj Lord Vishwanath said and first of all he did the prayer of Ganesha (This prayer of Lord Shiva is known as Dhundhiraj Strota.)

Lord Maheshwar said that, those good people who will chant this stotra, created by me will remain unaffected even from the biggest hurdles and problems in Life. Those who will chant this stotra near the Dhundhiraj, all the eternal supernatural powers will be at his service always. Those who will chant this stotra with calm and lucid mind will get rid from all his sins and bad element of mind.

After Saying this and being worshipped and honoured by all the devtas and Lord Brahma, Lord Vishwanath in a very enlightened mood blessed all of them and entered in the magnificent new building constructed by Lord Vishwakarma.

"Those who worship these 56 Vinayaks attain divine knowledge and wisdom even after the death at distant places. Those who recite the Dhundhiraj Stotra and the story of fifty six Vinayaks their souls get purified, these people get success at every step. By recalling and worshipping these 56 Vinayaks at any place pulls out its worshippers out of the abysmal ocean of troubles & sorrow. No hurdles come in the ways of those who recite and listen to these stotras and stories and he become free from all sins"
