The origins of Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj are untraceable in history.
A Banyan tree in old Shegaon. Two youngsters noticed a peculiar personality strongly built. Fair in complexion. Young in age. Peculiar calmness and satisfaction on the face. Searching rice particles on the patrawalies. And chanting Gan Gan Ganat Bote. No effect on the face of the scorching heat of summer noontime. That was the first appearance of Gajanan Maharaj in tiny Shegaon Town. The personality was so impressive that the tow youngsters, Bankatlal and Damodar were attracted to the charm, And then began the legendary life; his legendary charisma!
