Shree Pragat Din Utsav

Shri Gajanan appeared in Shegaon town. 
In Magh on 7th of the waining moon.
He had worn just a shirt,
Had a dry gourd as his pitcher,
A clay pipe for his smoke
And nothing else all together
He had an aura around him,
Eyes focoused on his nose.
Indicative of saintly trait.
He had the radiance of morning glow.

(from- Shri Gajanan Vijay Granth - An English version as Jay Gajanan)
