This year Lord Ganesha has come to my dear friend Jugals house with a very clear cut message , and Lord Ganesha is going to make sure that Jugal Bachelor Boy No1 gets married and settles down as this is the earnest prayers of his dad my patron and benefactor Mr Jagan Chawla .


Mr Jagan Chawla is a devout Lord Ganesha and Ma Sherawallia bhakt , and divinity in both forms have always smiled on the Chawlas , both the divinities jointly gave his daughter Sheetal a soul mate Gautam Ahuja a fabulous couple and than filled their house with more happiness when they became parents of Rehansh..the apple of the eyes of the Ahujas and the Chawlas.

So Lord Ganesha is the Invoker of Happiness Bliss and Good Tidings , and though my life too has been a pothole of problems in LIfe ..Jagan Chawla my dear friend has prayed for me at Vaishnodevi and stood by me ,, last night I was st…

वक्रतुंड महाकाय कोटिसूर्यसमप्रभ ।

निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा ॥

गजाननं भूतगणादिसेवितं कपित्थजंबूफलचारुभक्षणम्‌ ।

उमासुतं शोकविनाशकारकं नमामि विघ्नेश्वरपादपङ्कजम्‌ ॥

सुमुखश्चैकदंतश्च कपिलो गजकर्णकः ।

लम्बोदरश्च विकटो विघ्ननाशो गणाधिपः ।

धूम्रकेतुर्गणाध्यक्षो भालचन्द्रो गजाननः ।

द्वादशैतानि नामानि यः पठेच्छृणुयादपि ।

विद्यारंभे विवाहे च प्रवेशे निर्गमे तथा ।

संग्रामे संकटे चैव विघ्नस्तस्य न जायते ॥

GSB Lord Ganesha The Healer of Human Souls

GSB Lord Ganesha The Healer of Human Souls, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. www.gsbsevamandal.org


General Information:


The GSB Seva Mandal's idol at King's Circle, Mumbai is a legend. This Ganpati is a legend for its miraculous healing powers. This Ganpati is said to have cured devotees of ailments ranging from diabetes to cancer. It has been attracting the faithful ever since 1954, when it was first installed here by Gowd Saraswat Brahmins from South Kanara who were grateful to the city for offering them livelihoods.

During the Annual 5 - Day Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrations, Sixty priests from Karnataka perform the Daily Pujas here after which devotees are served the mahaprasad on a banana leaf. There is no recorded music at this Ganpati mandal. Traditional Indian musical instruments that are used in South Indian temples accompany the pujas. When a devotee's wish is fulfilled, he offers jewellery or coconuts worth his weight to the Ganpati in thanksgiving.
