“Ganapatipule has a special significance – because He is Mahaganesha. The [[Ganesha]] at [[Mooladhara]] becomes Mahaganesha in the Virata, that is the brain . . . The main root, as they call the taproot, the main root is innocence, is Shri Ganesha. And He becomes Mahaganesha in Ganapatipule. . . Here He’s surrounded by the Father Principle, the Guru Principle of the sea, the ocean – the Indian Ocean. That is, here He becomes a Guru . . . Here, as we see in Ganapatipule, Shri Ganesha is in its complete matured form; so that we develop also our Mahaganesha within ourselves . . . [https://www.amruta.org/1986/01/01/ (1986/01/01)]
  
Just before the programmes at Ganapathiphule started, Mr. Chavhan and seven yogis went with Shri Mataji to do a public programme in Ratnagiri. After the programme was finished, they were to catch a ferry back to Mumbai. On being told that this ferry would be very late, Shri Mataji said that they should still leave now for the ferry. The ferry was to be taken from a place called Jaigad. I knew that it was way too early and also that there was nothing to do there for timepass.

“The other day somebody was asking Me how did You find Ganapatipule. Actually, I didn’t know, and in Maharashtra this is not a very well-known place. They go to [Ashtavinayakas|[[Ashta Vinayak]]] but not to this Mahaganapati. They had no idea. But I was coming back from Ratnagiri and I saw really a very big star on top of this temple. But nobody could see it, that’s the problem is. At that time, no sahaja yogis could see it.

So, I told them, let us follow this star. It was a very big, big one, unusually big, not like a star, but quite a big, big star, very unusual. But they couldn’t see it. Other people who were with Me they said that we can’t see it. I said, doesn’t matter. So, I told them to turn it, turn it from this Hadkamba they call it, and let us go on this another road. And we just followed it. They of course listened to Me, and they did not argue. And we were travelling, travelling, we were quite late, but still I [said], “Doesn’t matter, it’s alright, let’s go”.

By the time we reached Ganapatipule, it was the dawn, beautiful dawn, I can’t forget that. And in that dawn, we

see such a beautiful place here where we are now. And I said, this is the place where we have to be, where we have to get all the sahaja yogis to. Of course, you know that [[Rabindranath Tagore]] has already described about this place that people will come here from all over the world and at the shore of Bharat this will be done. All these are predicted, have been done already, but how miraculously I discovered this place is very surprising as those three great men discovered Christ.

And the place was really blessed and was very beautifully vibrated. I stayed here for two days and I decided that this is the place we have to take”... [https://www.amruta.org/1999/12/25/christmas-puja-1999/ (1999/12/25)]
  
‘Mother,’ I told Shri Mataji, ‘there is a Ganesha temple on the sea, which we could go and see. It is only about a half an hour away, so we will easily be back in time.’

It’s not a place you have come for a holiday or just for some sort of a relaxation or for some enjoyment or sleeping or anything, but you have come here for a penance, for a tapasya, to clear out yourself completely. This is a place of Shri Ganesha’s temple which is not very much frequented by people and it’s still very, very pure. And I thought that the Ganesh principle will be awakened in you which is the source of everything.[https://www.amruta.org/1985/12/31/the-innocence-of-a-child-ganapatipule-1985/ (1985/12/31)]
 
 
Shri Mataji said it was okay. We all packed into cars and went to see this Ganesha temple. It is at sea level and sometimes the sea enters into the temple at high tide. Shri Mataji went inside the temple, where the swayambhu was at sea level, to check the vibrations. Then Shri Mataji came out and told us that this swayambhu is very awakened and very powerful. In fact, it is much more powerful than the astavinayakas in Maharashtra. These are the eight Ganesha swayambhus in and around Maharashtra — swayambhus from Mother Earth.
 
 
 
‘Why didn’t you notice this before?’ Shri Mataji asked Chavhan, and he said that he only came here now for the first time after Sahaja Yoga. Shri Mataji then said that this place would be used for our international seminars. Shri Mataji spoke about the swayambhu. It has got the powerful vibration of Shri Ganesha and also the very powerful vibration of sea, void, power of Adi Guru Dattatreya. So by coming here, at least two chakras can get cleared out, Mooladhara and Void. Chavhan then started thinking about how to arrange all of this and thinking, ‘I don’t know anyone here to do this’ — and getting in a state.
 
 
 
‘So you are now worried about how to do this,’ Shri Mataji said. ‘Don’t worry. I will do everything and will tell you what to do in good time and automatically everything will work out.’ After this, we all decided to go and watch the sunset and have a foot soak.
 
 
 
‘Now I am going to show you a miracle. Look out over the ocean and tell me what you see,’ Shri Mataji said.
 
‘Mother, we see the waves all coming in our direction from all the sides. The waves are coming towards us.’
 
‘Now watch. I will change the direction of the waves,’ Shri Mataji said.
 
 
 
Shri Mataji then walked towards the south and the waves all went in that direction. Then Shri Mataji walked in the other direction and the waved all went the other way. Then, when Shri Mataji stood still, all of the waves also stood still. They seemed to be standing, waiting for the next instruction.
 
 
 
‘You may be doubting, and thinking that possibly the wind is doing this, so I will show you again,’ Shri Mataji said. She then did everything all over again. Shri Mataji said this is the second time that She had done this miracle. The first time was in America. After they had finished at the Ganesha temple, they then went back to Jaigad to wait for the ferry. By this time, the sun had set and they were all waiting at the port.
 
 
 
‘Now I will show you all another miracle. The Ganesha temple is in that direction.’ Shri Mataji said, and pointed, ‘Now look. Do you see anything over there?’
 
‘No, Mother, we can’t see anything,’ they all said.
 
 
 
Shri Mataji again pointed in the same direction and told them to look again. As they looked, they could see, slowly appearing a huge stream of light. It was like a huge cylindrical circle of light, as if thousands of volts were coming out of Mother Earth and going straight into the heavens.
 
 
 
‘There is no other light around here, not even moonlight, so that light is coming from the Ganesha temple,’ said Shri Mataji. ‘This light will not stop until I tell it to. This light is coming from the swayambhu of Shri Ganesha and I am taking it out.’ Shri Mataji then asked us if we all had seen this light and should She stop it. All the Sahaja Yogis present said that they had all seen it and that Shri Mataji could now stop it from coming out of the Ganesha temple. The light was there for about ten minutes. We all are very lucky to see such a thing and I have not seen anything like that since.

Ganapatipule is an ancient pilgrim centre on the western coast of Maharashtra known for its serene beach and its Swayambhu Ganapati temple. It is the only location in the world where Ganesha meets the Father principle, the ocean.
 
 
 
During the sixteenth century, a villager left his village. On his journey he stumbled upon the naturally formed Ganapati (Ganesha) swyambhu. He settled there and built a temple. People subsequently gathered and gradually settled in the area establishing the village of Ganapatipule.
 
 
 
The temple is on the beach at the base of a hill considered sacred and a perennial spring flows from the hill to a pond besides the Temple.
