Trip to meet Lord Ganesha
Lenyadri is the birthplace of Lord Ganesh.
Meaning of Ashtavinayak Asht = Eight and Vinayak = Lord Ganesha
A Trends while starting Ashtavinayak Trip.
You have to make a (Sankalpa). You have to bring one coconut and told God and pray that you are going on Astavinayak Trip.
You have to bring this coconut to every Ashtavinayak place. After completing the trip you have to come back to the same place from where start your journey. After this, your Sankalp will finish off.
You need a minimum of two and a half-day for this trip.
If you start from Mumbai, India. Varad Vinayak is the nearest Ashtavinayak Ganesh temple.
I suggest starting from Varad Vinayak. This is the only place where you can touch and fill Lord Ganesh’s statue one to one. Temple open for 24 hours.
