Sant Narhari Sonar Punyatithi 2024 Date

Sant Narhari Sonar was an ardent devotee of Lord Vithoba and Lord Shiva and is believed to have had the darshan of Lord Vithoba (Sri Hari Vishnu). Sant Narhari Sonar Punyatithi 2024 date is February 27. A goldsmith by profession, Sant Narhari Sonar got the darshan of Vithoba when he tried to measure the waist size of the murti of Vithoba at Pandharpur Vitthal Temple through imagination.

Legend has it that once a merchant asked Sant Narhari to prepare a gold waist band for Vithoba. But being an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva, Sant Narhari did not want to go to Pandharpur temple. So he tried to close his eyes and imagine the waist size of Lord Vithoba. But as he tried to imagine the waist size he felt as if he was touching the Shivling and this happened several times. Finally, when Sant Narhari opened his eyes he found Lord Vithoba before him. Sant Narhari Sonar realized that Shiva and Vishnu are the same.

After realization, the pious soul became an ardent devotee of both Vithoba and Lord Shiva. He undertook several activities for the upliftment of the poor. Finally he attained Samadhi and merged with the supreme soul.

His Tithi is observed on the Magh Krishna Paksha Tritiya as per traditional Hindu calendar followed in Maharashtra.
