When people first saw the saint he had worn just a shirt, had a dry gourd as his pitcher, a clay pipe for his smoke and nothing else. He had an aura around him. Eyes were focused on his nose. He had the radiance of morning glow.

Kirtan, prayers, satsang and charity activities are held on the day.

Gajanan Maharaj Punyatithi is annually observed on Bhadrapad shukla paksha panchami tithi or the fifth day during the waning phase of moon in Bhadrapad month as per traditional Hindu lunar calendar followed in Maharashtra.
