Milk Miracle in the Caribbean

TRINIDAD, September 22, 2010: Reports streaming in indicate that Ganesh Murtis from all quarters of Trinidad were accepting milk. Mandirs, as well as Hindus from their homes have reported live on Radio Jaagriti that Ganesh Murtis have been “drinking milk” when offered on this final day of the Ganesh Utsav.

The “miracle”, as it was called by believers, was first noted at midday on Tuesday at the Om Shanti Mandir, Cunjal Road, Princes Town, where devotees have been observing the holy period of Ganesh Utsav. Other mandirs began observing the “phenomenon” yesterday.

A steady stream of devotees stood in line yesterday to make offerings to the elephant-headed God, remover of obstacles in the Hindu faith.

Chief executive officer of Radio Jaagriti Devant Maharaj said yesterday the Hindu milk miracle was a phenomenon considered by Hindus as a miracle. “It first occurred on September 21, 1995, all over the globe, and again, on August 20-21 in 2006, in almost exactly the same fashion,” he said.

He said the first report locally came in from the local Om Shanti mandir and since then, mandir groups from all over the world have been reporting similar experiences of the murtis drinking milk. “At Radio Jaagriti, devotees began standing in line to offer milk, fruits and flowers to a Ganesh murti kept at the radio station,” he said. He said Hindus had seen the hand of divinity in the miracle. “God is among us,” he said.
