About Ganesh Chaturthi

The whole universe glorifies Lord Ganesha as the Lord of knowledge and Remover of Obstacles. As per Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha is regarded as "VignaHarta" (the one who discharges obstacles) and "Buddhi-Pradayaka" (the one who gives knowledge). Ganesh Chaturthi is a celebration that is very important for apprentices, as they worship Lord Ganesha to illustrate their principles.

Ganesh Chaturthi is observed in Bhadra (usually comes between August month and September month) according to the Hindu calendar. This festival is observed by Hindus with big enthusiasm. The devotees bring figures of Lord Ganesha to their home and pray to him by doing his aartis two times in a day and also by advising desserts. The period of this celebration varies from 1 day to 10 or 11 days, but it also depends on the place and their custom. On the last day of the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi, the Lord Ganesha's idols are taken out in a colorful and melodious ceremony and immersed traditionally in water bodies such as the sea, or a river.

Ganesh Shubh Pujan

Ganesh Shubh Pujan happens on the first day after one has brought Ganesha idol at home or in the society. When the Ganesha idol is bought home, his head is covered with a cloth and is only taken off after the Pujan is done. On the day of the festival, the devotees decorate the area where you are going to place Lord Ganesha. Locate the Ganesha idol on a small wood table while chorusing the mantra 'Om Ganeshaya Namaha'. Sustain the elements and offerings in front of the Ganesha idol. One should start the Shubh pujan by chanting Ganesha mantras for 108 times.
