All About Ganesh Chaturthi!!

All About Ganesh Chaturthi!!

No to Meat, Egg, and Alcohol for 10 days. Hindus are going to celebrate the festival in Bhadrapa Masam every year on the day of Shukla chathurdhi. This energy song starts with sounds of bells and high pitches there, this song is for the traditional festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. It begins on the fourth day (chaturthi) of the month of Bhadrapada (August-September), the sixth month of the Hindu calendar.

"For years, we received requests from devotees overseas who celebrate the festival and would like to have our eco-friendly idols sent to them", Lolita Gupta, who leads the Ganesh campaign for eCoexist, told TOI.

The mouse or a shrew is often seen as the "vahana" or vehicle of choice for the happy-go-lucky god who is considered the destroyer of obstacles.

In Goa, the common tendency is that the families celebrate the festival in their ancestral homes where all members come together to partake in the celebration and this, in a way, also helps reduce burden of expenses.

If you take home a stone and worship it in full faith, over a course of time you are bound to see the image of Ganesh. For Ganesh Chaturthi is here, and it is one of the most popular festivals celebrated in India, thanks to the awesome popularity of the elephant-headed deity.

Television actor Rithvik Dhanjani who has been welcoming Ganpati Bappa ever since he moved to Mumbai made a decision to bring a twist to the celebrations and crafted the idol of Lord Ganesha himself. It is believed that lord Ganesha is fond of Modaks which is prepared by her mother. There they are immersed, a ritual symbolizing Ganesha's homeward journey to Mount Kailas-the abode of his parents, Shiva and Parvati.

Ganapathi Visarajan is the immersion of Ganesha idols in the water or river.

Wishing all our readers a very Happy Ganesh Chathurthi! Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone.

May good health, peace, love & prosperity be bestowed on all of us.
