  1. Ganesh Chathurthi The Story Behind Ganesh Chathurthi Scroll Down To Know More

  2. History and legend GANESH CHATURTHI FESTIVAL ORIGINATED DURING THE REIGN OF THE MARATHAS. IT WAS CHATRAPATI SHIVAJI WHO STARTED THE FESTIVAL AS A WAY OF BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND MAKING THEM MORE PATRIOTIC. THERE IS A FASCINATING LEGEND ASSOCIATED WITH THE BIRTH OF GANESHA, WHO WAS THE SON OF LORD SHIVA AND GODDESS PARVATI. ACCORDING TO IT, IT WAS GODDESS PARVATI WHO CREATED GANESHA. ONE DAY, SHE WANTED TO HAVE A BATH BUT AS LORD SHIVA HAD GONE OUT, SHE USED SOME TURMERIC PASTE TO CREATE GANESHA WHO SHE INSTRUCTED TO KEEP WATCH OUTSIDE HER ROOM UNTIL SHE FINISHED HER BATH. WHILE SHE WAS BATHING, LORD SHIVA ARRIVED BUT GANESHA DID NOT ALLOW HIM TO ENTER. THIS ENRAGED LORD SHIVA WHO BEHEADED GANESHA. WHEN PARVATI EMERGED FROM HER BATH AND REALIZED WHAT HAPPENED, SHE ASSUMED THE FORM OF GODDESS KALI AND THREATENED THAT SHE WOULD DESTROY THE WORLD. EVERYONE WAS WORRIED AND THEY MET LORD SHIVA TO FIND A SOLUTION AND CALM THE GODDESS’ RAGE. SHIVA ORDERED HIS FOLLOWERS TO GO AND FIND A CHILD. THE FIRST CHILD THEY SAW WAS THAT OF AN ELEPHANT AND SO THEY CUT ITS HEAD AND TOOK IT TO LORD SHIVA. LORD SHIVA AT ONCE PLACED THE HEAD ON GANESHA'S BODY AND RESTORED IT TO LIFE AGAIN. THE GODDESS’ RAGE SUBSIDED AND GODDESS PARVATI BECAME HAPPY AGAIN. ALL THE GODS GAVE THEIR BLESSINGS TO GANESHA. SINCE THEN, THE DAY IS CELEBRATED AS GANESHA CHATURTHI. ASTROVED

  3. Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrations Ganesh Chaturthi preparations begin almost a month before the festival. The celebrations continue for around ten days. A clay idol of Lord Ganesha is installed in homes on the first day. People decorate their homes with flowers and make it a point to visit temples. Poojas will be performed and bhajans, sung. Entire families often come together to celebrate the festival. In many localities pandals will be erected  and large idols of Lord Ganesha will be installed. The day the festival ends, the idols of Lord Ganesha will be taken in procession on the streets. People display their enthusiasm and joy by singing and dancing on the streets during the procession. Finally, the idol is immersed in water bodies like the river or sea. This is called Ganesh Visarjan. Ganesh Chathurthi Is one of the Important Festival In India

  4. Reason behind Ganesh Visarjan Ganesh Visarjan  is done to represent the birth cycle of Lord Ganesha. Since he was made from clay/earth, his symbolic statue is also made of it. The idol is immersed in water to enable Ganesha to return to his home after ‘staying’ at the devotees’ home or temple where the festival rituals are performed. The reason why people don’t keep the statue for longer is that the power that pervades the statue after worshipping it for 10 days of worship is all we can bear. As devotees feel that discarding or breaking the idol would not be respectful, the statue is immersed in the water. This makes it break down into the clay from which it was made. Some statues are prepared as such that its constituent materials actually benefit the ecosystem they enter. Earlier, the Ganesha idols were made of non- biodegradable materials which harmed the environment. Also, the use of poisonous substances in the paints polluted the water bodies and posed a threat to humans and the organisms living in the water bodies. With increasing awareness of the cost to the environment and its negative impact, people have started using bio-degradable materials for making the idols. Thus the concept of an eco-friendly Ganesha Chaturthi celebration is the trend nowadays.

  5. FOR THE POOJA, A CLAY IDOL OF LORD GANESHA IS INSTALLED IN THE DEVOTEE’S HOME. MANY DISHES ARE COOKED FOR OFFERING (BHOG). THE IDOL IS BATHED IN PURE WATER AND THEN FLOWERS ARE USED TO DECORATE IT. A LAMP IS LIT AND THEN THE AARTI BEGINS. BHAJANS ARE SUNG AND MANTRAS CHANTED. PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT CHANTING THE MANTRAS WITH FULL DEVOTION BRINGS LIFE TO THE IDOL. THEY ALSO BELIEVE THAT DURING THIS TIME, GANESHA VISITS THEIR HOME, BRINGING GOOD FORTUNE AND PROSPERITY. HENCE, THE DAY IS REGARDED AS VERY AUSPICIOUS. Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja
