HAPPY GANESH CHATURTHI 2022 : BEST WISHES !! श्री गणेश पर्व की आप सभी को बधाई एवं शुभकामनायें !

 Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated every year to mark the birth of Lord Ganesha, the God of beginnings. The festival takes place in the month of Bhadra, according to the Hindu calendar. This year, it shall begin on September 2. Lord Ganesha is supposed to be a symbol of wisdom, luck and good fortune. Lord Ganesha is also addressed as Gajanana, Ganesh, Gajadant among others.

* History:-

Legend has it that Goddess Parvati made Ganesha out of sandalwood paste and put him on guard while she was taking a bath. When Lord Shiva came back, Ganesha would not allow him to pass through. Full of anger, Lord Shiva severed the child’s head. When Goddess Parvati came to know about this, she was heartbroken, after which Shiva promised that he would bring Ganesha back to life. He instructed his followers to search for a child’s head. However, they could only find a baby elephant’s head. And that is how Lord Ganesha came into being after he was re-born with the head of an elephant.


There is a lot of excitement weeks before Ganesh Chaturthi, with people making clay idols of Ganesha and painting them. The festival kicks off with Pranapratishhtha, which comprises chanting of mantras by a priest. This is followed by a 16-step ritual called Shodashopachara Puja. During this puja, offerings which were loved by Ganesha are placed infront of his idol. Some of these are modak, shrikhand, payasam, coconut rice and motichoor laddoo. Devotees throng to the temples to pay their respects to Lord Ganesha, where pujas take places and bhajans are sung. Localities put up pandals in which huge statues of Lord Ganesha are put up.


Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular and famous Indian festival. It is celebrated in schools and colleges, shops and offices. Hindus also observe it at home and perform this Puja with great devotion. Of course, Lord Ganesha is invoked in the beginning of every Puja as Gananayak and Vighna-nashak. But, the puja during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival is observed once in the year with great interest and enthusiasm.
