What Day is Ganesh Chaturthi?


Ganesh Chaturthi falls on the fourth day after the new moon in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada (August - September).

What's the purpose of celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi?


This festival is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. One of Ganesha's 108 names, Vighnaharta, made an earthly appearance to help followers overcome their challenges. In Hinduism, he is summoned before every puja and prayer. He rules over beginnings.

Ganesh Chaturthi in mythology


In Hindu mythology the story of lord Ganesh's birth took place while lord Shiva was at war and his wife, Parvati, wanted to take a bath. She didn't have anyone to watch over her house's door, so she made Ganesha out of the sandalwood she used for her bath and gave him life. Then she put him in charge of guarding her door and told him to not let anyone in. Lord Shiva came back from the battle in the meantime.

Shiva tried to get into Parvati's room, but Ganesh stopped him. Shiva was so angry at Ganesh's arrogance that he took his trident (called Trisula) and slashed off Ganesha's head. When Parvati came out, she saw that Ganesha's head was cut off, and she got very angry. She turned herself into the goddess Kali and wanted to destroy Heaven, Earth, and the underground earth.

The other Gods begged Shiva to stop Parvati from getting angry. Shiva sent out his Ganas to take the head of the first living thing to the north. An elephant was the first thing they saw. So, they brought the elephant's head, and Shiva put it on the trunk of Parvati's son, gave him life, and Ganesh was born. Parvati was so happy that she ran to hug her son, the boy with the head of an elephant that Shiva had given the name Ganesha, the master of Ganas.
Ganesh Chaturthi importance

Ganesha is a well-known god in the modern day, nevertheless. Ganesha is constantly and gradually transcending all national and religious barriers to find a place in many living rooms all around the world.

Between man and god, there is an unseen barrier that is broken by Ganesha. He can play with kids, talk to teens about their difficulties, and help seniors with their philosophical inquiries. Hindu mythology is complete with tales about Ganesha. Ganesha gives people the courage to conquer challenges. And as a result of this quality, he is known as "Vigneshwara." In all prayers, He is adored first. Any auspicious task must first begin with the recitation of Ganesha's names.

When a devotee approaches Ganesha, their ego vanishes and is changed into a kid. In that unadulterated condition, one would understand that Ganesha's elephant head symbolizes "om," the initial mantra and the primal sound.

The symbolism of Ganesh Chaturthi: The Value of Ganapati

For a Hindu, the Ganapati quickly conjures up the image of the Lord as the elephant-faced deity, who is revered across India regardless of caste, creed, or religion. In addition to Ganapatyas, he is revered by Shaivites, Vaishnavites, Shaktas, and Shauryas. He is revered before beginning any activity since he is known for removing impediments.

'Gana' in Sanskrit means 'to count'. Gana is the word for a group because we count things and put them into groups. Ganpati is the Lord of all groups.

Each body is made up of a combination of seven substances, including bones, flesh, blood, fat, lymph, marrow, and semen, as well as five senses for movement, grasping, speech, reproduction, and excretion, five senses for perception, including sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch, five physiological processes, including respiration, digestion, circulation, excretion, and reversal action, and four mental modifications.  Ganpati is the Supreme Being.

The leader of each group may be different. A president is the leader of a country, just as Indra is the king of heaven, and a person is the crow of all other living things on earth. But Ganpati is the King of Kings, the Master of All, the Lord of All Lords.
Conclusion:

The celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi has the symbolic connotation that Lord Ganesha visits and remains with us. The immersion represents his ascension from the earth after eliminating all of his followers' difficulties and suffering.
