What Is The Significance Of Happy Ganesh Chaturthi?
Ganesh Chaturthi is also known as Vinayak Chaturthi when ardent devotees of Lord Ganesha bring Idols of the lord and worship the deity by offering food, modaks, Dhruva ghas, and performing aarti. Temples are also adorned with grandeies and offer prayers and ladoos as it is a favorite dish of Ganesha.
The festival marks the birthday of The god of wisdom and prosperity, which falls in the Bhadrapada month of the Hindu-calendar falls in August-September. According to the Indian Mythology, Goddess Parvati has created baby lord Ganesha using sandalwood paste and asked him to guard while she was taking a bath.
When Lord Shiva tried to enter, he was stopped at the entrance by Lord Ganesha. He refused to enter and meet Parvati. This made Lord Shiva very angry and he severed his head. This incident made Parvati very heartbroken. Lord Shiva after seeing her wife’s grief promised her to bring him back. However, they could only find a baby elephant’s head to replace. Devotees pray to Lord Ganesha so that he could remove obstacles from everyone’s life and give them the wisdom to excel.
Ganesh Chaturthi Puja Vidhi
According to the Panchang, the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi starts from the Chaturthi Tithi of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month. Which ends with the immersion of Ganpati Bappa on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. According to the calendar, Ganesh Chaturthi falls on 10th September and Annat Chaturdashi falls on 19th September.
During this, people keep a fast and worship the eight forms of Lord Ganesha. It is believed that on Ganesh Chaturthi, the Siddhi Vinayak form of God is worshiped because it is more auspicious.
During Ganeshotsav, various types of materials are needed to worship Lord Shri Ganesha methodically. Without these worship materials, the worship of Ganpati Bappa will remain incomplete.

Ganesh Chaturthi Vrat Katha
Once Mahadevji along with Parvati went to the banks of Narmada. There Parvatiji expressed her desire to play chapped with Mahadevji at a beautiful place. Then Shiva said- Who will be the witness of our defeat and victory? Parvati immediately made an effigy by collecting straws from the grass there and after consecrating life in it said to him – son! We want to play quadruped, but there is no one to witness defeat or victory here. Therefore, at the end of the game, you are witness to our defeat and victory and tell who among us won, who lost?
The game started. Parvatiji won all three times by luck. When in the end the decision of victory or defeat was made by the boy, he declared Mahadevji victorious. As a result, Parvati got angry and cursed him to be lame on one leg and suffer sorrow by lying in the mud there.
The boy humbly said – Mother! It happened because of my ignorance. I didn’t do it out of any cynicism or malice. Forgive me and tell me the remedy to get rid of the curse.
Then Mamta’s mother felt pity for him and she said – here the snake-girls will come to worship Ganesha. By his teachings, you will attain me by fasting Ganesha. Saying this she went to Mount Kailash.
After a year, snake-girls came there in Shravan to worship Ganesha. The snake-girls fasted Ganesha and told the method of fasting to that child too. Thereafter the child observed Lord Ganesha’s fast for 12 days. Then Ganeshji appeared to him and said – I am happy with your fast. Ask for the desired boon.
Ask for the desired boon. The boy said – God! Give so much strength to my feet that I can reach my parents on Mount Kailash and they will be pleased with me.
Ganeshji disappeared by saying ‘Tathastu’. The child reached the feet of Lord Shiva. Shivaji asked him about the means of reaching there.
Then the child narrated the whole story to Shiva. On the other hand, Parvati became displeased with Shiva from that day as well. After that Lord Shankar also fasted for 21 days like a child, due to which the desire to meet Mahadevji awakened in Parvati’s mind.
They soon reached Mount Kailash. Upon reaching there Parvati asked Shiva – Lord! What is the remedy that you have taken, as a result of which I have come running to you? Shivji told him the history of ‘Ganesh Vrat’.
Then Parvati, with the desire to meet her son Kartikeya, worshiped Ganesha with Durva, flowers, and laddus for 21 days. On the 21st day, Kartikeya himself met Parvati. He too fasted after hearing the significance of this fast from the mouth of his mother.
