Ganesh_Chaturthi

Lord Ganesha is worshiped first among all the Gods. Lord Ganesh is known as the Vighanharta. Lord Ganesh is the God of wisdom. Worshiping him fulfils the desire and develops the wisdom of a person. He likes Ladoos the most in the offerings. People keeping this fast should avoid seeing the Moon while the fast is in effect.

How to Observe Ganesh Chaturthi Fast

Chaturthi is extremely dear to Lord Ganesha. People observing this fast should take bath and complete their daily work early in the morning. After this, the resolution for fast is taken. For taking resolution, water and grass is taken in hand and the mantra "मम सर्वकर्मसिद्धये सिद्धिविनायक पूजनमहं करिष्ये | Mam Sarvakarmsiddhaye Siddhivinayak Pujanmaham Karishye" is chanted.

After this, an idol of Gold, copper or mud can be used for worshipping. Water is filled in an urn. A blank and clean piece of cloth is tied at the mouth of the urn and the statue is placed over it. Then, vermilion is put on the idol and worshiped with Shodashopachara(16 step of worshiping).

After the Puja, Aarti is sung.
