About the event:

Ganapati Bappa Mauriya 🙏

The blessings of Lord Ganesha are invoked at religious ceremonies. Lord Vinayaka is known as the fortune giver and one who can assist to avoid natural calamities.

Ganesh Chathurthi is a 10 day festival and is done as to show respect on the birth day of the god Ganesha. on this special occasion we follow rules (they are not cumpolsory) such as:

  1. Installation of Ganapati statue: A statue of the Elephant God is installed on a pedestal either at home or in a public place with a pranprathishtha puja.
  2. Not looking at the moon: On the first night of the festival, people avoid looking at the moon because it is considered a bad omen.
  3. Prayers: Washing of the statue; puja with the chanting of shlokas and offerings of flowers and sweets; and aarti, i.e. circumlocution of the idol with a plate filled with a lit earthern/metal lamp, kumkum and flowers, is done. Prayer meetings are also conducted at Ganapati temples and public installations every day in the evenings and in some places, in the mornings as well.
  4. Special performances: Some public installations of Lord Ganesh might also have performances with dance, music, and skits.
  5. Making and eating modak: Modak is believed to be Ganapati's favourite sweet. So, these dumplings are made and distributed as prasad during the festival. Other food items such as laddoo, barfi, pedha, and sundal are also distributed during this time.
  6. Visarjan: This is the immersion of the idol in a water body and is conducted on the last day - anywhere between the seventh and eleventh days - of the festival. It is accompanied by a procession of people chanting bhajans and shlokas and songs, with the idol. People seek forgiveness for the mistakes they have done so far and request the god to help them stay on the righteous path. Ganesha is thanked for visiting the home/locality, for being removing obstacles from people's path, and for the auspiciousness he bestows.
