About Ganesh chaturthi
Ganesha-Chaturthi (birthday of Ganesha) is one of the biggest holidays in India, because it is dedicated to the most merciful Deity who removes obstacles on the path of development – Ganesha.
The festival is celebrated for 10 days and starts on the fourth (Shukla chaturthi) tithis of the month of Bhadrapada (August-September) and continues until the fourteenth lunar day (Anant chaturdashi).
There is a custom: on this day, after pujas and offerings (fruits, milk and specially baked rice balls), clay images of Ganesha are immersed in water. Thus, Ganesha goes to his abode, to Kailash, and by leaving he takes away all the misfortunes of his devotees, as well as future obstacles.
There is a legend that when Ganesha ate sweet balls and walked along the road, he accidentally stumbled, and all the balls fell out of his mouth. The moon, seeing this, laughed at Ganesha. After which he cursed her and said that she would not always be complete, but would appear and disappear, and would not always be so attractive. And one who looks at the moon on a day corresponding to Ganesha-chaturthi will not be successful in sadhana. Therefore, on this day it is undesirable to look at the moon if you want to achieve results in practice.
On the day of Ganesha-Chaturthi, it is customary to remember stories related to Ganesha. Sadhana dedicated to Ganapati is especially effective on this day.
