GANESHA

LETS GIVE A HEARTY WELCOME THIS YEAR 2 GANESHA & WISH HIM A VERY HAPPY BDAY ...........

Ganesh Chaturthi is the birthday of Lord Ganesh, the son of Shiva & Parvati. 
It is a Hindu festival which will bring joy, love and happiness in homes.
 In this festival Ganesha idols is immersed in water, usually in lakes or ponds after a large procession. 

All join in this final procession shouting "Ganapati Bappa Morya, Pudhachya Varshi Laukar ya" (O lord Ganesha, come again early next year) and "Ganesh Maha Raj ki, Jai" (lord Ganesha, victory is yours).


"Om Sri Gam Ganapathaye Namaha"

This is the Lord Ganesha’s mantra.

According to the Vaidic literature, Ganesha is the eldest son of Lord Shiva and 

Goddess Parvathi and he is the head of Pramadhaganas, hence Ganapathi. His 

brother is Kumaraswamy.

Hindus worship Lord Ganesha with several other names like Vinayaka, Vighneswara, 

Gajanana and Ganapathi.

Lord Ganapathi is said to be the form of Omkara. Om, which is written in Devanagari 

(script) is also considered as the pranava. In Om, the upper arc is said to be the head 

or the face of Gajanana. The Lower arc is his belly. The twisted arc, which is on the 

right side of Om is the trunk. Thus Omkara represents the complete physical form of 

Lord Ganesha.

Similarly, yet another divine symbol, the Swastika is also worshipped as another form 

of Lord Ganesha. According to the Indian culture, both these symbols have divine 

values.

Every year, the fourth day after the no-moon day (Amaavasya) in the month of 

Bhadrapada (September according to the English calendar) is celebrated as the 

birthday of Lord Ganesha. This day is known as Vinayaka Chaturdhi or Vinayaka 

Chavithi.

On this day, Lord Ganesha was born in Hasthami Nakshatra and Kanya Raasi. The 

Lord of Kanaya Raasi is Budha (Mercury). Green coloured jewel or Emerald represents 

Mercury. Owing to this, we worship Lord Ganesha with grass, which is of green in 

colour.

As Ganesha was born in the zodiac Mercury, he is intelligent like Budha. Similarly, 

who ever prays him will also attain the intelligence. The Raasi in which Ganesha was 

born (Hasthami) has the shape of an elephant trunk and rises before dawn on the day 

of Vinayaka Chavithi.

In the zodiac, Kanya Raasi is in the sixth position. This place indicates the debts and 

diseases. Owing to this, by worshiping the Lord, the devotees will get rid of the 

problems related to debt and ill health.

Ganesha is also considered to be the Lord of agriculture. Bhadrapada, the month in 

which Ganesha was born, falls in rainy season. Being the Lord of agriculture, even the 

body parts of Ganesha have relevance to various agricultural implements. His trunk 

resembles the plough. Ears are compared to dust pans. His belly is compared to 

granary. His vehicle, the rat, indicates the abundant availability of grain. The goad he 

holds is used for driving the bullock carts, which carry the grain to the granary.A fruit 

in the other hand is indication of bountiful yield. All these indicate that Lord Ganesha 

symbolises prosperity.
