About Ganesh Chaturthi

Hanumanji Poojan

The fourth day of the bright half of Bhadrapada is famous as Siddhi Vinayak Chaturthi. On this day, the worship and prayer shall be offered to Lord Ganapati – the destroyer God of troubles. An earthen idol of Lord Ganapati shall be installed and worshipped with Sindur, sacred grass, and sweet - balls.

This worship and Poojan does not attract the fault of worshipping other God, as Ganapatiji is one of the incarnations of Lord Shri Krishna. Bhavishyottar Puran prescribes this day for worship and veneration of Lord Ganapati : 'An earthen or Gold-idol of Lord Ganapati shall be worshipped by wise people on the fourth day of the bright half of Bhadrapada month. The idol shall be given a bath of oil of white sesame seeds in the morning and in noon time, within personal capacity. Ganapatiji shall be worshipped with sacred grass and sweet-balls.
