Lord Vinayaka, Ganeshji, Ganpatiji, Vinayakar is the darling of the masses.
Ganesh Chaturthi brings people of all religion, caste and creed together.
The Ganesh Chaturthi 2013 Puja Muhurut to bring the Vigraha / Idol
home is during the Shubh, Labh or Amrit Choghadiya. If you intend to bring
Ganpati ji one day before, i.e. on the 8th September 2013, the
Labh time is between 09:32:16 and 11:04:11 and the Amrit time is
11:04:11 and 12:36:06. Ganpati ji can also be brought home (Avahana or
Welcome) during the Shubh time which is between 14:08:01 and 15:39.55.
Please note these Timings are as per panchang of Mumbai, India.
The Ganesh Staphna (installation of the Idol) on Ganesh Chaturthi
day, i.e. on 9th September 2013 can be done Amrit between 06:28:37 and
08:00:24 or Shubh Time i.e. between 09:32:11 and 11:03:58. Ganesh
Pooja is preferred during Madhyanhana in Ganesh Chaturthi as it is believed
that Lord Ganesh was born during Madhyahana Kaal. The Muhurut time specified
above is the best Muhurut to perform the Ganesh Puja and to perform any
Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great devotion all over India. People
bring home murtis of Lord Ganesha and celebrate the festival by
worshiping the Lord in a special way for a day and a half, 5 days, 7 days or
11 days depending on the family tradition and commitment of each individual.
On the last day of worship the idol is taken out in a colourful and musical
procession to be immersed traditionally at a beach.
This is one of the most popular festivals in the Country. There are several
reasons for this. Ganpati is after all a popular God. His blessings are
invoked at most religious ceremonies as He is the one who can remove all
obstacles to success. He is the giver of fortune and can help to avoid
Ganpati, the god of wisdom and the benevolent deity of the dynasty of Peshwas
who ruled Maharashtra inculcating a special culture in the state. Ganpati is
the herald of auspicious beginnings and is the beloved deity of all.
Wish you a Happy and a Blessed Ganesh Chaturthi 2013!
Ganpati Bappa Morya!!
