Significance of Ganpati Festival
Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great pomp and show in our country. It is a 10-day long festival that is celebrated to commemorate the rebirth day of Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha, the son of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva, is also known as Vighnaharta. He is called by 108 different names. This elephant-headed God has one broken tusk, huge flapping ears, potbelly, and hands holding goad, pasam, and a pot of rice. The mouse is the Vahan of Lord Ganesha.
Whenever there is an auspicious occasion, Lord Ganesha is the first God who is worshipped. Ganpati, the destroyer of obstacles, leads the worshipper to unprecedented success. New ventures and ceremonies are started after taking His blessings- the Lord of good fortune, prosperity, and spiritual knowledge.
