Wish you a happy vinayaka or ganesh chaturthi
Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular Hindu festivals. This is the birthday of Lord Ganesha. It is the day most sacred to Lord Ganesha and falls on the 4th day of the bright fortnight of ‘Bhadrapada‘ (August – September).
Lord Ganesha is the elephant–headed God. He is worshipped first in any prayers. His names are repeated first before any auspicious work is begun and also before any kind of worship is begun. He is the Lord of power and wisdom. He is the eldest son of Lord Shiva and the elder brother of “Skanda” or Kartikeya. He is the energy of Lord Shiva and so He is called the son of Shankar and Uma Devi (Goddess Parvati). By worshipping Lord Ganesha mothers hope to earn for their sons the sterling virtues of Ganesha.
Ganesha Chaturthi is celebrated throughout India, as well as by the devoted Hindus all across of the world.
