Sankashti Chaturthi Significance

 

Ganesha showers blessings for all devotees on this day. It is the same day when God Shiva declared his son Ganesha as "pratham pujya" meaning "first god to be worshipped" and superior to all the gods including Vishnu, Lakshmi, Shiva and Parvati. Ganesh is worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and devotees seek his blessings at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel. Lord Ganesha, the Pratham pujya god who is regarded as the supreme lord of prosperity, intelligence and fortune, symbolizes the remover of all obstacles. He is known by the names Vighnaharta (विघ्नहर्ता), Vighnavinashaka (विघ्नविनाशक) and Vigneshwara (विघ्नेश्वर)..Devotees pray to Lord Ganesha for all of their family members for health and prosperity. As Lord Ganesha is also known as ‘Vighnaharta’, meaning one who removes all the obstacles. Worshipping him can help in removing of all the hurdles of life. Thus it is believed that by observing Sankashti Chaturthi fast - one can get rid of all obstacles. "Sankashti" means ‘deliverance during difficult times’ and "Chaturthi" means ‘the fourth day or tithi dedicated to Lord Ganesha’. The significance of Sankashti Chaturthi vrat is mentioned in the ‘Bhavishaya Purana’ and ‘Narasimha Purana’ and was told by Lord Krishna to Yudhishtira, the eldest of all Pandavas.
