Sankashti Chaturthi 2022 Dates

Sankashti Chaturthi 2022 Dates

Sankashti Chaturthi or Sankatahara Chaturthi is the day dedicated to Lord Ganesha. Sankashti Chaturthi falls on every 4th day after Pournami full moon (Krishna Paksha) of Hindu lunar calendar month. Each Hindu calendar month has two Chaturthi Tithis. Chaturthi tithi after Purnima or full moon during Krishna Paksha is known as Sankashti Chaturthi and the one after Amavasya or new moon during Shukla Paksha is known as Vinayaka Chaturthi. “Sankashti” word is originated from Sanskrit language which means “liberation during the difficult times”. 

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.
