The word "Sankashti" comes from Sanskrit word and implies "freedom from difficult times". The Sankashti of every month has a specific name. As the name suggests, Maha Sankata Hara Chaturthi means liberation from the biggest of obstacles/hurdles. Heramba Sankashti Chaturthi or Maha Sankata Hara Chaturthi is an auspicious day observed on the "Chaturthi" (Fourth Day) of the Krishna Paksha (the waning phase of the moon) of the Hindu month of 'Shravana' as per the Amavasyant calendar and is celebrated on the 'Krishna Paksha Chaturthi' of the 'Bhadrapada' month in the Purnimant calendar. It falls in the month of August-September as per the Gregorian calendar. 

Heramba Sankashti Chaturthi Significance

Lord Ganesh devotees keep a partial or day-long fast on this day. The main puja is done in the evening after the moon is visible. The idol or picture of Lord Ganesha is worshipped with Durva grass, fresh flowers, and incense sticks. Lamps are lit, and devotees read the "vrat katha" specific to the month. The one who observes a vrat on this day with sincere devotion and unshakable faith in Lord Ganesha who is also known as Vighnaharta gets blessed by him. The Vrat rituals for this day end with the sighting of the moon. Thus, Moonrise timing is of great relevance. The Chandra Dev (Moon) is worshipped, and Arghya is performed (water offering ritual). Thus, after taking the blessings of Lord Ganesha along with Chandra Dev, Sankashti fast is concluded.

As it's believed that Lord Ganesha loves Modak, so on the day of Sankashti Chaturthi, Modaks are made and offered to the Lord as it's one of the favourite eatables of Lord Ganesha. Heramba Ganpati is one of the 32 forms of Ganesha as stated in Hindu sacred texts. It is believed that worshipping Heramba Maha Ganpati is ideal for those who require confidence for facing problems and hardships in life.
