Ganadhipa Sankashti Ganesh Chaturthi 2024 Date 

Sri Ganesha is honored on Chaturthi Tithi (the fourth day of the fortnight). Sri Ganesha is Pratham Pujya, which means the first to receive people's prayers. As a result, all auspicious occasions begin with initial offerings and prayers to him. He is also known as Vighnaharta (obstacle remover). As a result, followers seek his blessings and desire for a peaceful existence.

The Vinayaka Chaturthi Vrat and the Sankashti Chaturthi Vrat are the two types of fast's devoted to Sri Ganesha. Vinayaka Chaturthi is held during Chaturthi Shukla Paksha (the waxing phase of the Moon), whilst the latter is observed during Krishna Paksha (the waning phase of the Moon). The Sankashti Vrat is the most well-known of them. Sankashti means deliverance, and it alludes to freedom from difficulties in this context.

Each Sankashti Chaturthi day has its own name and spiritual significance. Ganadhipa Sankashti Chaturthi, for example, is the Sankashti of the Kartik month (according to the Amavasyant calendar) or the Margashirsha month (according to the Purnimant calendar). On this day, which normally falls in November, devotees worship the Maha Ganapati form of Lord Ganesha and the Shiva Peetha.

Importance of Ganadhipa Sankashti Chaturthi - Why do devotees observe this vrat?

Chaturthi has its unique significance in Hinduism since it is dedicated to Lord Ganesha devotion. Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, is also known as Pratham Pujya. He is the most revered of all gods. Lord Ganpati and Goddess Laxmi are always honored before any pooja, yajna, hawan, or other religious practice. Devotees revere Shiva Peetha and Lord Ganpati's Maha Ganapati avatar on the auspicious day of Sankashti Chaturthi. 

Fasting on this day every month is thought to bring good fortune, happiness, and prosperity to followers, as well as Lord Ganesha's protection from all obstacles in life. Lord Ganesha is believed to remove impediments from the lives of his followers as the one who removes troubles from life. No auspicious act is accomplished until Ganpati Ji is worshiped; this includes arranging weddings and engagements as well as performing puja rites. 

This practice is related with various stories. Krishna Chaturthi, who having undertaken great penance, pleased Sri Ganesha. So, at the moment of Chandrodaya (Moonrise), the Lord appeared before Krishna Chaturthi to grant her request.
Krishna Chaturthi desired a blessing that would offer her eternal relationship with Sri Ganesha. She also asked for a blessing to assist followers get rid of all their problems by fasting on Krishna Chaturthi. Thus, God Ganesha granted all of her desires, and the custom of fasting on the Chaturthi Tithi started.

Ganadhipa Sankashti Chaturthi Rituals 

Devotees are instructed to get up early, take a holy bath, and dress cleanly. Install a Lord Ganesha statue and execute a panchamrit (milk, curd, sugar, honey, and ghee) purifying ceremony. Light a light, apply kumkum on the forehead, and serve Lord Ganesha sweets (laddoos and modaks) and yellow vermilion. Don't forget to include durva grass, the Lord's favorite herb, with your offering. To show respect for the god, recite the Bindayak Katha (Lord Ganesh Katha) and perform an aarti ritual. Visit the temple, where devotees can present Lord Ganesha laddoos and modaks.
