What is Ganesh Chaturthi Fast And why we celebrate it…
Sunday, January 31, 2021
The Ganesh Chaturthi or tilkut Chauth fast is a festival that is observed by Hindus. This festival happens
after a new moon and is observed shortly after the birth of the Hindu deity, Lord Ganesha. Two big
holidays are observed on every Chaturthi. In one lunar Shukla Paksha it is called Kartik Shukla Paksha, in
another Kartik Shukla Paksha it is called Vinayaki Shukla Paksha. Sankashti means someone who can fix
crisis situations. The Lord Ganesha is believed to have the forces that can defeat the crises. It is believed
that as a young woman regresses at the fast of her husband and the longevity and the pleasure of her
son comes to her relief. In this day, the women conduct the Lord Ganesha Puja with the Vidhi Vidhan. In
this occasion, they appreciate the Sesame Laddoos because Lord Ganesha likes laddus.
On this day, women worship Lord Ganesha after washing their faces and bathing throughout the
morning, and explains the tale of Lord Ganesha to their children during the day, and maintains a fast
throughout the day as she recites the story of Ganesha. When the moon is out, open the easy during the
daytime. Around the table at dinnertime, all sorts of things are served.
