Lord Ganesha is brought into one’s house by many Hindus during Ganesh Chathurthi and kept for ten days. He is then immersed in water of ponds, rivers or sea on the Visarjana Day. On the state of Maharashtra these ten days are celebrated with maximum vigour in the country. Ganesha is widely known as the remover of obstacles.
Before undertaking any activity, Hindus never fail to first pray to Ganesha to ensure the removal of any obstacles and to make an auspicious beginning. In fact he is artistically the most widely represented of all Hindu Gods. He is the son of Lord Shiva and Parvati and has an elephant head. Ganesha is also known as Ekdanta as one of his tusks is broken off.
Ganesha is also known as Lambodara meaning having a pot belly or hanging belly. Ganesha’s Vehicle is a small rat called as Musaka in Sanskrit. It is also interpreted as the ability of Ganesha to be everywhere just as the mouse can go even to the most secret places. While Ganesha is known as both creator and remover of obstacles and he is also respected and worshipped as the Lord of letters and learning.
Thus one of his names is Buddhipriya meaning fond of intelligence. The concept of Buddhi, Siddhi and Riddhi means intellect, spiritual power and prosperity. Ganesha is the most popular of many Indian Gods and the one most liked by all age groups especially the children.
Among all 12 Months, God resides in the month of Margazhi According to message from sources Margazhi month is considered auspicious because in Bhagavat Gita, Lord Krishna says that he will be as the ‘Margazhi’ in that month. Among the 12 Tamil months, God resides in this month and so Hindus dedicate the whole Margazhi month of 30 days only to God’s worship and avoids keeping marriages and other functions in their home.
