The elephant headed god is worshiped at the beginning of seasons and rituals for this reason. And there is one day in every month of the year when this worship is said to be at its peak. Known as Sankashti Chaturthi or Sakat Chauth, this day is even more auspicious, especially if it falls on a Tuesday or Friday.
Celebrated across India, Sankashti Chaturthi is observed on the fourth day, or Chaturthi, of every month in the Hindu calendar. The day is also linked with the Krishna Paksha, or the waning phase of the moon. While people in many states of India celebrate this day, especially in Maharashtra, it is known by a number of different names. Known as Sankat Hara Chaturthi in Tamil Nadu, the day is also celebrated as Angaraki Chaturthi when it falls on a Tuesday.
The Sanskrit word "Sankashti" means
deliverance from troubled or difficult times, so worshiping Lord Ganesha on
this day means you'll be blessed with peace and prosperity in the coming times.
Devotees usually keep a fast to be free of obstacles on this day.
