ganesh chaturthi 2022

In India, the festival season has so far started. After great hype for Rakshabandan and Janmashtami, people are again looking toward the Ganesh Chaturthi 2022 celebrations. The event commemorates Lord Ganesh’s birthday as the offspring of Lord Shiva & Goddess Parvati. 

According to mythology, Lord Ganesh was born during the Shukla Paksha of the Bhadrapada month.

This year, Ganesh Chaturthi is on August 31, 2022.

The Meaning And Rituals Of Ganesh Chaturthi 2022

During Ganesh Chaturthi, believers pray to Lord Ganesh for one bright and happy life.

Ganesh Chaturthi symbolizes Ganesh’s rebirth and represents ‘new beginnings.’

It is widely believed that Lord Ganesha was created amid the day of Madhyahna, giving mid-day the much more auspicious moment for Ganesh Puja, commonly known as Shodashopachara Ganapati Puja.

On this day, Lord Ganesh figurines are taken home for Ganesh Sthapana, while people give prayers with bhog for ten days. On Anant Chaturdashi, worshipers submerge Lord Ganesh’s idols into water sources.

Sthapana Vidhi for Ganesh Chaturthi

You can go along the following steps to understand and perform the Vidhi

  • On the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, the holy idol of Ganesha must be put after washing and wearing clean clothing.
  • Cleanse the post using Gangajal and cover it with a fresh red or green cloth.
  • Spread a cloth, place Akshat on it, and then place the Lord Ganesha statue on top.
  • Apply Gangajal to Lord Ganesha’s idol.
  • Dress Lord Ganesha in a Janeu, then create a Kalash by placing Akshat on the left side. Also, on Kalash, draw a swastika sign.
  • Attach coconut as well as mango leaves to Kalash & keep them there.
  • After presenting Ganpati Bappa with Kalash and Durva, present him with Panchmeva and Modak.
  • Present Lord Ganesha with flowers, garlands, roli, and so on. Tilak Ganpati Ji now uses roli. Having done tilak, place a monolithic light in front of Ganesh Ji on the right side.
  • Next, do Lord Ganesha’s aarti.

If you’ve placed an idol of Lord Ganesha in your house, you must treat it as if it were a family member. Offer Bhog to Ganapati three times every day. Modak must be provided to Ganpati Bappa daily. You may also serve Motichoor or gram flour laddus should you desire.

Foods made in honour of Ganesh Chaturthi

Even mythological literature indicates Lord Ganesha’s fondness for delicious cuisine. Lord Ganpati likes Modaks and Ladoos, which is why this celebration is incomplete without these delightful treats. Other sweet delights created and served as bhog to the god include Kharvas, Basundi, Srikhand, Rabri, Kheer,& Halwa.
