Ganesh Visarjan, also known as Anant Chaturdashi, marks its conclusion. After a lengthy street parade in Visarjan, worshipers submerge Lord Ganesh statues in a body of water.

Story of Lord Ganesha:

According to legend, Lord Ganesha’s mother, Goddess Parvati, created an idol of a boy out of turmeric powder and gave it life without her husband, Lord Shiva, knowing. While she took a bath, Parvati assigned her young child to watch over her. Indignant by the youngster’s arrogance in claiming to be Parvati’s son. He summoned his band of demons, the bhutaganas, who engaged the boy in a fierce battle. However, the child easily defeated such formidable foes, forcing Vishnu to step in and take the form of Maya. The kid was mesmerized by her beauty, and when he became disoriented, Shiva took advantage of the chance to cut off his head.

Parvati fled from her bath in response to the disturbance and confronted Shiva about the hasty manner in which their son had been killed. Shiva was sorry and asked that a new head be obtained for the boy. Since an elephant was the first animal that could be located, Ganesha received the new elephant head and quickly earned popularity among Hindu deities.

Ganesha was endowed with a special power, and it is believed he is the first to be called upon before starting any project or business because he is the lord of beginnings and the remover of impediments.

Thus, Ganesh is regarded as a guardian/saviour since he is revered for his ability to remove barriers.

On Ganesha Day, Know the correct Vastu placement of Lord Ganesha in Your Home:

Worshiping Lord Ganesha is highly valued in Indian tradition, especially before any important occasion. Nevertheless, a lot of homeowners frequently disregard the custom of putting the idol of Lord Ganesha in the house, and more importantly, in the appropriate location. A perfectly positioned, appropriate idol draws riches, health, and the removal of all hindrances.

You would undoubtedly see a great change in lives if you brought Ganesha inside your house, so use these Vastu suggestions for idol placement to your advantage.

  • Vastu experts advise putting the idol of Lord Ganesha in the west, north-east, or north direction.
  • Never allow the idol to face south since it can inflict more damage than good. It must never be placed next to a restroom, a toilet, or up against a wall that is part of it. A Drishti Ganesh at your front door keeps all ill spirits away from your house.
  • Lord Ganesha is seen as auspicious, but you still need to be quite careful where you install it. Your home has some spaces that need to be avoided, like the space under a stairway, garages, storage areas, laundry rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms.
  • While it’s simple to get carried away by an idol’s immediate attractiveness, Vastu experts advise paying close attention to the trunk’s location. The direction of the trunk in relation to Lord Ganesh represents prosperity and happiness. It is said that Lord Ganesha will be challenging to please when his trunk is pointing in his direction.
  • Several Vastu authorities advise orienting a white Ganesha idol in the proper direction. It is believed that a white idol welcomes harmony, serenity, and wealth. If you desire success and self-improvement, you may also bring home a vermilion Ganesha idol.
