GANESH CHATHURTHI :A SYMBOLIC FEELING
Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival that commemorates the birth of Lord Ganesha. It falls on the fourth day of the waxing of the moon in the Bhadrapada month (August or September). This is an important Hindu festival. If one is present in Maharashtra or Goa during the Ganesh Chaturthi he/she will be spellbound by the spectacular celebration and the lights, colors, sound, and happiness all around.
Significance Of Ganesh Chaturthi
Sri Sri Ravishankar has explained the significance of Ganesh Chaturthi nicely. He says after the idol of Ganapati is made with clay, a devotee prays to Lord Ganesha and begs him to move out from his heart and enter into the idol so that he can serve him and play with him. A devotee would like to offer all the good things that were bestowed upon him by Lord Ganesha. So, he lights a diya that signifies the sun or the ray of life that is enjoyed by the devotee. By the grace of Lord Ganesha, there is no obstacle for the devotee to find food. Hence, he, too, offers the lord His favorite foods like the modakas, along with water. In this way, a devotee in his own small ways tries to return the favors done by the Lord to him. After the puja finishes, the devotee begs the Lord Ganesha to return again to his heart so that he remains pure and protected.
