Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2017 everyone!

The day to honor Lord Ganesha has finally arrived and we are filled with joy and excitement to celebrate this grand festival. The Grand celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi starts with Ganesh sthapana and ends with the visarjan of lord Ganpati in holy river on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. Here we will look forward for the various ways people use for Ganesh Visarjan.


Ganesh nimajjanam on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi!

The ritual of Ganpati visarjan can be performed on the same day of Ganesh Chaturthi right after Ganpati Puja. However, most of the puja vidhis of Hindu tradition ends with either a visarjan or utthapan.  But Ganesh chaturthi Visarjan on the same day of Ganesh Chaturthi is not so popular.

One and half day Ganesh Immersion!

One and Half day Ganpati immersion is done on the next day of Vinayaka Chaturthi. Hindu Devotees who perform this One and half day Ganpati visarjan installs Ganesha clay idol on Ganesh Chaturthi and take it for immersion on the second day during madhyana.  

3rd day visarjan, 5th day visarjan and 7th day Ganesh Chaturthi Visarjan!

Although Anant chaturdashi is the most significant day to perform Ganesh chaturthi immersion but 3rd, 5th and 7th day of the Ganpati festival are also considered as the Ganesh Visarjan days. There is one more thing to note that all these days falls on the odd numbers. Even the prime day for Ganpati murti immersion is also on the 11th day.

Ganesh Chaturthi visarjan on Anant Chaturdashi!

As said before Ananth chaturdashi is the day primarily known for Ganpati Visarjan. The day is fully echoed with the non stop chanting of Ganesh visarjan stotras, mantra and  slokas. Udwasna Mantra is chanted before moving lord ganesha’s idol for Ganpati Nimajjanam.

People offer their final prayers to Lord Ganesha and chant aparadha stotram (a pray asking for forgiveness). And also pray to him to come early next year so that celebrations can take place again. The ritual of visarjan doesn’t mean bidding farewell to lord but it is to send lord back to his abode where he belongs to.

Here are some ganpati visarjan photos, have a look!

Eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the buzzing words we are hearing this month. Ganesh Chaturthi has a new meaning this year that is truly environment friendly. Every year the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi ends with the immersion of huge lord Ganesha’s idol in rivers and sea. These big idols were made of plaster of paris, and toxic non biodegradable chemical colors. So the immersion is a major cause of harm to marine life.

Here are some example of these eco friendly ganpati or as we can say organic ganesh idols to celebrate eco friendly ganesh Chaturthi. Let’s have a look:

Awesome Collection Of Lord Ganesh HD Pictures!

By
Presenting here awesome collection of Lord Ganesh HD Pictures you can download for free. Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati is the divine deity of Hindus. Lord ganesh is also known as Ganpati, Vinayaka, Vighneshwara, VigVignesh, and Pillaiyarnesh, and Pillaiyar. The name “Ganesha” is a sanskrit word that is derived from “Gana” that refers a “Group or mass” and “Isha” that means “lord or master”.


In Hindu mythology Bhagwan Ganesh is pictured as an elephant headed figure with four hands. His curved trunk is a symbol of arousal of the powers of Kundalini and vast ears represent the ability to comprehend what others are saying. The big stomach simply refers to keep all that is within mind under wraps until it is accomplished. So Hindu lord Ganpati is inexpressible and unknowable.


Here I have gathered some Hd pictures of lord ganesha that you would like to set as your wallpaper to start your day with energy.
