Ganesh Chaturthi 2017 (also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, Vinayaka Chavithi, Ganesh Chauth and Vinayagar Chaturthi) is the festival celebrated in honour of the elephant-headed god, Ganesha.
On Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Ganesh is worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune in Bhadrapada month (mid-August to mid-September). Ganesh Pooja is preferred during Madhyanhana on Ganesh Chaturthi as it is believed that Lord Ganesh was born during Madhyahana Kaal. The best Muhurut time to perform the Ganesh Puja and to perform any work is 11:06 to 13:39.
How to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in 2017
A clay model of Lord Ganesha which is made 2-3 months prior to the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The size of this idol may vary from 3/4th of an inch to over 25 feet. On the day of the festival, it is placed in homes or elaborately decorated outdoor tents for people to view and pay their homage.
For 10 days, from Bhadrapad Shudh Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi, Ganesha is worshiped. On the 11th day, the image is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied by dancing, singing, to be immersed in a river or the sea. This symbolizes a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of all man.
