Location based Sankashti Chaturthi Days

It is important to understand that the fast day for Sankashti Chaturthi could differ for two cities, even though these cities are in the same Indian state. Fasting for Sankashti Chaturthi depends on the rising of the moon and is observed the day when there is a moonrise while Chaturthi Tithi prevails. Sankashti Chaturthi's fast could therefore be observed on Tritiya Tithi, that is, one day before Chaturthi Tithi. As the moonrise time is different for all cities, it is important to check out the Hindu calendar as this website lists the days based on Sankashti Chaturthi. Since the generation of location-based dates takes time, most sources ignore this fact and publish a single listing for all Indian cities.

Ganesh Chaturthi 2019 Detailed information
Ganesh Chaturthi commemorates Lord Ganesh's birthday. On this day, beautiful artisanal idols of the Lord are installed both in homes and in public. Prana Pratishtha is executed to invoke the power of the deity in the idol, followed by a 16-step ritual known as Shodashopachara Puja. During the ritual, various offerings, including sweets, coconuts and flowers are made to the idol. The ritual should be celebrated at a convenient time around noon, known as Madhyahna, when one thinks that Lord Ganesha was born.

It is important, according to tradition, not to look at the moon during certain times on Ganesh Chaturthi. If a person sees the moon, she will be cursed with accusations of theft and dishonored by society unless she sings a certain mantra.

Apparently, this occurred after Lord Krisha was falsely accused of stealing a precious jewel. Sage Narada said that Krishna had to see the moon on Bhadrapada Shukla Chaturthi (the occasion where Ganesh Chaturthi falls) and was cursed because of it. Moreover, whoever would see the moon would be cursed in the same way

The idols of Lord Ganesha are worshiped every day, with an ati at night. The largest statues of Ganesh, exposed to the public, are usually removed and immersed in the water on Anant Chaturdasi. However, many people who keep an idol at home do the immersion well before

This spectacular festival honors the birth of the beloved Hindu elephant god, Lord Ganesha, worshiped by the people for its ability to remove obstacles and bring good fortune.

When is Ganesh Chaturthi?
Late August or early September, according to the cycle of the moon. It falls on the fourth day after the new moon in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada. In 2018, Ganesh Chaturthi is on September 13th. It is celebrated for 11 days (ending September 23), with the biggest show taking place on the last day called Anant Chaturdasi.

Where is it celebrated?
Especially in the states of Maharashtra, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. One of the best places to discover the festival is in the city of Mumbai. The celebrations take place in a special way at the Siddhivinayak Temple, located in the central suburb of Prabhadevi, which is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. Countless devotees visit the temple to join prayers and pay homage to God during the festival. In addition, about 10,000 statues of Lord Ganesh are on display in various parts of the city.

The festival begins with the installation of huge elaborate statutes of Ganesha in houses and podiums, which have been specially constructed and beautifully decorated. The craftsmen took months of effort to make the statues.

It is forbidden to watch the moon this first night because legend has it that the moon laughed of Lord Ganesha when he fell from his vehicle, the rat. On Ananta Chaturdasi (the last day), the statues parade through the streets, accompanied by many songs and dances, then submerged in the ocean or other bodies of water

Once a statue of Lord Ganesha is installed, a ceremony is undertaken to invoke his holy presence in the statue. This ritual is called Pranapratishtha Puja, during which a number of mantras are recited. Following this, a special worship is performed. Offerings of sweets, flowers, rice, coconut, jaggery and coins are made to God. The statue is also anointed with red chandan powder. Prayers are offered to Lord Ganesha every day during the festival. The temples dedicated to Lord Ganesha also organize special events and prayers. Those who have a statue of Ganesha in their home treat and care for him as a much appreciated guest.

Why are the statues of Ganesh immersed in the water at the end of the festival?

Hindus worship idols, or statues, of their gods because it gives them a visible form of prayer. They also recognize that the universe is in a constant state of change. The form ends up giving to the formless. However, the energy still remains. The immersion of statues in the ocean, or other bodies of water, and their subsequent destruction is reminiscent of this belief
