ನನ್ನ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಓದುಗ ಬಾಂಧವರಿಗೆ ಸಂಕಷ್ಟ ಹರ ಗಣಪತಿ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದನ್ನುಂಟು ಮಾಡಲಿ..

Sankashta chaturthi is a vratha or festival celebrated across Karnataka , dedicated to Lord Ganesha.. Lord Ganesha who is well known as “Vighna nivaaraka ” or one who removes all hurdles in life…  Though Sankashta chaturthi comes every month, when it falls on Tuesday it is said to be very auspicious and called as “angaaraka chaturthi” …

Shodhashopachaara pooje is performed and flowers or flower garlands are adorned to the image or idols of Lord Ganesha praying for removal of all difficulties in life…

Vratha procedure

Throughout the day fasting , late evening light foods are consumed like avalakki or poha, rava idli, dosas, rava upma, etc … Some people , if they are on medications, consume fruits and milk during day as well.. In some customs, late evening bath is taken , after seeing the moon, and arghya is given and post that light food is consumed … Whichever be the convenient way, bhakti and belief towards God is important and also fasting once in a while improves digestion and increases saatvik thoughts …
