Ganesh Chaturthi 2022: Puja Rituals and Shubh Muhurat

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated in a grand style in different parts of the country, but the most spectacular celebrations take place in Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra.

After 2 consecutive years of restricted celebrations because of COVID-19, Ganesh Chaturthi 2022 preparations are in full swing. On day 1, we welcome Lord Ganesha by installing his idol in our home.

How was Lord Ganesha Born?  . According to ancient mythology, Mata Parvati made Ganesh from sandalwood paste and asked him to guard the gate of her abode.

Lord Shiva separated his body from the head and later the Lord attached a baby elephant's head to Ganesh's body and brought him back to life. 

On Ganesh Chaturthi, don't forget to offer 'modak' to Ganapati Bappa as it's his favorite sweet. Pray to the idol only after taking a shower and wearning clean clothes. 

Even if the tithi will fall between Aug 30 and Aug 31, the festival will commence on 31st August, 2022. The tithi time has already started at 3:33 pm on Tuesday and will end on 3:22 today.  

As per ancient beliefs, on the night of Ganesh Chaturthi 2022, devotees should avoid looking at the moon. Moon sighting on this day creates a Mithya Kalank  

It is believed that praying to Lord Ganesha and celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with utmost devotion leads us to the path of wisdom and knowledge. Let us pray that Lord Ganesha ends everyone’s troubles.
