Chaturthi Tithi dear to Lord Ganesha…
In Sanatan Dharma, the first revered Shree Ganesh ji is considered as one of the Adi Panch Devas. It is believed that meditation of Lord Shri Ganesha ends all obstacles. That is why they are also called disruptors of destruction. At the same time, in astrology, Shri Ganesha is known as the causative god of Mercury, and Mercury is considered to be the factor of intelligence.
As such, many festivals are celebrated in the year of Shri Ganesh, including Sankashti Chaturthi and Vinayak Chaturthi. Actually, the Chaturthi of Shukla Paksha after Amavasya is called Vinayaka Chaturthi and the Chaturthi of Krishna Paksha after Poornima is called Sankashti Chaturthi.
At the same time, on the last day of this month i.e. March 2021, on Wednesday 31 March i.e. on the Chaturthi date of Krishna Paksha of Chaitra month, Bhalchandra Sankashti Chaturthi is falling. Which will last till the first day of April 2021.
The fasting of Bhalchandra Sankashti Chaturthi is considered very important for Ganesh devotees, as Chaturthi Tithi is the favorite date of Lord Ganesha. It is to be known that Chaturthi falls twice every month – Krishna Paksha (Sankashti Chaturthi) and Shukla Paksha (Vinayaka Chaturthi). According to the Hindi calendar, 13 Sankashti Chaturthi fasts are observed throughout the year.
In this, Sankashti Chaturthi means one who defeats all the crises. On the other hand, like Vinayaka Chaturthi, worship of Lord Shiva’s son Ganesh is also done in Sankashti Chaturthi. On this day, Ganesha fasts to get the blessings of Lord Ganesha. According to the belief, Sankashti Chaturthi fast is one who fulfills wishes, and it is also believed that all the sorrows of a person who fast on this day are over.
According to Pandit Sunil Sharma, during this time all the wishes are fulfilled by reciting Ganesh ji’s Aarti, his mantra and chalisa with full devotion.
Apart from this, by performing this fast, Vighnaharta Ganesh removes all the troubles and obstacles of Lord Jataka. This fast is especially observed by mothers for the advancement of their children.
