GANESH Chaturthi Celebration in detail.

Ganesh Chaturthi falls on 1 st September this year. What you see below are the Ganesha idols made by my brother -in-law last year. Every year he makes by procuring the clay and he has been doing it almost for the past 55years, and in whichever part of the world he is in. And the last two small ones are made by his 3  grand sons . He has a set of accessories to decorate like the silver vibuthi , mukut, garlands, prabhai etc.

Ganehsa chaturthi is celebrated around the country and Lord Ganesha is the remover of Obstacles, vigna naasaka. 

The more one worships Him , the more he faces success in his endeavour. 

If the clay Vinayakar moorthy is available get it from the market. It's always better to go for  Go Green , to protect the environment.
 Decorate the wooden plank or manai by putting the kolam and welcome Pillayaar in this.

As one prepares for any pooja, clean the pooja room and decorate with Mango leaves. Collect the leaves for the Archana along with the flowers and sugarcane piece, as He is the Elephant God. Dhruva aka trefoil  [ arugam pull ] and erukkam poo maalai are  important.

On the day of pooja as we welcome Varalakshmi , do the same by bringing the idol from the entrance .Place the Moorthy on a platform or manai, and decorate with all the garlands, poonal [ sacred thread ] and the pillayaar veshti [ dhoti] It can be in any color or the typical one which we get ready- made in the market.

Start the pooja once the neivediyams [ laddu, moadakam of sweet, karam , kozhukattai, sundal, appam, aval, pori, vadai, payasam along with varieties of fruits ] are ready by following the pooja vidaanam. For those who do not know anything a simple chanting of the slokas would do apart from the pushpa archana  by saying OM, SREE GANESHAYA NAMAHA:// 108 times.
