“ Vakratunda Mahakaya Suryakoti SamaprabhaNirvighnam Kurume Deva Sarva kaaryeshu Sarvada. ”

For all auspicious occasion in India, the holy priest invokes the pooja by chanting this holy Vedic mantra. Here we are to know about the Lord Ganesh Pooja and its significance.

The Hindu elephant God, Lord Ganesh is also known as the Obstacle Destroyer. The Vedic mantra above means:

“O Lord Ganesh, you having a Curved Trunk, Large Body, possessing the Brilliance of a Million Suns,Please remove all obstacles to my work, at all times.”

Ganesha Pooja Significance In Wedding

The hym of this Vedic chant spreads positivity and zeal which is most essential on any auspicious occasion especially the wedding. The mantra itself is self-explanatory about the significance of Lord Ganesh in Hindu rituals.

The Entwined Rituals of Wedding and Ganesh Puja

The wedding begins with the procession or Baraat, where Groom with his friends and family arrives at the wedding venue. After Baraat, the Groom enters the Mandap to settle before the wedding rituals begin. Here the Priest, also known as Pandit solicits the blessings of Lord Ganesh, to remove all hitches, as a herald to the nuptials which are about to take place. This sacrament, or the rituals, is performed for good fortune to be bestowed onto the married couple and their families, so that whatever obstacles they may face will be destroyed. Hence, Lord Ganesh is also popularly known as Vighna Vinaashak.

Ganesh puja performed before the wedding is attended by the close family and friends, marking the beginning of the wedding rituals.This Lord is also considered the patron of arts and sciences as well as the god of wisdom, intellect, and beginnings.

Some important materials required in Ganesh Puja are:

The idol of Lord Ganesh placed on a raised platform and decorated.

Modak, which is Ganesh’s favourite sweet, 21 in number are required.

Red and yellow flowers signifying beauty and purity.

The Durva grass, betel nut, or Supari, Mouli or red thread, lamp and incense sticks also called the dhoop also are part of the rituals.

The most important item is the coconut. This holy fruit is offered to bequeath the blessings of Lord Shiva-, Ganesh’s father. The coconut is broken by smashing which is significant for shattering one’s ego.

The other ingredients include samagiri, sindoor and Chandan.

Ganesha Pooja Significance On Ganesha Chaturthi

The birth of the elephant headed God Ganesh is celebrated as Ganesh Chaturthi. It is a ten-day festival which begins on the fourth day (chaturthi) of the month of Bhadrapada (August–September), the sixth month of the Hindu calendar.

The festival begins with bringing an idol of Ganesh home and placing it on a raised platform. The entire set up is decorated lavishly. The worship starts with invoking life in the idol also known as the pranapratishtha. This is followed by Shhodashopachra or paying tribute in 16 different ways. The mantras are chanted from the Ganesh Upanishads and coconut jaggery and 21 modaks are offered.

One interesting fact of this festival is that the idol brought home is finally immersed in local rivers or sea after a grand procession carried out in the city with drums, dancing and singing marking the end of the festival. Huge idols of Lord Ganesh are taken in a chariot during the procession. This symbolically means, Lord Ganesh returns to his parent’s abode (Shiva and Parvati) in Mount Kailas.This festival is celebrated in an extravagant manner involving huge public sentiments.
