Vinayak / Sankashti Chaturthi (Sept 9 2017)
Vedas form the core of Hinduism and Lord Ganesh is the deity to be worshipped first according to Shastras. He is always worshipped first at the beginning of any ritual or rite. In fact mythology has it that his worship is said to have started with a single stone that resembled his form. Such natural embodiments of this elephant faced, potbellied Deity came to be revered as Swayambhu Ganesh. Matsya Purana describes the birth of Vinayaka at the beginning of time when Devi Parvati sprinkled holy water on herself and gave birth to him. Worshipping Ganesh bestows a devotee with intellect and wisdom; two very powerful weapons to overcome problems.
Om Gum Ganapataye Namah” a chant which invokes this god is known to bless the devotee with tremendous will to overcome obstacles. Lord Ganesh is worshipped using Durva, red hibiscus flowers, red kumkum, Haldi and Akshat. He is offered laddus, modak and kheer as Prasad. As per ancient texts the eight Siddhis could be obtained by anyone who sincerely worshipped Lord Ganesh. Rudraksha; a mystical seed of divine intervention are Lord Shiva’s gift to mankind. They are found from 1-21 mukhi in nature and each mukhi is assigned a deity from the Hindu pantheon. The eight mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Ganesh. The Ganesh Rudraksha is also graced by his blessings. Buying, wearing or gifting this divine seed is of utmost priority if obstacles in life are raising their ugly head more frequently than usual. Shraddh Paksha is a time when offerings for the ancestors can be done. Wearing a Rudraksha and conducting the relevant rites or rituals sends blessings along the ancestral line. Also donating a Rudraksha Japamala is considered to remove obstacles or impediments caused by Pitru Dosha. This Vinayak Chaturthi is falling in Shraddh Paksha on a Saturday. This day is significant for absolving ancestral Karmic debts which can pose obstacles.
On Vinayak Chaturthi people get up early, bathe, offer prayers, flowers, fruits and all other things dear to Lord Ganesh. Some people observe a fast and consume root vegetables, fruits, Sabudana Khichdi. This fast is broken only after sighting the moon at night. When a person wears the relevant Rudraksha and observes this day; a multitude of divine energy is drawn to him as per scriptures.
Also if it was accompanied by relevant Astro-numerology predictions and energized by a Hindu Pandit with powerful ancient Vedic mantras the benefits would be multiple.
