Ganesh Puja Visarjan

Offer flowers and raw rice at the chowki and recite, “O Lord! Many thanks for coming for the puja. Please receive my prasad, paath and reside again in your divine place.” To chant during Ganesh Visarjan. There is no specific mantra for Ganpati Bappa Moriya is a very popular mantra.

There are two different versions about the birth of Ganesha. One is that Goddess Parvati created Ganesha out of the filth of his body while bathing and installed him to guard his door while completing the bath. Shiva who had gone out returned at that time, but Ganesha did not know about him, so prevented him from entering. After a fight between the two, an angry Shiva beheaded Ganesha.

Parvati became furious and Shiva promised that Ganesha would live again. The gods who went in search of a dead man’s head facing north could only manage the head of an elephant. Shiva rested the elephant’s head on the child and brought him back to life.

Another legend has it that Ganesha was created by Shiva and Parvati at the request of the gods, a Vighnakarta (obstacle-builder) in the path of the demons (demonic beings) and a Vighnaharta (obstacle-destroyer) to help the Devas.
