Ganesha Chaturthi falls on the 4th day of the bright fortnight of Bhadrapada and is also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi. Archetypal Being Ganesha, being closest to the material plane of consciousness, is the most capable to assist us in our day-to- day life concerns.

Ganesha Chathurthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi

It is believed that Archetypal Being Ganesha remains on the earth plane on Vinayaka Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chavithi to bestow His presence on all his devotees. Archetypal Being Ganesha is considered as an accessible God who is very special to humans. Being a secondary God not elevated to the highest level like Archetypal Beings Shiva or Vishnu, He is very close to the human beings. The advantage for this is that Ganesha understands human problems clearly and can clear them out of the way before they create any problems.

Significance of Ganesh Chathurthi lies in the way in which people attach themselves with all their devotion and faith to the care and pampering of the all-embracing Vinayaka (another name of Ganesha). The Power of Ganesha is the primordial energy of whole cosmos and it gets multiplied on Ganesh Chaturthi (Ganesha Chaturthi). Archetypal Being Ganesha lifts our consciousness to the next chakra, uniting us with our inner guru, thus reaching the third eye where the root source as Ganapathy that is symbolized by the Root Chakra, the Muladhara.

Archetypal Being Ganesha rules over the Muladhara Chakra, which represents both the extremes of the fear factor. When it is slow, the person feels highly insecure while when it is in high speed the person is prone to take extreme risks. Ganesha balances this Chakra. He stimulates intelligence, enhances the problem solving skills, stabilizes emotions, removes obstacles or hurdles and hand holds you to success.

The priests recite chants and invocations into the statue and guide the transference of your karma to the effigy. After the completion of the Ganesh Chaturthi 2013 rituals, the clay Ganeshas will be submerged and dissolved in the Coromandel Sea.
