About Ganesh Chaturthi

Chaturthi is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Ganesh (Ganesha), the
god of wisdom and prosperity on the fourth day of the moons bright
fortnight, or period from new moon in the lunar month of Bhadrapada.
The celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi continue for five, seven, or ten
days. Some even stretch it to twenty one days, but ten the most
popularly celebrated. In the tradition of the right hand path the first
day is the most important. In the left hand path tradition the final
day is most important.
tale tells of how one day the Gods decided to choose their leader and a
race was to be held between the brothers- Kartikeya and Ganesh. Whoever

Ganaadhipati or leader, now referred to as Ganpati.

immediately cursed the moon that whoever looks at it on Ganesh
Chaturthi will be accused of a wrong doing. The symbology behind the
mouse and snake and Ganesha’s big belly and its relationship to the
moon on his birthday is highly philosophic. The whole cosmos is known
to be the belly of Ganesha. Parvati is the primordial energy. The seven
realms above, seven realms below and seven oceans, are inside the
cosmic belly of Ganesha, held together by the cosmic energy (kundalini
) symbolized as a huge snake which Ganesha ties around Him. The mouse
