Season's Best Wishes To Our Hindu Brethren on Ganesh Chaturthi - 2012

Heartiest greetings on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi to all our Hindu friends around the globe and other planets!

In many parts of India, Ganesh Chaturthi is also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chavathi. Lord Ganesha is the elephant-headed son of Shiva and Parvati and the brother of Lord Murugan. It is celebrated in honors of the birth of elephant-headed God, Lord Ganesha, with great joy and passion for 10 days.

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great devotion all over India. People bring home murtis of Lord Ganesha and celebrate the festival by worshiping the Lord in a special way for a day and a half, 5 days, 7 days or 11 days depending on the family tradition and commitment of each individual. On the last day of worship the idol is taken out in a colorful and musical procession to be immersed traditionally at a beach.
This is, by far one of the most popular festivals in India. There are several reasons for this. Ganpati (as He is fondly known as) is after all a popular God. His blessings are invoked at most religious ceremonies as He is the one who can remove all obstacles to success. He is the giver of fortune and can help to avoid natural calamities.

Lord Ganesh is worshipped as God of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. Ganpati is the herald of auspicious beginnings and is the beloved deity of all.

May this Ganesh Chaturthi bring everlasting peace on our planet!
