Yes, Ganesh Chathurthi which is known as one of the most vibrant festivals of India celebrates the birth of the Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha is known for its notorious character and also a symbol for a new beginning in your life. This festival is celebrated actually on the fourth day of the Bhadrapada month of the Hindu calendar. Although the celebrations for Ganesh Chathurthi are on for 10 days, preparations are started months in advance with making of Ganesha idols using clay.
Before Ganesha idol is brought home or on special tents called pandals, the place is cleaned. Then the idol is there in the house or pandal for 10 days and every day there is pooja. After the pooja, Lord Ganesha’s favorite sweets called modak are distributed.
In addition, Ganesh Chathurthi also denotes the emphasis of education in Hindu Mythology. As we all know, Lord Ganesha has set out a different standard for education. So, let us have a glance at how it gives importance to education.
- Buddhi: According to Hindu mythology, Buddhi refers to intelligence that can only be conveyed through knowledge. Knowledge is the main source of the presence of your mind. Lord Ganesha said that acknowledging good education imparts good ethics and habits within a person. This will result in the path of success, education, great knowledge and also deeper understanding towards the society.
- Siddhi: Siddhi infers to the spiritual powers and enlightenment towards everyone in the society. The most positive type of knowledge that one could possess in the whole life is the knowledge to think. ‘Siddhi’ is also termed as a branch of brightness, which can only be achieved after the highest level of intellect is attained. If you have greater knowledge, then you will have the power to control everything & shape it according to the situation. Moreover, Siddhi was the wife of Ganesha and is placed as one of the highest positions in Hindu culture. This is the reason it is considered as an important source of knowledge, prosperity & intellect.
- Vinayaka: Lord Ganesha is also known as Vinayaka which means to ‘know all, do all. In simple words, it gives you the sole authority that gives you a solution to all problems prevailing in one’s life. So, Lord Ganesha is considered as the God of Happiness. In the same manner, knowledge comes as an alternative to one’s problem.
Further, it is believed that education is a source of inspiration among all the devotees of Lord Ganesha.
