Lord Ganesha is worshiped before any of the god in Hindu mythology. Ganesh Chaturthi also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi is celebrated grandly by Hindus around the world as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. This festival is very much popular between the devotees from western India state of Maharashtra in the Hindi month of Bhadra (mid-August to mid-September).
For Ganesh Chaturthi a life-like clay model of Lord Ganesha is made months before the festival. The size of the model varies from a 3/4th of an inch to over 25 feet. On the vary day of festival, the model is placed at a platform which is raised in order to make Ganesh Ji viewable to all devotes coming to pay respect to him. This 10 day festival celebrated in every part of Maharashtra excites the priests’ usually attired red silk dhoti and shawl. Chanting Vedic hymns from the Rig Veda and Ganapati Atharva Shirsha Upanishad, and Ganesha stotra from the Narada Purana priests raise GaneshJi’s clay model on their shoulders and after revolving it throughout the city disperse it into the holy water body with a promise to see him in the same health and prosperity next year.
