Ward Off Ketu’s Negativity


“Worshiping Lord Ganesha is very important for nullifying malefic effects of Ketu. If you are suffering from Ketu’s major-period or sub-period, or if there are problems related to business, job or health, chant the Mantra “ॐ गं गणपतये नमः” 21000 times on this sacred day. Offer Doob Grass, (also known as Durva) and Motichoor Laddoo to Lord Ganesha. Perform Havan with the one tenth part of the Mantra and offer food to Brahmins. You will be liberated from all problems related to Ketu.”

Ganesh Chaturthi: Birth Story of Lord Ganesha


Lord Ganesha is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha was crafted by Goddess Parvati from sandalwood (Chandan) paste, for her protection. Once Parvati had to go for bath and to make sure nobody enters inside, she instructed Lord Ganesha to stand at the door. While Ganesha was guarding the door, Lord Shiva arrived and tried to go inside. As Lord Ganesha wasn’t aware about the Lord, he stopped him from going inside. Ganesha’s this act frustrated Shiva and in extreme anger, he chopped off Ganesha’s head. However, after knowing the truth from Maa Parvati, Lord Shiva realized his mistake and replaced the head of Ganesha with an elephant’s head and Ganesha became alive. It is said that from that day, it was declared that Lord Ganesha would always be worshiped before worshiping other deities.
