Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most important festivals of the Hindus. It is celebrated on the fourth day of the Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight), during the month of Bhadrapada. According to the scriptures, it is believed that Lord Ganesha was born on this day and this is the reason why it is celebrated as Ganesh Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi. Also known as Kalank Chaturthi and Danda Chaturthi, the festival is celebrated as Ganesh Utsav by the people of Maharashtra with a great enthusiasm and devotion.

Ganesha Chaturthi rituals

  • After bathing oneself, take the gold, copper or mud idol of Lord Ganesh, and worship it as the Siddhivinayak incarnation of Lord Ganesha.
  • Take a new Kalash, and after covering its opening with a new cloth, establish the idol of Lord Ganesha on it.
  • Offer Durva and vermillion (sindoor) to Lord Ganesha. After that offer 21 Laddu (round sweets), and distribute them as Prasad among the Brahmins or poor people.


Why is it forbidden to see the Moon on Ganesha Chaturthi?


It is strictly prohibited to look at the Moon on the day of Ganesha Chaturthi. Seeing the Moon inflicts a one year long curse on the person who does it and the person becomes a victim to false allegations which might disrupt his life. Even Lord Krishna was not spared of this curse. If by mistake, someone looks at the Moon, then there is no need to fret yourself. There is a mantra, which needs to be chanted for 28, 54 or 108 times to guard yourself from the consequences of looking at the Moon. Reciting the 57th Adhyaya of 10th Skanda of Srimad Bhagwata also helps in getting rid of the Dosha (curse).

Mantra to eliminate the Chandra Darshan Dosha :

Sinha prasenamavadheet sinho jaambavataa Hatah|
Sukumarak maa rodistava hyesha syamantaka ||

( सिंहःप्रसेनमवधीत् , सिंहो जाम्बवता हतः।
सुकुमारक मा रोदीस्तव, ह्येष स्यमन्तकः।। )

At AstroSage, we hope to have enlightened you with deep insights of this festival and we wish you a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

Importance of Hartalika Teej


It is believed that whosoever venerates the divine couple of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is blessed by Goddess Parvati herself. Girls who are looking for a good husband and married women utilise this golden chance to get themselves a blissful marital life. According to the legends, it was on this day that a friend of Goddess Parvati abducted her and took her into a thick forest in order to help her. This is where Hartalika Teej gets its name from, as Harit means to abduct and Aalika means friend. It is believed that anyone who observes this fast with unswerving devotion is bound to get a happy married life.

How to observe the Hartalika Teej fast?


Hartalika Teej is celebrated on the third day of the brighter fortnight during the month of Bhadrapada. This date holds immense importance for the worship of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Idols of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are made by the devotees by using sand, and are worshipped vehemently by them. Consumption of any kind of cereal or water is strictly prohibited during the fast, and only fruits are used as the prasad.


The worship of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is done during the night of the Hartalika Teej. The fast is concluded on the next day after all the Puja rituals are completed.

At AstroSage, we hope that this Hartalika Teej brings happiness in your life!

Apart from the Solar eclipse or surya grahan, Somvati amasya is also falling on the same date. Let’s know how this day is auspicious for Pitra Poojan. 

Somvati Amavasya


Somvati amavasya falls on the Monday coinciding with Amavasya (New Moon). This day holds a lot of significance in Hindu mythology and falls twice a year. This year, Somvati amavasya is falling on 21st August and 18th December. The Monday or somvar is dedicated to Lord Shiv, making it a much auspicious day. Females keep fast on this day for their husband’s longevity and people offer libation to their ancestors. Also, this day is considered to be very opportune to organise Pitra dosh Puja. 

Significance of Somvati Amavasya


This day holds the significance of offering donations and having holi river bath. Females worship Peepal tree on this day and perform Prikrama. Parikrama has a deep implication in hindu mythology and it believed to bring positivity and peace in one’s life. Though, Pitra tarpan can be observed on any amavasya but SOmvati amavasya has an upper hand on it. 

Somvati Amavasya Puja Vidhi


  1. While bathing in holi river in the morning and praying to your ancestors brings peace and positivity.
  2. Offer water to Surya Dev and Tulsi plant. Along with that, feed cow with curd and rice.
  3. Married females should perform Peepal tree puja as per the rituals.
