Today is Vinayaka Chaturthi .. Today is the rare day when the birth star and date of Lord Ganesha come together. Often the white quadruped of the lion and the star do not come together. Therefore, this time Vinayaka Chaturthi has many special features.
On the day of Vinayaka Chaturthi, the Lord should be worshiped with fasting. It is believed that God will remove all the obstacles of the devotees who do so. It is believed that the Ganapati Homa, Unniyappam, Modak, Ada Nivedya and Ganapati Upasana performed on this day are more effective. It is very good to chant Lord Ganesha’s original mantra ‘Om Gam Ganapataye Nama:’.
It is also a good idea to meditate on Modak and Kozhukkatta at home on that day and offer them to the family after the meal.
It is very good to take Vinayaka Chaturthi fast. It is believed that if this fast is performed, all obstacles will be removed for a year till the next Vinayaka Chaturthi. Fasting should be started once on the eve of Chaturthi. Fishmongers should abstain, do not bathe in oil, and do not sleep during the day.
It is good to recite these hymns today, the day of Vinayaka Chaturthi
