share on:

There is no doubt that we Indians are truly dedicated to our religion and our mythological belief that’s the reason that we enjoy and celebrate every occasion related to any religion with full Faith and reverence.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Devotees of Ganesha wait all over a year to celebrate the 10- day dedicated Ganesh Chaturthi festival and bring home the idols of Lord Ganesha to their home to seek blessings from him.

We Hindus celebrate the Ganesh Chaturthi for over 10 days and on the 11th day, we do Ganesh Visarjan.  On the 11th day of this festival, the statue of the Lord Ganesha is immersed in the river or the sea and prays to come back again to give us the blessing.

It is the most celebrated festival in whole Maharashtra as well as in the states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

The significance

The word immersion is the Sanskrit language word meaning it is merged into the water and it is a respected process whenever we worship the idol of a god in the house and after that, they are honored and immersed.

It is considered as that the Lord Ganesha is a sign of success, luck, and prosperity. The devotees of Lord Ganesha bring the statue of the god in their home so that God blesses them with success and good health.

Immersion teaches that human beings will have to sacrifice this birth to get the next birth. Ganesh Ji’s idol is made of clay, it is worshiped but then they have to be immersed to come next year. Thus, our life is the same, and we have to fulfill our responsibilities and when the time is over, we will have to leave this birth for the next life.

Ganesha has to resort to clay to come to the idol form, a soil is a natural form, but once the Ganesha merges into the water. It makes us understand that, whatever nature has taken, it will have to return, as we came empty hands and has to go in the same way.
