Visarjan at our home with Our Eco-friendly Ganesha – Ganesh Chaturthi – 2017

Visarjan at our home with Our Eco-friendly Ganesha – Ganesh Chaturthi – 2017

Visarjan is one of the most important part of Vinayagar Chaturthi / Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Visarjan means “Immersing the idol of Lord Ganesh in any water body, usually people use to immerse in lake, river, sea”. After the celebrations people carry Ganesha Idol along the streets by dancing towards the water body to immerse them.

But now as per the environmental security, most of us get Eco-friendly Ganesh idols. These Eco-friendly idols are made completely with clay and designed with beautiful color papers, kundan stones and Jhamkis.

It was from last year I got eco-friendly Ganesha Idol and after our celebrations are over, we perform puja, and for Visarjan – since we have a small Ganesha idol (1 ½ feet), we used to immerse Ganesha idol in a bucket full of water, and wait for a day until it dissolves in water.

Once it’s done, I separate the colour papers, kundan stones, jhamkis from the water. Transfer only the water to other bucket, then spread out the clay over a big sheet. I mix these clay with the soil in a proportion of 1:5, later fill those in the empty flower pots and plant herbs, table roses or sow seeds. Also pour the collected water to other flower pots and plants at our home.

I believe my Ganesha stays with me and shower his blessings through out the year. Also Happy that my kids come to know what Ganesh Chaturthi is, how to celebrate it Eco-friendly. Let’s save our mother earth by teaching our kids (future generation) the term “ECO-FRIENDLY”.

This time Vinayagar Chaturthi was most beautiful, as we celebrated with all our friends in apartment and then at home as usual. We had a good time, each one of us made a dish, all of us dreesed up in a traditional way, then had Pooja and then distributed the Prasad to everyone. The very first time I prepared 50 Modaks for Prasad, very happy.

In our home, we decorate Lord Ganesha, prepared dishes, offered Lord Ganesha and performed Pooja. Here are some of the clipping taken during Pooja –

Vinayakar Chaturthi is the great Vinayakar festival and also the birthday of Lord Vinayagar or Pillaiyar. Vinayaka Chaturthi is also known as “Ganesh Chaturthi” in Maharashtra and North Indian States. It is observed in the 4th day after new moon in the Tamil month – Aavani (August-September). This year 2014 it is celebrated on August 19th. Lord Ganesha is the elephant-headed God who is worshipped first in any prayers and before commencing any new ventures.

He is known as to be the Lord of Power and Wisdom. He is the Lord who is believed to remove all obstacles on the path of the spiritual aspirant, and bestows upon him wordly as well as spiritual success. It is believed that worshipping Lord Ganesha during this festival will bring Good luck and Prosperity to the family.

Vinayaka Chaturti Festival is celebrated with the clay Idol of Lord Vinayagar. Those Vinayagar idols are kept at home and street corners and performed pooja. For pooja we make garland with Arugam pullu (Bermuda grasss) and Erukampoo (Crown flower). Also they decorate the Lord with other flowers, umbrellas and so on. Later on the 11th day, those Vinayagar Idols are taken through the roads in a procession with dance and songs to immersed in sea or river or well.

According to the Hindu Vedic Sculptures, it is believed that Ganesha was born in the Madhyahana Kaal (Afternoon), as this Kaal timings are considered as the most appropriate tem to worship Lord Ganesha.

Also we offer Modak, Appam, Fruits, Aval, Poori and so on for Lord Ganesha and do our prayers.

I have prepared and offered Lord Ganesha:
