What is Ganesha Chaturthi?


Ganesha Chaturthi is a yogic holiday that has been officially celebrated since the 1600s. However the image and qualities of this ancient mythological deity goes back to it's first mentioning in the Rg Veda.

The earliest mention of Ganapati is found in the Rigveda. It appears twice in the Rigveda, once in shloka 2.23.1, as well as in shloka 10.112.9.[20][21][22] Both of these shlokas imply a role of Ganapati as "the seer among the seers, abounding beyond measure in food presiding among the elders and being the lord of invocation", while the shloka in mandala 10 states that without Ganapati "nothing nearby or afar is performed without thee".

In the mythology of India & Yoga, Ganesha Chaturthi is celebrated as the day that Ganesha first arrived upon the earth.

In a similar but perhaps more pragmatic way, we can use this evening to invite the qualities which Ganesha represents into our own hearts, minds & spirits.

Gana-Isha literally means:

The Power to Control from Within

And this is why Ganesha is an important aspect to remember in our own lives as we seek harmony, balance, courage & strength to overcome that which stands in the way of who we are destined to become!
