Ganesh Chaturthi is on 13th September’18, Thursday

 Is believed Lord Ganesha was born in Madhyakaal so Lord Ganesha's Puja timing is between 11:03 to 1:30 pm.

This festival is for 11 days and you can do Visarjan or Immersion as per your beliefs and facilities. You can do visarjan on 1 ½ day, 3rd day, 5th Day, 7th day, 10th day or 11th day. 11th day is known as Anant Chaturdashi and many people do visarjan on this day.

Make sure you are following these 7 very important Guidelines before bringing Lord Ganesha’s idol-

  1. While bringing Lord Ganesh statue you must focus on the direction of Lord Ganesha trunk. The left-sided trunk is advisable. The left-sided trunk represents Ida Nadi and brings peace and relaxing energies to you. Ganesha with the Right sided trunk is considered  stubborn and it is difficult to please Him.

  2. Make sure the Ganesha’s idol is in a Sitting position. The idol of sitting Ganesha is best for the house. If you want to place Ganesha’s idol at workplace then standing Ganesha is preferable. This brings energy and enthusiasm to work.

  3. Do not bring a Ganesha’s idol without crown or ‘Mukut’. Mukut/ Crown is a symbol of Unique and big thinking and an idol without the crown is considered as inauspicious. A crown or mukut enhances the beauty of Ganesha’s idol.

  4. On Ganesh Chaturthi, bring only Ganesha’s Idol. Since we perform puja to please Lord Ganesha on this day, thus avoid an idol that has Shiva, Parvati and Ganesha together for Ganesh Chaturthi.

  5. Whenever you are placing the idol of Ganesha, remember that modak (Indian sweet) and a mouse (Mushak) should be a part of the statue.

  6. Do not set up or establish Ganesh’s idol in Bedroom or to a wall which is near or next to Bathroom. It is inauspicious as per Vastu Shastra.

  7. The area of your home that is not as per the norms of Vastu Shastra, make a Swastik with Orange sindoor and cow ghee. Doing this reduces the negative impacts of the Vastu Dosha.

Place Lord Ganesha as per these rules and get His Blessings throughout the year.

Hello, my question is regarding Ganesha’s trunk, the left side or right side is when I look at the statue? Is it left side according to Ganesha’s statue point of view or my point of view? Because if I look at the statue is on the right side but that is the left side from Ganesha’s. I hope you understand my question.
