Significance of Ganesh Visarjan
Devotees strongly believe that on Ganpati Visarjan, Lord Ganesha returns to his home on Mount Kailash. The celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi conclude with the massive Visarjan, which is the immersion of Lord Ganesha’s idol in the sea or any water body. Lord Ganesha is believed to be the remover of all obstacles from the lives of his devotees and the God of good beginnings. In Hindu rituals, Lord Ganesha is paid reverence before any auspicious task. Hence, Lord Ganesha is worshiped first, no matter the occasion.
On this occasion, devotees pay their respects and reverence to the spiritual and divine state. The event commemorates Lord Ganesha’s journey from “Aakar” to “Nirakar.” This is the only Hindu festival that honors and celebrates the spiritual and physical manifestations of the divine being.
The Ganeshotsav, starting on Ganesh Chaturthi, culminates on Anant Chaturdashi. It is also an important day to worship the divine Lord Vishnu in the eternal Anant form. Along with Ganesh Visarjan, Anant Chaturdashi fast is also observed by devotees of Lord Vishnu. They tie a sacred thread during the Puja, as it is believed that the sacred thread protects people from troubles.
