Ganpati Visarjan Rituals During The Pandemic

  • Devotees must refrain from carrying out the immersion process outside and rather do it in a drum or bucket at home.
  • If performing the Visarjan is not possible at home, people living close to natural water bodies like lakes and ponds must go to the designated sites for the Visarjan. Those staying close to artificial water bodies like water tanks can immerse the idol of Ganpati in such authorised spots.
  • Try performing the concluding Aarti and Puja at your respective houses and not at the Visarjan sites.
  • Wear proper masks and maintain the necessary hygiene, apart from abiding by the social distancing protocol.
  • Devotees must avoid gathering in large numbers and not carry out processions.
  • When you go out for immersion, make sure to hand over Lord Ganesh’s idol to the staff of the immersion spot rather than doing it yourself to avoid crowding. 

Ganpati Mantra To Appease The Lord

वक्रतुंड महाकाय सूर्यकोटि समप्रभ। निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा ।।

vakratuṃḍa mahākāya sūryakoṭi samaprabha। nirvighnaṃ kuru me deva sarvakāryeṣu sarvadā ।।

Forbidden Moon Sighting On Ganesh Chaturthi

It is believed that looking at the Moon on Ganesh Chaturthi is forbidden as doing so can lead to Mithya Kalank or Mithya Dosh, i.e., the false allegations of stealing something. The legend has it that Lord Krishna was also wrongly accused of stealing precious jewellery, so he called Syamantaka to explain his situation. After understanding Lord Krishna’s condition, Narada Muni told him that it all happened because he saw the Moon on Shukla Chaturthi of Bhadrapada month, which resulted in Mithya Dosh. He also informed Krishna that this curse is given to the Moon by Lord Ganesh. Sage Narad suggested Krishna to observe a fast on Ganesh Chaturthi to get rid of Mithya Dosha.

Mantra to Eradicate Chandra Dosha

Do not have a vision of the Moon on Bhadrapada Shukla Chaturthi. If by mistake you have a sight of the Moon, it is profitable to hear the story of the theft of Syamantak gem cited in the 10th stanza of chapter 56-57 of Bhagwat Gita to do way its ill effects. This will evade the danger of the false stigma of theft.    

Unknowingly, if the Moon is sighted, the person is advised to consume water purified by the recitation of the following Mantra.-

सिंहः प्रसेनमवधीत्‌ , सिंहो जाम्बवता हतः। सुकुमारक मा रोदीस्तव, ह्येष स्यमन्तकः ॥/

siṃhaḥ prasenamavadhīt‌ , siṃho jāmbavatā hataḥ। sukumāraka mā rodīstava, hyeṣa syamantakaḥ ॥

The Mantra should be recited at least for 21 or 54, or 108 times. By doing so, the person is purified and gets rid of false allegations.  

Beautiful and attractive Prasen was killed by the lion for the possession of the gem (Mani) and the lion was killed by Jambavant. Now, Jambavant will be the rightful owner of the gem. No doubt, the false stigma of theft is attributed to the person for sighting the Moon on Bhadrapada Shukla Chaturthi. By reciting this Mantra or listening to the legend of Symantaka Mani Katha, the ill effect of sighting the Moon is reduced.
