Things to Avoid on this Day

  • If you committed any mistake before the Visarjan and the time period of ten days of Ganesh Utsav, then seek an apology from the Lord immediately.
  • It is seen that many people randomly throw the idol of Lord Ganesha into the waters. This shouldn’t be the case as you should properly immerse the idol into the river or the water body. Along with this, you should also immerse some flowers, fruits, clothes along with the idol. 
  • Try to keep up with the latest traditions and bring an eco-friendly idol of Lord Ganesha home which can be immersed very easily at your own house and you can reuse the water after the Puja rituals are completed successfully.
  • Try to bid adieu to Bappa in a cheerful mood. Take an oath to welcome him home next year once again.
  • Do not wear black coloured clothes on the day of Visarjan. If possible, wear colourful clothes.
  • Do not consume any intoxicating substances on the day of Visarjan.
  • Do not remain angry with anyone and make it a prerogative not to not shout at anyone. Try to keep a tab on your speech on this day.
  • Whenever Lord Ganesha’s idol is taken for immersion, some of his various names like Aadi Pujya Bhagwan, Lumbodar, Vakratund, Vighnaharta, Mangala Murthy must be recited. 
  • It is noted down in the scriptures that whenever a farewell is given to someone in Hindu religion and culture, he/she must be asked to come again. Hence, we should also tell Bappa with a firm voice to come again next year.

Ganesh Visarjan : Significance

In the realm of Hindu culture and religion, it is Lord Ganesha who is paid reverence to before initiating any auspicious task. Hence, he is given the status of the Lord who is worshipped first, no matter what the occasion is. Reciting the Ganesha Vandana especially during an auspicious task is considered quite important. This is so because on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, Hindus all across the nation bring Lord Ganesha to their homes with great reverence and worship him with a devoted heart and mind.

The vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, which lasts for ten long days, comes to an end with the Ganpati Visarjan. This is the particular day when the idol of Lord Ganesha is immersed in the holy waters. But how many of you know that this beautiful festival does not only have religious significance but is also symbolic of national Unity?

For the convenience of the readers let us tell you the reason behind this. Years ago, Chhatrapati Shivaji initiated the practice of organising a collective Ganesh Utsav to keep the unity of his people intact. Once again in the year 1857, Lokmanya Tilak  restarted this tradition to keep the Maratha Unity alive. It was from this very day that the tradition of celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with much pomp and show came into existence.
