Sankashti Chaturthi-Sakat Chauth Significance

In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha is given the status of the one who removes all obstacles. He frees his devotees of all disparity and blesses them with happiness. Due to this, many festivals and fasts are observed to appease him but the Sankashti Chaturthi fast is the most special and auspicious of them all.

The term ‘Sankashti’ is taken from Sanskrit which translates to ‘getting rid of tough times. So, Sankashti Chaturthi means the Chaturthi that frees from the crisis.
