The Ganesha festival falls on the fourth day Bhadrapada Masa. That’s why we say “Bhadrapada Shulkada Chauthi Aamdu”. Swarna Gouri Vrata and Ganesha Festival is celebrated on Thursday August 28th and Friday August 29th 2014.

As always, check your closet temple to find the correct dates.

An idol of Gowri made of clay is brought two days before the Ganesha festival. Gowri is an incarnation of Parvathi. Gowri Habba, also called as Swarna Gowri Habba is celebrated one day before Ganesha Festival.

The Legend:

Goddess Gowri, while taking shower, created Ganesha out of the mud of and placed him at the entrance of the house. She told him not to allow anyone to enter while she went inside for a bath. Lord Shiva returned home and was stopped by Ganesha at the gate. Shiva became angry and cut off Ganesha’s head. When Gauri came to know of this she was grieved.

Lord Shiva ordered his servants to cut off and bring to him the head of any creature that might be sleeping with its head facing north. The servants went on their mission and found only an elephant in that position. Lord Shiva then joined the elephant’s head onto the body of Ganesha.

Mr. Lakshmisha P, had left a comment here that he had the pdf files for the Swarnagowri vratha puja & katha. Attached below are the links for both the pdf files he has provided.
Thanks so much Me. Lakshmisha for all the support and also the time you have taken to convert this into pdf.

We used to sing at the top of our voice “Ganesha bhanda, kai kadubu tinda, chikka kerele edda, dodda kereli bidda”.

Lord Ganesha is not just worshiped on this day, but is worshiped first in all occasions since he is considered to be the remover of all obstacles, one who brings good luck on new activities or endeavors.

As always links for several resources songs, lyrics and stotras are posted on this blog.

P.S: If you would like to get email updates on when new articles are added, you can subscribe by clicking on the left hand side on the “RSS Feed“. It will take you to a new page, and you can enter your email ID.

And here comes the link which has colorful and many designs for drawing Rangoli

And can any festival be complete without authentic dishes? Here are some recipes posted in this blog:

In case you see the moon on this day, here is the sloka you are supposed to say:

ಚೌತಿ ಚಂದ್ರ ದರ್ಶನ ಅಪವಾದ ಪರಿಹಾರಕ್ಕಾಗಿ

ಸಿಂಹಃ ಪ್ರಸೇನಮವಧೀತ್
ಸಿಂಹೋ ಜೌ0ಬವತಾ ಹತಃ |
ಸುಕುಮಾರಕ ಮಾರೋದಿಃ
ತವಹ್ಯೇಷ ಸ್ಯ್ಮಮಂತಕಃ ||

Simha prasenamavadith
simho jambhuvatha hathah |
sukumaraka marodhihi
thavahyesha syamanthakaha ||

P.S: The above sloka in Kannada is exactly as it is in the Uttaradi Matta Panchanga. Rather than taking a picture, I typed in the words. The English translation is done from the Kannada sloka to the best of my knowledge.

As always no food is prepared with onion or garlic.

Many of you have asked for the Pooja Vidhana of the festival, I do have the book for Ganesha festival, and it is several pages. I had no time at all to translate it into English. So, here is the link for the pooja vidhanas for both Gowri and Ganesha pooja. Hopefully I will have them next year.

P.S:  If you have a scanned copy of the Ganesha Vrata Pooja Vidhana, please share. I can post it here.

Gowri Ganesha Festival Pictures – 2013

It was a festive day yesterday. Just the thought of doing pooje to our Lord Ganesha lit up the mind. As always, the blog, the computer and the phone assisted us in many many ways. :)

Attached are some pictures of the greatest festival at my place, my sisters place and Shree Siva Vishnu Temple which we visited in the evening, before our evening pooje.

जय अम्बे गौरी, मैया जय श्यामा गौरी ।
तुमको निसदिन ध्यावत, हरि ब्रह्मा शिवरी
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

मांग सिंदूर विराजत, टीको जगमग को ।
उज्वल से दो नैना, चंद्रवदन नीको ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

कनक समान कलेवर, रक्ताम्बर राजै ।
रक्त पुष्प गलमाला, कण्ठन पर साजै ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

केहरि वाहन राजत, खड़ग खप्परधारी ।
सुर नर मुनिजन सेवक, तिनके दुखहारी ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

कानन कुण्डल शोभित, नासाग्रे मोती ।
कोटिक चन्द्र दिवाकर, समराजित ज्योति ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

शुम्भ निशुम्भ विदारि, महिषासुर घाती ।
धूम्र विलोचन नैना, निसदिन मदमाती ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

चण्ड मुण्ड संहारि, शोणित बीज हरे ।
मधुकैटभ दौ मारे, सुर भयहीन करे ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

ब्रहमाणी रुद्राणी तुम कमला रानी ।
आगम निगम अबकानी, तुम शिव पटरानी ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

चौसठ योगिनी गावत, नृत्य करत भैरव् ।
बाजत ताल मृदंगा, और बाजत डमरु ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

तुम ही जग की माता, तुम ही हो भर्ता ।
भक्तन की दुःख हरता, सुख-सम्पत्ति करता ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

भुजा चार अति शोभित, वरमुद्राधारी ।
मनवांछित फल पावत, सेवत नर नारी ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

कंचन थाल विराजित, अगर कपूर बाती ।
श्री भालकॆत में राजत, कोटि रतन ज्योति ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥

श्री अम्बे जी की आरती, जो कोई नर गावै ।
कहत शिवानन्द स्वामी, सुख सम्पत्ति पावै ।
ऒं जय अंबे गौरी ॥
