Visarjan comes after 10 or 11 days of Ganesh Chaturthi or Ganeshotsav which in
itself is a big festival celebrated by Hindu devotees.. It is a significant
event that expresses a goodbye to cute Ganesha who is a deity of wisdom and
knowledge. Ganesh Visarjan is also
appraised as the very last ritual performed at the time of Ganesh Chaturthi with utter devotion and gusto. Ardent followers of an elephant-headed God participate in huge
carcades carrying Lord Ganesha idol in
beautified chariots across the country especially at Maharashtra and
Madhya-Pradesh state. Relentless and decorated processions are taken towards
the Arabian Sea to immerse the embellished idols on the final day of the
ten-day-long Ganesha Chaturthi festival.
Auspicious timings for Ganesh Visarjan:
Ganesh Visarjan can be done on the same day of Ganesh Staphana, i.e. Ganesh Chaturthi. However, in most of the places across India, it is for 10 or 11 days and thus falls on the day of Anant Chaturdashi every year, which would be on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
Puja Timings are:
Morning: 09:10 Am - 01:56 Pm
Afternoon: 03 :32 Pm - 05:07 Pm
Evening: 08:07 Pm - 09:32 Pm
Ganesh Visarjan is considered as one of the prominent holy observances just like the installation of Ganesha idol on the first day of Ganesh Chaturthi On this momentous festivity, devotees recite louder 'Ganpati Bappa Morya, pudcha varshi luvkar ya' while performing traditional rituals to pay homage to Lord Ganesha.
Saying Adieu (goodbye) to our most innocent elephant-head God is really tender and difficult. However, saying goodbye does not mean the end, it does say forever. It just means that we will soon meet again on the next Ganesh Chaturthi. We wish, Lord Ganesha takes away all your intense sorrows, troubles and grieve along with him and showers you with immense euphoria and health, and prosperity this year.
