Ganesha Jayanti

Ganesha Jayanti festival marks the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha, the eldest son of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. This is one of the most exciting festivals ardently celebrated by the devotees. Ganesha has an elephant face and a pot belly and is said to be easily pleased with little acts of devotion. Hence Ganesha has a large following. Some of the other names of Ganesha are Vignesh, Vighnaraja, Ganapati, Herambha, Ekadhanta, Gajanan and others. In India, every village has at least one temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha, which attests the popularity of Ganesha worship in the country.

Ganesha Jayanti and Ganesh Chaturthi

To know about Ganesha Jayanti, it is important to know the difference between Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesha Jayanti. Ganesh Chaturthi falls in the month of Bhadrapada (August – September). Most commonly, this day is considered the birth anniversary of Ganesha across most states of India. Ganesha Jayanti as the birth anniversary of Ganesha is not so popular in many states. Observed in the month of Magha (January – February), Ganesha Jayanti is celebrated only in Maharashtra and coastal regions of the Konkan region. Similar to Ganesh Chaturthi, the day of Ganesha Jayanti falls on Shukla Chaturthi (fourth day of the waxing half of lunar month) during the Magha month.

What is done on Ganesha Jayanti

Notably, Ganesha Chaturthi is the most famous festival dedicated to worshipping and celebrating the form of Ganesha even in Maharashtra. Nevertheless, according to Maharashtrians, Ganesh Chaturthi is not the birth anniversary of Ganesha and it is only Ganesha Jayanti in the month of Magha that is deemed as his birthday. The other names of Ganesha Jayanti are Tilkund Chaturthi, Magha Shukla Chaturthi, and Varad Chaturthi.
