Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2020 Wishes Images, Quotes, Messages, Status, Photos: Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated every year as the birth of Lord Ganesha. Considered as a symbol of wisdom and good fortune, Lord Ganesha is known to have 108 names. Legend has it that once his mother, Goddess Parvati, had asked Lord Ganesha to guard the entrance while she took bath. However, Lord Shiva came at that very moment and on trying to enter was stopped by Ganesha. This angered Shiva and he severed Ganesha’s head. Seeing this, Goddess Parvati was heartbroken, leading to Shiva instructing his ganas to look for the head of a living creature to replace Ganesha’s severed head. They found a baby elephant’s head and this is how Lord Ganesha came back to life and later was named Ganpati by Lord Shiva.
It is believed that Ganesha was born mid-day, which is why the most opportune time for doing Ganesha Puja is mid-day as per Vedic astrology. This year the celebrations will begin from August 22 onwards.
