Ganesha Chaturthi is a very auspicious day in the Hindu calendar. He is one of the most loved Hindu Godheads. After all, He is Ganapati – the Lord of Knowledge, Vighnaharta – the remover of difficulties and Mangalmoorti – the epitome of all that is auspicious. No wonder, He is the first one to be worshipped and invoked in any and every Hindu Pooja and ceremony.
Not only are the eleven days of Ganesh Chaturthi a very propitious period for worship; one can also perform astrological remedies to propitiate malefic effects of planets or to solve problems one faces in day to day existence.
So, here are some of the suggestions and remedies which can be followed during the Eleven days:
In case your career is not stable or if you are facing problems at your place of work, then bring an energized Ashwagandha root or energize it yourself by changing Ganesha Sahastranaam. After energizing it, tie it in a grey coloured thread and wear it around the neck. This can be done on the Ganesh Chaturthi day.
Those who are burdened by heavy debts and are not able to repay them may follow this remedy. Install a crystal Ganesh, bathe it with milk daily. Besides, offer ‘durva’ grass mala and pray to it to relieve you of your debt problem.
If your married life is troubled with stress and conflicts, Ganesha Chaturthi is the right time to resolve your problems. Offer 21 ‘Durva’ grass having 5 blades each to Ganapati – two at a time for the first ten times and finally a single one. Furthermore, also chant the following mantra:
“Aum Ekadantaya Vidmahe Vakratundaya Dhimahi | Tanno Danti Prachodayaat”
Now, this is especially for students. If you lack concentration in studies, chant the mantra “Aum Vighneshwaraaye Namaha”. Recite at least 108 times all eleven days. Thereafter, you can continue 21 days daily. Besides, you may also chant the mantra ‘Aum Gam Ganapataaye Namaha’ to enhance your memory. Say it aloud and feel the vibration.
Are you undergoing Ketu Mahadasha, Antardasha or are suffering due to malefic Ketu transit or placement in your horoscope? Firstly, you should smear a Shwetarka Ganesh completely with a paste of turmeric powder and water. Then establish it in your place of worship. Thereafter, chant the mantra “Aum Vakratrundaaya Hum, Om Shree Ganeshaaya Namah” 108 times.
KAAL SARPA DOSHA:
This remedy is for those suffering from the malefic effects of Kaal Sarpa Dosha. Undoubtedly, they should offer Bundi Laddoos to Ganapati and chant the mantra “Aum Ganpataaye Namaha” daily 108 times starting from the Chaturthi day.
If you are affected by Mangal Dosha and are facing problems due to it, then this is the remedy for you. Install an orange-coloured (Kesari) Ganesha in your place of worship and venerate it daily. Moreover, you can chant the mantra: “Aum Shri Ganeshaaye Namaha” 21/51/108 times daily.
In case, someone in the family is ill for a long time, offer janeu to Ganesha on the Chaturthi day and the next day gives it to the sick person to wear on his person. Surely, he shall be healed quickly.
TROUBLED BY ENEMIES:
Chanting the mantra “Aum Gam Ganpataaye Namaha Shatroah Ucchatanam Kuru Kuru Swaha” 108 times daily for eleven days will stop an enemy or conspirator from disturbing you.
If you are a quick-tempered person and get angry very easily, then worship the Lambodar Ganesha with RED flowers.
Many people install a Ganesha idol at the entrance of the house above the door. It is advisable to install a Ganesha yantra instead of a murti or idol.
