Do you ever wonder why do we start any auspicious work with a prayer of Lord Ganesh? Lord Ganesh symbolizes wisdom, fortune, triumph, and prosperity. The birthday of Lord Ganesh is celebrated with exhilaration and excitement all across India. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the biggest festivals celebrated with ecstasy&glee in India. We commemorate his blimey with great enthusiasm. This is an 11-days long festival celebrated to honor the Vighnaharta. On the first day of which people bring the Ganapati idol at home and worship the God with Aarti and Puja and on the tenth day of which is Anant Chaturdashi, there is a Visarjan of Ganapati idol. The temples are all decked up and the Ganapati idols are adorned well with jewelry and other accessories as well. You can adore your loved ones with the Ganesh Chaturthi jewelry gifts and can show them what special hold they have in your life. Although there are indefinite things to learn from Lord Ganesh, we’ve laid out a few qualities he possessed which made him stand out the rest.
1. LISTEN BEFORE SPEAKING
Land an ear to every detail. Listening makes us humble and we develop to accept other’s opinions. Before the ritual of immersing the idol, it is believed that the devotees share their inner-most desires with Lord Ganesha. He helps resolve or fulfill them. As the elephant god, Lord Ganapati has large ears. He uses them to listen keenly to his devotees.
2. LEARNING IS GROWING
You must have noticed it that Lord Ganesha is always accompanied by Ma Lakshmi on his right and Ma Saraswati on the left. He is the lord of wisdom, while Ma Saraswati and Ma Lakshmi are goddesses of knowledge and wealth. This indicates that without knowledge and wisdom, wealth is impossible to achieve. If one stops learning, he/she stops growing.
3. UNITY IN DIVERSITY
Festivals are always believed to bring people together. Ganesh Chaturthi is no different. Everyone and anyone is allowed to attend the festivities and share the delight. There is no distinction between young, old, rich or poor. Color is thrown at all during the Visarjan celebrations; it is believed to be done to make everyone look alike and coming over their differences.
Lord Ganesha idols are often clubbed with enchanting OM. This is religiously believed to bring peace and calm to you in your personal life. Beliefs make us who we are. Look for opportunities and positivity in every situation, which will make you go through it certainly.
5. PARENTS COME FIRST
We have all heard about Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesh, and Ma Parvathi’s story. Little Ganesha was determined to fulfill his duty. We should love our family members and friends and they should always be at the top of our priorities. We should not leave a chance to make them feel how special they are to us.
6. HEALING POWER OF KINDNESS
Holding grudges have never been proved any good to anyone. In our Hindu Mythology, once Lord Ganesha overate because he didn’t want to hurt anyone. Having that kindness inside of you is vital and makes you a better person.
7. RESPECT OTHER CREATURES
Just because someone is different from you, doesn’t mean that you will treat him/her any differently. Lord Ganesha had the mouse as his vaahan. Discrimination shouldn’t be done. Everyone deserves love and respect. You’re worthy of it.
8. BALANCING MATERIALISM
Lord Ganesha never underestimated the value of a fine balance. You must have noticed it that Lord Ganesha has one foot touching the ground and the other one folded and balancing him. This indicates that materialism shouldn’t change who you are as a person while remaining grounded. Balancing these two aspects lead to you having a smooth and happy life.
