Shri Ganesh Chaturthi is a God Ganesh festival celebrated mainly in Maharashtra. It is celebrated every year on Bhadrapad Shukla Chaturthi. This year we are celebrating it on 19th September 2012 on Wednesday. According to the custom people bring idol of God Ganesh in their house and worship it on the day and till it is in the house. Some people keep this idol of God Ganesh for one and half day, some keep it for five days, some for seven days and some for ten days. All such days pooja, worship and reciting of Stotras and Mantras are performed. The atmosphere in the house becomes so holy, pious and spiritual that everybody feels it. Worship or pooja of God Ganesh is performed in the morning and in the evening. I am uploading God Ganesh Stotra created by God Vishnu for all the devotees. This stotra is a God Ganesh Stotra in Sanskrit, created by God Vishnu. It is from Brahmavaivart Purana, Ganesh Khanda chapter 13 sholaks 40 to 58. God Vishnu said: O! Isha (Ganesh), I want to praise you; you are present since ancient times. However I am unable to praise you as it is beyond my capabilities. Since you are great among all gods, siddhas and masters of yogis; you are beyond desires, you are Ishwar of all, you are present in all forms of life, you are the knowledge, you are visible and invisible, you are forever, you are not destroyable, you are truth, you are the soul, you don’t have any layer like wind, you are witness for everything, you are the navigator for the people to help in this material world, you bless the devotees, you are great among the gods who bless their devotees, you are beyond meditation, you are religion, you are the seed of this material world. Shesh Nag who is having thousand mouths is unable to praise you. God Kartikeya who is having six mouths is also unable to praise you. God Shiva who is having five mouths is also unable to praise you. God Brahma, Goddess Saraswati and I (God Vishnu) are also unable to praise you since lack of proper knowledge. The four Vedas are also unable to praise you properly, then how the people who have knowledge of Vedas can praise you? Then Sureshwar (God Vishnu) after praising God Ganesh as above became speechless in the gathering of all gods. Now Narayan is telling Narad Rushi; O! Narad, the devotee who recites this stotra three times in a day with concentration is blessed by God Ganesh and all his difficulties, troubles are removed from his life. He is ever filled with happiness. The person who recites this stotra while in journey; all his desires are fulfilled by the blessings of God Ganesh. His bad dreams are converted into good dreams. He destroys all his enemies by the blessing of God Ganesh. His wealth goes on increasing. Goddess Laxmi stays in his house for ever. At the end of his life, he goes to Vaikuntha.
