Shri ganesh Chaturthi 2022| vidhi for puja and vrat katha
Shri Ganesh Chaturthi Vrat Katha - A legend is in vogue about Shri Ganesh Chaturthi fasting. According to the legend, once Lord Shankar and Mata Parvati were sitting near the river Narmada. There Goddess Parvati asked Lord Bholenath to play Chopad to pass the time. Lord Shankar got ready to play Chopad. But who will decide whether to win or lose in this game?
The question arose, in response to this, Lord Bholenath collected some straws and made an effigy of it, consecrated the life of that effigy. And told the effigy that son, we want to play Chopad. But there is no one to decide our victory or defeat. That's why you tell who among us lost and who won.
After saying this, the game of Chopad started. The game was played thrice, and incidentally Parvati ji won all three times. At the end of the game, the boy was asked to decide whether to win or lose, then the boy told Mahadev the winner. Mother Parvati got furious after hearing this. And in anger, he cursed the child to be lame and lying in the mud. The child apologized to the mother and said that I did this due to ignorance, I did not do this out of any malice. On asking for forgiveness from the child, the mother said, "Nag girls will come here to worship Ganesha, according to them, you fast Ganesha, by doing this you will get me, saying that the mother went to Mount Kailash with Lord Shiva.
Exactly a year later, Nag girls came to that place. After knowing the method of fasting of Shri Ganesha from the snake girls, that child observed Ganesha's fast for 21 consecutive days. Seeing his faith, Ganesh ji was pleased. And Shri Ganesh asked the boy to ask for the desired fruit. The child has said that Vinayak, give me so much strength, that I can walk on my feet and reach Mount Kailash with my parents and they should be happy to see this.
Give this boon to the child, Shri Ganesh disappeared. After this the child reached Mount Kailash. And he narrated the story of reaching his Kailash mountain to Lord Mahadev. From that day onwards Parvati turned away from Shiva. Lord Shankar also observed the fast of Shri Ganesha for 21 days as per the instructions of the child. Due to this effect, there was resentment in the mind of the mother for Lord Bholenath. She ended.
Lord Shankar told this fasting method to Mother Parvati. Hearing this, the desire of Mother Parvati to meet her son Kartikeya also awakened in her mind. Mother also fasted Shri Ganesh for 21 days and worshiped Shri Ganesh ji with Durva, flowers and laddoos. On the 21st day of the fast, Kartikeya himself should meet Parvati. From that day onwards, the fast of Shri Ganesh Chaturthi is considered as a wish fulfilling fast.
