“I am so happy my child that you got up early today. Today, is the auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi when we celebrate the birth of Lord Ganesha,” says Mr. Shanbagh “Dad, what blessings will I get from Lord Ganesha?”, Manish asks excitedly. Mr. Shanbagh replies to his son saying, “Let us pray to Lord Ganesh for blessing you with Intelligence, Knowledge, and Wisdom so that you grow up to become an educated and responsible person!”

People get highly emotional and sentimental about celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi festival in India, particularly Maharashtra. This has been more so, after Lokmanya Tilak, a renowned freedom fighter of the pre-independence India, stood against the British for making this festival a public event. During this festival, Ganpati idols are brought at home and later immersed in water bodies like sea, rivers or lakes. Being looked upon as the transformer of the world, Ganesha has set a benchmark for education that is distinct and superior to all.
The festival signifies the divine qualities of Lord Ganesha of Buddhi (Intelligence), Siddhi (Enlightenment) and Vinayak (who can solve all problems) and inspires us to embody them in our life.
By embodying the divine trait of “Buddhi” that is synonymous with intelligence, one would be able to acquire knowledge, be composed and exercise ones’ creativity and imagination. This helps one develop good habits and high moral standards for one’s success and well-being. The divine trait of “Siddhi” means gaining spiritual power and enlightenment for overcoming the illusion of this mundane world. The divine virtue of ‘Vinayak’ signifies the power to deal with any kind of problems and finding solutions to them. Hence Ganesh Chaturthi emphasizes the value of education, knowledge, and wisdom in one’s life.
Saral Energy recommends you to make the most of this opportunity and help your children or students embody the divine virtues of Lord Ganesha. Using eco-friendly idols made of Clay, papier mache, organic fertilizers or red soil-plant would enhance the flow of cosmic energy in your house, enabling you to be in harmony with nature. Use of colors that are natural for performing prayers, illuminating your home with lamps, offering flowers ‘pushpanjali’ or even lighting up Camphor or ‘kaproor” for performing puja can help to maintain and enhance the sanctity and piety of your homes. In this way, we can harmonize the energy flow and enhance positive energy Ganesh Chaturthi festival could thus become an opportunity for your children or students to embody the divine spirit of Lord Ganesha for intellectual development, acquiring knowledge and gaining wisdom.
