Ganesh Chaturthi is a celebration in honor of Lord Ganesh. Also popularly known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, the elephant-headed son of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva, is the remover of obstacles and known for his wisdom. Ganapati is invoked first at religious and spiritual functions and worshiped before starting any worldly activities.

With the beloved blessings of Parama Pujya Sri Swamiji, the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple held its first Ganesh Chaturthi puja in the newly inaugurated temple trailer - a great way to mark this historical day for the temple! Sri Maha Ganpati puja was performed under the direction of Sriram Cheruvu, who served as the priest with assistance from Hari Madiraju, and was commenced by the chanting of sankalpam, lead by Pavani Thakkar. The lucky sponsors, Aparna and Srinivas Gangasani, were able to perform the puja on behalf of all the devotees present.

Everyone listened attentively to the Ganesh Chaturthi Katha iterated with devotion by Pavani Thakkar and joined in the bhajan session comprised of numerous Ganapati bhajans composed by Sri Swamiji. The surprise of the evening was the guest appearance by Ganesha, Dattatreya, Hanuman and Sri Swamiji, who were really our BalaDatta kids in costume, which delighted everyone. The celebrations were concluded with Mangalam & Kakada Aarti followed by a blessed and delicious Maha Prasadam.
