The Ganesh Visarjan Story, Muhurat and Puja Vidhi Guide
Lord Ganesha is the symbol of the Hindu religion. He is also known as Ganpati Bappa or Gajanand. People enjoy the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi for ten days. They bring Bappa home with a lot of enthusiasm and smiles on their faces. The festival of Lord Ganesha is the start of positive life and helps to achieve happiness in life. But on the last day, the devotees miss their beloved Bappa as it is time to bid Goodbye. They don’t like to let Bappa go on the day of Ganesh Visarjan.
It is tough to forget those memories of Ganesh Utsava and to go for Ganpati Visarjan. People shout out loudly ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya and Pudhchya Varshi Laukariya Ya’. It means Lord Ganesha will come soon next year. The Ganesh Devotees organise grand celebrations and carry out the Visarjan process, dancing and singing bhajans. You may find some teary eyes and sad faces at the Visarjan venue. Devotees miss Bappa till he comes back to their homes next year. Those devotees who couldn’t bring Lord Ganesha murti do Ganesh Puja at home

The Story Behind Ganesh Visarjan
Lord Ganesha’s devotees shout Ganpati Bappa Morya with a lot of energy at the time of Ganesh immersion or Ganesh Visarjan at home. They also recite Ganpati Stotram while doing Ganpati Visarjan at home and outside. People don’t want to miss out on the final glimpse of their beloved Lord Ganesha at the time of Ganesh Ji Visarjan. With all the loud bands and Ganesh Bhajans, devotees reach the place of Visarjan to say good-bye to Lord Ganesha.

Ganesh Visarjan is performed to symbolise the form and life of Lord Ganesha. He was born out of clay, and the Ganesh idols are also made out of clay. Devotees immerse the idol of Lord Ganesha in the water bodies on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. Visarjan is performed so that Lord Ganesha can go back to his home.
Step by Step Guide to Ganesh Visarjan Puja
The Puja Vidhi is a way to bid farewell to the most beloved god of the devotees, Lord Ganesha. People do Lord Ganesha Puja for Ganesh Visarjan by following these steps:
- The Puja starts with Lord Ganesha’s Aarti in the early morning with the entire family and relatives present.
- Devotees use Modak, a home-cooked sweet for the Prasad and offer flowers to Lord Ganesha.
- Later on, after the Aarti, people march towards the Visarjan venue and pick up Lord Ganesha’s idol.
- Make sure that while taking up the idol, first move it towards yourself. It signifies that the Visarjan time has come and Bappa has to mark the end of the 10-day festival.
- Pray to Lord Ganesha and express gratitude towards him as he stayed at your home and solved all your worries and problems.
- Take some Akshat (rice without oil) and offer it to Lord Ganesha. Also, put some Dahi on his hands for Good luck.
- While Lord Ganesha departs on the day of Visarjan, people tie a red cloth along with coconut, jaggery and grains in it. This is the meal that’ll satisfy Lord Ganesha’s hunger during the long trip back home.
- Water is sprinkled on the person who performs the Puja Vidhi for Ganapati Visarjan.
- Give a final tour of your home to Lord Ganesha before going on the day of Visarjan. It means his grace and blessing are always there with you.
- Recite mantras and Ganpati Bappa Morya to add more energy.
- Go out of your house with Lord Ganesha’s idol and ask another person to hold a coconut, then offer it to the Ganpati Bappa and break it in one go.
- Later, immerse the Coconut with Bappa.
- Do Ganesh Aarti for one last time at the Visarjan venue.
- Remove the decoration from Lord Ganesha’s idol and dispose of it properly and do Ganesh Visarjan in the water body.
At the end of the Puja Vidhi for Ganesh Visarjan, you can immerse the Puja Kalash and other things with it.
Many people worship Ganpati Bappa in the country and outside as well. They don’t like Visarjan and miss Bappa. So they take home the soil of Visarjan ground and coconut with Kalash wrap it in red cloth. Taking these things at home means Bappa will come home next year again. May Lord Ganesha bless you with all the success and abundance in life.
