History of Lambodara Sankashti Chaturthi

According to mythology, the Devas, who were in distress, sought help from Lord Shiva. However, though Lord Shiva could help the Devas, he delegated the task to one of his two sons – Kartikeya and Ganesha- and asked them who would be willing to take up the job. Notably, both Kartikeya and Ganesha were ready to do it. Ganesha is the beloved deity known as the god of wisdom and good fortune. For ages, devotees have sought the blessings of the Lord to give them the strength to face challenges in life.  Devotees fasting on Lambodara Sankashti Chaturthi observe a day-long fast from sunrise to moonrise. They break their fast and do Parana after seeing the moon. Sakat Chauth 2023 Date and Shubh Muhurat: Know Tithi, Puja Vidhi, Vrat Katha and Significance of Tilkut Chauth Dedicated to Lord Ganesha.
