Ganesh Chaturthi 2020: It is that time of the year when devotees welcome Lord Ganpati home with utmost devotion and gusto. This year Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated on August 22, Saturday. It is believed that Bappa visits the abode of his devotees, stays there for a while and blesses them before taking leave but only with a promise to return the next year. The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated across the globe and majorly in Maharashtra.
The 10-day long festival will be celebrated this year with precautions as deadly novel coronavirus outbreak has affected the normal functioning. Social distancing, wearing masks and gloves is the norm of the day, today.
Devotees turn hosts to the Lord by inviting him to their homes. The freshness in the breeze and the picture-perfect weather strikes a perfect balance between mind, body, and soul. In order to please the Ganpati, and make him visit your abode year-on-year, we tell you how to perform the special ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ puja (prayer) at home.
