Ganesh Visarjan Puja Vidhi
Anant Chaturdashi is the last day of Ganesh Chaturthi, which comes after 10 days, also known as Visarjan day. Lord Ganesha is welcomed on Ganesh Chaturthi with the same joy and excitement as he is said farewell on the day of immersion. Followers bid farewell to Lord Ganesha with dance and music. Visarjan day is September 9 this year.
On this auspicious day, the idol of Lord Ganesh is bid farewell by immersing himself in water. This is done after transporting the idol through the streets of the neighborhood.
Before immersing Lord Ganesha idol, you should keep in mind that Lord Ganesha idol should be dressed in new clothes. During worship you should tie the modak, silver, durva grass and betel nut in a silken cloth and keep this bundle with the idol of Lord Ganesha. After that, you should worship Lord Ganesha while asking forgiveness for the mistakes made. You must then immerse the idol with all respect and love.
