Ganesh is the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of beginnings and the remover of all obstacles of both material & spiritual kinds! Every year a puja is performed to Lord Ganesh on Ganesh Chaturthi day, for one and a half days. Decorated Ganesh Idol is brought in to Brahma Kamalam in a procession, having traditionally welcomed by the staff of vaidyagrama on the previous day of Ganesh Chaturthi. Daily three times pujas are conducted and on the third day evening, the idol made of mud is immersed in the pond, with the promise to return next year. This year Ganesh Chaturthi festival falls on Aug 25,2017. Pic Courtesy R Kavitha.
