Historicalness of Moon & Ganesha Chaturthi

Lord Ganesha’s birthday is celebrated as Ganesha Chaturthi. This festival is celebrated in the month of Bhadrapada, and to be precise on the fourth day, which is around the months of August and September. One can witness the brightness on that night.

Shakti Parvathi, mother of Lord Ganesha, cooked as many as twenty one different kinds of mouth-watering food items. To add to that, she cooked a lot of sweet-porridge as well. Ganesha feasted on the food so much that his rather huge belly was not sufficient enough to contain it. He went for a night excursion with the little mouse mounted. The little mouse got frightened on seeing a large snake. Ganesha adjusted his belly by putting the huge snake around his belly area.

Suddenly he heard the sounds of someone laughing at him on the sky. He realized that the moon was making mockery of him when he looked up the sky. Ganesha took off one of his two tusks in a fit of rage and threw it at the moon. The moon got itself covered behind the clouds.

Ganesha cursed the moon instantly saying that “I wish that no one on my birthday looks at you. If they do so advertently or inadvertently, everyone in their family and neighborhood will misunderstand them without any reason.”

Moon has a harmful effect on Ganesha’s birthday and will hamper the concentration of man towards God. Ganesha warned the people about the hazards of sighting the moon on his birthday by throwing one of his tusks towards the moon. It is also proved by astrology that the mood of human being is disturbed by the moon on that day.
