The Sankatahara Chaturthi is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It is celebrated every month on the fourth day (Chathurthi) after the full moon (Krishna Paksha) according to the Hindu calendar. Sankatahara means- Sankata (problems) and hara (removing). Thus, observing this vratam or puja is believed to reduce all the problems in a person's life because Lord Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles and problems. To invoke Lord Ganesha’s blessings, devotees observe a strict fast on the day of Sankatahara Chaturthi and break the fast only at night after Sri Ganesh puja & viewing the moon (Chandra Darshan).
