Farewell to Sai Ganesha

Nobody warms the hearts of devotees like Lord Ganesha, who is worshipped before the start of any enterprise, domestic or professional.

Ganesh Chaturthi is an occasion or a day on which Lord Ganesha makes his presence on earth for all his devotees. It is also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi in Sanskrit, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. The festival is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shukla chaturthi (fourth day of the waxing moon period).

Devotees from all over Mumbai thronged to Dharmakshetra to bid adieu to Sai Ganapati amidst chanting of "Ganapati Bappa Moriya".

The Prayer Hall in Dharmakshetra was decorated quite simply but aesthetically for Ganesh Chaturthi.

In Dharmakshetra the Ganesha Puja was held for five days. Various samithis from all over Mumbai took part in the bhajans which were held from 5.30 to 6.15 pm. Various artists were also invited to perform thereby evincing a keen interest amongst the devotees who had gathered in large numbers daily from 27th August, 2006 to 31st August, 2006.

Ganpati Bappa Morya (Farewell O Lord Ganpati!)
Gheema ladu choriya (Who avails laddoos soaked in ghee)
Pudcha varsi laukariya (Return in haste next year)
Bapa Moriya re, Bapa Moriya re (O Lord farewell, O Lord farewell...)
