Ganesh Jayanti will be celebrated on January 25. Ganesh Jayanti literally “Ganesha’s birthday”, also known as Magha shukla chaturthi, Tilkund chaturthi, and Varad chaturthi, is a Hindu festival. This occasion celebrates the birth day of Ganesha, the lord of wisdom. Today we are celebrating Ganesh Jayanti, the birthday of Vighneshwara. Who is He? What is His greatness? What has He taught to the world? We celebrate the jayanti but do not make any effort to understand the tattva (principle) behind it.
