Ganpati Sthapana Puja is one of the most important and foremost ritual of every Puja, Yagna or any auspicious task undertaken. Call him Ganpati, or refer to him as Vinayaka, pray to him as Vighneshwara or worship the Lambodara; they are few of many different names that Lord Ganesha is known by. Lord Shiva had a warrior clan, which was collectively known as Ganas and Ganpati was the ‘Ishta’, i.e; The Head of the warrior clan. Hence he was bestowed with the name Ganesha!
Lord Ganesha is one of the most ardently worshipped deities across the world. But most importantly, he is the Pratham Pujya i.e. the first one to be worshipped during any Puja or auspicious occasion.
As the story goes, Lord Shiva in anger, beheaded Ganpati. After this, Lord Brahma granted a boon that Ganesh Puja will be performed before every puja.
Hence every auspicious or purification Vidhi requires the worship of Lord Ganesh right at the start
At the same time, Ganapati Visarjan Vidhi teaches us the very important concept of Samsaara i.e. the cycle of birth, death rebirth,and that after death, every living being becomes one with nature again, through its five elements, and is reincarnated in another form.
Ganesh Visarjan marks the end of Ganesh Chaturthi and falls on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. The Ganesh Chaturthi commences with the Ganesh Sthapana and ends with Visarjan on the fifth, seventh or the last day.
