How we celebrate Vinayagar Chathurthi at home:
The Ganesh Chathurthi celebration starts 2 days before, that is if August 30th is Ganesh Chaturthi means we start doing the preparation on August 29th. we clean the pooja room, and pooja items, and get ready for the celebration. The day before(august 28th) is Gowri Pooja/Parvathi Pooja(mother of Ganesha). We First Do pooja for Gowri a day before Vinayagar Chathurthi. Gowri Pooja Amma does very simple prasadham like steamed raw rice+dal+ghee and a dessert like some payasam! On these 3 days completely no onion no garlic! She makes Gowri Face(Amman’s face) in turmeric and prays that is all about Gowri Pooja. The next day Morning again we change the old flowers of the previous day’s pooja and put kolam. On the auspicious time, we bring in the clay vinayagar from shop to Home. We do Abishegam with Milk, curd, honey, etc., and then we decorate him nicely with new clothes and malai. We make Kozhukattai Sweet and Savoury, Modakam, Sundal, Vadai, and chant 108 names of vinayagar(click the link to chant). Then we do arati and end the pooja! We keep the Clay Vinayagar at Home for 3 days with 3 days neivedyam and then drop him in the river. Being a NRI it is tough to do with Clay Vinayagar. I have a small Vinayagar idol, I do pooja for that and rest all the procedures I follow!
