Ganapati Puja improves the wisdom and knowledge of the devotees. The other name of Ganesh Chaturthi is Vinayaka Chaturthi (Vināyaka Chaturthī). As per religious talks, people celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi by considering the arrival of Lord Ganesha. It is said that Ganesh had come to earth on that time from Kailash Parvat with his mother Goddess Parvati/Gauri. As per Hindu Mythology, without performing Ganesh Chaturthi, all puja rituals are incomplete. Devotees celebrate this puja in their own way. Some install the clay idol of Ganesha privately in homes, or by making elaborate pandals publicly(temporary stages). People observe it by chanting Vedic hymns and Hindu texts such as prayers and brata (fasting).
After the prayer, priests distributed prasad and sweets like Modaka to all the people present there. Modaka is the favorite sweet of Lord Ganesh so it is widely used. Straight from the starting day, the festival ends on the tenth day. On that day everyone carries the idol in a public procession with music and group chanting. Devotees immerse themselves in a nearby body of water such as a river or sea. Thereafter People dissolve the clay idol and believe that Lord Ganesha will return to Mount Kailash to Parvati and Shiva.
