Sankashti in Sanskrit means deliverance, and it refers to redemption from hurdles, problems, and agonies in life. Lord Ganesha worshipped on this day is Chanakra Raja Ekadanta Maha Ganpati. As Gajanana Sankashti Chaturthi falls in the holy month of Sawan, part of the Chaturmas, it is believed to be even more auspicious.
It is said that fasting on this day and praying to the Lord not only removes various obstacles in life but also blesses devotees with happiness, success, and good health.
