Panchamrut, Panchamrit

One story revolves around how Indra was once grounded because a sinner set sight on him while he was flying across King Shurasena’s kingdom. His vahana could start flying again only after he gained the merits of a person who had observed the Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat. In another story, the moon loses his lustre when he becomes egoistic about his good looks and teases Ganesha about his trunk and pot-belly. Thereafter, he regains his lustre by worshipping Lord Ganesha and begging his pardon. There is one more fable about a sinner who went to heaven because she was ill and could not take food on Sankashti Chathurthi day. On feeling better, she had a morsel of food after moonrise. Even though she did this without her knowledge, she still gained the merits of this vratha and was taken to heaven upon her death! Indeed, there are innumerable stories about the greatness of this vratha. So, how should it be observed?

Today is the day of Sankashti Chathurthi. I Cleaned our Devahraa (place where home God idol''s are kept & worshipped everyday). Decorated & Offered the flowers & garlands to lord Ganesha with true & pure heart. Here at TarlaDalal.com very nice information & importance about Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat and the food recipes we can have on account of this Vrat. I liked Sabudhan Khichdi, hence my wife most probably gives me Sabudhana Khichdi in tiffin. My Colleague also enjoyed eating this... Potato Khichdi, Faraali Misal, Faraali Pattice is the other dishes which i liked very much.
