Rules of Ganesh Visarjan

There are no strict rules; usually the Ganesh Visarjan ceremony depends on family tradition. Symbolically, Lord Ganesha visits the home on Ganesh Chaturthi day and it is for the family to decide when they want to give him the farewell.

There are several families that perform the Ganesh Visarjan ceremony on the very next day after Vinayaka Chaturthi. Other dates that are chosen for Ganpati immersion are 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th and the Ananta Chaturdashi day after Ganesh Chaturthi.

Opt For Eco Friendly Immersion

Please make sure that you do not immerse any plastic waste along with the clay Ganesha idol and be proudly part of the eco-friendly Ganesh festival. Use clay idol and immerse only the soluble parts. You can also symbolically sprinkle water on the Ganesh idol. You can also immerse Ganesha in a bucket of water at home and then use it to water plants. If you are using idol of metal, then it can be reused next year.

After puja, the members of the family chant Ganpati Bappa Morya – Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya which basically means to come back soon.
