 Varasiddhi Vinayaka Vrata :

 FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
 Shree Gurubhyo NamahaPS: This is just a document to clear some normal doubts of common people. The idea is toguide and orient themselves more towards aachara, vichaara, sampradaaya and Bhakti andnot to get carried away in this fast pace of life… like eat outs, bringing food from outside,cassette poojas etc., as far as possible to save our own tradition and boost the self confidence of performing people. This document does not claim itself to be complete in allaspects. (I am a Smartha – Mulakanaadu Brahmin – so my details will be as per ourpaddathi…. ) paddathi varies from region to region and particular sector of the caste also….Pl. consult elders for all these details…..

What is the direction to sit for Pooja
Sadhaka Facing East or North.
What is the direction to keep the Ganesha
Towards East – First choice or North- 2
choice or any direction that means,actually there is no mistake in keeping god facing any direction. But somepeople say, if you want uttarottara Abhivriddhi (that means developmentin all fronts) then keep God in Uttara. If you want Moksha ..then East. Bestthing is to follow as per elders say at Home. Do not get bothered on whichdirection the god should be facing…. But do pooja with utmost devotionand concentration. But I feel, Keep God in such a direction, that some guestcomes home, he is able to have god darshan. This gives a good feeling tothe guest.
What are the options on types of Ganesha that can be kept for Pooja
Rajatha (silver), Mrinmaya(Mud/clay)(more than 99% people fall in thiscategory) or traditional Ganesha idol which is carried over by our ancestor
 Ganesh,(this idol will not be immersed as the same is used for next yearand so -on.)
What is the main Nivedya for Ganapathia.
Modaka (sihi kadabu or kari gadabu or oil/Ghee fried kadabu normally donewith FriedGram kobbari(copra), sakkare(sugar),kaayi-kadabu (21 nos). Youcan also keep Maha Nivedya provided food is prepared at home (I meannot catering food). For Maha Nivedya use two Banana leaves with Agra.
Why is this Vrata called Varasiddhi Vinaayaka Vratha
As per vrata kathe, this Vrata is followed by doing Ganesha pooja withimagination of Ganesha giving us all types of vara(our wishes(Varas)) whatever we ask(wish) for (Vara) the same will be fulfilled instantly that is whyhe is varasiddhi Vinaayaka…. He is the one who fulfills any of ourwishes…..removes all obstacles (viGna nivaaraka)
How to decorate the Ganapathi
Your own Imagination. There is no hard and fast rule for this. But followsafety while you are putting serial set lighting etc., use well insulatedelectrical stuff. But I would like to add that try to keep Ganesha in aMantapa on a comfortable height. Astadala padma rangoli is important.Elders put special rangolis traditional rangolis… pl. follow the same. Keepdoorva Ganapathi also (that is Pillari ganapathi made of cow dung anddoorva for pooja. First pooja for this pillari only.
What are the pooja Items required for Ganapathi Pooja
Hoova (kanagale hoova, Arka Pushpa(yekkada hoova), shyamanthige,mallige, kaakada, sungandharaja, Rose) etc. , pancha Phala (5 type fruits2nos. each) Hannu (chepekayi (Gauva Fruit), Mango, Moosambi, Sapota(cheeku), Apple etc., (pl. avoid papaya, watermelon, butter fruit). agarbatti,karpoora, viledele, adike, dakshine(Rs.2,5,10.coins), halagaarathi,deepagalu, panchapatre, uddharane, arghyapaatre, bidichaape, arishina,kumkuma, Chandra, Rakta Gandha (red sandal paste), akshate(red), gejje-vastra (soaked in kumkuma), aarathi deepagalu, kaddi bathi(soaked inGhee), hooobathi, garike, patregalu ( Garike, Bilwa, dawana, maruga etc.,),hoovina haaragalu, panchamrita (Cow milk, (hasihaalu Fresh with outboiling), Cow curds, Cow ghee, honey, sugar, coconut water –all put in a
