The specialties and significance of Sankatahara Chathurthi are all well known to us by this time. As we visit some homes, we find Panchmukhi Vinayakar in their puja room and wonder at the significance of this particular form of Vinayakar.
“Panch” means five and Mukhi means faces.
The five faces of Vinayakar face different directions. These five faces are representatives of five kokshas or layers in our subtle anatomy. They are Annamaya, Pranamaya, Manomaya, Vijnanamaya, Anandamaya
So, the Pancha Mukhs of Lord Ganesh symbolize our entire body structure and lead us to Ultimate Bliss in the end.
· Worshipping Panchamukhi Ganapathy will lead one to Anandamaya, the supreme cosmic bliss.
· It will bring all prosperity, health and wealth to a person.
· It removes all obstacles in one’s life.
In which direction we should keep the idol of Panchmukhi Ganesh?
It is good to keep the Panchamukhi Ganesh idol in the North East, West or East directions. Keeping Panchmukhi Ganesh in the East direction is the best one since it removes all obstacles in the house and brings prosperity to the family.
Worship Lord Ganesh on Sankatahara Chathurthi and gain immense prosperity in life.
