Sankashti Chaturthi - Lord Ganesha's Auspicious Day

All you all know that Sankashti Chaturthi (संकष्टी चतुर्थी) is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It is celebrated ever month on the fourth day of Krishna Paksha (dark lunar phase or the waning phase). In Tamil Nadu the day is called Sankatahara Chaturthi.

When Sankashti Chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is known as Angaraki Chaturthi (अंगारिका चतुर्थी), which is considered highly auspicious.

Many devotees of Lord Ganesha observe a fast on Sankashti Chaturthi / Angarika Chaturthi for the entire day which is broken after taking darshan of Moon followed by worshiping of Lord Ganesha.
