Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja vidhi procedure 2016 in Tamil

The auspicious day of Pillayar Chaturthi or Ganesh Chaturthi is tomorrow, Monday - on 05 September 2016.  The full ganapathi pooja vidhi or pillayar chaturthi puja procedure for 2016 has been prepared and uploaded as a PDF file, which can be downloaded for free.

The auspicious time for the puja on Monday, 05 Sep 2016 for pillayar chaturthi or vinayaka chaturthi is between 09:00 – 10:00 IST.  The complete Ganesh Chaturthi pooja vidhi - procedure in Tamil is for people who are away from home, in other states of India or overseas and cannot get a priest.

The Pillayar Chaturthi pooja vidhi - procedure is full and complete - from achamanam till samarpanam.  I only request anyone who reads it and uses it to avoid using flowers and decorations made of paper, plastic and paints.  Please use only original flowers, fruits and clay as done in old times.

I urge everyone to use only Ganesh idols made of pure clay, without any paints – even that of golden hue – and use only natural flowers, and avoid any flowers, decorations or anything else made of paper, plastic or paints for this vinayaka chaturthi.

For more reference:
  • here is the video of how to make a clay Ganesha or Pillayar at home by yourself.
  • some pointers on how to perform a satisfactory pillayar chaturthi or vinayaka chaturthi pooja
  • names in Sanskrit, Tamil, Botanical and common names of 21 leaves and 21 flowers for ganesh puja
BTW you may have come across many Pooja Procedures, but how many give you the relevant meanings like the screenshot?  Before today, did you understand that when you chant ‘avahito bava’, you were requesting the Lord to appear?  You only get these information here, so please say thanks in comments.
