Ganesh Chaturthi 2021: Why Modak is favorite of Ganpati, know what is the belief!

According to the Hindu calendar, the month of Bhadrapada is going on. 
In this month people wait for Ganesh festival. This festival starts from the Chaturthi Tithi of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month and continues till Anant Chaturdashi. During this, the devotees of Lord Ganesha bring his idol to the house with pomp. After establishing them, they serve Ganpati, offer dry fruits, sweets and their favorite bhog.

This time Ganesh Utsav is going to start from 10th September and will continue till 19th September. On this occasion people bring Ganpati at home for 5, 7 or 9 days. Ganesh festival is celebrated the most in Maharashtra. There people definitely offer Modak to Ganpati. Modak is made from coconut and ghee. It is believed that Modak is very dear to Ganapati. Know what is the reason behind this belief.

first story

Many things are popular about Ganesh ji being dear to Modak. According to the first story, once Lord Shiva was sleeping and Ganesh ji was guarding the door. When Parashuram reached there, Ganesh ji stopped Parashuram. Parashurama got angry on this and started fighting with Ganesha. When Parashurama started getting defeated, he attacked Ganesh ji with the parashu given by Shiva. Due to this, a tooth of Ganesh ji was broken. Due to broken teeth, he felt a lot of pain and started having trouble eating and drinking. Then modaks were prepared for them as modaks are very soft. Eating modak filled his stomach and he was very happy. Since then modak has become the favorite dish of Ganpati. It is believed that whoever offers him modak, Ganapati is very pleased with him.

Another story about Modak is that of Ganesha and Mata Anusuiya. It is said that once Ganapati went to Anusuiya's house with Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. At that time, all three Ganapati, Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati were very hungry. Mother Anusuiya thought that first I would feed Ganesh ji, after that I would feed Mahadev and Mata Parvati. When Mata Anusuiya started feeding Ganapati, he continued to eat for a long time. But his hunger was not taking the name of being pacified. Then Mother Anusuiya thought that feeding something sweet might quench her hunger. In such a situation, Mother Anusuiya brought a piece of sweets for Ganapati. As soon as he ate it, Ganesh ji's stomach was full and he burped loudly. At the same time, Bholenath also burped loudly 21 times and said that his stomach was full. Later Goddess Parvati asked Anusriya the name of that sweet. So Mata Anusuiya told that it is called Modak. Since then modak is considered to be the favorite dish of Ganapati and the tradition of offering modak to Lord Ganesha started. It is believed that if 21 modaks are offered to Lord Ganesha, then all the gods get filled with them. With this, the blessings of Ganapati and all other deities are obtained.
