Scientific reasons why Ganesh Chaturthi should be celebrated
The destructive and Tama-predominant Yama waves reach the earth in
greater proportion during the 120 days from Ashadha Pournima till Kartik
Pournima. Their intensity is greater during this period. However,
during this period of greater intensity (meaning, from Bhadrapad Shukla
Chaturthi to Bhadrapad Shukla Chaturdashi), Ganesh waves too reach the
earth in greater proportion. This helps reduce the intensity of the Yama
On Shri Ganesh Chaturthi, as also during the days of Ganeshotsav, Ganesh
Principle is a 1000 times more active on the earth. Worship of Shri
Ganesh in this period bestows greater benefits.
