During the period of Ganesh Festival stop evils from entering into the festival and do maximum chanting of 'Om Gan Ganapataye Namah' to get real benefit of the festival. Hindu festivals are not just for social gathering but for faster spiritual progress (to gain the grace of the Lord) !

Anything which is in consonance with the scriptures proves to be ideal and beneficial. If the idol of Shri Ganesh is sculpted as per the science behind the idol then those worshipping it are benefited. Unfortunately today, idols are worshipped in various forms and shapes based on one's liking and imagination without taking into account the science behind the idol. This is resulting in the denigration of Shri Ganesh.
