Midrand Hindu Dharma Sabha celebrated Shree Ganesh Chaturthi a spectacular festival, honoring the birth of Lord Ganesha, on 29 August 2014.
Lord Ganesha - the Hindu deity in a human form but with the head of an elephant - represents the power of the Supreme Being that removes obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors.
For this reason, Hindus worship Ganesha first before beginning any religious, spiritual or worldly activity.
In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha is the first son of Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati.
The date of Ganesh Chaturthi falls on the fourth day after the new moon in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada. This is August or September each year.
