Ganapathi Homam is a ritual dedicated to Lord Ganesha, performed to seek his blessings and achieve success before imparting on any venture. As per Hinduism, the grace of Lord Ganesha can remove obstacles in life and fulfill any task.
The Elephant-faced God, Lord Ganesha is the Supreme Being who removes obstacles from ones plan or a venture in life. He is Vighnaraja or Vignaharta by many of his devotees. Also, he is important for his Siddhi (success), Buddhi (wisdom and intelligence) and Riddhi (prosperity). He is the first one that the devotees honour among all Gods in most of the worship rituals and services. The God is also famous as the God or Patron of Arts and Sciences.

  • People seeking success at the start of any business, work life, student life, marriage, Housewarming (Grah Pravesh) and even Naming ceremonies (Naamkaran).
  • People who are specifically affected by Kethu Dosha. Lord Ganesha is the planetary overlord of Kethu. Hence, one should perform the Ganapathi Homam to please Lord Ganesha and to remove the malefic effects of the Dosha.

  • One can achieve prosperity, health and a happy domestic life by worshiping Ganesha once a year by conducting the Homam.
