Sankatahara Chaturthi vratham occurs during the fourth day of the Theypirai or Krishna Paksha, every month. The vrata starts before the sunrise and lasts until moon rise. Sankata (means problems) and Hara (means killing or removing) and therefore Sankata Hara Chadurthi is a day to invoke Lord Ganesh's blessings to remove all problems in life. Sankata Hara Chathurthi vrattam is very auspicious for removing all obstacles in life and to convert your problems into opportunities. Every month, the chadurthi falling after the full moon or Pournami is Sankatahara Chaurthi. When Sankatahara Chadurthi falls on a Tuesday it is considered very auspicious and known as Angaraki Sankatahara Chadurthi. Lord Ganesha Temples conduct special poojas on the day.
Sankata hara Ganesha stotram :
As the name indicates, the SANKATA HARA GANESHA STOTRAM is a very powerful slokam. This sloka is chanted daily for three times to get rid of all the problems. All the problems get destroyed by chanting this stotra of Lord Ganesha. Number 3 is very dear to Lord Ganesha. Hence, it is desirable to chant this thrice if possible.
