Ekdanta Sankashti Chaturthi 2022: One of the most revered Hindu deities is Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati. He is known as Vighnaharta or the Obstruction Remover. As a result, worshippers observe a day-long vrat on the Chaturthi Tithi, Krishna Paksha, every month (the fourth day of the waning part of the lunar cycle) from dawn to moonrise, and only break the fast after seeing the moon.

Each Sankashti vrat has its name, which is unusual. Ekadanta Sankashti Ganesh Chaturthi, for example, is observed during Vaishakha, Krishna Paksha (as per the Amavasyant calendar) or Jyeshtha, Krishna Paksha (as per the Purnimant calendar). Devotees honour Lord Ganesha's Chanakra Raja Ekadanta Ganapathi form and the Sri Chakra Peetha on this day.
