About OGSS

Coming up event..

Full Day Programme

All the devotees can participate in all the sevas on “first come first serve” basis


Event starts with Sri Ganesh Prana Prathista, refers to the rite or ceremony by which a murti is consecrated, wherein hymns and mantra are recited to invite the deity to be resident guest, and the murthi’s eyes are opened for the first time.


Sri Ganeshji is the bestower of intellect. Among the seven Kundalini chakras in the human body, the seat of Sri Ganeshji is inthe Muladhar chakra. Sri Ganeshji is the bestower of happiness. He has theability to destroy the negative energies in the Universe. Hence, He is also called the Destroyer of Distress (‘Dukhahaharta’). All the doubts are destroyed by His grace. With His grace, a person’s intellect becomes stable and the mind calm.
Many devotees perform the vrat of the benevolent Sri Ganeshji with the spiritual emotion of faith. The vrat that is performed on Sri Ganesh Chaturthi is also called ‘Siddhivinayak vrat’


Performing Ganesh Aarti is an important aspect of Ganesh Chaturthi. However there are many Hindus who perform Ganesh and other Aartis regularly. Ganesh Aarti is also recited before beginning any major task by Hindus. Reciting Ganesh Aartis create positive vibrations in house as well as in the body of those who are performing it.

According to Hindu mythology one who performs or recites Ganesh Aarti gets the blessings of Lord Ganesh. The soul is enlightened after performing such holy Aarti. If you read on you will be able to perform systematic Ganesh Aarti.


The Ganesh Nimajjan commences with the Uttarang Pooja that involves five elements which may include Deep (oil lamps), Gandh (fragrance), Naivedya (food), Dhoop (incense) and Pushp (flowers). Before leaving the house, one of the devotees should pick and move the idol about one inch forward; this is to signify that the devotees will take him for visarjan.

All the devotees shower Akshat on the deity and rest a spoonful of curd on his outstretched palm with a wish for him to visit their venue again.

Take a red cloth and put dry coconut on it and stuff it with jaggery and five different grains and tie a knot. Now tie the cloth around Lord Ganesh’s hand. This signifies the food prepared for his journey.

The idol is then led to the place of immersion with continuous chanting of ‘Ganpati Bappa Moriya’. The idol is then immersed and for one last time devotees pray for his safe journey and his blessings for the year ahead.

One of the primary reasons why Oxford Ganesh Seva Samiti was founded was to ensure our children had something to carry on our culture and tradition. 


In many cases, Indians or Hindus outside India tend to view festivals as more of cultural/social events than religious / spiritual ones. They are seen as an opportunity to getting in touch with the local Indian community in an effort to re-live the social customs from back “home” in India.
