Spiritual And Scientific Reason Of Ganesha Visharjan
However, the other version of the story says that, during this festival the idol of the Lord Ganesha has been made from the soil of the nearest rivers, ponds and tanks for the purpose of fresh water restoration in that by digging out the clay or soil from it. They use that soil for idol making of the deity and after worshipping the idol during the festival immerse at the same place. The various herbal elements used while worshiping the idol such as turmeric and many other herbal materials has also been immersed in the water, which acts as a helping agent for the sea living such as fish or tortoise to grow.
Ganesha festival is not celebrated as spiritual or Hindu ritual it also serves the cause of environmental protection.
