Shodasha Ganapathi means sixteen Ganapathi forms corresponding to 16 tithis of a lunar calendar. Tithi is based on the relationship between the Moon and the Sun. Both the growing and disappearing phases of the moon have 15 tithis that follow the Full Moon and New Moon days.
Lord Ganapathi’s energies are closest to the material plane and he is the most benevolent god that we can reach out to in the Kali Yuga. He removes all impediments with great knowledge and understanding of people’s problems and helps them at the right time. With his supreme blessings, a bad day can be transformed into a good one.
The auspicious year of Vikarama is favorable to invoke the supreme deity Ganesh or Ganapathi and his powerful tithi forms called Shodasha Ganapathi. This is a rare Homam that will be performed on Vakrathunda Sankashti Chaturthi, a day that shatters unending obstacles that prevent your achievements both personal and official. It is one of the 13 Sankashti days celebrated every year and observed on the fourth day of Full Moon during Krishna paksha in Magha month. It also gives a boost to business ventures, promotion, solves marriage and other family problems. This is also the time to correct your financial challenges like losses in business, fund shortages, misuse of income, etc. The Shodasha Ganapathi Homam is the best method to correct all money-related crises.
The verses of Ganapathi Shodasha Nama Stotram say that,
“Shodashaithani Namani Yah Patehcharanu Yadapi,
Vidhyarambhe Vivahe Cha Praveshe Nirgame Thatha,
Sangrame Sarva Karyeshu Vighna Sthasya Na Jaayathe,”
which means that those who worship on the 16 names of Lord Ganapathi before the start of any auspicious program related to education, marriage or journey, or battle, will be victorious and all obstacles they face will be destroyed.
