About Gauri Puja

During the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, during which we celebrate Lord Ganesha's birthday, another deity that is worshipped, is the goddess Gauri. 

Goddess Gauri is Lord Ganesha's mother. Before marriage, Her name was Parvati. She was eager to marry Lord Shiva, but her father did not regard Lord Shiva as an eligible husband for her due to his living like a medicant in the Himalayas. Nevertheless, Gauri set out to woo Lord Shiva and performed tremendous tapasya (penance), and eventually was successful in winning the heart of Lord Shiva.

Goddess Gauri is considered to be one of the many forms of Shakti, the Mother of the universe. She primarily symbolizes fertility, motherhood, and victory of good over the evil.
