In Hindu scriptures, Chaturthi Tithi belongs to Lord Ganesha, son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. There are two Chaturthi Tithis (fourth day) in each lunar month in the Hindu Calendar, namely Vinayaka Chaturthi and Sankashti Chaturthi. Vinayaka Chaturthi falls after the new moon or Amavasya during Shukla Paksha in a lunar month, while Sankashti Chaturthi falls after the full moon day or Purnima during Krishna Paksha every month. Lord Ganesha signifies prosperity, wisdom and good fortune. He is believed to be the remover of obstacles and also the lord of learning.
