As mentioned in the Vedas and Agamas, Sri Ganesha worship is one of the oldest forms of religious practice in Hinduism. Lord Ganesha is a manifestation of the Supreme Reality, for the protection of the pious and destruction of the evil in the forms of many asuras. He represents the Pranava Manthra Om and is called Pranava Swaroopa. He is also called Jyeshta Rajan and Brahmanaspathi which means prime king of the universe and god of creation. Sri Ganesha is worshipped especially before the beginning of all actions including any new ritual and prayer services to remove obstacles and protect devotees in the performance of all their activities. Also, while some Hindus consider Lord Ganesha or Sri Vinayagar simply an embodiment or symbol of philosophic or spiritual truths, others consider him as real and existing.
Hinduism accepts both streams of thought. It is believed that Sri Ganesha exists in a greater world than ours from where He guides our destinies. There are several days in the month, according to the Phase of the moon or star position, which are important for each of the Deities we worship. The fourth day after the full moon day [Krishna Paksha] is called Sankatahara Chathurthi day and is auspicious for special pooja for Sri Ganesha.
