Eka-Vinshati Name Puja of Lord Ganesh | 21 Patra Puja of Lord Ganesha


Ganesha 21 Names Puja

Lord Ganesha Eka Vimshati Name Puja

During Ganesh Chaturthi Puja, Lord Ganesha is worshipped with twenty one sacred Patra or leaves. It is believed that worshipping Lord Ganesha with his favorite leaves pleases Him. A pleased Ganesha bestows strength, long life, wisdom, wealth and prosperity upon His devotees. Hence 21 Patra Puja has become integral part of Ganesh Puja.

All twenty-one leaves are associated with twenty-one unique names of Lord Ganesha. Each leave is offered while chanting a unique name Mantra of Lord Ganesha. Hence, twenty one Patra Puja is also known as Eka-Vinshati Name Puja (एक विंशति नाम पूजन). 21 Ganesha Patra lists all twenty ones leaves used in Ganesha Puja along with their local and botanical names.

Brahma Vaivarta Purana prohibits Tulasi leaves (basil leaves) for Ganesh Puja. According to it, Tulasi leaves should not be offered to Lord Ganesha. But as per Narada Purana, Tulasi leaves can be offered to Surpakarna incarnation and as per Vratraj Tulasi leaves can be offered to Gajavaktram incarnation of Lord Ganesha.
