Sankashti Ganesh Chaturthi vrat is observed on the fourth day of Waning Moon period. Sankashti Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated every Indian month. Some people even observe fast during this day.
The benefits of Chaturthi fasting include material progress, happiness and fulfillment of desires. The importance of Chaturthi vrat was explained by Lord Krishna to Yudhishtira, the eldest of the Pandavas. It is also mentioned in the Narasimha Purana and Bhavishaya Purana.
