When Sankatahara Chadurthi falls on a Tuesday it is considered very auspicious and
known as Angarak Sankatahara Chadurthi
Sankata (means problems) and Hara (means killing or removing) and therefore Sankata Hara Chadurthi is a day to invoke Lord Ganesh's blessings to remove all problems in life. Sankata Hara Chathurthi vratham is very auspicious for removing all obstacles in life and to convert your problems into opportunities. You may recite sthothras, chants on Lord Ganesha on this day and invoke His Grace. It is customary to fast throughout the day and break the fast after sighting the Moon cresecent on this day.
Every month, the chadurthi falling after the full moon is Sankatahara Chaurthi.
