According to Hinduism, worship of Lord Ganesha is performed on Tuesdays. On this day Kali Mata, Durga Mata and Hanuman are also worshiped. Do not eat breakfast while fasting on this day and do not add salt to your evening meal. The fast of Tuesday is considered to be the best for attaining all kinds of happiness, alleviating blood disorders, suppressing enemies, protecting health and having a son. It is considered good to start this fast from the first Tuesday of Shukla Paksha. It is customary to observe this fast for at least 21 Tuesdays, but it is better to observe it for the rest of one’s life.
If you have to eat wheat and sugarcane during the fast on Tuesday, you have to wear red clothes. The unlucky fruit of Mars is also calmed by the fast of Tuesday. While worshiping Lord Ganesha on Tuesday, one should chant the mantra ‘Om Bhoomaya Namah’. Red flowers, fruits, copper, coconut, etc. should be donated during worship. In addition, Tuesday is considered the best day to worship Hanuman ji. Hanuman is actually the god of evil. Hanuman is called ‘Sarvagrahavinashine’ and ‘Rakshovidyavanshakarkaye’. Hanuman is said to be the strongest of all the planets in religious and mythological stories.
Hanuman is considered to be the deity of a steady heart. Hanuman is also known as a yogi or a sadhu who has remained unmarried all his life and has attained Brahmacharya. In the fasting story of Tuesday, it is mentioned in the religious story that a Brahmin got a son named ‘Mangal’ because he worshiped Hanuman.
