BG 8.23-26: I shall now describe to you the different paths of passing away from this world, O best of the Bharatas, one of which leads to liberation and the other leads to rebirth. Those who know the Supreme Brahman and who depart from this world, during the six months of the sun’s northern course, the bright fortnight of the moon, and the bright part of the day, attain the supreme destination. The practitioners of Vedic rituals, who pass away during the six months of the sun’s southern course, the dark fortnight of the moon, the time of smoke, the night, attain the celestial abodes. After enjoying celestial pleasures, they again return to the earth. These two, bright and dark paths, always exist in this world. The way of light leads to liberation and the way of darkness leads to rebirth.

Satyanarayan Puja is a Hindu religious ritual dedicated to Lord Vishnu, also known as Satyanarayana. Described in the Skanda Purana, a medieval Sanskrit text, this puja involves a recitation of the Satyanarayana Katha (story) which highlights the spiritual and worldly benefits of performing the ritual. The narrative emphasizes the importance of fulfilling promises made to God and recounts tales of those who neglected their vows. This puja is often performed during auspicious occasions and is a symbol of gratitude and reverence in the Hindu faith.

Sankashti Chaturthi, also known as Sankatahara Chaturthi, is a Hindu observance dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It occurs every lunar month on the fourth day after the full moon (Krishna Paksha). Devotees observe a strict fast, breaking it at night after moonrise with prayers to Ganesha. The significance increases if this Chaturthi falls on a Tuesday, known as Angaraki Sankashti Chaturthi, believed to be especially auspicious. Each month’s Sankashti Chaturthi involves worshiping Ganesha with a different name and peeta (seat), accompanied by specific Vrata Kathas (stories).
