Tithi in Jyotish is the lunar day. It is one of the most important limbs of the Panchang (Almanac). It is based on the relationship between the Sun and the Moon.
The waxing phase of the Moon is called Shukla paksha and the waning phase of the Moon is called Krishna paksha. Each paksha has 15 tithis associated with them.
Lord Ganesha is the closest to the material plane, and HE is the one who can help us during this Kali Yuga. Success comes when we are at the right place at the right time grabbing the right opportunities. Worship of Lord Ganesha not only helps to remove obstacles in life, it also helps with the intuitive power to be at the right place at the right time! HE has the power to change a bad day into a good one.
