Budhwar Vrath Katha
Budhwar Vrat or Budhvar Vrat is the Wednesday fasting dedicated to Lord Ganesh and Planet Mercury. Budhwar is the day of Lord Budha (Budhan) or Planet Mercury – one of the Navagrahas or nine planets in Hindu astrology. Budh or Mercury is regarded as the wisest and the bestower of wealth and wisdom to his devotees. Lord Ganesha or Ganapathi is the god of prosperity, wealth and wisdom. Hence worshiping and observing fast dedicated to Lord Ganesh and Planet Mercury is considered very appropriate on Wednesdays.
