Sankashti Chaturthi Significance
As per Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha was pleased with Krishna Chaturthi who had performed strict fast to seek his blessings. So, at Chandrodaya (moonrise), Lord Ganesh appeared to bless her, seeing this Krishna Chaturthi wished for an eternal association with the lord and wished to play a vital role in helping devotees to get rid of their troubles.
As Ganesha appeared at the moonrise that’s why the Sankashti Vrat is broken after sighting the moon.
