Why should the moon not be seen on Ganesh Chaturthi?
According to mythological beliefs, looking at the moon on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi brings false stigma to a person. This can tarnish your image and harm your reputation and honor. When Lord Shri Krishna saw the moon of Chauth in Dwapara Yuga, he was falsely accused of theft.
Ganesh Ji cursed the moon
Once Lord Ganesha was eating when Chandra Dev started mocking him after seeing his appearance. On this, Lord Ganesha became angry and cursed Chandra Dev that he would lose his influence and all the arts would also be destroyed. Whoever sees you will also feel guilty. Later when Chandradev prayed for forgiveness, Ganesh ji said that his influence would increase for 15 days in a month and will decrease for 15 days. Due to the curse of Lord Ganesha, the moon is not seen on Chaturthi.
Lord Krishna was accused of gem theft after seeing the Chauth moon
According to the legend, once Lord Krishna saw the moon of Chauth, he was accused of stealing the Syamantaka gem. Now to free it from the false stigma, he set out in search of Syamantak Mani. She was with Mani Jamwant. Jamwant had obtained that gem by killing a lion. However, Surya Dev had given Syamantak Mani to Satyabhama's father. Wearing this, his son went to the forest, where the lion killed him and kept the gem with himself. Syamantak Mani reached Jamwant from that couplet.
