There are two important values associated with Anant Chaturdashi. Firstly, it is the day of the immersion of Ganpati. The festival of Ganpati comes to an end on this day. The installed Murti's of Lord Ganpati are taken to a sea, river or a lake in great processions to be immersed in the waters on this day as well. Finally, Hindu’s bid farewell to Lord Ganesha until next year.
The second reason for Anant Chaturdashi is that on this day people listen and recite to the legends and stories of God Vishnu who is Anant who is the infinite. They also recite hymns from the Vedas. This is often also called Ananta Vrat.
