The diety of this fast enhances the education, communication skills and intelligence of the devotee. Mercury is known as prince of planets. If a person observes 128 fasts on Wednesdays continuously he becomes very intelligent, influential and skilled in accomplishing all tasks. He enjoys all the pleasures of the world. 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.
