मेघश्यामं पीतकौशेयवासं श्रीवत्साङ्कं कौस्तुभोद्भासिताङ्गम् ।

(Salutations to Sri Vishnu) Who is Beautiful like the Dark Clouds, and Who is wearing Yellow Garments of Silk; Who has the mark of Srivatsa on His Chest; and Whose Body is Shining with the Radiance of the Kaushtubha Mani, Whose Form is permeated with Holiness, and Whose Beautiful Eyes are extended like the Lotus Petals; We Salute Sri Vishnu Who is the One Lord of all the Lokas.

Lord Krishna is worshiped on Wednesday. Wednesday is dedicated to planet Mercury. Lord Vitthal is also worshiped on this day as well. Budha or Mercury is regarded as the wisest and the bestower of wealth and wisdom to his devotees. Lord Ganesha is the God of prosperity, wealth and wisdom. Hence on this day, worshiping Lord Ganesha is also an appropriate on Wednesdays. Lord Vishnu is also worshiped.  Wednesdays are supposedly good days to start new endeavors because Budh helps to start projects.

The offering made to Budha usually includes green colored grams like Moong Dal. Black and red color flowers are offered to him. Devotees offer ghee and curd. The fruit offered is grape.
