Default A doubt - launching

I have a doubt - might seem silly,

but why is the satellite(chandrayan) after launching,being kept orbiting the earth for several times before its being launched into the Lunar orbit? why isnt it directly fired to moon orbit in a straight path.?


Regards,

Because India does not have a huge rocket capable of doing this.
