Ganesh Chaturthi 2022: The legend behind it
Lord Ganesha is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. There are different stories surrounding his birth. According to one such legend, it’s said that Goddess Parvati sculpted Ganesha with her sandalwood paste in the absence of Lord Shiva and crated him. She put him on guard while she went to take a bath. When she was gone, Lord Shiva arrived and Ganesha, not knowing who he was, stopped him from going inside, as per his mother’s instructions. Angered, Lord Shiva severed Ganesha’s head. When Parvati discovered this, she was furious and transformed into the goddess Kali and threatened that she would end the world. All the Gods prayed to Lord Shiva to find a solution and calm Goddess Kali’s fury. Shiva then ordered all of his followers to seek and find a child whose mother has neglectfully turned her back on her child, and bring his head. The first infant seen by the followers was that of an elephant, whose head was given to Lord Shiva as instructed. The head was instantly placed on Ganesha’s body by Lord Shiva, who came back to life. Ganesha received blessings from all the Lords, and this is why the day is still observed and celebrated today. Ganesha is also worshipped first before any auspicious occasion, including any pujas.
