Ganesh Chaturthi: Birth of Lord Ganesha

One day, Goddess Parvati was waiting for a shower at their house on Mt. Kailash. She advised Nandi, her husband Shiva’s Bull, not wanting to be interrupted, to guard the gate and let no one enter. Nandi faithfully gave up his position with the intention of fulfilling the desires of Parvati. 

But when Shiva arrived back and wished to arrive in willingly, Nandi had to let him leave, being faithful to Shiva first. At this barrier, Parvati was upset, but even more so, at the reality that she had no one as faithful to Herself as Nandi was to Shiva.

So she developed Ganesha by taking the turmeric powder from her skin and breathe light into it, telling him to be her own faithful child.

The Story After What Happened

The next time when Parvati went to take a bath, she told her son Ganesh to guard and do not let anyone enter the place. Ganesh, being faithful to her mother, did not let Shiva enter the placed and was beheaded by him.

To save the Earth from Parvati’s ferocious anger, lord Shiva placed ahead of an elephant and gave life to Ganesh.

Ganpati is considered the god of success in Hindu mythology. It is believed that his presence marks happiness and prosperity in everyone’s life. His birthday marks the commencement of happy days in our lives and thus blesses us with good health. 

If you observe fast for all nine days and bring home the deity, then you will be blessed with the blessings of Lord Shiva and Parvati and will be blessed with good health, and will never face any financial issues.
