GANESH CHATURTHI 2023: HISTORY
According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Parvati used sandalwood paste to create Ganesha in the absence of Lord Shiva to protect himself while bathing. When Lord Shiva tried to enter the hall where she was taking bath, he was stopped by Ganesha and they both got into an argument.
Being an obedient son, Ganesha respected his mother’s orders and did not allow Lord Shiva to enter the hall. This enraged Lord Shiva and he beheaded Ganesha. After seeing this, Goddess Parvati transformed into her Kali avatar and threatened to destroy the universe in anger.
To appease her anger, Lord Shiva ordered his followers to find the head of a sleeping child, but on one condition – the child’s mother’s back should be towards them. The first head that the followers of Lord Shiva found was that of a baby elephant. Lord Shiva attached the head to the torso of Ganesha and gave him a second life. According to mythology, since then that day is celebrated every year as Ganesh Chaturthi.
