GANESH CHATURTHI 2023: HISTORY

According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Parvati used sandalwood paste to create Ganesha in absence of Lord Shiva to guard her while she takes a bath. When Lord Shiva tried to enter the hall where she was bathing, he was stopped by Ganesha and they both got into an argument.

Being an obedient son, Ganesha respected his mother’s orders and didn’t allow Lord Shiva to enter the hall. This enraged Lord Shiva and he separated Ganesha’s head from his body. After seeing this, Goddess Parvati transformed into her Kali avatar and threatened to destroy the universe in anger.

To calm her rage, Lord Shiva then ordered his followers to find a head of a sleeping child but on one condition – the mother of the child should have her back towards him. The first head that was found by Lord Shiva’s followers belonged to a baby elephant. Lord Shiva attached the head to Ganesha’s body and gave him another life. That day is annually celebrated as Ganesh Chaturthi since then, as per mythology.
