How was Ganesha born and Popular mythological stories of Lord Ganesha

1) Story of birth of Lord Ganesha

Once when Goddess Parvati went to take bath she ordered Nandi (Lord Shiva's Loyal Guard, the Bull) to guard the entrance and let no one inside. But when Lord Shiva came and wanted to go in, Nandi being loyal to Shiva didn't stop him.

Seeing this Parvati felt that there is no one as loyal to her as Nandi to Shiva, and she took the Turmeric paste from her body and shaped it into a boy and gave life to it.

The boy was named as the loyal son of Parvati.

The next time when Parvati went to take bath she asked her Son to Guard the entrance and let no one inside. Being loyal to his mother, he obediently stood to guard the place.

Soon Lord Shiva came and he wanted to go in, but was confronted by the young boy. Seeing this Lord Shiva got angry and sent his army to teach him a lesson.

But the boy being Goddess Parvati's son, toyed with the army and defeated them easily. Seeing this Lord Shiva got furious and threw his Weapon (The Trishul, three pointed spear) towards the boy and the weapon beheaded the boy and sent his head tumbling far away in the galaxy.

When Parvati returned she was in shatters seeing her beheaded son, and got full with rage and wanted to destroy the entire earth and heaven. Seeing this Lord Bramha (Creator of the earth), intervened and asked the Goddess to show mercy.

Listening to Lord Bramha, Parvati asked for two things:

Firstly, the boy should be brought back to life and Second, that he should be worshipped foremost among all the Gods.

By that time Lord Shiva's anger had cooled down and he realised his mistake, so he asks Bramha to get a head for the boy, asking him to get the head of the first creature he sees while travelling towards North.

Soon, Lord Bramha returns with the head of a elephant, which Lord Shiva takes and places as the boys head, bringing him back to life.

After that he was names as Ganesha by all the Gods, and they showered flowers and blessing to the Young Lord Ganesha.

Ganesha or the Supreme among the Ganas (Gods), since then is worshipped the first among all the Gods.

2) Lord Ganesha and Murugan going around the world

Once Saint Narad came across with a fruit and gave it to Lord Shiva and Parvati, asking them to give it to the person they love the most.

Both Shiva and Parvati were in a dilemma whether to give it to their son Ganesha or to their son Murugan.

Shiva then decided to have a competition between both of them and tells them that, whoever goes around the world three times and comes back first will get the fruit.

Hearing this Lord Murugan embarks upon his carried, the peacock and starts for his Journey around the world. Ganesha stays back and thinks for a while and then starts going around his parents Lord Shiva and Paravati, and completes three rounds and says:

'For me my parents are my world and I have completed the challenge by going around the world three times'

Seeing the wisdom of Ganesha, Lord Shiva declares him the winner and gives the fruit to him.

When Murugan returns and learns that he has been defeated he gets upset, seeing which Lord Ganesha readily offers the fruit to him.

Since then, Ganesha is worshipped and known for his wisdom and generosity.

Lord Ganesha and Kubera

3) Ganesha and Kubera

Once Kubera (Lord of wealth) invites Lord Shiva and Parvati to his palace to have a feast. But both of them say no, and when Kubera insists, Lord Shiva then says that they won't be able to come but can send their son Ganesha, but if Kubera will be able to feed him.

Seeing Ganesha, as a young kid, Kubera burst into laughter and says that he can feed thousands of kids like him.

Ganesha then goes to Kubera's Palace and starts eating, soon all food in the palace gets over. Kubera asks his men to get more food, but Ganesha eats them all and then starts eating the palace furniture's.

Then he goes towards kubera saying that you are not able to feed me, am still hungry so I will eat you. Kubera gets frightened and goes to Lord Shiva, Shiva asks him to give up his pride and feed a handful of rice to Ganesha with modesty.

Kubera learns a lesson and does the same. Ganesha happily eats the rice and his hunger goes away.

Lord Ganesha and the Moon

4) Ganesha and No Moon day

Once at night when Ganesha was returning from a feast, where he had overeaten, his belly was too heavy and soon burst out. Seeing his belly wide open Ganesha catches a snake passing by and ties his stomach back.

Seeing this the Moon bursts into laughter, feeling insulted Ganesha curses the moon to get vanished in the night.

Moon soon realising his fault, pleads to Ganesha to have mercy on him.

As curse can't be taken back, Ganesha lessens its effect saying that only once in a year the moon will vanish in the sky during the night.

Since then we observer the day as Amavasya or the No Moon day, when there is no moon seen in the Sky during the night.

Lord Ganesha and Durva (Bermuda Grass)

5) Ganesha and Durva (Bermuda Grass)

Once upon a time, a demon called Anal Asura, who used to emit fireballs from his eyes, has terrorized all the Gods. Anal Asura was a gigantic demon and just his voice would make any God tremble, he was ferocious with the fireballs emitting from his eyes.

All the Gods being terrified go to Lord Ganesha to ask for help. Ganesha hearing about the notorious demon, decides to destroy him. Ganesha then goes to the demons place and they start fighting with their eyes.

Anal Asura starts emitting fireballs simultaneously moving towards Ganesha to gulp him over. Seeing this Ganesha takes a gigantic form and before Anal Asura could understand anything, gulps him over.

After gulping Anal Asura, due to the demons heat emission, Ganesha starts feeling restless.

All Gods come to his help, and start providing remedy one by one. First they all shape the moon essence and place it on his head, then Lord Vishnu (preserver of the universe) puts Lotus in his hand, Lord Shiva ties a cobra round his belly, Rain God showers plenty of water but all go in vain.

Seeing this Saints present there, suggest to place 21 durva grass on Ganeshas forehead, and all Gods agree to that. One placing the Durva grass, Ganesha recovers miraculously. Since then he adores Durva grass and anyone worshipping Lord Ganesha with Durva grass gets boons.

Another story about Durva grass says that, Ganesha was in love with a semi Goddess yakshini, but Parvati doesn't like it, she curses yakshini to become Durva grass. So that no one pays attention to her. But as Yakshini pleads, Parvati blesses her by saying that even she is Durva grass she will always be the object of affection for Ganesha.

Lord Ganesha's Favorite food - Modak

6) Ganesha's favorite Modak (Sweet made of Jaggery and coconut filled into rice balls)

Once the Saints come and provide a precious Modak to Shiva and Parvati and say that whoever has this delicious Modak will gain never ending intellect.

There was only one Modaks and Parvati had to now decide between Ganesha and Murugan. She calls both of them and says if you need this delicious Modak you both need to compete, One who goes and worships all Gana's (God's) and comes back the first will have this Modak.

Listening to this Murugan rides his peacock and goes fast to worship all Gana's. Ganesha tempted by the Modak, thinks for a while and sits down to worship Parvati and Shiva. Once done Ganesha says, no one is more supreme and complete in the whole world other than Parents. So I have worshiped all the Gana's in the entire world by worshipping my parents.

Parvati, seeing Ganesha's intellect and sincerity, gives the Modak to him. Ganesha happily consumes the Modak and since then Modak is favorite offering for Lord Ganesha.

7) How Mouse became the vehicle/carrier of Lord Ganesha

Once there was a demon called Gajamugasuram, who got boons from Lord Shiva and became very powerful. In the ego of his power he started tormenting the Gods, and they approached Shiva for help. Shiva sent Ganesha to help the Gods. Ganesha went and fought with the demon with all his weapons and might but failed as the demon had got boons from Lord Shiva.

Then the demon took the form of a huge mouse and ran towards Ganesha to destroy him. Seeing the mouse coming towards him, Ganesha smartly jumped and sat over the mouse. After sitting on top of the mouse, the demon got terrified and asked for mercy.
Ganesha then took pity and said that from that day onwards he will be his vehicle.

Another mythological story says that, One when the music God, Karuncha, accidentally stepped over the feet of a Saint. The Saint cursed him to become a mouse.

Karuncha transformed into a gigantic mouse and started destroying everything in his path. Ganesha then came to the rescue and sat over the mouse, not able to bear the weight of Ganesha, Karuncha pleaded for mercy.

Ganesha then made himself light weighted to give Karuncha relief and said that from that day onwards, the mouse will be his vehicle.

Festivals and Faith

Lord Ganesha is always associated with one's prosperity, success and well being. Hindu's always chant and worship Ganesha before they venture out for any work or travel or any good deed.

Ganesh chaturthi or Ganesh utsav is celebrated widely in India, on the day of re-birth of Lord Ganesha.

The day when Lord Shiva replaces Parvati's son's head with that of a elephant and declares him as their Son Ganesha (Supreme among all Gods) and blesses him to be worshipped foremost among all Gods.

Ganesh Utsav falls between Aug 19 to September 20 every year and is celebrated over 10 days. The festival is celebrated with most enthusiasm and in a loud manner in Mumbai, the western part of India.

People build large pandals (Huge Tents decorated with Flowers and lights) all over the city and Worship Ganesha's Idol (About 50-80 feet high), made of clay, over 10 days before the Idol is carried with music and dance towards the Sea for Immersion.

Why to Immerse Ganesha's Idol in water ? The process of immersing Ganesha's clay Idol into water is known as Visarjan. It symbolises the Hindu faith of Moksha: Not clinging to the worldly pleasures, You need to leave the earth empty handed, the same way as you came.

Heavy crowd gathers over to move around the city and worship Lord Ganesha with various offerings like Modak, flowers, Durva etc. It feels like the city is buzzing and colorfully lighted 24 X 7 for 10 days.

If you want to take a glimpse of the festival and be part of the immersion crowd, dance and music; then Mumbai is the destination for you between August 19 to September 20.

Not to forget, the EXCELLENT job done by the Mumbai Police, to carefully organize and protect the huge crowd of millions of devotees, during the Immersion process of Lord Ganesha. My heartful salute to them !!

      Beautiful hub and very interesting. I love stories like this that tell the history of how a particular god or goddess came to be. I was not aware of the mouse messenger and will have to pay closer attention next time I am near a painting or statue. I have a beautiful, ornate elephant on my shelf that reminds me of Lord Ganesha.

      The videos were a nice touch, however the first video was unattainable. Thanks for sharing. UP/A/I/U

      This is my first read but definitely not the last. My son loves reading mythology about gods and goddesses. Its interesting. I have the app of Lord Ganesha on my phone and the music is very calming that you'll even feel you're in a holy place. Thank you for this.

      I had to revisit this hub, mr-veg, and tell you how impressive it is. It is an amazingly long, but thorough and well written article. It must have taken you a long time to complete it. Sharing once more.
