History

There are various stories regarding Lord Ganesha, some tales claim he is Shiva and Parvati's biological son. The most well-known myth is that Parvati created a boy, who she claimed to be her son, to keep watch over her and guard her.


One day, Shiva returned after a battle, and wanted to step into the bathing area to clean up. Parvati was bathing inside while young Ganesha stood watch, and when Shiva came to the entrance the youngling stopped him from going any further. Shiva, who is the epitome of fury, was naturally offended. He used his sword to separate the boy's head from his shoulders. When Parvati saw what happened, she went into a rage that shook the entire universe and even disturbed the great destroyer himself. Later, in an effort to calm the enraged Parvati, Shiva sent his warriors out from the palace and told them to take the head of the first living thing they saw that was facing north. It turned out to be an elephant. Shiva revived the boy by attaching the elephant's head to his body. Due to his propensity for listening and contemplating, Lord Ganesha came to represent wisdom and success in overcoming challenges, and it is believed that the fruits of wisdom and success are endowed upon those who keep his statue nearby.
