The deity of Lord Ganesh is very popular in the minds of the masses and worshipped in almost all Hindu houses in India and abroad. Lord Ganesh is the eldest son of Lord Shiva and our divine mother Goddess Parvati. Lord Ganesha has an eleph...antine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the God of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Lord Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja. ( five bodies worship)The head of Lord Ganesh symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand, Lord Ganesh holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in left hand of Lord Ganesh is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties. The broken tusk that Lord Ganesh holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman( soul) His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. The snake that runs round his waist represents energy in all forms and he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse.The story connected with the Birth of this holy deity Lord Ganesh as depicted in the Shiva Purana, goes like this: Once Goddess Parvati, while bathing, created a boy out of the dirt of her body and assigned him the task of guarding the entrance to her bathroom. When Lord Shiva, her husband returned, he was surprised to find a stranger denying him access, and struck off the boy's head in rage. Goddess Parvati broke down in utter grief and to soothe her, Lord Shiva sent out his squad (Gana) to fetch the head of any sleeping being who was facing the north. The company found a sleeping elephant and brought back its severed head, which was then attached to the body of the boy. Lord Shiva restored its life and made him the leader (pati) of his troops. Hence, his name 'Ganapati' became a very popular. Lord Shiva also bestowed a boon that people would worship him and invoke his name before undertaking any venture.However, there's another less popular story of his origin, found in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana: Lord Shiva asked his spouse divine mother Goddess Parvati to observe the punyaka vrata for a year to appease Lord Vishnu in order to have a son. When a son was born to her, to felicitate the happy occasion all the Gods and Goddesses assembled to rejoice on its birth. Lord Shani, the son of Surya (Sun-God), was also present but he refused to look at the infant. Perturbed at this behavior, Goddess Parvati asked him the reason, and Lord Shani( Sun God) replied that his looking at baby would harm the newborn. However, on Goddess Parvati's insistence when Lord Shani ( Sun God) eyed the baby, the child's head was severed instantly. All the Gods started to bemoan, whereupon Lord Vishnu hurried to the bank of river Pushpabhadra and brought back the head of a young elephant, and joined it to the baby's body, thus reviving it. Lord Ganesh is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride. He is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations. All Hindus worship Lord Ganesh regardless of their sectarian belief that Lord Ganesh happens to be both the beginning of the religion and the meeting ground for all Hindus. The devotees of Lord Ganesh are rightly called as 'Ganapatyas', and the festival to celebrate and glorify Lord Ganesh is called Ganesh Chaturthi that is celebrated with great festivity and fervor. Ganesha Chaturthi is also known as Vinayaga Chaturthi that is the Hindu festival of Lord Ganesh who is believed to bestow his presence on earth for all his devotees in the duration of this festival. It is the Birthday of Lord Ganesh who is widely worshipped as the God of Wisdom, Prosperity and Good fortune.It is observed as per the Hindu calendar in the month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shukla chaturthi (fourth day of the waxing moon period). The date usually falls between August 20 and September15. The festival lasts for ten days, ending on Anant Chaturdashi (fourteenth day of the waxing moon period).While it is being celebrated all over India but its most elaborate celebration could be seen in western and southern India. Outside India, it is celebrated widely in Nepal and by Hindus in the United States, Canada and Fiji besides all over the world. Let us join to chant this holy mantra” Gajanana Shri Ganaraya aadi vandu tujha Moraya;Ganpati Bappa Morya!Mangal Murti Morya”( In Engish,it s said: I wish u Happy Ganesh Chaturthi andI pray to God for your prosperous life.May you find all the delights of life,May your all dreams come true!
