Story Of Ganesh Ji
Story – 1
In the Puranas, many stories are described in relation to Ganesha. According to a legend, once Lord Shiva’s disciple Shani Dev came to Mount Kailash. At that time Shiva was in meditation, so Shani Dev reached directly to see Parvati. Then Parvati was sitting with the child Ganesha. Child Ganesha’s face was beautiful and he was going to forget all kinds of troubles. Shanidev lowered his eyes and started talking to Parvati.
Parvati saw that Shani Dev was not looking at anyone. They are constantly lowering their gaze. Parvati asked Shani Dev why he is not seeing anyone? Has he got any visual impairment? Explaining the reason, Shanidev said that his wife has cursed him that whoever he sees will be destroyed. Parvati asked why his wife had given such a curse, then Shani Dev said that I am constantly in the meditation of Lord Shiva. Once I was in meditation and my wife came near me after retiring from the season, but I did not look at her because I was in meditation.
He took it as an insult and cursed me that whoever I look at will be destroyed. Hearing this, Parvati said that you look at my son Ganesha, the brightness of his face is going to defeat all the troubles. Shanidev did not want to look at Ganesha but he could not disobey the order of Mother Parvati, so he looked at Ganesha slowly with slanting eyes. As soon as Shani Dev was seen, the head of the child Ganesha was cut off and fell down. Then Lord Vishnu arrived with the head of a gazelle and placed it on Ganesha’s head.

According to another legend, when Parvati was playing a festival with Shiva, she got some dirt on her. When he realized this, he removed the dirt from his body and made a boy out of it and named him Ganesha. Mata Parvati ordered Ganesha that no one should be allowed inside the house without her permission as she is taking a bath.
When Shivji returned, he saw that a child was standing at the door. When they started going inside, that boy stopped them and did not let them go. Seeing this, Shivji got angry and asked his riding bull Nandi to fight with that child. But that little boy defeated Nandi in the war. Seeing this, Lord Shiva got angry and cut off the head of that child Ganesha.
Now when Mother Parvati returned, she became very sad and started crying loudly. When Shivji came to know that he was his own son, he also realized his mistake. Shivji tried to explain a lot to Parvati but she did not agree and started getting hurt while taking the name of Ganesha.
In the end, Mother Parvati got angry and asked Shivji to revive Ganesha with her power. Shivji said – O Parvati, I can make Ganesha alive, but only after connecting the head of any other living being. Mother Parvati started crying and said – I want my son alive in any condition.
On hearing this, Shivji ordered Nandi – Go Nandi, cut off the head of any living creature you find in this world. When Nandi was searching for the head, he first saw an elephant, so he cut off its head and brought it. Lord Shiva attached that head to Ganesha’s body and gave life to Ganesha. That’s why Shivji named Ganesha as Ganapati and all the other gods gave him a boon that whatever new work he does in this world, he will first remember Jai Shri Ganesha.
Story About Being A Ekdant
Story – 1
According to the Brahmavaivarta Purana, Parashurama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was a disciple of Shiva. The ax with which he killed the Kshatriyas from the earth 17 times, that infallible ax was given to him by Shiva. After defeating the Kshatriyas 17 times, the Brahmin Parshuram went to Mount Kailash to visit Shiva and Parvati. At that time Lord Shiva was sleeping and Ganesha himself was on guard. Ganesh stopped Parshuram. Parshuram used to get angry very quickly.
On being stopped, they started quarreling with Ganesha. The quarrel increased so much that Parshuram pushed Ganesha. Ganesh also got angry as soon as he fell. Parshuram was a Brahmin, so Ganesha did not want to attack him. He caught Parashurama by his trunk and made him go round and round in all the four directions. While roaming around, Ganesha also made Parshuram see his Krishna form. After roaming around for a few moments, Ganesha left him.
Parshuram remained calm for a while after being released. Later, when Parshuram realized his humiliation, he attacked Ganesha with his ax. The ax was given by Shiva, so Ganesha did not want to let his attack fail, thinking that he took that attack on one of his teeth. As soon as the furrow was hit, the tooth broke and fell. Meanwhile, hearing the uproar, Shiva also came out of bed and pacified both of them. Since then Ganesha was left with only one tooth and he came to be known as Ekdant.

Another story is that when Maharishi Vedvyas sat down to write the Mahabharata, he needed a person who could write down the story of the Mahabharata that came out of his mouth. He chose Shri Ganesh ji for this work. Ganesh ji also agreed to this, but he had a condition that the writing of the entire Mahabharata would have to be completed without stopping even for a moment. Ganesh ji said – If you stop even once, I will stop writing.
Maharishi Vedvyas accepted this condition of Ganesh ji. But Ved Vyas put a condition in front of Ganesha as well and said – Whatever you write Ganesha, you will write after understanding it. Ganesh ji also agreed to his condition. Both sat down to write the epic of Mahabharata. Ved Vyas ji started speaking the epic from his own mouth and Ganesh ji started writing quickly after understanding it. After writing for some time, Ganesh ji’s pen suddenly broke. The pen could not handle the pace of Maharishi’s speech.
Ganesh ji understood that he was a little proud and did not understand the power and knowledge of Maharishi. After that, he slowly broke one of his teeth and started writing the story of Mahabharata again by dipping it in ink.
Description In Puranas
According to the Linga Purana, once the deities worshiped Lord Shiva and asked him for a boon to present obstacles in the evil deeds of malevolent demons. Ashutosh Shiva satisfied the deities by saying ‘Amen’. Lord Ganesha appeared at the right moment. His face was like that of an elephant and he had a trishul in one hand and a noose in the other. The deities prostrated at the feet of Gajanan again and again while showering blessings.
Lord Shiva ordered Ganesha to do a favor to the gods and Brahmins by creating obstacles in the work of the demons. Similarly, different stories of the incarnation of Lord Ganesha are found in Brahma Vaivarta Purana, Skanda Purana and Shiv Purana. Prajapati Vishwakarma’s two daughters named Siddhi-Buddhi are the wives of Ganesha. Two sons were born, named Kshem from Siddhi and Labh from Buddhi. In the scriptures and Puranas, lion, peacock and mouse have been described as the vehicles of Ganesha.
The description of Lord Ganapati’s appearances, his pastimes and the different forms of his captivating deity is found in Puranas and Shastras. He has had many incarnations since Kalpabhed. All his characters are eternal. *According to Padma Purana, once Shri Parvati ji made a Purushakriti from the dirt of her body, whose face was like that of an elephant. Then they put that figure in the Ganges. As soon as it fell in Gangaji, that figure became gigantic. Parvati addressed him as ‘son’. The Dev community respected him by calling him Gangey and Brahma ji gave him the name Ganesha by giving him the lordship of the ganas.
