Lord Ganesha and Kartikeya

Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartikeya is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Lord Ganesha, being the elder son, was very intelligent and wise in nature. On the other hand, Lord Kartikeya was very impatient and short tempered. They both possessed different nature and different physical qualities, thus some time they had serious arguments or fight.

Once they had a serious argument on their strength and wisdom. So they approached to Lord Shiva for final settlement and justice. After hearing both of them Lord Shiva declared that among the two, who will first complete circling the universe would be the winner.

Without any delay Lord Kartikeya sat on his “Vahana”, the peacock, and started his journey round the universe travelling across the mountains, the sea and the rest universe. But big bellied Ganesha knew that with his “Vahana” the little rat, he can’t win the race. So he stopped and thought for a while. Suddenly he got an idea; he made Lord Shiva and Parvati to sit together and walked around them thrice. When Kartikeya returned after successfully completing his round, he saw Ganesha sitting in lap of his father. He could not understand why Ganesha is sitting rather than completing his task and blamed Ganesha for being unjust. Lord Ganesha told him that he had completed his round not once but thrice. Ganesha said his parents are his Universe, thus he proved himself by circling them. Lord Shiva was very pleased with Ganesha and boon him with the first one to be worshipped by people before starting any work. But Kartikeya lost his patience and thought that his father especially his mother was partial to him. He took a pledge, not to see any women face specially his mother face. He kept his words that’s why in many temples of Lord Kartikeya women’s are not allowed to enter.

Legend of Ganesh Chaturthi

The mythological basis of the celebration is found in the Puranas. Parvati, while taking a bath, wanted somebody to guard from outside. She got the idea of making an idol out of the dirt that came from her body. She placed the idol outside. The idol did not even let her husband enter. Shankar became furious and instantly severed the head of the idol.

Parvati finished her bath and came out. She explained to her husband the reason for placing the idol before the door. The idol was her creation. In fact the idol was her son ("manas putra"), and consequently also Shankar's son.

Shankar felt sorry for what he had done. His servant Gan was standing nearby. Shankar ordered him to go and bring the head of the first living being he would meet. The servant saw an elephant, and he at once cut his head and took it to Shankar. Shankar joined the elephant's head to the body of Parvati's son. "Gaj" means elephant and "anan" means head, so Parvati's son became known as "Gajanan". Shankar made him the deity of his armies and thus his name became Ganesh.
