History Of Ganesha
Once Lord Shiva went to a place called Bhogavati from Mount Kailash to take a bath. After his departure, Parvati Ji went to take a bath and made an effigy from the filth of her body and made it alive. She named him Ganesh.
Parvati Ji said, Ganesh, you take a mug and go to the door and guard it. I am taking bath inside. So keep in mind that you don’t let anyone inside until I take a bath. On the other hand, after a while after bathing in Bhogavati, when lord shiva came back and wanted to enter the house, Ganesha stopped him at the door. Shiva considered this as an insult and got angry and went inside after separating his head from the torso.
When Lord Shiva with crooked eyebrows reached inside, Parvati Ji saw him angry and understood that Mahadev was angry due to the delay in food. So she immediately called Shivaji after serving food on two plates and requested him to have food. Then seeing the second plate, Shiva asked Parvati ‘For what is this second plate used?’ On this Parvati Ji said – For her son Ganesh, who is guarding the door outside.’ Hearing this, Shiva was surprised and said – Your son is guarding? But when he stopped me across the door, I ended his life by beheading him.
Hearing this Parvati became very sad and started mourning. He asked Shiva to revive the son. Then to please Parvati, Lord shiva cut off the head of an elephant child and attached it to the body of that child. Parvati was very glad to find her son Ganesh alive again. This incident happened on Bhadrapada Shukla Chaturthi. Therefore this date is celebrated as a holy festival. (For more info read Ganesh Puran:).
