History of Ganesh Chaturthi
According to traditional stories, Goddess Parvati created Ganesha out of clay and asked him to guard her doorway while she takes a bath. Lord Shiva, who returned from Mount Kailasa was stopped by Ganesha from entering Parvati’s chambers. Unaware of who Ganesha was, Lord Shiva ordered his Ganas to attack and kill Ganesha. Ganesha being powerful warrior defeated all Ganas which angered Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva then attacked Ganesha himself and slays his head apart from his body.
When Goddess Parvati comes to know of this, enraged she asks Lord Shiva to bring back her son to life. Seeing her anger, and analyzing he has killed his own son, Lord Shiva promisesGoddess Parvati to bring Ganesha back to life. He then asks devas to search for a head of dead person facing north. Even after searching the entire earth they were unable to find such head of a person but that of an elephant. With no choice left, they brought the head of the dead elephant to Lord Shiva who fixed it on Ganesha’s body and brought him to life. And from this day, the day is celebrated as Ganesh Chaturthi.
