People are eagerly getting ready for the Diwali festival, which is in a few short days. As Lakshmi-Ganesh is worshipped at home, the celebration entails lighting lamps, eating food prepared at home, and serving sweets.
In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha is the first person worshipped on all special occasions. The mythology describes Mother Parvati creating a boy by the name of Ganesha, who was forbidden from entering her home.
Feeling furious, Lord Shiva used his trident to sever Ganesh’s neck before entering. Enraged, Goddess Parvati declared that should her husband fail to resurrect her son, she would destroy the planet.
She rejected the Lord Shiva’s attempts to persuade her. Bring the head of a sleeping child to Ganesha, Lord Vishnu asked Lord Garuda to do.
An elephant and her young were found sleeping together after a protracted search. With that, Lord Garuda handed Lord Shiva the child’s head. After giving Ganesha life, Lord Shiva placed his head on him.
Additionally, he bestowed upon him the blessing that the worship of Lord Ganesha would always come first in any puja conducted. In keeping with his belief that peaches would flourish and people would succeed in their various endeavors, Lord Vishnu bestowed upon Lord Ganesha the title of Mangal Murti.
As such, before we perform any task, we must worship Lord Ganesha; only then will the task be accomplished.
