Ganesha Lord
Ganesha (also known as Ganapathy or Vinayagar or Gajaanan or Pillaiyar) He is
the elder son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi with an elephant head and
human body. Ganesha is the most popular and superior deity in Hindu religion
who provides wisdom and success. He is also known as the God of Beginnings so
people worship him first before starting any rituals and he is the remover of
all the hurdles. Parvathi created Ganesha with
sandalwood and gave him life. She sent him as a guard while she was bathing.
Lord Shiva returned home at that time and Ganesha hasn’t allowed him to enter. After
a heated discussion, Lord Shiva ordered the bhuta-ganas to defeat Ganesha, but they all
failed. Shiva was very angry and he severed Ganesha’s head. After knowing this
incident, Parvathi became furious and decided to destroy the entire world. On
seeing this, Lord Shiva promised her to give back her child Ganesha a new life.
Shiva ordered his followers to bring the head of the first creature whose head must
be facing North. They could bring only a head of an elephant. Lord Shiva placed
the head on Ganesha’s body and gave him life and declared that Ganesha is his
son and he must be the superior of Gods and everyone must worship him first.      Lord
Ganesha’s vehicle is the mouse or rat.  In the court of Lord Indra,
a musician god Gandharv, known as Kroncha stepped on the foot of a Muni Vamadeva.
He got angry on Kroncha for doing that and cursed him to become a mouse. This
mouse tortures everyone and destroys everything in Rishi Paraswar’s ashram,
there Lord Ganesha caught the mouse. It begged for mercy and asked for
forgiveness. Lord Ganesha accepted him and used as his vehicle.  Ganesh
Chaturthi (or Vinayaga Chaturthi) is one of the important festivals
to honor Lord Ganesha.   Ganesha
loves sweets and fruits so his devotees offer him modhaka and laddu mostly.
People worship him with any fragrant flowers, durva grass (or Bermuda grass or
Arugampul) and Calotropis flower(or Erukkam flower) Slokam’s
