Lesser Known Facts About Ganesh Chaturthi
Lord Ganesh is known to be the 'God of Gods', and he is loved and adored as a special God. To honour the Lord of good beginnings and prosperity, Hindus have a ten-day celebration around the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi.
How it started: We cannot just get over his divinity as well as cuteness, and you will not believe that along with devotees around the world, Ganesh has a vast fan following! Ganesh Chaturthi remained a family celebration for the Peshwas, as he was the family deity of them. Bal Gangadhar Tilak revived the festival, and from then the annual wisdom is observed making the celebration of the birth of the elephant-headed Ganesh, the God of prosperity and knowledge for long ten days.
'Ekdanta' Ganesh: We all know about the elephant head story of Ganesh, but do you know why he has one-tooth? There are several legends but according to Brahmavart Purana, Parashurama, one of the great sage once visited Kailash Mountain for Lord Shiva. Little Ganesh did not allow him to meet as Lord Shiva was meditating at that time. Parashuram got angry, and he attacked Ganesh with an axe given by Lord Shiva himself. To respect the power of the weapon that his father had given, Ganesh took the attack on his tooth, and since then he is called 'Ekadanta' (one tooth).
Tale of the banana bride: There is a tale in West Bengal that once Maa Durga asked her son Ganesh during devouring food that, what if his wife does not give him enough food. By hearing that question, Ganesh went to cut a banana tree and gave it to his mother saying, it's her daughter-in-law. Till today during Durga Puja in West Bengal, the banana tree is wrapped in a saree and adorned with vermillion and is laced on the right side of Lord Ganesha as his wife, and without taking the 'Banana Bride' or 'Kola Bou' to the Ganges for a shower, Durga Puja does not begin.
Ganesh is adored as a deity: Not only by the Hindus, but the Buddhist to worship Lord Ganesh. In countries like Tibet, China and Japan, Ganesh is revered in the name of 'Vinayaka'. He is seen as the God of wisdom and enlightenment, and who will not adore his sweet-looking deity.
