Lord Ganesha Ji Ganapati Bappa Morya, Mangalmurti Morya.: Birth of Ganesha And Influence in United States


Birth of Ganesha And Influence in United States

Each Purana tells a different story to report the birth of Ganesh. In some of these legends, he was the son born of the Spirit (mânasika putra) of Shiva, but in others, in fact most (Vamana Purana-, Matsya Purana-, Skanda Purana,), is a creation Parvati.

In some stories Vishnuites, Ganesh is regarded as an incarnation of Krishna.

According to the Shiva Purana version, which is the most famous, the wife of Shiva, the Mountaineer (Parvati), was one day disturbed by his lord, who entered the house while she was taking a bath.

Annoyed at not having the personal servant to keep her door, Parvati created a boy out of sandalwood paste that she used for her bath and breathed life into the figure.She then set him to stand guard at her door while she bathed .

When the child claimed to prevent Shiva from entering the premises, it furiously transformed himself in his Rudra form and hurled against the Gana Ganesh. In the fight, the head of Ganesh was determined.

At the sight of misfortune reached his "son", Parvati was inconsolable. Not finding the child's head, Shiva grafted an elephant's head on his body. To make amends, Shiva Ganesh recognized as his son and named him head of all his servants, and it became "Ganapati".

In a similar version, it is said that Nandi was the guardian of apartments Parvati, but also and especially being a servant of Shiva, he could not oppose the will of his master.

A more detailed version describes Shiva sending the army to attack its Gana. But Ganesh routs; Shiva is Brahma who then come peacefully, in the form of a Brahmin, trying to bring the boy to the right. In vain, it is intractable.

Shiva then asks Kârtikeya and Indra, to intervene and raise their armed Ganesh resists victoriously and put to flight the armies, with the support of Kali and Durga, called by Parvati, is furious that his beloved attack son ...

Shiva finally decides to intervene himself and while Vishnu Ganesh fight, he takes treacherously from behind and cut his head ... Parvati revenge is terrible: it creates countless orders Shakti and devour the Gana and Devâ. Terrified, Brahma and Vishnu asked him grace in return requires the Parvati gives life to his son.

It also requires other compensation: now his son will be honored first, before all other gods.

Shiva dispatch emissaries with orders to bring back the head of the first living being looking north, direction deemed auspicious and synonymous with wisdom.

The first creature asleep, his head turned towards the north they encounter an elephant. This report head and Shiva, placing the child's body, he breathes life.

Parvati was overjoyed and embraced her son, the elephant-headed boy Shiva named Ganesha, ie "Master of Gana".

This myth representing Parvati Ganesh born alone, without the intervention of Shiva, J. Herbert notes a curious feature. Indeed, it is her "sweat" the Goddess creates her son. So Parvati sweating!, While Hindu gods, when they take human form, have the characteristic of not sweat, have no shadow and not let the flowers fade they are decorated. Parvati was therefore "humanized" so quite exceptional to give birth to Ganesh.

Many variants of legends about the origin of the elephant-headed Ganesh are identified through more or less ancient texts:

At the behest of the gods who needed a deity capable of removing all obstacles from their path of action and achievement, Shiva himself was born of Parvati in the form of its Gajânana.
According to the Linga-Purana, Ganesh is created by Shiva to overcome the Asura and other enemies of the gods, indeed, Devâ prayed the almighty Shiva to help them, because they were harassed by demons.

Shiva consented, and his mind, brought forth the beautiful and wonderful figure of a child with an elephant's head strong, brandishing a trident in one hand (Ganesh effect is sometimes depicted with a trident). The Gods were pleased with this child, born-the spirit of Shiva, which now protect. Seeing this beautiful child, Parvati put it on his knee and vowed that no company, human or divine, is successful without being previously had dedicated a prayer. Shiva then made him the leader of celestial hordes, the Gana, calling Ganapati, which means Chief Gana.

In another Purana, the Varaha Purana, he is portrayed as a young man growing wonderfully beautiful sparkle front of Shiva absorbed in deep meditation. This mânasika putra, son-born-the spirit of Shiva, was a human boy dazzling. Parvati, upset that the boy was born without his intervention, wished that his head is changed to that of an elephant. However, when she saw the child with an elephant head, she felt a great love for him, and declared that no company, human or divine, would not succeed without a prayer to Ganapati, Shiva had Chief Gana.

Another legend says that Puranic Parvati burning desire to have a child and was involved in Shiva. He asked her to undergo a period of austerity (tapas or tapasya) puñyaka say for a year, and she did. The wise Sanatkumara was subjected to Parvati and various events to ensure the intensity of his desire. Then she heard a voice from heaven telling him to go to his room to fetch his newborn child.

She ran, saw, and could not believe his eyes because he was more beautiful than all the gods together, and his face shone like the sun rising. His joy knew no bounds.

All the gods and goddesses rushed to Mount Kailash, the abode of the divine parents to contemplate that child of glory they gave him their homage and marveled at its beauty.

The nine planets, Navagraha, also came to congratulate the divine couple and their beloved son. One of them, Shani would not look up to the child and asked whether he who lowers his head.

Parvati was annoyed. Shani explained that his wife, jealous, predicted that any person would look with admiration destroyed!

Parvati would not believe it and demanded that all do as Shani and admire the baby. He complied instantly and the head of Ganesh was separated from his body and flew in space to Goloka, the world of Krishna (as originally Ganesha was Krishna himself in human form, according the Brahmavaivarta-Purana).

Parvati cried and wailed loudly and created an uproar. Vishnu, including drama, went immediately on his vehicle Garuda looking for a head to replace that which was lost.

On the banks of the river Pushpabhadra he met a herd of elephants asleep. Choosing a downer whose head was turned towards the north, he cut his and reported. According to one version of the legend, this elephant was actually a Gandharva who hoped to be released from his earthly life to another version says that he is the head of a son of the elephant Airâvata the vehicle the god Indra.

Anyway, Vishnu on his return put the elephant head on the neck of the child Ganesh.

And breathing life into the lifeless body, he presented it to Parvati, who was delighted to have a child with the wisdom and power of an elephant.

Vishnu dressed the child exquisite ornaments suitable to her beauty; Himavan, Parvati's father did the same. Vishnu gathered all the celestial beings and made a cult of the child, giving him eight names by which we would know now:

Vighneshvara Ganesha Heramba, Gajânana, Lambodara, Ekadanta, and Soorpakarna Vinâyaka.

One day for fun, Parvati modeled the image of a child with a head of an elephant, using ointments that covered his body, and brought him to the Ganges. As soon as the waters overwhelmed the child, he was transformed into a splendid results. Dvaimatura was the son-born-two mothers, because Parvati Ganga as each believed that it was their child.

The Suprabhedâgama describes the birth of Ganesh. Shiva and Parvati, visiting the deep forests of the Himalayas, saw a couple of elephants States. For fun, they decided on the spot to do the same, and taking the form of these animals, they joined their turn. Thus was born the elephant-headed Ganesh.

If Ganesha was created by Parvati without the intervention of Shiva, it nevertheless plays a role since it allows Ganesh have an elephant head, he recognizes it as his eldest son (although Kârtikeya already existed) but only after this incident that changed.

The original pre-Vedic Ganesh is also considered to understand the contents of this legend. In fact, before the Aryans, the Dravidian society was matriarchal and people worshiped a feminine form of the deity, the Divine Mother. This trait of civilization was not specific to India and is found both in the Middle East before the Hebrew doctrine imposes a masculine and paternal Divine.

In the legend of Ganesh, Parvati, goddess prévédique native, is an expression of the Divine Mother who actually holds a prominent position, even compared to Shiva.

The operation acquires a Ganesh elephant head makes a boy impetuous and irascible a being of wisdom and spirituality. And this is Shiva, Lord of Yoga, who presides over the transformation. To discover this elephant head, Shiva sent for to the north. But we know that the north (uttaram) is a direction beneficial. The journey north is synonymous journey to enlightenment (deva path = gods). The elephant head has only one reported defense sign after the journey north, it reached the non-dual state.

Ganesh and the river Kaveri

To bring water to arid regions of the South, Sage Agastya, with the blessings of Brahma, Shiva received the holy water which he fills his kamandalu.

He traveled to the south of the country, hoping to find a suitable place to create a river abundant. He thus reached the mountains of Kodagu (Coorg).

Along the way, he hailed a young boy who was passing by. In fact, it was Ganesh in disguise. The sage asked the child to wear carefully water pot while surrounding seek a suitable place where isolation.

Ganesh knew Agastya wanted to create a river where they were seemed appropriate. So he laid the earth's kamandalu wise.

A crow passing by, perched on the rim of the pot. Then returning, Agastya drove the bird in flying, overthrew the kamandalu (photo). Flowing in this small amount of water became the river Kaveri.

The place is considered sacred to the present day, is known as the Talakaveri.

Ganesh and Kubera

Kubera, the god of wealth, was proud of his limitless fortune. One day, he organized a lavish dinner attended by, among other distinguished guests, the divine couple Shiva and Parvati and their son Ganesha.

He was still a child, but when he began to eat, he proved insatiable. Soon other guests were soon to find themselves in front of empty tables. Alas! Does not contain have exhausted the available food, Ganesh began to devour the dishes, furniture and everything contained Alakapuri, the capital of Kubera.

When he had swallowed all the child Ganesh threatened to swallow Kubera himself. Terrified, the god of wealth ran, and fell at the feet of Shiva to implore his help, because the voracious hunger of Ganesh seemed to have no limit.

Shiva's intervention was simple but spectacular. He contented himself with giving his son a handful of toasted cereal grains. It ate and, miraculously, his hunger abated immediately.

This legend tells us that a handful of simple food, given with love and eaten with devotion, is more important and more nutritious than all the property of Kubera made to impress the gods. From another angle, this story shows that we can achieve peace, satisfaction with material possessions. The only way to achieve the fulfillment of consumer is our vasana. Vasana destruction is symbolized by the consumption of roasted rice, because when the rice is cooked, it loses its ability to germinate. Similarly, the seeds of our hidden desires they lose all force and possibility to come back later.

Ganesh and Moon

One day Ganesh received from his followers a lot of cakes. We know his greed. He then swallowed immediately.

Ganesh returning home perched on his horse mouse, it happened that in the twilight of dusk, the mouse suddenly stumbled on a snake. Ganesh fell to the ground.

But he had eaten so much that his stomach too full burst and cakes spread.

Ganesh picked them up and replaced them in his gaping belly (do not look for logic in this story!). As a belt, he grabbed the snake that caused the incident and tied it around his waist (you can also see this belt made of a serpent on numerous representations of Ganesh).

Seeing this show funny, Moon, Chandra laughed.

Ganesh, furious, considered he was offended by the mockery. Of spite, he tore off his right tusk and threw in the face of the moon (which is why Ganesh is usually depicted with broken right tusk).

At the same time, he threw a curse so that it ceases to shine the night she disappeared and the heavens. At that time, the legend says, the full moon shone every night.

Therefore, in the absence of the moon, there was neither night nor moon, nor dusk. Young lovers moaning and wailing; older people grumbled noting that they could not sleep with the sun shining now even at night.

Without the Moon, the gods found life in heaven as unbearable as the humans experienced on earth. As they rushed to Ganesh, imploring him to bring things back to normal.

We know that Ganesh is basically full of goodness, so he acceded to their urgent request but decided that, despite everything, the moon would never shine as before, every night, in all its glory.

It would increase and would decrease, a bright fortnight to fortnight obscure, each of these two periods ending respectively the Full Moon and New Moon.

For this reason, they say, it is not beneficial to look at the moon the birthday of Ganesh, Ganesh Chaturthî (which corresponds to the fourth day of the waxing moon) in the month of Bhadrapad ( in August or early September), because whoever ignores big problems will ...

This superstition still exists today and people are careful to watch the moon on the day of Ganesh Chaturthî. Some very superstitious people even look down, not only on the day of Ganesh Chaturthî, but every fourth day of the waxing moon, to be sure not to miss it!

And if, by any chance, someone sees the moon on this day, then it should start as soon as stones on the house next to his, so that insults back by people defuse the wrath of god!

The meaning of this legend, or at least a sense that we can give is the following: Ganesh riding his rat is the Seeker of Truth, Human Perfection, by way of the vehicle body, mind and intellectual, trying to reach his spiritual goal to finally carry the Truth without limits.

Body, mind and intellect are limited realities. They can not express the Atman.

He who seeks Supreme Realization knows it is almost impossible to understand his experience means "ordinary." That is why we find that the words and deeds of spiritual masters are strange and incomprehensible.

The intellect of man is not engaged in this type of research can not understand what Truth, Ultimate Reality. The moon is the deity that governs the human mind. Moon laughing Ganapati who rides his rat reminds us of the ignorant who mocks the efforts of the spiritual seeker to reach the Truth.

Similarly, ridicule spiritual Masters, Teachers Truth and what they say is detrimental to humanity.

Another legend narrated in the Brahmanda-Purana, Ganesh depicts and Moon. It had lost its luster as a result of the curse of a god.

So that it covers the light, Ganesh placed it on his head as an ornament (tilaka), this form of Bhâlachandra ("He whose forehead is adorned with the Moon"), the god Ganesh is particularly revered by the esoteric sects.

Ganesh and Goddess Parvati

One day, the child Ganesh amused tormenting a cat pulling his tail and rolling on the ground. It is well known that children can harm innocently.

After a moment, he let the cat alone and left, without thinking, Mount Kailash to find his mother Parvati. He found her very ill, covered with wounds and dust.

When he asked what had happened to her, she said it was her fault. Indeed, it was the cat Ganesh martyred.

This story teaches us that all living beings participate of the divine. Hurt a living creature, one of our companions, human or animal, it is hurting God himself.

Ganesh learned this lesson and we also have to learn throughout our lives.

Ganesh and the demon Ravana

One day the demon Ravana undertook a very difficult asceticism (tapas).

Under the effect of this practice, Shiva appeared before him. Ravana asked Shiva that neither favor nor his kingdom itself can never be destroyed or damaged. Shiva gave him a Shiva Lingam, the symbol of His power, and ordered him to return to his kingdom where he would install in a temple, in accordance with appropriate rituals.

At that time only Ravana would become invincible forever. But there was one condition: under no circumstances during the trip, Ravana should remove the Lingam on the ground, because he could then redéplacer.

Ravana overjoyed received the Lingam. However, Devâ (Gods) were afraid of the consequences of Ravana could get power, they also invoked Ganesh before starting anything else. Ganesh promised to help and gave them advice.

Thus Varuna, the god of water, entered Ravana's abdomen, causing intestinal problems that forced him to stop on the way. Writhing in pain but not wanting to put any price on earth by Lingam and Shiva had recommended him, Ravana called a young Brahmin who was passing by and asked him to keep the lingam stone a few moments. It is, of course, that the young Brahmin in question was none other than Ganesh in disguise.

Ravana vanished into the bushes by the roadside, but almost immediately, the young Brahmin called a first, then a second, and finally a third time. Getting no response (Ravana was too busy ...), he put the Lingam on the ground.

When Ravana came back, he tried to regain the Lingam but latter, a colossal poiids, could not be raised from the ground. Enraged, Ravana quarreled with the boy who then resumed his true divine form of Ganesh. Ravana had lost the power that gave him the Lingam. Ganesh could then easily defeat this demon. On a kick, he sent in the sky (photo).

Ravana finally gave his limitations and admit the omnipotence of Ganesh (photo).

The place where the Lingam was deposited is called Gokarna, on the western coast of Karnataka and is revered to this day. See the photo of Ganesh in Gokarna.

This story teaches that the devil always ends up losing, especially when he claims to power.

The Wisdom of Ganesh

Shiva and Parvati playing with their two children and Ganesh Kârtikeya.

The gods had given them a great fruit and each of the children wanted.

The couple explained that their divine nectar of the Supreme Knowledge and Immortality was hidden in the fruit. Since everyone wanted, the one that would get three times around the world and come back first.

Kârtikeya went on his peacock and flew in space, stopping at all the sacred places on the way there and making offerings and prayers.

Ganesh knew that with his portly form which slowed his mount, the mouse would be much slower and could never beat Kârtikeya.

But his wisdom made him find a solution. He turned seven times around his parents, Shiva and Parvati, with great devotion. When they asked him why he did not turn the earth, he replied:

"My parents Shiva and Shakti are the Entire world. Them is in the entire universe. I did not need to go further."

Naturally, he won the fruit (photo).

This story emphasizes the importance of intelligence, which is the custodian Ganesh against the force, speed or physical performance.

Ganesh scribe

A very interesting story about Ganesh is the belief that he was the editor of the scribe Mahabharata.

Sage Vyasa, the author of this epic was informed by Brahma, on which he meditated, he had to ask Ganesh to be the scribe to whom he would dictate the epic verse form.

Ganesh Brahma appeared before which he agreed but on condition that Vyasa speak without interruption.

Vyasa formulated its own requirement: Ganesh should understand every word, every thought and its implications before writing.

When Vyasa saw that Ganesh (photo) had finished writing a verse (he used his broken tusk of writing instrument), he dictated in another with meanings so complex that Ganesh had to stop and think about it.

This gave Vyasa time to compose some verses and mentally recite when Ganesh was ready ...

This story teaches us that the Mahabharata should not be read in a hurry. We must understand and "digest", we must listen with patience and reflection.

In fact, says the Mahabharata belief should not be read, but only listened, and in small doses! It is only on this condition that the depth of meaning hidden in the events narrated in the poem appears gradually.

Ganesh and Shiva

It is said that no act of war or peace, no daily action can succeed before Ganesh having previously been honored.

This is valid not only for humans but also for celestial beings.

When Ganesh appeared as a son born of the spirit of Shiva, it decreed that Ganesh should be invoked with prayers for anyone who wants to ensure the success of its business. Even invocations to other deities have no effect if they were not preceded by a prayer to Ganesh.

So when Shiva went to confront the demons of the city of Tripura, he forgot his own rule and ran in great haste. However, riding on his chariot, a nail wheel broke and the tank was immobilized.

Aback that such an incident happen to him, Shiva stopped and thought. He suddenly realized that he had forgotten to pray Ganesh, where this impediment ... He then invoked the name of his son and was able to leave and successfully win the battle of Tripurâtanka.

How Ganesh broke his right tusk

There are several legends explain how Ganesh broke his defense, so it is also called Ekadanta "He who has only one tusk."

The first legend (in the Brahmanda Purana-) refers to the battle against Parasurama. Parasurama was one of the incarnations (avatara) of Vishnu, born on earth to teach wisdom to the ruling class, the Kshatriya, who had become arrogant and oppressed people. As a human on earth, he meditated on Shiva and obtained the divine ax, Parashu. This helped in the fight against all these rogue princes who were the prey of demons.
Deeply grateful to Shiva, he then went to Mount Kailash to greet his guide. Ganesh, who guarded the entrance to the apartment while his Father did not allow him to enter, saying he needed to wait for permission from Shiva.

Parasurama thought: "I am a devotee of Shiva, such authorization does not apply to me."

But Ganesh obstinately refuse passage, Parasurama, usually carried mood, struck violently defending Ganesh with his ax and broke it.

Shiva and Parvati then appeared and blamed that Parasurama worshiped Ganesh for his forgiveness and blessing. Ganesh was then called Ekadanta "He who has only one tusk."

According to another legend, Ganesh broke his own defense in his fight against Gajamukhâsura (the elephant-headed Asura). This demon followed severe austerities on the advice of Shukracharya, the guru of Asura, so he got invincible powers of Shiva. But use these powers to harass the gods who then rushed to ask for help Ganesh.

It did not hesitate to battle against this demon. But during the fight, he realized that the powers of the devil made him invincible. Ganesh then broke his right tusk and threw Gajamukhâsura on the prosecutor to turn into a mouse. He then returned to the back of the mouse and made his horse and keeping under control.

According to the Puranas another story, the Ganesh rat was actually the Gandharva Krauncha. One day in the court of Indra, the king of Devâ, Krauncha, insulted the Sage Vamadeva who retaliated by turning it into big rat. This rat, according to its nature, entered the Ashram of Sage Parâchara and caused major damage in the house. The Rishi then invoked Vinâyaka (another name for Ganesh) to safeguard his modest home. Ganesh appeared, the rat was his vehicle and subdued.

A legend Purana attributes the loss of defense in a fight between Ganesh and Shiva himself.

Finally we return to the story of Ganesh and the Moon referred to above.

As we can see, regardless of the version of the Puranic stories, why Ganesh has chosen the rat as his vehicle is that it allowed him to keep his control, with a capacity of rat nuisance n ' is demonstrated.

Ganesh and Lord Vishnu

One day, Vishnu Shankha Valamburi noticed that his had disappeared, that the tracassa. After a moment, he heard the deep sound of a conch and immediately recognized that it was hers. It sounded somewhere near Mount Kailash.

He meditated on Shiva appeared to him and said that he wanted her shell, it first had to address a prayer to Ganesh Valamburi (as Ganesh with the trunk pointing to the right).

Vishnu Ganesh executed and sent the shell to its rightful owner who was delighted to find it.

One can surely find other legends.
