Fact Behind Broken Tusk of Lord Ganesha

 

What is the real reason behind Ganesha's broken tooth?

 

There are several myths and stories about Lord Ganesha’s broken tusk but here are two main reasons described as follows:-

In Translate and write a Poem dictated by Saint Vyasa

In the first part of the great epic poem Mahabharta, it is written that the saint Vyasa said GaneshaGaneshaGanesha
The guardian deity of Hindus, also known as the Ganapati (The God of all groups) is the son of Lord Shiva ...
to translate the poem as he dictated it to him. Lord Ganesha agreed, but only the bet that Sage Vyasa recite the poem nonstop, without stopping. The saint in his turn, posed the bet that Ganesha would not only have to write, but would have to deem everything that he heard before writing it down. In this way, sage Vyasa might recuperate a bit from his continuous talking by simply reciting a difficult poetry which Lord Ganesha could not understand. The dictation began, but in the rush of writing lord Ganesha's feather pen broke down. He broke off a tusk and used it as a pen so that translation could proceed without interruption.

After some days of writing, the stylus of Ganesha broke, but he did not stop his writing. He broke off one of his tusks and continued writing with it. Symbolically, this clarifies that any amount of retraction is not too much to gain intelligence.
 

In the Fight with Parashuram

The story behind Lord Ganesha's broken tusk is detailed in this portion from the Upodghata Pada of the Brahmanda Purana. The axe - wielding incarnation of VishnuVishnuVishnu
Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
, Parashuramahad defeated his enemy Kartavirya Arjuna successfully and the king associated with him. So Parashurama wanted to thank lord ShivaShivaShiva

for giving him the power to fight against these enemies and he went to Mount Kailash to pay his faith to Shiva, but Lord Ganesha stopped him, saying his father was sleeping along with his mother. He did not want Parashurama intruding on them in case they might be engaged in erotic metier. Parashurama had become enraged that he was being stomped to my lord Shiva. Thus he started battling with Ganesha. Lord Ganesha was winning handily, but then Parashurama threw his axe at Ganesha and Ganesha could not fight back against it because the axe was gifted by Lord Shiva.

The Axe had been given to him by his father Lord Shiva. Ganesha became eager of meaning it not to go in vain. Hence he recieved tha axe with his left tusk (Tooth). Sliced off by the axe, the tusk fell on the ground, covered with blood like a mountain that fell on the ground when hit by Indra's levin.
