Legends of Elephant- Headed Ganesha’s Birth

 

There are two very strong legends related to the birth of Ganesha. According to one, ParvatiParvatiParvati

made a boy out of clay when she had to take bath in her husband’s absence. Ganesha was given the task of not letting anyone in. While Parvati was taking a bath, Shiva arrived, and Ganesha denied him entry into the house. Angered Shiva then beheaded him. When Parvati found out, she broke into tears. Shiva then asked his troop to get him any head of a living being sleeping in the north direction, and they beheaded an elephant. Thus, Ganesha’s original head was replaced by an elephant’s head. 

 

According to another story, when Parvati was blessed with a son, every God came to meet him except ShaniShaniShani
