    The story behind the birth of Vakratunda

    Once there was a demon named "Matsara" was born out of the nonsense thoughts of Indra, the king of Gods.

    and obtained the boon of fearlessness from Him. By obtaining the boon from Shiva, he became so powerful that he went on conquering all the three worlds. He became the king of Gods and taken the place with the help of the guidance given by most eminent  Demon’s teacher Sukracharya.
     
    The defeated Gods ran to Kailasha and there they found Shiva in a deep meditation. They prayed to him  for the protection. On hearing the mission of Gods, Demon Matsara went to Kailasha and he started fighting with Shiva.
     
    At that time, Gods were very upset and afraid. They were puzzled and don’t know what to do next. Fortunately DattatreyaDattatreyaDattatreya

    came there. He advised the Gods to invoke the grace of Vakratunda.
     
    All the Gods did severe penance along with Shiva and pleased with their prayers, Vakratunda appeared and assured them that he would slay the Demon Matsara. The demon was so terrified at the sight of angry Ganesha in the avatar of Vakratunda that he surrendered to his divine feet. Vakratunda’s anger sublimed by viewing the way Demon Matsara repented and his readiness to return back all the kingdoms that he had won. Vakratunda thus restored the lost splendor and kingdoms of all the kings and gods.
