History of Ganesh Chaturthi:-
According to mythological beliefs on Ganesh Chaturthi, one day Lord Shiva went to a place called Bhogavati. Goddess Parvati was alone on Kailash. At that time, a desire for children arose in her mind. She collected the filth of her body. By making the body of a child out of that filth, his life was respected. Devi told the child that from today you are my son. Now I am going inside the cave for a bath. Do not let any man come in.
By obeying Goddess Parvati, Ganesh started guarding outside the cave. Then Lord Shiva returned from Bhogavati and came to Kailash. When Lord Shiva wanted to go inside the cave, Ganesh blocked his path. After getting stopped by Ganesha, Lord Shiva got angry at him. He told Ganesha that let me go inside or else I will separate your head from your body. In spite of this, Ganesha stood by stopping the way of Lord Shiva.
Lord Shiva, enraged by this, used his trident and removed Ganesha’s head from his body. When Goddess Parvati came to know about this incident, she came to the weeping Lord Shiva and said – O Lord, in your absence I created a child from my scum. Why did you cut his head? When Lord Shiva came to know of this, he ordered his Ganas that whoever mother was sleeping back towards her child, bring her baby’s head. In the forest, an elephant was sleeping back towards her child. Lord Shiva’s Ganas reached Kailash with a baby elephant’s head. Then Lord Shiva resurrected Ganesh Chaturthi by applying the elephant’s head, and since that day Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated.
