Why We Must Worship Lord Ganesha

There are many legends about Ganesha, including tales about his birth, his devotion to his parents, and his designation as the leader of the Ganas or army. The unusual explanation for how he acquired the elephant cranium is quite fascinating. We cannot, however, envision our dear little God with any other head. It is believed that he is the most significant god and that he should be worshiped before all others.

Worship Lord Ganesha

I recall the following explanation for why Ganesha is worshipped first. Once, all gods in paradise were unable to determine who was the most revered of them all. It turned into a heated debate, and they desired an accurate representation. The vacant position was then filled through a contest.

The competition was as follows: whoever circum navigated the three continents would Ganadhipati. The other gods departed, but our diminutive deity, whose body is disproportionate and whose vehicle resembles a mouse, was despondent. He knew he had no chance of succeeding. But we do have Naradamuni, who gave Ganesha a guru mantra.

Ganesha was the first to manifest everywhere, while the other gods were still on their way. At the conclusion of the race, Brahma questioned Ganesha about the miraculous occurrence. Ganesha responded that he had circumnavigated his parents Shiva and Parvati three times because their parents are their entire universe. He also stated that the entire universe lies at their feet, so performing pradakshina around them is equivalent to circumnavigating the globe. This impressed the gods, who bestowed upon him the Ganadhipathi.
