THE STORY OF SHREE GIRIJATMAJ FROM MYTHS

With the desire of having Vinayaka as her son Parvati performed penance for 12 years in the caves of Lenyadri. Ganapati was pleaced & gave her the boon She wanted.

On one Bhadrapada Shudh Chaturthi, Parvati scrapped the scraf from her body, mixed it with oil & ointment & formed an idol of Ganesha. She was performing pooja of that idol, suddenly that idol become alive & told Parvati that as desired by her he has taken Avatar in her house. On 11th day he was named as Gunesh (Gunesh means person who keeps three quantities Satva, Raja & Tama under his control).Lord Shiva Shankar gave him the boon that whosoever remembers Ganesha before starting a work, will successfully complete the work.

Ganesha grew up for 15 years at Lenyadri. Demon king Sindhu who knew that his death is in hand of Hanesha, sent demons like Krur, Balasur, Vyomasur, Kshemma, Kushal etc. to kill Ganesh on Lenyadri. Ganapati also performed many bala leelas in this place. Hence, Lenyadri is considered holy.

At the age of Six, Vishwakarma worshipped Ganesha & endowed him with paasa (noose), Parasu (axe), Ankush (hook), & Kamala (Lotus). At the age of seven his Upanayana was performed by Sages Gautama.

Parvati’s second name is Girija, her Aatmaj means son Ganesh is therefore called as Girijatmaj.
