Ganesh Jayanti fasting story
It is told in the mythology that once Mother Parvati also went for bath. During the bath, he made an effigy out of the rubbish and breathed life into it. This child was named Ganesh.

Shiva beheaded Ganapati
Ganapati was guarding the door with full devotion. Only then Lord Shiva came to meet Mother Parvati but child Ganesha stopped him from going inside. Bholenath tried many times to convince Bal Ganesha but Ganpati did not budge from the toss. After a long time, Mahadev got angry and beheaded Ganesha with his trident. After this Shiva went inside.
Elephant’s head applied to Ganapati
Lord Shiva told Mother Parvati that a boy was not allowing him to enter, because of which he beheaded him. Mother Parvati started mourning after hearing this. Goddess Parvati told that it was not an ordinary balcony but my son Ganesha, after which Lord Shiva put an elephant’s head on Ganesha’s trunk. In this way Ganapati got life again and was called Gajmukh.
