History of Lord Ganesha

lord of success is lord ganesh

Lord of Success is Lord Ganesh.

Sometimes is called "Ganesha" or "Lord Ganesha".

   

History of Lord Ganesh

Lord Ganesh

   Lord Ganesh is son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the "panchayatana puja".

   

*Significance of the Ganesha Form*

     Ganesha's head symbolizes the "Atman" or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies"Maya" or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha's left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties.

    The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the "Mahabharata". The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The "laddoo" (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the "Atman". His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. The snake that runs round his waist represents energy in all forms. And he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse.

*How Ganesha Got His Head*

    The story of the birth of this zoomorphic deity, as depicted in the "Shiva Purana", goes like this: Once goddess Parvati, while bathing, created a boy out of the dirt of her body and assigned him the task of guarding the entrance to her bathroom. When Shiva, her husband returned, he was surprised to find a stranger denying him access, and struck off the boy's head in rage. Parvati broke down in utter grief and to soothe her, Shiva sent out his squad ("gana") to fetch the head of any sleeping being who was facing the north. The company found a sleeping elephant and brought back its severed head, which was then attached to the body of the boy. Shiva restored its life and made him the leader ("pati") of his troops. Hence his name 'Ganapati'. Shiva also bestowed a boon that people would worship him and invoke his name before undertaking any venture.

     However, there's another less popular story of his origin, found in the "Brahma Vaivarta Purana": Shiva asked Parvati to observe the"punyaka vrata" for a year to appease Vishnu in order to have a son. When a son was born to her, all the gods and goddesses assembled to rejoice on its birth. Lord Shani, the son of Surya (Sun-God), was also present but he refused to look at the infant. Perturbed at this behaviour, Parvati asked him the reason, and Shani replied that his looking at baby would harm the newborn. However, on Parvati's insistence when Shani eyed the baby, the child's head was severed instantly. All the gods started to bemoan, whereupon Vishnu hurried to the bank of river Pushpabhadra and brought back the head of a young elephant, and joined it to the baby's body, thus reviving it.

*Ganesha, the Destroyer of Pride*      Ganesha is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride. He is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations. "All Hindus worship Ganesha regardless of their sectarian belief," says D N Singh in "A Study of Hinduism". "He is both the beginning of the religion and the meeting ground for all Hindus."

*Ganesh Chaturthi

*The devotees of Ganesha are

known as 'Ganapatyas', and the festival to celebrate and glorify him is called Ganesh Chaturthi.

Amazing Thailand : History of Emerald Buddha

posted on 06 Mar 2013 22:21 by cool-stuff-online directory Asian, Fashion

Emerald Buddha in Wat Phra Kaeo

     * Emerald Buddha* –"Phra Kaeo Morakot", or official name พระพุทธมหามณีรัตนปฏิมากร => "Phra Phuttha Maha Mani Rattana Patimakon" is Very Famous of the Kingdom of Thailand and Very Well-known in the World. Phra Kaeo Morakot is a figurine of the sitting Buddha made of Green jadeite rather than emerald clothed in Gold, and Tall about 45 cm. It is kept in the Very Famous Place and Very Well-known in the Grand Palace. (Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok, Thailand)

   

     According to the Legend, the Emerald Buddha was created in India in 43 BC by Nagasena in the city of Pataliputra (today's Patna). The legends state that after remaining in Pataliputra for three hundred years, it was taken to Sri Lanka to save it from a civil war. In 457, King Anuruth of Burma sent a mission to Ceylon to ask for Buddhist scriptures and the Emerald Buddha, in order to support Buddhism in his country.  

         These requests were granted, but the ship lost its way in a storm during the return voyage and landed in Cambodia. When the Thais captured Angkor Wat in 1432 the Emerald Buddha was taken to Ayutthaya, Kamphaeng Phet, Laos and finally Chiang Rai, where the ruler of the city hid it.      

       Cambodian historians recorded capture of the Buddha statue in their famous"Preah Ko Preah Keo" legend. However, some art historians describe the Emerald Buddha as belonging to the Chiang San Style of the 15th century AD, which would mean it is actually of Lannathai Origin.

     

 Historical sources indicate that the statue surfaced in Northern Thailand in the LannaThai Kingdom in 1434. One account of its discovery tells that lightning struck a pagoda in a temple in Chiang Rai, after which, something became visible beneath the stucco.  

        The Buddha was dug out, and the people believed the figurine to be made of emerald, hence its name.  According to a less fanciful explanation, "emerald" here simply means "green coloured" in Thai.

             King Sam Fang Kaen of Lannathai wanted it in his capital,Chiang Mai, but the elephant carrying it insisted, on three separate occasions, on going instead to Lampang. This was taken as a divine sign and the Emerald Buddha stayed in Lampang until 1468, when it was finally moved to Chiang Mai, where it was kept at Wat Chedi Luang.

      The Emerald Buddha remained in Chiang Mai until 1552, when it was taken to Luang Prabang, then the capital of the Lao Kingdom of Lan Xang. Some years earlier, the crown prince of Lan Xang Setthathirath had been invited to occupy the vacant throne of Lannathai.

       However, Prince Setthathirath also became king of Lan Xang when his father, Photisarath, died. He returned home, taking the revered Buddha figure with him. In 1564, King Setthathirath moved it to his new capital at Vientiane.

           In 1779, the Thai General Chao Phraya Chakri put down an insurrection, captured Vientiane and returned the Emerald Buddha to Siam, taking it with him to Thonburi. After he became KingRama I of Thailand, he moved the Emerald Buddha with great ceremony to its current home in Grand Palace (Wat Phra Kaew on 22 March 1784 ) in the Main Building of the Temple ,the "Ubosoth.
