LENYADRI - GIRIJATMAJA MANDIR

BIRTH OF GANESH

It is the second of the Ashta Vinayaka temples and it has a long legend. It is here Mother Parvathi's penance for 12 long years for the birth of a son bore fruit. According to Ganesh Purana, Mother Parvathi performed tapas here in a cave of Lenyadri for 12 years when Ganesh graced his darsan and promised to be born as her son. Pleased with the boon, she started meditating on Ganesh along with Maheswar eagerly awaiting that auspicious moment. On Bhadrapada Suddha Chaturthi day, she made a clay idol of Ganesh and offered elaborate ritualistic worship. With the progress of her pooja, the clay idol gradually metamorphosed into live Ganesh, exactly in Simhalagna under Swati Nakshatra. Her ecstatic joy defied description. The Maharshis and celestials, who attended the function, blessing the babe enjoined that who-so-ever adore Ganapathy before starting any work, would accomplish it without worry or break. Hurdles run helter-skelter at the mention of Ganesh 'in the inaugural moment itself.
