OJHAR - VIGNESWARA MANDIR

ANTlQUITY OF THE KSHETRA

The glory of this holy kshetra is vividly described in Mudgala Purana, and according to it Ganesh was incarnated as the son of Parshva and Deepavatsala in the-,dim past to suppress danava krityas of the dreadful demons and restore Dharma on earth. The scene of action was laid in this region and called then by the name of Hemavathi. It was ruled by Abhinandana. He performed a great sacrifice for Jagat Kalyana on a grandiose scale. Devendra, ever conscious of his power felt that Abhinandana was doing that yagna with a view to- depriving him of his post. Soon he created a powerful giant called Kaala to create obstacles and spoil the yagna. Utilising the Satanic forces, he created havoc and succeeded in stopping it abruptly. Bloated with ego, he destroyed similar yagna performed by sages then. He was a veritable Yama to every righteous man. And obtained the apt title of Vigna - the trouble maker and creator of obstacles. When he continued his asura krityas, the world shook and Bhudevi wailed piteously. Evil danced naked and virtue was flayed ruthlessly and stamped down. Then the righteous people unable to bear the tortures prayed to Ganesh for protection and establishment of Dharma. He assured relief soon.
