Lord Ganesh is revered as the God of good luck. This story from the Ganesh Purana narrates the legend of the birth of Lord Ganesh. One day Goddess Parvati was deeply disturbed by the way Nandi failed to stop Lord Shiva to enter the palace where she was taking bath, as was commanded by her. She understood Nandi being an ardent disciple of Lord Shiva would never go against his will. That is when she created Lord Ganesh using clay and magically infuses life and other celestial powers.
