​Parents are your world​

For clinching the title of ‘pratham pujya’ or ‘first to be worshiped’, the winner would be the first to complete 3 rounds of the world. Ganesha won by taking 3 rounds around his parents — calling them his ‘world’.

​Do all tasks with focus and complete attention​

When sage Ved Vyasa saw Lord Ganesha eating his meal with all his focus and not being distracted by the loud music in the background, he knew only someone like Ganesha can be fit for writing the epic Mahabharata.

​Power of sacrifice​

In order to continue writing the epic Mahabharata without any break, Lord Ganesha sacrificed his own tooth for the noble cause, earning the respectful title of ‘Ekdant’.

​Forgiveness is the ultimate virtue​

Lord Ganesha has not just written the Mahabharata, but also learned the virtue of forgiveness and practiced it, as taught by Lord Krishn.

​Encouraging maternal feeling in others​

It is believed Bal Ganesh was also like a son to Goddess Radha, who did not have a child of her own. She showered her love on little Ganesha.

​Bonding with relatives​

Lord Ganesha is also widely appreciated for his beautiful bond with his mama or maternal uncle — Lord Vishnu. The two would get together to create mischievous situations that would result in the downfall of evil and establishment of positivity and joy.

​Never be greedy or haughty​

When a haughty Kuber (God of Wealth) threw a grand feast to show off his wealth to the world, he was shocked when he could not satisfy the hunger of Lord Ganesha — who ended up eating all the food, jewels and even parts of the palace. It brought Kuber to the realization that his arrogance reduced him to nothing.
