Symbolism of the events happened

Dirt is symbolic of ignorance and Shiva is symbolic of the Supreme Innocence, Peace and Knowledge. So when Ganesha obstructs the path of Shiva, this means that ignorance, which is an attribute of the head, does not recognize knowledge. Then knowledge has to overcome ignorance. This is the symbolism behind Shiva chopping off the boy's head.

And why the elephant head?

 Elephant represents both gyan shakti and karma shakti. The principle qualities of the elephant are wisdom and effortlessness. The enormous head of the elephant signifies Wisdom and Knowledge. Elephants don't walk around obstacles, neither do they stop at them. They just remove them and keep walking straight on  signifying effortlessness. So, when we worship Lord Ganesha these elephant qualities within us are kindled and we take on these qualities.

His large ears - like winnowing baskets - sift truth from untruth, and recall the Vedic axiom that learning may only take place at the feet of the guru. A tantric interpretation of this idea is that learning can only take place when one has quelled the internal dialogue and learnt to listen attentively to the world as it is, rather than how one would like it to be. 



To Ganeshas trunk is attributed the quality of discrimination - the primary quality required for any kind of spiritual progression. The elephant uses its trunk to perform both delicate and brutal tasks. Ganesha's trunk may also represent the root-mantra OM.

Ganesha's big belly represents generosity and total acceptance. Ganesha's upraised hand, depicting protection, means, "Fear not , I am with you," and his lowered hand, palm facing outwards means "unending giving as well as an invitation to bow down symbolic of the fact that we will all dissolve into earth one day". Ganesha also has a single tusk which signifies one-pointedness. Even the implements Ganesha wields are symbolic. He carries in his hands, the 'Ankush' (signifies awakening) and the 'Paasa' (signifies control). With awakening, a lot of energy is released, which without proper control, can go haywire.

Hello friends!!!!!!!

Story about Chintamani Temple, Theur


The Mudgala Purana narrates:King Abhjit & queen Gunavati did penance for several years on advice of sage Vaishampayan & got a son named as Gana. Gana popularly called as Ganaraja.  A strong, but greedy and hot-headed warrior king, Gana pleases the god Shiva ' Ganesha's father with his worship. Shiva grants Gana the kingship of the three worlds ' heaven, earth and underworld and decreed that Gana could not be killed by anything that possessed any of the three gunas. Once, Gana and his entire arrives at the hermitage of the sage Kapila, who owned the wish-granting jewel Chintamani

Sage Kapila welcomed Ganaraja & invited for lunch along with his sena(army).

King of gods Indra had given sage Kapila a jewel called Chintamani. With its help the sage fed the entire army with good food. Being impressed by the power of the jewel, greedy Ganaraja asked sage Kapila to give the jewel to him. When sage Kapila refused to give the jewel, Ganaraja took away from him by force

Sage Kaplia was disappointed. Goddess Durga advice Kapila to worship Lord Ganesha & in boom asked for the Chintamani.

 Kapila, a devotee of Ganesha, prays to Ganesha to retrieve the gem. Ganesha with his army appears in Gana's dream; one of his soldiers cuts Gana's head. Gana wakes up and marches towards Kapila's hermitage with his army, intending to slay the sage. Abhijit tries to dissuade his son and advises him to return Chintamani to the sage, but in vain. Gana starts to destroy the hermitage. Ganesha's shakti ("power") - the goddess Siddhi appears and creates a thousand-armed warrior Laksha, who destroys Gana's army while Ganesha himself beheads the arrogant prince. Ganesha returns the jewel to Kapila, however, the sage chooses to have his Lord instead of the jewel itself. So, Ganesha stays on in Theur with Kapila, taking the name of the jewel Chintamani.
Ganesha saying that even a small gem like this could cause trouble, as wealth  is the root of many problems in this world.

Sage Kapila worshipped Lord Ganesha. From that time Lord Ganesha was also called as Chintamani-Vinayaka. This village is also called as Kadamba Tirtha because the battle between Lord Ganesha & Ganaraja took place near Kadamba tree.

 On every fourth lunar day after the full moon, Morya used to visit the Theur temple. According to a story, as per his guru's orders, Morya performed penance at Theur by observing a strict fast for 42 days, within this period, he is believed to have "divine revelations".Ganesha is believed to have appeared in the form of a tiger to Morya and granted him siddhi (spiritual powers).

Another Story

King of gods Indra was attracted towards Sage Gautam's beautful wife Ahilya. Once the sage was out for bath, God Indra in disguise of sage Gautam had pleasure with Ahilya. On returning to hermitage, sage Gautam by his inner power realised the fact. Seething with rage sage Gautam cursed God Indra. Because of the curse God Indra had thousands of holes in his body. God Indra pleaded for mercy. Sage Gautam asked him to worship Lord Ganesha to get rid of the curse.
The god-king Indra worshipped Ganesha here under the Kadamba tree to get rid of the sage Gautama's curse. The place was thus known as Kadamaba-Nagar, the town of Kadamba trees.
