Summary: This story tells how Parvati creates Ganesha all on her own as her son to stand guard at her door. Because Parvati tells him to let no one in, he stops Shiva from entering and fights back not only Shiva, but Brahma and the other gods. Parvati, enraged at the attacks on her son, manifests as Kali and Durga. Shiva finally beheads the boy, making Parvati even more enraged, but Shiva replaces the boy's head with an elephant head, and so he becomes the Ganesha that we know.
