We all know about sage Naradhar.
He will always have a thamboora(musical instrument) in his hands and always keep
repeating the words " Narayana Narayana ".
One day he went to Kailash the abode of Lord Siva
with a mango fruit in his hand.
There Lord Siva was with his whole family, His wife
Parvathy, Vinayaka elder son and Muruga ,younger son.
As Naradha entered Kailash, Siva smiled at Naradha and
blessed him. He also asked about the mango fruit.
Naradha replied ,"This is a special fruit. I would like to
give it to one of your sons. But it should not be
eaten as half . So to whom shall I give the whole fruit?"
Siva immediately turned towards his sons " Now you two
have to decide. Who will take this fruit?"
But both of them wanted to have. so it was decided to
conduct a competition . And the competition is , whom so
ever goes round the world and comes first will get the
we all know Vinayaga is huge and will take a long time to
go around the world.. So every one thought that
Muruga will win the fruit as he has an extra advantage
of having peacock . He can use this as vehicle to go
around the world.
So, with this in mind , Muruga boarded the peacock and
Even without thinking for a moment Vinayaga said " My
world is nothing more than my parents. And as he said
he went around his parents and demanded the mango."
Both Shiva and Parvathy accepted Vinayaga's logic and
declared him as victorious. Of course they were also happy.
Now even before Muruga came Vinayaga ate the fruit.
True. Parents are supreme.
