While bathing, Goddess Parvati fashioned Ganesha from the soap suds on her body, breathed life into him and placed him at the entrance as her guard. Lord Shiva happened to arrive at the spot suddenly, stopped by Ganesha. Indignant at this affront, Shiva cut off Ganesha's head and Parvati insisted that the boy be brought back to life.
