It is believed that many years ago, when Mata Parvati was curious about a child who obeyed her orders, she made Ganesha out of mud and clay, and after donating her life, made him stand on the guard of the house. Unaware of the matter, he slashed this child’s head with his trident and severed his neck from the body. Mother Parvati was very angry with this and regretted her mistake, somehow after getting the name Kashish, the glass of the elephant was attached to her body, and since then Lord Ganesha was given the name of Lambodar. All the gods blessed him, including the boon he would be worshipped first.
