How the green grass (Arugam pullu) became the favourite of Lord Ganesha A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?


A?A?A? Here is a storyA?A?A? which tells us the importance of green grass.Once there was a kingdom called Mithilapuri.The King Janakamaharajan ruled the kingdom well.He used to feed the people whoever comes to him.But he had a bad nature that he never used to believe in God.
A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A? Lord Ganesha wanted to test the king.So he came in disguise of a poor Brahmin with lepersy disease all over his bodyA?A?A? in a very bad condition.The king saw the brahmin and asked his son to feed the brahmin.The brahmin was given lots of food ,but that was not sufficient to satisfy his hunger.
A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A? The King was not knowing how to please the Brahmin. So he told him politely to go to some other house where he could satisfy his hunger. So the Brahmin enters a poor manA?a??A?s house and askA?A?A? the couple there who were doing puja to give him food.A?A?A? The couple were feeling bad as they had nothing other than the green grass which they offeredA?A?A? Lord Ganesha.The Brahmin asked them to give that to him as he chewed the grass his hunger disappeared.
A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A? The poor man and wife came to know that was Ganesha himself who came there.They got his vision.and were showered with wealth.Meanwhile the whole kingdom was becoming prosperous.The king came in search of the Brahmin and saw that was really Lord Ganesh who came to him to test him as he was not believing in God.Lord Ganesha told the king that to him even the green grass given with affection is more than enough than rich food.The king realeased his mistake and there after started believing in God.
A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A? Hi Ilanders this story is from Vinayaka pooranam. A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?

(on behalf of AbHa and www.arugam.info)
The above story was actually found by our automatic netfinder system.
The funny symbols on your screen mean that you donA?a??a??t have Hindi language installed on the machine – no sweat!
We translated it for you.
The word A?a??A?ArugamA?a??A? is -as far as we know- fairly unique in the word.

Therefore, we are lucky to get very few wrong messages, i.e articles, places or events which do not refer to A?a??E?ourA?a??a?? Arugam, Bay.
However, we decided to leave this A?a??E?errorA?a??a?? post in its pace, in the long achieves of the period 2004- today which we covered.

Many stories have never been read, because they never made the front page of Arugam.info.
To improve readership, and to make things easy for everyone, we installed an email button on the right hand side.
Whenever ANY article is written and posted on our site: You will get a summary into your mail box.
The above story from India was simply too good to ignore – although it has nothing to do with Arugam Bay.

A?a??A?But has it???
Maybe there is a connection:
A?a??A?ArugamA?a??A?, Great Elephants, a Hindu god, the Green Bay and the Green Grass?
All o
n the beautiful East Coast of Sri Lanka, often mentioned as Tamil Home Land together with our islandA?a??a??s Northern parts.
What do you think?
Delete or post such articles and thoughts?

Further remark:
www.arugam.info always wishes to stay out of any religion, but at time itA?a??a??s nice to learn something of other believers.
For example, Lord Ganesha stands for:
A?a??A?The God of knowledge and the remover of obstacles A?a??A?
And no matter what we call him/it:
The Bay, as well as the Nation as a whole would certainly welcome any such person, specially in such troubled, war timesA?a??A?
Ganesha (Sanskrit: A?A?a??A?A?A?A?A?a??A?A?A?; GaA?A?a??eA?a??a; listen (helpA?A?info Dramamine buy australia )), also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh and also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon.[5] His image is found throughout India.[6] Hindu sects worship him regardless of other affiliations.[7] Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.[8]Although he is known by many other attributes, GaneshaA?a??a??s elephant head makes him easy to identify.[9] Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles[10] and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles (Vighnesha, Vighneshvara),[11] patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom.[12] He is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions.[13] Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography.Ganesha emerged as a distinct deity in clearly recognizable form in the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta Period, although he inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors.[14] His popularity rose quickly, and he was formally included among the five primary deities of Smartism (a Hindu denomination) in the 9th century. A sect of devotees called the Ganapatya, (Sanskrit: A?A?a??A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?A?; gA?A?A?A?a??apatya), who identified Ganesha as the supreme deity, arose during this period.[15] The principal scriptures dedicated to Ganesha are the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgala Purana, and the Ganapati Atharvashirsa.
