Here’s Why and under what condition did Bhagwan Ganesh write Mahabharata?

Ganesh ji had a condition that Maharishi would not take rest even for a moment in storytelling. If he stayed even for a moment, Ganesha would stop writing there. Maharishi agreed to him and also put a condition of himself that Ganesh ji will not write anything without understanding. Before writing every line, they have to understand its meaning. Ganesh ji accepted his request.

Every chapter of the life of Lord Ganpati, the lord of wisdom, the giver of knowledge, is as wonderful as his unique form. Considered the lord of learning and writing, Ganapati ji is considered to be the most patient and stable of all the gods. His writing power has also been considered unparalleled.

This story dates back to the time when Maharishi Ved Vyas was going to start composing an epic named Mahabharata. For his epic, he was looking for a writer who would not interrupt the pace of his thoughts. In this sequence, he remembered Lord Ganesha and urged that Shri Ganesha should become the author of his epic. Ganesh ji agreed to him, but at the same time put a condition.

Ganesh ji accepted his request.

In this way, both the learned people sat together face to face and started playing their roles. Maharishi Vyasa started speaking at a very high speed and Lord Ganesha continued to write the epic at the same pace. Due to this speed, Ganesh ji’s pen suddenly broke, he started missing in sync with the speed of the sage. In this situation, not giving up, Ganesha broke one of his teeth and continued to write by dipping it in ink.

Gave Ganesh ji a new name Ekadanta

At the same time, he realized that he had taken pride in his writing speed and was underestimating the ability of the sage. Maharishi told the story at a very fast pace only to break his pride. At the same time, the sage also understood that there is no match for Gajanan’s quick wit and perseverance. With this, he gave Ganesha a new name, Ekadanta.

After both sides accepted each other’s power, ability and intelligence, the work of writing the epic began with equal passion and energy. It is said that this epic took three years to complete. In these three years, even once Ganesha did not stop the sage even for a moment, while Maharishi also fulfilled the condition.

One lakh antar in mahabharat

Whenever he needed some rest during the epic, he would utter a very difficult antara. According to the condition, Ganesh ji could not write anything without understanding. That is why as much time as Ganesha would have taken to understand that gap, in that time the sage would have rested. It is believed that many of the epics of Mahabharata have been lost somewhere. Despite this, even today there are one lakh antras in the Mahabharata.
