“In religion, India is the only millionaire - the One land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined” 
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform that Sri Sai Manasa Datta Swamy who is coordinating our activities has taken the initiative to distribute more than 1000 clay Ganapathi vigrahas to the interested Hindus free of cost. Main reasons are:
1)    Encourage Hindus to perform Ganesh Chaturdhi festival at their houses so that they would know the significance of performing the Puja.
2)    Ganesh Vigrahas are made with clay so that it will be immersed in the water immediately
3)    Ganesh Vigrahas are made with Tulasi seeds spread at the bottom of the Vigraha
4)    When Ganesh Vigraha is immersed in water we encourage them to put it in the cow drung so that the seeds will sprout and will have Tulasi plant in their house or courtyard
5)    These vigrahas are made with clay and Tulasi seeds so that it will protect the environment.
  As per the legend that no one can perform any activity without first invoking the name of Lord Ganesha. One should start the activity at least by saying "Om Gam Ganapataye Namah," to propitiate Ganapati. Ganapathi is considered the remover of obstacle. 
Birth of Ganesha:
One day Parvati Devi performed abhyangana Snana (this is a form of bath taken by applying oil to the whole-body massage until the whole oil gets into the body and then apply sunnipindi (flour) called “Nalugu “to body and rub so that the flour peels of taking all the dust).  While performing the bath she prepares a boy with the flour and instills life into it. The child is born and she asks him to be guard at the front door to make sure no one will enter the house.
The child is now standing as a guard to the door of the house of Parvati. Shiva comes home and tries to get into the home, where the child has stopped him. Shiva gets angry and in a fit of rage kills the boy by beheading and burning the head and enters the house.
Parvati receives lord Shiva with affection. In the course of talking Shiva tells Parvati that he had killed the boy who tied to prevent him from entering the house. Shocked. Parvati narrates the whole story of the birth of the boy and becomes sad. Shiva repents on what he had done and the only way that he can bring the boy to life is by attaching a new head. He sends all the soldiers under his command to go and fetch a head of the person who is lying (sleeping) with his head positioned in the North direction. Then all the soldiers go in all the directions and finally return with the head of Gajasura stating that Gajasura was the only one sleeping with his head kept in the North direction. (Hence it is advised not to sleep keeping the head in North direction. One more reason being that South is the position of Yama and no one would want to see Yama as soon as they get up).
Shiva then brings back the boy to life by attaching the head of Gajasura and named him Gajanana (Ganesha). He was given a rat by the name of Anindyudu as vehicle. Shiva and Parvati after few years had another son by the name of Kumaraswamy. Kumaraswamy became the commander of the army of gods later. Kumaraswamy is also called as Karthikeya, Subramanya etc.
