This beautiful story illustrates the spiritual insight that is so typical of Ganesha. Ganesha and Kartikay, both sons of Shiva and Parvati, enter a contest to see who can go around the universe the fastest and is thus the most befitting to temporarily replace Shiva and Shakti. While Kartikey rushes off on his peacock, Ganesha walks around his parents at leasure, declaring the universe to be nothing more or less than Shiva and Parvati. All deities appload him and Ganesha wins.
