Shri Ganpati Festival Special - Part 8

The saint who wanted to be ugly – a story 

All of us desire to be beautiful. Can you imagine someone who prayed to the lord to be made ugly. Such was Mata Auvaiar, the Tamil devotee of Lord Ganesha, a great poetess and devotee of the Lord. The story goes that Mata ji was so beautiful that there were several men wished to convince her to marry them. However, Mata ji had given her heart and soul to Lord Ganesha and she did not need anyone else. She therefore prayed to Lord Ganesha that she be made old, and ugly so no one would bother her.
