Lord Ganesh is not only the Lord of beginnings and remover of obstacles but also a teacher If you pay close attention to the tales of Hindu mythology.
For Lord Ganesha, responsibilities are supreme. It is believed that Goddess Parvati created Lord Ganesha by carving out a boy's idol from turmeric paste and breathing life into it, In the absence of Lord Shiva. One day, Parvati told the Ganesha to guard the door while she bathed, and he obediently followed his mother's instructions. Around the same time, Lord Shiva returned from his expedition and demanded entry into Parvati's bathing area which Lord Ganesha refused. The event turned into a fight between the father and the son and ended with Ganesha being beheaded. Later, Lord Shiva resurrected the boy after placing an elephant's head on his body.
This very story is a lesson that even gods are bound to fulfill their duties, and there's no greater virtue than being dutiful, especially towards a parent. Despite being well-aware of the might of Lord Shiva, and the repercussions that could follow, Lord Ganesha refused to budge even if when it cost him his life.
