Consorts of Lord Ganesha (Story of Ganpati’s marriage with Siddhi & Buddhi)

The marital status of Ganesha had varied widely in the mythological series (religious history). There are different consorts which are quite identifiable. There is one pattern which says Ganesha as an unmarried Brahmin with no consorts. The other pattern reveals that they are associated with the concepts of Buddhi and Siddhi. They are the qualities of the goddess which are personified as the wives of the Ganesha.

According to one of the tradition, Ganesha was considered as he Brahmachari, i.e. unmarried. Ganesha was considered as the lifelong bachelor. Buddhi and Siddhi were born from the Brahma’s mind. Ganesha accept them as offerings.

In the Northern India, the two female figures are Siddhi and Buddhi. To the left and the right sides of the Ganesha are Siddhi and Buddhi.

The Ganesha Purana and the Mudgala Purana contain the descriptions of the god Ganesha. They were flanked by Siddhi and Buddhi. Ganesha marries two daughters of Prajapati, Siddhi and Buddhi through a clever approach. He has many forms and would be shown in different ways. These women are more likely feminine emanations.

The word Buddhi is a feminine word that translates as intelligence or the wisdom. Buddha was also an avatar of Ganesha. The two wives of Ganesha are distinct from shaktis.

The god Ganesha himself causes Siddhi and Buddhi to appear. Ganesha is the pure form of “eternal enlightenment”. So he is called Buddha. The oldest known depiction of Ganesha is of the form Shakti from the sixth century.
