Legends say that Lord Ganesha - the harbinger of success and the remover of obstacles, will take a new avataar to save our nature from a deadly rakshas called pollution. He will take the form of a tree to prevent the earth from massive destruction and bless humans with the wisdom to protect our nature.
His devotees will pray him in the form of Tree Ganesha – The Lord of Nature. Anyone who worships him will be blessed with good health and prosperity.
Born from the power of human mind and the beauty of nature, the Lord shall assume the divine form of Tree Ganesha to bless his devotees during the Ganesha festival.
On the 14th day of the festival he will become one with the nature and take the form of a tree to fight the evil rakshas Pollution and spread the wisdom of nature. It is said that he has received the boon of eternity and will be reborn till he eliminates pollution from the face of the earth.
