Kubera, the God of Wealth whose very proud of his boundless fortune. He possessed all kinds of valuable gems, jewels and stones and all the riches of this world He wanted to impress Lord Shiva, and obtain his blessings by showing off his riches. So he planned to organize a grand feast for Lord Shiva at his palace in Alagapuri.

 Kubera, I accept your invitation for the dinner You may proceed with your arrangements. Kubera bowed respectfully to Lord Shiva and returned to alagapuri and started making preparations for the dinner. The next day Alagapuri, Kubera's legendary City was filled up with a festivel mood, the whole City was beautifully decorated. The people were busy making preparations for the dinner, The Air was filled up with the sound of trumpets blowing, and drums banging in honor of Lord Shiva.

Experts in the field of cooking, were appointed to prepare the best food to be served for the  lords. At the moment when Lord Kubera waited anxiously for the arrival of Lord Shiva. Lord Ganesha appeared all alone in front of him Welcome Lord Ganesha, Where are your parents? Why have you come all alone? They could not come here hence they sent me... so is the feast ready shall we go? Hmm, please come Lord Ganesha understood that Kubera had organized his feast to show off his riches and obtain the blessings of Lord Shiva. Lord Ganesha wanted to teach him a lesson. He finished all the food that was served him in a moment. What is that all? Bring me more food When Kubera understood that Ganesha was still hungry, he ordered to prepare more food quickly. The entire stock of grains, vegetables and fruits in the palace, was cooked and served in front of him Ganesha finished all that food in another moment. I am still hungry, bring me more food Kubera ordered to bring all the food available in the city of Alagapuri, to be served to Lord Ganesha. Ganesha seemed to gulp down all the food served in front of him and he still felt hungry. Kubera who wished to obtain the blessings of Lord Shiva, was shocked and stood bewildered at the sight of Ganesha's appetite.

  He understood, that he would not be able to Satisfy Ganesha at all Not knowing what to do. He immediately ran to seek help of Lord Shiva. Kubera prayed to Lord Shiva, and he appeared in front of him. Oh Lord, please forgive me. I have learnt my lesson I wish to obtain your blessings by showing off my wealth, but Lord Ganesha has humbled me. Oh Lord, forgive me. I am unable to satisfy Ganesha's hunger with all my riches you are the protector of this world and now please help me my lord Kubera there is no use in asking me for forgiveness Go and apologize to Lord Ganesha Ask him to forgive you, he can save you from your difficulties. Oh Lord forgive me. I am unable to satisfy your hunger with all the riches I have. I have realized my fault, please do forgive my mistakes and bless me.... Bless me. Kubera, remember Only true and sincere devotion will get you our blessings. You can never please us by showing off your wealth, I can be satisfied with a single fruit if offered to me with devotion. I did all this just to teach you a lesson.
