Mayur means the peacock subsequently Mayuresh is the lord of the Peacocks. The feathers of the Mayur are a symbol of renewal as the entire tail is renewed each year. The feather of the peacock is a perfect inspiration for the bookmark since it is an ideal accomplice to books; books that embody knowledge and bestow wisdom, beauty, enlightenment, and grace.
According to Ganesh purana, this is the 2nd incarnation of Lord Ganesha. Once Ganesha along with the children came upon a mango grove full of ripe juicy fruits. They let themselves loose in the garden, plucking and eating the mangoes and throwing the seeds at each other. In that garden, atop a tree, a woman was keeping guard over a big egg and one of the seeds thrown by the children fell on her.
Disturbed in her roost, she came down and started chasing the children. Ganesha immediately climbed the tree and took the egg in his hands. As soon as he did so, the egg cracked and out came a huge bird from it having a blue neck, a powerful peacock. It was so hungry that it jumped down in search of food and tried to swallow the running boys Ganesha jumped on the bird caught hold of its wings and beat it up. Then he mounted the bird and brought it under his control.
Seeing the victory of Ganesha the woman prostrated to him and said: "Lord I am Vinata, wife of Sage Kasyapa. This bird is my son. My husband had told me that the person who would break the egg that I had laid, would become his master. I had been waiting here for years for this to happen. Now I am happy and have fulfilled my duty. My other sons like Jatayu, Shyena, Sampaati, and others are held captive by the powerful serpents in their kingdom. Please be kind enough to release them."
The peacock by this time had recovered from the pains of a fight with Ganesha and surrendered to him. Mounting his new vehicle, Ganesha returned him to his parents. He was given the name MAYURESH the Lord of Mayur, by the Rishis. Thereafter he conquered the serpent kingdom and released the celestial birds from captivity. He conquered a number of demons who had become powerful under the reign of the demonic king Sindhu. Seeing the superhuman capabilities of Mayuresh, Brahmaji offered his two daughters Siddhi and Buddhi in marriage to Mayuresh. However, he declined to marry them immediately. He wanted first to fulfill his mission of destroying Sindhu.
Seeing that Mayuresh had come of age. Lord Shiva and Parvati decided to return to Kailash, and the whole entourage set forth on their journey. On the way, a number of Asuras attacked them, but Mayuresh vanquished them all.
Sindhu became restless. He waged a war against Mayuresh and sent his two powerful sons Dharma and Adharma to defeat the enemy. They were killed in the battle. Sindhu himself came upon the field; a fierce battle ensued and at last Sindhu was killed. With his death. Lord Vishnu and others were free to go back to their respective worlds. The cosmic rhythm disturbed by Sindhu was set again to its normal equilibrium. The marriage of Mayuresh with Siddhi and Buddhi was solemnized.
It was time for Mayuresh to fold up his manifestation in the world. So, one day, he conveyed his intention to Lord Shiva, Parvati and others "When can I again have the privilege of having you as My son " asked the Mother. "In Dwapara Yuga. I will again be born to you to kill the terrible demon Sindur, said the Lord. Kartikeya, younger brother of Mayuresh said: "Please don't leave me alone, take me also with you." In a sweet brotherly voice, Mayuresh replied: "Where am I going away from you. I am the inner consciousness in all beings, and so I am very much in your heart also, at all times." He then gave His Mayur (Peacock) to Kartikeya and addressed him as "Mayuradhwajai ", and then ascended to his imperishable world.
