GANESHA – God of Knowledge and Wisdom

The chubby, gentle, wise, elephant-headed Ganesh, or GANESHA, is one of Hinduisms most popular deities.
Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, the deity whom worshipers first acknowledge when they visit a temple.

The chubby, gentle, wise, elephant-headed Ganesh, or Ganesha, is one of Hinduisms most popular deities.
Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, the deity whom worshipers first acknowledge when they visit a temple.

Although he is known by many attributes, GANESHA’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as patron of letters and learning during writing sessions.
GANESHA images were prevalent in many parts of India by the 6th century …Ganesha has the head of an elephant and a big belly. This statue has four arms, which is common in depictions of Ganesha. He holds his own broken tusk in his lower-right hand and holds a delicacy, which he samples with his trunk, in his lower-left hand. The motif of Ganesha turning his trunk sharply to his left to taste a sweet in his lower-left hand is a particularly archaic feature.
The influence of this old constellation of iconographic elements can still be seen in contemporary representations of GANESHA. In one modern form, the only variation from these old elements is that the lower-right hand does not hold the broken tusk but is turned towards the viewer in a gesture of protection or fearlessness (abhaya mudra).
– Ganesha’s big belly represents generosity and total acceptance.
– Ganesha’s upraised hand depicts protection. It means, ‘Fear not, I am with you’, and his lowered hand, palm facing outwards means endless giving as well as an invitation to bow down. This is also symbolic of the fact that we will all dissolve into earth one day.
– Ganesha also has a single tusk which signifies one-pointedness. Even the implements Ganesha wields are symbolic.
– He carries in his hands the ‘Ankusa’ (signifying awakening) and the ‘Paasa’ (signifying control). With awakening, a lot of energy is released, which without proper control, can go haywire.
– Ganesha, the elephant-headed God travel on something as small as a mouse? Isn’t that so incongruous? Again there is symbolism that runs deep. The mouse snips and nibbles away at ropes that bind. The mouse is like the mantra which can cut through sheaths and sheaths of ignorance, leading to the ultimate knowledge represented by Ganesha!

GANESHA’s Roles and Patronage
As the Lord of Beginnings and Remover of Obstacles, Ganesha is often invoked at the beginning of business ventures, when moving into a new home, or other endeavors.Although this role in removing obstacles is most popular, traditionally Ganesh has an equally important role in placing obstacles in the way of those who need to be prevented from doing evil.
As Brahma’s scribe, Ganesha is also the patron of writers; his broken tusk sometimes appears as a pen.
As the Gatekeeper and a guardian figure (as described in his origin stories), Ganesh is often placed in the doorways of homes and temples.
Ganesha is worshipped with offerings provided to his statues in homes and temples, especially the sweets he demands.
He is invoked at the beginning of important endeavors. One of the most popular hymns to Ganesha prays:
Vakratunda mahakay surya koti sama prabha, Nirvighnam kuru mey deva sarva karyeshu sarvatha (O ye, who possesseth curved trunk, huge body and brilliance of ten million suns, accomplish, and accomplish always, all my errands detriment-free.

The Story of LORD GANESHA’s BIRTH
We are all familiar with the story of how Ganesha became the elephant-headed God. Parvati became dirty when she was celebrating with Shiva. When she realized this, she removed the dirt from her body and created a boy out of it. She then asked him to keep guard while she bathed. When Shiva returned, the boy did not recognize him and obstructed his passage. So Shiva chopped off the boy’s head and entered. Parvati was shocked when she saw this. She explained to Shiva that the boy was their son and pleaded with Shiva to save him at all costs. Shiva then instructed his helpers to go and get the head of someone who was sleeping with their head pointing to the north. The helpers then got the head of an elephant, which Shiva affixed to the boy’s torso and Ganesha was born!
An elephant’s trunk has the strength to uproot a tree as well as the finesse to pick up a needle.

When we say “Aum Ganeshaya Namah” before starting anything what we are saying is that “In what we are about to do, let wisdom be our guide”.
