Ganesha (गणेश)


Ganesha (गणेश): The elephant god, son of Shankar (भगवान शंकर) and Parvati (देवी पार्वती). He is the God of wisdom and good judgement. He is worshipped as the remover of obstacles (विघ्नहर्ता) that stand in the way of good deeds. He is also known to plants obstacles in the path of evil activities (दुष्टदलन). Though neither human nor animal, Ganesha combines human intelligence with the physical strength of an Elephant. He is considered to be the supreme embodiment of knowledge and divine wisdom (बुद्धी रिद्धि सिद्धि प्रदायक). He is said to have written the Mahabharata from the dictation of sage Vyasa. He is a charming though odd looking deity. He is represented as short, fat and with a protruding belly. His skin has an orangish hue and his appearance reflects prosperity. He has four hands, the head of an elephant (गजानन) and only one tusk (एकदंत). In one hand he holds a shell, in another a discus, a club in the third and a water lily in the fourth. He is shown as riding on a rat. He is said to possess a third eye like his parents. But unlike them, it is not there to display anger. On the contrary, it is a symbol of his wisdom. He is also a dancer, and his dancing is joyous and not destructive.
