Ganesha is known as the remover of obstacles and master of new beginnings. His iconic elephant head symbolizes wisdom and understanding.
Place Ganesha's powerful presence anywhere in your home to bring success to your endeavors. This statue features Ganesha sitting atop a lotus, indulging in his sweets bowl with his trunk.
An elephant's trunk has the strength to uproot a tree as well as the finesse to pick up a needle.
- Ganesha's trunk symbolises the fact that the wise person has both immense strength and fine discrimination. Ganesha has large ears. The wise person hears all. He has four hands. In one hand he holds a lotus, the symbol of enlightenment. In the other hand he holds a hatchet. That is, the old karma, all your sanskars, the accumulated good and bad of past deeds get cut when enlightenment comes.
- The third hand holds laddus, the round sweet-meats. They are the rewards of a wise life. Ganesha is never shown eating the laddus. The wise man never partakes of the rewards of his deeds. He is not attached to them. The fourth hand is shown blessing the people. The wise man wishes the best for everyone.
- Ganesha has only one tusk; the other is shown broken. There is an interesting story as to how Ganesh happened to get an elephant's head and how one tusk got broken. The symbolism of the broken tusk is that the wise person is beyond duality.
We tend to think that we end when our bodies end in the material world. We are the first person. All else is different. This duality is created by the mind which creates the ego to help us survive in this world. This 'me-other' duality is the screen keeping us from realising our real Self, which is beyond body and mind. Once we transcend this duality, we see the entire Universe as a single whole and we become aware of our true Selves. The single tusk of Ganesha symbolises this non-duality. Wisdom allows us to see all as one and ourselves an integral part of the whole.
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
". In a sense, Ganesha is our most powerful god, and he is usually remembered before starting any rituals for other deities.
