Ganesha, also known as Ganesa, Ganesha or Ganapathi, is the most widely worshipped God in Hinduism. Ganesha is revered as master of intellect and wisdom and is often worshipped to remove obstacles. Its large head makes him easy to identify and encourages one to think big. The four arms indicate that Ganesha is omnipresent and omnipotent. The left side of the body symbolises emotion and the right side symbolises reason. Ganesha's small eyes represent concentration and large ears signify a great capacity to listen and assimilate ideas.
