Ganesha - also known as Ganesh or Ganapathi - is the elephant-headed Hindu deity who is the remover of obstacles and the giver of success for new pursuits or auspicious beginnings. Elephants are the animals that pave the way in the forests, removing any potential obstacles and making a clear path for all other animals to pursue. The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha represents the energy that is grounded and centered with sharp intelligence and wisdom.
Ganesha is seen in form holding and surrounded by objects of his power:
Prominent ears symbolize high listening quality; his discernible head imparts wisdom. A notable stomach signifies the ability to digest all, good or bad. His trunk curves towards good fortune and adaptability. Ganesha holds an axe to cut attachments that no longer serve well; his mouth and eyes signify talking less and concentrating more. Surrounded by a mouse and a snake, Ganesha reminds us to move quickly from desire and to protect our fortune.
Mantra: Om Gam Ganapathi Namo Namaha (Bowing to Lord Ganesha for wisdom and transformation). Repeat this mantra 108 times; this signifies the number of beads on a mala.
