Ganesha

 

Ganesha also spelled as Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu religion.


Lord Ganesha is the Hindu deity, with the head of an elephant - represents the power of the Supreme that removes obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors. For this reason, there is a belief in Hindu religion that why they worship Ganesha first before beginning any religious, spiritual or worldly activity. Usually before beginning any religious writing, he is invoked with words 'Om Shri Ganeshaya Namaha', literally meaning "Ganesha, I pray to you". Most people, from student to shopkeeper, movie producer to nuclear scientist, begin work by invoking Ganesha, however briefly.

 

 In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha is the first son of Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati. The portrayal of Lord Ganesha as the blend of human and animal parts symbolizes the ideals of perfection as conceived by Hindu sages and illustrates some philosophical concepts of profound spiritual significance.

 

A legend explains why Ganesha is worshipped before any other deity or prior to any important event. It happened that Shiva asked Kartikeya and Ganesha to circle the world and return. Kartikeya hurried off on his peacock, but Ganesha walked around Shiva and Parvati. He explained that for him, his parents constituted the world. Pleased, Shiva granted him a boon, saying that before undertaking any important task, people would pray to Ganesha. According to the Narasimha Purana, if he is not worshipped at the beginning of a ceremony, he creates obstacles for the performers. Therefore, no matter what the occasion or ceremony be, Ganesha is worshipped before all other deities. For this reason, he is called Vighneshwara, the remover of all obstacles. Ganesha's mouse, by gnawing its way through everything, is said to symbolize the god's ability to destroy all obstacles.
