Lord Ganesh Fills Your Home With Prosperity & Fortune - Hinduism
'The remover of obstacles'.
Brings good luck, harmony and great
success in one’s life.
Ganesha, also spelled Ganesh, also
called Ganapati, elephant-headed
Hindu god of beginnings, who is
traditionally worshipped before any
major enterprise and is the patron
of intellectuals, bankers, scribes,
and authors. His name means both
“Lord of the People” and
“Lord of the Ganas”
(Ganesha is the chief of the ganas,
the goblin hosts of Shiva).
Ganesha is potbellied and generally
depicted as holding in his hand a few
round Indian sweets, of which he is
inordinately fond. His vehicle (vahana)
is the large Indian bandicoot rat, which
symbolizes Ganesha’s ability to overcome
anything to get what he wants. Like a rat
and like an elephant, Ganesha
is a remover of obstacles.
The 10-day late-summer (August–September) festival Ganesh Chaturthi
is devoted to him.
