Ganesha : The God Of Success

Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja. In India, God Ganesha is worshipped before starting anything as God Ganesha is known the Lord of success and destroyer of evils, obstacles ,vanity, selfishness and pride. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth.According to Hindu Mythology, He is son of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman.

The mythic forms demonstrate that Ganesh has the capacity to reduce all the human weaknesses, such as jealousy, drunkeness, illusion, greed, anger, desire, egotism, self-infatuation (arrogance), which send the devotee away from his path to god. We must notice that the battle against these ennemies of the human being are really the basis of the sadhana for the spiritual seeker. But, for all that, the demons are not definitely destroyed. They are only under control and the spiritual path only allows his result.

In Indian mythology, Ganesha is worshipped and known by many names including Ganapati and Vigneshvara. One popular way Ganesha is worshipped is by chanting a Ganesha Sahasranama, a litany of “a thousand names of Ganesha”. Each name in the sahasranama conveys a different meaning and symbolises a different aspect of Ganesha.

The name Ganesha is a Sanskrit compound, joining the words Gana (Sanskrit:gaṇa), meaning a group, multitude, or categorical system and Isha (Sanskrit: isa), meaning lord or master.

Vinayaka is also a common name for Ganesha that appears in the Puraṇas This name is reflected in the naming of the eight famous Ganesha temples in Maharashtra known as the Ashtavinayak. The names Vignesha and Vigneshvara (Lord of Obstacles) refers to his primary function in Hindu mythology as the creator and remover of obstacles (vighna).

A prominent name for Ganesha in the Tamil language is Pille or Pillaiyar (Little Child). A. K. Narain differentiates these terms by saying that pille means a “child” while pillaiyar means a “noble child”.
