Ganesha – The remover of Obstacles.

Ganesha is well-known as the patron of art and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is the first one to be remembered or worshipped on any auspicious occasions in the Hindu context.

Ganesha also is known as Vighneshwara, is said to have written ‘Mahabharata’ recited to him by sage Vyasa. It is said that it took both of them 3 years to complete this process of writing and continuous speaking. Besides writing this book Ganesha also had to understand each and every word of it.  When Ganesha was writing the Mahabharata, the feather with which he was writing broke. So, to stick to the condition of writing continuously, Ganesha broke his tusk and wrote the rest of the book with it.

A unique combination of his elephant-like head and a quick moving tiny mouse vehicle represents tremendous wisdom, intelligence, and the presence of mind.

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.
