GANESH the Deity of Wisdom, Learning and Auspicious beginnings. Lord Ganesh is worshiped at the forefront of all undertakings. When our endeavors are founded on the thought force of universal good, Lord Ganesh is said to remove all obstacle and clear the path for lasting success. He holds in his back hands the ax and noose. When we surrender to him, he annihilates our sensual distractions and ropes us in toward a more meaningful and profound existence. Ecstatic he dances to the rhythm of creation, ready to hand us the sweet rewards for our sincere and selfless actions. His front right hand raised, signaling eternal blessings.
