Who is Lord Ganesh?
Lord Ganesha is a powerful Hindu deity who is highly revered in the Indian culture. He is the son of Lord Shiva (of the Hindu trinity) and Goddess Parvati. He is characterized by his mystical appearance – the trunk of an Elephant, a Human body and a rotund belly and is usually depicted in Lord Ganesha images and photos with sweet dumplings in his hands (Modakam, Modak or Laddu) and his wagon, a rat or a ‘mooshak’ in Hindi. In the exhaustive study of the Vedas, these are also believed to be philosophical metaphors with very deep and important meanings. His massive belly is said to be symbolic of the hunger for knowledge, appetite for the truth and the fulfillment of worldly pleasures. The trunk of Ganesha is symbolic of the wisdom, physical strength, affection and insouciance of an Elephant.
He is the epitome of focus and clarity in the midst of a gray world which is full of duality and confusion. That is why, in the Lord Ganesha photos, he is depicted as having only one tusk; hence the name ‘Ekdantaaya’, since ‘ek’ means one and ‘dant’ means tooth in Hindi.
