What Does Each Part of Ganesha Symbolize?

Lord Ganesha, who is famous for his wisdom, sense of humor holds a Pasha in one of His right hand to attract the minds of his devotees, to propel mankind forward on the eternal path and to remove obstacles from the way of his devotees, while the other hand bestows boons. One of the left hands that carry an Ankusha, symbolizes the demolishment of ignorance and a gentle execution to capture all the difficulties, while the hand that holds a lotus or a rosary, suggests that the quest for knowledge should not quench.

Lord Ganesha’s head symbolizes the soul, which is the eventual and supreme reality of human existence. His body signifies Maya and His trunk represents “OM”. His ears can hear all our prayers and the snake that runs around his waist, represents energy in all forms. He uses a mouse (represents anger, pride, selfishness etc) to ride, which indicates us to have a control on all these evil passions. And finally the “laddoo” that he holds in his trunk, signifies that one must discover the sweetness of the soul.

How Ganesha Got Elephant’s Head?

There are a few legends attributed to the manifestation or birth of Lord Ganesha; however, the most accepted one is that He was formed by Goddess Parvati, from the material of Her own body. She then instructed Ganesha to guard, while she had her bath. It was during this time that Lord Shiva came there and the steadfast Ganesha did not allow entry to Him. The enraged Shiva, sent His demigods or “Ganas” to conquer Ganesha, but they had to taste defeat. This made Lord Shiva to tackle with Ganesha directly and in the battle, Shiva severed the head of Ganesha. Goddess Parvati, who returned after her bath, became extremely furious after witnessing Ganesha, without head.

Lord Shiva then ordered His “Ganas” to travel in the northward direction and to come with the head of anything that they happened to see first. It so happened, that they saw an elephant and its head was fitted to the body of Parvati’s manifested son.

Lord Shiva then also declared that Ganesha will be the leader of His followers and from this time forth, will be worshipped first in the beginning of all religious activities for successful outcomes. So offer your sincere prayers to the remover of obstacles on this Ganesh Chathurthi.
