Our Elephant-headed One


Created by his Mother! Given the head of an Elephant by his Father!
In a contest with his brother, he could not be bothered to race around the world three times- he strode leisurely around his parents- they make up the world for him.

The Remover of Obstacles! The Scribe of the Mahabharata!
While other Gods compete with each other on their majestic mounts, he is happy pottering around on his trusty mouse. He is content, but when required, his physical bravery and intellectual powers surpass those of the other Gods.

Ganesha!
How can anyone not love our Elephant-headed God?

Natasha - I love Ganesha's title: The Remover of Obstacles. Thanks for sharing a little of his history with us.
