328 Views

Vinayagar or Ganapathi, popularly identified as the elephant god, is one of the most significant Hindu Deities who provides wisdom and good fortune. Before any new activity such as laying of the foundation of a house or beginning of any new venture, Vinayagar is worshipped to shower his blessings.

Sri Ganesh

Vinayagar means supreme or “one with none other more supreme”. The form of Vinayagar characterises the Auspicious “Aum” written in Tamil. The sound made by an elephant approximately represents the sound made when pronouncing “Aum”.

Ganapathi represents a character of perfection who has realized the Supreme truth. The form of the Lord is filled with suggestions that carry the highest Vedantic thoughts.

The large head and ears of the Lord signify that he had gained deep wisdom through listening (Sranvana) and reflecting (manana) upon the truths of the Vedanta Philosophy.

Vinayagar has many names such as Ganapathi (lord of the Ganas or attendants), Vigneshwara (the lord who removes obstacles) and Gajaanana (Elephant Faced). By worshiping Vinayagar, one seeks His blessings to achieve success in one’s efforts in the physical world and for attaining bliss thereafter.
