Lord Ganesha Is More Than The Lord Of Beginnings And Destroyer of Obstacles!
Lord Ganesha, the large pot bellied god who has the head of an elephant and rides on a small mouse is an epitome of wisdom, knowledge, and prosperity. He has been noted as the esteemed god of all as deemed by his father Lord Shiva. He is popularly known as the “Vighnaharta” or the destroyer of obstacles and is worshipped before performing any activity, ritual or even in temples, his idol is always venerated before other deities.
When I was a kid I was always curious what earned him the bestowed powers he has and deemed as the god ” who always comes first before ‘pooja’ or ritual”. Although, there are many mythological reasons behind it but my father told me a story that fascinates me even today. Parents are said to be the god of a child but how many of us really regard them as God?
