Shri Ganesh Ji

   

Shree Ganesh, Ganapati, ganesh ji

Shree Ganesh is the god of wisdom and learning, as well as the remover of obstacles.'Ga' symbolizes Buddhi (intellect) and 'Na' symbolizes Vijnana (wisdom). Lord Ganesha is also called Vinayak ( knowledgeable ) or Vighneshwer (god to remove obstacles). In Hindu beliefs his elephant head symbolizes wisdom, small shrewd eyes, long ears that miss nothing, a long nose that can smell out anything  and his vehicle, a mouse, reflects a person's ego so Ganesha, using the mouse as a vehicle, exemplifies the need to control our ego.
