Ganesha Lord of Success is one of the five prime Hindu deities.
He is the son of Shiva and Parvati – and known as the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth.
He has an elephantine head with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. His head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and also denotes wisdom.
His human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings, while his trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality.
