When you go to any temple or look at a picture or idol of any deity, some curiosity arises in your mind. Why should Lord Ganesha have elephant head with a big trunk? The conveyance of Lord Shiva is Nandi bull, Goddess Pravatis' conveyance is Lion and Lord Ganesha's is mouse. Why? Can we ride on a mouse? In pictures Goddess is some times having four, eight or ten hands. Is it true?
While performing puja at home we draw sketch of lotus, swastika, Om, tree and pinnacle. Are they merely designs? No, they are symbols. People want to know the meaning of these symbols and the facts of our culture, which are revealed by them.
We can not know anything about our India unless we understand the meaning of these symbols and after understanding the meaning of these symbols, we will have more veneration for out country.
It is said that it is difficult to understand the meaning of these symbols. But in reality it is not so. If we teach the children from their childhood about these symbols, they will become scholar of these symbols in their young age and will interpret these in a better way.
Some of the symbols are being given here and it is hoped that children will understand the meaning of these symbols and will spread their message further.
