Surrounded by a 'prabhavali' of lotus petals and standing on an inverted lotus pedestal is Ganesha, the Hindu god of Prudence and Policy. He is the reputed eldest son of Shiva and Parvati and is represented with an elephants head - an emblem of sagacity.

Standing in dwibhanga, this Ganesha has four arms, signifying the four forms of speech. In the two hands at the back he holds an 'ankush' and a 'pasha.' The ankush, an elephant goad was offered to him by the architect of the gods, Vishwakarma. The 'pasha' or the noose, one of the chief attributes of Ganesha is identified with the supreme Brahman in the Mudgal Purana. With one hand, he makes the gesture of assurance, the abhayamudra and with the other, varada, the wish granting gesture. His long trunk falls straight and then turns right holding a small modaka. He wears ornaments all over his body. A loin-cloth reaches up to his ankles and a scarf falls on both sides of his hips.

Placed in a niche at the entrance of the house, this wonderfully crafted image of Ganesha will ward of the evil eye and bring prosperity and joy.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
