Lord Ganesha is known as the Remover of All Obstacles and usually worshipped before any venture or project. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities, along with Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga.
Ganesha has deep symbolism:
His head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality, and his human body represents Maya or the earthly, illusionary existence of human beings.
His trunk signifies Om, the primordial sound of cosmic reality.
The rosary he holds suggests that the pursuit of knowledge must be continuous.
The sweet (ladoo) he holds in his trunk signifies the sweetness of the Atman we must unveil.
His ears convey the need to listen to the teacher, and also that Ganesh is all ears to our prayers.
The snake around his waist represents energy in all forms.
Mushika the mouse, his vehicle, represents desire, without which human life would cease to exist but which should be controlled to attain wisdom.
