Ganapati Kapalasana

Lord Ganesha who sits upon an asana of skulls, & also often bedecked with the skull ornaments such as the skull earrings & crown ornaments. Lord Ganapati is the astrological overlord of Ketu. This rarely seen form of Ganesha reveals an aspect of his function as the one who delivers our past, undesirable karmas to us to be purified,for the ultimate purpose of laya, or ultimate liberation from the illusory display of samsara.
