Jikmed Phuntsok
Heramba is described having five elephant heads, four facing the cardinal directions while the fifth at the top looking upwards.The colours of Heramba's heads closely relate to four aspects of his father Shiva – Ishana, Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva and Sadyojata. The five heads symbolize his power. He often will be golden yellow in colour. Sometimes, he is described to be white in complexion.

Heramba, Panchamukha Ganesha. Used as an epithet of Ganesha in the Ganesha Purana.[3] The Brahma vaivarta Purana explains the meaning of Heramba: the syllable “He” denotes helpnessless or weakness, while “Ramba” is protection of the weak, to save them from harm; thus Heramba means the "Protector of the weak”.
