Ganesha - the Remover of Obstacles, the head of the Ganas, the attendants of Lord Shiva and Parvati Devi. He prevented Ravana from becoming all powerful by forcing him to put down a shivaling he was supposed to carry all the way to Lanka. He also made Kumbhakarna (Ravana's brother) misspeak the name of a boon, resulting in him sleeping for 6 months of the year.
Ganesha - Destroyer of Obstacles and Lord of Success. The son of Shiva and Parvati, he is the Lord of success, education, knowledge, wisdom, wealth and the destroyer of evils. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja. 10" Resin Ganesh Statue, $79.99 available online at http://buddha-for-you.com/hindu-statues/ -
