Ganesha, the elephant-headed god is one of the most loved and ubiquitous deities of the Hindu pantheon. Easily recognizable, he is revered across India. An amalgam of disparate elements, he is at once the creator and the clearer of obstacles, part-animal, yet a patron of learning. He is the presiding deity of material goods as also the lord of spirituality, lord of brahmacharis yet grants progeny to the childless. His enormous appeal stems from his fosters and the hopes and desires he fulfills with the powers attributed to him.
This book is the first in a series of coffee-table books on Hindu gods and goddesses.
