Ganesha is the one who tried to stop god Siva from visiting his beloved wife Parvati while not knowing the famous god Siva as being Parvati’s righteous husband and while not recognizing any differentiations between living beings while under direct influence of Parvati’s order to Guard, to Observe and to Protect.
For the deed of not recognising the famous Siva as being anything special, and while under a direct influence of his beloved Parvati, Ganesha had lost his head by Siva and Siva was then found responsible by his wife Parvati, very upset about the event, to find a new head for her beloved little guardian. Siva has solved the riddle by listening to the advice of one of his best soldiers Hanuman who has replaced the guardians head with the head of the Elephant. The Elephant was in that time the only animal that has slept with his head turned north as opposite to all humans who did not dare to sleep that way while knowing that sleeping with the head towards north can cost you a beheading.
Ganesha is a potent deity of fertility, good fortune, luck, extreme power and extraordinary righteousness that is helping millions of people around the world by fulfilling their wishes and guarding their good luck at all times.
Ganesha, also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshiped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India. All eastern religious and philosophy groups, people and spiritual practitioners worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.
