Ganesha and Veena

As per Puranas, Sri Ucchhishta Ganapati (one of the 32 forms of Ganesha) holds a veena. But he has six hands.  He is dark coloured like a blue flower with his six hands holding a pomegranate fruit, veena (a stringed musical instrument), a blue flower, a bunch of rice plants, rosary of the holy beads made of rudraksha, and a noose.

Lord Ganesha is symbolic of the music and rhythm of the cosmos. He loves music and sometimes a veena is one of the attributes seen in his hands. He is the patron of music and dance.

Veena is popularly associated with Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and learning, wife of Brahma, usually depicted sitting on a lotus flower with a veena on her lap. She is the patron deity of scholars and musicians. The Veena in her hand is the symbol of Nada Brahmam.
