You can please Ganesha with a small grass or a modak

Lord Ganesha dispels the human infatuation oscillating between the jeevatma and paramatma. Mainly confused over the superiority of one over the other.

Ganesha’s journey from his birth to being the in charge of thirty-three Devata Ganas is a saga of dismantling this confusion and bringing a ken amongst the devotees that the ulterior goal is absorbing jeevatma into paramatma.

Through his attire, presence and the peculiar body, head and ears Ganesha reprimands the duties and responsibilities of the humans in their daily life.

The small eyes depict that you must have concentrated look and understand intricacies of every point in life, the big ears denote that you should listen more. Speak less and listen more is the essence.

His elephant head represents supreme power of knowledge.

Ganesha is the bestower of bliss, virtuous, success and he is all pervading universal power. Lord is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent.

You can please him with a small grass or a laddu made of rice. He is happy and blesses humans with supreme knowledge.
