Bhagnadanta – Broken Tusk of Ganesha

Bhagnadanta, the broken tusk of Ganesha, is a symbol of sacrifice. Ganpati broke his beautiful right tusk and used it as a stylus to write the Mahabharata being narrated by Sage Vyasa.

Bhagnadanta of Ganesh teaches us that we must always finish the task we begin.

It also suggests the breaking of ego. Tusk is the most beautiful and valuable part of an elephant’s body. In pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, we must be ready to sacrifice what is most valuable to us.
