Sitting Ganesh Incense Stick Holder - Polyresin 11 1/2" L. Remover of Obstacles.
Symbolism and Significance of Ganesha
- Ganesha's big belly represents generosity and total acceptance.
- Ganesha's upraised hand depicts protection. It means, 'Fear not, I am with you', and his lowered hand, palm facing outwards means endless giving as well as an invitation to bow down. This is also symbolic of the fact that we will all dissolve into earth one day.
- Ganesha also has a single tusk which signifies one-pointedness. Even the implementsGanesha wields are symbolic.
- He carries in his hands the 'Ankusa' (signifying awakening) and the 'Paasa' (signifying control). With awakening, a lot of energy is released, which without proper control, can go haywire.
- Ganesha, the elephant-headed God travel on something as small as a mouse? Isn't that so incongruous? Again there is symbolism that runs deep. The mouse snips and nibbles away at ropes that bind. The mouse is like the mantra which can cut through sheaths and sheaths of ignorance, leading to the ultimate knowledge represented by Ganesha!
