Ganesha is primarily and fundamentally the god of good; a cool, soft, calm, pure and benevolent being, striking neither awe nor inflicting pain, harm or punishment. Of the entire Hindu pantheon, Ganesha possesses the most human of characteristics, making him the most approachable of all the gods. A visitor to India will see small reminders of devotion to Ganesha almost everywhere. From a small postcard fixed on the dashboard of an auto rickshaw to help the driver overcome traffic obstacles, to a child in school invoking Ganesha before writing in a new notebook, Ganesha is there for everyone.
“Vakratunda mahakay surya koti sama prabha, Nirvighnam kuru mey deva sarva karyeshu sarvatha”
“O ye, who possesseth curved trunk, huge body and brilliance of ten million suns, accomplish and accomplish always, all my errands free from obstacles”
While images of Ganesha are often dense with symbolism (for an extreme example see our Ganesha GNSI17), this sculpture is an uncomplicated Ganesha enjoying the pure pleasure of making music. Ganesh, like Krishna, plays his flute (vena) to affirm life by celebrating its wonders, music being chief among them.
