Partly Gold Plated Dancing Ganesha Statue 5.5" High SS-ST130
Ganesha is one of the most popular guardian deities worshiped in Nepal, India by Hindus and Buddhists. Ganesha is said to be the deity of eliminator of obstacles. To begin any auspicious work or enterprise, Nepalese adore Ganesha with the hope that they may accomplish their work successfully. Sadhanamala and Nispannayogavali are described as the forms of Ganesha.
He rides on a mouse and is white in color. He has an elephant face. A Snake forms his scared thread. He has four arms, carries a Trisula and Laddu (Sweet ball) and in the left hands a Parasu (axe) and a radish. He is the son of the Lord Shiva and Parvati.
His brother Kumara challenged Ganesha to circumambulate the world thrice and whoever did it faster would be the winner. The winner was to be awarded to be worshiped first by the people. Kumara traveled the world with his pet peacock several times faster. Ganesha thought that he would not be able to circumambulate the world with his tiny pet mouse and came out with a different idea. He began to circumambulate around Lord Shiva and Parvati. His parents asked the reason for that. Ganesha replied that this triple circumambulating the world was not greater than his parents and that Shiva and Parvati were the universe themselves, it is thus far more better than circumambulating the world thrice. On hearing the wise answer of their son Ganesha, Lord Shiva and Parvati blessed him that he should be the first deity to be worshiped before any ritual ceremony or auspicious occasions.
