Various people talk about the unique form that Lord Ganesh has, apart from the puranic stories, the following description of Lord Ganesh helps to view the icon with a different and very inspiring, and helps us to see the peculiar Ganesh image with a perspective.

Every part of the body of Lord Ganesh has its own significance:

  • Lord Ganesha's LARGE EARS: listen more                                                                          Lord Ganesh listens to everyone's' prayers,he does not  give what his true devotees ask for,but gives them what they needed.
  • Lord Ganesha's BIG HEAD: think big                    Symbolizes wisdom, knowledge, intelligence, clear thinking. Also indicates fidelity and discriminating power.
  • Lord Ganesha's SMALL EYES:concentrate                          Ganesha's tiny eyes symbolizes the importance of concentration and attention. 
  • Lord Ganesha's SMALL MOUTH:talk less                       The key feature of concentration is Listen more and talk less.                         
  • Lord Ganesha's LARGE TRUNK:high efficiency and adaptability                                                           Symbolizes that there is no straight path to success, be flexible and adaptable to achieve it.
  • Lord Ganesha's LARGE STOMACH:peacefully digest all good & bad in life                                                        Ganesha's large tummy symbolizes the ability to digest all that life has to offer - good, bad, ugly, evil, pain, suffering, happiness. Lord Ganesha's large stomach is a treasure of Vedic knowledge.                                              
  • Lord Ganesha's MOUSE: desire & Lord Ganesha's vehicle                                                             Ganesha's vehicle, his mouse bowing down close to him  indicates that the little desire is good but mastery of over desires is essential.                                       You have to ride your desires and not vice versa.             The mouse also symbolizes the darkness of night.           The mouse can see well in the dark. As Lord Ganesha's   mouse signifies an object that leads a man from darkness to light. 
  • Lord Ganesha's MODAK IN HAND:rewards of sadhana                        Symbolizes the abundant love, good will and boon that Lord Ganesh has and all the good things that he can offer to his devotees.
  • Lord Ganesha's AXE IN HAND:to cut all the bonds of attachments                                                          Lord Ganesh holds the elephant goad,his fierce weapon to remove obstacles from the path of his devotees. 
  • Lord Ganesha's ROPE IN HAND: to pull u nearer to the highest  goal                                                           The rope symbolizes his gentle restraint of the mind, so that his devotees are pulled closer to the spiritual path
  • Lord Ganesha's ONE TUSK:retain good & throw away bad                                                                       The single tusk (the other broken off) indicates Lord Ganesh’s ability to overcome all forms of dualism. With this broken tusk Lord Ganesh wrote the epic.
  • Lord Ganesha's four arms: four inner attributes of the subtle body                                                          The attributes are:- *mind (Manas), *intellect (Buddhi), *ego (Ahamkara), and *conditioned conscience (Chitta). Lord Ganesh represents the pure consciousness which enables these four attributes to function in us.
  • Lord Ganesha's LEGS: one leg raised up and the other touching the ground                                                   Lord Ganesha has one leg raised up in the air and the other touching the ground.This is symbolic that we should take part in both spiritual world and material world.
  • Lord Ganesha's forehead: the Trishul                               It represents the weapon of Shiva, similar to Trident.It is depicted, symbolizing time (past, present and future) and Lord Ganesha's mastery over it.

Lord Ganesh never ran away from  obstacles. Lord Ganesh adapted well to the circumstances. With the common sense and wisdom, Lord Ganesh converted the 
constraints into opportunities without any egos and hence became the Chief Lord of 
Ganas (Ganapathi/Ganesh).
