Shankha Vinayaka - Ganesha in a Conch

Shankha Vinayaka - Ganesha in a Conch

Shankha Vinayaka - Ganesha in a Conch

From the life of Ganesha, we can learn many lessons for success in our life:1- Don’t act on pressure (The story of Ganesha cursing the moon). Always think before you react because anger passes on but actions remain; 2-Learn to forgive and forget(The Story of Vakratunda Matsaryasur); 3- don't panic, make the best of your situation (The story of Kartikeya and Ganesha) The Ganesha Kartikeya story highlights the importance of thinking especially in adverse situations. Panic clouds your judgment so all you need to do is master the art of controlling your intentions and focusing on available resources to make the best out of the worst.; 4-Be humble (The Ganesha and Kuber story): Humbleness can help you build genuine and richer relationships with people you work with.

There are three specialties in this marvellous brass object d'art – The distinctive posture of Ganesha (resting opulently beside a masand- long pillow); the stunning conch itself and the attractively carved sacred ‘OM’.The conch is knotted with the cord on the edge of Ganesha’s feet to avoid any obstruction in his relaxation. The cord could be untied when needed. The conch is laid on a fascinating drum-shaped podium.

Attired in a spectacular colourful costume & adorned with fascinating jewellery all along his body, sporting a magnificent coronet on the head, holding his usual yantras in hands, munching modak with his lovely trunk in one hand, another beside the masand. The pattern of such a wonderful, excellent and fine workmanship made of brass is rarely seen. The craftsmanship and passion of the artisans is unique. One must keep this icon for removing the evil-effects and getting good fortune.

Endowed with child-like innocence, mischief in eyes and carefree disposition, the cool, soft and benign elephant-headed Ganesha is invoked primarily for removing obstacles and assuring a hassle-free start to any enterprise. Indeed, no occasion in India, whether it be the inauguration of an office or the foundation stone of a temple, is begun till Lord Ganesha has been worshipped. Not only this, his continuing presence in any home or office is said to ensure a hassle free existence.

According to the strict rules of Hindu iconography, Ganesha figures with only two hands are taboo. Hence, Ganesha figures are most commonly seen with four hands which signify their divinity. Some figures may be seen with six, some with eight, some with ten, some with twelve and some with fourteen hands, each hand carrying a symbol which differs from the symbols in other hands, there being about fifty seven symbols in all, according to the findings of research scholars.

The most striking feature of Ganesha is his elephant head , symbolic of auspiciousness, strength and intellectual prowess. All the qualities of the elephant are contained in the form of Ganesha. The elephant is the largest and strongest of animals of the forest. Yet he is gentle and, amazingly, a vegetarian, so that he does not kill to eat. He is very affectionate and loyal to his keeper and is greatly swayed if love and kindness are extended to him. Ganesha, though a powerful deity, is similarly loving and forgiving and moved by the affection of his devotees. But at the same time the elephant can destroy a whole forest and is a one-man army when provoked. Ganesha is similarly most powerful and can be ruthless when containing evil.

Again, Ganesha's large head is symbolic of the wisdom of the elephant. His large ears, like the winnow, sift the bad from the good. Although they hear everything, they retain only that which is good; they are attentive to all requests made by the devotees, be they humble or powerful.

Ganesha's trunk is a symbol of his discrimination (viveka), a most important quality necessary for spiritual progress. The elephant uses its trunk to push down a massive tree, carry huge logs to the river and for other heavy tasks. The same huge trunk is used to pick up a few blades of grass, to break a small coconut, remove the hard nut and eat the soft kernel inside. The biggest and minutest of tasks are within the range of this trunk which is symbolic of Ganesha's intellect and his powers of discrimination.

The little mouse who is Ganesha's preferred vehicle, is another enigmatic feature in his iconography. At a first glance it seems strange that the lord of wisdom has been granted a humble obsequious mouse quite incapable of lifting the bulging belly and massive head that he possesses. The mouse is, in every respect, comparable to the intellect. It is able to slip unobserved or without our knowledge into places which we would have not thought it possible to penetrate. In doing this it is hardly concerned whether it is seeking virtue or vice. The mouse thus represents our wandering, wayward mind, lured to undesirable or corrupting grounds. By showing the mouse paying subservience to Lord Ganesha it is implied that the intellect has been tamed through Ganesha's power of discrimination.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
