Ganesha, in spite of his elephantine head with blinking small eyes on either side of his elastic trunk, short arms, bulging girth overhanging his stunted legs is universally adored by Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains.
He is the lord of obstacles (Vighnesvara) and also the remover (Vighnahara or Vighnanasin) of the same. Hence, he is propitiated, both by men and gods, at the commencement of all ceremonies. As a god of wisdom, he is invoked at the beginning of any writing to ensure literary success.
