Ganeśh is the Hindu elephant headed God of wisdom and good fortune. Since early medieval times Ganeśh has been one of the most popular Hindu Gods. He is invoked before all undertakings from religious ceremonies, excluding funerals, to written compositions and even before the worship of other deities. A few sects worship him exclusively and although his origins maybe that of a tutelary village deity, today all sects claim him as their own.
