blank title


         This is a Hindu themed design I created based on Ganesha, (or "lord of the hosts," also spelled as Ganesa and Ganesh, often also referred to as Ganapati).   Ganesh is one of the most well-known and venerated representations of God (Brahman).  Ganesh is the Hindu lord that is considered the master of intellect and wisdom.  Ganesha is a much beloved and frequently invoked divinity, since he is the "Lord of Good Fortune" who provides prosperity and fortune and also the "Destroyer of Obstacles" of a material or spiritual order.

          There are many classical ways to depict Ganesh.   The Ganesha graphic on this page, sometimes referred to as "Siddhi Ganapati" or "the Accomplished," is the epitome of achievement and self-mastery.   He is holding a lotus and prayer beads, an axe, and a bowl of modaks (modaks means "That which gives (or brings) happiness") his favorite sweet.   I suggest using this brown colored text as shown.

          Above you see a title graphic with Ganesha, and a garland for you to insert a web page title on.  If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.   Below you will find a floral graphic divider and bullet designed for this page.   The Hindu text buttons are designed for this page and are linked for this site so that you can navigate through it.

bullet Ganesh Chaturthi is the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha. The festival celebrating Lord Ganesha's birth is called Ganeshotsav. This typically comes sometime between 20th of August and 15th of September. The festival lasts for 10 days.
bullet There are about 91 different figures of Ganesha according to research done by several scholars. The details of their make up vary from figure to figure, but the main form stays the same. 
bullet In every Hindu function, invocation to Lord Ganesha for His blessings takes precedence over all other gods to ward off any mishap.
bullet Every part of Ganesha's body, such as ear, nose, eyes, trunk, has some significance.
bullet Ganesha's yantra consists of a square, inside which is an eight petalled lotus, inside this is a hexagon and in the centre an upward facing triangle
bullet Ganesha is the first sound, OM, in which all hymns were born.  He represents the perfect equilibrium between force and kindness and between power and beauty. He also symbolizes the discriminative capacities which provide the ability to perceive distinctions between truth and illusion, the real and the unreal.
