Ganesha With Flames #5 – Faith Stone
Here Ganesha faces challenges in a ring of fire to burn through all obstacles. This is #5 in a series of 5 mini Ganeshas.
Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity, is one of the most beloved and recognizable figures in the Hindu and Buddhist pantheon. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of the arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is invoked for auspicious beginnings, at the start of travel, marriage and new adventures. His vehicle is the mouse, moushika, symbolizing Ganesha’s ability to travel anywhere to assist, even in the smallest places.
