The elephant headed God Ganesh, son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, brings joy and happiness to the family and also removes all the obstacles. Lord Ganesha is always worshipped first in temples and private houses in every occasion.
The word 'Ganesha' means the Lord of Ganas (the army of the gods), the leader of the army of Shiva. That is why he is also called Ganapati and Gananayaka. He is considered as the Lord of Wisdom and is also worshipped as the God who grants success.
Maharshi Narada has praised Ganesha as following verses :
"Vidyartheelabhatevidyam, Dhanartheelabhatedhanam, Putrartheelabhateputram, Mokshartheelabhategatim"
Meaning: A student acquires education, a man who desires money gains wealth, one who seeks a son gets a son and the aspires of salvation reaches his goal.
