4 Armed Ganesha

Significance of four : It was god Ganesha who instituted the four castes and the four Vedas. One hymn in Sri Bhagavat Tattva , says: ‘In heaven, this child will establish the predominance over gods, on earth over men, in the nether world over anti-gods and serpents.

Mystery of Ganesha
“Once there was neither Being nor Nonbeing. There was neither Form nor Formlessness. Then, That which was hidden within Itself, That One, stirring, emerging, coming to be. From Itself to the Formless to the Form. Immutable, changeless, everywhere, pervading all, yet not physically such is the mystery. Suddenly an ancient note piercing the darkness. A song whose birth stirred the slumbering, summoning an eternal mystery to awaken.
Emerging from deep within the hidden cave, the human heart, Ganesha’s truth flows from the icecave of the infinite. Housed within our gated dwelling, Ganesha the guest loved and longed for. That which has no form, can take a form. That which has no name, can take a name. From the formless to form, and back again and again and again. The wheel of time gathers speed, and somewhere between fact and legend, vision and myth, we ask, “Who is Ganesha?” There are those who lovingly sing his praises.
There are those who worship and adore him. There are those who represent him in art and literature. There are those who tell stories about him. There are those who chant his glory. There are those who seek his darshana, and there are those like us, who invoke and invite his blessings”.
Note from Ajarn Spencer Littlewood; “A comprehensive knowledge about the meaning and the meritorious abilities of Ganesha (or other Deities for that Matter), will lead to the wearer of the amulet bearing such qualities of character in mind, and eventually to develop such Meritotious Qualities in oneself. – Some people revere Devas simply for gaining assistance or help, and blessings, but others revere the Devas, for they admire the qualities they see within those Devas, of strength and perfection and raised high above worldly sufferings. To know that the mouse represents the mastery over ones instincts and desires, is to remember to try to not let desire take yourself for a ride.. study the qualities of your Devas, and contemplate how to develop those strengths yourself, this is a higher blessing than any wealth or worldly treasure – this kind of Devotee who imitates his positive heavenly Idols, will work towards becoming like those Devas which he idolizes and reveres, which is the true purpose of Deity Worship in the Long Run, and even Moksha can be achieved as a Goal through Devotion to Gurus or Deities, which is an act of Self Renunciation, and can lead to Liberation.
