Photographer's Note

Salutatins to Lord Ganesha.
This beautiful Idol about 12 feet tall in the siting position is in the Vaishno temple, Bikaner.
Lord Ganesha is also called Vinayak Maharaj; knowledgeable or Vighneshwer; god to remove obstacles.
He is worshipped, in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings and auspiciousness.
He is also patron of letters and of learning; he is the legendary scribe who, using his broken tusk, which he often holds, wrote down parts of the Mahabharata epic.
Ganesha is usually depicted colored red; he is pot bellied, has one tusk broken, and has four arms that may hold a pasam, a goad, and a pot of rice or sweetmeats. The sweet meats are held in a type of bowl known as a laddus. His appetite for these sweets is legendary and offerings of them are often left at his shrine.
