Lord Ganapathy is the supreme expression of super consciousness. He is the Lord of beginnings. His very form itself radiates joy and removes obstacles. If we understand his form, we will understand the truth presented in his form. His is the most worshipped form of the Divine in the Hindu pantheon. Ganapathy is the only God who is worshipped by all six Vedic traditions. A much loved and revered God, he is always remembered as simple, innocent and easily approachable. In his four hands, he holds angusha (elephant prods typically used to direct or steer elephants) in one hand, pasa (noose) in another, his own broken tusk in the third hand, and a sweet in the last.
