Actually mallu i really dont know this answer... i just google it and get this answer.. if any other simple and different answer is there means please let me know..i really want to know.my favourite god is lord vinayagar only but still i dont know this..


Lord Ganesh  is the symbolic representation of a gnani



the elepahant head kept on a human body explains how a man is supposed to function.



elephant head has unique features compared to other animals,



wide ears---conveys that one should listen and understand what

ever is heard of .



big head----one should acquire enough knowledge or wisdom that he is capable of.



trunk----discriminating ability of when and what to use i.e the elephant uses diff force to lift a needle or to uproot a tree



tusk-----if two tusks are present...it conveys that there is a boundry within which a man can operate b/w the parameters good and bad

therefore one tusk is broken/removed to represent universal qualities i.e there is nothing like good and bad.



big belly---represents that one should absorb all the experiences that he has undergone.



mouse----the amount of desires the man pocesses, because mouse is supposed to be the greediest animal on earth. it is looking at the lords face asking if he permits him, he is ready to grab the food kept for the lord .



man having born on earth, should have a worldly affair therefore one leg of god is kept on ground and the other leg folded conveying that man should have blissful posture
