Lord Ganesha- the deity, always depicted as the symbol of harmony and peace. He is also known to be associated with victory and success in all endeavors. ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ is celebrated all over India in the honor of the Elephant God. So that with his blessings you can start your every new work in a healthy way and also complete it successfully without having any obstacles.
Though the very physical part of the Elephant God Ganesha suggests triumph, his various body parts convey different life lessons to make you physically & mentally strong . This, in turn, brings you closer your success!
7 of the lessons that we learn from his physical appearance:
1. Minding the Mind
Ganesha’s big elephant head symbolizes- ‘Thinking Big’! Like in the story of winning the celestial mango, where he and lord Muruga went into a competition for it, and Narada announced that whoever will go around the world first, will get it. He went around his parents- Lord Shiva & Devi Parvati, saying that the universe is contained within them, so rounding them is equal to going around the world!! It depicts that if you use your intellect, then success can be easily achieved.
2. Listening More
Ganesha’s big elephant ears represent- ‘Listening more & carefully’! As you all know that elephants have strong hearing powers, you should also listen attentively and minutely. This is the key to gain knowledge and absorb new ideas!
3. Concentrating Hard
Ganesha’s small elephant eyes indicate- ‘Concentrating more’! Only through concentration, you can control your mind in a positive way. If you are able to control your mind, then you are to achieve any desired success in your life!
4. Talking Less
Ganesha has a small mouth, which symbolizes- ‘Talk Less’. If you talk less, you can hear more, think more and perform more accurately. Instead of talking much you need to believe in doing more by valuing your words. You should listen first, think over it, and then only talk!
5. Paying Attention to Details
Ganesha has long elephant trunk, which symbolizes- ‘Pay long attention’! With a great observation power, you can develop greater awareness in every simple circumstance, which will help you in gathering more knowledge. Paying attention to every minute detail is the key to do the best required!
6. Digesting the Good & Bad
Ganesha’s big belly suggests- ‘Digest every good & bad in life’! Elephants are known to eat a lot and also to digest them easily! Like that, you also need to assimilate the varied events you encounter every day in your life. This will help you to remain balanced by not getting attached to them.
7. Knowing your True Self
Ganesha is very powerful and strong while his vehicle is the little mouse! As we all know that the mouse symbolizes doubt and logic, sitting over a mouse lord Ganesha shows that he has a total control over all the doubts and the logics behind those. So, being a strategic leader, you need to practice logic within limits!
Celebrate this ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ by reflecting on the positive messages lord Ganesha has in store for you. These are to motivate you for achieving whatever you want by remaining healthy with a stress-free mind. You should learn to upgrade yourselves to achieve triumph in a firm and peaceful manner.
