Ganesh (Phra Pikanesa)

This is a popular Yant design. Ganesh, also known to Hindus as Vinayaka or Ganapati, has an elephant head. He has been worshipped for centuries in the Hindu religion. There are several versions of how Ganesh came to be, some believe that Ganesh was a child conceived by Shiva and Parvati while others say that the Goddess Parvati made Ganesh because she was unhappy because her husband, Shiva would not allow her any privacy. She breathed life into an effigy and called it Ganesh, her son, instructing him to block the path of anyone who tried to enter her chambers. Later when Shiva approached his house, he noticed the boy Ganesh and thought he was spying on his wife. Outraged, he produced a sword and lopped off Ganesh’s head. Parvati was heartbroken and ordered her husband to cut off the head of the first living thing he saw and attach it to Ganesh. It so happened that the first living thing Shiva encountered was an elephant. Another says that Ganesh was born by the elephant headed goddess Malini after she drank some of Parvati’s bath water. This design is popular with people connected to the arts such as singers, actors and musicians. It is associated with material wealth and also guarding valuable assets.
