Lessons we learnt From Ganesha

Ganesha is considered to be the Lord of letters and learning.[85] In Sanskrit, the word buddhi is a feminine noun that is variously translated as intelligence, wisdom, or intellect.[86] The concept of buddhi is closely associated with the personality of Ganesha, especially in the Puranic period, when many stories stress his cleverness and love of intelligence. One of Ganesha's names in the Ganesha Purana and the Ganesha Sahasranama is Buddhipriya

Don't go on his size, but regard everyone bigger, better and more virtuous than yourself. Always see the goings in the world with a microscopic sight, reflect over them and be serious. Thus you will be able to anticipate the crises that may be fall on you.

Think before speaking out about the others

All the obstacles that crop up in the life are due to the unwanted talks. The reason for showing this type of tongue in Ganesha's idol is that, the people before speaking out about the others, must first take an introspection of oneself. Elephant's tongue is pointed towards its neck instead of outwards, whereas tongue of all other animals, including human beings, keeps on lollying out.

Overcoming obstacles

Overcoming obstacles

Lord Ganesha is also known as Vigneshwara, one who removes obstacles. It is for this reason that he is invoked in times of crisis by believers and this is also why business ventures are started with a puja in his name. Removing obstacles is his religion.
To take this a step further, one must believe that every obstacle can be overcome. One must also make removing obstacles a dharma in one's own life. Whether in your professional or personal life, with the right attitude and a never-say-die attitude, even what seems like the most impossible can be handled without your world falling to pieces. All you need is faith in yourself.

Forgiveness is a virtue

When the moon made fun of Lord Ganesha, Lord Ganesha felt humiliated. He cursed the moon saying that no human would ever look at it again.

The moon frantically asked for forgiveness and Lord Ganesha realized that the punishment was perhaps too harsh forgave the moon despite being insulted by it.

Be Modest

Lord Ganesha is considered one of the most powerful gods in Hinduism, unlike the other gods who choose bejeweled chariots; his vehicle is the humble mouse. The mouse signifies darkness and, the Lord's vehicle, signifies the journey from darkness to light or enlightenment.

Another interpretation is that Ganesha wins hearts through simple methods, and this too holds a lesson. A shiny car or extravagant lifestyle might impress, but to win hearts, the simplest way is through one's actions through simple gestures of affection and respect.

One must finish what one starts

Legend has it that, when Valmiki was reciting the Mahabharata to Lord Ganesha, the pen broke in the middle of writing it. Since Lord Ganesha had the onus of writing the epic he broke his tusk and used it as a pen only to finish what he started.

United we stand

The reason why Lokmanya tilak chose Ganesh Chaturthi to spread national integrity in India is because of the universal appeal Lord Ganesha has across all religions. The colour red smeared all over Ganesha and his devotees on this day also stand for the same lesson as it doesn’t allow anyone to differentiate between people.

Listen More

Listen More

Ganesha has Big Ears, which means listen carefully and more. Elephants are animals that can pick up minute sounds even in the ultrasound domain. Thus, we must listen as the elephant does, minutely and intently. The most important message conveyed by His large ears is to keep the good chatter and ignore the unwanted gossip and mean talks. This will help you live in great peace.
