Lord Ganesha is one of the most revered gods in Hinduism and He is considered the First among all deities by Hindus. The Lord is worshipped first among all gods and he is invoked with the following mantra:
Ganesha Mantra: Vakratunda Mahakaya Surya Koti Samaprabha |
Nirvighnam Kurumeydeva Sarva Karyeshu Sarvada |
("O Lord Ganesha of Large Body, Curved Trunk, With the Brilliance of a Million Suns, Make All My Work Free Of Obstacles, Always.")
The Lord is also known as Vakratunda (Lord with Curved Trunk). Lord Ganesha is revered as the son of Shiva and Parvati, and is always invoked first in most rituals. All ceremonies, religious or secular, begin with an invocation to Lord Ganesha. 'Om Shri Ganeshaya Namaha', literally meaning "Ganesha, I pray to you".
He is also known as Vighneshvara or Vighnaharta, the Lord of Success and Destroyer of evils and obstacles.
According to the Narasimha Purana, if the Lord is not worshipped at the beginning of a ceremony, he creates obstacles for the performers. Therefore, no matter what the occasion or ceremony be, Ganesha is worshipped before all other deities. For this reason, He is called Vighneshwara, the Remover of all Obstacles. Ganesha's Vehicle (Vahana) is the Mouse, symbolic of gnawing its way through everything, thus depicting the God's ability to cut through all obstacles.
