Indian Sandstone Ganesha Elephant God Statue
Ganesh is sure the deity that is very easy to identify. While it may take a bit of research to know which Buddha you have in your home as well as the meaning of specific Buddha mudras, it is much easier with Ganesh. The obvious recognition factor is visual—Ganesh is the deity with the elephant head. Let's see why is it so, as well as why Ganesh is known as the “Remover of Obstacles.”
The sculpture of Ganesh can be used for good feng shui. Feng shui is the art of creating harmonious, healthy, and prosperous environments and is open to using any symbols, images, and ideas that work for the homeowner.
If you look at feng shui from the strict classical perspective or from a scholarly point of view, then Ganesh is really not a classical or typical feng shui cure at all. All classical feng shui cures are based on Chinese history and mythology, and Ganesh belongs to the pantheon of Indian gods. So logically, vastu shastra will have more to say about the energy of Ganesh in your home.
Good feng shui means good energy, and in its essence, the energy cannot be bound to any cultural traditions or symbols. If the energy of Ganesh speaks to your friend, meaning she feels connected to it in some way and receives a certain quality of energy from it — be it protection, blessings or good fortune — then chances are Ganesh is an excellent feng shui cure for her home.
