Ganesa

Lord of Obstacles, Lord of Beginnings

Paul B. Courtright

In this first comprehensive study of Ganesa--the elephant-headed god popular throughout India and Hindu Southeast Asia--Courtright explores the god's many and changing dimensions, covering not only the mythology but also the ritual, the political uses, and the modern and Vedic manifestations of the deity.
