Ganesha is a very popular god of Hindus. Hindu tradition states that Ganesha is a god of wisdom, success and good luck. He is also giver of different types of favours. The Hindu tradition calls Ganesha as the Vighneshvara. “Vighneshvara” in Sanskrit language means one who is the lord of obstacles or difficulties.
Ganesha Statue with Left Side Turned Trunk is also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka. He is one of the best-known and most worshiped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Nepal. Lord Ganesha is known by many attributes, but his elephant head makes him easy to identify. He holds a noose, goad, a tusk and boon-giving gesture in his back-left, back-right, front-right and front-left hands and rides a mouse as his vehicle.
Lord Ganesha’s noose indicates that he is capable of liberating us from a noose of infinite birth and death cycle. The noose also suggests us not to get attached to material comforts. The goad shows the Lord’s nigraha shakti(power to subdue/neutralize) all evils and obstacles.
Trunk is towards his left side accessing a laddu(sweet ball). It represents moon and the cool power of ida nadi in our psychic body. This Ganesha helps us to access the fruit of our work in the material world and he also gives the fruits to us very easily with his trunk! In other words, laddu(sweet ball) indicates all material comforts. Since he enjoys the sweet, he will surely bestow them to you too. This why if we need to enjoy material prosperity and comforts, we need to worship and pray Lord Ganesha with left-sided trunk enjoying a sweet addu! So, Lord Ganesha with left-sided trunk provides us bhoga (material enjoyment).
