Lord Ganesha Cover
Ganesha, also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations.Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.

Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles (Vighnesha, Vighneshvara, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography.

This God of knowledge and the remover of obstacles is also the older son of Lord Shiva. Lord Ganesha is also called Vinayak ( knowledgeable ) or Vighneshwer (god to remove obstacles). He is worshipped, or at least remembered, in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings and auspiciousness.

Ganesha emerged a distinct deity in clearly recognizable form in the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta Period, although he inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors. His popularity rose quickly, and he was formally included among the five primary deities of Smartism (a Hindu denomination) in the 9th century. A sect of devotees called the Ganapatya, who identified Ganesha as the supreme deity, arose during this period. The principal scriptures dedicated to Ganesha are the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgala Purana, and the Ganapati Atharvashirsa. In his praise the Ganesha Chalisa is sung.

He has four hands, elephant's head and a big belly. His vehicle is a tiny mouse. In his hands he carries a rope (to carry devotees to the truth), an axe (to cut devotees' attachments), and a sweet dessert ball -laddoo- (to reward devotees for spiritual activity). His fourth hand's palm is always extended to bless people.

A unique combination of his elephant-like head and a quick moving tiny mouse vehicle represents tremendous wisdom, intellegence, and presence of mind.

Sekhmet Lioness Headed Goddess Image
ONE OF THE OLDEST AND MOST IMPORTANT DIVINITIES OF THE EGYPTIAN PANTHEON IS THE LIONESS-HEADED "GODDESS", "SEKHMET". IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT SHE WAS ALL OPPOSITES, SUCH AS DARKNESS AND LIGHT, HEAPED INTO ONE. EVERYTHING WAS A PART OF THIS ANCIENT GODDESS. SHE REPRESENTS THE POWER BETWEEN DESTRUCTION AND RENEWAL. SEKHMET, A GODDESS OF WAR, JUSTICE, DESTRUCTION AND HEALING, WAS CALLED THE "POWERFUL ONE", A NAME THAT FIT THE DESTRUCTIVE SIDE OF HER. SHE WEARS THE SOLAR SERPENT, THE SYMBOL OF REGENERATION OVER HER BROW.

SHE WAS KNOWN AS THE "EYE OF RA" AND THOUGHT TO BE BOTH THE DESTRUCTIVE ASPECT OF THE SUN AND THE PROTECTRESS OF THE SUN. SHE WAS A FEROCIOUS DEITY WHO BREATHED FIRE ON HER ENEMIES. ACCORDING TO" THE BOOK OF THE DIVINE COW", SHE ONCE BECAME SO DISGUSTED WITH HUMANITY THAT SHE DECIDED TO SLAUGHTER THE RACE. HER FURY TERRIFIED THE "GODS", WHO DEPUTIZED "RA" TO CALM HER DOWN, AND APPARENTLY HER POWER WAS GREAT ENOUGH NOT ONLY TO ASSIST "OSIRIS" BUT ALSO AT TIMES TO DOMINATE EVEN HIM, AND ACCORDING TO THE "BOOK OF THE DEAD," AT THE TIMES OF STORMS AND GREAT FLOODS SHE HAD POWER EVEN OVER THE GREAT GOD OF THE "UNDERWORLD."

The divine trinity worshipped at Memphis included "Sekhmet", her husband "Ptah", the "god" of arts and crafts, and Her son, "Nefertum", the healing god of flowers and perfume. Sekhmet was feared, but also was held in high esteem.

In the dark night I heard a purring,

Near me something was stirring.

"A VOICE, DEEP-THROATED, SPOKE:"
"I LITTER ARMIES FOR ALL EASTS AND WESTS"AND NORTHS AND SOUTHS:"THEY SUCKLE MY GIRL-GODDESS BREASTS,"AND MY FIERCE MILK DRIPS FROM THEIR MOUTHS."

"THE VOICE SANG:"
"I DO NOT KILL! I, SEKHMET THE LION-HEADED, "BUT BETWEEN MY SOFT HANDS THEY DIE."

"I ASKED:"
O Sekhmet, Lion-headed one,
How long shall warring be?

"AND SEKHMET DEIGNED TO MAKE REPLY:"
"ETERNALLY!"
"BOLD IN MY FAITH I GREW":

Dread goddess-cat, you lie!
Warring shall cease!
My God of love is greater far
Than you!

"HOW GENTLE WAS THE VOICE OF SEKHMET THEN: "
"HE OF THE STAR? "He Whom they called the Prince of Peace-
And slew? "AND SLEW AGAINAND YET AGAIN? "AH YES!SHE SAID. "
"AND ALL ABOUT MY BED"THE NIGHT GREW LAUGHING-RED:"SEKHMET I DID NOT SEE,"
"BUT IN THAT BLEEDING DUSK I HEARD"THAT SEKHMET PURRED."
