About the Book
Ganesha is probably the most popular god in India among the Hindus and was accepted by the Buddhist

and Jaina as also by the Tantrics. His very therianthropic from evokes curiosity and many attempts have

been made to explain it on the basis of literary testimony which, however, is a later fabrication. Relevant

archaeological testimony, however, was largely ignored. But it should be emphasized that only

archaeology offers reliable data which has been employed here for the first time. It very convincingly

explains the rise of the elephant- headed divinity from a sacred animal and an animal totem to the exalted

position of a cult deity in Hindu pantheon. This long journey of the god from gaja to gana to Ganesa to

Maha- Ganesa and a cult deity, as great as Siva and Vishnu, is truly amazing. His popularity in a large

measure is due to his being a vighma-karta (obstacle-creator) changing into a voghna- harta (obstacle-

remover), when properly propitiated Wherever Indians went and settled, they took Ganesa with them for

removing obstacles, and therefore Ganesa is the only divinity who can truly be called the God of

Asia.
