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 attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify.
Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles,the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rituals and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as patron of letters and learning during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and explain his distinct iconography. Ganesha emerged as a distinct deity in the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta Period, although he inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors.
He was formally included among the five primary deities of Smartism a Hindu denomination in the 9th century. Family and consorts Though Ganesha is popularly held to be the son of Shiva and Parvati, the Puranic myths give different versions about his birth.
He may have been created by Parvati,or by Shiva and Parvati,or may have appeared mysteriously and was discovered by Shiva and Parvati. The family includes his brother the war god Kartikeya, who is also called Subramanya, Skanda, Murugan and other names. Regional differences dictate the order of their births.
In northern India, Skanda is generally said to be the elder, while in the south, Ganesha is considered the first born. In northern India, Skanda was an important martial deity from about BCE to about CE, when worship of him declined significantly in northern India. Ganesha's marital status, the subject of considerable scholarly review, varies widely in mythological stories. One pattern of myths identifies Ganesha as an unmarried brahmacari. This view is common in southern India and parts of northern India.
He also may be shown with a single consort or a nameless servant Sanskrit: dasi. In northern Indian variants of this story, the sons are often said to be Subha auspiciousness and Labha. A sahasranama is a Hindu hymn of praise in which a deity is referred by 1, or more different names.
