#1 Postby archit » Mon Sep 09, 2013 10:27 am has significance in every aspect of our life, So how can business remain untouched. We can learn so much from every body part of Lord Ganesha

Elephant head, small mouth, and large ears: The large head of an elephant symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and a discriminating intellect that one must possess to be successful in Business. The small mouth represents you should choose your words very carefully while interacting with your external or internal customer. The large ears signify that a perfect person is the one who possesses a great capacity to listen to others and assimilate ideas, every business person should be a good listener if he wants to be successful in life.

The trunk and two tusks with the left tusk broken:
There is no known human instrument that has an operating range as wide as that of an elephant's trunk. It can uproot a tree and yet lift a needle off the ground. Likewise, the Business men must be strong enough to face the ups and downs of the volatile market and yet delicate enough to explore the subtle realms of the inner world. The two tusks denote the two aspects of the human personality, wisdom and emotion. The right tusk represents wisdom and the left tusk represents emotion. The broken left tusk conveys the idea that one must conquer emotions with wisdom to attain perfection in business.

Elephant eyes:
The elephant eyes are said to possess natural deceptiveness that allows them to perceive objects to be bigger than what they really are. Thus it symbolizes Business man should have capacity to see opportunity even if it is small.

A human body with a big belly:
The human body possesses a human heart, which is a symbol of kindness and compassion toward all. This is something which is lacking in our society, every one is concerned about their own profit and do not want to contribute for development of others, one should do business with with purity, peace, and truthfulness. The big belly signifies that a perfect Business men should have a large capacity to face all pleasant and unpleasant experiences of the Business and should be able to sustain in difficult time.

A mouse sitting near the feet of Ganesha and gazing at the tray of Laddus:
A mouse sitting near the feet of Ganesha indicates that a perfect person is one who has conquered his (or her) ego. A mouse gazing at the Laddus, but not consuming them, denotes that a purified or controlled ego can live in the world without being affected by the worldly temptations. You will always have choice in business to adopt lucrative wrong way if you have self control you will always choose right path.

Right foot dangling over the left foot:
As stated above, the left side of the body symbolizes emotion and the right side symbolizes reason and knowledge. The right foot dangling over the left foot illustrates that in order to be successful Business men one should utilize knowledge and reason to overcome emotions.

Wish you all very happy Ganesh Chaturthi, May lord Ganesha Give you wisdom, good luck and happiness forever.

#2 Postby pearl » Mon Sep 09, 2013 10:10 am Chaturthi is the Hindu festival celebrated on the birthday (rebirth) of Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati.
It is believed that Lord Ganesh bestows his presence on earth for all his devotees during this festival. It is the day Shiva declared his son Ganesha as superior to all the gods, barring Vishnu, Lakshmi, Shiva and Parvati. Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel.

Ganesha is worshipped for 10 days from Bhadrapada Shudha Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi, On the 11th day, the statue is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, and fanfare to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of his devotees. Lord Ganesha is known as Vigahan Harta.. It symbolize, that Ganesha brings fortune to your place, this is the reason ganesha is considered to be superior of al gods & every pray, mantras & chanting of god starts with Lord Ganesha.

We pray ganesha, while starting a day, starting a business, to help us in dark time & give us success to stand all obstacles, with peace, patience & to be gentle as him. There are vastu attached with the Ganesha trunk, it is said that statue of Ganesha should have his trunk on Right side & should be kept in a way, keeping back towards door of statue, so to maximise the fortune coming in. Ganesha give up his ego & have accepted the face of elephant, have fought Lord Shiva, creator of world for Parvati. To be successful, we need to learn to give up our ego & grow with others.
