Lord Ganesha Writing the Mahabharta
Ganesha, also spelled Ganesh, also called Ganapati, elephant-headed Hindu god of beginnings, who is traditionally worshipped before any major enterprise and is the patron of intellectuals, bankers, scribes, and authors. His name means both “Lord of the People” (gana means the common people) and “Lord of the Ganas” (Ganesha is the chief of the ganas, the goblin hosts of Shiva). Like a rat and like an elephant, Ganesha is a remover of obstacles. Legends say that Ganesha wrote the Mahabharata, as it was recited to him by sage Veda Vyasa on the condition that Ganesha would not only write it, but understand every verse.
