Ganesha,the HinduGod, who is originated from the 'Aumkar' is the son of Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati,has features of an elephant like, a curved trunk,big ears,a huge stomach and body of a human being.Ganesha became the Lord  of all existing beings (Ganas) after winning the contest with his brother Kartikaya.

The word 'Ganesh' is formed by union of 'Gana+Ish' ie the God(Ish) of Ganas(Troops),Similarly 'Ganapati'=Gana+Pati ie the Leader of Ganas.

Ganesha appeared in a clearly recognizable form in the 4th and 5th centuries,during the Gupta period.Ganesha images were prevalent in many parts ofIn 9th century,Ganesha was included in the five primary deityies,in 'Smartism',one of the Hindu Sects.

The principal scriptures dedicated to Ganesha are the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgal Purana, and the Ganapati Atharvashirsha.
 

According to the Kundalini Yoga ,Ganesha resides in the first Chakra,called 'Muladhara'(main support) ie is the base of the spine.Thus, Ganesha has a permanent abode in every being at the Muladhara. Ganesha holds, supports and guides all other chakras, thereby  governing the forces that propel the wheel of life.
 

Ganesha's every feature is symbolic.

Elephant head represents the mighty strength of many elephants and the human form is a symbol of wisdom,  brilliance and abilities. The mouse is the symbol of a sharp mind.Ganesha's four hands represent four directions of the universe.He carries a rope,in his hands to carry his devotees to the truth.

An axe to cut the devotees' attachments and the sweet dessert ball " Laddoo " for devotees,as blessings.
 

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the 'Mahabharat'.Shri.Ganesha's fourth hand's palm is always extended to bless dissiples.
 

Shri.Ganesha is the symbol of  auspiciousness He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and remover of obstacles.Ganesha is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride.He is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations.
