God of Scholarship, Arts, and Science.
Not only is he the bringer of happiness and prosperity, but great-bodied Ganesh is also the God of Scholarship. Here he indulges in the pleasure of a book, and offers his blessing to all who delight in written knowledge.
With the possible exceptions of Jesus and Buddha, no other Divinity is more widely worshipped than gentle Ganesh.
