It is believed in Hindu tradition that Lord Ganesha is the first and most auspicious of all Gods, and it is customary to seek his blessings before embarking on any new venture, educational pursuit or journey. Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, is considered to be the remover of all obstacles in one's path.
As the provider of joy, success, peace, and prosperity, the Lord also manifests in a novel form of 'Panchamukhi Vinayaka'- five faced Ganesha. According to Hindu mythology, the benefits of this idol are increased by five folds, literally! Each head of Panchamukhi Ganesh symbolises the Pancha Koshas or five sheaths in the subtle anatomy of human beings. Worshipping this idol evokes the power to regulate these five senses which include renunciation, divine love, affection, authenticity and brave action. Worshipping Panchamukhi Ganesha will help a devotee attain Anandamaya Kosha, or Sat-Chit-Ananda, the Pure Consciousness. It is believed that placing Panchamukhi Vinayaka towards the east in one's home or office would help to ward off evils and bring prosperity.
