Ganesha is the pot-bellied, benevolent son of Shiva and Parvati that is a favorite among many who read or are told the mythical stories from India. For the advanced sages and mystics, he takes on epic proportions. He is the entire universe contained in a single form. He is Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva unified into one figure. In some of the Puranas, he is an aspect of Krishna as Parvati's older brother. When Brahma can't create the universe, Ganesha comes to his aid. When Vishnu is asked to destroy demons, it is Ganesha who shows him how to accomplish the task. In us, he sits at the base of the spine where every energy channel in the subtle body is connected to his location there.
