About Ganesh and this necklace:
Ganesh is one of the best known and loved deities in the Hindu pantheon of gods, and indeed is the most recognized of the Hindu gods outside of India.
Ganesh (also spelled Ganesa or Ganesha and known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Pillaiyar) is the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles of both material and spiritual kinds. Interestingly, he also places obstacles in the path of those who need to be checked.
Because of these attributes, Ganesh is widely revered by almost all castes and in all parts of India, regardless of any other spiritual affiliations. His image is found everywhere, in many different forms, and he is invoked before the undertaking of any task.
Ganesh is also associated with the first Chakra, or energy wheel, which underpins all of the other Chakras and represents conservation, survival and material well-being. He is considered to be a patron of the arts and sciences and of letters. Devotees believe that if Ganesha is worshiped, he grants success, prosperity and protection against adversity. Ganesh is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride.
He is popularly held to be the son of Shiva and Parvati. The elephant's head symbolizes unmatched wisdom and the gaining of knowledge through reflection and listening and he is often placed facing doorways or worn as a pendant to keep away the unworthy.
Ganesh also became the principal deity of traders and merchants who went out of India seeking commercial trade. Buddhism has a particular affinity for Ganesh, representing as he does the kindest of principals associated with personal success.
Ganesh is also often associated with the goddess of luck and prosperity, Lakshmi, and the two form a typical motif on many protective Indian amulets, providing a double benefit to the wearer in the form of success and wealth married together.
