The discipline of Vedic astrology upholds the Hindu god, Lord Ganesha as its primary deity. One of the most easily identifiable figures in the Hindu pantheon, Ganesha is depicted in the form of a child, with the head of an elephant. The remover of obstacles and the lord of beginnings and success, a popular sloka dedicated to Ganesha describes his form as so:
“Vakra Tunda Mahakaaya Koti Surya Samaprababha
Nirvignam Kurume Deva Sarva Kaaryeshu Sarvataa”
This, when translated, reads:
“Salutations to Sri Ganesha, the Lord with a curved trunk, and a large body, whose splendour is that of a million suns;
O Deva, please free my deeds of any obstacles, and extend to me your blessings so my work may be fulfilled.”
