Part of a series on Indian gods and goddesses

Ganesha, the elephant-headed god, is easily the most recognizable and loveable of Hindu deities. But pinpointing his various attributes is not quite so simple. He is at once the portly, merry, childlike god and the sage, complex philosopher. He is the presiding deity of material wealth and the lord of spirituality. He removes all impediments for his devotees but creates all manner of difficulties for the transgressors, man or god. And associated with every aspect of Ganesha -- be it his extraordinary birth, his elephant head, his broken tusk, his vehicle (the mouse), his appetite, his anger -- are scores of myths, each more colorful than the other.

Summary: my favorite in this series...
Comment: a great introduction to Ganesha, this small book is packed with great stories and subtle detail. the author's presentation of Ganesha's journey from a primitive concept to his current grand stature is tremendous. his journey also provides a small window into the continuous flux that is the Hindu spiritual path. the retelling of Ganesha's many myths are well written and wonderfully entertaining. i have already suggested this book to others and will continue to do so.

Summary: Fun, Informative and easy to read
Comment: This book was a nice easy read. It is well written and flows. My knowledge of hinduism is fairly limited. This book was a good start on learning more about Ganesha, his role in the religion and worship. This book is perfect for someone who does not know much about Ganesha and would like an intro to his stories. I only wish the books in this series were available in paperback.
