Ganesh is believed to remove obstacles, bring good fortune and blessings to new undertakings. As a patron deity of art and science, he is associated with wisdom and discernment.
In Japan, the deity Kangiten is considered to be the Japanese Buddhist form of Ganesh. This is because he also has an elephant’s head and human body.
