As most of us who love Shakta and other Tantric and Yogic traditions know, Ganesha is an elephant-headed God of Wisdom who is invoked to remove obstacles. As the God of Karma and Dharma, He also brings obstacles to reroute us when we have strayed from our path. Ganesha is invoked at the beginning of any ritual or undertaking. He is the one who opens the gates-- both external and internal ones!
