Ganesh is not an animal; certainly not an elephant. But it is his elephant head that identifies him.
Ganesha is not mentioned in Indian scripture until the Puranas (ca. 500 CE) and was not significant in popular culture until the mid-15th century.
Also called Ganapati, in Hindu practice he is propitiated first, before the worship of other gods may take place. This accords with his role as Siddhidatta or "bestower of accomplishments." He has only one complete tusk; the other is broken -- lost in a fight in which he would not flinch before a thrown axe. His mount is a mooshika or shrew. (Some consider it is a mouse or even, a rat.)
In his four hands he often holds a conch shell, a discus, a club, and a lotus -- the same attributes that characterize Vishnu. Often his inner palm displays a red auspicious swastika mark.
In South India, Ganesha is worshipped as Pillaiyar which in Tamil means noble son and he is often called by that epithet in the Buddhist context. In India and Shri Lanka, prayers to him are always said before those to other deities.
Ganesha means "lord of ganas," Shiva's company who are the components believed to combine to make the world of forms.
Some also infer in him the spectral presence of Brahmanaspati. The Yagnavalka Smritis suggest that Ganesha emerged from the Vinayakas ... dreaded spirits who create hindrances. Hence they were propitiated before beginning any important task.
He is regarded both as a remover and as a maker of hindrances. It is as Vighnaharta or Vigneshwar (remover of, or lord over, obstacles) that he is invoked at the beginning of any enterprise, but as a maker of obstacles, Vighnakarta, he is also propitiated.
Ganesh is a focus for some Tibetan Buddhist practices in both regards. In depictions of the six-armed protector, Mahakala, he is being trampled by the Dharma Protector, but he does not appear distressed. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche saw Ganesh as Vinayaka: he is the obstacle of the continuous chatter of thoughts so disturbing to concentration.
He is probably the most widely worshipped deity in that region of the world, and not only among Hindus, as we have seen. All ceremonies, religious or secular, but especially before beginning work on any religious writing start by the pronouncement, Aum Shri Ganeshaya Namaha. Greeting and invitation cards that are sent out on any happy occasion invariably bear his image.
