Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles, embodiment of wisdom, the bestower of happines. He is worshipped first. His Names are repeated first before any auspicious work is begun, before beginning any kind of worship. He is the Lord of power and wisdom. He is the eldest son of Lord Siva, and the elder brother of Skanda or Kartikeya. He is the energy of Lord Siva, and so He is called the son of Sankara and Uma.
