I adore the primeval Lord Govinda, whose lotus feet are always held by Ganesa upon the pair of tumult protruding from his elephant head in order to obtain power for his function of destroying all the obstacles on the path of progress of the three worlds.
The power of destroying all obstacles to mundane prosperity has been delegated to Ganesa who is the object of worship to those who are eligible to worship him. He has obtained a rank among the five gods as Brahma possessing mundane quality. The self-same Ganesa is a god in possession of delegated power by infusion of the divine power. All his glory rests entirely on the grace of Govinda.
