I'm looking for more informations/history of ganesh.
So I'm putting this in here for others to check out too,
the above is just some round about information.
However in specific I'm trying to figure out what
the snake has to do with ganesh.

Found a little more about the snake, still looking to see what else.

I love Ganesh..good protective, healing, joyous energy, he has.
I have a little Ganesh statuette under my tv..I like him so much.

Once a psychic told me she kept seeing an elephant looking over my son..with my son..
He likes elephants..always has.
I started to get the feeling Ganesh was involved somehow.

Crystal from one of my favorite wisdom sites, Crystal Links (she's just awesome..a very warm soul), talks about the snake at the bottom of her Ganesha article here

"The symbology behind the mouse and snake and Ganesha's big belly and its relationship to the moon on his birthday is highly philosophic. The whole cosmos is known to be the belly of Ganesha. Parvati is the primordial energy. The seven realms above, seven realms below and seven oceans, are inside the cosmic belly of Ganesha, held together by the cosmic energy (kundalini ) symbolized as a huge snake which Ganesha ties around Him."

Yeah I was looking for some of that information there.
Thanks bionic, and yeah ganesh seems like one fabulous deity.
Thats cool you have a little figurine of ganesh.
And interesting what the psychic told you, ganesh
represents true good fortune....
I was looking this information up because I had a few
dreams in a row that directed me to, or I had no idea
who ganesh was.

When I saw the picture I was kind of wondering if he contained the universe in his belly, or something like that. Reminds me of the universe tarot card.

Well there are as many renditions but this is the one I like/used.

If you put it on its side it looks like a big self-aware eye looking at itself and the universe is just a glint in its eye.

you know that "eye" when not on it's side, is suppose to represent a woman's vagina, right?
It's an ancient Goddess/nature religion symbol.
It's in a-lot of religious symbols..especially early ones, especially ones involving a female
it represents birth..of creation..birth is a female thing..hence the vagina/womb symbolism

This is along the same lines as why the moon represents the Goddess, and Mary, the female, in general. Its because a woman's menstral cycle runs with the moons cycle. And again the mensgtal cycle is a part of birth which is creation. Creation is a form of birth.

I know ya'll already know this stuff..but felt the need to remind
