Ganesh is a significant deity in Hinduism, and he is popular in Buddhism as well. Ganesh is the son of Shiva and Parvati and it is said that Ganesh's head was replaced with an elephant head when he came between Shiva and Parvati in a fight and so Shiva swiped off his head and replaced it with that of an elephant. Ganesh is the Lord of Success. Elephants in general have a great history in Tibetan Buddhism, the elephant is strong and so it is a symbol of physical strength and also mental strength. The idea in Buddhism is that one can practice the dharma and calm the mind, in order to access the wisdom in each of us.
