In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesh is the son of Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati, the husband of Bharati, Riddhi and Siddhi. Ganesh removes all obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors. He is an archetype of Wisdom and Beneficence. The Hindu deity in a human form but with the head of an elephant — represents the power of the Supreme Being that removes obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors. For this reason, Hindus worship Ganesha first before beginning any religious, spiritual or worldly activity The mouse is the vehicle of Ganesha, signifying that one must control ego in order for wisdom to shine forth. Story of Ganeshaâ€™s Head : Once Parvati, wife of Shiva, using the scurf of her body made the figure of a boy and breathed life into him. She asked the boy to guard the house while she bathed. Siva was absent at this point. When he returned, the boy bared the way and in anger Siva cut off his head. When Parvati emerged from her bathing and saw the corps, she said that she considered the boy her son. Shiva promised to replace the head and sent his attendants to bring the head of anyone found sleeping with their head pointing north. The attendants found a baby elephant in that position and bought his head, which Shiva attached and brought the boy back to life and told Parvati that prayers will be offered to Ganesha before any ceremony.
