Ganesh is one of the most worshipped and popular Hindu deities. If you have a meditation room, why not add a wall hanging of Ganesh to it? Ganesh is a sign of auspiciousness, the remover of obstacles, and also the god of learning and wisdom. He is fond of reading and is an excellent writer—he was a scribe and wrote the Mahbharata poem in its entirety. By placing a Ganesh wall hanging in your home, you can bring in positive energy. 

Almost everyone knows Ganesh as the god with the elephant head but not everyone knows that he used to have a human head. The son of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva, Ganesh is the giver of intellect and wisdom. It’s not surprising to find statues and wall hangings of Ganesh in study areas. The best place to put a wall hanging of Ganesh is right by your home’s entrance as he can ward off evil. Make sure the wall hanging is above eye level. As much as possible, treat Ganesh wall hangings like you would Ganesh statues. Here are a few rules for placement to keep in mind: 

  • If you plan to put up multiple wall hangings of Ganesh or other Hindu gods, make sure that there is at least an inch of space between them.
  • Don’t put a wall hanging of Ganesh on the floor or at the foot of your bed.
  • Keep your Ganesh wall hanging away from leather as leather is made from dead animals. 

It’s also important to consider the color of your Ganesh wall hanging. If you are looking to bring in peace and prosperity into your home, opt for white Ganesh wall hangings. If you desire self-growth, choose a vermillion-colored Ganesh wall hanging.
