Introduction to Lord Ganapati

Runa Vimochana Ganapati

Ganapati or Ganesha is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. He is hailed as a remover of obstacles and a harbinger of success, and is both loved and venerated. He has an elephant face, but also has a primordial form with a human head. He is celebrated as a hero of strength, as a happy dancer, as a sweet child and many more. It is considered a good custom to seek his blessings while starting any endeavor or undertaking any venture. Ganapati veneration is done from very ancient times, and Ganapatyam, the Ganapati worship, has been established by Saint Adi Shankara, as one of the six fundamental forms of worship in Hindu religion.

Significance of Runa Vimochana Ganapati

Runa Vimochana Ganapati is regarded as the 25th among the 32 different forms of Ganapati. The word ‘Runa’ or ‘Rina’ means ‘debt,’ and ‘Mochana’ is ‘getting relieved from.’ Runa Vimochana Ganapati thus denotes the merciful Lord, who helps to mitigate the devotees’ debts – both worldly debts and also the Karmic debts. Thus the grace of this Lord can help to overcome sins, guilt and worldly bondages, and show the way to salvation. He is also referred to as Rinamochaka, which also means the same. He is normally depicted as a crystal image, smooth, pure and milky white in complexion, and dressed in red silk. He has four arms, in which he holds his broken tusk, a goad, a noose and a rose apple, his favorite fruit.

This form of Ganesha can be seen as a painting in the Kerala capital Thiruvananthapuram and as a sculpture in some temples in Mysore region, where all the 32 Ganapati forms are on display. However, as an idol form, the Lord can be worshipped in the Kapileshwar temple, on the banks of the sacred tank Kapila Theertham, at the foothills of the holy Tirupati Mountains, in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Pooradam star, also known as Purvashada Nakshatra, is said to be related to Runa Vimochana Ganapati.
