Ganesh (गणेश, Ganesha, Ganesa) is one of the most loved and easily recognized of Hindu deities. The elephant god is the Remover of Obstacles, lord of births and other beginnings, guardian of thresholds and granter of boons. The very sight of him is said to bring blessings. Because he both guards thresholds and removes obstacles, his support is very helpful when we are going through changes.
The hamsa is an ancient protective amulet that originated Northern Africa. Hamsa means five in Arabic, referring to the five fingers of the human hand.
