32 names of Ganesh

Vinayaka( Ganesha) is the deity who removes all bad qualities, instills good qualities and confers peace on the devotee who meditates on him. Vinayaka means that he is totally master of himself. Who has no master above, and does not depend on anyone. Vinayaka is also called Ganapati. This term means he is the lord of the gana (Team) - a class of divine entities. This term also means that he is the master of the intellect and discriminating power in man. He possesses great intelligence and knowledge. Such knowledge issues from a pure and sacred mind.

The mouse (rat) is the vehicle of Ganesh. Ganesh is Big and mouse is small, so what is the inner significance of the mouse ? The mouse has a keen sense of smell. The mouse also symbolizes the darkness of night. The mouse can see well in the dark. As Vinayaka's vehicle the mouse signifies an object that leads man from darkness to light. The Vinayaka-principle, thus, means that which removes all the bad qualities, practices and thoughts in men and inculcates good qualities, good conduct and good thoughts.
