Ganesh as the God of Music and great categorizer of all that can be counted or comprehended. If the Gods created us in their image, then creation must be a holy act itself. It is good to hold this remover of obstacles in mind when beginning to create that loveliest art form, music. Much good flows from this benevolent Deity once he knows what we have in mind.
In Indian music, the drone of the tamboura represents the eternal nature of the universe. The melody of the sitar represents the lyrical manifestation of the individual, and the mṛdingam represents the dance of all life.
