In India if you do not have time to enter a temple for a one-o-one chat with the God, then you can very well request His assistant or attendant by whispering your messages in his ears. You are rest assured, your messages will be conveyed to the God.
Yes, when there is a long queue to meet God and you are short on time, you can bribe His assistant !
If you find the waiting queue very discouraging….
take a shortcut by whispering your wishes in his ears……..
make sure his other ear is covered so that the words remain within him.
(Ek kaan se sunkar doosre se na nikaal de)
At the end of the day when no one is disturbing the God, the vahana* will pour out all the messages of worshippers in front of Him.
Isn’t Hindu mythology fascinating ?
Note:- A mouse is a vahana (a mount, an assistant or attendant) of Lord Ganesha. Ganesha is often shown riding on or attended by a mouse or rat. One can find it near any Ganesha idol and in front of most Ganesha temples.
Location:– Ganapati Temple, Ganapatipule
And the mouse is made of fibre glass.
