The Greeks and Romans were known to worship Ganesh in the name of Vignahar. In Cambodia, Japan, China, Burma, Tibet, Sri Lanka and several other countries, Ganesha is worshipped in both the Shiva and Buddhist traditions. Excavations in Russia, America and China also found Ganesha sculptures. Clearly Lord Ganesha’s worship has not been limited to India, but is practiced worldwide. ✨In the Shri Ganesha Purana, Ganesha is described in each Yuga. 🐘Kruta Yuga – Ganesha appeared with 10 hands and is sitting on a Lion (indicating that Lord Ganesha appeared as Adi Parashakti with 10 hands), as Heramba.
