10 lessons I learn from #Ganesha! A thread!

Small Eyes!

#1: No matter what the obstacles in life, they should never cloud our vision, the aims should never dwindle, those hopes that harness our dreams should never die.

@BharatTemples_ @rightwingchora
Large Ears!

#2: Keep ears open to the realities of life and listen to your inner voice. Listening makes us humble in a way that we develop the ability to accept cases put forward by others.

His head is huge; He is a patron of learning and wisdom and is often seen holding a feather pen in His hand.

#3 Ganesha says --> The sky of spirituality has no limits,
flap your wings of wisdom and see yourself rise in a blissful flight!
