From time immemorial, the people of India have believed that animals and birds are an integral part of life on earth and are loved, nurtured, and even deified.

Every important Hindu god or goddess has a vahana or vehicle to carry him or her through the heavens, and these vahanas are animals or birds. They not only carry around their divine owners, but also play an important role in their lives, battles, triumphs and adventures. Hindu gods and goddesses often took the form of an animal or a bird to accomplish various missions on earth, or to test a devotee’s faith and character.

Ganpati Gets an Elephant’s Head
