From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Ganesha (Sanskrit: ????; IAST: Ga?esa; About this sound listen (help·info)), also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati (Sanskrit: ?????; IAST: ga?apati), Vinayaka (Sanskrit: ??????; IAST: Vinayaka), and Pillaiyar, is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India. Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles (Vighnesha (Sanskrit: ???????; IAST: Vighnesa), Vighneshvara (Sanskrit: ??????????; IAST: Vighnesvara)), patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography. Ganesha emerged a distinct deity in clearly recognizable form in the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta Period, although he inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors. His popularity rose quickly, and he was formally included among the five primary deities of Smartism (a Hindu denomination) in the 9th century. A sect of devotees called the Ganapatya, (Sanskrit: ???????; IAST: ga?apatya), who identified Ganesha as the supreme deity, arose during this period. The principal scriptures dedicated to Ganesha are the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgala Purana, and the Ganapati Atharvashirsa. Ganesha has many other titles and epithets, including Ganapati and Vigneshvara. The Hindu title of respect Shri (Sanskrit: ????; IAST: sri; also spelled Sri or Shree) is often added before his name. One popular way Ganesha is worshipped is by chanting a Ganesha Sahasranama, a litany of "a thousand names of Ganesha". Each name in the sahasranama conveys a different meaning and symbolises a different aspect of Ganesha. At least two different versions of the Ganesha Sahasranama exist; one version is drawn from the Ganesha Purana, a Hindu scripture venerating Ganesha. The name Ganesha is a Sanskrit compound, joining the words gana (Sanskrit: ??; IAST: ga?a), meaning a group, multitude, or categorical system and isha (Sanskrit: ??; IAST: isa), meaning lord or master. The word gana when associated with Ganesha is often taken to refer to the ganas, a troop of semi-divine beings that form part of the retinue of Shiva (IAST: Siva). The term more generally means a category, class, community, association, or corporation. Some commentators interpret the name "Lord of the Ganas" to mean "Lord of Hosts" or "Lord of created categories", such as the elements. Ganapati (Sanskrit: ?????; IAST: ga?apati), a synonym for Ganesha, is a compound composed of ga?a, meaning "group", and pati, meaning "ruler" or "lord". The Amarakosha, an early Sanskrit lexicon, lists eight synonyms of Ganesha : Vinayaka, Vighnaraja (equivalent to Vignesha), Dvaimatura (one who has two mothers), Ga?adhipa (equivalent to Ganapati and Ganesha), Ekadanta (one who has one tusk), Heramba, Lambodara (one who has a pot belly, or, literally, one who has a hanging belly), and Gajanana (IAST: gajanana) ; having the face of an elephant). Vinayaka (Sanskrit: ??????; IAST: vinayaka) is a common name for Ganesha that appears in the Pura?as and in Buddhist Tantras. This name is reflected in the naming of the eight famous Ganesha temples in Maharashtra known as the Ashtavinayak (a??avinayaka). The names Vignesha (Sanskrit: ???????; IAST: vighnesa) and Vigneshvara (Sanskrit: ??????????; vighnesvara) (Lord of Obstacles) refers to his primary function in Hindu mythology as the master and remover of obstacles (vighna). Ganesha has been represented with the head of an elephant since the early stages of his appearance in Indian art. Puranic myths provide many explanations for how he got his elephant head. One of his popular forms, Heramba-Ganapati, has five elephant heads, and other less-common variations in the number of heads are known. While some texts say that Ganesha was born with an elephant head, in most stories he acquires the head later. The most recurrent motif in these stories is that Ganesha was born with a human head and body and that Shiva beheaded him when Ganesha came between Shiva and Parvati. Shiva then replaced Ganesha's original head with that of an elephant. Details of the battle and where the replacement head came from vary according to different sources. In another story, when Ganesha was born, his mother, Parvati, showed off heKhaaaaaan!!!!
So I got royally fucked by the Powers that Be at work today. As some of you may know we are both working now and doing the baby juggle. Brandi is on a 6AM-2PM shift and I am on a 2:30PM-8:30 shift. I transferred to an office 20 km away (just over 12 miles for you Mercs) specifically for the fact that they had an evening shift. Just as I got there they have just moved from a 10:00 end time to 8:30. There's no way they're going to go any earlier if they just changed it right? So we have an all staff meeting today and they announced that in two weeks (Christmas eve) they would be canceling the evening shift. When I was working full time I was getting paid for 7.5 hours. Currently I work a 6 hour shift and get a late shift premium essentially getting paid for 7 hours...not too bad of a pay cut, considering taxes I'm probably breaking even. As of Christmas though the end of my shift will be 6:00, thus I'm going to a 3.5 hour day. An effective 50% pay cut. As Brandi can't really drop her hours much more than she's already done we now have to find a way to make this work. Living in Downtown Vancouver is expensive. We've always known this and been OK with it. We've talked about moving in the future because paying a lot of rent sucks. Losing $1200 a month (my guesstimate of what this shift change will do to us) means we can't afford to live in our apartment anymore. Now we get to try and find a place, pack, and move all during Christmas/New Years. Not to mention the fact that with the 2010 Olympics around the corner finding a decent cheap place to rent is going to be lots of fun. It's supposed to snow on Friday. I'm not looking forward to moving in the snow. Child care won't work, even if we could jump the two year waiting list (since we're not on any) it's $1000 a week for child care, me working less hours is a $300 loss so even if we could get child care we're still losing money. We're going to see if Brandi can't work from home a couple hours a day so I can start a little earlier. Take our vacation time a little each day to try and soak costs. If we move to the city both our offices are in it means that one of us doesn't have to pay for transit and we're both closer to our offices so less gas. Now it's time to look at expenditures and say bye bye to things that aren't essential (goodbye World of Warcraft, buying DVD's, boardgames, nice internet, strippers, going out to movies, new computer, new camera lenses, underbust corset for Brandi, gaming supplies). At least until Isobel turns 3-4 years old and she can go to school. Shit. I'm looking at a place tomorrow after work about a 20 minute walk from work, I figure I'll be able to do it in 15. What's especially frustrating is work has been really supportive and facilitating at every juncture up until now so I can't even really be that mad about it. I know why they're doing this and it makes total sense for them. We've been stupid slow and there is no justifiable reason for them to keep the late shift except to appease me and I'm only one guy. They're losing lots of money keeping the office open that late and not making enough back for doing so. If it was for some stupid punitive reason I'd be more choked but... Life, eh?
