From Back of the Book
This book displays state of the art scholarship on the mythology literature iconography and

practice surrounding Ganesa. No single scholar could take on the range of traditions texts

languages and practices that are represented here. It is a case of strength through diversities of

scholarly in original sources.

Paub B. Court right Emory University
I liked the wide-range of information presented about Ganesa from a variety of Asian countries.

The depth of detail it makes available the transitions of texts otherwise not available the data

on actual rituals and the data it gives on Tantrism. The book will be useful to those who want to

explore a single theme that has run through South Southeast and East Asia. It is especially

significant for the insight it provides into Tantric practices in Tibet and Japan.
Dennis Hudson. Smith College

This book examines the complete Ganesh for the first time. Here is the God in his multiple forms

from the different geographical areas in Asia. Particularly important are chapters that deal with

his Buddhist and Tantric forms. The controversial question of his origins is also thoroughly

discussed.

It provides a great deal of original and unpublished material which will be of much interest to

scholars in the field. It will be an indispensable reference work on the subject.
