No book about this beloved elephant-faced God is more soul-touching. The lord of Dharma will come to life for you in this inspired masterpiece. It makes approaching this benevolent Lord easy and inspiring. "In this book, Satguru Subramuniyaswami proves his profound knowledge, his deep intuition and wisdom and his heartfelt devotion and love of Lord Genesa, the guardian of the Sanatana Dharma, the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and science, the mediator and intercessor between man and god. He is the god on our side, our friend, indeed, our protector and benefactor. "In an excellent, clear and cultivated style, with simple words and a refreshing, subtle sense of humor the Great Genesa is introduced to the reader. Each and every aspect, relation, symbol and meaning of Lord Genesa has been explained and detailed skillfully, along with mantras, prayers and pujas to pay reverence to the merciful elephant-faced God. Many may think of Lord Genesa as a little-overweight, pompous, elephant-headed Deity who belongs somehow to the hindu pantheon, but with whom he never really has gotten acquainted. If this has been your case, then Loving Genesa has come to you at just the right time to get the right answers to all your questions and bring you closer to the magnificent and charming Ganapati, the treasurer of all knowledge and great ruler of the universe "I express my heartiest thanks to Satguruji Subramuniyaswami for this wonderful book from which pours forth an abundance of divine nectar, wisdom and bliss. May all readers be bestowed with happiness, prosperity and the divine protection of the merciful, loving Genesa" (Sri Sri Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, International Sri Deep Madhavananda Ashram Fellowship, Vienna, Austria).
