A Sphatik (quartz) Ganesha idol symbolizes purity and its crystal clear white light acts as a catalyst of energy. The combination of Ganesha and Sphatik is the ultimate protection from outside negative vibrations, is a conductor for strength and positive energy and also removes obstacles and purifies the atmosphere around us. The stone works on spiritual, mental and physical facets also.
Ganesha is the chosen idol that can help overcome any planetary issues particularly helping to remove the malefic nature of Mars and Ketu. Ganesh is worshipped to bring Siddhi (success) and Buddhi and is the deity of education, wisdom and knowledge.
Every aspect of the Ganesh idol represents deep meaning and provides us with unlimited benefits; his big ears enable you to listen more, his small eyes encourage you to concentrate, his small mouth reminds you to talk less, his one tusk represents for us to retain the good and throw away the bad, his Modaka symbolizes the rewards of Sadhana, his large stomach tells us to peacefully digest all the 'good' and 'bad' in life, his tusk shows high efficiency and adaptability and his hand raised in blessing, means that he is forever protecting us and showering his blessings on us.
The best placement for Ganesh is the northeast space in your home which is the best direction to offer prayers, if this is not possible then North (the home of Lord Shiva, father of Ganesha) or West facing is good, but avoid it facing South.
