About Resting on the Back Ganesha :
Ganesha's idol is characterized by a big pot- belly, which represents generosity, contentment and abundance. His fan-like ears represent the right discernment, and convey that He is all ears to the petitions of His believers. The Ekdanta or single-tusk of the Ganesha represents focus and direction in life. The Ganesha idol with its trunk curved right bestows boons of moksha or salvation, and liberates the soul from worldly fetters.
