Panchamukhi Ganesha: The Lord with Five Heads


Panchamukhi Ganesha is shown having five faces. Pancha means Five and mukhi means faced. Panchmukhi Ganesha is embodiment of all potencies. The most relevant meaning of the five-headed Ganesh is certainly that these heads symbolize the five kosha .

Annamaya kosha: the flesh body made of matter 

Pranamaya kosha: the breath body, or energy body 

Manomayakosha: the mental body 

Vighnnamayakosha: the body of the Upper Consciousness 

Anandamayakosha: the body of Cosmic Bless. 

Thus, the fifth head of Ganesh symbolizes the highest level of yogic experience, called Anandamayakosha, or Sat-Chit-Ananda , the Pure Consciousness without qualification. Dimension 36 inches x 60 inches
