Shiva is one of the three members of the Hindu Trinity, with Brahma and Vishnu. He represents the aspect of the supreme being that fuels the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe. When he opens his eyes, a new cycle of creation emerges; when he closes them, the universe dissolves. For this reason he is often depicted with his eyes half open, representing the eternal cycle of creation and destruction, with no beginning and no end. Although he is sometimes referred to as Shiva the Destroyer, Shiva is the god of mercy and compassion, protecting his devotees from greed and anger.

Lord Ganesha is the elephant-faced Patron of Art and Science, the Lord of Obstacles and Guardian of Dharma. His will prevails as the force of righteousness, the embodiment of Siva's karmic law in all three worlds. Aum.
Lord Siva, the Almighty Power, created heaven and earth and the God Lord Ganesha to oversee the intricate karmas and dharmas within the heavens and all the earths. Lord Ganesha was created as a governor and interplanetary,intergalactic Lord. His knowledge is infinite, His judgment is just. It is none other than Lord Ganesha and His mighty band of ganas who gently help souls out of the Naraka abyss and adjust them into higher consciousness after due penance has been paid, guiding them on the right path toward dharmic destiny. He is intricate of mind, loving pomp, delighting in all things sweet and enjoying adulation.
Lord Siva proclaimed that this son be worshiped first, even before Himself. Verily, He is the Lord of Karma. All Mahadevas, minor Gods, devas and sentient beings must worship Ganesha before any responsible act could hope to be successful. Those who do not are subject to their own barriers. Yea, worship of Him sets the pattern of one's destiny.
Hanuman was the general of the armies in the war against Ravana, the king of Lanka, in the epic poem "Ramayana." For his loyal service, including helping to liberate Rama's beloved consort Sita from Ravana, Hanuman was blessed with immortality. As evidence of his devotion to Rama and Sita, Hanuman is pictured with the image of Rama tattooed on his chest, and a bell used for ceremonial offerings hangs from his tail. Hanuman is a provider of courage, hope, strength, knowledge, intellect and devotion. He is the son of the wind god and is an avatar (earthly incarnation) of Shiva.
