Devatas and Upa Devatas
Sree Dharma Sasthavu
Lord Ayyappa and Dharmasastha are the incarnations of the same infinite power. Legends say that after achieving his birth goals, Lord Ayyappa merged into Dharmasastha. Sabarimala Ayyappa is also said to be an unparalleled power that the Thanthrik practices separated from Dharmasastha for the purpose of worship.
Sree Maha Ganapati
Lord Sree Maha Ganapati (Ganesh Bhagavan) is the god of knowledge and the remover of obstacles. Lord Ganesha is worshipped, or at least remembered, in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings and auspiciousness. He has four hands, elephant’s head and a big belly. His vehicle is a tiny mouse. In his hands he carries a rope (to carry devotees to the truth), an axe (to cut devotees’ attachments), and a sweet dessert ball “Laddoo” (to reward devotees for spiritual activity). His fourth hand’s palm is always extended to bless people. A unique combination of his elephant like head and a quick moving tiny mouse vehicle represents tremendous wisdom, intelligence, and presence of mind.
