Tirukkural 1: The Praise of God

As the letter A is the first of all letters, so the eternal God is first in the world

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Worship of Lord Ganesha sets the path of dharma. Go to His Feet. He alone can perform this miracle for you. He will release the mental and emotional obstructions to spiritual progress. He will remove the burdens of worldliness.
