Learn about the Hindu deity Ganesha, revered as the remover of obstacles. When Ganesha lost his tusk, he turned that challenge into an opportunity. Discover the power of perception by creating optical illusions. Reflect on how the obstacles in our own lives can be viewed as gifts, depending on how we look at them.
