1 Tusk

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. http://magicalindia.info/hinduism/?p=5 With His right tusk broken, he represents the female principle by his right half and the male principle by his left half. So He represents the Transcendental Absolute which is beyond any sexual principle http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Rhodes/2952/gohitvip/11.html
