Ganesha or Ganapati is known as Siddhivinayak in Hinduism because it is thought that he is the giver of all Siddhis, which means perfection, achievement, success, or skills.

All Siddhis are found in Ganapati, and we can only attain them with His help. As a result, we say the mantra, Sri Ganeshaya Nama, before beginning anything new.

With Ganesha’s grace, a Siddha is someone who has completed or is continually perfecting in the Siddhis and enlightenment.

Some of the major siddhis that develop as a result of Siddhivinayak’s blessing

Levitation, invisibility, bilocation, becoming smaller than an atom, clairaudience, clairvoyance, telepathy, telekinesis, ability to materialise anything at will instantly, travelling at the speed of thought, remote viewing, power of a healing touch, healing gaze, resurrection, eternally young body, rainbow body, and physical immortality.

Siddhivinayak is flanked by Riddhi and Siddhi -His two wives. Siddhi signifies intellectual and spiritual qualities, whereas Riddhi represents money and success.
