Meet the Lord of Obstacle
My White Ganesh is holding Green Tara in the Yab-yum pose using even his trunk to hold her tight. The Yab-yum form of Ganesh in Japan is called Shoten because Ganesh removes obstacles.
I hope you can meet your obstacles willingly with joy and happiness. Transform them into your teaching lessons. For example, my obstacle is a lack of patience. So, I have given myself many opportunities to learn how to be patient.
