UcchistaGanapati UcchistaGanapati, Tantricform of Lord Ganesha
UcchistaGanapati is the 8th form among LordGanesha’s 32 forms. Many websites modern books described this Ganesha form as an exclusive Tantric deity form (associated with unclean things like orts, whose worship belongs to vamachara). But it is not true as per an ancient scripture known as “UcchistaGanapathi Puja Vidhanam’. The scripture explains the puja procedure in detail along with all slokasmantrams. UcchistaGanapati is also mentioned in 16 types of Ganesha (ShodashaGanapati). But this form of Ganesha is not included in EkavimsathiGanesha forms (21 forms of Lord Ganesha).

Appearance & Iconography of UcchistaGanapathi
UcchistaGanapathi appears in blue colour (and in some scriptures, describes as black complexioned). He is ChaturbhujaGanapathi (four armed). In his hands, he holds a blue lotus, pomegranate, a sprig of paddy, veena (musical instrument), and prayer beads, holding his Shakti in one hand.
