Numeroastro Handcrafted Natural Valampuri Vellerukku Vinayagar (One Piece)-The speciality of this Valampuri Vellerukku Vinayagar deity is the curvature of the trunk. His cute trunk is curved towards the right side. Hence the name Valampuri. This is no ordinary Ganesh. He is a very rare find and doubly auspicious. Valampuri Vellerukku Vinayagar idol of Ganapati with the trunk curved towards the right is called dakshinmurti or dakshinabhimukhi murti (the idol facing the south). Dakshin means the southern direction or the right side. The southern direction leads to the region of Deity Yama (Yamalok), the deity of death while the right side belongs to the Surya nadi (Sun channel). One who is able to face the direction of the region of Yama is powerful. So also, one with an activated Surya nadi is also radiant. Thus in both senses, the Ganapati idol with the trunk curved towards the right is said to be ‘active (jagrut)’.
