Bija Ganapati carries a goad and a noose in two of his four arms. The other two hands display specific types of yoga mudras, namely Abhaya Mudra and Varada Mudra. The elephant headed Lord is seated over a lotus seat. The ancient Hindu religious texts also describe another form of Bija Ganapati wherein He is depicted with ten arms and purple complexion. The Lord is seated in Padmasana (lotus position in yoga). He holds separate objects in his right hands, such as, sugarcane, a trident, a chakra, paddy and goad or mace. While the left hands carry a broken tusk, corn, an utpala, a noose and a conch.
