Ganapatyas the worshippers of Ganesa (q.v.). They can scarcely be considered as a distinct sect, Ganesa being worshipped by all the Hindus as having power to remove all difficulties and impediments. Hence, they never commence a journey or engage in any important work without invoking his protection. Some, however, pay this god more particular devotion, and therefore may be considered as specially entitled to be called Ganapatyas.
