The popularity of Buddhist Ganesha extends beyond the spiritual. Ganesha is a Sanskrit name for the protector of prosperity and the remover of hindrances in Tibetan Buddhism. He is Vinayaka, a directional Protector. Avalokiteshvara persuades Ganesha to become a Dharma Protector in one of the Tantra stories.
