He has no master above him. He does not depend on anyone.
GANESHA He is also known as Ganapati. This term means he is the lord of the gana (Team) - a class of divine entities. This term also means that he is the master of the intellect and discriminating power in man. He possesses great intelligence and knowledge. Such knowledge issues from a pure and sacred mind.

The mouse (rat) is the vehicle of Ganesh. What is the inner significance of the mouse? The mouse has a keen sense of smell. The mouse also symbolizes the darkness of night.
