In most countries like India and other South East Asian countries, it is customary to inaugurate any new venture in the presence of Lord Ganesh. He is the lord (Isa) of the troops of inferior deities, but more well-known as the son of Shiva and Parvati.
The earliest mention of the Vajra is in the Rigveda, a part of four Vedas. It is described as the weapon of Indra, the god of heaven and the chief deity of the Rigvedic pantheon.
Indra is described as using the Vajra to kill sinners and ignorant persons. The Rigveda states that the weapon was made for Indra by Tvastar, the maker of divine instruments. The associated story describes Indra using the Vajra, which he held in his hand, to slay the Asura Vritra, who took the form of a serpent.
