Heramba Ganesha is regarded as the eleventh among the 32 different forms of Ganesha and is largely worshipped in Nepal. The Mudgala Purana mentions Heramba Ganapati as one of the thirty-two names of Ganesha. The Skanda Purana lists that Heramba Vinayaka as one of the 56 Vinayakas in the vicinity of Varanasi. Heramba also figures in the lists of Ganesha?s names in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana (8 names), the Padma Purana (12 epithets) and the Cintyagama (16 Ganapati). Heramba is also used as an epithet of Ganesha in the Ganesha Purana. The name has two components ?He? which means weakness or helplessness and ?Ramba? which means protection. Thus Heramba denotes the one who protects and sustains the weak. Heramba also has the power to confer fearlessness and bring defeat or destruction to one?s enemies. The colours of Heramba?s heads closely relate to five aspects of his father Shiva ? Ishana, Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva and Sadyojata. Heramba is considered to be one of the fiercest forms 242 243 of Lord. There is also a mention of worshipping the mystical form of Heramba Ganesha in three-fold in Pancamnaya Srikrama of Sri Mahatripurasundari wherein the first stage, the Shiva forms are propitiated using five mantras for each of the faces. In the second category, the Lord is worshipped through five mantras invoking the Great Goddesses. Finally, the worship is concluded with five Ganesha Idols.
