The mouse and modak:
Placing the Ganesh statue alone at a favourable spot won't bring you much luck. You have to ensure to keep the right elements encompassing lord Ganesha. The presence of the mouse(mooshak) and the modak(Indian sweet) are some overlooked important aspects, incorporation of which can bring more prosperity. They are the most favourable and crucial aspect of the Ganesh Murti. The mouse represents consciousness and ego to control desires like wealth and prosperity. Modak is one of the favourite sweets cherished by Lord Ganesha, and it signifies concentration and not being carried away by sheer joy. Thus, these two remain unscathed.

Besides this, it would be the best practice to worship the idol regularly, which would, over time, open the entire pathway to inner peace and successful life. Furthermore, refrain from keeping any Ganesha statue in private spaces like bedrooms.
Placing Lord Ganesha in your home transmits positivity and success. Follow the right Vastu tips to bring good luck in your home, while placing the Ganpati statue to reap the blessing of Lord Ganesha.
