Siddhi and Buddhi are considered as the two consorts of Lord Ganesha. There are believed to have been created by Lord Brahma for the specific purpose of marrying them to Lord Ganesha. According to ancient puranas, Once Lord Ganesha wants to get married a girl containing the qualities of his mother Parvati Devi. Since no matching girl was found similar to Parvati, Lord Brahma decided to create two holy girls, in order to get them married to Lord Ganesha.

Brahma used his entire powers, and created two lovely girls and named them as Siddhi who gives enlightenment and Buddhi who gives cleverness. They are worshipped along with Lord Ganesha, and found in lot of temples. Some important temples are as follows:

Siddhi Buddhi are worshipped for getting better prospects in our life, to remove the obstacles in our life, to live a disease free life and to get relieved from all sorts of problems in our life.

They are mentioned in the Ganesha Purana and various other puranas and they are depicted as seated in both sides of Lord Ganesha, and embracing their beloved husband.  The Ganesha Temple at Morgaon is the popular temple, and here Lord Ganesha is worshipped along with his two consorts Siddhi and Buddhi. It is believed that the divine couples are having two sons Kshema who gives prosperity, born to Siddhi, and Labha who gives income, born to Buddhi. Mata Santhoshi is considered to be the daughter of Lord Ganesha and she satisfies all of our wishes, and gives wisdom, knowledge, courage and boldness.
