Though the measure may vary from person to person, Sukh (physical comfort), Shanti (peace of mind) and Ananda (intrinsic bliss) have been identified in our scriptures as the three prime motivations and objectives of life. The worship of Saraswati,Ganesha and Lakshmi reflects this innate philosophical connectivity. The combined imagery, and the cardinal lesson it holds, actually teaches the beholder the art of living.
Learning makes a person knowledgeable and wise.The wisdom he gains enables him to control his senses. By doing so he can enrich his productivity by overcoming obstacles.Such a person is generally blessed with the immeasurable wealth of prosperity and happiness.In other words,without knowledge there can be no progress. Without wisdom, wealth cannot be earned,retained or enriched.To the enlightened devotee, this wealth of prosperity and happiness means being at peace with one's senses, ones duties,one's yearnings and desires. To the average individual,quite appreciably, it stands for financial gain and familial well-being.
The mind is the seat of Saraswati and she resides there in the form of knowledge. Lakshmi also like to stay in home where people work and pray with pure, unblemished minds. Ganesha removes all obstacles from the paths of such people.

Importance of Idol worship: Idols are not the idle fancies of sculptors, but shining channels through which the heart of the devotee is attracted to and flows towards God. Though the image is worshipped, the devotee feels the presence of the Lord in it and pours out his devotion unto it. Regular worship, Puja and other modes of demonstrating our inner feeling of recognition of Divinity in the idol unveils the Divinity latent in it. This is truly a wonder and a miracle. The picture comes to life. The idol speaks. It will answer your questions and solve your problems. The God in you has the power to awaken the latent Divinity in the idol. The lives of Mirabai, Sant Tukaram, Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Shri Yogananda are a few instances to prove the point. They proved beyond doubt that idol worship has its own brighter side and through simple faith and intense devotion one can realize God through it.
Idols are the "finite representation of the Infinite". As per Vishnu Samhita (ch 29, v 55-7), persuasively endorses the use of imagery (idols) and puts it:"Without a form how can God be mediated upon? If (He is) without any form, where will the mind fix itself? When there is nothing for the mind to attach itself to, it will slip away from meditation or will glide into a state of slumber. Therefore the wise will meditate on some form, remembering, however, that the form is a superimposition and not a reality."
