Ganesha Mantra

Om Gam Ganpataye Namah

This is the Mantra dedicated to the Lord Ganesha.

Ganesha is one of the more popular and well known Hindu deities.  He is the one with the elephant head, and known to be the remover of obstacles and negativity.  So chanting the mantra dedicated to him “Om Gam Ganpataye Namah is known to ward off obstacles and negativity.  It is recommended to chant it at the beginning of new projects, new work or a new life stage.

You will also get benefits from hearing the mantra or writing it.

It is translated as:

” I bow down to the almighty Lord Ganesha with all my existence and I accept all his great qualities in myself. ”

Sit or stand in a comfortable position and start to breathe softly and slowly.  When you are ready, begin to chant.  Find your rhythm, your tone, your speed.  Allow the chanting to be joyful and light, without any strain. Give attention to how it feels to chant, rather than whether you get the ‘lyrics’ or the rhythm right.

It is recommended to chant at least 11 times.  Multiples of 108 are considered best.

Have fun with this and pay attention to how you feel, during and after.  Enjoy!

Namaste, Bettina
