Malas & Mantras – Om Ganesha
“Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha”
This mantra is a salutation to the remover of obstacles Lord Ganesha.
Ganesha is one of the most popular and well known deities honored throughout India and Hindu cultures. Easily spotted with his large elephant head and pot bellied human body, Ganesha is also the God of success and revered for his wisdom and cleverness. These qualities combined with the ability to remove obstacles lead believers to a ritualistic practice of invoking Lord Ganesha before beginning any auspicious work or activity, having faith that he will bless the path of new ventures.
