"Ganesha mantras are siddhi mantras . Each mantra contains certain specific powe rs of Lord Ganesha.

When chanted with the proper pranayama (rhythmic breathing) and sincere devotion, they will yield good results. In general, Ganesha mantras will ward off all evil and bless the devotee with abundance, prudence and succes s. Evil spirits dare not enter the home or the mind of the devotee where Ganesha mantras are recited. "One more point to remember is that one should bathe or wash the limbs before si tting for repetition of the mantra. Also, one should do three or more pranayama before beginning the mantra. The minimum repetition of the mantra should be one full mala, or 108 times. When this is done at a fixed hour and place regularly f or 48 days, it becomes an upasana, which means intense meditation, that will yie ld siddhis, or spiritual powers. Another warning to bear in mind is that one sho uld use those powers only for healing the sick and other such selfless actions f or the benefit of mankind. These powers should not be misused. Misuse of power m ay bring the curse of the asuras. "This is a mantra from Ganapati Upanishad.

According to Kundalini yoga, Ganesh, also referred to as Ganapataye, resides in the first chakra, called Muladhara (muladhara). Mula means "original," and adhar a means "foundation." The muladhara chakra is the principal origin from which th e manifesting energy of Shakti resides within each of us. When we awaken that en ergy, it helps us move through the Chakras with ease to activate a strong sense of self, express Divine love, communicate clearly and connect with our intuition .

I suggest you use this mantra when you want to clear the Chitta Vritti, or the a nxious chatter of the mind. ========= Ganesha is also known as Vighnavinayaka, or the Remover of Obstacles . It comes from the word vighna, which means obstacles, hurdles or impediments. A

vighna can be a hard challenge that enters your life from time to time, but it c an also be the hurdles you face on a day-to-day basis, such as tensions in relat ionships or at work. There are two types of vighnas: Internal and External. When we learn to remove t he internal vighnas, the external ones are automatically removed. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to be so successful in their lives? Why everything just seems to go their way, and anything they touch turns to gold? Why they go through their life with little conflict in their relationships? Well, it s because they have worked the vighnas out of their system. Once you remove the vighnas out of your system, you will automatically move towa rds success. This is Ganesha s secret to wisdom and wealth.
