The Remover of Obstacles

Before embarking on any important endeavour, Hindus call on Ganesha (also known as Ganapati) to clear the path of any obstacles and to ensure the success of their new venture. Ganesha is the elephant-head god, and Hindu mythology is filled with beautiful stories of him. He is the son of Shiva and Parvati and is said to have a sweet tooth.

Chanting the following mantra: “Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha” helps to clear obstacles and is a good mantra to use in conjunction with other mantras. Chanting this mantra will remove whatever obstacle or barrier there may be. It can also help you resolve inner conflicts that you may be projecting onto external situations.

A  lovely bhajan to sing is the following:

Ganesha Sharanam Sharanam Ganesha (x2)

Gum Gum Ganapati Sharanam Ganesha (x2)

Ganesha Sharanam Sharanam Ganesha (x2)

Gum Gum Ganapati Sharanam Ganesha (x2)

Jai Ganesha Jaia Jaia Ganapata (x2)
