Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha

Traditionally, this chant is used at the beginning of a new venture, a journey, or a new year, to clear the path ahead of potential difficulties. This chant invokes Ganesh, also known as Ganesha, Ganapati, The Lord of Beginnings, The Remover of Obstacles, and The Deity of Good Fortune.

What he symbolizes:

  • His elephant head: The elephant is a symbol of strength and power. Whilst many wild elephants are not dangerous, the ones that are found alone in the wild are extremely dangerous and often destructive. In this way, we can understand that there is a somewhat fearful yet respectful relationship with elephants in some parts of the world, and whilst they often come across as gentle and calm, they have the potential to wreak havoc if they’re treated badly.
  • His large ears: These show that he listens to those who ask for help from him, with the largeness of them representing his ability to listen to many people.
  • His large head: This symbolizes his intelligence and thinking ability.
  • His small mouth: This indicates that he listens more and talks less.
  • His small eyes: These are for concentrating and one-pointed focus.
  • His large stomach: This shows that he is able to consume and digest all the good and bad in life
