The Ganesh Mantra: Remove Obstacles From Your Life

by Mindvalley January 15, 2019

The Ganesh Mantra is best known for its ability to remove obstacles from our psychological and spiritual lives.

It may not be the most widespread mantra out there, but like others of its kind, it is powerful. And with practice, you will notice its potent benefits.

In this article we will answer the following questions:

  1. Who is Lord Ganesh?
  2. The 6 Benefits of the Ganesh Mantra
  3. When Should You Use the Ganesh Mantra?
  4. How to Chant the Ganesh Mantra

Let’s begin!

Who Is Lord Ganesh?

Ganesh is the son of the God Shiva and the Goddess Parvathi, and the brother of Kartikeya. Parvathi gave birth to Ganesh when she made him out of pieces of clay from her own body.

He is described as having a human body and the head of an elephant, with only one tusk. Although the number of limbs he has varies according to lore, he is typically depicted with four arms, in which he carries a goad and a noose.

He is drawn with a big, round belly – perhaps because he carries a bowl of dumplings!

Although there are many tales of how Ganesh lost his tusk, the favorite is that while guarding his sleeping parents; Parashurama, disgruntled with Ganesh for being denied entry to Mount Kailash, engaged him in battle.

Although Ganesh fought valiantly and was set for victory, Parashurama threw his ax at Ganesh’s head, thereby severing his tusk. Ganesh took the hit without resistance because the ax was a gift from Shiva.

Ganesh is the embodiment of spirituality, wisdom and prosperity.
He protects beauty, grace and compassion.

As with any form of meditation, it’s best to chant this mantra when you are alone, in a quiet area where you will not be disturbed. Make sure you’re comfortable. And it’s best to do it consistently, so make a ritual out of it if you can.
