Lord Ganesha : Indian Mythology !

Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha – “Om and salutations to the remover of obstacles for which Gum is the seed.”

Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Pahimam

(Jay = glory to, victory Ganesha, Pahiman – Please Protect Me)
Sharanam Ganesha (I take refuge in Ganesha the remover of obstacles)

Ganesha = the elephant-headed god; son of Shiva and Parvati.The name Ganesha consists of: “gana” + “isha”.“Gana” means troops or multitudinous spiritual attendants of Shiva.“Isha” = “Lord”.Therefore Ganesha is the “Lord of the troops”. Ganesha is the remover of obstacles and is invoked at the beginning of any endeavor. He alsorepresents the earth element, the root, which needs to be solid before wecan proceed.Sharanam = refuge, protectionGan Gan = These are parts of the “bija” , or seed mantra of Ganesh; they are his core sounds and don’t carry discursive meaning. Bija mantras are said to contain the essence of the diety. Ganapati = another name of Ganesha. “Gana” means “troops” and “Pati” means Lord or protector. So “Ganapati” and “Ganesha” really mean the same thing, “Lord of the troops”.
