Ganesha’s Spiritual Influence

Lord Ganesha with his elephant head, disarming smile, pot bellied physique, holds a special place in the hearts of Hindus. Apart from his physical features which symbolize various virtues that one should possess, it is the material and spiritual powers that he can bestow which attracts people. Revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts, sciences as well as the deva of intellect and wisdom, devotees throng towards him in the hope of acquiring some benefit. Mantras, which are a set of invocations and rituals, have been used since ancient times to invoke the qualities of a deity within a person. Hence the mantras associated with the Lord of the senses, Ganesha, helps channelize a person’s energies towards a fruitful outcome. Negative thoughts or emotions are at once banished if the worship is sincere and the dhyana practiced over those mantras is devout.
