Ganesha Mantras

How to use Ganesha’s ideologies in real life

Lord Ganesha, the one tusked pot bellied Hindu deity, starts all things auspicious in the Hindu culture. He is worshiped for the said wisdom, prosperity and luck he bestows on his devotees. Looking at the idol of Lord Ganesha, the potbelly, the humble mouse as the vehicle, the large ears, the elephant’s head and the broken tusk, we can wonder how this deity is considered to be one of the most strongest God.

In our lives we encounter questions every day. Questions that bog us down and make us feel how to overcome problems and lead a happy life. Lord Ganesha’s ideologies are not esoteric and can be implemented easily if we go by his example.

In his physical form Lord Ganesha is pot bellied and has large ears but he has used his stomach to gobble demons and all the food that the arrogant Kubera served. He has large ears and an elephant’s trunk, but he uses the ears to listen to the woes of the world and the trunk to remove obstacles. He uses a humble mouse as his vehicle to travel around the world but the humble mouse can carry the mighty Lord. These ideologies help us deduce that in life all of us will have limitations. Limitations may not just pertain to what we are born with but also the situation life puts us in. It is solely up to us to use them to our advantage.

Lord Ganesha is the God of wisdom. He exhibits other qualities like prosperity, wealth and knowledge too. But the reason he is primarily known to be the one with the most wisdom is because a man may have intelligence and wealth, but without wisdom he wouldn’t know how to direct the two into something fruitful. Lord Ganesha had the wisdom to write what was dictated to him by sage Vyas. He also had the wisdom to break his own tusk and write the Mahabharata, when his pen broke. The text is considered to be one of the most holy texts in the Hindu literature. The noteworthy aspect of this attribute exhibited by Lord Ganesha is that, it is important to finish what one commits oneself to. We might leave a task in the middle and not mind that it is unfinished if we face a hurdle. If we overcome the fear we may achieve something that is beneficial to us in the long run.

Lord of the “Ganas”, destroyer of arrogance, vanity and other inner demons, remover of obstacles, he represents wealth and propagates spirituality. This encourages us to attain the balance between spiritual growth and the material desires. The desire of wealth and prosperity is not evil, but having no purpose for it for others, who live around us, makes it useless.

Being on the most powerful Hindu deities he is perhaps the most approachable God. Due to his countenance and his lessons it becomes easy for everyone to understand and feel secure about embracing his faith. Though Ganesha’s lessons are tough to implement but the nature in which they have been preached by Lord Ganesha makes it easy for us to understand them.
