Ganesha Mool  Mantra or Beej Mantra is one of the most important mantras used to worship Lord Ganesha. It is known as the Mool/Beej Mantra because it has within it the true essence of Lord Ganesha and chanting this mantra pleases Him for being addressed the best way possible or so say legends.

Each of the words like Shreem, Hreem, Kleem Glaum Gam etc are classic phrases used in Sanskrit mantras. They address the fundamental concepts that make creation possible like desire, purity, auspiciousness and all other forms of positive energy concepts that make life and creation possible.

Chants are always repeated for a lot of times and the rhythm created produces a trance like state but not one that dulls or lulls the senses but a certain kind of trance that induces a heightened state of consciousness. Beginning from our navel, the sound is said to travel upwards through the oesophagus, into the vocal chords, finally escaping from the mouth. This energy thus generated is said to have the power to purify the body and mind, instilling positive energy that helps in the daily affairs of man.

Modern science has only begun to understand the subtle intricacy of sound waves that can be used to heal the sick, plants, and animals alike. It has been seen for instance that cows give more milk and trees bear richer fruits when subjected to good music. Every human being who has ever been interested in music would know how it has the power to influence our moods. Sometimes it reflects the exact state of our mind and sometimes, it helps in improving our state of mind.

When one cites these examples one does not talk of any particular kind of music but refers rather to specific kinds of vibrations that are produced by sound. Vedic chants are such formulaic creations, like the Ganesha Mantras and the mool mantras of other Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The composition of these mantras work at two levels:

Firstly, the meaning of each word and expression brings to the conscious mind, the various aspects of divinity that make life possible. Such information can further be interpreted in two ways; one is a religious interpretation and the other rational or philosophical, sans religious colouring. Those who believe in the divinity of the Vedic Gods follow their principles as a matter of faith and the non believers observe the philosophical significance of the principles represented by each deity. Many non-believers have been known to choose to convert to Hinduism and many more have decided to continue with their original faiths, but have benefited a lot from using the philosophical insights gained from the Vedic Gods.

Secondly the Ganesha mantras when chanted, especially the powerful ones like the Mool Mantra, generate a sonic field in and around the body of the chanter and the energy produced is capable of warding off negative forces and strengthens among other things, the immune system, the nervous system and even the circulatory systems.

Therefore when one talks of the Ganesha Mool Mantra, one should understand it is not some random incantation but is in fact a very deep and profound mixture of philosophy and science designed at least 3000 years ago for the benefit of all mankind. Religious affinity or secular curiosity, Lord Ganesha’s Mool Mantra has the ability to reach out and remove the obstacles and bring material and spiritual success to one and all.

It is said that the Adi Shakti or the primordial power created Lord Ganesha long before human beings were created. He was created Jai ganeshabefore everything – even before the earth and the sky, the sun and the moon and the galaxies. He is said to be the eternal witness of this cosmic universe and is the possessor of every bit of knowledge of this universe. As lord Ganesha was created by the almighty without any cause of male and female relationship he is also the incarnation of purity and chastity of every creation.

Hindus worship lord Ganesha as the deity who will always be there to protect his ardent followers from all the evil in the world. He is also the god who grants people the blessings they seek with good fortune and prosperity. The chanting of the Ganesha mantras is believed to invoke a magical bond between the devotee who is chanting the mantras and Ganesha. As the presiding deity of the Mooladhara Chakra, also the root chakra, Ganesha is often invoked and worshipped as the beginning of all awareness and the starting point of the rise of that energy that lifts us spiritually and makes us united with the divine.

The Vakratunda mantra is the most popular mantra to invoke and satisfy Ganesha. This particular mantra offers salutation to the supreme lord with a crooked trunk and massive body that shines like hundred thousand suns and showers blessings on every form of life in this universe. He is also prayed to for removing all obstacles or Vighnas forever and to assist in all successful endeavours. This is often considered as the most popular mantra that is used to invoke and satisfy the lord.

Ganesha MantraThe Ganesha mantra for prosperity has the word ‘gam’ at its base, which is also consider as the beej mantra that is used to seek the blessings of the God. Through this mantra Ganesha’s devotees seek good fortune along with his blessings and wishes. The mantra also invokes the god to protect us with long, healthy and happy life. ‘AUM gam ga~Npataye namH’ is perhaps the shortest form of the mantra that is used to pray for prosperity and happiness from the elephant headed god. One must understand that in ancient Hinduism a mantra is never a mere collection of words but it is the actual way that connects the human beings with the gods and is known to have miraculous power when chanted properly. Ganapati Mantras are the easiest way of invoking the deity and letting him shower his blessings.
