Om Gum Ganapateye Namaha

A simple mantra to reflect upon this morning. Using our mala beads, we can chant this mantra 108 times. Mala beads are a tradition brought forward from India and were taken back to Europe during the time of the crusades.


The idea of the mala is that using the beads to chant and reflect, a deeper sense of peace and inner wisdom will arise within us.

The link connects to a site where you can listen to Deva Premal chant the mantra over and over – 108 times. Deva is a simply amazing woman with the gift of light and love in her heart and wisdom to share that with everyone.

We can sit and chant with her, listen to her chant – or do something completely different and all our own. No matter how we practice the chant, the meaning will carry with us throughout our day. Om Gum Ganapateye Namaha is a chant to the remover of obstacles. Throughout our day, we can be mindful that as obstacles arise; we are aware of them and move around, over, under or through them in order to arrive at success in our endeavors. With practice and time, wisdom and spirit – our obstacles will cease to appear as obstacles before us and more as opportunities for change and growth.
