Ganesha is the elephant-headed god, son of Shiva and Parvati. “Gana” means troops or multitudinous spiritual attendants of Shiva, and “isha” means Lord, so Ganesha is the “Lord of the troops.” Ganesha is the remover of obstacles and is always invoked at the beginning of any endeavor. He also represents the earth element – the root chakra – which needs to be solid before we can fly. Ganapati and Gananatha are two other neames of Ganesha. “Pati” means Lord or protector, and “natha” means Lord, so Ganesha, Ganapati, and Gananatha really mean the same thing: “Lord of the troops.”

Sharanam means refuge, protection.

Gan Gan is part of the bija, or seed mantra of Ganesh. This core sound doesn’t carry discursive meaning. Bija mantra are said to contain the essence of the deity. I seek refuge in Ganesha. Please protect me, oh great Elephant.
(Written by Jai Uttal)

“Though Ganesha is worshiped as the elephant-headed God, the form is just to bring out the formless. Ganesha is unborn, attribute-less, formless, and he symbolizes the consciousness which is omnipresent. Ganesha is the same energy which is the reason for this universe – the energy from which everything manifests, and into which everything will dissolve.”

 

 

 

We are deaf. Words cannot reach. But some special songs can reach into our conciousness,

they have an important role in spiritual awakening, since they are coming from the knowers

to us, some  of them are very ancient and they are brought to us from generation to generation,

till here today.

We have to keep this tradition.
