1) Om Gam Ganapataye Namah

Om = The sound of the universe
Gam = The secret power sound of Ganesh. It is his “seed syllable” or bija mantra.
Ganapataye = Another name of Ganesh, the breaker of obstacles.
Namaha = I bow

This is a mantra from the Ganapati Upanishad.

This is great to use before beginning a journey — a new course in school, new career or job, or before entering into any new business. The goal is to remove impediments so your journey may be crowned with success.


2) Aum Ekadantaya Namah

Om = The sound of the universe
Ekadantaya = One tusk
Namah = I bow

#Ekadanta refers to one tusk of the elephant faced Lord Ganesha. This means God broke the duality and made you have a complete one-pointed mind. Chanting this Ganesha mantra will help in filling your mind with the feelings of oneness for a single-minded devotion.

Om = The sound of the universe
Lambodaraya = A name of Ganesh that equates his large belly with the inanimate and animate creation and wisdom of the cosmos
Namah = I bow

This mantra means that all of the celestial bodies are inside an individual. The entire universe is comprised inside the mantra Aum (Om), which is the sound of creation and that Aum consciousness in a person makes him feel that he is the universe.


4) Aum Vighna Nashanaya Namah

Om = The sound of the universe
Vighna = Hindrance
Nashanaya = Tower above
Namah = I bow

5) Aum Ganadhyakshaya Namah

Om = The sound of the universe
Ganadhyakshaya = Ganesh’s name as the leader of Gana
Namah = I bow

Lord Ganesha is the leader of the Gana. It is believed that chanting this mantra by thinking a group of people in your mind will help in a group healing.


6) Aum Gajakarnikaya Namah

Om = The sound of the universe
Gajakarnikaya = Ganesh’s constantly fanning ears that only receive what is important
Namah = I bow

The word Gajakarnikaya refers to the ears of Lord Ganesha which is similar to that of an elephant. By chanting this mantra, you can tune your body with seven chakras and all 72,000 nadis, to any loka and be able to hear ancestors, angels, the voice of God or the voice of prophets. That kind of inner ear you will develop through this mantra.
