Ganapati Om Jaya Ganipati Om
Ganapati Om, Guru Ganapati Om
Translation: Greetings and praise to Ganesha, my guru (the one who leads from darkness to light).
Ganesha, often depicted as having an elephant’s head, is the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences, the deva of intellect and wisdom.
You can hear Devadas’ melody that we’ll use for this mantra about twenty minutes into this video.
