Hari Sarvothama Vayu Jivothama
Sri Ganapathy antharkatha Sri Vishwambara murthiyae Namaha!
Sri Sri Raghavendra Gurubyo Namaha
It is my bhagya to write an article on Sri Ganapathi on his auspicious day i.e, “Ganesha Chaturthi” which is celebrated throughout Bharatha desha on 25-08-2017. It is on this day Sri Ganapathi took birth in order to save sajjanas. This article has been written based on my limited knowledge and I sincerely pray Lord to correct the mistakes(if any).
About Sri Ganapathi:
Sri Ganapathi is Akashadhipati, Abhimani for Akasha, he is the Son of Rudra devaru & a great grandson of Lord Sri Hari. He is a Brahmachari. He comes in 18th position as per Taratamya concept of Jagadguru Sri Madhvacharya,along with vishwaksena, ashvini devatas,kubera&seShsa shatasthas. While doing archana we praise him as “Shipra prasadhaya Namaha!” Meaning, he is the one who bless us immediately if prayed with sincere devotion.
This is a very important ability and capacity of him. He does the upAsana of vishvaMbhara ParamAtma – having 19 faces and the central face is the Elephant face. He is thus called Gajamukha. As per Gayathri mantra of him starting ‘Vakrathunda Mahakaya..’ here thunda means face and vakra means one who gives speech to talk about Lord Sri Harih. He has another name called ‘Vignaraja’ means one who removes obstacles and gives way to enrich kundalini power.
Jagannatha dasa says, “Oh Ganapathi, I pray to you everyday to enable me carry out my functions without obstructions by energizing my manas. Please protect the sajjana-s in this way. You are the one who has the karuNa of vEdavyAsa dEvaru.”
