Ganapathi

in my own life and spirituality, I'm constantly invoking Ganesha -- before every meditation, every healing, every process, concert, whatever. this is part of the Indian tradition, and part of the meditation/spiritual life that I learned in India...

so I'm constantly thinking about, saying a mantra to, or singing about Ganesha. it's common, in the Indian tradition, to be doing that.

I also keep Ganesh statues or images of some kind at every doorway in my home and also down one walkway, before people reach the entry door -- he automatically washes out negativity from people coming into the house and gives them a beautiful blessing.

it's a smart mechanism, to have Ganesha greet people before they enter your home -- in India, if you visit a temple complex, you'll see a Ganesh temple in front of the main temple buildings. people ALWAYS go first to Ganesha, then into the other deities.

    If you are interested in visiting famous ganesh temples around Mumbai, then there's one at titwala. This temple is known as Mahaganpati temple & is known to fulfill wishes of devotees. Came across something interesting on that Titwala Ganesh Temple at
