The Ganesh Mantra
There are many chants to Lord Ganesh, but a simple and powerful one used a lot at Yoga You Sanctuary is this:
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
…or, Aum Gan Ganapatye Namah
The pronunciation is also pretty easy:
Om = ohm or aum
Gam = Somewhere between “gahm” and “gum”. In some dialects it is “guhng”.
Ganapataye = gah-nah-paht-ah-yeh
Namaha = nah-mah-hah
This is Lord Ganesha’s mula (‘root’) mantra. It is also known as his ‘beej’ Mantra. This mantra is used for Yoga Sadhana in which we pray to Lord Ganesha and merge ourself with the supreme knowledge and peace. This is a mantra from Ganapati Upanishad. One can always use it before starting any new venture so that success comes without any hassle.
‘PRESENCE – GUIDED RELAXATIONS‘ by Ann Simmonett
This CD was produced following numerous requests from Ann’s students, for some way of using the relaxation techniques experienced in class when they were at home. It is more suited to students with experience of relaxation, and not to complete beginners. Ann’s clear voice calmy leads you through the relaxations with gentle music in the background.There are two relaxations included on the CD:
This is designed as a morning relaxation, to provide a positive start to your day. It is based on the auogenic relaxation technique and then leads on to positive affirmations. This is a wonderful way to start the day.
This evening relaxation is intended for practice just before sleep, and is profound. After relaxing the body with tense and relax techniques, the listener is guided through a jourmey om space leading to the light of a guiding star, and eventually back to earth, ready for a deep and restful night’s sleep.
Ann still has a limited number of CDs available for sale at Yoga You Sanctuary, priced £10.
