Ganesh
Mantra Siddhi Jaap 

Before
learning How To Do Ganesha Mantra Jaap let us first understand

What is
Japa?

JAPA, OR RECITATION, IS THE SPIRITUAL
PRACTICE
of
devotedly repeating a mantra, generally a specified number of times,
such as 108, often while counting on a strand of beads,called a japa
mala, while conscientiously concentrating on the meaning of the
mantra. The repetition should be dutifully slow. This brings punya,
merit, to the devotee. It should not be thought lessly mechanical or
the hurried, so-called rapid-fire or machine-gun japa, which
demonstrate ignorance of the tantras. Such casual, nonchalant
negligence and disregard for contemplative traditions brings papa,
demerit, to the devotee, creating internal strife, community
opposition and turmoil for all concerned.

Lord
Krishna says in the Bhagvat Gita

Of
all the Vedas I am the Sama Veda!

Of all the Yagnas I am the
Japa yagna!!

Thus highlighting the importance of japam.

Japa
is a form of devotional worship, invocation, supplication, praise,
adoration, meditation and direct, experiential communion. Unless we
are actually in a state of samadhi
(total absorption)
,
which is rare for most people, japa provides a means to disengage
from our racing thoughts and our memories of the past — mostly the
bad ones. The repetition of positive, uplifting, spiritual mantras
over and over again lifts consciousness and causes the muladhara
chakra to spin clockwise. We feel uplifted. Life does not look so
bad, and neither does the past.A sense of forgiveness comes and the
future looms bright. The past is forgiven and forgotten.Japam can be
done by everyone. However for yagnas certain conditions are
mentioned.

There are three ways by which one can do Japam

1.
Ucchahi
– loud recitation – less effective

2. Upamshu
– soft recitation – more effective

3. Manasikam
– within the mind – most effective.

OM
is the basic vibration of the cosmic universe. Hence all mantras
begin with “OM”.

Benefits
of Japam

1.
Physical – to energize the system (to tone up the system)

2.
Mental – to remove depression/obstacles/mental blocks.

3.
Spiritual – Attaining Siddhi,self-development/specific areas of
growth(strengthening the inner-personality by projecting positive
powers inwards; over-coming/eliminating negative traits).

Ganesh
Mantra Siddhi Jaap

Invoking
Lord Ganesha

Lord Ganesha is invoked through the mantra Aum.

The Mandukya Upanishad elucidates the inner meaning of Aum,
which embodies the highest wisdom.
Aum
has three syllables.
A
represents the waking state.
U
represents the dreaming state.
M
represents the state of deep sleep.
Aum
in its entirety, plus the moment of silence which follows
it,represents the shanti, the peace beyond understanding.

Thus,
Aum
japa performed as an invocation to Lord Ganesha, the Lord of Wisdom
and Knowledge — while love is welling up from our hearts and tears
are for no reason flowing simultaneously — calls forth the knowledge
of the entirety of our existence in these four categories of
consciousness. These are realms that God Ganesha rules over as Lord
of Categories, and this is the knowledge that He can grant devotees
who perform Aum japa and meditation on the meaning of Aum.

Methods
to do Aum japa

1.
For Aum japa to be effective, the mantra must be pronounced
correctly. The first syllable is
A,
pronounced as the English word “awe,” but prolonged: “aaa.”
The second syllable is
U,
as in “roof,” pronounced “oo” but prolonged:
“ooo.” The third syllable is
M,
pronounced “mm” with the front teeth gently touching and
the sound prolonged: “mmmm.” Each repetition is sounded for
about seven seconds, with two seconds on
A,
two seconds on
U
and three seconds on
M,
with a silence of about two seconds before the next repetition. The
three syllables are run together: AAUUMM (silence), AAUUMM (silence),
AAUUMM(silence). On the first syllable,
A,
we feel the solar plexus and chest vibrating. On the second syllable,
U,
the throat vibrates. The third syllable,
M,
vibrates the top of the head. Thus, proper chanting of Aum also is a
high form of yoga, moving energy from the lower chakras of the body
up to the highest chakra, or energy center — the sahasrara chakra at
the crown of the head.

2. Another traditional way to do this
japa is to take a full breath and then chant the AUM
three times as you exhale. The first repetition is audible, the
second is more quiet and the third is barely audible, as you
concentrate within. Then inhale slowly as you visualize the image of
our loving Lord Ganesha in your mind. Then repeat the AUM again three
times as you exhale. The breathing should not be forced, but natural,
slow, gentle and rhythmical. We can use a japa mala with 108 beads
and pass over one bead for each repetition, or do the japa for a
prearranged period of time.

Ganesha
Siddhi Mantras:

Those
so mystically inclined and knowledgeable of the seven chakras below
the muladhara use these powerful incantantions under the direction of
the guru to close off these regions of the mind one by one and free
consciousness from deep depression, confusion, jealousy, rage,
lingering anger and fear. Some such mantras are given below for the
spiritual benefit of the readers.

1. Aum
Shri Ganeshaya Namah

meaning
“Praise to Lord Ganesha.” This is the mantra of invocation,
adoration and worship. It is repeated at the beginning of pujas and
it can be used for japa, to invoke Ganesha’s blessings for the
auspicious beginning of a task, project, change of life, community
undertaking or simply to offer Him our praise. This mantra is usually
taught to children for their good education. It increases their
memory power, and they become successful in their examinations. Of
course, people of any age may use this mantra when taking courses in
a school or university, and for success in attaining their
degree.

2. Aum
Gam Ganapataye Namah

This
is Lord Ganesha’s mula (“root”) mantra. It is also known as
His bija mantra, for it combines Ganesha’s bija (“seed”)
sound, “gam,” with the phrase, “Praise be to
Ganapati.” This mantra is used for yoga sadhana in which we
invoke Ganesha and merge ourself with His supreme knowledge and
peace. These two mantras are not harmful if mispronounced, as
sometimes happens, though they should be sounded as properly as
possible to be most effective. Most importantly, they must be chanted
at the same time each day, and this means exactly the same time, for
full devonic support. This is a mantra from Ganapati Upanishad. One
may always use it before beginning a journey, new career or job, or
before entering into any new contract or business so that impediments
are removed and your endeavor may be crowned with success.

3.
Aum
vakratundaya hum

This
is a very powerful mantra, as discussed in the Ganesha Purana. When
something is not working properly, individually or universally,
nationally or internationally, or when the minds of the people turn
crooked, negative, depressed or discouraged, the attention of Ganesha
may be drawn by this mantra to straighten their ways. The HUM
symbolizes “Delay no more, my Lord, in straightening the paths
of the crooked-minded ones.” This mantra is used many times in
the Ganesha Purana to curb the atrocities of cruel demons. In
addition, this mantra could also be used for healing any spinal
deficiency, such as curvature of the spine or curved limbs. Dedicate
1,008 repetitions of this holy word to straighten and heal such
deficiencies.

4. Aum
kshipra prasadaya namah

Kshipra
means instantaneous. If some danger or negative energy is coming your
way and you don’t know how to get rid of that trouble, with true
devotion, practice this mantra for quick blessing and purification of
one’s aura.

5. Aum
shrim hrim klim glaum gam ganapataye

vara varada sarva
janamme vashamanaya svaha

There
are several bija (seed) mantras in this mantra . Among other things,
it signals, “Shower Your blessings, O Lord. I offer my ego as an
oblation.”

6. Aum
sumukhaya namah

This
mantra has a lot of meaning, but to make it simple, it means you will
be always very beautiful in soul, in spirit,in face, everything. By
meditating on this mantra, very pleasing manners and a beauty comes
on you. Along with that comes peace, which constantly dances in your
eyes; and the words you speak are all filled with that power of
love.

7. Aum
ekadantaya namah

Ekadanta
refers to one tusk in the elephant face, which means God broke the
duality and made you to have a one-pointed mind. Whoever has that
oneness of mind and single-minded devotion will achieve
everything.

8. Aum
kapilaya namah

Kapila
(red) means that you are able to give color therapy. You are able to
create colors around yourself and around others, bathe them in that
color and heal them. As per the mantra you create,so will you create
the colors. Another meaning is “wish cow,” the “cow of
plenty.” It means that whatever you wish, that comes true. There
is a wish-cow inside you. Whatever you wish, especially for healing
others, comes true immediately.

9. Aum
gajakarnikaya namah

The
ears of Ganesha, the elephant, are constant fanning, which means
people may talk a lot,but you are not receiving inside anything other
than that which is important.It also means that you can sit anywhere
and tune this cosmic television (the body) with seven channels
(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.

10.
Aum
lambodaraya namah

This
means you feel that you are this universe. It means that all the
universes are within you. Like an entire tree is in the seed, the
whole universe is in the sound of creation, which is Aum, and that
Aum consciousness in you makes you feel that you are the universe.
Therefore, if you say, realizing the oneness with the universe,
“shanti to the world” every day, then the grace of God will
come and there will be world peace, universal peace. It is the
universes within Aum ad Aum within you.

11. Aum
vikataya namah

This
means realizing this world as a dream or a drama. When you are in
that high consciousness, this whole world looks like a dream. All of
us have taken a role. We have to play our role in life as wife or
husband or children or citizens, all consistent with the role we have
taken. When an actor bitten by a sponge cobra that is brought on the
stage falls, the entire audience cries; but that boy who has fallen
knows it was not a real cobra and he is not dead. Life is a drama
–definitely life in this material world, this physical world of ego,
is a drama. But inside, like the boy on the stage who is quite happy
knowing that he didn’t die by the bite of the sponge cobra, like
that, the truth never dies in us; it is immortal. So everything else
you consider as drama. That consciousness comes to you by knowing
this mantra.

12. Aum
vighna nashanaya namah

This
mantra invokes the Lord Ganesha to remove every impediment in your
life and in your works. By constant meditation on this mantra, all
obstacles and blocked energy in your physical and astral bodies are
released.

13. Aum
vinayakaya namah

Vinayaka
is the name of Ganesha in the golden age. So by realizing this
mantra, your life will have a golden age. In your office, in your
work, you’ll be the boss. Vinayaka means something under control.
Vinayaka means the Lord of problems.

14. Aum
ganadhyakshaya namah

This
mantra is so important. Suppose you have a group, a country,
neighbors, or any kind of group therapy, group healing or a whole
country needing healing, then you have to bring that entire group to
your mind’s arena and say this mantra. A group healing takes place by
this mantra.

15. Aum
bhalachandraya namah

In
Sanskrit, bhala means the forehead center. Chandra means the crescent
moon. Bhalachandra means that chakra from where the nectar drips.
That is the secret of all healing. It is to feel yourself as Siva,
identifying yourself with the Truth and feeling constantly that you
are carrying the crescent moon, the symbol of growth and nectar and
peace.

Feelings
after Mantra Jaap

1.
When the ganas and devas of Lord Ganesha are finally attracted to the
home shrine, the room will feel filled with actinodic energy even if
it is a closet or a small sacred alcove.

2. The energy will
come out of seeming nowhere into the room. This feeling indicates
that Ganesha’s ganas are present, eager and willing to do whatever
they can to maintain shanti, peace, within the home and bind the
family together. Nothing bad, hurtful or harmful will ever be
performed by them, even if fervently prayed for. Only good and
goodness will be their actions. They do not condone revenge. They do
not deny anything to anyone who is within dharma’s calling. And they
do work within the prarabdha karmas of each individual within the
family. Theirs is a calculated job in doing what they have to do to
maintain family togetherness, even at great distances.

Results
of Ganesh Jaap

Ganesha
mantras are siddhi mantras. Each mantra contains certain specific
powers of Lord Ganesha. When chanted with the proper pranayama
(rhythmic breathing) and sincere devotion, they will yield good
results.

1. In general, Ganesha mantras will ward off all
evil.

2. Bless the devotee with abundance, prudence and
success.

3. Evil spirits dare not enter the home or the mind
of the devotee where Ganesha mantras are recited.

Precautions
for Ganesh Jaap

1.
One should bathe or wash the limbs before sitting for repetition of
the mantra.

2. One should do three or more pranayama before
beginning the mantra.

3. The minimum repetition of the mantra
should be one full mala, or 108 times.

4. When this is done
at a fixed hour and place regularly for 48 days, it becomes an
upasana, which means intense meditation, that will yield siddhis, or
spiritual powers.

5. One should use those powers only for
healing the sick and other such selfless actions for the benefit of
mankind.

6. These powers should not be misused. Misuse of
power may bring the curse of the asuras(Demons).
