Ganesha – one of the most popular Hindu Gods is also known as vighna-harta or remover of obstacles. He is pratham pujya (the first one to be offered prayers to).

Before conducting pujas of other Gods and Goddesses, devotees honour Ganesha by offering their prayers to him. And ahead of weddings, the first invite is given to the elephant-headed God. Such is his stature. This is done to prevent obstacles in the path of any new venture, beginning or journey.

Chant this easy shlokha to thank and praise the Lord for his magnanimity.

गजाननं भूतगणादि सेवितं

कपित्थ जम्बूफलसार भक्षितम्

उमासुतं शोक विनाशकारणं

Gajaananam Bhuta Gannaadi Sevitam

Kapittha Jambhuu Phala Saara Bhakshitam

Uma Sutam Shoka Vinaasha Kaarannam

Namaami Vighneshvara Paada Pangkajam

Meaning:          

I salute the elephant-headed God...

Who is served by the Bhutas and the Ganas,

He who loves to eat wood-apple and the jambu fruit

Son of Uma (Parvati) and the destroyer of sorrow

I bow at the lotus-like feet of Vigneshvara (remover of obstacles).
