​Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!​

On the joyous festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, beginning on September 19, devotees install Lord Ganesh’s idols as a way of welcoming Him to our homes.


​What is Ganesh Mudra?​

Lord Ganesh is also called as Vighnaharta — remover of obstacles. Ganesh mudra is said to put you in touch with the power that removes both physical and mental obstacles.


​How to perform Ganesha Mudra?​

Start by bringing your palms to touch in Anjali Mudra. Swivel your hands so that your fingertips point toward opposite elbows, with your right palm facing your heart. Bend your fingers and lock them in the heart area. The elbows are directed to the sides.


​Breathing directions​

Close your eyes, inhale, pull your elbows to the sides while exhaling, trying to uncouple your fingers, then exhale and relax. Repeat this process six times, then repeat on the other side six more times.


​Final step​

Disconnect your fingers, put your hands on your knees, relax and focus on your breathing, stay in this position for a while.


​Mantra chanting​

To deepen your practice, combine Ganesh mudra with Ganesh mantra practice. When performing the mudra, chant: Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha.
