Lord Ganapathy is Vignaharta, the one who removes obstacles that impede our progress in life. Ganesh, Lambodara, Vinayaka, Vigneshwara, Ekdanta and Gajanana are some of his names. The elephant-faced lord is Adi Baghwan meaning the first of all gods. His blessings also include siddhi (success), buddhi (wisdom or knowledge) and riddhi (prosperity). He’s also a patron of arts and sciences. At the start of any auspicious ceremony, an invocation is mandatory with poojas and homas to appease the lord, the son of deities Shiva and Parvathi.
Lord Ganapathy or Ganesh brings victory, harmony and keeps negative energies at bay apart from removing the hurdles in your life. The powerful god Ganapathy when invoked in a homam not only removes problems but also induces positive vibrations that bring peace into your home. The Ganapathy Homam is a powerful remedy for people going through Ketu Maha Dasa or Bhukti in their natal charts and hence the ritual helps to soothe the malefic effects of Ketu.
Some of the basic materials used in Ganapathy Homa include ghee or clarified butter, Prasad like boiled and seasoned chick peas, modaks, Durva grass, coconuts, bananas, honey, puffed rice and jaggery. Other materials include, vermillion, sandalwood paste, turmeric, camphor, flowers, Ashta Dravya, conch, etc.
Our Vedic priests are highly experienced in performing the homa having superior knowledge of the powerful mantras dedicated to each of the forms of Ganapathy.
