#49-Shodasa Ganapathi Krithis – Muthuswami Deekshithar Compostions

Ganesh Chaturthi, or Vinayaka Chaturti, is the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the God of wisdom, prosperity and auspiciousness. Tomorrow it is Ganesha Chathurthi which is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the God of wisdom. “Ga” means intellect, “Na” means wisdom and “Pathi” means master. Hence, Ganapathi means the master of intellect and wisdom.

Ganesha is worshipped before the beginning of any endeavor. He gives the necessary skill (buddhi) to do the task and bestows success (siddhi) to the effort. Upon intent meditation, the form of Ganesha symbolically reveals many noble truths. The trunk of an elephant, which can carry heavy logs of wood as well as pick up a thin blade of grass, represents the subtle discrimination we need to distinguish between the real and the illusory. The little mouse he rides on represents our own ego, which should be a small but efficient vehicle to take us around in the world, but should be inconspicuous and subservient to wisdom. Ganesha’s form is revered as the very personification of the symbol Om the representation of  the universal spirit.symbolism_Ganesha_3
