One delightful way to honor Lord Ganesh and celebrate his birthday, Ganesh Jayanti, is by chanting Mangaladata Kripasindhu. In this namasankirtana, we invoke the presence of the beloved elephant-headed deity by chanting his name and the divine qualities he represents—auspiciousness and compassion—while connecting with the joy in our own hearts. Just as an elephant moving through a dense forest clears a pathway that other animals may use to pass with ease, on the Siddha Yoga path we can invoke Lord Ganesh to remove obstacles in our lives and on the path of sadhana, the goal of which is to become established in the bliss of our own Self.
